  • ...if you know what I mean by "special".

    I had great expectations for the Shakespeare episode and perhaps that's why I didn't like it too much.

    It had the potential to have the best dialogues in series 3 - and I hope it doesn't. Nothing surprising, nothing "brilliant". The witches and the monsters were just tacky.
    There sure was some idea behind the whole plot, but it seems like they lost it along the way, inbetween all the voodoo dolls and steaming kettles.

    I wonder if every episode now is going to have a moment about the Doctor having two hearts, come on, we already know that and, yes, obviously, so does "dr" Martha.

    Still, it's my favourite show. It's cool to see how Martha's already developed some expectations (rather than feelings) towards the Doctor - and how he's dissapointing her totally unaware of that. Exactly in his few-hundred-y-o-child style.
