Today’s Episode: Fear Her
Writer: I hate this episode so much… I blame RTD for it.. though he didn’t write it.
This episode has only 5 good points to it, and none of it relates to the actual storyline.
The first, the Doctor’s horrible parking of the Tardis (click for full gif.. its a long one.. )
Second, Fingers on lips…
Third, fingers in jars.. (again click.. its not as long but wordpress being stupid)
Fourthly, this great quote:
“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.”
Finally, this great scene with the edible ball bearings.
The worst part is that in 2012 Tennant didn’t carry the torch.. Matt Smith did!!!! Thus.. really bad planning on the Olympic Committee’s part! They re-wrote the timeline!
Alas, not to worry as some people cosplayed Ten and Rose at the opening ceremony..
Now.. the Episode we should have gotten should have been this.. according to a Mr. Stephen Fry… who wrote it.
“Sub-Arthurian legend of [Sir] Gawain and the Green Knight”, or “Gavin” as Fry playfully refers to him as, conjecturing that Gavin would be the modern form of the name Gawain. In the original legend, “It describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious “Green Knight” who challenges any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day. Gawain accepts and beheads him with his blow, at which the Green Knight stands up, picks up his head and reminds Gawain of the appointed time. In his struggles to keep his bargain Gawain demonstrates chivalry and loyalty until his honour is called into question by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight’s castle.”.
Doesn’t that sound better than the crap we got? The “monster” scared by the stupid song? I wanted to poke my eyes out after watching this crap. I wish they could have made the Stone Rose even instead of this crap, if you haven’t read that book thus far.. go read it. Its a great fun romp!
Well only two episodes left in the Rose/Ten era… getting the tissues ready..
