Forrest of the Dead review

I liked it.

Of course River was doomed just like I thought. It's just too poetic for a writer NOT to have the Doctor's first meeting with his future lover be her last meeting with him. And in my opinion she's definitely his future lover. It requires an incredible depth of intimacy for her to have known his name. (I thought that was beautiful by the way. I wish I knew his name).

I didn't however, expect her to be "saved." And the fact that all her friends from the expedition were saved too is really sweet. Stephen Moffat came back to his line, "everybody lives." I think that's wonderful. It's a strange existence, I'll give you that, but at least it's a really nice one.

Donna losing her man was pretty sad too. My heart pinged a bit for her when he tried to call her name but couldn't.

And as far as all the Doctor/Rose shippers being upset by River, I'm just not that worried about it. I love the Doctor/Rose ship, but as intrigued as the Doctor was by River, and as much as her "spoilers" effected him, he's not in love with her now. He's not going to be in love with her for quite some time. This does not effect my ship.

But then again, I really liked "The Girl in the Fireplace."
