pre-emptive squee-harshing, again

The trailer looked fantastic, but lowering my expectations in advance seems to be working well for me this season. It worked for 42 and before Utopia I accidentally came across Rosefen squeeing like mad over unspecified spoilers, and thought "Oh no it's going to be unbearable", and it was fab and had an NA reference within the first 30 seconds. Hence I'm going to assume from now on that tomorrow's episode is going to do That Terrible Thing We Hope RTD Isn't Going To Do. Because if I'm not mentally prepared for it I might have to break things if it does come true.

Apropos of nothing, I've just done a strange drugs education exercise where we had to decide which of seven candidates should get a place in rehab based on limited information. One of them was called Romana, which made me alternate between wanting to give it to her automatically, thinking that she shouldn't get it because she could always regenerate if the damage got too bad, and assuming that it simply must be Romana III. Are there really RL people called Romana or was the person who wrote the exercise a fan?

  • Another thing about EoT ...

    Pinning down the Doctor's age at 906 in that conversation with Wilf annoyed me. OK, so he lies all the time and this whole 900 thing is nonsense…

  • End of Time pt 2: immediate reaction

    I am bloody unhappy about the companions in this, even though no one died: The Martha/Mickey spoiler was true, then. BAH. That makes me…

  • End of Time spec

    Does anyone else think we're going to get a trial of the Doctor by the Timeys? It's one of the major old school tropes the new series hasn't been…
