The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 13]

Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365

How is David enjoying himself, now that he’s had a couple of weeks to settle into the role of the Doctor?

“It’s been great fun so far,” he tells me after the take. “Very exciting.”

Has he slipped into it effortlessly? Or is he still getting used to being Doctor Who?

“It’s in between the two at the moment,” David admits. “You turn up every day and you get on with it - there’s a schedule and you’ve got a job to do - but, every now and again, standing in these caves in my pyjamas, with a broadsword, I look around and there’s Sean dressed up as a huge alien, and down the other end of the cave is the TARDIS blinking away, and I do have a moment of going, ‘This is just unreal! This is impossible!’ I think this episode is particularly good fun, because there’s the sword fight, and the Doctor waking up, and there’s some really great, juicy stuff, so it’s a lovely one to start with.”

It’s just like an Andrew Pixley Archive come to life, isn’t it? [Andrew Pixley wrote behind-the-scenes “Archive” features for Doctor Who Magazine]

“It is!” says David, roaring with laughter. “I mean, it really is! It’s got all the same kind of ridiculousness, and compromises, and highs, and lows, and madness that I suppose this show has always had. It’s very quick, very fast - there’s an awful lot to do. We’ve got a schedule like all TV dramas have a schedule, but also we’ve got special effects, and CGI, and prosthetics, and all that stuff just takes so much time. The attention to detail is amazing.”

Angst (Sorta?)


Everyone was sat inside of Tony and Bruce’s lab.

“So you’re telling me, you ripped out your plumbing?” You nodded your head at Tony. “And you did it because of a memory?” Once again you nodded your head.

Bruce raised his hand to stop Tony. “How did you get this memory to come to you?” You blushed, feeling sort of foolish on how the memory came to you.

“Well, you see, the sound of the shower brought me to the memory… Steve got beat up pretty badly, I asked Bucky to place him against my tub and to turn on the water. I don’t understand why of out of everything that could trigger a memory, the sound of the shower is what caused it.” You were feeling like quite sheepish now. Really, why did it have to be the sound of the shower?

Tony sat himself against one of the lab tables. He seemed more amused than frustrated on you breaking things again. “We really need to set some house rules for you…” He looked at you, his eyebrows furrowed but shoulders tense. “I say we try to speed up the process of her getting the memories back.”

“And how do you suppose we do that?” Nat argued.

You could only shake your head at Tony. The only ways known for you to get the memories back were from forcing your way into your head or finding a trigger. It could take months, maybe even years to find everything lost inside of you.

Bruce took of his glasses, already tired from this conversation. “Tony, there’s no feasible way of speeding up the process. Even if we were to let Y/N solely focus on her memories every waking minute, it could kill her.”

Tony smirked at Bruce, then towards everyone else. “Do you all have little faith in God?”

‘Great, he’s lost it.’

He then pointed towards Thor. “I suggest we take a trip to the heavens.”

“Wait a second pistol, you’re telling me, Thor over there is a God?” You couldn’t believe it, nor would you believe it. Your ma only spoke of one God, sure she only spoke of that one God on Sundays but she never spoke of there being more than one.

Tony continued to smirk, he knew that you were skeptical of Thor, never knowing of what he is or what he could do.

“Dear Y/N, have you ever read about Norse mythology?”

“I might have back in the day, but as you can tell, I can’t remember.” You were getting fed up now, you wanted the straight facts and you weren’t getting any from Tony.

Tony’s smirk changed to a smile, he then made his way to where Thor was sitting. He placed a heavy hand on Thor’s shoulder. “Well Y/N, since you can’t remember a thing,” you rolled your eyes, “Thor is the God of thunder, son of Odin? All great and powerful, yada, yada, yada, what I’m getting at is a certain brother should be able to help her…”

N O.” Everyone said in unison. You along side with Tony winced from the harshness of their voices.

“Stark, you must understand that my brother is not a man to be fooled with. For he will make the fool to be you!” Tony knew of the risk, but having you destroying everything basically everyday, almost blacking out, and bleeding out means that the risk is worth it. But it wasn’t his choice to make, nor Thor’s, nor Steve’s, it wasn’t anyone’s choice but yours.

“You all know that this is a risk. But having the chance of Y/N dying each time when getting a memory isn’t an answer.” They all knew he was right, and with a solemn look on his face he continued. “This isn’t for us to decide, it’s Y/N’s.”

You had let out a breath you didn’t realize you were holding. “Lets go.” It wasn’t an answer everyone wanted to hear, but they respected it. “But, before any of us go, not everyone can come. What if the Earth needs saving?” No one had thought of that either. They all looked around each other, as if trying to pick and choose whose to stay.

Steve was the first to speak up. “I’ll go.”

You were the first to shoot him down. “You’re staying, what if people need you especially Steve?” He didn’t seem to sway at your words. But you were not going to have any of it. “You’re keeping your Brooklynn punk ass here. This is dangerous, I know it is, so I am not going to risk losing you again.” This time you stood and made your way across the room. He stared at you, you could tell he had put on an authoritative stance, yet his eyes seemed to be filled with sadness.

why is affinity so hard to get it’s basically dark bead from dks1 but does like 99% less damage I swear it’s a “sorcery” but the only way to get it is by giving a PYROMANCY TOME to a PYROMANCER like what kinda half ass logic but its so poorly used in PVP that I’ve killed like 3 fools in an invasion by casting affinity then casting soul stream so the fucker dodges into my shitty dark soulmass and takes like 560~ damage basically halving his dumbass 31 VIG hp like who the fuck doesn’t level vigor it’s such an important stat and im also helping the community by impolitely reminding gamers that SORCERIES are still a thing and not shitty and helping everyone remember that Great Magic Barrier exists in Archdragon Peak and that it’s still the most OP miracle ever remember GMB in dark souls 1 and how it basically made Dark Bead spammers seek psychological help because of how it cancelled like 900% of the damage They did in PVP so if you ask me im not a bad PVPer at all I actually consider myself quite the Good Samaritan by showing dark souls players how to properly deal with shitty homing sorceries like think of me as the worlds most fucking annoying tutorial boss

my point is if someone tells you sorceries suck in Dark Souls 3 show them this image and kick them in the groin then run off with their wallet and use it to buy the Dark Souls 3 season pass because we all know a Londor dlc is fuckin inevitable thank you and have yourselves a wonderful weekend and night

The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion was a gem

I mean. Woah. It blew my mind completely.

  • The Doctor’s speech in the second episode. It was beautifully written but what made it work was Peter’s acting. Incredible. I don’t even have words.
  • Jenna’s brilliant acting for both Clara and Bonnie. The moment where Bonnie breaks after the Doctor’s speech was so perfect. Because it was still Bonnie but you could see the Clara shades underneath. I was amazed. And also all of the scenes with Clara in her “apartment” when she’s in fact in the pod. Well, pretty much all the scenes with Clara and/or Bonnie to be fair.
  •  The plot, obviously, and all the references to The Day of the Doctor.
  • All the plot-twists (damnit Kate, I didn’t saw this coming). I made like 3 heart attacks, why am I not dead ?
  • The moral of the story. It makes you think about life, like crazy.
  • The Whouffaldi feels. The face of the Doctor when he thinks Clara is dead got me like ashdgfk. 
  • Don’t look at my brower’s history !”
  • “Doctor are you enjoying this ?”
  • Clara being clever af. She always is, I know, but the texting thing was so smart.
  • Ooops, Whouffaldi again ! “I let Clara Oswald get inside my head. Trust me. She doesn’t leave.“  I died. 
  • The Doctor saying “I forgive you.” to Bonnie. Again, brilliant acting from both Peter and Jenna.
  • Wouffaldi again ? Yep, whouffaldi again !  Clara: So, you must have thought I was dead for a while? The Doctor: Yeah. Clara: How was that? The Doctor: Longest month of my life. Clara: It could only have been five minutes! The Doctor: I’ll be the judge of time. Do you hear my heart shattering ???

Supergirl Melissa Benoist Talks About The Invasion! Crossover #DCWeek

I predict Amethyst will have an identity crisis and it’ll turn her against the Crystal Gems

So we all know Amethyst harbors feelings of self-hatred and she questions her identity. She’s haunted by her origins from the Kindergarten. As Steven observes, Amethyst ‘doesn’t want to think about herself’. She’s a Crystal Gem, but is inexperienced and not as strong as war veterans Pearl and Garnet, who she often are at odds as well.

Rose, Pearl, and Garnet didn’t do any favors by never having a good talk with Amethyst. Problems - especially the issues of caste and invasion that makes up a huge part of Gem life, the very past that created the present Crystal Gems - don’t go away if you ignore it. They become invisible and insidious; you can’t fix anything if you don’t even acknowledge it.

So Amethyst doesn’t know anything about her origins, except that she came from someplace evil. Rose, Garnet, and Pearl never told her anything. In fact, they avoid talking about it. They are ashamed of the past; they are ashamed of her, Amethyst concludes. She’s wrong and bad and a mistake, and she thinks this about herself for thousands of years.

Enter Peridot.

Peridot gives answers. Peridot gives explanations. Peridot confirms what Amethyst suspected all along. It’s super biased information, but Amethyst doesn’t know that.

And Amethyst, always feeling like she didn’t belong, gets to ruminate on these new facts, keeping it to herself, without Pearl, Garnet, or Steven to correct her, without their love and support. She’ll wonder about what she could have been, about her purpose, about who she is and who she should be. She needs closure.

To Amethyst, both the Crystal Gems and Homeworld represented by Peridot thinks she is a mistake. But while the Crystal Gems also think the Kindergarten is evil (and her the evil result), Peridot doesn’t.

Peridot tells her she’s a Quartz, she’s worthy, she’s strong, she’s a ‘real’ Gem. Peridot tells her she shouldn’t be following orders, she should get to do whatever she wants - appealing to someone who has sometimes chafed under Pearl’s lectures and Garnet’s leadership.

Peridot told her the truth, while Pearl and Garnet betrayed her by omitting it.

And all these leads to conflict with episode titles like:

BUT this is all a prediction, a guess. Maybe I’m wrong. This is pretty cliche and the Crewniverse will go beyond and have something even better. Given that Amethyst’s inner turmoil was not settled at all in “Too Far”, I really hope there’s an arc, and we’ll get amazing Amethyst character development.
