...Ok, I was wrong. The Cybermen were pretty un-menacing even before "Doomsday." What about half the writers seem to miss is the real scary thing about them is the conversion process. In and of themselves, they're kinda laughable. The allergy to gold does nothing to help matters, of course.

Sure, this is the arc people site for DW's Jump the Shark moment. To them, I say 'pthbbt'. Is it great TV literature? No. Is it fun? Yep! I mean, come on. If nothing else, it's the serial where the Tardis gets painted pink. (Man, is she gonna need therapy for that!)

Ace is fabulous here, which comes as no surprise. One of the things I love about her is how easily she makes friends with the locals, wherever she and the Doctor go. Not just 'hi, how are you', but real friends. It's something the show doesn't do enough, in my opinion, but I love it when it does happen. (Rose's friendship with Gwyneth comes to mind.)

And the Doctor sings. When is that ever not a good thing?

Musings on the Doctor's college nickname. Some spoilers, though not for this serial )
