Steven Moffat seems to make it his goal to freak us all out about every inanimate object in our homes. Pretty soon, any Doctor Who fan will have to come to terms with the fact that going outside simply isn’t safe anymore. So what are we scared of boys and girls: Weeping angel statues – check, shadows – check, children’s dolls – check, kids in gas masks – check, and even innocent children’s songs – check.
It never fails that when I see various scientific experiments being done, especially ones that are close to the plots of science fiction films, something lingering in the back of my mind wants to yell out “NO!!!! Haven’t you seen X”. This is of course with “X” being a stand in for things like 28 days later, Planet of the Apes, Threads, Terminator etc. I know it’s illogical, but I don’t want to be the guy reminding everyone that the giant “hellmouth” opening in New York could have been avoided if these guys ever played Doom 2.
