Quotes from "Evolution of the Daleks"

It is quote time again and this one will be the last in 2011. I have some quotes from "Evolution of the Daleks for you".

The Doctor: (to the Dalek Sec Hybrid) Is it me or are you becoming a little bit more human?

Tallulah: New York City - if aliens had to come to Earth, no wonder they came here.

The Doctor: Daleks are bad enough at any time, but right now they're vulnerable - and that makes them more dangerous than ever...

Frank: One man down and we haven't even started.
Martha: It's not looking good, Frank.
Frank: Nope.
Martha: We're gonna get slaughtered.

Dalek Caan: I shall have the privilege of exterminating the Doctor!

Dalek Caan: (to the Dalek Sec Hybrid) You asked us to imagine. We imagined your irrelevance!

Tallulah: Doctor, can't you do something?
The Doctor: Oh, Tallulah with 3 "l"'s and an "h". Just you watch me. What do I need, oh I dunno, how about a great big genetic laboratory? Oh look, I've got one. Laszlo, just you hold on! There've been too many deaths today; way too many people have died. Brand new creatures and wise old men and age old enemies, and I tell you, I tell you right now, I am NOT having one more death!

The Doctor: Tallulah, out of the way! The Doctor is in!

The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe

That was such a Christmassy Christmas episode and I really liked it. Now I wish that I could have snow here as well.

Summary:
The Doctor is on an exploding spaceship and tries to get off of it. He lands on Earth in a spacesuit and Madge brings him to the Tardis. Three years later Madge gets the news that the plane of her husband won't come back from the war but she doesn't want to tell her children on Christmas. They land in a country house where the Doctor acts as the caretaker. Cyril can't wait to open the big blue present in the sitting room and vanishes into a snowy forest. When the Doctor and Lily follow him, the Doctor notices that something is wrong. Will they be able to find Cyril, get out of the forest and be home for Christmas? Does Madge have to tell her children that their father is dead?

Naturally, the episode reminds you a bit of Narnia because of the title and the snowy forest but that's fine for me.  The Doctor was mad as ever and I really loved the scene at the end. I somehow had the feeling that the story was still a bit short and there could have been so much more in it but maybe that is just me feeling this way. It could have gone forever...that's probably the Christmas feeling and because this is the last new episode for quite a while.
I liked the "companions" of the Doctor, especially the kids were great. Some characters would probably have been better with a bit more of screen time. The story was very sweet and the Doctor had some great moments and everything was very christmassy. I think, the story lets you sigh and call for more and it is perfect for Christmas. Sometimes I would really like to know if Matt is so sweet in reality too but that will probably never happen. I have to say again that I like how he plays his Doctor and I can't understand the people who whine about him. For me they are no real Doctor Who fans. Well enough of that. Merry Christmas everyone.
You can watch the episode online here:

Quotes from "Daleks in Manhattan"

It is quote time again and today you'll get some from the episode "Daleks in Manhattan"

The Doctor: We've been to New New York. Well, there's the genuine article. So good they named it twice. Mind you, it was New Amsterdam originally. Harder to say twice, no wonder it didn't catch on. New Amsterdam, New Amsterdam.

Tallulah: (to Martha) It's the Depression, sweetie. Your heart might break but the show goes on cos if you stop, you starve.

Martha: This is insane, it's inhuman!
Dalek Thay: We are not human!

The Doctor: (referring to the Daleks) They always survive while I lose everything...

Dalek Sec Hybrid: I...am...a human...Dalek...I...am your future!

Series 1 Episode 2: The End of the World

The first episode in which the Doctor takes Rose into another time.

Summary:
The Doctor takes Rose into the future onto a space platform. They will see how the earth will burn because the sun expands. It is hard for Rose to comprehend that she is in the future but it is also difficult for her to see all the aliens. Now, Rose is aware of that she doesn't know the Doctor and that she hasn't thought about her decision to go with him. They soon find out that someone wants to sabotage the platform and that all people are going to die when the Doctor can't find a solution for the problem. What has Cassandra to do with everything and is she really the last human?

In this episode Rose starts to think about her decision to go with the Doctor and that she doesn't know him. Here we see some of the other sides of the Doctor, the deep pain that is within him because he is the last Time Lord but he still goes on. He still tries to save everyone who needs help but he can also be merciless. I like the episode because it tells more about the background of the Doctor, especially when you don't know any of the older episodes. It is interesting to see how the writers think the future will look like and how the people have evolved in that time. Definitely a great second episode.

Happy Birthday, Bill!

Today is the birthday of the actor Bill Pullman who played Oswald Danes in Torchwood: Miracle Day. He was born in Hornell, New York and started his acting career in the 1980s on stage in different theatres. Bill played in different movies and television shows but people will probably remember him as the President in "Independence Day". He is a creative writer as well.
Happy Birthday, Bill!

Doctor Who bookmark

I had some creative energy this week and I finally found a tutorial how to do letters for these friendship bracelets. Normally, I don't use them as bracelets but as bookmarks and I think the letters don't look that bad for a first try. What do you think of my Doctor Who bookmark?


Don't start to read the lines you can see in the picture because it has nothing to do with Doctor Who. I just took a random book out of my shelf for the picture. Maybe I try some other Doctor Who related designs soon.

Quotes from "Gridlock"

It is time for some quotes again and today I have some from the episode "Gridlock" for you.

The Doctor: (describing Gallifrey) It's quite like Earth but at night the sky is a burnt orange and the leaves on the trees are bright silver.

The Face of Boe: (to the Doctor) Everything has its time. You know that, better than most.

The Face of Boe: (his final words) But know this, Time Lord: you are not alone.

The Doctor: There was a war. A Time War. The Last Great Time War. My people fought a race called the Daleks for the sake of all creation. And they lost. We lost. Everyone lost. They're all gone now. My family. My friends. Even that sky. Oh, you should have seen it, that old planet... the second sun would rise in the south, and the mountains would shine. The leaves on the trees were silver, when they caught the light, every morning it looked like a forest on fire. When the autumn came, a brilliant glow through the branches...

Valerie: (referring to the Doctor) He's crazy!
Brannigan: And a bit magnificent.

The Face of Boe: He has arrived...

The Doctor: If it's any consolation, Valerie, I'm having kittens!

The Doctor: Don't go dying on me, you big old face!

Brannigan: (to the Doctor) You're very well dressed for a hitch-hiker!

Series 1 Episode 1: Rose

Now that I have all the episodes of the first four series on DVD, I want to start with reviews of these episodes and I'll start with the episode "Rose".

Summary:
Rose Tyler is a normal girl with a normal job until one day she sees how mannequins become alive and want to kill her. This mysterious man who calls himself the Doctor saves her life and blows the shop up in which she has worked. She meets him again and he tells her that he is an alien who wants to save earth because the Nesteen Consciousness wants to use the planet as food. Together they find the hiding of the alien but will they be able to talk it out of destroying the earth or do they have to destroy it?

Rose was my first ever episode of Doctor Who and I soon got addicted to it. I wasn't born or too young when the episodes with the former Doctors aired and it is always this thing with series being broadcast on German TV. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
I still like Christopher Eccleston's Doctor because he has this brilliant smile and he behaves a bit like a child but on the other side he can be very serious as well. Rose was a great choice for a companion because the Doctor gives her a chance to have the time of her life and she takes it without further thinking about it. The character of Jackie is great too but I didn't like Mickey very much in this first episode. I think the character gets better in later episodes.
"Rose" was a brilliant episode to relaunch Doctor Who and bring it back onto our TV screens.

I guess, I have told you...

I guess, I have told you that I had my eye on the Doctor Who DVD box with the first four series and now I have finally bought them as an early Christmas gift for myself together with the specials box. Here is the proof if you don't believe me.


I am so excited about it and I've already watched the episode Rose and the extras on DVD 1 of the first series. Now I have at least something for the Wholess year that is in front of us because it will be quite a long waiting period for all Whovians before new episodes will air after the Christmas special.
I guess I can now do the reviews of these episodes as well and use them for the episodeguide. Some of the descriptions from the page I am using now for the guide aren't that good. Well, now I have something to look forward to and you too. :)

Quotes from "The Shakespeare Code"

It is Monday again and today you get some quotes from "The Shakespeare Code".

Martha: Magic and stuff, that's a surprise. It's all a bit Harry Potter.
The Doctor: Wait till you read book seven. I cried.

Martha: (to Shakespeare) Your breath doesn't half stink!

The Doctor: Just think. When you get back, you could tell everyone that you've seen Shakespeare.
Martha: Yeah! And then I could get sectioned!

Martha: Expelliarmus!
The Doctor: EXPELLIARMUS! Good old J.K.!

The Doctor: How to explain the temporal flux...It's like Back to the Future.
Martha: What, the film?
The Doctor: No, the novelisation. Of course the film!

Shakespeare: How can a man so young have eyes so old?
The Doctor: I do a lot of reading.

The Doctor: All the world's a stage...you can have that one!

Shakespeare: This play must stop immediately!
Kempe: Everyone's a critic!

Lilith: Such sweet music shows your blood to be afire. Why wait beyond stale custom for consummation?
Wiggins: Oh, yes! Tonight's the night!

Shakespeare: (admiring Martha) Such unusual clothes. So... fitted...
Martha: Um, verily. Forsooth. Egads!
The Doctor: No, no, don't do that. Don't.

Shakespeare: To be or not to be... Ooh. That's quite good.
The Doctor: You should write that down.
Shakespeare: Maybe not. Bit pretentious?
The Doctor: Meh.

CSI:Gallifrey

This video is really cool. I don't know if you have seen one of the CSI series but here is the CSI:Gallifrey version.
