I don't take Doctor Who very seriously, but what a hell of a romp this season was!
  • Looooved Martha and I hate to see her go. But I like that she's not just pining for The Doctor. Strong women are fabulous.

  • The Tinkerbell solution of everyone thinking together seemed iffy. If they'd all thought love or freedom, or even no instead of Doctor, that would have felt more satisfying to me.

  • OMG, David Tennant gave such a fabulous performance on many levels -- sometimes big wild and over-the-top but also subtle, internal and touching.

  • The Master didn't chew the scenery quite so much this time, yay! Also, I like the choice of death over eternity.

  • What made Lucy change? She seemed drunk or drugged, but she said "Doctor" and shot The Master. Was that her hand picking up The Master's ring? And what does the ring mean?

  • Jack is The Face of Boe, what a wonderful image.


I liked the last episode, but I liked Utopia better. Teenboy loved it and can't wait for the next series. T'husband is looking forward to Torchwood. A family that watches Doctor Who together squees together :-D

ETA: According to fajrdrako, Freema will be back as Martha next year, and in Torchwood for three episodes as well

Highly recommended: a fantastic essay by thingswithwings about the whole season and how it fits with many fascinating themes including T. S. Eliot’s poem “The Hollow Men.”

Off to the mountains tomorrow, <3 you all, see you next weekend!

I like camping but hate cooking, so this works out. Tent cabins, activities and three meals a day :-)

Ooh, the mountains. I'm so jealous, living in the flatlands is no fun.

We aren't big travelers, but we have such fabulous mountains that we get off our butts once a year at least.

But I like that she's not just pining for The Doctor.

yeah, that really irked me about martha. maybe now she can move on to hot pediatrician man someone else.

The Tinkerbell solution of everyone thinking together seemed iffy.

totally. how did that even work? how did everyone thinking "doctor" allow the doctor to free himself?

David Tennant gave such a fabulous performance on many levels

he really did! i nearly cried when he yelled "regenerate!" ;_;

What made Lucy change?

if you look closely toward the end of the episode, lucy has some faint bruising around her right eye. the master had been beating her, i'm guessing. also, the way he kept grabbing her and forcing his tongue down her throat suggests that wasn't all he was doing to her. i think she finally saw a way out and a way to save herself from him.

Jack is The Face of Boe

i love that! so very cool. :D

have fun in the mountains!!

Ah your thoughts on Lucy make lots of sense. Though I hope they go into that more next year!
