    Father's Day - Discussion Views: 2731

    am I the only one here that didn't break out the kleenex for this episode? I love it, and think it is one of the best of the season, but I didn't get weepy. I can't relate that this episode is hard to watch in a schindler's list kind of way. I find this story to be a beautiful example of a father's love, even when he's not a particularly good father. Rather than being tragic, which it sort of is, I saw it as a heroic, noble thing. Also the right thing. But competely necessary. I am very moved every time I watch it, but not beside myself with grief so that it makes the episode hard to watch. Now my wife...she cried.

    Father's Day was probably the episode that firmly ensnared me into Russell T. Davies' web... it made me realize that I not only *liked* the new Doctor Who, but genuinely *loved* it. This episode reduced me to a blubbering little boy, and I share that fact proudly. Nearly everything about this episode struck me as profound.

    Like Rose, my father died when I was just an infant, and I have spent the last 30+ years of my life wishing I could remember anything at all about him. All I know is old photographs and stories from my family, and sometimes that's just not enough... and if I had found myself in Rose's position, with the power to alter history, I would've done the exact same thing... paradoxes and Doctor be damned. Genius.
