I'm going straight behind a spoiler cut today because OMG.

There is nothing I can say about this that isn't spoilery, so here we go!

For various reasons (mostly related to Space channel being useless), I've only had time to see this week's episode once, this morning, over breakfast. Usually I watch during broadcast and then rewatch in the morning sans adverts thanks to iTunes, but Space didn't air it until 4am last night, so GRRR.

(This is what you get for trying to use legit means to watch TV shows instead of 'acquiring' them.)

ANYWAY. That means this will be a brief bullet-point review rather than a full thing because if I don't do it now, I'll never do it and I'm TIRED today.

But non-spoilery reaction outside the cut was "yaaaaay" and also "OOOH CREEPY" :-)

Quick thoughts because I'm exhausted, but I needed to jot things down.

My cable station is playing silly buggers again - setting up new episodes as repeats on the program guide so my PVR doesn't record them - so I missed the first couple of minutes of this :-( Grrr. It didn't feel like I missed anything vital, which is a relief, but it's still frustrating.

Anyway. That's enough with being irritable. On to the episode squee!

I need to find a Clara and the Doctor icon. Just sayin'.

Due to a problem with my cable providers electronic guide last night, I didn't get to watch this live. Woe. So I watched it online over breakfast instead :-D This may need to be a new tradition - DW rewatch over Sunday breakfast. Heh.

Thusly, this is my brief immediate reaction spoiler-filled post written three minutes after the episode finished.

Entire non-spoiler thoughts: Squee!

Spoilery thoughts: Spoilers below the cut )

Um, yes, I've not been doing well with regular reviewing, have I? I blame the uncertainty of my computer, which now seems to be having more Mcafee issues (argh) and may also be having some problems with the connection to an external monitor. I'm typing this on the family computer because I couldn't face the thought of trying to bully my laptop into behaving today.

Anyway.

OMG, squeee!! That was approximately my reaction last night...

Note: those cookies that I linked to in Friday's post? Possibly the best recipe EVA. Totally nom. And wouldn't be the same without the cocoa nibs, just FYI.

Spoilers abound, but I'm putting them all behind cuts just in case. No, I didn't watch three episodes of Doctor Who and one of Holby over the weekend. I've just been a wee bit behind in my reviews and chatter.

Doctor Who: The Rebel Flesh and The Almost People )

Doctor Who: A Good Man Goes To War )

Having dwelt on the good science fiction, we now move onto the crack that is Holby City.

Spoilers for the most recent episode of Holby City )

Apparently Rosie Marcel, who plays Jac, has Becet's (was bed-bound with it for two years) and the female form of haemophilia. Plus she was treated for stage 2/3 cervical cancer a couple of years ago without taking any time off filming Holby. Jac is one of my favourite characters already, a worth successor to Connie, but this makes me respect her actress a great deal as well.

I also learned recently that Amy Brenneman has ulcerative colitis. She was written a 'break' in Private Practise so that she could have a colectomy and be fitted with an ostomy bag. It's giving me a bit of hope for what might happen if I need to do the same - you really cannot tell that she's wearing a bag and she's skinnier than I am.

Why do we feel so much more respect for people once we know they've had to battle some kind of major health thing to get where they are? Hmm.
