purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)
My initial thoughts after watching the Vampires of Venice was that it was a fairly run-of-the-mill runaround. It's never going to be one of the Doctor Who classic episodes, but it's enjoying itself doing a Hammer Horror rip-off and is lifted by Helen McCrory's sympathetic performance as Rosanna.

So this isn't really a review. It is merely masquerading as one. What I thought was the single most interesting part of the episode was the comparison between Arthur Darvill's Rory Williams and Noel Clarke's Mickey Smith. So I'm going to talk about that instead.
