Wow. Oh wow.

I remembered it being good, but I didn't remember how good. So much there. Fabulous characters, loads of fantastic lines, lots of tension and suspense - especially the continuing question of how were the seers seeing the future so clearly, and I loved the explanation that they weren't seeing the volcano erupting because in that timeline it wasn't going to - and an absolutely brilliant expansion on the Doctor/Donna relationship. I adore the dynamic between them here: Donna continuously questioning everything the Doctor usually just does automatically, and being exactly what he needs. That's brilliant.

And the moment where he has to make the choice to kill 20,000 people to save the Earth, and all the echoes that must have of having to destroy Gallifrey to save the universe... And the fact that this time he has Donna there to make the choice with him, put her hand over his on the lever, that this time he's not alone... That's just. Wow. Made me shiver.

Voyage of the Damned: Not a lot to say, really, except that I enjoyed this a hell of a lot more than I remembered enjoying it the first time. Possibly because the first time I'd been waiting months since the end of the last series, so there was a lot more weighing on it, whereas this time it was just something to get out of the way so I could see Donna. *g* But it wasn't bad. It was quite good fun, and there were some great characters, though it was a shame so many of them were killed along the way.

Partners in Crime: I really, really enjoyed this. There's not really a hell of a lot to it, but it works very well as a re-introduction of Donna and her family, and I am completely in love with her grandad, bless him. I loved the cleverness of the Doctor and Donna missing each other so very closely whilst investigating. I enjoyed Sarah Lancashire's performance. The journalist who kept getting tied up was fun. The Adipose were unbelievably cute, for little balls of fat. And Donna just seems to bring out a great performance from DT. And I loved the Doctor's attempt to save the nanny at the end. That's just so him.

(My original, one-line, review of Partners in Crime is here - and heh, that was 6 April last year - very nearly a year ago!)

NB Still need a Donna icon. Must go icon-hunting soon!

Note: as usual, I didn't watch the trailer for next week, so please don't spoil me.

Very brief, non-spoilery reaction:

That. Was. Fantastic.

Huge amounts of fun, harrowingly sad, the Doctor was cool, Donna was great, and I loved it. :-)

It was fun. Andy and I both really enjoyed it. Andy will hopefully actually be watching the rest of the series with me, which will be nice. :-)
