Blink and you'll have Nightmares!

Clearly too much Dr Who for me yesterday! Not so much nightmares as very weird dreams about being chased!
The scarecrows and the weeping angels are absolutley brilliant as far as malevolant baddies go in my book! It is a shame that the scarecrows were poorly used in the Family of Blood episode.
My hat goes off to Stephen Moffitt though. He clearly is in his element writing for Dr Who.

The three-parter (of which we are 2/3 of the way through) started really well, with Jack back and the strange world at the end of time. I loved DJ as Prof Yana and was only slightly disappointed that he chose to regen! As previously stated John Simms was brilliant. I love a good Ham and Cheese role! (Pun intended!)

What worries me is that the plotline for this trilogy is a bit too abstract and I haven't got a clue as to what is going on and where Martha is going! Some hints would have been nice! So far it isn't as good as the Age of Steel or Ghosts two-parters from Series Two.

Don't think I saw Age of Steel or Ghosts last season. Only this season I've watched without missing a thing.

I dont think it is abstract, I'm really liking it and the cliffhanger-esque endings each week. My only disappointment is that it's the season finale next week and as the writing has been going it'll end with me shouting "NOOoooO!!" at the TV!!

You reaaly need to get the DVDs or AVIs for Seasons 1 and 2. You are missing out both on some long-on-going plot lines and some really classic episodes. Chris E is a different DW, but is still worth watching - there are some really bad episodes / monster choices though!
