caz963: (DW Ten coat)
Having seen and been inspired by the housekeeping posts made by some of my f-listees, I thought I should probably have a look through all the fandom-related rambling I did in 2010 and see if it warranted organising. To my surprise, there was quite a lot of it.

Here, then are the thinky-thoughts, reviews, picspams, fanfic and meta that I posted last year:

Doctor Who )
Other Telly )
Fandom-related memes )
Picspams. Mostly David Tennant centric! )
Fanfiction )

My last couple of recaps/picspams have got away from me a bit, so I’m going to attempt to rein this one in.

We're the only two left, there's no one else. )

Yeah. Well, I did say attempt!!

We’ve got David Tennant and John Barrowman. And now John Simm as well. It’s fangirl heaven, isn’t it?

As is usual, the baddie gets all the best lines, and Simm makes the most of every single one of them. He’s charming, funny and terrifying at the same time – totally unhinged and, apart from being a psychopath, rather awesome :-)

This is also the culmination of Martha’s story. I’ve come to like her more and more over the course of this rewatch and one of the things I’ve liked about her relationship with the Doctor is the incredible amount of trust he put in her, right from the word go. And that carries on right the way through the season – in 42, Human Nature/Family of Blood and especially, here. Yes, she was in love with him, which at first I found rather annoying, but fortunately, that didn’t stop her from doing all the things she needed to do, even the things which put him through sheer hell!

It’s as if he’s mesmerized the entire world. )

The third season of Doctor Who has a three-part finale rather than the usual two-parter. Rusty has always tried to make each one even bigger than the last; we’ve had Daleks (S1), Daleks and Cybermen (S2)… so who better to bring back for the S3 finale than that other of the most memorable Who baddies, the Master? I remember both Roger Delgado and Anthony Ainley; that version of him tended to be rather urbane and restrained for a power-mad nutter. *g*

You. Are. Not. Alone. )

Blink is another of those episodes that regularly makes everyone’s “best of” lists. It’s this season's NET (Not Enough Tennant) episode, but what we got more than made up for that. When you think about it, he’s on screen for about 90% of the time per episode (and no, I haven’t made a scientific study of that, it’s just a guess!), so his schedule must have been manic. Presumably, the NET episode was put in to give him a bit of rest so he didn’t keel over on set.

The angels have the phone box! That's my favourite, I've got it on a tee-shirt! )

This is very long and rambly - a spammy ramble with pictures :-)

God, you're rubbish as a human! )

Human Nature and The Family of Blood quite deservedly make most people’s “top-ten Nu-Who stories” lists, including mine. The setting is fabulous, as is the story, the writing, the acting, the music – everything just works.

I remember being utterly blown away the first time I saw the episodes. I’ve seen them a couple of times since (although not necessarily in the same sitting or even in order!) and they never fail to impress me.

I dream I'm this... Adventurer. This...daredevil, a madman. 'The Doctor', I'm called. )

The weird thing about this episode is that I know I’ve seen it, and did in fact write about it on this very LJ when it aired… but I can’t remember a damn thing about it! I’ve not caught it on any repeats or watched it on DVD, so this is only the second time I’ve seen it.

We fix the engines, we steer the ship away from the Sun! Simple! )
caz963: (Ten tux&grin)
Moving on… It’s The Lazarus Experiment. It’s a “mad-scientist” episode. But more importantly –

Anyway, I think it suits you. In a James Bond kind of way. )

I’m the sort of Who fan who likes to see the positive. I recognize that there have been times when maybe Rusty has gone a bit overboard, or where something hasn’t worked, but for the most part, I’m looking to enjoy the good and prepared to accept that not everything can be spectacular all the time (and anything that puts David Tennant on my TV is a good thing in my book!) And I think it’s fair to say that the good stories have by far outnumbered the bad each season.

Right now you’re facing the only man in the universe who might show you some compassion. )

After the romp through Elizabethan England, we’ve returned to New (x15) York in the year five billion and fifty-three for Gridlock

Janis Jopin gave me that coat )

The Shakespeare Code is my favourite of the “Doctor meets famous a famous person from history” episodes. (The Unquiet Dead runs it a close second,) Interesting that of the four so far – Charles Dickens, Queen Victoria, Shakespeare and Agatha Christie – three of them are writers.

The play's the thing - and yes, you can have that! )

Smith and Jones is pretty much a straight-forward alien/adventure story with new aliens and the introduction of a new companion – medical student, Martha Jones.

Aliens. That's aliens. Real, proper aliens. )
caz963: (lawfully biodamped)
It’s no secret that Donna is my favourite companion in the whole of “nu-Who”, so of course I’m having a little squee because The Runaway Bride is next up on the DW Rewatch schedule.

I was a fan of Catherine Tate’s before this – Lauren Cooper, whilst being the bane of teachers everywhere was nonetheless an amazing creation – so I was pleased to see her arrive on the TARDIS at the end of Doomsday.

Sometimes... I think you need someone to stop you )
