For balance: I'm knitting myself a hoodie, which is the first proper garment I've made in adult size (and only the third in any size - I'm yer woman for hats and mittens, though), and I've just finished the first sleeve. Spent half the morning just wearing the disembodied sleeve and laughing a disproportionate amount. But it's funny! It's like being a really comfy Borg.

As for Doctor Who , I really enjoyed it. I am trying to work out how little Amelia can have her own spinoff series, because she was beyond awesome. The wedding thing? Unnecessary, boring, repetetive, and can we have something important in a woman's terrestrial life that isn't about getting married? Please? Also, who didn't presume grown-up Amy was a stripper within the first 5 minutes? "Kissogram" my arse. Actually, please do. I know she's conventionally attractive, but I'm not immune to conventionally attractive. And I also thought Gillon did well.

I do hope there'll be something in the relationship of how the Doctor seriously ruined her life and screwed her up, rather than it just being all "it's okay, you came back." Pschiatrists are promising.

As for Smith: he's good. I liked him. I liked the leftover Ten-isms that he was eliminating/ replacing, I liked the energy and wackiness, and I wasn't even too distracted by the fact that he looks and behaves exactly like the Posh Green Golden Boy (whom I also like a lot, who is the nephew of a duke and whose family live in a castle). He even carried off the for-the-kids spitting out of the food with non-gross-out panache.

And I loved "I'm the Doctor. I'm worse that everybody's aunt." Also "You're Scottish. Fry something."

Okay, that's not deep. But I'm glad I can straighforwardly look forward to the rest of the series.

OMG, I hadn't noticed that resemblance before!

I loved that he didn't know what he looked like and that if the Tardis is on its side you have to climb out.

I liked it too! (and yes, Amy Pond is gorgeous). I am hoping that the rest of the season carries on like this (agree about the marriage thing too)

Oooooooh, *thirds* the irritating marriage thing. Been there, done that SO many times. FFS.

(Also, isn't it time for a male companion? Not that I'm complaining about having a gorgeous woman to admire, obviously.)

Not to mention a female doctor! I heard that someone on the internet was suggesting Tilda Swinton, which would be fabulous beyond belief.

D spotted the wedding thing before it actually happened, and I was doubtful just because they'd done a disrupted wedding with Donna. But no, they had to do it again. On the other hand, I got points for spotting the kissogram thing early on, namely as soon as the shortness of her skirt was revealed (and well before the seamed stockings).

Am I the only one who thinks that Smith looks like he should be wearing glasses? He looks like some men I've known who really suit glasses and look oddly wrong without them.

Wow, proper clothes knitting. *is impressed*

I failed to 'out' Amy: I merely thought that the bloody costume people had failed in anything like a convincing police uniform, and for-goodness-sake-how-short-is-that-skirt-no-policewoman-would-be-wearing-that. So I managed to be both right and wrong simultaneously, I guess.

I'm rather pissed off with the doctor for having left such a mess in the house. Even leaving for '5 minutes', he could at least've cleared up after himself. How RUDE. (OMG I have turned into A Stereotype Woman. Help!)

Just watched it and I really liked it. We had to see Part 2 of the final David Tennant one first and I was pretty much all set with him. Too much gurning and giving people Meaningful Looks. Glad that the new episode was actually funny for a change. And they have great chemistry. Predictibly I now have a massive silly crush on Matt Smith and I'll probably have to make out with S tonight because I'm all riled up.

I not-at-all-annoyingly told Steven right away that she was a stripper and that she would be getting married the next day, so predictable.

A really comfy Borg. I love it. :-)

Just watched it now, and really liked it too - although I rolled my eyes at the whole wedding thing, which I also suspected as soon as she said she had to be back the next morning. Though after Donna I actually assumed they wouldn't do that again, so that was disappointing. I also guessed she was a stripper immediately owing to the shortness of the skirt, and the stockings. And yeah, I hope they do go into the whole issue of long-term post-Doctor damage. I also liked that they seem to be making a concerted effort to move away from the last Doctor's "Humans are brilliant!" schtick.

Been meaning to ask after our chat on Andy's journal the other week, what was Kevin Lang like?
