Watched yesterday (contains Doctor Who spoilers)

Doctor Who: The End Of Time, Part Two - 5/5
For much of this, I had no idea what was going on. Some guff about a 'white point star' and time locks. It was entertaining though. However, once the story had been tied-up, writer and producer Russell T. Davies took the 10th Doctor on an incredibly moving, valedictory sweep through friends and companions past, culminating with a visit to 2005 and a pre-Doctor Rose. Of course the Doctor of 2005 was Christopher Eccleston, so while we were saying an on-screen goodbye to David Tennant in this sequence, this was really Davies saying goodbye and handing over the chalice to Steven Moffat. He couldn't have done it better.

[Note: I heard last night that the Matt Smith sequence at the end was written by Moffat himself and filmed by his team.]

Las Vegas: And Here's Mike With The Weather - 3/5

24: Day 7, 9pm-10pm - 4/5

24: Day 7, 10pm-11pm - 4/5
