To me some of the best from the new Dr who series are , the empty child and don't blink they are dark , atmospheric, scary (kind of but you get my drift) new creatures, everything about them are exactly how Dr who should be, why can't we have more stories like these.

Saw Attack of the Cybermen again last night. Still love this story! Gritty and dark but with some wonderful characters and actors and cracking dialogue. It is - oh God I'm old - 30 years since I first saw this on an off-air recording. Loved it then, love it now.

Revelation and Attack. Plus one of my guilty pleasures, Vengeance on Varos. Both Brian Glover and Maurice Colbourne certainly made Attack special. I'll have to give those two a watch tonight. Actually, I might watch Attack whilst parody Who is on BBC1 this coming Sunday. When Doctor Who was worth watching.

I watched the first two episodes of The Mysterious Planet last night.

Whilst it's not the greatest slice of Doctor Who ever it's still far and away superior to anything in series 11.

Plus the way the Doctor and Peri interact is beautiful. We first see them in a long sequence, arm in arm, walking through a wood huddled under the same umbrella. Taken out of context if you saw them in the street you'd definitely think they were romantically involved. In fact the only time i've seen anything like it in Doctor Who would be Tennant and Rose.

Colin and Nicola had definite chemistry by this stage.

What's that song. Love is in the Air?

I just feel somewhat sorry for poor Colin and that blinking coat of many colors. Any enemy could see him coming 30 miles away, even in the mist.

It's not the worst get up i've seen a Doctor wear though. There's this imposter at the moment who looks like Andy Pandy.
