Happy Anniversary DOCTOR!!!!

Published November 23, 2013 by joscasta

As I’m gearing up to head down to the 42 Lounge to have a few sonic screwdrivers before watching our dear Doctor  take on what looks to be the time war.. I’m just so happy I managed to actually finish this project. I did take a few shortcuts, but alas, I did find something to say about all 102 episodes, since august.

If you must know what I’m wearing.. I found this shirt back in may for 12 bucks.. and though.. I need this for the 50th. It was only 12 bucks.. why not?

time fiction

 

I’m also wearing my sonic screwdriver necklace I bought last christmas, of 9 and 10’s sonic. I’ve never been a big fan of 11’s.. and I like the blue a wee better.

Just to review.. here is the pre-quel..

and it airs at 1:50pm here in my time zone. The bar opens at 11am, but I’m headed down sooner as right now on Facebook, there are a 100 people RSVPing for it. I want my good seat at the bar, thus heading down there early to park and grab a good spot. I’ve tried to remain as spoiler free as possible thus making me happy that they are doing it in simlucast around the world, thus my british friends and I will be watching it at the same time, NO SPOILERS!

To bide time.. go to Google.com, they have this Doctor Who game in honor of the Anniversary.. if you die you “regnerate” I admit it took me at least two complete cycles to finish it. Thanks Google!

Hitting the shower.. then downtown! I might blog later about it, if there is anything good.. and totally noteworthy..

More Than Just the Console Room

Today’s Episode: Journey to the Center of the Tardis

Writer: Steve Thompson

bigger better jouney

One thing I love about this episode is that we get some camera angles that we couldn’t get before, due to how the Tardis was set up. Like the opening scene..

DOCTOR: You said…

CLARA: I know what I said. I was the one who said it.

DOCTOR: You said it was looking at you funny.

CLARA: I was tired. Overwrought. I didn’t mean it. It’s an appliance. It does a job.

DOCTOR: It’s a pretty cool appliance. (taps on console) We’re not talking cheese grater here!

CLARA: You’re not getting me to talk to your ship. That’s properly bonkers.

DOCTOR: (strokes console) It’s OK, it’s OK.

CLARA: You’re like one of those guys who can’t go out with a girl unless his mother approves.

DOCTOR: It’s important to me you get along. I could leave you alone together.

CLARA: Now you’re creeping me out.

During this dialogue, they are walking around the Tardis console, and we are following them, thus allowing the camera to track with them, as with Tennant, you only had certain angles, and the same issue with Eleven’s first Tardis interior.

So, since the Doctor then put the Tardis into “basic” thus shutting down the shields, making the Tardis vunderable to things like the MAGNA GRAB that these brothers had on their ship that they use to scrap things in deep space. They thought the Tardis was just scrap, and grabbed it and shoved it on board.

magna grab

I swear when I saw them using a mallet and some cuttery thingy on the door to the Tardis, I was cringing and freaked out, as that thing is beloved! They are destroying it! Luckily the Doctor got out, and managed to convince the brothers, all three of them to join him for the salvage of a lifetime since poor Clara was still on board. So they all went in, even Tricky, the Android!

Thus the Doctor then, once inside, basically was like.. yeah, she’s big. Imagine the biggest ship in your mind’s eye, now forget that since this ship is infinite!

Then he launches into his madman speech..

GREGOR: It could take you hours to find the girl.

DOCTOR: Days! Plus the whole place is toxic. She could be dead by the time I reach her. So. Here’s the mission. We’re going to find her in one hour.

GREGOR: We?

DOCTOR: You’re my guys for this.

GREGOR: That wasn’t the deal.

DOCTOR: ‘Tis now.

GREGOR: What makes you think we’ll help?

The DOCTOR flips two levers and a countdown starts on the screen.

DOCTOR: I just activated the TARDIS self-destruct system. One hour until this ship blows.

BRAM runs for the door but it slams shut.

DOCTOR: Don’t try to leave. The TARDIS is in lockdown. I’ll open those doors when Clara’s by my side.

BRAM: You crazy lunatic!

DOCTOR: (turns on BRAM) My ship, my rules!

GREGOR:
You’ll kill us all. And the girl.

DOCTOR: She’s going to die if you don’t help me. Don’t get into a spaceship with a madman.

The men run to the door to try and force it open.

DOCTOR: Didn’t anyone ever teach you that? OK. A little gentle persuasion. Say 30 minutes.

The DOCTOR flicks some switches and presses a button. The countdown changes to 30 minutes.

BRAM: She’ll die even quicker now!

DOCTOR: We all perform better under pressure. Anybody want to go for 15 minutes? (his finger hovers over the button)

BRAM: Whoa!

GREGOR: Whoa!

DOCTOR: It’s your own time you’re wasting. Salvage of a lifetime. You meant the ship. I meant Clara.

So, poor Clara is wandering around the Tardis, while being chased by these zombie things, and walks into this awesome room, and the first thing we see is the Doctor’s Cot from “A Good Man Goes to War”, then she picks up Amy’s Tardis, “Eleventh Hour” and then Donna’s magnifying glass, “Unicorn and the Wasp”, and of course Six’s umbrella. Before the time zombies come at her, where she escapes and passes the Observatory that reminds you of “Tooth and Claw”, and the Pool, which kinda looks like the Pool that Donna lounged around during “Midnight”. She finally ends up in the Library, where she spots a book. Not just any book…

Doctor Who - Series 7B

Honestly, I’m curious to know who wrote it? The Doctor himself or River? She opens it and reads something, and makes a small remark about the Doctor’s name before she hears the time zombies and hides under the liquid Gallifreyian Encyclopedia that spills out!

The Doctor and gang split up, deciding that might be the best way to find Clara. Bram heads back to the console room and begins ripping apart the Tardis. By doing so, time is leaking out there and we hear some voices..

Gregor is walking by a room and notices that his value detector says, ANYTHING YOU WANT IS IN THIS ROOM! Thus he goes in to find this..

tree

Wow! So apparently, the doctor comes charging in, with Tricky, and we learn that those eggy things can make anything you want, a machine making a machine. The Doctor advises against taking one, but Gregor does anyway, and when she takes away the Door to the room, he tries to explode the room, so she gives them back the door, but sticks them in a maze instead with the time zombies.

Bram then gets killed by one of the time zombies underneath the console, and the Doctor and his gang realize that time zombies can kill

Clara ends up wandering around  and finds the console room, but an echo of it. After Tricky forces Gregor to give up the egg, they all end up there too. Luckily using the device that Gregor has to detect stuff and the sonic, the Doctor pulls Clara into their version of the room.

Where Amy would have hugged the Doctor in thanks, Clara…

The DOCTOR puts the sonic into his other hand and pulls CLARA free. She screams as he holds her. She pulls away and spins around, taking deep breaths.

DOCTOR: It’s all right. Clara, I’m so, so sorry. Please, please forgive me…

CLARA punches him in the shoulder and walks away.

DOCTOR: Ow! (rubs shoulder) OK, so we’re not doing hugging, I get that now.

CLARA: What do you keep in here?! Why have you got zombie creatures? Good guys do not have zombie creatures. Rule one. (hits him again) Basic storytelling.

So the guys were like, yay! Turn off the self destruct, when the Doctor was like, it was never on, everythings fine, before he looked, and saw that in fact the Tardis is exploding, thus requiring them to go into the bowels of the Tardis.

Sadly the time zombies follow them, and lo, the fuel cells run out of fuel, thus making the rods warp and all of a sudden poles are flying everywhere. One hits Tricky and Gregor is forced to tell him he isn’t an android, thus can feel pain, ect, he just has artificial eyes and voice box and amnesia so he doesn’t remember his childhood at all. Thus his brothers played a joke on him that he’s an android.  Poor dude.

So we then end up in the room where the eye of harmony, is held where we have an exploding star..

eye of harmony

WOW. Then the zombies catch up, and kill off the brothers allowing Clara and the Doctor to escape to the engine room, where we see a cliff. So the Doctor realizes they are about to die, and asks her this..

CLARA: We’re outside.

DOCTOR: No, we’re still in the TARDIS.

CLARA: There’s no way across.

DOCTOR: No. OK, you’re right.

CLARA: So what do we do? Time for a plan. Do you have a plan?

DOCTOR: Well, no. No plan, sorry.

CLARA: If you don’t have a plan, we’re dead!

DOCTOR: Yes, we are. So just tell me.

CLARA: Tell you what?

DOCTOR: Well, there’s no point now, we’re about to die, so just tell me who you are.

CLARA: You know who I am.

DOCTOR: No, I don’t! I look at you every single day, and I don’t understand a thing about you. Why do I keep running into you? (heads for the door)

CLARA: Doctor, you invited me – you said…

DOCTOR: (walks back) Before that. I met you in the Dalek Asylum. There was a girl in a shipwreck, and she died saving my life. And she was you.

CLARA: She really wasn’t.

DOCTOR: Victorian London. There was a governess who was a barmaid, and we fought the Great Intelligence together, she died, and it was my fault – and she was you.

CLARA: You’re scaring me.

DOCTOR: What are you, eh? Are you a trick, a trap?

CLARA: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

CLARA backs away from the DOCTOR and almost falls off the ledge. The DOCTOR grips her in a huge hug. She grips him back and gasps.

DOCTOR: All right. All right. (ends the hug) You really don’t, do you?

CLARA: I think I’m more scared of you right now than anything else on that TARDIS.

DOCTOR: You’re just Clara, aren’t you?

pinch

So they jump and come upon this..

heart of the Tardis

The poor Doctor is flummoxed. He has no idea what to do next. The Tardis has saved him, but at the moment he has no idea how to save her. He then feels the burns on her hands, and looks at it, as it spells out… “BIG FRIENDLY BUTTON”

kiss

He then realizes that there is a rip in time he can fix thus “resetting” the day, and tells Clara, even after she says that she knows his name due to the book, that she will have forgotten everything about this day, even all the info he told her about the times he met her before. Then he goes through the rift, and manages to do exactly what he said… and BAM, same day, but nothing big and explodey happened.

Now a few pictures of the stuff that Clara found…

Such a fun episode, as this is the first time we’ve seen a room in the console beyond the wardrobe in NuWho, and that was Season 2, the first episode!

Till Tomorrow folks, we go back to the Victorian Era with the Paternose Gang!

Neil Gaiman plays God

Today’s Episode:  The Doctor’s Wife

Writer: Neil Gaiman

Now the first time I saw this episode, I thought, WOW that’s a great episode. Then later when I found out that Neil Gaiman wrote it, I was totally unaware of him. I had seen this film..

coraline

Which I thought was an amazing movie. He wrote the book that this film was based on. He also wrote this book too.. that I’m in the middle of, (I admit I’m in the middle of three other books as well..)

American Gods

I heard they are making a movie out of that too.

Neil has been a Whovian since the Tom Baker era, being a Brit, thus he was delighted when he got asked to write for the show. He said writing for the show was like playing God, because whatever he wrote, the Doctor would say!

So he added a ton of mythology to this episode,

  • Time Lords can change sex when they regerate, as the Corsair did..
  • There is a Squash Court 7, makes one wonder about squash court 6
  • The Tardis doesn’t nessisarily take the Doctor and his strays where he wants to go, but he does take them where they need to go.
  • The Tardis can archive rooms that haven’t happened yet.
  • Amy and Rory sleep on bunkbeds in the Tardis, and the Doctor doesn’t see a problem with it.
  • Timelords can send distress calls out, when needed.

There were so many good parts to this episode, but this really highlighted everything..

Amy meets the Tardis

Also, This is the best conversation between the Doctor and the Tardis, which explains why she says she’s “Sexy”.

Sexy

I also noticed that he did this..

face slap

I’ve heard it’s because that hand is newer than the rest of his body, due it being cut off way back in Christmas Invasion, as you recall, it’s a fighting hand, and the Doctor just said before the slap he has no idea what to do.

The Amy/Rory parts where a wee boring, especially with Rory ‘dying’ again. I just want to yell at Moffat to quit turning him into Kenny.

Another great line was said by Amy right at the end that really sums up the whole point of Doctor Who..

“Look at you pair, its always you and her isn’t it? Long after the rest of us are gone. The boy and his box off to see the universe”

Doctor working on the Tardis

Till tomorrow.. the worst episode of this season.

10’s Song Has Ended But The Story Never Ends

Today’s Episode:  End of Time Part II

Writer: Russell T. Davies

So, we were left with a cliffhanger of the entire earth being the Master, except for Donna, the Doctor, Wilf and the cacti.

Donna uses some type of mind defense and makes herself pass out. The Cacti decide then to rescue the Doctor and transport him and Wilf onto the spaceship. I feel bad for Tennant during the stair scene, as he had major back surgery as he was injured doing Hamlet, thus strapped into a chair and going down those stairs? Those screams of pain were real!

Anyway, back onto the spaceship.. the Doctor uses his sonic to pretty much dismantle all systems.. so they are just stuck there floating in space, since the Master can use nuclear warheads on them.

Thus this remarkable conversation follows between Wilf and the Doctor..

WILF: Aye, aye. Got this old tub mended?
DOCTOR: Just trying to fix the heating.
WILF: Oh. I’ve always dreamt of a view like that. Hee, hee. I’m an astronaut. It’s dawn over England, look. Brand new day. My wife’s buried down there. I might never visit her again now. Do you think he changed them, in their graves?

DOCTOR: I’m sorry.

WILF: No, not your fault.

DOCTOR: Isn’t it?

WILF: Oh, 1948, I was over there. End of the Mandate in Palestine. Private Mott. Skinny little idiot, I was. Stood on this rooftop, in the middle of a skirmish. It was like a blizzard, all them bullets in the air. The world gone mad. Yeah, you don’t want to listen to an old man’s tales, do you?

DOCTOR: I’m older than you.

WILF: Get away.

DOCTOR: I’m nine hundred and six.

WILF: What, really, though?

DOCTOR: Yeah.

WILF: Nine hundred years. We must look like insects to you.

DOCTOR: I think you look like giants. 

WILF: Listen, I, I want you to have this. I’ve kept it all this time, and I thought

(Wilf offers his revolver to the Doctor.)

DOCTOR: No.

WILF: No, but if you take it, you could

DOCTOR: No. You had that gun in the mansion. You could have shot the Master there and then.

WILF: Too scared, I suppose.

DOCTOR: I’d be proud.

WILF: Of what?

DOCTOR: If you were my dad.

WILF: Oh, come on, don’t start. But you said, you were told he will knock four times and then you die. Well, that’s him, isn’t it? The Master. That noise in his head? The Master is going to kill you.

DOCTOR: Yeah.

WILF: Then kill him first.

DOCTOR: And that’s how the Master started. It’s not like I’m an innocent. I’ve taken lives. I got worse. I got clever. Manipulated people into taking their own. Sometimes I think a Time Lord lives too long. I can’t. I just can’t.

WILF: If the Master dies, what happens to all the people?

DOCTOR: I don’t know.

WILF: Doctor, what happens?

DOCTOR: The template snaps.

WILF: What, they go back to being human? They’re alive, and human. Then don’t you dare, sir. Don’t you dare put him before them. Now you take this. That’s an order, Doctor. Take the gun. You take the gun and save your life. And please don’t die. You’re the most wonderful man and I don’t want you to die.

DOCTOR: Never.

Then the Doctor takes the gun, once he learned from the Master that a 10 point star arrived on earth, and he realizes that it can only come from Gallifrey. He figures out that the Time Lords want OUT of the time lock that he placed them in. He gets the spaceship back up and running…

End of Time ALLONS_Y!!!!

Then he has Wilf manage the lasers to deal with the missiles headed toward them. It’s so fun watching an old man shooting guns like a kid! Then the Doctor jumps off the spaceship back into the Mansion. At this point, the Time Lords have emerged and are talking to the Master. They change all of the Master Race back into the Human Race, thus freaking out all the humans, especially now that Gallifrey is visible in the sky next to the Earth!.

Wilfred meanwhile manages to get the cacti to land the ship, and hurries into the Mansion and takes over the nuclear machine in the room, saving the two guys inside.

The final skirmish begins between the Doctor and the Master and the Time Lords. The Doctor pulls out his gun and is about to shoot the Leader of the Time Lords, but then points the gun back at the Master. He then points the gun back at the Time Lords, and sees the woman that Wilfred has been talking to… and then points the gun back at the Master and yells at him to move… and shoots the star.. thus flinging Gallifrey back into the time lock along with the Master whom is hellbent on killing them for starting the drumming in his head.

During this.. he gets blasted back.. and realizes.. he’s still ALIVE!! YAY!!

 Then *tap tap tap tap*…  The Doctor then notices Wilf is still in the nuclear glass case off to the side of the room… 

WILF: They gone, then? Yeah, good-o. If you could let me out?

DOCTOR: Yeah.

WILF: Only, this thing seems to be making a bit of a noise.

DOCTOR: The Master left the Nuclear Bolt running. It’s gone into overload.

WILF: And that’s bad, is it?

DOCTOR: No, because all the excess radiation gets vented inside there. Vinvocci glass contains it. All five hundred thousand rads, about to flood that thing.

WILF: Oh. Well, you’d better let me out, then.

DOCTOR: Except it’s gone critical. Touch one control and it floods. Even this would set it off.

(The sonic screwdriver.)

WILF: I’m sorry.

DOCTOR: Sure.

WILF: Look, just leave me.

DOCTOR: Okay, right then, I will. Because you had to go in there, didn’t you? You had to go and get stuck, oh yes. Because that’s who you are, Wilfred. You were always this. Waiting for me all this time.

WILF: No really, just leave me. I’m an old man, Doctor. I’ve had my time.

DOCTOR: Well, exactly. Look at you. Not remotely important. But me? I could do so much more. So much more! But this is what I get. My reward. And it’s not fair! Oh. Oh. I’ve lived too long.

WILF: No. No, no, please, please don’t. No, don’t! Please don’t! Please!

DOCTOR: Wilfred, it’s my honour. Better be quick. Three, two, one.

(The Doctor quickly goes into the open booth and unlocks Wilf’s side. Wilf runs out and red light floods the Doctor’s booth. It hurts a lot. The Doctor curls up into a ball. Then the power shuts down. After a few moments, the Doctor gets up.)

WILF: What? Hello.

DOCTOR: Hi.

WILF: Still with us?

DOCTOR: The system’s dead. I absorbed it all. Whole thing’s kaput. Oh. Now it opens, yeah.

(The Doctor comes out of the booth.)

WILF: Well, there we are, then. Safe and sound. Mind you, you’re in hell of a state. You’ve got some battle scars there.

(The Doctor rubs his face and the cuts vanish.)

WILF: But they’ve. Your face. How did you do that?

DOCTOR: It’s started.

(Wilf hugs the Doctor.)

tumblr_m02f5dC1Fs1ql486g

He takes Wilf back home, and says this is NOT the last time they will see each other.

The Doctor then decides to pay a visit to each of his former companions..

1.)  Mickey and Martha apparently get married, and he saves their lives by hitting a Soltaran in that one place on the back of their noggin.

2.)  He saves Clyde’s life.. and waves goodbye to Sarah Jane again.

3.)  Then he shows up at some bar in the future, and has the barkeep hand Jack a note, letting him know that the guy next to him.. his name is Alonzo. Yup.. the Midshipman from the Titanic! Then yet again waves goodbye.

4.)  Remember that diary he wrote in Human Nature/Family of Blood? Well the woman’s granddaughter published it. He meets her and has her sign the book.

5.)  He goes to Donna’s wedding, but just speaks with Wilf and Sylvia, and gives them a lottery ticket.. and when Donna gets it, she says its Triple Rollover… who knows!

6.)  Since this episode occurs on New Year’s its only appropriate that he says goodbye to Rose before she met him.. New Year’s 2005… as Rose  was aired that spring.

Then he sees and Ood, and they sing to him to give him the strength he needs to get back into the Tardis, and he launches it off away from the Earth has he has held on for so long.. thus the radiation and the regeneration energy explodes out from him..

Don't want to go.

Thus.. we say goodbye to 10.

Tennant didn’t want to leave, but it seemed appropriate, as RTD and Julie, the other executive producer was also leaving. Changing of the guard it seems! So I give you a few youtube videos..

David Tennant’s final words..

David Tennant being funny…

And Finally the BEST VIDEO EVER…. THE 500 MILES !!!

Till tomorrow.. we get a hint about 11th Doctor and what he might be like..

P.S. Am I the only one that finds it interesting that David Tennant named his son Wilfred? After the Character that “killed” his doctor?

Ten finally meets an Alonso!

Today’s Episode: Voyages of the Damned

Writer: Russell T. Davies

Woot! 42 Episodes in!!

This is the strangest episode of all the Christmas Specials that we have. The whole cyborg and the Max thing was crazy. The good parts of episode where

1.)     Note the newspaper man we met. He seemed cool.

2.)     This is the THIRD time we have seen Ten in a tux..

  1. The parallel universe with Rose, at the party  at her “parent’s” estate
  2. Lazarus Project
  3. Now

i.      Every time he wears that tux, people die. He should burn it.

3.)     The tour guide and his zany knowledge of Earth kept me laughing.. I’m happy he lived.

4.)     This awesome speech..

The Doctor: Okay, okay. Tch, tch. First things first. One: we’re going to climb through this ship. B… no… two: we’re going to reach the bridge. Three – or C: we’re going to save the Titanic. And, coming in a very low Four or D or that little “iv” in brackets they use in footnotes… why. Right then, follow me.

Slade: Hang on a minute. Who put you in charge and who the hell are you anyway?

The Doctor: I’m the Doctor. I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I am 903 years old and I’m the man who’s gonna save your lives, and all six billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?

5.)    The BEST THING was this exchange…

Today’s Episode: Utopia

Writer: Russell T. Davies

Jack Harkness.. how I have missed thee. No really.. its been to flipping long! I hate how the Tardis deals with Jack.. going all the way to the end of time to shake him off. Silly girl, you even gave Martha a fright, which Jack makes up for it by flirting with her..

tumblr_mt1rz5Y05P1qdgl9ho1_250

Now once they arrive on this silly planet.. John Barrowman explains how the running around on set goes..

running on utopia

They arrive in the Silo, meet the Professor, and try to get a clue about Utopia, as the Professor is astonished that they have no clue about, thus the Doctor’s response is quite smart in fact..

Utopia

They manage to get the rocket going to UTOPIA during which Jack and the Doc have a VERY LONG conversation about what Jack is. Meanwhile Martha figures out the Professor is a Time Lord, and is not a friendly one.

Thus the Tardis is stolen by the Professor, Martha, Jack and the Doctor are stranded at the end of the Universe. Not good… not good at all.

At least Jack tries to take off his clothes..

Today’s Episode: Family of Blood

Writer: Paul Cornell

This is one of those great episdoes where Tennant brings the FEELS on. He just does a wonderful job, of showing how difficult it is to be Human, to stand by and watch events take place around him, rather than to take control, which is what Time Lords do.

Tim Latimer sums up what a Time Lord is.. that makes you stop and think…

LATIMER: Because…I’ve seen him. He’s…like fire and ice and rage. He’s like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun.

THE DOCTOR: Stop it.

LATIMER: He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and he can see the turn of the universe.

THE DOCTOR: Stop! I said stop it.

LATIMER: And he’s wonderful.

All thought this scene, Tennant is just bawling, giving us this amazing acting, as John Smith has to die for the Time Lord to come back. We really see John Smith there.. not the Doctor, as he doesn’t want to die..

family of blood

That sequence of what would happen if John and Joan did get together and did live a happy life… its just not meant to happen, as World War I is just on the horizon, and the Family of Blood would destroy everything to get at the Time Lord.

Then we have this awesome sequence as to what he does with the Family… as they wanted to live forever..

BAINES: (v.o.) He never raised his voice. That was the worst thing. The fury of the Time Lord. And then we discovered why. Why this Doctor, who had fought with gods and demons, why he’d run away from us and hidden–he was being kind.

Shot of CLARK screaming, bound in thick metal chains. The THE DOCTOR is standing behind him, unmoved.

BAINES: (v.o.) He wrapped my father in unbreakable chains, forged in the heart of a dwarf star.

JENNY, the TARDIS doors open behind her, is being pulled backwards out of the ship.

BAINES: (v.o.) He tricked my mother into the event horizon of a collapsing galaxy to be imprisoned there…forever.

The THE DOCTOR watches coldly, no emotion on his face.

BAINES: (v.o.) He still visits my little sister once a year every year.

The Doctor looks into an ornate mirror where a door is cracked open and LUCY peers out.

BAINES: (v.o.) I wonder if one day he might forgive her, but there she is–can you see? He trapped her inside a mirror, every mirror. If ever you look at your reflection and see something move behind you, just for a second, that’s her. That’s always her.

BAINES is dressed as a scarecrow out in a field.

BAINES: (v.o.) As for me, I was suspended in time. And the Doctor put me to work…

The THE DOCTOR places the hood over his head.

BAINES: (v.o.) …standing over the fields of England…as their protector.

The THE DOCTOR walks away.

BAINES: (v.o.) We wanted to live forever, so the Doctor made sure that we did.

Its just heartbreaking, after the Doctor meets up with Joan again after dealing with the family, She just flat out says “no” when asked to be a companion, which is understandable as she has to stay behind and clean up the mess he made when he came.

Martha and the Doctor do have a massively awkward conversation, about their “relationship”, its a wee bit like how Rose dealt with 10 after the Girl in the Fireplace, they just agreed to keep traveling.. not acknowledging any feelings. 10 is still rebounding from Rose, and now he’s in a way also rebounding from Joan too. I just feel so bad for Martha, getting the short end of the stick all the time.

Till Tomorrow… BLINK!!!! 😉
