I need something like a dating site, but for setting me up with an experimental film director who will collaborate with me on an artsy Ken Russell-style young Shostakovich biopic. Working title: “In A Dark Kingdom.”
Every piece of news I hear about Series 9 is getting me more and more excited.
The continuously evolving relationship between the Doctor and Clara.
Further progress on the Gallifrey arc.
The Sisterhood of Karn returning.
UNIT being heavily featured with more Kate and Osgood (this series is going to be very Pertwee).
Some awesome-looking new monsters.
The fact that plot threads from Day of the Doctor are still receiving narrative pay-off with the return of the Zygons and the supposed exploration we’re going to get of Capaldi appearing along the other Doctors to save Gallifrey.
Jamie Mathieson returning to co-write an episode with Moff.
The fact that this series will have the most female writers in the history of the show (it’s still an appallingly small number but it’s progress).
Rachel Talalay and Hettie MacDonald returning as directors.
The experimentation with the show’s format by including more two-parters and more interconnected stories.
The casting of Maisie Williams and Bethany Black along with the return of Jovian Wade as Rigsy.
PETER’S RED VELVET COAT
On paper, just looking at those twelve (heh) points, I think this will be what topples Series 5 from the #1 spot for me.
I’m can’t even begin to put into words just how much I’m looking forward to this…
I want an experimental director to direct el clasico in the hopes of her/him never even showing the ball. Just like, intense closeups of players’ left eyes and really beautiful wide shots. With the purpose being to capture the emotions and nothing else, not even dwelling on the score line or anything
