New Dr. Who--a moment of grace

I know I already mentioned that I'm really enjoying the New Dr. Who, and that I also enjoy the recaps that Jacob does for it over at Television Without Pity.

But the episode "The Doctor Dances" took my breath away. And Jacob gave me a perfect description of why.

"God's grace is the reminder that you always have been free -- it's just the default setting to be too afraid to reach for it -- and the gentle push that turns you around to face it. God's grace is a day like this, a genocide redeemed in a single day where no one dies. When the Doctor gets objective evidence that what he's chosen to be is informed by his actions, a well-formed equation, and he's reminded that he can dance again. That he never forgot how. This show is not fucking around."
