Hi. So, I knitted. And I watched Doctor Who. And The Guild, even. So technically, by the rules I’ve set for myself, I’m supposed to blog about it. So here you go. But I’m really really tired and out of it tonight. Apologies if it’s a bit stream-of-consciousness. Also, beware SPOILERS. I think.
I hadn’t watched The Hungry Earth or Cold Blood since they first aired. I didn’t have any strong feelings about them at the time, I just enjoyed them for being Doctor Who. I still do. Yay! They really have a classic-Who kinda feel (and not just ’cause the Homo-Reptillians are Silurian cousins), and that’s just peachy by me! Also, I loved loved LOVED Meera Syal as Nasreen Chaudhry. (And is that not an awesome character name?) Easily one of my favorite guest stars in all of new-Who.
I’d forgotten about the bit at the end with the crack and Rory getting shot. Holy balls, I didn’t see that coming the first time I saw this. It affected me more this time, I think, having seen how Amy and Rory’s relationship evolves over the rest of the season and much of the next. Yes. I got a bit misty. So sue me.
Oh. And Matt Smith is amazing.
The Guild was pretty awesome tonight as well. Felicia Day has done it again. I won’t spoil that for anyone, but there’s one scene with a cavalcade of fantastic guest cameos. I think this season is my favorite so far. I started re-watching season one at Dragon*Con, and it’s clear that the show has come a long way. It was pretty solid to start with, but now it’s a lot more polished. (Not to mention the fact that it’s progressed to the point that [INFORMATION REDACTED] and [NAME REMOVED] and [XXXXXXXXXX] and the like drop by for an episode.)
As for the knitting, I got an orange stripe done. Boom. After last night’s end-weaving debacle, I wasn’t about to try that again so soon. One of these days I’ll get back on that horse. Today is not that day. Tonight I’m ignoring the horse entirely so I can just go to bed. Mmm. Bed.
