Plans are afoot to do something new with the blog.
I am particularly sad to see Bernard Cribbins’ place in the series go with Donna.
People have an amazing talent of blowing fears up to huge proportions just by talking themselves into believing it… Just like this group of tourists.
In my first post on this blog I looked back at what Doctor Who had meant for me as a kid. So what’s it mean to me now?
Ever since ‘Are you my mummy?’ became a national phrase meaning, ‘You are about to get brown trousers’ this genius, this extraordinary talent, has been giving us an annual dose of the most clever telly ever seen.
Isn’t the Doctor good? He just sets the screen on fire, doesn’t he? I mean even when everything on screen is literally on fire he still lights up the place like a magnesium flare.
Bernard Cribbins (I hope he’s a regular occurance!)
All in all this was bright, inventive, thoughtful tv with two leads at the top of their game, a splendid supporting cast, lovingly and fearlessly put together.
