This is a project I started working on a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t really want to share it with the world until I’d proved the concept to myself. Ten installments later, I think I’ve done that. From here on, I plan to crank out one of these a week. Unless it just turns out nobody’s reading it and/or the people who are reading it don’t think it’s funny. So let me know what you think …
Oy! That was quite a season finale, wunnit?
You just knew these last two Doctor Who episodes of the season — “The Stolen Earth” and “Journey’s End” — were going to be legendary as soon as the opening credits rolled. David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones), John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness), Elizabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith), and Billie Piper (Rose Tyler). At this point, you knew things couldn’t possibly be boring. But it didn’t even stop there. Because Captain Jack is joined by Torchwood members Gwen and Ianto, Sarah Jane by her adopted son Luke, and Rose by ex-boyfriend Mickey and mom Jackie. In short, it’s a free-for-all, with each team of Doctor-inspired heroes doing their part to save the universe. This finale was Russell Davies’ last big hurrah as head writer of the series, and as such, it ties up just about every loose end from the past four seasons, while at the same time bringing new life to an old foe.

Or maybe because it’s so good and clever and funny and well-written that I’m afraid I can’t do it justice, so I don’t even try. Regardless, this week, I have to post about it. Because the latest episode (here in the States anyway), “Turn Left,” was just SO good that I can’t stop thinking about it. Continue reading
