Dr Who, Seaon 4

We finished up Dr Who, Season 4 last night.

I had made some observations about the season.

The season had these themes:

- Self-Sacrifice
- The Doctor's Hidden Name
- Your past comes back to haunt you

I certainly did not predict everything about the finale, but I certainly got the themes!

We both felt that the finale was a cheese filled tour-de-force. This was a good thing, not a bad one. It was good cheese.

Donna was just a terrific character.

We will never, truly know about the Timewar because it is a plot device, not a history. To know the history of the Timewar is to destroy its utility. In many ways, it is more real because you are ignorant of it.
