The Doctor and the beast

I’ve found this series of Doctor Who to be more variable in quality than the last. There’ve been truly excellent episodes, but also a couple that I’ll pretend never happened. However, I just watched the recent two-parter – The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit – and enjoyed it very much. The interesting dialogue and decent plot gave the always-excellent lead actors something to work with – I thought David Tennant’s performance in the climax was spot-on – and it was also bloody great when the Doctor came out as something of a humanist 🙂 Most entertaining, although the portents…well, I’m nervous already.
