    I don’t get why  Rose/1o   irritated any one and River/11/12 didn’t?

    i think it did grate on a few, especially as river hung around far longer than rose. but for the most part, i believe everyone was simply used to the romantic side of the doctor by then, because of the thing with rose.

    in my headcanon, 10 was still emotionally closed…[Read more]

    Perhaps he might have some unconscious control- there was a suggestion that his current form was unconsciously chosen. However, at present, he’s struggling with the prospect of repeated change to who he is, and him deliberately choosing to depart even further from his current identity doesn’t seem to sit that well with that. Per…[Read more]

    actually, he broke it in ‘oxygen,’ didn’t he?

     

    also, i predict the new doctor will choose the more stylistic (and functional) sonic fountain pen…

    i’ve only now caught up with all the discussion here, and would like to thank everyone for a very lively one, at the least! but especially @thane15 , you have a way with words that i wish i’d had when i was 15… or even 35.  🙂

    i can only add one thing, to try to help those very passionate fans who are upset with the direction the…[Read more]

  • fantastic news!

    i don’t feel too bad for all the others who were passed over for the part, as i’m sure they’ll find other roles for themselves. part of the fun of watching the show is seeing how the new doctor wins over everyone (here, at least). but it won’t be difficult for jodie to do so, i’m already firmly in her corner, hoping that she gets…[Read more]

    @brewski @janetteb

    at the very least, perhaps the doctor will find out where exactly susan is, in his current time stream, and it can be like the finding gallifrey theme from a couple of series ago? something for chibnall to tackle in a loose arc, or even a doctor’s quest sort of thing, next series? i could go for that… if she’s not featured in…[Read more]

    really loved this, a nice wrap-up for all the cast. it didn’t feel as epic as previous moff finales, but i guess that’s because he’s not steering the show into the next series, and there was only the need to finish up the story threads and character arcs from this year?

    over on reddit, someone thought that perhaps missy was letting the doctor…[Read more]

    @nerys

    My husband and I were trying to figure out how there could be two of them (same way we got multiple Doctors in The Day of the Doctor).

    in ‘tDotD’ it was the involvement of the Moment, a force/source of great power, that allowed all the doctors to interact, so i’m guessing any “great force” can overcome the blinovitch limitation effect……[Read more]

    i love the beard, too, but was also grinning madly when it (finally) dawned on me that he was razor, in disguise the whole time! that gave it such an old who vibe…

    also made me wonder if his chosen name was “the master… of disguises!” and he’s just shortened it since? LOL

    “avoiding something else” I can only think that this is his regeneration.

    i had a thought that perhaps he nose about his coming regeneration, because he had a peek into river’s diary? “a thing happened.” and so he’s suffering from existential dread, knowing it’s coming…

    5000 Romans of the 9th Legion defeated an army of 30,000 Picts – according to the Romans.  It was on their journey back south from this battle that the 9th seems to have disappeared.

    when i read this, my gut reaction was “simple propaganda.” most likely the picts defeated the romans, but the leaders back home couldn’t report that, so…[Read more]

    I repeat. Bill’s phone ringtone could be of some significance. (see post 58281)

    what a brilliant catch! i checked ‘the pilot,’ and bill’s ringtone is the same there (when she gets a call from her stepmum)… so is this series dovetailing with the harold saxon storyline, somehow?! could bill’s mum be one of martha’s sisters? wow, i wi…[Read more]

    And then the Doctor’s sight is restored remotely, using essentially godlike powers. I’ll avoid using that three-letter acronym, to avoid raising hackles, and just settle for the innuendo in calling it “godlike”.

    that scene would have made more sense, had they simply used the light from the pyramid to bathe the doctor in a healing…[Read more]

  • so, any classical lit people care to ponder on whether/how the monks’ brightly lit cables are inspired by the greek fates, and their loom of life? it was the first thing i thought of, since the monks use those cables to “read” the future…
