is it christmas yet?

Oh, I loved it. A perfect ending to a great series. I thought the Dalek Vs Cybermen war was an inspired move - I know some people thought it was overkill, but I loved it. The emergence of the Daleks at the end of last week's episode was the best reason for not reading spoilers since Giles's return in the Buffy Season 6 finale. And the whole thing was well wrapped up - the parallel worlds allowed the writers to create a convincing departure story for Rose that didn't involve her dying. Of course, I cried at the end (although I also cried quite a bit at the reunion of Jackie and Pete). Poor old Rose. I hope she gets to see the Doctor again. And poor old Doctor, stuck on the Tardis with Catherine Tate. Yikes. Looking forward to Christmas, though...

In non-TV news, Patsington and I met up with several Irish bloggers last night (as well as some of real-life pals), which was fun, and on the way home from the Nitelink we met a hedgehog! A very fast hedgehog, who scuttled along the path at an impressive speed when it saw us. We've seen lots of foxes but this is a first. The wildlife delights of suburbia...

It was great, wasn't it? I'd thought that the Daleks' appearance at the end of the previous one was a brilliant stroke - it took me completely unawares.

Lots of tears here, too, both for Rose and for Jackie and Pete.

Your mention of Giles's return reminds me of how I actually cheered out loud when he appeared in that episode. Hee!

I am right now rewatching last night's episode on BBC3, and I am crying a second time. I started at 'cos now he's got me' and pretty much didn't stop. Piper and Tennant were so very good -- particularly Tennant, torn between anger and sadness and relief and underlying pleasedness that she came back from Pete's World.

(Hurrah for hedgehogs!)

Speaking of wildlife, have you realized that it's the Panda Baby's first birthday?
