England’s performance yesterday was woeful; but having just now played an hour of football in similar heat, I feel for them. I may have to spend the rest of the day in a cold bath.

At least RTD bought his game to Doctor Who last night. When the Cybermen admitted they hadn’t built that sphere, I thought, oh no, they’re not going to go there again are they? And then they did, and fuck me, it was awesome.

  1. Amen.

    Nothing like raising the stakes at a cliffhanger moment, eh?

  2. I know. First Beckham goes off, then Rooney dismissed, and then they miss all the damn penalties.

    Oh, you meant Doctor Who...

  3. Well it is Britain's national pastime isn't it?

    Doctor Who I mean...

  4. When I saw in the opening credits that he'd written it, my heart just fucking sank... But then it blew me away. Good, solid, serious stuff, no stupid gags and inappropriate Carry-On shenanigans. I even liked Mickey. And I can't stand him usually.

    When the sphere started activating, I just started getting a weird feeling - then when they said it wasn't theirs, I actually got chills, wondering what the hell was inside- and it just blew me away. Top drawer. I'm so relieved. Torchwood were a bit rubbish though, weren't they, letting all their typists get infected, where's the security, tch, can't get the staff these days...
