"The Eleventh Hour" re-watched

Alright, here I am again and I really hoped you missed me a bit. Maybe just a little, little bit?
Well, due to no TV the last two days I re-watched some Doctor Who episodes on my computer including the episode "The Eleventh Hour" which was the first real episode with Matt Smith as the Doctor. I just noticed some things there which I wanted to share with you.
  • This is the first time we hear something about the Silence. They made this big fuss about the Silence in series 5 but where are they now. We had them in the first two episodes of series 6 but now they aren't even mentioned. This is also something about which the guys from the Cloister Room talk about in their newest podcast. Check it out.
  • I had totally forgotten that the Doctor calls the Tardis "you sexy thing" in this episode.
  • I always wondered what he tells little Amy when he travels back after prisoner zero is gone.
  • From whom has he stolen these clothes?
  • Why are there no ducks on the duckpond?
 I think that was all I had on mind after watching this episode again. Feel free to comment on anything.

Ninth Doctor and Rose Wallpaper

I won't be online for one or two days so you'll get a wallpaper to kill the time. This is a quite old one of the Ninth Doctor and Rose when I started to make wallpapers.

Doctor Who Music

Music plays a big part in Doctor Who and makes the episodes much more interesting. Can you imagine an episode of Doctor Who without music?
It's really cool I think when you can spot some music you already know, like the Doctor's theme or the themes of his companions. My all time favourite of the companion's themes is still Martha's. I can't say why but I really love it.
The theme for Donna fits perfectly and the one for Rose is really beautiful. I can't remember Amy's right now but I think I like that one, too. Is there a theme for River? I don't know but I think she would deserve her own music.
I'm still in love with the Tenth Doctor's theme and the song about Gallifrey. By the way the song for Captain Jack from Torchwood is great as well.
The episodes of Doctor Who would be missing something without the music. Sometimes you can understand a scene just because of the music and you always know if it's dangerous or funny or something else. The music is just beautiful, also without seeing the episode where it is in and I can listen to it quite often without getting bored.

Some videos

Today I have some videos made by BrianRimmer for you. The first one is a compilation of all the regenerations of the Doctor and the second video shows the companions and friends the Doctor had over the years. When you want to see more videos of BrianRimmer head over to his YouTube channel. Happy watching.

Doctor Who Merchandise

Do you have any Doctor Who merchandise?
I don't have anything but I also don't have any DVDs, yet, because you can't buy them in a shop in Germany. Well, you can buy the first to series but I think I want the UK versions so I have to order them online. Most of the time I think about buying DVD boxes of TV shows for a long time because they aren't that cheap. I still have an eye on this Doctor Who box where you get series 1-4 together.
I have heard most of the Doctor Who and Torchwood music online but maybe I will buy the CDs someday. I'm a big fan of film music. I think my favourite character melody is still Martha's and I like the theme for David Tennant's Doctor.
I don't know if I would buy the toys which you can get. I guess I would like to have a sonic screwdriver or sonic lipstic which are working in reality but I don't need action figures and stuff like that.
I guess I would buy some of the books when I come across them because I love books.

Letters to the Doctor III

Today I have another letter to the Doctor from one of his companions. It all came out of my mind.

Letters to the Doctor III

I am happy today.
I haven't been happy for a long time after you left me. There was always you, your human you but I wasn't happy. I felt like you betrayed me. You've left me behind ins this other universe and I was so angry. I was so angry and I didn't want to feel anything else.
I had all these questions in my mind. Why have you left me? Why couldn't I come with you? Why didn't you want me anymore?
But one day these questions stopped. One day I knew why you've left me here.
You didn't gave me what I wanted but what I needed. You gave me a life with my familiy and without the dangers. I couldn't understand why you left your human self behind but you did it because you love me. You wanted to give me the chance to get old with you, at least with a part of you.
I am happy today, Doctor and I hope that, wherever you are at the moment, you are happy, too.

Quotes from "The Long Game"

Today is quote day again and I have some quotes from the episode "The Long Game" for you. Thank you by the way for your comments on my last post.

The Doctor: The thing is, Adam, time travel is like visiting Paris. You can't just read the guide book, you gotta throw yourself in. Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double, and end up kissing complete strangers. Or is that just me?

Adam Mitchell: Maybe I could just go and sit on the observation desk. Would that be alright? Soak it in. Y’know, pretend I’m a citizen of the year two hundred thousand.
Rose: D’you want me to come with you?
Adam Mitchell: No, no. You stick with the Doctor. You’d rather be with him. It’s gonna take a better man than me to get between you two.

Suki: You have been lying to the people.
The Editor: Ooh, I love it. Say it again.

Cathica: You’re not management, are you?
The Doctor: At last she’s clever! 

Cathica: Doctor, I think if there was any kind of conspiracy, Satellite 5 would have seen it. We see everything.
The Doctor: I can see better. This society's the wrong shape. Even the technology.
Cathica: It's cutting-edge!
The Doctor: It's backwards. There's a great big door in your head.

The Editor: (to the Doctor and Rose) This is fascinating. Satellite 5 contains every piece of information within the Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire. Birth certificates, shopping habits, bank statements. But you two… you don’t exist. There's not a trace. No birth, no job, not the slightest kiss. How can you walk through the world and not leave a single footprint? 

The Editor: Create a climate of fear and it’s easy to keep the borders closed. It’s just a matter of emphasis. The right word in the right broadcast repeated often enough can destabilize an economy, invent an enemy, change a vote.

The Editor: Is a slave a slave if he doesn't know he's enslaved?
The Doctor: Yes.
The Editor: Oh. I was hoping for a philosophical debate. Is that all I'm gonna get. "Yes"?
The Doctor: Yes.
The Editor: You're no fun.

The Editor: The human empire is tiny compared to what you've seen in your T - A - R - D - I - S. TARDIS.
The Doctor: Well, you’ll never get your hands on it. I'll die first!
The Editor: Well, die all you like. I don't need you.

The Doctor: The whole of history could have changed because of you.
Adam Mitchell: I just wanted to help.
The Doctor: You were helping yourself.
Adam Mitchell: And I’m sorry and I’ve said I’m sorry. And I am, I really am. But you can’t just leave me like this!
The Doctor: Yes, I can. 'Cause if you show the head to anyone, they’ll dissect you in seconds. You’ll have to live a very quiet life. Keep out of trouble. Be average. Unseen. Good luck.
Adam Mitchell: But I want to come with you!
The Doctor: I only take the best. I've got Rose.

Why is River Song in prison?

There are different theories out on the web why River Song is in prison.
I think the one which most of the people believe in is, that she was the one who killed the Doctor. But was it really her in this spacesuit in the episode "The Impossible Astronaut"? I really don't know. It could have been her because they are always meeting in the wrong order and she must have been a child when they've met for the first time.
River seems to have Timelord DNA but is she also able to regenerate or maybe regenerate just once? That's also something that puzzles me and I have heard different theories about it. Is River the girl we have seen in "Day of the Moon"?
I have read a comment lately that it's possible that we haven't seen the real Doctor die but a Ganger of him. That makes some sense but the technology must be more advanced then because normally the Gangers just disintegrate when they die.
Well, there are still a lot of questions we need and want an answer to concerning River and the Doctor. Please, vote in my new poll which is also about this theme.
One thing that also won't go out of my mind is how sad it must be for the Doctor to know how River dies all the time. That must be quite a burden for him.

Nightshade by Mark Gatiss

"Nightshade" written by Mark Gatiss is the second Doctor Who novel I have read until now.
It features the Seventh Doctor and his companion Ace. Strange things happen in the village Crook Marsham in 1968. People go missing without a sign and an actor in a retirement home starts to see horrible creatures from his old TV show. The Doctor and Ace land amidst all of this but the Doctor is haunted by old memories and thinks about retiring. When dead loved ones start to haunt the people of the village and kill them, the Doctor has to do what he does best: Help other people. Ace falls in love with boy from the village and thinks about staying with him. But will the Doctor let her go?
I think this book is better than the other one (Sands of Time) I read before. It stays mostly in one time and I think it's an interesting idea that people are lured to the alien by images of their loved ones. Before and after you know what is causing all this the book was quite creepy. It's a good read and something to get over the break in series 6.

You can download this book for free if you want. I'll post the link below.

Doctor Who Mega trailer + Rory picture

LastWhovian has made a brilliant Doctor Who trailer for Series 1-6. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

And then I found a brilliant picture of Rory which was retweeted by Steven Moffat. I'm not sure who made this but leave me a comment and I'll credit you.

Happy Birthday, Arthur Darvill

Today is Arthur Darvill's birthday better known as Rory to Doctor Who fans.
So, Happy Birthday to him and all the best. I think we all hope to still see you on Doctor Who for a while.

Poll results and Episodeguide

In my last poll I asked if you think the Doctor should be a woman after the next regeneration.
7 (63 %) voted against it, 3 (27 %) said maybe and 1 (9 %) said yes. I liked one of the comments where someone said he/she would like to see the Doctor in a body changing episode.

In my new poll I want to know what you think is the reason why River Song is in prison. You can comment on this post when you have different theories than my answers allow. Happy voting.

You can also find a Doctor Who, SJA and Torchwood episodeguide on my blog now. When you click on the links in the guide you'll get to the episode descriptions on tvrage.com which are quite good. I hope you enjoy it.

Quotes from "Dalek"

Today you will get some quotes again and this time they are from the episode "Dalek" from series 1.

The Doctor: (seeing a Cyberman head) The stuff of nightmares reduced to an exhibit... I'm getting old.

Henry Van Statten: We’re hidden away with the most valuable collection of extraterrestrial artifacts in the world and you just stumbled in by mistake?
The Doctor: Pretty much sums me up, yeah.
Henry Van Statten: Question is, how did you get in? Fifty-three floors down, with your little cat-burglar accomplice. Quite a collector yourself. She’s rather pretty.
Rose: She’s gonna smack you if you keep calling her "she."

Adam Mitchell: Mr. Van Statten owns the Internet.
Rose: Don’t be stupid. No-one owns the Internet
Henry Van Statten: And let’s just keep the whole world thinking that way, right, kid?

The Doctor: (to the Dalek) Fantastic! Oh, fantastic! Powerless! Look at you, the Great Space Dustbin. How does it feel?

The Doctor: (referring to the destruction of the Daleks) I watched it happen. I made it happen!

The Dalek: We are the same!
The Doctor: We're not the same! I'm not the...No, wait! Maybe we are!...Yeah, right! Okay. You've got a point! 'Cos I know what to do. I know what should happen. I know what you deserve...(grins) Exterminate!

The Doctor: Do you know what a Dalek is, Van Statten? A Dalek is honest. It does what it was born to do for the survival of its species. That creature in your dungeon is better than you.

The Dalek: They torture me, but still they fear me. Do you fear me?
Rose: No.
The Dalek: I am dying.
Rose: No, we can help.
The Dalek: I welcome death. But I am glad that before I die, I have met a human who was not afraid.

The Dalek: (to the Doctor; referring to Rose) What use are emotions if you will not save the woman you love?

Henry van Statten: I swear I just wanted to hear you talk!
The Dalek: Then hear me talk now. Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate! 

The Doctor: That thing killed hundreds of people.
Rose: It's not the one pointing the gun at me.
The Doctor: I've got to do this, I've got to end it. The Daleks destroyed my home, my people. I've got nothing left.

Sarah Jane Adventures

I'm in a kind of Sarah Jane Adventures marathon right now. There was nothing on TV the last 3 or 4 days so I watched at least on episodes of the Sarah Jane Adventures every evening.
I'm now at the beginning of series 4 and I really enjoyed the episodes I've watched. I think it's a great mixture between funny and scary episodes. The moments when they were covered in Slitheen rests were just hilarious. Maybe I have to slow down my watching speed because there are sadly not so many episodes left to watch but well, I can always start again from series 1.
Is it just me or are the characters in all the Doctor Who related shows really feel so real? I don't know sometimes when I watch the episodes it feels like these exact characters are like the ones in real life and you can stumble into them just outside of your house. That's maybe a bit strange or my imagination is just too big, I don't know.
You can leave me a comment if you sometimes feel like running into the Doctor or Sarah Jane, too.

For Jack - a Torchwood video

I have something from Torchwood for you today.
After I watched "Children of Earth" I wrote a poem for Jack. I also made a video out of it with pictures of Jack and Ianto. Well, I hope you like it. It now feels a bit longish when I re-watched it.

12 June 2011

What will you remember of the different Doctors?

I wondered what you will remember of the different Doctors?
I only know three of them because I haven't seen the older episodes of Doctor Who but I can tell you what I will remember of the Doctors 9-11 which were played by Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and now Matt Smith.
The Ninth Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston looked always a bit sad and like he felt the weight of the whole universe on his shoulders but I really liked his humor. He was really funny and the scene when he first met Rose will always stay in my head. I think he was more serious than the Doctors after him.
What I loved about the Tenth Doctor played by David Tennant was his smile. He really has a gorgeous smile and you want to smile along. Another thing I will remember is him saying "Allons-y". That was always great and who can forget this epic scene before his regeneration when he visited all his friends for the last time.
I really like that the Eleventh Doctor played by Matt Smith sometimes looks like a child when he finds something interesting. He doesn't say "Geronimo" very often in the new series which I also like.
Well that was it for now. Maybe you want to tell me what you like about the different Doctors and what you will remember of them.

Tenth Doctor and Donna avatars

Today I don't have a preview trailer for you because there won't be a new episode of Doctor Who tonight. *sigh*
Therefore you'll get some avatars today which were made by cibbi. (You can find the link to her page in my link section) If you are free to use them but she would be happy if you credit her. (Please ask if you want to display them on your homepage)

10 June 2011

Sadly I have to announce...

Some of you will probably remember my post where I asked the question if Matt Smith is still single. Unfortunately he is not. *sigh*
His girlfriend is the 22-year old model Daisy Lowe and they seem to be quite in love when you look at the pictures you can find in the boulevard press. What a shame another good man who isn't available anymore. So I guess I'm right with what I say all the time: All good men are either taken or gay!
For me she seems a bit young for him but what is an age difference of six years in our time. Nothing when you compare them to other couples. Well, you can always hope that they will split up someday but that would be quite mean. Anyways you can always dream about the Doctor that doesn't hurt anybody. (Sorry to the male readers, that's probably something you don't want to read but now comes something different)

Another thing is that you can find the latest Tweets of Steven Moffat now on the left side of my blog. (You have to scroll down a bit for it) If you the Tweets of anyone else there as well, please tell me and I am happy to put them there for you. I don't have Twitter and probably won't get it in the near future. If anyone reads this who has Twitter I won't complain if you could tweet the address of my bathroom post to Steven Moffat. Thank you! (But maybe don't mention this post)

River Song tribute

Today I have a tribute video about River Song for you (Thanks to Tardis Newsroom). It shows her big moments since the first episode with the Tenth Doctor up to the big revelation.
If you haven't seen the episode "A Good Man goes to War" don't watch this video because it contains spoilers.

Quotes from "World War Three"

Some great quotes from the episode "World War Three" from series 1.

The Doctor: I think you'll find the Prime Minister is an alien in disguise, and... that’s never gonna work, is it?
Military Police Leader: (shakes his head) No

General Asquith: Under the jurisdiction of the Emergency Protocols, I authorize you to execute this man!
The Doctor: Uh well, now, yes, you see, ah, the thing is, if I was you, if I was going to, ah, execute someone by backing them against the wall, between you and me, little word of advice... don't stand them against the lift!

Joseph Green: Excuse me. Your device will do what? Triplicate the flammability?
The Doctor: That’s what I said.
Joseph Green: You’re making it up.
The Doctor: Oh, well, nice try. (offers the decanter to Harriet) Harriet, have a drink. I think you’re gonna need it.
Harriet Jones: You pass it to the left first.
The Doctor: Sorry.

Jackie Tyler: Got anything stronger?
Mickey Smith: No chance. I've seen you when you've had a few. This ain't time for a conga.
Jackie Tyler: We've gotta tell someone.
Mickey Smith: Who do we trust? For all we know, they've all got big bog monsters inside of 'em. I mean this is what he does, Jacks, that Doctor bloke. Everywhere he goes, death and destruction, and he's got Rose in the middle of it.
Jackie Tyler: Has he got a great big green thing inside of him then?
Mickey Smith: I wouldn't put it past him. But like it or not, he's the only person who knows how to fight these things.

Mickey Smith: You’re safe in my flat, Jacks. No-one’s gonna look for you here, especially since you hate me so much.
Jackie Tyler: You saved my life. God, that’s embarrassing.

Rose: Can we just launch a nuclear bomb at them?
Harriet Jones: You’re a very violent young woman.

Harriet Jones: Well, the British Isles can’t gain access to atomic weapons without a special resolution from the UN.
Rose: Like that’s ever stopped ‘em.
Harriet Jones: Exactly, given our past record. And I voted against that, thank you very much. The codes have been taken out of the government’s hands and given to the UN. Is it important?
The Doctor: Everything’s important.
Harriet Jones: If we only knew what the Slitheen wanted. Listen to me, I’m saying "Slitheen" like it’s normal.

Jackie Tyler: Well, I’ve got a question, if you don’t mind. Cos since that man walked into our lives, I have been attacked in the streets. I have had creatures from the pits of Hell in my own living room and my daughter disappear off the face of the earth.
Rose: I told you what happened.
Jackie Tyler: I’m talking to him! Cos I’ve seen this life of yours, Doctor, and maybe you get off on it and maybe you think it’s all clever and smart, but you tell me... just answer me this... is my daughter safe?
Rose: I’m fine.
Jackie Tyler: Is she safe? Will she always be safe? Can you promise me that?

Joseph Green: Victory...should be naked!

The Doctor: Mickey the Idiot, the world is in your hands.

Rose: My mother's cooking.
The Doctor: Good. Put her on a slow heat and let her simmer.

What are you going to watch during the Doctor Who break?

Do you already know what you are going to watch during the Doctor Who break?
After the last episode on Saturday the Doctor Who fans are facing a hard time with no new episodes over the summer. I think it's really hard to wait for new episodes because of this cliffhanger at the end of the last episode and the revelation of River Songs secret.
Just some questions which come to my mind. Where is the Doctor now after he left Rory and Amy behind? What are Amy and Rory thinking of River? And one question I really want to know: How the hell is it possible that River can escape from prison so easily?

Are you going to watch some reruns of Doctor Who or will it be a Who free summer for you? I still have to catch up with some Sarah Jane Adventures episodes (I'm at the end of series 2 now) and there is always Torwood to look forward to in July but that's still a bit away.
Anyways, I'm still thinking about buying this DVD package from Amazon with all the episodes of series 1 to 4 of Doctor Who. Does anyone have it? Is it good?

Well, you can always come here and read some of my scribblings about the Doctor when you need a bit Doctor Who feeling over the summer. ;)

Series 6 Episode 7: A Good Man Goes to War

What an episode and such a mean cliffhanger. I really didn't expect this when I heard about the revelation of River Song's secret. That was definitely very good planning from the first time we saw River with the tenth Doctor. And now it's waiting time til the other half of the series is on TV.
For all who can't see the episode on TV you can watch it online.
A Good Man Goes to War

Rory and the Doctor try to find Amy and the baby and even attack the Cybermen to find out where she is. The Doctor collects debts from different people he has helped over time and builds an army to defeat the army on the asteroid "Demons Run". Only River Song says she can't help him when Rory asks her. She can only be with the Doctor at the very end. River is also right when she tells Rory that this is the time when the Doctor will rise higher than ever before but will also fall deeper. The Doctor can save Amy and the baby but at what cost? Have they really saved everyone and who is River Song?

04 June 2011

A Good Man Goes to War Trailer

I'm really looking forward to this episode but after that it will be a cliffhanger break. *urgh*
Anyways after the last episode we finally know why the Doctor always got these strange readings when he scanned Amy for pregnancy.

03 June 2011

What do you think about a female incarnation of the Doctor?

Have you ever thought about the Doctor as a female after the next regeneration?
I don't know if that's possible but come on he's a Timelord so why not change into a woman. And I guess he could be ginger as well then. That looks better on women than on men in most cases anyway.
You can't deny that it would bring an interesting twist to the story and there would be some hot male companions then. Nothing against Rory as a male companion but you can't say that he is especially hot. He is more cute in a cuddly way.
You can argue that the Doctor has always been a male and should stay a male but come on why not exchange the roles. Well, if you don't want to have a female Doctor for a whole series then think about what it would be like to have a body changing episode or something like that. I really think that would be quite funny to see the normal behaviour of the Doctor in a female and the other way round.
Anyways I would be happy to hear your opinion on this theme so leave a comment or vote in my poll which should be up for around two weeks.

Letters to the Doctor II

Here comes the second part of my "Letters to the Doctor" series.

Letters to the Doctor II

Dear Doctor,
This will probably be the last letter you will get from me. I have asked Mr Smith to send you this in case of my death.
I wanted to thank you for being such a great friend for all this years and showing me places all over the universe. You left me alone after our travelling but I am not angry about it anymore because you gave me a purpose. I have learned so much from you that I was able to protect the earth when you weren't there.
Don't be sad Doctor, I had a wonderful life because of you.
Can I ask you for a favour? Can you check on Luke and the other kids from time to time? I shouldn't call them kids anymore because they are grown up now and don't need my guidance anymore.
Maybe there will be something else after my death - who knows - but I will probably miss all the people I love.
I wish I could have travelled with you again, just once. This will be something that I will regret. But maybe you can fulfill this last wish of mine.
Bury me between the stars so I can watch over the earth forever.
Always yours,
Sarah Jane

Poll results + new poll + new BBC quote quiz

Today I have the results of my first poll for you.
Your favourite companion of the Doctors 9-11 is Rose (44%) but there were also some people who liked Martha, Donna, Jack, Amy and Rory (11% each).

In my next poll I want to know if you think the Doctor should be a woman after the next regeneration. I hope more people will participate this time.

There's a new quotes quiz on the BBC page which is more difficult than the last one. Have fun guessing from which episodes the quotes are.
