My lovely wife got me a beautiful Swarovski crystal necklace and a scanner for slides and prints (which I've always wanted to scan some of my family's old slides), and Mom got me some pretty shirts. Dinner was absolute perfection, with delicious lamb, mashed potatoes, and marvelous brussels sprouts (can't beat 'em fresh!).
Then I watched both Waters of Mars and The End of Time, part one, and...
OMG SQUEEE!!! Time Lords! Time Lords! HUNDREDS of Time Lords! Exactly what the Doctor needed! Wheeee!
I think on the whole RTD is great at plotting, but he falls down a LOT with his finales, so I hope the ending of this is as promising as part one has been - both WoM and TEoT were pretty awesome -- but then, Journey's End started off well, too.
I'm going to miss Ten like crazy, but I am looking forward to Eleven's time in the TARDIS and seeing what's coming next. On the whole, WoM showed me that while Tennant has been brilliant in this part, and RTD has done very well with the whole thing, he really does have a serious problem with large-scale plotting, and he does "END OF THE WORLD" shit way too often. The Doctor has dealt with "everyone dies" before; he's also had to deal with "my friend may die" situations before. I love the emotion which Ten has portrayed, but really -- he's the Doctor. Time to move on. And the return of the Time Lords may give him the kick in the trousers he needed.
I am very happy.
And a little tipsy. Drank wine with dinner, and before dinner, and having another lovely glass now. Mmmmm. Happy dinner, happy Christmas, happy Dr. Who. Happy me.
And I got a Festivus egg:

Hope everyone else is happy, too!
