Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Rather a sweet thought...

I can't remember where I originally got this from - it might have been Elspeth Huxley's The Flame Trees of Thika; where it was, it was described as an Arabian proverb, although a quick Wikiquote search casts some doubt on that, but anyway:

A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
Doctor Who - Matt Smith is the Doctor

So...

...today was the day of the Big Reveal. Matt Smith and Karen Gillan on the first day of shooting, in costume.

Got to admit, I'm not wildly excited about the costume. I don't love it, but then I don't hate it. It doesn't have question marks on it, which is A Good Thing, and it does make Matt look a bit like the original vision for Peter Davison's Doctor - an old man stuck in a young man's body.

I suspect it'll grow on me.

And Karen Gillan? *eep* Think I may have a bit of a crush. *ahem*

Anyway, a graphic. I was going to do this as a proper LJ icon, but to be honest, the image isn't the best - I might wait until some decent promo pics appear. In the meantime...
