Beginnings and Endings
Please Note: There will be spoilers in this blog entry if you haven't seen the UK press in the last week, or the reports out of San Diego Comic-Con.
The last week has been a fantastic time to be a Doctor Who fan - and the proof of how great this show is, could be seen in the thousands of screaming fans in San Diego yesterday morning, as the celebrated the coming end of an era - And what a ride that ending looks like its going to be. Frights on Mars with water and who knows what else, and then "The End of Time" itself, with Wilf, Donna, the Master, Timothy Dalton and the last days of Planet Earth!!!! It all looks very dark indeed! Whatever happened to Russell's promise not to scare the kids on Christmas Day??!!!!
And as we bid farewell to the amazing work that RTD, Julie Gardner, David Tennant and the rest of their fabulous team, back in Cardiff, the Matt Smith era has begun in earnest with the unveiling of the Doctor in his new togs, along with his new companion, Amy Pond, and as if that wasn't excitng enough we get a brand new (well, old really) TARDIS exterior, and the return of a character we hoped to see again, but didn't know if we would - River Song! How marvellous!
I love the new costume. Its a wonderful mix of an old and new - leading me to believe very strongly that Moffat will be re-introducing aspects of his beloved 5th Doctor era, especially the idea of an old man in a young man's body, which this costume completely befits. I can't wait to see it, and the whole new team, in action!
