The Geek Seek: the week in geek TV ending 20 June 2010

Many apologies for the delayed “broadcast” of this post, and at any rate it’s still lean pickings. There’s no much to see here except our good old, soon to be ending staple. It’s been a really busy week for HereBeGeeks, with trip planning, the World Cup, and real life going on so any potential new series to watch have been put on the far backburner for now. In the meantime, here’s the show that I put down everything for.

Doctor Who
You probably guessed what show I was talking about! Yep, we’re back to more whimey timey escapades – and the culmination of 11 episodes of the past season unfolds before us (together with some old bits of seasons past). We’ve had slow burning intermittent season threads like the earlier Bad Wolf, but this season’s crack in space and time has had a more consistent buildup, which various hints dropped all throughout the season (or obvious things, such as, say, a huge crack) constantly calling back to the end of the universe. Rumours have been flying all over the internet, and not we finally have some answers. I wonder how many of us expected it to really turn out this way? But when you think about it, it all makes perfect sense. The question of River Song continues to hang over the series, with them leading opposite, parallel lives, and I don’t think it’s just me – it’s obvious that Song will have a huge part to play… will this be Matt Smith’s swansong? (No.) Also, it’s nice to see some cameos, but they look like they were filmed separately, so that wasn’t so nice. Steven Moffat has really done a great job directing the course of this season, and I for one cannot even begin to figure out what’s going to happen after this cliffhanger – and what next season promises to be. The very last episode promises to be edge of your seat stuff – let’s see if we get some weird Russell T Davies influences.
