we love doctor who

“Shall We Dance” - Digital Oil Painting

I love the way this one turned out, all the little details like the hair and the lace and the fabric folds! I also love that you can interpret this as different BP and DT characters. She could be Lily, but she could also be Rose, all pink and yellow, after convincing the Doctor to actually stay for the party in their honor and their hosts provided them with appropriate clothing. She just caught him looking at her cleavage during their dance and he’s fumbling for an excuse or apology, he’s not sure which, while continuing to look-notlook. Hehe! Feel free to use as inspiration for fic, if you want!

I really -really- love that episode 2 promo pic of Peter in the middle of the field, like I think about it at least 30 times per day.
I could easily imagine Gallifrey on the background so, since photo manipulation is not my area, I.. decided to draw the whole thing.


(Second picture is just a zoom in because the face is not a total disaster so I can show it off…a bit)

Behind the Scenes of Fear Her - Part Two

From the DVD Commentary with Julie Gardner [executive producer] and Matthew Graham [writer]

Julie Gardner: I love this finger-in-jam moment.  I remember seeing it on the rushes and just loving it.

Matthew Graham: Well that’s how it goes with this show.  One minute the Doctor is saying, “There’s a terrible evil in your house and I’m here to help,” and the next minute he’s eating your jam, and being ticked off for it.

JG: I remember at one point, in one draft of the script, there was a big discussion about whether we should see the Doctor and Rose asleep overnight, because they are trapped in this house.  And I was very, very keen on that because that’s something we’ve never seen before, and I think Russell and you both said, “Actually, no - we’ve got to keep the energy going, and given what’s happening he’s never going to be off-guard.”

MG: Do you know what, it would have been a really nice scene. The thing is, we probably would have cut it out at this stage

JG: Because you’d want to keep moving.  Absolutely.  Oh, all these nice ideas that never make it in.

okay but i found it so hilarious that the master instantly called missy missy because she didn’t make any sort of introduction or announcement like he just knows she calls herself missy which implies that throughout their lives they’ve considered the scenario of regenerating into a woman and picked name for like it didn’t just happen with her regenerating and chosing a name but they had it all planned out in case it happened and that’s both hilarious and amazing

The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 16]

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

“Kids are going to be terrified,” says James [Hawes, director], as everyone at the tone meeting wonders how to turn trombones into flamethrowers. “Poor bloody kids. Happy Christmas, kids of England!”

“Can we do that to a trombone?” asks Russell [T. Davis, writer/showrunner]

“I think,” concedes Phil [Collinson, producer], “we’ll have to buy our own instruments.”

“No, let’s go and mug some buskers,” suggests James.

“Edwardo, you’re providing the instruments?” asks Phil.

“No,” replies Edward.

“I think you misheard the question. You ARE providing the instruments.”

“Knives?” Edward suggests. “Scalpels?”

“And then,” continues Phil, turning the page of his script, “we have my favorite four words of the episode: ‘tree begins to topple’…”

“Let’s kill Santa!” chuckles Julie [Gardner, exec producer]. “Death by tree!”

“His black boots sticking out from underneath,” laughs Phil.

The murderous Christmas tree in the Tylers’ flat is a greater challenge. Real trees are difficult to recreate in CGI (”lots of fiddly bits,” points out Dave Houghton [visual effects supervisor]). Thankfully, Russell was thinking of an artificial tree. He just forgot to mention that in the script.

“When it activates, all the needles fall off,” he explains, “so it’s just a metal structure. It literally becomes a blur, like the Tasmanian Devil. And then it trashes Jackie’s flat.”

Edward grins. “Can it break her coffee table… again!”

“She’s always sweeping up glass,” sighs Phil.

So what weapons does the tree have?

Dave: “Nunchucks!”

Russell: “Tinselly Nunchucks?”

Phil: “What are nunchucks?”

Russell: “Nunchucks. Things that nuns throw.”

Behind the scenes of The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit (Part 6)

Excerpts from the DVD commentary for The Impossible Planet (with David Tennant, Shaun Parkes [played Zachary Cross Flane], and Will Cohen [visual effects producer] )

Will Cohen: This - not that I often go into fan forums or anything, but this scene caused a bit of controversy.

DT:  Did it really? Why?

WC: …and a certain amount of delight amongst fans because - the sort-of domestic conversation that you have with Rose Tyler.

DT: Ahhh

WC: Talking about mortgages and settling down.

DT: Right

WC: It was the subject of many threads.

Shaun Parkes: They didn’t like that?

WC: Well, there was the usual split

DT: For and against?

WC: That’s what makes it brilliant

DT: Part of this is, of course, as the series goes on there’s a cranking-up of this whole idea of the Doctor and Rose being inseparable and talking about things like this is part of that, I suppose.  Just so the finale of the season, which - if you’re listening to this commentary I presume you know what’s coming for Rose - it’s just to, you know, make that feel all the more painful and poignant when they’re finally torn apart forever.  In fact, I think it’s episode nine when the devil says,“The young girl who will die in battle very soon,” was the first bald reference to what was coming at the end.

SP:   Ooooooohhhhhh

DT:  Yeah, you got it?

SP: But she didn’t die… but she did…

DT:  Well, she sort-of died, didn’t she?  She’s dead in the real world.

SP: She’s dead in the real world.  Hmmmmm.
