"I rewatched this one tonight, for the first time since it originally aired. Now that I'm more familiar with this Doctor and her companions, I think I was paying more attention to story and tone than I did the first time around.
And what struck…"
""Dispatches from Elsewhere"
Weird, but in a good way. A very good way. I'm only two episodes in, but completely hooked and surprisingly connected to these characters.
I love a show that's confident in just being its own weird…"
"My latest stab at a rewatch (begun the first workday of January) is coming along nicely. Today Maggie is in Wyndcliffe, Elizabeth is listening to The Widows, and Jason is not long for this world. In a couple of weeks I'll be watching episodes…"

I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way. Not only on threads here, but I frequent other sites regularly, and have yet to post a comment---because there's nothing I can add to the commentary.
