Not Half Bard!

Last night's Doctor Who was excellent. Set in 1599 and involving Shakespeare it was exceptionally well written and despite the topic absolutely triumphed in not being corny.

It's funny I am a big fan of drama that spoofs or tributes to Shakespeare, with my favourites both coming from the pen of Tom Stoppard - Shakespeare in Love and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.

I hope the writing of this season of Doctor Who continues to be this good.

Not watched it yet, but did see the first episode with the new girl - quite nice looking she was too - and I really enjoyed it even if the hospital did end up on the moon which is entirely unbelievable. This is of course assuming you believe that Dr Who and the Tardis could exist in the first place!!....f

Well that was misbehaving! Fixed now, but not certain why that was enabled.
