The angels have my phone award

Two Whoish things:

1) Catherine Tate was robbed! Of an award, that is. She won the popular vote for the People's Choice at the British Comedy Awards, but a bit of back-stage shenanigans gave her award to someone who didn't deserve it. She isn't always my cup of tea, but she has done some fabulously funny stuff, and is really shining on Doctor Who as Donna, as I predicted.

2) Steven Moffat, the brilliant mind behind "The Empty Child", "The Doctor Dances", and the incredibly funny TV show Coupling, won a BAFTA award for writing "Blink", perhaps the single best hour of television in any genre ever (and I will even put it up against even Firefly's "Out of Gas", which was extraordinary).

Congrats to both!

In case you're curious, the title of this post is a joke on a great line from Blink.
