Oh my God, the TWoP Doctor Who recaps are JUST GETTING WORSE!
It's about intimacy, interaction; the quality of how you choose to spend your time -- and what you do with the information. It's about intimacy.

OH GOOD SWEET JESUS, he's at it again. Is it really "about intimacy"? Really? How fascinating and insightful. And then goes on for an entire page about Gnostic mythology and really, I'm as geeky as the next person and I love reading intelligent academic essays on pop culture, but....IT'S DOCTOR FUCKING WHO! Christ.
Something above roars. Like a lion, like a God.

Or like a big scary CGI monster that's there to send us running behind the sofa rather than waffling on pompously about Zoroastrian myths? Seriously, this is some of the worst writing I've ever read in my life. It is truly, truly atrocious. It's so bad it actually enrages me. And yet I keep coming back each week, like a masochist!

Ooh, this could almost become a weekly game to discover the most ludicrous line.

One of my contenders:
Whether it's the nightly news or a sci-fi show, a show is not brainless if you engage with it -- the quality of the entertainment is always directly dependent on the quality of the viewer, how much you are willing to risk in engagement.

Or:

The Doctor moves freely in four dimensions. She lives in two. It's creepy to him. And creepy, intransitively, but this is a parable, after all.

Yeah. Nowhere close to "like a lion."

Hee! No, I think both of those are possible winners in the most-preposterous-line competition! Especially the second one. Good grief.
