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 )
caz963: (Ten & Donna JE)
I think this is going to be the last of these picspams – for a while at least. I’ve done almost all of S2, S3 and S4 (I missed The Christmas Invasion and New Earth - well, not missed exactly, just decided to start doing the spams after those episodes had aired) and I’ve already posted some of my thoughts about the specials here. Although I might have to picspam The Next Doctor at some point, because there is a lot of pretty in that! :-) But I’m not going to be able to get through all five specials before S5 starts on Saturday, and I’d planned to finish these before the new series starts, so…

On to the S4 two-part finale. Meta and Tennant pretty, because I can’t help myself. *g*

Oh - and this is a really long one.

And for one moment... one shining moment... she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe. )

Turn Left is another stonking episode with an absolutely stunning central performance from Catherine Tate. I said when I started recapping S4 that I thought that one of the reasons that this series is so strong overall is because of her; partly because I think Rusty wanted to make sure that she was given things to do that would show people that thought she was ‘just a comedienne’ and 'not the right choice' a smack round the face.

Well. Blimey.

It was the most ordinary day in the world, but by turning right, you never met the Doctor and the whole world just changed around you. )
caz963: (DW Midnight Ten b&w)
The first time I watched Midnight I was bloody impressed. I’ve seen it twice since then, I think – once a few weeks ago on DVD, and then on this rewatch, and each time, I’ve been more and more taken with it.

There's no life in this entire system, there couldn't be. )
caz963: (Ten flippy thing)
I’ve found it quite hard to get into this next run of picspams. Not because I don’t like the episodes, but probably because I know what’s coming and that it’s going to hurt :-(

Count the shadows. For God's sake, remember... if you want to live, count the shadows )

Image and rambling heavy!
caz963: (DW Ten and Donna UW)
God, I love The Unicorn and the Wasp. What a fun episode. It’s this season’s “Doctor meets famous historical figure” episode and this time, it’s Agatha Christie, which is a nice bit of continuity from his suggestion to Martha at the end of S3 that they go back in time to visit her.

Absolutely spiffing, what? )
caz963: (ten sad smile)
The Doctor’s Daughter is about the only episode in Series 4 that I just can’t warm to. If I had to list the episodes this season in order of preference, this one would probably be at the bottom.

Seriously, there's an outrageous amount of running involved )
caz963: (Ten oncoming storm TPS)
A little bit of meta and a lot of pretty pictures for the concluding part of the Sontaran two-parter :-)

I’m stuck, on Earth like... like an ordinary person. How rubbish is that! )
caz963: (ten!specs)
In The Sontaran Stratagem and The Poison Sky we’re back on Earth for a fairly straightforward “Aliens want to take over the Earth” story. It’s a much better story than last year’s early season two-parter (yes, I still can’t forgive them for the hybrid-mutant-pig-dalek-slaves!) and I’m rather fond of it for the following reasons:

No hybrid-mutant-pig-dalek-slaves
The return of Martha
The return of Wilf
The return of an old adversary (I'm always a sucker for the 'old' baddies when they come back!)

And last, but by no means least - David Tennant is ridiculously pretty.

I was going to post one entry for both episodes, but ... um... yeah.

In-tru-der window! )
caz963: (DW so not married)
I think that The Fires of Pompeii and Planet of the Ood are almost like a two-part continuous story. Of course they’re not, but in terms of the way they both present Donna to the audience and continue to reveal and develop her character and her relationship with the Doctor, I feel a strong sense of continuity. We had a trip back in time in Earth's history, and now we're in the future on another planet, so it's a good balance, and gives Donna the chance to show that kindness and compassion go a long way, no matter what the date or what galaxy you're in.

Well, do something! You're the one with all the tricks - you must've met Houdini! )
caz963: (Ten and donna pompeii)
As usual, the TARDIS hasn’t quite ended up where it should have done. This is yet another of those always-unanswered questions in Who – how come the TARDIS will sometimes end up in the right place at the right time, but other times, it’s way off? Not that I’m complaining – I’m not that much of a stickler – it’s just something I ponder from time to time.

So here we are -

I'll tell you where the wind's blowing right now, mate. )
caz963: (DW Ten PiC grin)
I'm a few days behind with my rewatch posts, but I'll try to catch up a bit over the weekend!

So we're into Season 4, proper. It’s my favourite season of Who so far, and I think it’s probably also the strongest in terms of the stories and characters and acting as well. (Not that the acting’s ever been bad, it’s just that the stories this season really gave the cast – the two principals especially – a chance to really show off their acting chops.)

I'm waving at fat. )
caz963: (ten votd)
I’m going to admit it. I love Voyage of the Damned.

And no, it’s not (just) for the reason you think.

Warning: VERY Tennant image heavy.

Allons-y Alonzo! )
