on the Doctor Who finale  
So I mostly just feel like I'm glad to be done with that season? There were some bright spots, but man, it was grim. And I didn't like the episode, for reasons that have way more to do with what I like in stories than anything about the episode, probably, but it wasn't the note I wanted to end on. (Like, there were several things that, if they had happened in a different episode, I would have been all over, but instead I just felt like it all felt weary and hollow, to me. This is not objective! I hope everyone who wanted to love it was able to love it. I just didn't.)

And I really hate being That Person, but I miss Eleven and my Ponds more than ever now.

I don't think it's such a bad thing to be That Person. :-)

Heh. I just feel like the whole engine of the show is change - complaining about what's no longer there is unseemly! :)

I did laugh ENDLESSLY at the Santa reveal, and chalked it up to Moffant being unable to not write Who as a Comedy after all. :)

Hee! Yes - it did feel like "wow, that was a bit gloomy, wasn't it? Let's add Nick Frost as Santa to make it better!"
