I don't actually think Blink is a great introductionary episode - yes it's great, but it's not exactly representative of what Who is. Anyone who watches it and expects more just like it the next week is going to be disappointed.

I've never understood why people like the codename theory, why does everything have to be explained?

I did the audiobooks like that a couple of years ago. One chapter a night (well, in theory. Generally Stephen Fry's dulcet tones would send me to sleep part way through and I'd catch up again in the shower in the morning!) I started on 30th June, finished on 12th January. Best bit about it - having the three Godric's… » 9/20/14 4:50pm 9/20/14 4:50pm
