I see everyone GIFing the “her name was River Song” and “24 years” lines, but they’re are so more understated River parallels that haven’t been discussed:
River/Doctor in the crashing Harmony & Redemption (The Husbands of River Song) // “I know you miss her, but couldn’t you just write a poem?!” as Twelve and Nardole are crashing in the Harmony Shoal bomb ship
River unknowingly getting jealous of Younger River on their date nights (Last Night) // Twelve and Grant discussing Lucy/Grant’s “first date” with Twelve pointing out Lucy is jealous and Grant saying, “Technically she’s jealous of her.”
Donna: “Are you all right?” Ten: “I’m always all right.” (Forest of the Dead) // Grant: “Are you okay?” Twelve: “I’m always okay.”
River’s red dress for her night on Darillium (The Husbands of River Song) // Lucy walking out in her red dress for the Ghost despite her earlier conversation with Grant that implies she only wears it on dates: “No, no, no, it’s just that, well,
normally you wear the little red dress when you’re, er-”
“Right. Oh, picnic at Asgard. Have we done Asgard yet?” (Silence in the Library) // Grant taking a picnic basket on his “date” with Lucy.
“It’s okay, it’s okay. It’s not over for you. You’ll see me again. You’ve got all of that to come. You and me. Time and space. You watch us run!” (Forest of the Dead) // “Things end. That’s all. Everything ends, that is always sad. But everything begins again, too. And that’s…always happy. Be happy.”
Eleven sobbing after Clara asks him about the lady with the “funny name and space hair”
(The Name of the Doctor)
// Twelve walking away from Lucy after she says, “What was her name?”
I’ve just watched The Return of Doctor Mysterio, and I must say everything about the episode was perfect. I LOVED IT.
- superheroes in DW ‘verse who aren’t evil or alien (well, fully) - not everyone is English or American - not everyone is white - the Doctor has a male companion. come on! - superheroes have to have a daily job for they don’t get paid. someone said it. - we got to know what the aliens with zips from last year’s special are - male nanny - babies before anything. man has his priorities right. - the roof scene. precious. - child who adores comics = adult who still adores comics. reality. - child who’s sick on Christmas. also painful reality. - hints on how stupid Lois Lane is for not recognising Clark is Superman. - the squeaky toy (I know it had a name…) - all thejokes - Clark/Lois kind of love story. that was beautiful. - ‘girlfriend? boyfriend?’ - pushing all the buttons, aka Your Eleven Is ShowingTM - another nickname to add to Doctor Punkenstein’s list - Nardole’s speech at the end. it was right after River. - new trailer that let us know there’s not just Bill, but also Nardole. two companions.
However, I must point out one thing. Whatever happened to the rule the Doctor can’t ever land in NY? Did they forget, or…?explained, thank you, guys.
Hello, everyone! Admin Jack here. I thought it was only appropriate that I should be the one telling you that May 21st is the twelfth anniversary of the airing of The Empty Child, aka the introduction of our immortal leader of the torchwood team, Captain Jack Harkness.
Between that Sunday and the next Sunday (May 28th, the airing date of The Doctor Dances), there will be a prompt released for each day. The exact prompts are still in the works, but they should be posted within the next week or so to give you enough time to think about what you might want to write, draw, edit, or whatever else your creative hearts desire.
Like I said, more details will be coming your way soon! Just thought I’d keep you guys posted.
Series 10 will be Peter Capaldi’s FINAL series as the Doctor- his final episode will be the 2017 Christmas Special.
“It (the new series of Doctor Who) will be my last..it’s time to move on.”
“One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best. From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.”
For Day 5 of the ongoing countdown to Steven Moffat Appreciation Day we’re being asked for our thoughts on Series 8. Otherwise known as the season where Doctor Who was finally allowed to act like a grown-up. And not everyone liked it. But I loved it. (More after the break as this is a long one.)
