Flying visits and Dr Who

I've just got back from Cambridge where I was visiting my parents briefly. This was a short visit as I've unfortunately got work to do this weekend. Damn you deadlines. :)

I've just watched the first episode of the new Dr Who (as I seem to be one of the few British people not to have downloaded the leaked copy from the Internet). Overall I was pleasantly surprised. It was well updated and quite different to the previous ones, but still true to the spirit of them. They also have had the sense not to mess with some crucial elements (the music, the TARDIS etc.). The episodic structure could prove a weekness, but it has sufficient pace to fit quite a lot in to 45 minutes. My fear that Billie Piper would ruin it seems to fortunately be unfounded so far.
