And in regard to ‘Time Crash’…
I’ve never been a big fan of the Fifth Doctor — Seventh Doctor and Ace, Second Doctor and Jamie, they’re more my speed — but yes.
And Steven Moffatt rocks, even in short-form.
One other thing. I love the new series. I love the new fans it’s brought to the great series; most of the ones I’ve talked to have moved on to discover the original series for themselves. I am annoyed that they call it first, second, third season (sorry, it’s the 27th, 28th and 29th, and we’re heading into the 30th), but that’s Auntie Beeb’s fault.
Nothing annoys me like referring to the Doctors by only their ordinal number. ‘The Chase’ brought together the Fifth and Tenth Doctors, not “Ten and Five”. I miss Christopher Eccleston’s portrayal of the Ninth Doctor, not “Nine”. AAAAUGH!!! Just STOP IT! The Doctor is not a number, he is a free man… Gallifreyan… whatever!
