Beast Below & Winston Churchill

Now, as most of you should know, my husband-to-be has created a time machine.  Just for me.  But since it's a prototype, the only thing we can get are Doctor Who episodes.  The theory bases itself on the fact that the Doctor has created such an impact on the space-time continuum, we can tap directly into his adventures.  And that's TOTALLY how I get episodes weeks ahead of other Americans.  Official statement.

So I've seen the second and third episodes of the season.  The second episode, The Beast Below, airs on BBC America this Saturday.  The UK (and my time traveling television) has already seen the third episode, but I won't mention the title due to spoilers (but you might have a clue if you follow my twitter). 

I'm still impressed with Matt Smith.  He's not the same Doctor that David Tennant was, but even in the canon he isn't supposed to be -- he's supposed to be "new" each time.

Right now, I'm more interested in Karen Gillian's character, Amy/Amelia.  They dropped a medium sized bomb about her, referring to an event from the recent canon. I'll be vague for two reasons: one, I don't want to spoil it, and two, I'm not exactly sure which incident they are referring to.  Look, it's a show about traveling through time in which you can't do things twice but he did that one time with Rose and than there was a point where 2 years was rewound, but some people remember it but there's also this alternate universe floating that I left around here somewhere.

In conclusion: wibbly  wobbly timey wimey.
