Well, I confess I wasn't expecting much, so I wasn't all that disappointed.

Oh, who am I kidding - I was disappointed anyway :(

I didn't get around to posting anything about the second of Big Finish's audios featuring Eight and Mary Shelley, so as the third has just been released, I thought I might as well kill two birds with one stone.

spoilers ahoy for both stories )

It's been ages since I committed fic!

Disclaimers: Not mine. Auntie’s. Although if David Tennant wants to come round to argue the point, I’d have no objections!

Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble

Rating: PG

Category: Introspection, missing scenes, angst, large dollops of UST and a bit of romance.

Spoilers: Set throughout S4, so it’s full of ‘em if you haven’t seen it! (Plus the odd, tiny reference to a couple of my own fics)

A/N: I can’t lay claim to any recognisable dialogue – that’s down to people far more talented than I.

Believe it or not, this was actually the first Ten and Donna fic I ever started to write, so it's had a gestation period somewhat akin to that of an elephant!

Unbetaed, but with grateful thanks to [ profile] canterlevi for her continual encouragement. As usual, I proof-read myself, so any mistakes are mine.

What is it about them and kitchens?
caz963: (Eight)
The latest Eighth Doctor adventure (and the first since Feb/March) was released yesterday. It wasn't due out until the end of the month, but good ol' Big Finish put it out early, so I nabbed my copy and decided to save it to listen to when I'm in France next week.

Alas - I've never been very good at delayed gratification, and there was a large pile of ironing glowering at me last night, so...

It’s no secret that I've become rather disullusioned with Doctor Who of late. I don't plan to stop watching any time soon, because on some levels, I still enjoy it - I just have to accept that much of what I'm watching is going to be pretty much bereft of decent characterisation and character development and overly concerned with convoluted plots that don't make much sense in the end.

Anyway, that mini-rant isn't the purpose of this post. Instead, I wanted to suggest to any of my fellow fans who are a bit fed up with Moff's version of DW, that they turn their attention towards the work being done by those splendid chaps over at Big Finish.

I've been away from the computer for a couple of days - the weather has been so bloody good; far too good to waste it sitting inside hunched over a keyboard! But I can't let the weekend pass without some thinky-thoughts on the Doctor Who finale.

There was good and bad - but mostly I'm pretty ambivalent about it. I don't feel quite as let down as I did by The Big Bang, but I suspect that's because my expectations weren't very high to begin with.

Doctor Who? )

I haven't posted much lately about Wot I 'ave Bin Watching on the telly. Partly, that's because I've not been watching much and partly it's because I just haven't got around to it.

But with the new seasons starting on both sides of the Pond, I thought it was time to ask what people are going to be watching and/or looking forward to later.

Torchwood, Fringe, White Collar and Other Stuff )
So what's everyone else watching/looking forward to?
caz963: (Doctor Rocks)
I've been looking forward to this one since I heard that James Corden was returning to DW to reprise his role as Craig. I thought The Lodger was one of the best episodes of S5 and I've enjoyed Gareth Roberts' work on both DW and SJA, so I was predisposed to like Closing Time anyway.

And like it I did.

You've redecorated! I don't like it. )

You are the Fifth Doctor
Take The Doctor Who Personality Test and Horoscope today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You are a kind hearted and somewhat shy person. You love cricket and celery, in that order. You like to walk with big strides and always speak as if you are out of breath. You like to have a large group of friends, some of whom will do nothing but complain, but you always remain civil to them. You will kill a teenager in front of your friends who will resent you for it. You will sacrifice yourself to save some chick with lucious rack.

There are certainly a number of teenagers I'd be tempted to murder on a daily basis! And I'm not sure about the cricket, but I DO like celery ;-)

I love DWM, I really do. Although these days, I tend to read it from about the middle to the end first, because that's the part that has all the video, book and audio reviews and the "Fact of Fiction" section. I'm not so enthusiastic when it comes to reading the stuff about the current series.

But I digress. What I'm moaning about is this.
I suppose this could be considered a spoiler )

I've been AWOL from here for a while and didn't get around to posting my thoughts on The Girl Who Waited )

I said after LKH that I was looking to the four standalone episodes between LKH and the series finale to regenerate my enthusiasm for Doctor Who, and I have to say that the three that have aired so far have been some of the most enjoyable episodes of S6.

The God Complex was creepy and claustrophobic, starting out as one thing and turning into another. Toby Whithouse is forever on my "good" list for penning School Reunion, and here again, he gets to show us something of the Doctor's darker side and to get under his skin, just a little. It's not that we were told anything we didn't already know - I suppose I just wasn't expecting it at this point in the series.

Anyone who reads my LJ either regularly or just for telly-related stuff knows (I hope) that I try to offer a considered opinion and to express my views politely.

I found this on tumblr and it made me smile.

caz963: (Eight)
I've finished listening to the Big Finish DW audios featuring the Eighth Doctor, Charley and C'Rizz. They were originally produced between January 2001 and late 2007, so I've obviously come to them pretty late in the day. Not that it matters. I've enjoyed listening to them on the whole, even though there were a couple I struggled to get through. But there are more than 25 of them, so I suppose they can't all be belters.

I read something today which reminded me of a comment I'd made concerning the current series of DW.

I've been listening to more Big Finish DW audios over the last couple of months, but I haven't got around to posting my thoughts on them. I've started to 'branch out' and listen to Doctors other than Eight as well although the EDAs have formed the bulk of my listening so far.

I've just read a fic over at [ profile] doctor_donna that I enjoyed so much that I had to rush to pimp it - and you can find it here. We know that the Doctor has, at some point told River about Donna. What if he confides in someone else as well, someome who has also had to live with the fact that an important woman in his life had forgotten him? It' s a lovely read - and may induce the odd sniffle.
caz963: (Ten LoTL)
My last post about the last ep of DW was more about all the unanswered questions that have been left hanging for three months rather than the episode itself, so now I've had a chance to rewatch it, I've got More Thoughts.

So let me show you them )
