Five-by Shooting

They (well… he) said it would never happen, but finally we get our first multi-doctor story of the new series in the form of the Children in Need special, Time Crash.

And what a lot of fun it was too. Davison stepped back into the role effortlessly, and he and Tennant obviously enjoyed firing off each other. The conundrum of how to explain away the age-old old-age question got sorted with a throwaway line, the half-moon glasses made a welcome comeback and continuity references abound (is the second mention of the Mara a subtle hint…?).

Quite what non-fans would have made of it I don’t know, but based on the audience figures, this potentially could be the biggest story of the new series. which means that mentions of Tegan, Nyssa and Time Lords with weird collars  obviously didn’t stop the general public from lapping up the first new story in 5 months.

But damn you Steven for making me get misty-eyed again (though not to the extent of the last 5 minutes of School Reunion thank god… don’t want to go through that experience again anytime soon).

And so now we wait for Miss Minogue and an iceberg. Fingers crossed.

    It’s Time Lords with funny “Hats” not collars, although recently rewatching Arc of Infinity I can see what he means…

    School Reunion didn’t do it to me…however, end of Doomsday, The Family of Blood and The Last of the Time Lords were a different story.
