Doctor Who night

Fairly major spoilers under the cut this time. Note that what's in these comments are fairly much my thoughts as I was watching the episode (and transcribed a bit later with the usual attendant errors and difficulties in reading my own handwriting). This will become important later.

What's most notable about this episode (apart from The Big Spoiler) is what had been going on in the background before it ever happened. Never mind the usual timelord stuff, I'd like to see more of The Adventures of The Silurian I Didn't Catch the Name Of and her Plucky Sidekick running around late Victorian London taking on the usual villains with what appear to be Japanese swords. That couple of characters could really do with being revisited.
