What a great episode last nights Doctor Who was. Not only a return to Mars but the return of an old alien character I never expected to see or hear again. And I am not even talking about The Ice Warriors who off course are always a welcome sight in any story. I am referring to the cyclopian hysterical alien diplomat Alpaha Centauri who I have not seen any context other than as a representative for Galactic civility and is a wonderful mirror to the notion of infinite diversity in a huge universe. Also the fact she/he/it/they is a very BBC alien.Even the voice was like the familiar voice of an old companion one never expected to see again.
Could we be returning to Peladon in the near future?
Another wonderful moment in a really great new series.
