Well! What a ride.......

Who knew that the Tenth Doctor was married to Elizabeth the First? Who knew that Lop-Eared Rabbits could be so dangerous? Who knew that we would see a surprise appearance by a FOURTH Doctor?

Utterly splendid, well worth the wait - the 50th Anniversary Episode was the jewel in the crown, and the fans thought so, too!

The use of the Tower of London is about as good as it gets, and it is always a delight to see Jemma Redgrave, a genuine fourth-generation acting wonder (although she did say that the location shooting in Trafalgar Square was the coldest and wettest she ever been on a set).

As usual with a Doctor Who 'finale' - and this felt like one - some things are resolved, some questions are raised. Amongst these is the question - will the Doctor make a return to Gallifrey? Will we see more of UNIT (the Tower of London sets looked remarkably like Torchwood).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
