The Cybermats were good -- and I liked the redesign -- they kept enough of the old to make them recognizable but added enough 'new' to give them some spit-and-polish. They even more resembled the original Cybermats than the later redesign in the Fourth Doctor's era (never did like the deign on those Cybermats).
Something else that should be noted......
Was Matt Smith great with that baby or what? I did wonder how he would do but he didn't fail to impress.... again.
I thought this was a great setup to the season finale. As far as the gay jokes, I thought the episode did a brilliant job turning the usual panic on its side. Even funnier was the idea that the clerk was willing to watch their baby for them while they were apparently using the store for a rendezvous and how willing she was to let them have some alone time.
The gay joke thing was kind of eh. Not offensive but didn't really add anything to the story.
The end with River was interesting.
Amy as the face of a perfume line? Where did THAT come from?
Stormageddon! That stuff with The Doctor telling Craig everything Stormageddon (the hell with the name Alfie) said was just perfectly priceless.
The "partner" stuff was fine. Even if it weren't on a queer-friendly show like Doctor Who, I can't see why that'd be offensive.
Also, echoing the above statements, I need a Cybermat now! Were the teeth something they added in for the new show?
No they had teeth before ... cheap foam-rubber teeth, but they had them in the original design. In the Tom Baker days those got traded out for feelers.
Even then, it's hard to call the ones on the old Cybermats "teeth."
But the mouth-plate opening to reveal organic teeth? Oh yeah, that's new. XD
Did anyone notice the name of Amy's perfume? Think it was significant?
