Huzzah, new Doctor Who! Oooh, that was good. It was so creepy, and Maureen Lipman (whom I kind of love) was brilliant, especially doing all her vintage BBC-speak - the "are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin" sent a shiver up my spine, and I was born in 1975. And I would have been absolutely and utterly terrified of the faceless people when I was a kid. Terrified! Also, the sitting room of the family's house looked EXACTLY like my grandmother's house - right down to the mirror above the fireplace in the front room (see, my working class ancestry is showing). I could almost feel those scratchy '50s couches and armchairs. And the wallpaper! It was wonderful.
And I absolutely adored the fact that the street where all the scary 1953 Coronation goings-on were taking place was called Florizel Street. Why? Because that was the original name of Coronation Street before it actually aired. A deliciously perfect in-joke.

Oh yes, it was good. I do so adore Maureen Lipman, especially when she's being creepy and evil like that.

Oh, damn! I knew Florizel Street was something, but couldn't remember what. You win at in-jokery.
