I know what I'm saying here is nearly a week old now, but as I was cueing up the video player for Clueless last night, Gridlock (Who 3.3) was on on BBC3, and something caught my eye which I hadn't spotted the first time I saw it (on Tuesday in the end, I think).

Unlike last time, I couldn't find the full episode on YouTube to grab a screencap from - only stupid slushy Martha / Doctor fanvids with emo soundtracks that didn't include the shot I wanted. So the only thing I could do to share this image with you was to put the episode on 'On Demand' this morning, and actually take a photo of my TV screen. Not, of course, the best way to get a good-quality image - in fact, you can even see me in the picture with my camera, reflected in the screen. But I think you will get my point nonetheless. Just look at the stack of three mugs visible behind one of the two Mrs. Cassinis as she reads her car-spotting notes out to the Doctor:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Edit: much better-quality proper screencap now available here.

Now, given the subject-matter of the episode, is that not a masterfully subtle bit of mise-en-scène? There's a set-dresser out there who deserves a BAFTA in my opinion. (If there even are BAFTAs for that sort of thing - I hope there are).

Can't wait to see what's in store for us tonight...

Ooh, thanks - that's ace. I'm loading it up for a better screencap right now.

Bah, it keeps stalling and refusing to work! Never mind - like I said, you can see the three mugs well enough from the image above, anyway.

I'm taking it a reference to traffic lights.

Ah, bit odd that there's three mugs for two ladies though.

They seemed like polite types who like to keep a good house car - I 'spect the third's for guests.

Or 'as a reference', even...
