StoryWonk Sunday 27: A Pond Farewell

This week, we talk about what character arcs are and how to write them, what we thought of Amy and Rory in Doctor Who, and Alastair resists the urge to talk at length about Quantum Leap.

  1. Ok… so I was cruising along getting whiplash from bobbing my head in agreement with you on the Ponds and their story arcs until: She Who Shall Not Be Named. Donna Nobel. OMGWTFBBQ???

    I can’t let it go. What’s your hang up with Donna? And why don’t you have a hangup with Mouth Breather Rose who we had to endure for 2 series??

    Disclaimer: I had NO USE for Doctor Who until Donna’s season which makes David Tennant my First Doctor and Donna the Companion To Beat (Amy totally beats Donna, FYI ;p).

    Inquiring minds, and all that. ;p
