Actually I think I have downloaded it a couple of times; one was lost, but the last time was a link I think you sent me. I have copies of every episode of the new show (except S8 & 9; first three of S7 - not all the best, but I might watch them some time) mostly because I know I will want to see Bill Potts eventually and I know you loved Clara so I will hopefully get my mojo back and write soeme fic for you.
Now RTD & Moffat are gone maybe the show will produce something I can hook on to, but I can't imagine it will ever recapture the real magic that Doctor Who used to have; S5 with Rory and Amy and Wee!Amelia almost caught it, but it escaped.
The Library eps and Blink are great TV SF; Blink some of the best ever made for TV, and I really want to write more Sally 'Shipton' stories some day. If I ever write River Song though there will be little relationship with her story as it developed after S5; hated that so much I haven't watched any new NuWho since I stopped at the mid S6 break; even with all the intriguing Clara/Bill Potts etc stuff.
At the time I didn't think much of who would be the new Doctor, and I remember saying to you I didn't and still don't like Peter Capaldi much - his work on TV and Radio not him, as AS The Doctor he has been just about as magical with fans as anyone I can think of in any role anywhere, but I think some part of me really wanted it to be a woman, though I didn't realise it at the time (part of my delight this time is that that same part of me didn't really expect it to happen at all - ever).
Going on too long, so I'll shut up now. Thanks for the card by the way; only one I got, so star prize to you ;-)
