That last scene between Rose and the Doctor was just so sad, but poignant. It wasn't the catharsis for which I was looking--not really--but it came close. I cried. I knew that the Doctor would run out of time before he could say it, but still, watching it happen.... Wow.

The Tenth Doctor is my favourite television character bar none now. At the beginning of season 2 I was worried, I'll admit, that David Tennant would not make a good Doctor. However, he has shown himself to be a stupendous Doctor (not that I'm really qualified to judge, since I haven't seen any of the older episodes). The way that he captures the character of the Doctor--and the character of the Doctor himself, his actions--is why I love to write. I must admit that I am envious of Russel T. Davies and the other Doctor Who writers. Season 2 wasn't the best television I've watched, but the Doctor himself made it worth watching.

The DVD set for season 2 is $113.96 on Amazon though, and I can't find it on the Future Shop website, so I don't think I'll be buying season 2 anytime soon, sadly--even though I am becoming addicted to buying DVDs, I have not yet fallen so far as to justify a >$100 purchase. That's more than the cost of my DVD player.

I don't know where to go from here. I hope that the CBC will show the Christmas special sometime before, say, next Christmas. You never know; it could happen.

And I'm freakin' jealous of the TARDIS. The Stargate has nothing on the TARDIS (anyone who knows of my love for the Stargate as a plot device will know how significant a statement that is).
