Another Year …

I’ve just caught the final two episodes of this years Doctor Who… and I’m gutted…
Being a [bit of a] geek, it goes without saying that I’ve got a fondness for Who; and under it’s latest incarnation I’ve been totally hooked. But it’s not all been ‘Love and Monsters’ …

When Ecclestone left at the end of the ‘first’ season I felt cheated. Cheated because of having to wait so long for the show to resurface, only for it to be done so to launch what seemed like a fading career, only for him to leave it for dead. I was worried that the show would suffer – it didn’t. David Tennant totally ‘Owns’ this role now and I can’t imagine it being played by anyone else.

When I first heard Billie Piper was to be the Doctor’s companion I scratched my noggin and wondered if it was a good idea – she wasn’t exactly an established actress and her reputation (imho) was tarnished due to her very public relationship with Ol’ Ginge. However – she rocked in the role of Rose, but then … She leaves! WTF! That’s why I’m gutted, the relationship between Doctor and Companion had just become so amazingly deep, only for it to be severely severed! It was an awesome way to end the series, but was it emotional or what?! [yeah, it was...]

But if there’s something I’ve learned over the last couple of years, that is the gen ious that is Russell T. Davies never fails to deliver. So when I saw Catherine Tate in a wedding dress in the final moments of ‘Doomsday’, my immediate reaction of utter dread was replaced by a shrug, a sigh and a laugh.
But now what? I’ve got to wait another 6 months for the Christmas Special and then another year for the next season … oh for a Tardis …

Bye then .. [sniff] ..
