The Doctor Is In

Doctor Who's 4th (or is it 30th) season debuted tonight in Britain. I'm very happy the show is back, as I've been a huge fan since way back in high school. I was kind of let down by this year's Christmas special (or would that be last year's? Well, the 2007 Christmas special), so, in my opinion, the show had nowhere to go but up. And while I hate to say I didn't love PARTNERS IN CRIME, I'm happy to say I didn't hate it, either. It was definitely better than VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED, but still had lots of room for improvement. I think what bothered me the most is the plot was too campy. "The Fat Just Walks Away." Really? But that being said, it was so nice to have Donna back. She's going to be a handful this season. And although I thought I was fully versed in spoilers for this season, they managed to sneak in a sucker punch just before the end of the episode. LOVED IT! Overall, I think I would rate this episode a 3 out of 5. I have high hopes for the season. I hope they're met.

Must borrow the Bodacious Brit's laptop tomorrow and watch this episode, oh yes.
