Ok, so I'll just do reactions to the Sontaran Strategem and The Poison Sky together. Overall, I enjoyed them, but then again, I tend to not nitpick Doctor Who because I prefer to sit back and enjoy the pretty and the fun. If I start to nitpick too much, it'll only end in tears, I'm sure.

Reactions while watching:

- I hope this isn't going to be another Daleks in Manhattan.

-Ok, pretty purple castle. How... nice.

- Hey, Atmos! That's that word that's been showing up a tiny bit.

- Ok, this is worrisome: Evil cars are lolarious, NOT scary. Sorry to say.

- AWW, he's teaching Donna to fly the TARDIS? Has he done that with any companions before?

- OMG IT R MARTHA I LUFF HER!

- But is this dramatic stare-y bit necessary? He's known her for a long while now.

- I am reminded of some random Master/Doctor fic I read one time. *hopes everything is the same because OMG MASTER = WIN* Also, it's possible. *nods knowingly*

- YAY UNIT! OMG MAYBE WE'LL SEE THE BRIG! :D

- I am gay for Donna Noble. That is all.

- Hah, it's like Archangel all over again. Everyone's got it. And now you will die.

- What on Earth has possessed Rusty to make UNIT look bad? Does he HATE old canon, is that it? Grr.

- OH FUCK THAT WAS SCARY. FUCK. Eugh, I hate creepy slimy almost-but-not-quite people things. Eugh.

- Ok, what idiot trained soldier would drop his guard around an armoured, armed person, even if it is a bit short? Jesus, that's just bad fucking writing.

- Ok, I'm loving Ross (or is it Russ? I'll go with Ross). He is awesome. We like him!

- OK THAT'S ALL RIGHT THEN. After a lengthly sweet speech about how he's gonna miss her, and all, he stops and says: "You're just popping home for a visit, that's what you mean." LULZ. Ok, it cheapened his nice speech, but it was funny, and she's done that before, on the Ood planet when he was making his alien world speech. It seems to be tradition.

- Bit early in the season for flashbacks, methinks.

- NOEZ MARTHA!

- I call Godwin's Law, there.

- Also, kid's accent sucks. Sorry, but no.

- Heh, Doctor corrects the genius kid's grammar FTW.

- Did I just hear a tiny bit of The Master Vainglorious? Or maybe the themes of evil are all somewhat similar.

- LOLWHUT. Led  the Time War. Seriously. I simply do not see the Doctor as the general-leader type. Swooping in at the last minute and destroying everything I can see, and I can see him being ordered to destroy everything and doing it, but I can't see him a) giving the order b) ordering anyone else.
He's a fucking renegade Time Lord, and just because he's BFFs with President Romana does not make him able to lead a battle.
Of course, this is me without any first hand classic who knowledge, so please, take all of my opinions with a spoonful of salt, I'm perfectly able to admit how wrong I am.

- I love that Earth is the Doctor's home away from home. England especially.

- Hmmm. I think it's a mistake to make those round ship things look like Toclafane. Visual parallels only work when, you know, there's a parallel.

- Too many they-think-it'll-be-more-dramatic-than-it-actually-is jokes.

- So, can we assume that purple is the colour of evil in this show? Purple lighting in the Gamestation (I think), pale purple glow in Canary Wharf, purple lighting on the Valiant, and now the purple castle and purple Sontaran ship. Probably more examples too.

- Yay. Say what you like about Davies, one thing I love about him is the little throwaway lines and things that preclude heteronormativity. I heart his gay agenda.

- Yo, break the damn window ok?

- Yay, hands through his hair!

And now, on to Poison Sky:

- Finally someone smashes the damn glass. Go Donna's mum! I hate her much less now.

- EvilMartha is hot.

- News montage. I love how they use all the same actors for the reporters of different countries, so you can recognize them. Continuity turns me on, ok?

- Ok, that kid is getting really freaking annoying. Eugh.

- Hah, he already suspects Martha of being evil. Probably because he already knows about Sontaran cloning technology, and hey, he's NOT an idiot.

- HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT WAS ROSE FOR A SECOND, YELLING FOR THE DOCTOR ON THE SCREEN HOLY FUCK OMG ROSE OMG OMG OMG SHE'S IN TROUBLE DOCTOR SAVE HER OMG.
(Sorry)

- Ok, the Doctor is made of win and awesome and cake. "Oh THAT'S diplomacy." I like that guy.

- OMG he CHANGED THE CHANNEL! I love that! He's so awesome. There is not enough win in the world for him.

- I wish he'd be awesome more in this episode, instead of just yelling a lot. I don't mind the yelling, but there's so much of it.

- Wow. That is some bad acting right there, kid. Sorry to say, but you are not making me feel sorry for you right now.

- Oh COME ON! I liked that guy, he was plucky and didn't take shit from the Doctor. Why does he have to automatically be a douchebag? I feel a bit led on, and I don't like it. SUBTLETY, MK?

- OMG IT'S THE DOCTOR'S BOYFRIEND! PLZ DUN DIE!!1!

- GODDAMN IT.

- Yay, at least there's a mention of the Brigadier. I want to see some of his episodes, find out why he's so awesome.

- I FUCKING LOVE FRUSTRATED ANNOYED DOCTOR.
  "For the billionth time, you can't fight Sontarans!"
Clearly I have a weakness for David Tennant doing, well... anything at all, really. But I just love how exasperated he's getting.

- Awww, poor Donna. And poor Doctor, he probably feels awful getting her to risk her life. Awww.

- That made me so damn happy. Doctor's wearing a gas mask so he can go outside, and is feeling like being obstinate because he's pissed off at UNIT. Dude is all, new model, think they'll be ok? RE: guns, Doctor replies, "are you my mummy?" I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. Also, more sexy continuity.

- Wow, and the Valiant's back even. This is like, the episode of awesome stuff appearing from other episodes. Although it's making me long for a return of the Master that'll probably be years away. *is sad*

- Jack mention too.

- Doctor lying like that in the transporter is hot. Just so you know.

- I'd care that she was dying a lot more if I'd gotten a sense of EvilMartha as a person. Heh.

- Nice engagement ring there.

- Aww and she's wearing the Doctor's coat! LUFF.

- I like the theory that the Doctor really, REALLY fucking hates guns now because the Master was shot.

- Aaaand, kamikaze Doctor. Hey, he's saying goodbye before leaving to kill himself this time. That totally shows progress.

- I don't know whether I buy the idea that the Doctor would kill himself just to give the Sontarans a choice when he knows perfectly well that they're not going to take his offer. But... while it may not work character-wise, it works thematically, so there's that. I don't really know whether I like it or not. But it's something.

- The Doctor should totally take Wilf on a ride!

- Dude. Why on EARTH does the Doctor still have the hand there? Shouldn't he have moved it to the attic by now? Also, uh, what's with the significant shot of it? I guess we'll find out.

- I'm not going to lie, I really hate long lost relatives on tv shows. It's soapy, it's a cheap excuse for drama, and the relatives, if they're female, tend to have no real personality of their own and end up being glorified Mary Sues (and, judging from the preview, this show is no exception). However, if any show I've ever seen could pull it off without making me want to throw something at the screen, it's Doctor Who. Rusty seems to have a talent for giving female characters personalities, and at least we'll have some lulz.
AS LONG AS IT'S JUST ONE EPISODE. I swear to god, if she stays for any length of time, I will cry and bemoan the fate of the show.

Well, that was fun.
