Okay a 3/5 or a 6/10 I'd say. I haven't returned to this since it first was viewed. The only thing I returned to time and again before season 4 started was the previews at the end. Still, having just watched it again, I must say the actors are all very good in it, the effects varied and well done, the music FANTASTIC, and the set pieces excellent. The characters are likable and the dialog logical and touching.

Peter Davison's dropped out of Gallifrey One: Blackjack 21!

I'm sure everybody else here already knows this, but I finally got the word that Peter Davison has thrown us over for LEGALLY BLONDE.


My son and I were going to L.A. largely because my son's favorite doctor was going to be there...


I've seen BLINK about 6 times and I've seen the last half of it over 10 times. It's been acknowledged by horror and dvd magazines as one of the best horror/supernatural things of all time and it's number two in the DWM poll, all well deserved and I give it a 5/5 or a 9/10 or even a 10/10. Okay though let's look at something first: Gary Sparrow in ANOTHER SHOW way before this one, leaves a note under wall paper because he was stuck in the past! That in turn was stolen by a DW Annual Story with the 9th Doctor and a younger girl named Sally Sparrow. That in turn was transformed into this. Okay that's the bad.


This gets a 3/5 or maybe a 4/5 (but no, it's too sad an ending) and mostly for the Master as played by Derek Jacobi and not John Simm. The setting, the location stuff, and the interplay is also pretty good, but frankly most of it is taken from the NEW ADVENTURES novel AND ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU/that Moreau SLIDERS "homage" and even I CLAUDIUS (the sound of drums in his head came directly from Derek's character there!).

The opening is retarded with Jack running in public screaming, "GrinOC--TOURRRR!" and then clinging to the TARDIS in the vortex. OMG that was so friggin stupid.


okay tempted to give it a 3/5 but really no, it remains, sadly, a 0/5 or a 0/10. Let's look at why shall we?

Let's get this straight: a year has gone by and the Toclafane aren't everywhere, the Master isn't watching everyone everywhere? And he can't see Martha at all? Then there's that music and the dancing of the Master. BATMAN!!!! The Toclafane leave Tom alone and don't kill him or search him or report him and of course don't see Martha due to the perception filter. Martha tells Tom she hasn't seen the Doctor or that there was someone else in her life a "long time ago"---a year is a long time? I guess it can be due to what she went through. A novel that I dare not read has short stories about that year. Gosh!
