I seriously can’t think straight right now. One more day till my sister’s big milestone birthday, have a lot to process with the latest episode of Class, still mourning the passing of my Aunt Barb from November 1st, it’s after 5 in the morning on Guy Fawkes Day…*sigh* I’m going back to bed, but not before posting some Dapper Doctors. ♥♥


Pictured above is Georgia Moffett Tennant with her father, her husband, and some guy named Peter, who I think might be her doctor or something. 

I didn’t go to the Long Island Who convention last week, but I listened to the Big Finish podcast and there was a fun bit of (possible) news in there. 

Nicholas Briggs was interviewing Paul McGann, Colin Baker, and Peter Davison. At one point Davison pressed Briggs (who is executive producer at Big Finish) to provide more work for his real-life daughter Georgia Moffett—perhaps by making audio adventures with Jenny, the Doctor’s cloned daughter from the David Tennant episode of televised Doctor Who “The Doctor’s Daughter” broadcast in 2008. Initially Briggs replied in a neutral tone, but then he hemmed and hawed a bit, making noises about it being a good idea, and a possibility if certain things fall into place. As he went on, he then seemed to chide Davison slightly about confidential information, and then there is what sounds like an edit in the podcast and the foursome suddenly begin talking about something completely different.

Not everyone is a fan of that episode, of the character of Jenny in general principle. Personally, it’s not my favorite episode, but the character could certainly be used in interesting ways. I like the idea of a tough adventurer, who tries to use her parentage as a commodity to negotiate advantages during her adventures. I don’t know if that’s the approach they would take at Big Finish, but I’d bet cash money we’ll see the publication of a Doctor’s Daughter Adventures boxed set some time before the end of 2017.


I love this show and our fandom. William Hartnell started a phenomenon all those years ago and I thank him for it.This show is truly something special.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: it's been almost 2 years and i still think about how much better the doctor who 50th would have been with paul mcgann in the role of the war doctor. i just don't understand why a new incarnation played by an entirely random actor was necessary. especially when paul mcgann was so willing to return to the role of 8th doctor. are you really telling me he was only willing to do the 7 minute prequel? i don't believe it. he would have totally done the 90 minute episode. he's been playing the role for years off screen, longer than any other actor to boot, he would have totally taken up the offer to return to the screen. it would have been such a great book end to his movie as well; 7's regeneration into 8 and his regeneration into 9 both on screen. amazing. and do you know how much cooler it would have been to see the 8th doctor? To see him betray the name of the doctor, to see him become so desperate to stop the madness he throws himself into the war he tried so hard to avoid? do you know how much more heart wrenching that would have been since he's a character we actually know? why did they force a random regeneration on him when they could have actually used HIM for the episode? i just don't get it. it would have made so much more sense too. especially since in a way the 8th doctor really is the bridge between classic and new who and isn't that what the 50th was all about? celebrating the two and bridging them together? he was the first doctor to try to bring doctor who back - the bridge already existed. how does it honestly make sense to throw a man who never had anything to do with doctor who in as the bridge? that's just silly, isn't it? john hurt is a great actor and all but he's not the doctor, you feel? like we all assumed 8 was the one who fought in the war anyway, why change that? and wouldn't it just have been amazing to see paul, david and matt on screen together? like c'mon, they would have been fantastic. why didn't this happen? WHY DIDN'T WE GET PAUL MCGANN??? I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
