Donna won my heart tonight...again  
Donna is one of those characters that everyone can love. She's funny, compassionate, and knows how to speak her mind. If I hadn't already loved her though, I most definitely would have by the end of "The Fires of Pompeii."

Despite his mantra that everything comes to an end, the one thing the Doctor hates is death. So, because he has to repeatedly decide who lives and who dies, all this guilt keeps piling up and piling up until it's a wonder the man can even function properly, let alone look himself in the mirror.

The worst part is that there really isn't much of a choice in these situations: Gallifrey or the universe, Pompeii or the Earth. One must choose the lesser of two evils and any one of us would make the same decision, despite how desperately awful that choice may be. Tonight, Donna showed him that. She put her hands over his and pushed that lever down right along with him. She took some of the responsibility away from him, some of the guilt.

She gave him the one thing no one else has ever thought to give him. If Rose was a band-aid for the wound caused by Gallifrey's destruction, than Donna is the salve soothing the burn from that band-aid's removal.

I say let the healing begin. And keep those episodes rolling.

Two episodes in and I already love this season better than the third. Donna has been my favorite even before this season started. She was wonderful in The Runaway Bride and she will continue to get more wonderful. Rose will always be my top favorite but Donna is pulling a close, very close second. I'm on the bandwagon of Donna winning hearts, along with you.
