When You're as Old As I Am ...

... the act of sleeping  - active sleeping, as it were, sleeping for the pure joy of sleeping -  takes on its own delights. Which is why this is going to be an extra specially short post. 

Well, except to say that I've seen Doctor Who tonight, and I can say with certainty that a) I'm liking Twelve (and Capaldi) more, and more; b) I really like Maisie Williams; c) I like parts of The Woman Who Lived; and d) dear lord, I was exasperated at various notable other parts.

Yup. This was, for me, the weakest episode of what has otherwise been, again, for me, the strongest season in the last couple of years.

Have a great sleep!

The Woman Who Lived won't be available for me until tomorrow but your summary is exactly what I've been expecting of it from its prequel so... I guess I won't be disappointed?

Gah - I'm responding late, and now feeling guilty; I should have put my comments under a spoiler alert. I'll say that it wasn't a bad episode in my eyes, just, for my taste, weaker than previous episodes. I'm reading reviews from people who believe very differently, and who think that the episode was really quite excellent. So you'll definitely have something to look forward to.

Don't feel guilty at all. I mostly enjoyed the episode and the banter (though like you there were bits where I was face!palming all the way). Going in without raised expectations meant that my ecpectatoons ended up being exceeded.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it!
