NB: Here in the Antipodes we have just seen S5:Ep07 Amy’s Choice – please be spoiler aware for episodes beyond this!
We’re actually a bit past the middle of this season – already.
I’m enjoying the characters (especially Amy Pond’s habit of almost nonchalant problem-solving), but despite Moffat’s talking them down I am seeing the budget cuts in the costume and special effects for the aliens and monsters, and I wish the Beeb hadn’t cut back like this. They are raking it in from Doctor Who on the sales of not just the series itself but all the associated merchandise – why cut costs like that on their biggest moneymaker?
