Doomsday [Jul. 9th, 2006|11:18 am]
Tony Grist
A lot of Whovians hated Rose and her family. John Pertwee, they protest,  never got all huggy and kissy with his companions and their hangers-on. I take the line that the new show is a reinvention not a reproduction and personally I rather like having my emotions played like a zither.

I guessed the denouement. I knew there had to be some reason for introducing that parallel universe and by the end (or rather, just before the end) I'd worked out what it was.  I've liked the story arc in this season.
 
And even though I knew how it was going to pan out, I liked the way it was done.  It could have been slushy and unconvincing and groan-making and it wasn't. Russell T Davies is a damn good writer.

I'll miss Billie Piper. She's marvellous.

Who is this Rose of whom you speak?

I hated Rose and her family, too, but that was the Rose in "Keeping Up Appearances," and I especially hated her sister Hyacinth.

Which reminds me -- the TV show meme that's running through LJ is certainly short on Britcoms, isn't it?

Dr Who's latest companion.

I've glanced at that meme, but it's so Americocentric I lost interest.
