When I began writing about Moffat’s Women, it was out of concern for the companion Steven Moffat had created in Amy Pond, as well as concern about the focus on Karen Gillan’s physical attributes rather than on the character’s intelligence or personality. Now that we’ve had a full series of Amy, how does she stack up?
“Yes! Release his Occidental (College) records! Release his high school records! Why won’t Barack Obama release his elementary school report cards? We need to know if he played well with others!

It's Official: Girls Aloud To Return In 2012 With Cheryl
Girls Aloud will reunite in 2012 to mark their 10th anniversary, their manager has confirmed.
Hilary Shaw said to expect the five-piece to perform together to mark the milestone. “Everybody wants them to make a comeback and it will be next year. Well, it is their 10th anniversary so there will be something,” she said.
But she added that fans shouldn’t expect a new studio album just yet, asCheryl Coleis busy with her solo career and her rumoured X Factor USA slot.
As for the other girls, Nicola Roberts is readying a solo LP, Sarah Hardingis concentrating on acting and Kimberley Walsh on TV presenting. Nadine Coyle’salbum flopped when it was released late last year.
The Girls Aloud boss also insisted that all five members are still good friends, despite rumours of infighting. “The girls are still getting on great, they speak all the time, and that includes Cheryl and Nadine with the other girls,” Hilary told The People. “Cheryl is keen to get back with the girls and is planning something which could be a one-off or some gigs.”
Girls Aloud haven’t recorded together since 2008’s Out Of Control.
