Even though he did many terrible things, 'at least he helped us out in our time of need' - forgetting that was out of self-interest too.

It's amazing how quickly the British Left went from "Peace now" to "Second front now" when Germany invaded Russia.
Stalin's victims were mostly among his own people. Things that happen close to home have a much bigger impact on how we feel. If we go by the numbers, we'd say Stalin was responsible for about 15 million deaths (or up to 60 million according to other sources in Sovjet Russia.

I believe you can make a case for Hitler's victims, excluding legitimate war dead, being in the region of 13 million. The 7m gentiles being an assortment of slavs, gypsies, homosexuals, social democrats (and those further Left), disabled people, and the generally awkward, in any other way. For Stalin, I'd look nearer the higher end than the lower of the scale you quote.

Why the brief switch to Cyrillic? SSSR would do if you must say it in Russian. You didn't write Сталин for "Uncle Joe".

Sounds more like a James Bond title than one for Doctor Who. But from what I saw on Doctor Who: Confidential, which I think included a few seconds as a teaser for next week, the kids (or their teachers...) have got Matt Smith's Doctor to a tee.

I believe that's the point. He's gotta keep you hooked for the rest of the series... :)

I'm getting so fed up of the music.

For the last few weeks we have been bombarded with "it's brilliant/so funny/incredible writing" interviews from cast/writers.

It may well have been, but a shed-load was drowned out by the so called "background" music.

Same goes for the narration in Confidential.

I'm on the verge of throwing in the towel.

Yeh I noticed the music getting in the way as well during last weeks. It makes you focus more on the music and less on the story :cry:

I was kinda hoping Night Terrors would be a good one.

BTW, just watched Let's Kill Hitler last night. Good enough romp that answers a few questions about River's origins. Not only that, but it confirms that she was the girl in 1969, and that she is thought to be the one who killed the future Doctor at the beginning of the series.

I liked it, in the sense that it's the only one for a while that's been 'scary', in my opinion, most people probably did not find it frightening at all, but there you go :oops:

I didn't find it scary, but it was more interesting and intriguing that later episodes have been. (But then again, I hate River with a passion so whenever she turns up the episode is ruined for me)

I hate creepy dolls and everything else that falls into that category, such as clowns and puppets :? I also don't like River very much

Me too! And I'm easily scared, so that distracted me from the fact that it wasn't actually that good, but it was quite a clever concept.
