Who, Who, Who, Who

A Surfeit of Awesome
     Oh my. It's the pipe, it's the spoon, it's the unbreakable addiction ....
Yes, I 'm sitting here, watching Doctor Who, that wonderful, wonderful 2005 series. Rose and The Unquiet Dead and (right now) Dalek. How wonderful to luxuriate in Rose and Nine. Oh, and I pointed out to BB, during Dalek,  the little security guard in Van Staten's bunker who became Ruthie Lem in "Walk Out With Me."  Told him that's the beauty of fanfic; I always thought the character who gave her life to allow Rose to escape - and who tried to talk sense to the Dalek before doing so - deserved better than she got, and I was able to use her as the template for one of my favorite WOWM characters. Who lived.
     (And I suppose the urge to watch was primed by running across The Ruby in the Smoke on PBS Masterpiece Mystery (or whatever they're calling it these days) - totally unexpected Billie Piper. Awesome!! God, I love that woman almost as much as I love Rose! And, for the extra point, I noticed that the pickpocket who stole Sallie Lockhart's book in the train was the actor who played Lance, Donna's skeevy fiance-turned-baby-spider-from-the-beginning-of-time-snack. There really are only 37 actors in Britain - all brilliant, and all destined, at some time or other, to appear on Doctor Who.)

I suppose I need to see The Bill, right? It's a police procedural of sorts?
