There’s a Doctor Who marathon leading up to the premier of season 6.
Right now the episode “The Waters of Mars” is on. This is a particularly magnificent episode – if for nothing else than for the last ten minutes or so. If you haven’t seen the episode, turn back now and stop reading.
The reason this bit is so great is that the Doctor, who normally tries very hard to stay out of the way of established history, declares himself not merely a survivor, but a winner1 and a lord of time with the mandate and right to rewrite history.
