For the third time in about six weeks, I've fallen over, this time outside my own home. The same idiot who has been parking a ute in the driveway outside the door - right into the street, so illegal - has done it again. So I had to step around it, so, on an admittedly slippery morning, I tripped over a little ledge that is to the side of the driveway, and banged my knees yet again. I have NEVER tripped over that ledge, in all the years I have lived here. And one of my knees has been hurting for weeks now, due to a bruised bone, plus now it also has a graze. I can't kneel on it, and haven't been able to, for six weeks. The doctor says I just have to be patient and wait for it to get better. No fractures, fortunately.

I will be seeing my doctor in about half an hour, mainly for a medical certificate, as I just couldn't cope with a day at work after the shock, but I haven't wasted my time in the meantime.

I've been catching up with the episodes of Dr Who which I missed the last couple of weeks. I must say, this season is very good so far, and I'll be missing Peter Capaldi. His Doctor is almost as zany as Tom Baker, though he can get more serious. And I thought Thin Ice a particularly Tom Bakerish episode, though I can't see Baker calling his companion "boss".

What a nice surprise to see David Suchet in Knock Knock!

I also like the new companion. Bill is a companion who won't let the Doctor get away with any nonsense, though she also enjoys teasing him.

The scene in Thin Ice where she asks him if he's ever killed anyone, and challenges him, reminds me just a bit of Donna in The Fires of Pompeii.

I think the only companion I haven't really cared for was Amy, but then I didn't much care for that Doctor either.

Anyway, off to my own doctor(not Doctor!)
