The Plot, She Is Twisty

Just saw the Doctor Who season finale ... I think I may have hurt my neck following all those plot twists. And the whole time, I kept wondering, "What's with the 'silence will fall' bit? Who's mucking around with the TARDIS?" When the answer turned out to be (SPOILER): "They have no idea, tune in next season to find out!" I was actually very pleasantly surprised. I fully expected a "That's the end, see you next year with new companions and a new storyline..." ending, rather than for it to keep on going, so good on ya, Mr. Moffat.

Now, here's my wish list for the future:

1.) More multi-part cliffhangers! Nothing says Doctor Who like monsters creeping in, no possible escape, and that electric PKEEEEWWWWW!!! stinger.

2.) Just a touch less soppiness please. :) It's better than the RTD era, but could be better still. ;)

3.) Don't let Matt Smith leave the show for at least five years. He's brilliant. The perfect not-what-I-was-expecting-but-better Doctor.

4.) Bring back the Brig. Please, while you can! Nick Courtney's not exactly a spring chicken. I've heard he was in an episode of Sarah Jane, but those aren't playing over here!

Alas ... now what am I going to miss on Saturday nights until the new season gets here?

PS: On a related topic, have all of the regenerations...

Yes! He was indeed in SJA and he was lovely, but I was astonished by his girth and I'm not sure how much longer we've got him for.

Matt Smith has really surprised me by turning out such a good Doctor. I'd really, really like an older guy next time though (as you say, however, let's hope Matt sticks around for a good long while).

I'm hoping Arthur Darvill will get title card billing in the new season..

Does anyone else get the impression that each time the Doctor regenerates, it was done by someone who never watched any of the previous ones?
