3 weeks ago, now, I saw an episode of Dr. Who.

Everyone was anticipating a great one. It was being written by Steven Moffat, who had given us Blink in the season before, amongst other things.

It was a 2 parter. Part 1 – Shadows in a Library killing people. Maybe it’s an ancient evil. Maybe not.

It was fantastic. An utterly amazing cliff hanger. “Bugger,” was the first word through my head. “Still. Maybe it wouldn’t be so much like this story I’ve been telling here.”

Part 2 rolled past last week and gave us a set of utterly authentic “hide behind the sofa” moments. The story was deliriously meta, with “Spoilers” being the most uttered word. It was a piece of sheer genius and utterly spoilt this thing that I’m about to finish.

Not that I care – because it’s the best piece of TV I’ve seen in a while.

Get them, see them, love them. They are:  “Silence in the Library“/”Forest of the Dead” (which should link to the wikipedia articles on them).

Until then – enjoy “Spelling,” the final part of my darkness story.
