Doctor Who Review: Acceptance

I loved all the references to prior adventures for long time fans. They did however get one wrong. The Doctor references the clockwork monsters as being from a ship similar to the one in "Girl in the Fireplace". While this is correct, he NAMED the ship when he referred to it. He never knew the name of the ship. The episode ended with him wondering why they were so intent on Madame de Pompadour but never finding out. The reason was only revealed to the viewer at the end of the episode after the Tardis fades out and on the wall behind where it was is a painting of Madame de Pompadour (with a name plaque under it) followed by another shot of the ship in space with it rotating to show the ship name as "Madame de Pompadour" (all prior shots of the outside of the ship did not show the ship name).

Is it that Jessica does not like him or just as she stated when he wanted his name there as his reward that she feels he is not (yet) ready to be a "Name Partner"? That "yet" is important. It is the difference between her feeling about him not being qualified or just not ready.

I wonder if he REALLY wants his name on the door right now or is just trying to get Jessica to submit so he can then turn around and reject her submission to his demand. As the reviewer said, does he really want to be a name partner in the firm given the circumstances?
