Doctor Who

I'm heading out, so can't do a proper reaction just now, but..

That? Was fucking awesome. If coalescent does his "best RTD episode" poll again, THIS WINS. And it didn't have any Doctor in, hardly. How weird.

I am actually speechless. Er...typeless? Whatever.

I cannot do a proper reaction because I sit down to organise my thoughts and EPIC FLAIL OF EPIC slaps me and I am left thoughtless from awesome. Hooooly.

That too. I think I might just point everyone to blue_condition's post, because he actually still has eloquence.

Stunning.

Donna Noble is officially T3H B3ST C0MP4N10N 3VAH. Or at least Catherine Tate is by far the best actress ever to play one.

Yes. The scenes with Rose, when Billie Piper was obviously having trouble getting back into character (and with the dentures, and was her face always quite that...rhomboid?), just showed the difference.

The thing is, when Catherine Tate's not shouting (something directors shouldn't encourage her to do) she's a very, very subtle actress. Very televisual - the tiniest changes of expression, smallest gestures, things that convey a lot - she is phenomenally good in closeups.

Billie sadly didn't stand a chance against her.

Yep. Can't remember if you watch Heroes, but she's a lot like Hayden Panetierre - you can just shoot a close-up of her face and let it tell the story.

I lasted 5 minutes into the first episode of Heroes then about 2 minutes into a later one. It doesn't connect with me. ;)

Right at the end, console glowing red and bell sounding in the background.

Humour me here. Was the hotel that Wilf, Sylvia and Donna stayed in the same building that was the "Harrogate Hotel" in The Unicorn and the Wasp?

Don't think so, Harrogate Hotel looked older: http://doctorwho.time-and-space.co.uk/coppermine/displayimage.php?album=146&pos=1595

Unless they used the back door this time.

I thought it looked like Donna's reception venue...

Funny how technically it's a 'Doctor Lite' episode. And yet it's not.
It'd be quite cool if this is what the Doctor Lites were deliberately leading up to in a way.

RTD in 'excellent episode' shocker!

I've heard a rumour that Ms Piper had had some "work done" before shooting this ep which explains the way she was talking.

It was a t'riff' ep overall, I thought. Two really good RTDs in a row, Who'd a thunk it?

Two awesome episodes in a row. Both utterly different. But equally amazing. I'm stunned. And ever so insanely excited!
