Does anybody else think...
.. that the premise of Tooth & Claw sounds like the result of a drunken Think Up A Mad Idea For A Story Competition?
You know, RTD, Gatiss and Moffat are having a few absinthes and the conversation turns to (with apologies to Izzard)...
"Right, we've had Charles Dickens Versus The Trans-Dimensionsal Gas Zombies, how can we top that?"
"Errrrrr... Oliver Cromwell and the Spiders From Mars..?"
"Wat Tyler meets the Robot Ninjas?"
"Jim Morrison battles the Fifty-Foot Chinchilla?"
"Isambard Kingdom Brunel fights The Cyborg Leprechauns... Elvis Versus Dracula... Christopher Columbus against The Telepathic Shark-Mutants From The Future... Jesus In Space... Shakespeare Invents Teleportation... Miguel De Cervantes Meets The Samurai Bats... Queen Victoria Versus The Kung-Fu Werewolf... John Lennon and Martin Luther battle the Evil Surfer Droids..."
"Wait, go back one..."
Well, it made me laugh.
Good episode tonight, I thought.
