At least he looked, before he leapt. Granted it has little chance to improve his safety for this action.
At least the Doctor had the Tardis when saying that.
I love this scene, it’s a lot deeper than what the comic relief part suggest. Simon has never been a man of action before, he’s a stereotyped sceintist and as such a pure intellectual. With that jump, it’s the end of an “innocence”, and he’s going to improve physically, learning to be capable on the battlefield. Very symbolic.
Very insightful as always. 🙂 I like your take on the subtext of the scene. 🙂
They called me mad! Lets see what they think now that I’ve destroyed the world!
Allright, bets everyone! Who’s betting he’ll go *splat*?
Weeeell.. Certainly *hoping* he’ll become a splatasaurus, but it’s pretty unlikely since that’d remove the chief bad guy from play in the middle of the hike to the climax.
Maybe he’ll at least make a big crater and throw up from motion sickness or shock or something.
Thanks for stoppin’ by, folks. There’s a few familiar faces I haven’t seen in a while. Good to know you’re still enjoying the story. 🙂
He is certainly very brave and dumb, for not testing on himself if the banestone still works.
There goes my heel-face-turn theory.
