Donna was an interesting departure from the norm; though she showed affection for the Doctor, she wasn't anywhere near as ZOMG LUV U as the previous two. However, she was a little over-the-top sometimes (Catherine Tate's previous roles subconsciously creeping in?), and really, I prefer Martha. Still, her grandpa was quite a fun minor character, and the fact that he played more of a role than her mother was also a nice quirk.

Overall, the forth series was mixed. We had quite a few absolutely duff episodes, and a slightly disappointing season finale; we also had a couple of magnificent gems (Midnight, Silence in the Library). The fifth series looks to be promising - we still have Tenant as the Doctor, and now Moffat is taking over as lead writer. I can't wait. :3

We do? I thought he only said he's consider it if asked.

I'm sure if they weren't considering bringing Tennant back as the Doctor, they would have killed him or something so he could regenerate. It would be more convenient, anyway.

Just thinking about the Donna thing makes me sad... I think the ending was very powerful, but are you talking about the very end or just the... stuff that happens at the end? D:

Well, assuming that he doesn't regenerate in the Christmas episode...

Um, we still have the four (or however many) specials that will air through 2009.

And the fact that he's signed on until 2010.
