The Telegraph had an exclusive Christmas Doctor Who story on Saturday. The text can be found here, but as it only has one of the three pictures, I thought I'd post these scans.

Having watched Time Crash three times now, my reaction has not yet progressed beyond *SQUEEEEEEEetc*

My mum warned me that it would probably be rubbish, but as I said, I absolutely love multi-Doctor stories and will adore anything that qualifies. Plot is secondary.


And yes, the icon is of the wrong two, but still rather appropriate!

Excuse me, but WTF was that supposed to be??? )

In my opinion, this is probably the worst episode out of three years worth of New Who.

Two great/good episodes culminating in this. What a disappointment.

Well, I really don't have much to say about The Sound of Drums.

Spoilers, I suppose, although I discuss a couple of concepts from the episode rather than the episode itself )

I'm not sure whether to call this a review. I think not.

ETA: Looking through flist- woe is me, this must be 'fannish disconnect'. Hopefully I will appreciate it more on a second viewing minus family.

In which I ramble incoherently and make no chronological sense.

Here be spoilers )
agapi42: Livia from I, Claudius (Default)
A random thought that just came to me while watching Greeks Bearing Gifts: isn’t Torchwood Jack a bit like the Doctor?

They both have mysterious pasts that their companions don’t know about.
For example, the Time War dominates the Doctor’s recent-ish history, whereas with Jack, it’s being brought back to life by Bad Wolf.

They’re both alone, and set apart from everyone else by something unique to them.
With the Doctor it’s the whole thing about being the Last Time Lord: he will outlive everyone and no one can really understand him.
With Jack, it’s almost the same thing: he can’t die so can he really be said to be human? Instead of losing his race, he’s lost his identity as a member of that race.

These things that differentiate them also define their characters.
The Doctor, post Time War, is a much darker character than any pre Time War Doctor had the capacity to be. He still has his lighter side, but you can be reminded at any time that this is a man who has seen his entire race die, most probably at his own hand.
Torchwood Jack is a very different man to flirty con man Jack. The Jack who travelled with the Doctor still had a dark past, (Time Agency, memories stolen etc.) but he was a much lighter character on the surface. With Torchwood Jack, the darkness is always much closer to the surface.

In Torchwood, the Torchwood team play the role of companions. And I think Jack loves them in the same way the Doctor loves his companions. He loves them all, but not really in the sense we understand the word. His relationship with Ianto could be seen to parallel the Doctor’s relationship with Rose. There’s no doubt that he cares deeply for him, but he does have more important concerns.

I think the Tenth Doctor and Jack dynamic could be very interesting: it could be seen as mirroring the Ninth Doctor and Jack. With the Ninth Doctor and Jack, the Ninth Doctor is the man with the darker personality, who has not yet healed and Jack has a dark past, but has a lighter personality whereas with the Tenth Doctor and Jack, these positions may be reversed.

So, anyway, this might not make much sense but that’s what I thought.

Ten minutes until Series Three of Doctor Who starts...
I'm calm.


Really calm.


I think.

Oh, I give up...

As I seem to have fallen into the habit of keeping a record of my posts to various communities in my journal, here are my first wallpapers. Or at least the versions that I'm not ashamed to post.

This are my first attempts at graphics work of any kind. I have made several attempts to post these, hopefully this is correct. All text on the Ian/Barbara wallpapers are taken from the song Atlantic by Keane because I love the song. The text on the other wallpaper is taken from the poem For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon. Please give me suggestions on how to improve.
