Doctor Who

I must admit, Series 5 left me kind of cold: while I love Pond, 11 was too much of a goofball for me.

But *man* -- Series 6 starts with a bang. I think I'm already more hooked on this season than any of the previous ones. And I do appreciate the implicit confirmation in the credits that Doctor Who is really about the companion, which I've maintained since Series 1. Not to mention that Dr. Song is getting more interesting every time she shows up.

Kudos to Moffat: this is one of the most unsparing looks at time-travel I've ever seen, finally getting into the subtle personal horrors of the concept. My biggest problem with last season was that it too often didn't make *sense*; this time it does, and the results are really quite nasty...
