New Who  
Ooh, that was rather excellent, wasn't it? Martha asked all the same questions as me, almost as I was thinking them. Good for her.

I quite liked the Judoon too, a little too 'It's more than my job's worth', but then I work with several perfectly nice examples of that breed, and if they were also given alien ray guns, I can't guarantee they wouldn't do the same :) At least they returned the hospital to earth. Also, it was hard to be scared of aliens who wore New Rocks - unless they were also likely to turn up to my local Goth night, all stompy, and rhinoceros-like, which would probably cave the floor in, and that would be frightening indeed...

I was a little eye-rolly about the LARGE REPEATING MAGNETIC OVERLOAD signs, because, hello, yes - we had got the point, but really, that's a small nit-pick. I might also quibble about the suddenly replaced sonic screwdriver, but the Doctor could have disappeared for months on a ginormous, lasted ages, terribly-dangerous quest, and we'd never know - so I'm just going to let him off :)

So Who, in summary - off to a rather fab start.

For just a second when I saw the new sonic screwdriver, I thought - where does that come from? But then I quickly realised, he can go anywhere/anytime to get a new one! He probably goes right to the factory on a day when they're having a sale or something!! :)

Absolutely - I read on a Who related journal somewhere that someone was complaining that the factory had been blown up, so how did he get a new sonic screwdriver? I did rather think that the poster had missed the point! :)

Well to be fair I did that too but in my head I think I had sort of assumed he'd meant "destroyed" as in the way he destroyed the Daleks and the Timelords so you can't go back but then I realised there was no reason for that assumption so I stopped being silly ;-)

Ooh, did you think that too? I thought I'd read that somewhere on who_daily - but the way Rusty runs through references, he might mean that and then change it later anyway, so you never know :) Although, if you think about it - it might be an extremely good idea, given how *very* powerful the sonic screwdriver is!

Really enjoyed that, thought it was a good opening episode and liked Martha's character. I liked the psonic screwdriver returning, he wouldn't be the Doctor without it! The Judoon were fun and single minded! Looking forward to next weeks episode.

That's ok! This episode was very hope making for the new series - although I do see them starting an unrequited love thing going between the Dr and Martha, which I feel will get old very quickly...

Got your text too. Glad things are sorted! Yay!
