      I've watched. Once. Enjoyed it muchly, and I'm looking forward to the chance to see it again.

      I think that might have been my favourite moment, right there in the beginning. I love scenes that
      show us how powerful the TARDIS actually is. Repairing itself so deftly. I also liked the way it
      fell to earth and just patiently waited for the Doctor. How did he know where to find it? Part of
      that telepathic field?

      I was reminded (in concept) of "The End of the World", where we have rich fold and support staff
      and the Doctor using his psychic paper to appear a legitimate guest.

      It was London, wasn't it?

      I liked her too, but I don't know if there's enough substance there to keep her on - she didn't
      seem to have much of a background, or a life. Compare her to Rose, who had such a full and
      interesting life shown to us within the first few minutes of "Rose". Now this isn't to say that
      Astrid couldn't be given an equally interesting or different context - but it does seem that we
      will have quite enough Companions in the TARDIS next season anyway.

      In her last few second, when she became light, Astrid reminded me of Tinkerbell.

      I loved that. Aww. I just wish he'd kiss Captain Jack Harkness like that - but not if it's a
      final death scene, thanks all the same.

      I wonder what that means - did Donna find someone else to marry?

      I just hope it doesn't become too much of a comedy. I prefer the more serious side of Doctor Who.
