There's so much to love (and be utterly freaked out by) in the season premiere that aired tonight on BBC America! Oh, I've got high hopes for a great new season ahead! Suffice it for now to say that I'm ecstatic to see Alex Kingston back as awesome nerd-babe River Song and to welcome Mark Sheppard as a guest star to the Whoniverse. Sheppard's one of my favorite sci-fi character actors; from playing the rogue-ish Badger in "Firefly" to a slimy lawyer in "Battlestar Galactica" to a deliciously evil demon in "Supernatural," Sheppard has a gift for being memorable.
I'll do a full episode in a little bit. Here's a cast photo for now, though. I'm loving the Stetson hat on Eleven and River's rootin', tootin', latter-day Annie Oakley vibe.
