Doomsday: First Glance

Wow! Just wow! I think it’s taken me a couple of days to assimilate that final episode. Doomsday was stand-out Who. From the revelation of the Genesis Arc; through the witty interchange between the Cybermen and the Daleks; to the solid, emotion-packed performances of the main actors. And that music – the baritone chanting heralding the Daleks; and the haunting theme backing the final moments between Rose and the Doctor. Just wow!

Miss Jones

Martha Jones and the DoctorThe Doctor’s new companion has been revealed: the actress Freema Agyeman, who plays an ill-fated and very dead member of the Torchwood technical staff in Episode 12 of Season 2.

I’m sure they’ll have a very good explanation for her turning up as the Doctor’s companion – an identical twin? Parallel universe copy? Perhaps a member of the undead?

Army of Ghosts: First Glance

Possibly the best Doctor Who episode ever. How could the pay-off from this 45 minute episode fail to please anyone? Even if the ultimate conclusion somehow lacks the necessary excitement or satisfaction – you can always go back and watch repeats of ‘Army of Ghosts‘ – and know that you have witnessed something good!
