Well I've always enjoyed this story and this watching just reinforced that. Yeah, there are problems but I've always tended to overlook them. Part one, as almost all Colin stories aspire to, is inspiring and very, very good. THIS is the way to introduce a new villain and THIS is the way to treat the Rani. Every other appearance by her tends to reduce her to the I want to rule the world villainess one dimensional charcter. Here, she's very much a 3d character IMO. She doesn't want to rule the world, or change time or do anything that fools like Ming the Merciless and the Master and Dr Evil want to do: she has reasons and good ones. She is amoral but not totally evil and not for evil's sake. I still hate her for what she does to Luke and the others but not as much as I hate the Master for killing the dog and the dog's owner. I hate when they have animals die in media but whatever...

NASA has revealed their newest next generation spacesuit design, the Z-2. I thought it looked a little familar though, almost as if I had seen something similar to it before.
Emma Campbell-Jones made quite an impression on the Eighth Doctor and on Doctor Who fans as "Cass", the companion who almost was, in "Night of the Doctor".
This wasn't Emma's first encounter with the Doctor. She worked with Matt Smith and company in "The Wedding of River Song" as Dr. Kent. This beautiful and talented actress has made appearances on Red Dwarf, Silent Witness, and recently Law and Order: UK.
Emma Campbell-Jones is a star on the rise and now we'll get a chance to see why the Doctor was quite smitten with her!

Ohila: 'And here he is at last. The man to end it all. My sisters, the Doctor has returned to Karn. We have always known in our bones that one day he would return here. Such a pity he's dead.' -From 'The Night Of The Doctor'
Ohila, from the Sisterhood of Karn, is referring to the 8th Doctor who was temporarily restored to life by the Sisterhood. Less than 3 minutes later, when he drinks an elixir (given to him by Ohila) he is changed into a 'warrior'. Onset of this change is marked by regeneration energy which begins to flow from the Doctor's body. While his outward appearance is altered we do not witness a full regeneration. Why? Because only the living regenerate... what we witnessed was rebirth from death, not regeneration of life.
