So I only JUST watched the episode so I may be really late to the party here - but did anyone catch that intense Rose Tyler/ Bad Wolf reference in the new Doctor Who episode?
Earlier on in the episode the Russian professor guy was telling Clara about how when he’s nervous or scared he sings Duran Duran (because he really likes western 80s rock).
And so when we didn’t know whether or not Scaldak (Skaldack? Scaldack? idk) was going to blow up the ship, Clara kind of softly sings “Lost and I’m found…and I’m…hungry like the wolf…” and then all of the switches turn off, and everyone is saved.
I about shit my pants. Like because we KNOW that Rose is coming back for the 50th. I’m really hoping stuff like this happens a lot so we have like…an old Russel T. Davies style mindfuck with all of those subtle hints that add up to something INCREDIBLE.
And then at the end when the Doctor and Clara both said “Brilliant!” which I can only assume is a 10th Doctor reference.
oh man. So great.
