I got to watch the latest episode of Doctor Who last night which included the introduction of Oswin, the companion who apparently will be taking over once the Ponds leave.
And I have to admit that Oswin's part of the story was the only thing that I didn't completely hate. Granted, I didn't hate the whole thing in general...it still suffers from Moffat's very lazy story telling. And I don't mean lazy as in slow...I watch both French New Wave and Japanese film...I know when slow can be enjoyable.
But ever since Moffat took over the general writing of Doctor Who, it's like he has the certain things he wants to cover, but isn't paying attention to how he's covering.
Also unlike some Doctor Who fans, I really don't have a problem with Matt Smith...yes, he isn't David Tennant, but when Tori Amos came out with her second album, I really wasn't expecting it to be Little Earthquakes Part II.
Now, I am a bit annoyed with Oswin simply because she'll be replacing Amy and Rory, both of whom, I've grown quite fond of, but as has been apparent for quite a long time, people come and go in the show...not just the companions but the doctors as well.
What do you think?

PS I do have a slight problem with Oswin: that the Doctor will go back across her timeline, pick her up, and then put her back so that she once again ends up in this episode. I don't like that she's automatically tragic.
