      I figure they would start shooting after the first eps of the 3 season
      of Doctor Who airs in April or just before as do know they are in
      post-production on Doctor Who. I still want to know how did Jack get
      the Hand?,, what was he planing on doing with it ? When did Jack get
      into this time line? last we saw him he was on the Space station in
      the far future and had just come back from being dead as Rosy brought
      him back. Did here cross time by way of the rift?

      BTW did you note the big nasty and how it look something like the one
      in the pit Doctor encounter? I wounder if this was younger one of them?

      This will be fun to see how it unfolds over time and I hope for
      sometime to come.

        HEr main problem was that it was too scary and too violent for the
        target audience...which was about 7 as far as she was concerned....she
        had a particular problem with....oh hang on what was it
        called....sorry just got up and my brain really isn't
        functioning....the episode where the Tom Baker is in the MAtrix and
        being drowned at the end of an episode....she went absolutely
        ballistic at that claiming that children had to suffer for a whole
        thinking the person that they idolised was dead....

        Even seven year olds know how to play the game....I think she assumed
        that children weren't aware of what a cliff hanger was and couldn't
        comprehend that everything was eventually going to go in the Doctors
        favour....even in the 70's/80's kids were a damned sight more media
        savvy than most adults thought.....

        But she also made strange and bizarre claims about anti-christian
        content....because only jesus can die and be resurrected...claims of
        being in league with satan....unsurprisingly, The Daemons (hence my
        comment about wishing she could see Impossible Planet/Satan Pit).

        It wasn't just Who she criticised, but it was a favourite bugbear of
        hers.....she was often on programmes like BiteBaCk, Points of View and
        even 'Thats LIfe' airing her views, mostly because she pretty much
        always managed to make herself look ridiculous...she gave good telly
