She's a bad girl now...

April 15th, 2006 (09:14 pm)

...so said my goddaughter, aged three, during 'New Earth' as she took in Rose's odd behaviour.

'New Earth' was a lighthearted beast, with generic disease make-up (though it scared one six-year-old cousin, who had to leave the room), bad but redeemable cats (it was a pleasing touch that the villains were taken into custody by the police - NNYPD Blue for the next spin-off?) - and a plotline which cheerfully dug itself loads of holes into which the production could sink, only to find that the script and its execution danced joyously around them and over them. Overall it was a strong story of redemption, allowing the tenth Doctor to show that he has a more sensitive emotional register than the ninth, and elevating Cassandra from cruel joke to a psychologically vulnerable and heavily scarred anti-heroine.

Oh, and the party went well. I am sitting here typing in yellow, green and black face paint, which must say something.

I hope you're going to show us a picture of you in your face paint :)

You will, but I'm not certain that I have all the connections for camera and computer up here. Perhaps after I return on Monday.
