Doctor Who Season 6 (So Far)

When I moved recently, I left a Time-Warner Cable neighborhood and found myself in a Cablevision one. Unfortunately for me, Cablevision sucks even worse than Time-Warner in a variety of ways, the most important of which is that they don't carry BBC America. So imagine this lifelong Doctor Who fan's dismay when Season 6 started up this spring and I couldn't watch it! Alexa's a fan too, and she shared in my bummitude.

Luckily our good friend David Wellington recorded all the episodes so far on his DVR for us, and yesterday we had a marathon viewing at his apartment. Seven brand new (to me) episodes of Doctor Who, back to back, in one day! I was in heaven!

After the cut, my thoughts on the episodes. (No spoilers here, though they inevitably arise in the comments, so be warned.)
