The Doctor's Shenanigans

Hello, I'm the Doctor, I'm a time traveler, I've got two hearts, I'm 1200-ish. I like to travel around, grab random strangers, and go on crazy adventures. On occasion, I fight evil, and save the day. Also sometimes I lie, but I promise, at least some of that is true. Anyway, this is my tumblr... or blog, where I both tumble and blog about said adventures. You can ask me questions, keep track of my adventures, and I can answer your questions, and... also keep track of my adventures. Anyways I can tell we'll have a lot of fun together, so let's get started. Geronimo!!

Docto Who Re-Watch: Series One

So I’ve finished Series One, and I’m going to share my thoughts with you. Be warned though, there’s an awful lot of gushing about Chrisopher Eccelston below.

Doctor Who Re-Watch

Hello, and happy Munday! This upcoming November I’m going to be running a panel at the Long Island Doctor Who con about the changing nature of the show. I thought, as a sort of practice it might be a good idea to do a write up contrasting and comparing Russell T. Davies, and Steven Moffat, seeing as I’ve seen a lot of people compare them, but usually in a “This one is terrible because look at how the other one handled this aspect” and I can’t say I like that method.

And the new series starting next month, it’s the perfect time to do a re-watch of the modern Doctor Who Series one through seven, both as prep for series eight, and as research for the above comparison; Davies was on the show from 2005-2010, Moffat has been on from 2010- present . so five years and four years respectively, by the end of Series 8, both will have worked on four series, (three with a younger Doctor, one with an older Doctor played by a distinguished actor.) RTD’s era had five companions, Moffat’s had four. It seems about as close to examining them under equal conditions as one would get.

So I’m going to watch the whole show, I’m going to try to be both as critical, and objective as I can. So not going to be generous, but also trying to avoid reading any agendas into things.

Why am I telling you this now though? Well because I’m going to end up with a lot of notes that won’t really fit with my final thoughts, and since it looks like I’ll finish a series, or block of specials or what not on a munday, I kind of wanted to share my thoughts on the individual series. So expect a new post about each series, and I’ll file them all under the tag #DoctorWhoRewatchFORSCIENCE!! And I’d love to get asks about my thoughts and have a real discussion with you guys, tell me about your favorites, and ones you didn’t like.

It’s always nice to have a tea party with someone who understands you.

Tea, jammy dodgers, tea, discussions of having to deal with a child who’s had their body altered by the bad guys, can show up a different age at different times, possesses knowledge beyond human understanding of time and space, has incredibly destructive power and an association with silence. 

It’s just a good time all around.

I hit him in the face with a football during PE and had to take him to the Nurse’s station. Fast friends!

He was also one of the only people who didn’t think I was a complete lunatic when I would talk about the Doctor.

Please tell me something embarrassing about Rory and Mels childhood, please?

Rory was the tree in our Year Four production of Cinderella. Mels was the princess.

image

She changed the ending in the middle of our performance because she didn’t think that Cinderella actually needed a prince. She claimed she needed “a Doctor.”

'Bout time you showed up! I was starting to think you bailed on me. Mels not with you then?

image

I guess I can accept ice cream as a form of apology. Why would Mels’ name be on a soda?

Anyway you lot, Rory’s here. Make sure you send him some questions as well; I’d love to see him answer some asks.

image

Bail? On you? I’d never bail on you, Amy!

image

She’s not here yet? Oh. That’s not good.

image

I don’t know.

image

But I thought it was cool?

I was convinced I was, “one of the boys.”

And then I found miniskirts.

I could tell you so many embarrassing stories about Rory though. Give me topic and I could talk for days.
