    You mentioned that one of the 10th Doctor’s catch phrases is “wellll”. That made me think back to Tom Baker’s Doctor who also used to say that quite a bit. It never occurred to me before.

  2. Great show!
    I was out of town all week, and had a nice Bridging the Rift waiting for me when I got home. 🙂
