  • Yes, but this time we'll have SEXY Shakespeare!!

    Two episodes in and let the Freema love continue, I say. Yes, the doctor was a little dismissive of her - he's still missing Rose but she'll be ok - I think our girl can hold her own. And OK, for the purists - Elizabethan English was quite different from Modern English. That's a given. As with other shows/movies, we're asked to suspend believe and not get that picky. (As a fall-back, doesn't the TARDIS handle that mess.)

    The witches and magic plot is a little close to the line. Let's not stretch "canon" too far, shall we. The Martha character is having a ball, flirting with ol' Will and despite the witchery, smells and spilled "fluids". Given the preview of next week's episode, will she continue to enjoy the ride?

    I'm hoping so.
