That does looks like a cool place to get a coffee.

Have I mentioned yet how hot Jenna Louise-Coleman is?

Jenna is a better fake typist than Matt Smith.

This article says it's at the Grange St Paul's Hotel. It would be neat to check out if passing through London. There are spoilers for the show before you click. http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-rad...-of-saint-john

The Sky Bar it seems http://www.summer-party-venues.co.uk...s-summer-party

I'm sure she's better at a lot of things.

New Tennant drama might be worth checking out.

I do like the trappings of Doctor Who even when I'm not crazy about everything in a given episode.

Re: 7x06 The Bells of St John - review/ discussion

Well, that was a bit of a snoozer, all right. As mentioned above, some of the bits with the Doctor and Clara were cute and fun, but over all, the show was a bit lacking. I really hope that the remainder of the series improves a bit.

I should mention that I DO like the redesigned interior of the TARDIS, though. Great visual stuff.

Re: 7x06 The Bells of St John - review/ discussion

I thought it was a very clever episode. Nothing outstanding, but the moments worked for the most part. There was some good tension and some good surprises. I didn't expect the reveal at the end (I suspect he'll be a reoccurring villain).

What's with the backwards poll choices?

At least Clara is on board at last, though I don't really need another companion mystery to sort out. Still, Jenna is fun to watch with Matt, and so far I have enjoyed her on the show more than Karen/Amy.

Immortal for that line alone!

I liked it a lot, and Jenna is just gorgeous as well... the bit with the bad boss-lady reverting to her childhood self after the factory restore was pretty chilling.

Clara's gaining of the computer knowledge seems a clear foreshadowing of her genius status and supernal hacking abilities in "Asylum", making one think that this episode takes place before that one in her chronology... but then she would have recognized the Doctor. I'll wait and see how they tie that together. One thing I've learned is to not to obsess about the plot details fitting together this early in the series... it'll get context eventually.

Perhaps we have a Michael Moorcock kind of scenario here... Clara is the "Eternal Companion"!! There are different versions of her in different time periods but they share experiences and knowledge.

And the Doctor as Stormbringer.

I think there's some kind of echo in time that created the other versions of her, but I agree it's something that happens later (probably during her time with the Doctor).

I thought I spotted the Doctor's ex-flatmate Craig as one of the uploads.
