A Good Man.....

Well I re-watched it – not expecting the greatest thing ever this time round. And actually I enjoyed it and it made a lot more sense for me than it did on first viewing.

Having said that of course you shouldn’t need to re-watch anything to understand what is going on and that is probably a fair criticism of this season thus far as much as I love it.

The Rebel Flesh..

You know... I am not sure that I actually liked that. I found it difficult to 'get into' and not particularly engaging. I also found some of the plot points a little difficult to follow. I was doing something else at the same time and maybe it is because I committed the crime of not giving Doctor Who my undivided attention..

Wedding guest...

I am not sure who did this, but I think it is excellent!
