Finally saw Thor: The Dark World and am even more of a Jane Foster fangirl than I was before, but also rather annoyed that we didn't get more Sif. Ambiguous about Frigga's fate. People who complain about Loki's storyline in the film seem to miss the point that Loki always flirts with redemption but NEVER actually attains it, because in the end, Loki cares most about Loki.

Most of the second half of November has been taken over by Doctor Who and the 50th Anniversary celebrations. Apart from Google debuting its wonderful Doctor Who mini-game (which I still haven't beaten because the last level always defeats me) and Yahoo turning its logo into the TARDIS, everybody in this country seemed to go DW mad yesterday. Absolutely loved Day of the Doctor. Moff not only made me happy to see David and Billie again but he even managed to make me love "I don't want to go" aka my most hated Ten moment. John Hurt was brilliant, of course, plus the long-awaited cameo from You Know Who. The screen practically dripped with money and it was nice to see the BBC didn't scrimp for once.

To be honest, I think my favourite thing about the whole celebration was Peter Davison's contribution The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. You really need to see this somehow, because it is hilarious, rampant meta, starring Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy with cameos from EVERYONE (and I really do mean everyone).

Have bought most of my big Christmas presents for the family already. Off to see Gravity this evening, hopefully it lives up to expectations. Will be making a Christmas cards post in the next week or soon.

We enjoyed The Day of the Doctor but loved The Five(ish) Doctors! I thought it was great that they even got Sean Pertwee and David Troughton involved. Sarah got back from university in time to watch it together (as we have since they brought it back with Christopher Eccleston). I quite enjoyed the TV film about William Hartnell too.

The Five(ish) Doctors was amazing! Especially Janet Fielding waking Peter up. An Adventure in Space and Time (or, as my friends and I like to call it, An Adventure in Space and Tears) was brilliant: well acted, well directed, well written.
