Doctor Who: Waters of Mars was ( SPOILER! )
. For instance, yet again ( SPOILER! )
, but at least there was ( SPOILER! )
. I can't tell you how much I loved the whole of ( SPOILER! )
's performance. She was just awesome throughout, and her character was actually ( SPOILER! )
, which I NEVER thought I would see from a female character in a Rusty script.
I also loved ( SPOILER! )
, and Tennant's performance in this bit was ( SPOILER! )
. But, inevitably, ( SPOILER! )
showed his face, and that was ( SPOILER! )
although props to ( SPOILER! )
. It's feeling all Cartmel Masterplan to me, and (aside from ( SPOILER! )
), the main thing I am looking forward to about the Christmas special is that the Rusty/Tennant era will finally be over. I am sick of being beaten over the head with perfectly obvious plot points, and (I know I have said this before, but it needs saying again) it's coming to something when the kiddies' spin off of Doctor Who is written in a far more intelligent and interesting way than the main series
If there's one thing, just one thing, I am hoping for from the reign of The Grand Moff, it's that he realises that "more adult" does not mean "more sex, more gore and bigger explosions" but actually "more intelligent". I have my problems with the misogynistic son of a Zygon, but he does at least seem to have a brain. Let's hope he uses it.
Top Gear, on the other hand, was ( SPOILER! )
. The stagedness is getting more and more obvious, and it's less of a motoring show and more of an entertainment show with every series, but honestly, I don't care. Mat took the piss out of me for ( SPOILER! )
, though. Rotten git.
