The Time Of Angels

That was pretty good.

Basically a retread of Silence in the Library

As if Moffat were dissatisfied with Silence in the Library and wanted to make it tighter and scarier.

He even reuses that creepy idea where a person can be dead but still talk to you.

I think the weeping Angels probably are the scariest Monsters ever.

I like the old married couple vibe between River and the Doctor.

Some great in-jokes- like the iconic panty-groany noise the Tardis makes when it lands being down to the Doctor forgetting to  disengage the brakes. We always suspected it, but now we know; it's not the machine that's at fault it's the driver.

Alex Kingston is a treat. She always is.

But if Moffatt is reworking old episodes this early, what are the implications for the show's future? Has he got anything new up his sleeve?

Taking Exercise

I need to be getting more exercise- which is one reason why I walked back from Sainsbury's the other day (after Ailz had dropped me there on her way to see her parents) and why today I walked all the way there and all the way back.

Another reason is we need to be spending less money- and I have this theory that if I go on foot- and can't carry much out-  even if I have to go several times a week, it'll reduce the impulse buys. Also, have you seen the price of petrol!

The full circle, including a meander through the supermarket aisles, takes about an hour.
