In My Own Words:

Nokia 106 Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black by Nokia
2 of 4 people found the following review helpful
I just wanted a simple but solid phone and that's what I got. It's actually quite difficult to get the back off to insert the SIM card, but this could be a bonus in the future, as two of my older phones have had weak plasticky backs, held on by lugs which broke away in time. The transfer of phone numbers from my old Finnish SIM went easily, and then I bought a pay-as-you-go SIM, which was totally plug and play. As I don't make many calls, the battery lasts at least a week.
Why didn't I give it 5 stars? It doesn't have 'the look', unlike, for example, the JCB phone, but then the Nokia 106 is a hell of a lot cheaper - so you get what you pay for.
Doctor Who - Series 7 Part 1 [DVD + UV Copy] <b>DVD</b> ~ Matt Smith
I give it five stars for:
1. Storyline - always fresh, engaging and with unexpected twists.
2. Characters - I love certain aspects of the Doctor's character (like he lies, is often late, he hates violence, he is totally loyal to the current assistant in his care etc).
3. FX - they have grown with the show. Back in 1963, with William Hartnell as the Doctor, effects were probably as state-of-the-art as the budget allowed, but were mostly smoke, flames and clever cutting. Now we have CGI (and the budget is clearly bigger), but the actors still carry the show :-)
4. Actors - ever changing, but we love them all.

I give it five stars for:
1. Storyline - always fresh, engaging and with unexpected twists.
2. Characters - the Doctor has his weaknesses, just like Superman, which makes him even more of a hero. Each assistant is quite distinct, and when two or more come together in an episode we are waiting for the inevitable interaction.
3. FX - thoe FX are great, but the show does not rely on them.
4. Actors - even though the characters are usually out of this world, the actors succeed in giving them humanity, which makes it possible to really relate to them.
