Dr Stu on Doctor Who 2

Doctor Who - Aliens of London. I have to admit it, I am now sold on this whole Doctor Who thing. The new series is just awesome and its great having something to watch on Saturday nights that isn't totally vacuous like "Come Dancing" or Ant and Dec's sketch show, Blind Date or whatever other grue they dredge up. Sadly I missed the Victorian one but it didn't really impact on this episode and having BBC3 at home I watched the documentary afterwards as well.

Ok - maybe a few less fart jokes would've been good. Damn good cliffhanger though and its nice to have London as the centre of an alien invasion rather than New York or Washington DC. Someday soon they'll invade Edinburgh and Glasgow once some Sci-Fi writer finds those towns on the map.

One question though - how the hell did Rose's council estate get an American TV station? Is this some thing to placate the Yanks?
