First parliament, now the Tardis

Never mind the first British-Asian women MPs, tonight on BBC1 I think we've just had the first ever Brit Asian in Doctor Who's tardis!  Or at least the first person in there ever to be called Nasreen Chaudary. Am I right? If yes, you go girl!

In fact, reading elsewhere about this just now, Meera Syal has apparently been desperate to appear on the show for some time. I'm not surprised. She and I are about the same age and so, growing up, the programme must have the same iconic status for her as for me. (Though I must say, I've tried but I'd still prefer David Tennant...sigh...him and Meera would have been magic.)

Doctor Who continues on Saturdays at 6.15pm on BBC One.

Did you watch it? I did. The point where she clapped the speech the doctor was making...that would be me. I clapped too.
I'm so jealous of her and even though he's not Tenant, he's the Doctor.
I was also a big fan of Christoper Ecclestone.
This current doctor, not sure about as he's a bit more sinister than the previous two.

I watched most of it - Matt Smith sinister? Hmm, interesting...I'm not getting that yet. All I see is young, young, too young. I'm persevering though.
