One of the reasons we loved _Blink_ so much is that we saw the girl who
plays Sally Sparrow as Nina in a production of _The Seagull_ in Sloane
Square. The casting for the leading women in the Moffat stories has
been uniformly excellent, now that I think about it: the woman in the
WWII double-episode did a fine job as well.
If there truly were any Timelords left, though, they'd arrange the
timeline so that the execrable two-part _Daleks in Manhattan_ story was
"Some of us figured out in the 1950s Nick Moffitt
that blacklists were a bad idea. nick at zork.net
Some of us have that lesson still ahead of us."
