[edit]

Finally, the return of Doctor Who, for many the real event of late spring, with Easter coming merely as a distraction.

I'm not going to write much about it now, because I want to write about the second episode but can't yet, because it would spoil everything; but suffice to say that the writer Steven Moffat's needling, recurrent themes — love being tested; how much of what we "are" being down merely, yet also triumphantly, to memory — are heating up with an intoxicating dazzle, the CGI is proper boss, Karen Gillan (Amy) and Matt Smith (the Doctor) have all the charm and magic of a birthday high tea, and to open a series with the incontrovertibly final death of a Time Lord rivals the opening line of The Bell Jar ("It was a queer, sultry summer the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York") as a way of getting something started with the kind of almighty punch in the face, which immediately makes you want to have another, almighty punch in the face. It's all very nine out of ten.
