Here be spoilers for the first half of season 7 of New Who.

I am a little hollowed out )
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
I finally got around to watching Series 5 and the Eleventh Doctor and you know what?

I like it. I actually do like it. Matt Smith has definitely grown on me (though that first episode... dude. Both he and Amy got on my nerves.) and Amy is, well, strangely cute. Really cute. Really, really cute. It's the Scottish accent. Or those shorts!

And Rory? I love Rory!

Menage a trois? I think so!

A year was enough time to remove RTD's Doctor from my head and allow room for Moffat. The only thing is that there sure seems to be a lot of horror going around in Series 5. Most of the episodes (with the exception of the two-part finale) are of the horror genre and that didn't occur to me until I finished watching the season. I know that's Moffat's thing and what he's good at, so I wasn't terribly surprised... but man. It got kind of old.

The magic isn't quite the same; I don't think it could be the same. It's a distinctly different style and it's a little more frenetic (ha, is that even possible?) than RTD was. And I think that's a good thing! (and I am all the more grateful that Tennant left with RTD and the changing of guard; I have the feeling that this series would have been awkward with Tennant as the Doctor at this point. He doesn't fit into Moffat's new vision of the world and, well, it probably would have grated on me for a number of reasons.)

Overall, the best summary I could give is that each episode was likeable, but there was no episode that stood out to me. Does that make sense? There were some kind of crap episodes during Series 1 - 4, but there were also those episodes that I can't help but watch over and over again. With Series 5, it was more like, pretty good... and meh. That's something to ponder.

Also, such a minor point, but after Donna and Ten, the contrast of Eleven and Amy (so young!) was a little startling.

So, this is a bit of an odd question, but I'm not sure where to even begin looking.

I've always wondered if there were even stories in regards to this out there. The idea comes from an unrealized script where Rose discovers that her whole life has been manipulated by the Doctor in order to turn her into the ideal companion. This was supposed to be episode 11, but due to certain issues, Boom Town was written instead. Here's the link

Synopsis: Involved the revelation that the Doctor had been manipulating Rose's life in order to turn her into the ideal companion.

Obviously, this is season 1 of New Who, so it's the Ninth Doctor. I feel like there must be one or two fics which have tackled this idea, but I've been combing various archives and it's slowgoing since there's no obvious filtering technique that will allow me to find such a specific plotline. -_-;;

Any suggestions would be loved!

I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING.

Journey's End gave me something that I didn't even know I had until right this moment.

Ten! Two! Rose! )

THIS MAKES ME HAPPY.

*cries*cries*cries*

I'm off on a family vacation tomorrow and I won't be around for the aftermath, which makes me sad, but I couldn't wait to watch it. So I did.

And...

There Be Spoilers )

Christopher Eccleston is playing Lennon in an biopic for BBC, and Naoko Mori will play Yoko Ono. The movie is called, Lennon Naked.

This blows my mind. Slightly.

I loved The Waters of Mars, the newest Doctor Who special.

LOVED IT.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
HOW DID I NOT KNOW DAVID TENNANT WOULD BE AT COMIC-CON IN SAN DIEGO? Effers! I had plans to go, but they got scuttled by life.

Now I regret it! Oh noes!

...

...

...

Oh well.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
It was a very ordinary episode. Nothing really exciting, but nothing really boring. Gotta admit, the ending, um.... prophecy? Overt foreshadowing? ANYWAYS. That was interesting, because it echoed Fires of Pompeii which I found rather funny. And "knock four times"? Hmmmm.

Either way, we know what's going to happen in a few months.

Also...

so excited about who's coming back for the 2009 2-part Christmas Special! )

Though push comes to shove...

I miss Rose and Martha and Donna. Lots.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
So the word is in that Michelle Ryan might be the new Companion.

She's young too.

Wow.

I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING BBC.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
Ok, so the new Doctor is a bit young and odd-looking (distinctive!)...

but surely?

Surely he is not the ANTI-DOCTOR?

MAVERICK!

SORRY THIS IS HORRIBLY WRONG BUT I COULDN'T HELP BUT THINK THAT SINCE NO ONE PREDICTED BBC IN PICKING MATT SMITH AND HE WAS THE COMPLETELY OUT-OF-NOWHERE CHOICE AND SOMEONE SAID IT WAS A MAVERICK PICK...

OMG.

SARAH PALIN IS THE NEW DOCTOR!

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
Well, I've noticed I've never posted my review about the Doctor Who 2008 Christmas Special and that is just, like, y'know, a crime.

But then I hear about the casting decision.

Whoops, still no review about the Christmas Special! (Other than it was kind of normal. Seriously. I guess it really is the Companions who make the show for me. And that I kept pausing it to do something else. Hm.)

So. The new Doctor. (or is that new new new Doctor? but that's stupid)

spoilers like WHOA )

Though, on the aside.

I suspect he might be a more sensual character than David Tennant, who had no kind of dangerous sexuality about him.

That quote made me laugh like a hyena.

And! Just for amusement, because these are the early days before we can be suckered into unending angst and triple-quadruple love triangles... awesome macros of the casting news.

Just so I leave on a happy note:


demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
I didn't know about this! (wow, I really suck at being connected)

BUT OMFG, LA? MY SISTER LIVES IN LA! I COULD TOTALLY MAKE HER GO.

And!

PAUL CORNELL will be there. The writer of Father's Day, quite possibly my favorite episode of all time.

But. Oh. Dude. I can't. With Whistler in January, Japan in March, East Coast (maybe) in June, and the Harry Potter/ComicCon thing going in July...

ASDFGHJKL!!

I need to think about this.

My friends know me so well. HA. Article on Time Slowing Down. Kind of.

The decision to add the extra second was made by an international consortium of time keepers and was announced on Monday.

International consortium of time keepers?

OMG.

THAT SOUNDS MUCH PRETTIER THAN IT SHOULD. There are shivers running up and down my spine.

DOCTOR WHO WHUT?
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Doctor Who - heka_granger - bananas are)
The elections really did a number on me because I literally JUST found out that David Tennant is stepping down as the Doctor and the Fifth series will, essentially, be with a new cast, new head, practically new everything.

HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS?

OH YEAH. I didn't check my flist.

(I read an article that said Billie Piper might be the Doctor and while I love her, I hope not, because I'd like her to remain Rose in the show.)

Though, at this point, I'd be kind of glad to have a new Doctor. Not that I don't like David Tennant, but with Davies changing, with the producers changing, it seems appropriate to have a new Doctor too. Plus, Davies' love for 9/10/Rose will kind of always stay in this nice little bubble.

... we still have a Christmas special and three specials ahead in the next year, so it's not like it's the end of seeing Tennant!Doctor.

I still can't believe I didn't hear about this for almost TWO WEEKS. THIS IS REALLY SAD. Clearly, I have to get back into LJworld.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
This article says that Doctor Who fans are more likely to be Republicans and... no way. Everyone I know (and in the strictly-outside-of-LJ sense) who likes Doctor Who tend to be independent, and leaning more to the moderate and liberal side of politics.

The article is short, so I'm not really believing it, but when I read that, I feel like saying, NO WAY, in a loud, obnoxious voice. Ho.
demeter918: blue doraemon cat (Default)
I was just the teensiest bit surprised when I read the news this morning about the 'spoilers' RTD has been throwing out regarding the Christmas Special this year.

Ho, this is good.

at least I now know... )

I bet it's a mid-life crisis.

Snerk.

fic rec!

The Ex by [livejournal.com profile] azriona (implied Doctor/Rose, River Song)
I like River Song enough (to the point that I can see her coming onto the show in the future with Tennant and not being terribly bothered by it) and this fic was short and sweet and reconciled my viewpoint of the possible future!Doctor/River with the Doctor and Rose of the past. It's a lovely piece of writing and it got me tearing up, just a bit.
