The Wedding Of River Song

Pterodactyls, pyramids, Churchill, Dickens, a cave full of living skulls: that was just the most outrageous fun!   I sometimes forget, in my nitpicking over matters of detail,  just how much I enjoy the show.

The BBC is cancelling Dr Who Confidential. I'll miss it. Last night's final episode performed a public service by giving us River Song's time-line the right way round.  We also got a miniature episode scripted by school children, featuring Nickolas Grace as Einstein. It was lovely. 

The "death of the doctor" promises to be a significant turning point- clearing the way for smaller, less overblown story lines. Also, next season, we're promised the "fall of Eleven"- which implies a regeneration-  plus a consideration of the primal question of the universe... 

Blazing October

Yesterday lived up to its promise to be the hottest October day ever. We spent much of it in the back yard, talking over the wall to Sam and the kids. Zayam has a new song which he was singing to his sister. It goes,

Der, der, der, der, gonna kill you, gonna kill you
Der, der, der, der, gonna kill you, gonna kill you.
