"Gee, Mr Hitler..."

You know how I keep pointing out that Moffat's idea of "How to Do Drama" is basically an Indiana Jones movie? All I'm saying is, this would be a lot neater if Michael Sheard were still around.

Hmmm. On the other hand... let's look at this scene again. A gormless-looking boy-man with a bow tie fixation, being thanked by Adolf Hitler for obvious "shock" value, even though he's clearly out of his depth in Nazi Germany and we're used to seeing a real extra-terrestrial champion deal with this type of situation. Why does that remind me of something?

Oh yeah.

Doctor Who, 2011: all the wit and subtlety you've come to expect from a sixty-year-old Superman comic. Next week, River Song becomes Lana Lang by temporarily gaining a disfiguring mutation and turning evil.

Weekend Geek Quiz #2

I'm not proud of this, y'know.

While we wait for the plot of Miracle Day to get a f***ing move on, you can use your skill, judgement, and borderline-autism to answer the following. Which of these ten noted individuals is the odd one out...

David Tennant; Jack Davenport; Sean Connery; Ben Kingsley; Christina Ricci; Steven Spielberg; Silas Carson (the voice of the Ood); Alfred Pennyworth; Doctor Octopus; and Winnie the Pooh?

Answer, ooh, sometime fairly soon I should expect.
