Once again, the Lords defend our freedom.

Among those voting to support the amendment to keep the limit at 28 days were former education secretary Baroness Morris, former MI5 head Baroness Manningham-Buller, former Lord Chief Justice Lord Woolf and former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Lord Condon.

When the former head of MI5 thinks that you’re wrong about terrorism, I’d say you’re probably wrong. I find the whole notion that the Government intends to lock people up for 42 days without even having to tell them what they are accused of deeply, deeply disturbing, and I’m very glad the Lords have once again stepped in to curb Government excess.

Moffat is new Doctor Who showrunner!

This is really just the best news ever. I guess the news I heard was true. 

Annoyingly, the full 5th series won’t actually be on until 2010. In 2009 all we get is 4 specials. Lame! Also lame is that the first of Moffat’s two-parter this series (The Silence in the Library) is delayed by a week due to Eurovision.
