The End of the World.

TV Goodness, who saw that coming? Although cleverly not mentioned by name, poof goes Gallifrey, The Doctor's home planet. And the rest of The Timelords. Fans everywhere wonder if the series is going to suddenly become a continuation of the books (where it also apparently happened) in what's probably the most comitted and gripping plot point in telefantasy since Buffy died. As the for the rest of tonight's Doctor Who, wasn't it just excellent? Exciting, scary, emotional. Eccles demonstrated what a loss he'll be and Billie continued her one girl battle to prove that you shouldn't assume anything about anyone. Yes it was very Hitchhikers but in a good way. And one of the issues I had with the first episode has already been fixed -- the music here was fine. Including the pop. Who the hell expected Soft Cell and Britney Spears? Very zeitguesty. It also, unlike last week, featured scenes which went on for longer than a few seconds and allowed the characters to breath. It's just a shame The Moxx of Balhoon bought it. I liked that little blue alien. I can smell chips...
