Attention, Catherine Tate Mafia

Does anyone know of somewhere else that I can dump this slightly-used horse's head? I don't think I need it any more.

If you were as disappointed as I was to see that Catherine Tate was in only one episode of Dr. Who, you will be pleased to hear that she will be back for an extended run in Season 4.

In other geek-related news: Kylie Minogue will be guest starring in the next Dr. Who xmas special, and Torchwood is coming to BBC America.

I wish Catherine would hurry up and do a special or two now that she's wrapped up her own series. I've not even been seriously exposed to Dr. Who but I might have to give it a try just to get at the Tate.

Well, it's not nearly as bad as the previous series would lead you to believe. The old series (which ran for something like a quarter of a century) was mainly aimed at children and shut-ins although there were some bright spots.

The new one is definitely aimed at an adult audience and the writing reflects it. I've heard that the Torchwood spin off is decidedly not for children.

If you can, at least catch the episode with Catherine. She was really good. She's going to be playing the same character in the new season, and I'm looking forward to her coming back.
