New Doctor Who pleases me. I really like that my nitpicks are now actually just nitpicks rather than omfg why are they doing this at all type issues. I am even willing to see where they are going to go with the Dalek 300ZX. It's a bit weird to have Amy winning the day so much but it hasn't pissed me off yet because Eleven's mistakes are all due to being Too Angsty so hopefully he will figure that out and Stop Being So Angsty. It also cracks me up that some fans are 'relived she hasn't got hots for Eleven' when it is in fact extremely clear she has got massive hots for Eleven. She's just not TELLING you like M.Jones did.
Dalek episode made me want to watch Power of the Daleks. Boo BBC Department Of Burning Cool Shit. We could have had video montages of Daleks pretending to be waitstaff.
Over in Big Finish Audio land, they just wrapped up Charley Pollard's Eight-then-Six-then-replaced-by-doppelga
They set it long after 1750 so there's none of the awkward 'wait is Jamie still supposed to be 20' like there was in The Two Doctors. Instead they've added intentional 'wait what IS going on though' awkwardness, which presumably the story will eventually let us in on.
I haven't really dug the Seventh or Fifth Doctor stories lately though. My most recent favorite for Seven is still The Death Collectors. Cause that was super awesome spooky. And I'm really looking forward to the next few Five stories, with Turlough and Tegan :D
And I need to catch up on the other Two-era stuff from Big Finish, there's a bunch of Companion Chronicles and apparently about to be some Lost Episode stuff and these should ROOOOCK. Including a production of the unproduced ep where Jamie dresses in drag to impersonate evil lady guards. WIN.
