I saw the DARK WATERS episode od Dr Who for lunch today (taped the broadcast after RAGE last night). I must say that I enjoyed it thoroughly, but that I think certain things might be apparent only in next weeks concluding episode.
I just love the hysteria over this in certain quarters - the like of which I haven't seen since the impending release of MATRIX: REVOLUTIONS. Stay tuned!
Apart from lunch, it's been productive today, partly because of the cool weather. Much better than the horrible humid mess of the last two days!
Tomorrow is housework/shopping/pickup Mystry day.
It was enjoyable, tied up some loose ends, and was an OK bookend to the 11th. Shall be interested in seeing where they take the next season. There's no way I'm going to tell you anything about the plot - SPOILERS!
However, am annoyed at the ABC for compressing the credits to the bottom half of the screen with an image and voice-over advert for NEW YEARS. - booooo (iView will have no such annoyance)!
glad I waited
glad I avoided spoilers
glad i saw it in a cinema full with FANS
Been watching Dr Who for 50 years, and this was a good anniversary special. There are a couple of short segments that you won't see if you only watch it on the TV. Won't say what they were, but they were VERY EFFECTIVE in the session I attended.
Get ready for the Doctor to kick off his adventures in the 50th anniversary year of the series with his new companion Clara – an impossible girl he’s already lost twice. Together they find themselves battling monsters on distant alien planets, trapped in a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger and so much more. The epic new series is coming, so get your TARDIS ready.
Um - FINAL Episode?!
Considering the content, it could plausibly be so. I suspect though what he meant was "...for now". At least I hope so!
I prefer to wait until it airs locally. Downloading pirate or other versions of the episodes just seems like cheating myself of some fun, though trailers that are being shown by the ABC mean that it's imminent! Of course here the ABC have been repeating DR WHO seasons (new series) 1-6 one episode a weekday (and this is the 2nd repeat). Yesterday was "A Christmas Carol" so by my reckoning there's 14 more episodes to go before they might show the new season (13 for season 6 + the Xmas special)
As from The Guardian:
The actor Caroline John, who has died aged 71, was best known for defending Earth from alien invasion alongside Jon Pertwee's Doctor in the first colour series of Doctor Who, broadcast in 1970. As Dr Elizabeth Shaw, she provided brains, cool-headed intelligence and maturity where once the Doctor's female companions had screamed and asked questions.

Not that widely remembered as as Liz Sladen or Katy Manning as a Doctor's companion, but I always liked her character.
The following was in my daily email from TVFix (a local TV website where you can track favourite shows et cetera):
Well yes, that is the episode to be shown tonight. Only aren't those cast members from CSI, or judges from X-Factor? Maybe there's been some drastic casting changes since the mid season break!
