Awww, yeah.

(Previous good Bob the Angry Flower Dalek strips here, here and here.)

It was good to see a Dr Who episode that ended in the traditional way - screeching into the theme music with a dramatic zoom onto a completely stupid-looking monster.

Silly monster.

Now that's what I'm talking about. (It's good to see that G'Kar's chin is still getting work.)

Father Dougal in excellent cat makeup, OK, that's got its appeal. But people having all of the water in their bodies sucked out by a dude in a bubble-wrap suit is the way it's meant to be.

On the subject of that eternal-traffic-jam episode, I quite liked it once I started treating it as a sort of Borges story rather than sci-fi. It was only spoiled by the hamfisted foreshadowing of the Obvious Next Villain, And It'd Better Be Jonathan Pryce Playing Him Or There'll Be Trouble, You Already Made Me Cross With Those Guys With Huge Heads That Turned Out When They Took Their Helmets Off To Be Space Rhinos Or Some Shit Instead Of The Army Of Sontarans I Was Hoping For.

The modern Doctor Who is all just fantasy with sci-fi paint on it, of course.

But, y'know, could be worse.

    The new Doctor Who is pretty good. I don't really get your comment about Jonathan Pryce though. You want Dalek-Sec to be played by him? :-P

    new doctor who is great, just a pity that the last 2 eps are okish, first 3 were great :):):):):) lets see more action that does not involve joining the darleks to the humans.

    Phew! What a relief! I thought I was the only saddo in the world who was gutted that they turned out not to be Sontarans! :D

    Jonathan Pryce? Good call!

    More new BTAF Doctorage here (personally, I preferred the Third).

    Look, I'm sure he's a lovely fellow, but but it's just not the same without an inhumanly piercing stare and a widow's peak. The absolute minimum requirement is a goatee.

    I heard the John Simm rumour on BBC Radio 4 the day after the post - couldn't bring myself to tell you ;)

    I did enjoy Life on Mars though ...
