It's probably a laser beam your interrupt by passing through. Unlike movies, laser beams are not usually visible. The whole point of a laser beam is that it forces light to go mostly the same way in the same direction, likely not into your eye, so that's normal. It's also probably not a frequency y...

I thought the mini-sode was neat. Not really getting the super-hyped reaction other people get, but I didn't watch old-who so I guess it's understandable. Definitely would watch more mini-sodes with the 8th Doctor. Or any Doctor, really.
