Donna Nobel, A 'temp' from bla bla bla anyways:

Donna for the latin Lady
Temp as in Tempus Latin for Time
Nobel as in Lord


But yeah like most of the things I tend to work out, it doesn't happen how I'd have liked. :(

She's the fasted temp in Chiswick; 100 words per minute!

If you interpret it literally, then I think it's supposed to be Dalek Caan's fault. But then, when confronted with it, Dalek Caan simultaneously confirms and denies everything.

However, I thought the better resolution was that Donna was special - in the same way the Doctor finds everyone to be special, important, and so-on, no matter how trivial they might appear to be.
She just had no sense of self-worth (when we first meet her) and, due to the various outside influences (The Doctor, Rose in the alternative timeline) came to have some sense of her own value.
In each timeline, the external influences proved to be... misleading. I thought the apex of her character was that moment in "Turn Left" when she gambled her life to save the world. There are very few people who would or could make that choice at that moment, or even conceive of something like that working... and she consciously made a decision to step under a van.

^ Is this coherent? ._.

I do like the Master though. I forget his actor's name, but if you like him, I recommend the series Life on Mars (it's a 1970's cop drama based around a time-travel plot, VERY good series).


I like John Simm, and I thought his portrayal of "Madman-who-wants-to-conquer-Earth-and-then-the-universe-because-he-has-a-banging-headache" to be very compelling.

I just wonder what he would have been like playing The Master.

Nice Incognitus. There was that bit with the visible skull where I though he was seeking another regeneration or something like that, but nah - RTD "I'll just give him super powers"


Oh has anyone heard any information about the box set DVD of this series containing bits from in between the episodes, called something like "What happens in the TARDIS"?

I've kept the finale on my planner.

The moment the universe goes Kablammy in "The Pandorica Opens" and the "Something Borrowed" scene from "the Big Bang" still make me want to cry like a baby.

Anyone following the Sarah Jane Adventures?

I've started watching this season solely for the upcoming "The Death of the Doctor" episode, featuring Matt Smith and Katy Manning reprising her role as Third Doctor companion Jo Grant.

I haven't watched a single Dr Who episode.

I'm like 10 seasons behind.

Should I start with the first?

Has anyone else read the books? They seem to tie in quite well with the series and I don't know if what I've been reading will lead onto the next series.

Great thing about Doctor who is that even though it's into it's 32nd series you can start from pretty much anywhere and know and start to understand what it's about and what's going on.

Yeah. Jo Grant. I'm hoping RTD gives her a bit more characterization without derailing her completely. It will be nice to have a lot more old references - I like the fact that they had the Brigadier on a few years ago.

And, now that I know this, I am up in arms.

Any reviews? :)

lol Tom baker actually ran through that room when he was getting chased by a Sontaran, and I think Lela had a bit of a swim in it once. Think is though they used an old abandoned factory, it didn't look like the walls of the tardis it had pipes and stuff all over, hence why people think that the concept art there is of the corridors, others argue that it's from the series 5 episode with the Silurians.

The game was an apparent let down with having only one other room, and all the other corridors ending back into the console room.

Oh that's great news. Heck, I got excited when Tennant went into "the attic" XD


One of the reasons I've always wanted to make a Doctor Who fangame has *always* been to make a cool Tardis set. I too was pissed off by the Tardis game.


I'd like to see the Cloister Room, and the boot cupboard. We know the cloister room still exists inside the Tardis because the cloister bell kept going off in Seasons 4/5.

Wasn't it either The Keeper of Traken or Logopolis where you seen the Cloister Room? All covered in vines n' stuff or was that when Tegan got lost inside?

I'd like to see each assistants rooms, mind you though they'd only have to construct a T shape corridor and put up a fake wall now and then, with shooting from different ends it could work.

That was fun seeing a Police Box inside of a Tardis, just remembered about that bit :P

Yeah - it appeared a lot throughout Tom Baker's final season. It is the vine-y place, and Teagan did get lost inside.

And speaking of the Christmas Special, someone had to post this sooner or later!




"A Christmas Carol" meets "It's a Wonderful Life" [IN SPACE!] anyone?

Am loving The Doctor's new tweed jacket, his tumbling out of the fireplace, that frankly magnificent shot of him peering through the window with the TARDIS in the background.

Also, if Matt Smith can seriously control a scene opposite Michael Gambon, then I think everyone may have seriously understated his abilities as an actor. :D



And, as a side note; Playing the Aborted Video-Gaming Fetuses that are "Evacuation Earth" and "Return to Earth" as well as the rather mediocre BBC download games has rekindled my interest in making a Doctor Who fangame. I'm pretty sure others here must have had that urge - and if you have do feel free to drop a line or just reply to this topic. I mean, I have plenty of ideas in how to go about this but my Rather-Crappy-Dalek-Sprites are a clear testament to the fact that I can't do this alone. XD

Let's see what sort of talent we can scare up, and collectively decide how to go from there. ;)

The episode was completely eclipsed by that "Coming Soon" trailer.

So we have:

'Spoilers Sweetie xxx'

I have been a Doctor Who fan since Tom Baker(that should tell you how old i am)
I'm actually happy with Matt Smith, he kinda holds the torch pretty well in my opinion.
I no longer have cable though sadly, so i am missing a LOT.
Everyone has a problem with the new guy each time they change actors, but i don't, i always seem to warm up pretty quickly with the new guy each time, i instantly liked Matt though.. he started off .... very energetic, very um.. off the wall, a bit silly.. but also... very um... wow.. very assertive.. like in the first episode near the end, when the aliens are scanning and it shows him in all his past um.. generations.. and he steps forward and goes "hello, i'm the Doctor" and they just... take right the hell off not even wanting to try and give him a problem.

And twice the Doctor used a gun.. but not on a person.. twice he just used it as a tool to help .. change a situation.. he still never uses them on people, he just uses it when he needs to damage some machinery or something.

I love the series so far with Matt... i'm kinda iffy on the intro theme change is all though.
David was awesome.. i won't disagree.. but.. i think when ever someone hates the new guy, it's just cause they were so used to the other guy it's hard for them to move on.

Strangely I wasn't that imPressed by the new ePisode, it wasn't very well thought out. It was good, and Watchaboe but it wasn't their beat.

I thought it was a lot better than the last couple of specials - mainly because the writing and camerawork were much much more engaging; some of those lines were pure brilliant, and those shots of the Tardis glowing in the background with it's door ajar are the stuff my inner child's dreams are made of. :3

That said, I was pretty disappointed at the characterization of Kazran Sardick - I just couldn't get invested in Adult!Kazran. Mainly it was the fact that all I could see was this unconvincing and illogical step from "Isolated and lonely as child" or "Heartbroken by lost love" to... well...

[SPOILERS MAY FOLLOW. NOT GOING TO TAG IT, BUT SOME PEEPS MIGHT WANT TO AVOID IT]

This is the thing, in the Dicken's story, the final nail that ensures Scrooge becomes a covetous miser is that he wanted to give the girl he loved all he felt she deserved, but missed the fact that she was more interest in him than what he could do for her: when he lost her, he fell into a pattern of hoarding; he rejected love in favour of the material.

Sardick is willing to let four thousand people die out of apathy - he can't be bothered to turn off a machine for about half an hour. There was nothing in his past that justified this - it wasn't a choice for him, it was just apathy. If there had been something about how it would impact him negatively, lost earnings or something from the machine being deactivated, then I would be more convinced... as it stands, he had nothing to gain or lose - and he even told the Doctor this himself, ignoring any bandage the . He was going to let 4000 people die out of sheer apathy: I could only see him as a complete monster. With his rewritten past, I thought he was gearing up to tell the Doctor that he was going to let them die just to spite him for having the audacity to pull such a stunt - but that ultimately fizzled out.

It was, in my opinion, a very disappointing piece of characterization from Moffat who is usually very good at it.



On a lighter note, combining several of the hints, production spoilers and a bit of light-guess work... I think I know who/what River Song is, and who she killed. :3 :specs: :shades: :smoke:
