But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
If you ever feel down and/or lack of self confidence : remember that you are unique in the universe.
Scenes like this is why I love Doctor Who.
Just a, you know, casual reminder.
The Doctor found your blog!
Hello- yes- sorry! Didn’t mean to surprise you, just a bit of a non-routine routine… checkarooni. Oh… no, not checkarooni. What in the blazes is a checkarooni? Really, Doctor.
But no! Truly, there’s nothing to worry about. Just a bit of a —follow-up, yes, a follow-up, after that whole situation with the Wi-Fi. If you’re wondering, you are A-OK. I think, just one more quick—…… ah, yes. No residual, soul-sucking hotspots here. Relax, and- and… keep on scrolling.
Oh, and if you happen to see a fish on your monitors… don’t be alarmed. He’s microchip-encapsulated, called Barnaby. I had him on the TARDIS monitors and then he just went swimming off into the Wi-Fi. If you see him, just, you know, shoo him in the general direction of my when-and-where.
(Okay, so less of a follow-up-with-the-Wi-Fi, more of a I’ve-lost-my-bio-fibre-optic-fish… but I digress!)
However lost you might feel, you'll never really be lost.
Doctor Who finale prequel starring Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman to screen via BBC Red Button | Radio Times
Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman will star in a special mini episode of Doctor Who – a prequel to the series seven finale – available to watch via the BBC’s interactive (UK-only) Red Button service.
Shot in a dreamlike style and set in a dusty old museum, He Said, She Said will see the Doctor and companion Clara talking directly to camera as they reflect on how little they really know about one another.
The three-minute prequel will first become available to watch following the penultimate episode of Doctor Who series seven on Saturday 11 May. Viewers will be able to access it between 7:40pm and 12 midnight by pressing the red button on their remote controls and selecting Doctor Who. They can then watch it again each evening right up until the final episode airs on Saturday 18 May on BBC1 – and the Doctor and Clara’s secrets are finally revealed…
It’s times like these I wish I lived in the UK. :/
Update: The clip will also be available outside of the UK via the BBC America YouTube channel.
We’ll post it to this blog as soon as it goes live.
John and Hank will be THE DOCTOR and THE MASTER.
TELL ME SOMEONE ELSE THINKS THIS IS BRILLIANT AND HILARIOUS.
it’s time for a round of make john green find the thing
I’ll destroy this useless heart
I’ll fuck it up so it’ll never beat again
Not just for me but for anyone
He’s waited so long. In the dark. And the cold. And the diamonds. Until you came. Bodies so hot. With blood. And pain.
This is, literally, one of the best episodes in new Who. Everything about it was so smartly written. I know when we think of creep factor in DW, we tend to always think of Moffat, but this was one of the few non-Moffat antagonists that seriously scared the shit out of me.This thing is ancient…it had been there for who knows how long, just waiting, biding its time. Who knows how many identities it has stolen in its life time…and it’s so powerful it could even “steal the voice” of a Time Lord.
Mind you, not only does this thing “steal someone’s voice”, it shows a clear capability to actually learn. This thing is learning as the episode progresses, creating a sync with whatever organism it encounters while it learns to mimic it, and mimic its thoughts, and possibly learn to think like said organism at a quicker speed. This creature, literally, became the Doctor for a brief moment and began to think faster than him.
There’s never even an explanation of what this thing is. You never even get to see it. It’s this entity, this thing. I can’t begin to explain how fucking brilliant this episode was. People can hate RTD all they want, but this episode was masterful. I’d say this thing, which is never even named, stands as probably the absolute fucking creepiest antagonist in the new series, followed really closely by the Silence and the ancient entity in The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.
There are also a lot of complaints about the way Davis writes the 10th Doctor and how arrogant he is, and I think this is one of the few episodes where his arrogance nearly gets him killed. This thing only took over his voice because he just had to tell everyone in the room how clever he was.
This isn’t even taking into account that the entire episode was told in one set. They never leave the shuttle bus It was nerve wrecking, and a brilliant decision. This is one of the reasons why I think series four of new Who is one of the absolute best in the new series overall.
ironically enough, this was a scrapped idea from the old series. It’s so cool.
But wasn’t Midnight written by Moffat?
a) where on earth did you read that this was a scrapped classic who idea, RTD created it last minute to replace a script he didn’t like
b) lol moffat wishes he wrote midnight, he could never
