    Oh, and also, Vinnie, yesterday (Sunday, the 24th), BBC America ran THE GIRL IN THE FIREPLACE. I don’t think it was an accident.

    I didn’t think I would like Peter. But after Deep Breath, I just might.

    I really liked the “phone call” scene at the end.


    PS: Please check out my Doctor Who fan-fics “The Aresian Saga” and “A Knight in Time”

    As soon as the dino horked up what was choking it, i said (to no one in particular) “Okay, it’s gonna be one of THOSE seasons.”

      …and i love the new fan-designed opening credits (echoed in the new TARDIS interior)..

    • You have to start the season off with a bang, and some fun. More often than not (at least since Tom Baker) regenerations have always been laced with a bit more silly. Cases in point, Tennant starting to quote The Lion King, and Smith channeling Tigger.

      I don’t think we’ll see that much screaming comedy this year, tho we’ve been promised at least a bit.

      But I do think the Paternoster gang needs a break. And Strax, as magnificently adorable as he is, has rendered Sontarans unusable as a villain. Note their cameo appearance in the previous episode, where they are solely there for a larf.
