Nerd Fight!

I've been rather open about how I think this season of Doctor Who, on the balance, has been crap (this, as a note, is the season running currently in England, not in the states on Sci-Fi). There were some fantastic episodes, like the "Girl in the Fireplace" (one of the best ever), there were some mediocre ones, and there were a few bombs.

The biggest flaw has been the Doctor/Companion relationship- the whole fanficcy/slash dynamic is annoying as all hell. So, knowing that the last two episodes are a two-parter, and knowing that Rose is going to die at the end of this season (which they make a big deal out of in the intro this time), I have some optimism for the future.

I'm very much looking forward to next week.
