Into the Dalek certainly has the Daleks killing lots of people again. And quite an idea, The Invisible Enemy meets Dalek. Interesting 12 is more casual about death, certainly darker. And another appearance from Missy. Neat subversions of expectations.

Deep Breath gave Talons of Weng-Chiang vibe. Like ref to Trigger's broom. 12 great, nice of 11 to call and usher in his replacement. And quite an ending scene. Who is the Gatekeeper?

Today is the 2000th anniversary of Emperor Augustus' death. Have released fanfic to celebrate.  Augustus was a man so great that I changed my political views from learning about him.

Worked out something amusing. In Jubilee the President of the evil British Empire is Nigel Rochester (voiced by Martin Jarvis). The Leader of UKIP is Nigel Farage. So Nigel seems like a great leader for Britain.

Listening to Jubilee again. May prefer it to Dalek with its more cynical look at humanity, even if it is a bit odd at points, with the twisted timelines and singing Daleks.
Deep Breath in a mere six days. Capaldi from what I heard is excellent in the role, as the Cyberleader would say. The main reason someone should be the Doctor is because they are a good actor, not to look attractive.
