Doctor Who “Sleep No More” S09E09 Review
Do you remember that episode of Supernatural where Dean had to be Death for a day? And when some guy died, he asked Dean about the meaning of life and Dean quoted, in typical Dean fashion, Kansas’ “Dust in the Wind”? That’s what “Sleep No More” made me think of.
Seriously, the fact that “Sleep No More” didn’t feature “Dust in the Wind” is actually kind of criminal. Just check out these lyrics: “I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment’s gone. All my dreams pass before my eyes with curiosity. Dust in the wind. All we are is dust in the wind. Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea. All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see. Dust in the wind. All we are is dust in the wind.”
ALL WE ARE IS DUST IN THE WIND.
There was a brief moment in which I actually thought about just posting the lyrics to the song as my full review and calling it a day. But as fun as that would be for me, it’s probably not that funny for you. I also suppose, given the nature of the episode and the way it ended, it’s probably worth discussing the found footage style, Clara’s brief time in the Morpheus pod, and how disgusting those Sandmen actually were. Now that I’m thinking about it, maybe Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” is a better choice of theme music for this episode because this episode wanted desperately to be a waking nightmare. And in a way, it kind of was, though maybe not in the way writer Mark Gatiss intended.
“Sleep No More,” the first stand-alone episode of Season 9 (Gatiss originally planned it as a two-parter, and I’ve never been more glad that someone realized there wasn’t enough story to sustain the format), was constructed of “found footage” from the wreckage of the Le Verrier Space Station orbiting Neptune. However, it was really all an elaborate set up by Rassmussen, or the creature that still wore the face of the mad scientist who’d created the Morpheus machine that allowed men and women of the 38th Century to reap the benefits of a month’s worth of sleep in just five minutes.
