Mini-Reactions: Doctor Who episodes 6.07 through 6.13
Onward in the Doctor Who Catchup with more briefish reactions from the weekend. Also some serious profanity in spots. Posting in a major rush, might edit later, hope I haven't said anything too stupid.

[Quick note on something at the end of 6.06]Quick note on something at the end of 6.06

aelfgyfu_mead brought up the matter of the Doctor killing Ganger!Amy, which I can understand was disconcerting to many fans particularly after all the work in this episode towards establishing that Gangers are individuals. After this was pointed out, we had a discussion about it and my muddled handwavy thoughts on the matter are in this thread if anyone wants to see.


Doctor Who 6.07 - "A Good Man Goes to War"

-Paramilitary types and woman with eye-patch, you've kidnapped and held captive an active companion of the Doctor for a period of at least 9 months. You are so not prepared.

-OMG CYBERMEN!!! \o/ Oh, wait. Cybermen + Gangers = Next Generation Cylon type Cybermen? EEEK. D:

-"There's a man who's never gonna let us down." Well, the Doctor did kind of epically at the start, so I think she's talking about Rory, because that would also be true. And awesome.

-"He's the last of his kind." Well darn, not Rory then. There's loads of male nurses.

-"Because this man is your father." ...my face just went O.o so hard I got a cramp. So... she is talking about Rory, right? And that last of his kind/hundreds of years business is like a metaphor? Or the Doctor is the metaphorical father? Because, I'm sorry, NO.

-As the Last Centurion. \o/ YESSSS! RORY! Oh god I was scared of where that was going for a second there.... Wait, has he still been an Auton all this time or did he get over that? That's the trouble with having such a long go between watching new series', I lose plot elements.

-"What is the Doctor's message?" Oh that's where the clip with the explosions in that MacRory fanvid came from. Looks like the Doctor's message is 'BOOM'

-"Would you like me to repeat the question?" Rory is badass, y'all! \o/

-Name on shirt is 'Cleric', oh hey, these are the religious-ranked militia that had River Song in those Weeping Angels episodes in series 5

-Much as laughing and joking as the ubiquitous evil (headless!) monks lead you off for whatever reason is full of bravado, it's also full of stupid. *headshake*

-"You have been selected." Well, crap. So he'll die, leave his unnamed husband effectively widowed, but still be looming around the corridors in faceless robes, able to watch his spouse grieve and do nothing about it. That sounds like a sort of perfect Hell to me. Worse than just dying.

-Deep hoods cover a lot of awkward questions in any era. Like "Why is your Ladyship a lizard?"

-The Doctor going through space and time, picking up miscellaneous BAMFs and assembling a strike team is kind of awesome.

-SONTARAN! \o/ It's old home week!

-A Sontaran nurse. ...huh. "Someday we shall meet on the field of battle and I shall destroy you for the glory of the empire." ... gee, thanks, nurse.

-Another thing about it having been so long since I watched series five and the first part of series 6 is I don't know who I'm supposed to recognize

-"Hello, Rory." Oh dear. The tone of that greeting does not bode well. For the 'Spoilers!' policy River seems to hold, she needs to work on her telegraphing.

-Oh, and she checks her spoiler book so she knows what's going on. (Yes I'm pretty certain I know who 'Melody Pond' grows up to be. Even if I hadn't picked it up through fandom osmosis, the name's a pretty big giveaway.)

-"Look ridiculous." There's something to that though. If you look ridiculous people will tend to underestimate you or dismiss you. Also, there's armor in that outfit. Should stop moderate solid impact torso damage. Won't help if he takes an arrow in the knee though.

-"I can't, not yet." Darkest hour, higher than ever before, fall further. Hm. Maybe it's because I haven't trusted River Song in anything after her death at the Library, but part of me wonders if she's just winding him up and it'll all be a cakewalk. Or since evidently she wasn't there at Demons Run (yet?), she's only got the Doctor's word on what happened and HE over blew everything. Either way, I'd say she can't be at Demons Run because if she comes in contact with herself as a baby everything goes boom due to the Blinovitch Limitation Effect (I did say I knew) but Moffat's tossed out the Blinovitch Limitation Effect with the Christmas sharks, so that's probably not it, unless he's restarting it and going to leave the lack of it in A Christmas Carol as a big old handwave, but anyway, not sure of how reliable River is being here or why.

-"This is the day he finds out who I am." Oh good, I won't have to go back and spoiler cut that last comment then.

-Dorian! Where's he from, he looks familiar. "If that man is finally collecting on his debts, god help you, and god help his debtors." Yep. Heheheh.

-"Demons run when a good man goes to war." Oh wow, I love that.

-"Why would you need me!? I'm old! I'm fat! I'm blue!" Once we get past the inherent self-loathing and racism of that comment, he needs you because you know things and people. He's after you for intel, you twit. Now stop being a chicken and get in the damned box.

-"Your child's name in the language of my people. It's a prayer leaf and we believe if you keep this with you, your child will always come home to you." That's really beautiful.

-"Can I borrow your gun?" *facepalm* Well, she's just being practical, really.

-"- 'cause I've got a feeling you're gonna keep talking." And she has been imprisoned for over 9 months and they are threatening to take her baby. Cranky is understandable.

-Rather lax military operation if people can skip out on mandatory bloodthirst-raising rallies to present handicrafts to their bait/prisoners.

-Oh great idea, reveal the face of the headless monks. I detect a mass morale check about to be forced here.

-"Papal Mainframe herself." The more detail we get on the workings of this particular culture, the more I want to know about it and how it started.

-OH GOD THEIR NECKS ARE TWISTED OFF LIKE BALLOONS! DDD-:

-HI DOCTOR! Yeah, figures hooded NPCS = how the heroes get in, and that would probably be why the papal mainframe gave the order to reveal the monks.

-"Please point a gun at me if it helps you relax." You know, that probably could go on a t-shirt, but really really shouldn't. XD

-OOO, force swords!

-I like Madame Vastra and her hench-person Jenny. If they survive this, they can show up again anytime.

-"Amelia Pond, get your coat." Hee!

-Oh awesome! Darkness, and now they can't know which monk is him and they daren't shoot and can't remove the hoods or will be killed. I approve of this strategy.

-Well, except there's always some moron who shoots anyway and triggers the massacre.

-Monks also have surprisingly noisy energy bolts. Are they Sith monks?

-Aw. Madame Vastra and Jenny have a canon relationship. Aw. Now one of them is doomed.

-"I don't know why you put up with me. *giant innuendo attack*"/"*smirk*" ...*facepalm*

-"The Doctor is trying to make fools of us." Ya kind of did it to yourselves.

-Chanting "We are not fools" is just thumbing your nose at fate, you know that, right?

-OH HI SILURIAN ARMY! And the monk-aligned army is all handily disarmed now. So yeah, fools.

-Good caper music!

-Along with the Sontaran, a Judoon. That must've been a fun Tardis ride.

-"Danny Boy to the Doctor." Who the hell is Danny Boy, my memory is shot. No wait, he was the guy in the fifth series episode with the Rainbow Daleks.

-"Bring me the child." Just in case the eyepatch fooled anyone into thinking she'd be all sunshine and puppies like Nick Fury.

-"The Doctor must think he's winning until the trap closes." Yep, I was wondering about that other shoe floating in the air there. It was seeming a little easy. Also I guess Melody was in a different room than Amy or there would have been a hell of a fight just then.

-"No." HI RORY!!!!

-OH HI SPACE PIRATE GUY FROM THAT OTHER THING, AND THE KID. I'm starting to recognize some of these now.

-"Run away[....]And when people come to you and ask if trying to get to me through the people I love is in any way a good idea, I want you to tell them your name." Oooooooo....

-"Oh look, I'm angry, that's new." No it really isn't, you just expressed it differently before.

-"Good men don't need rules."/"Today is not the day to find out why I have so many." OOOOO. I still think [Possible future spoiler based on events in original series]since his Valeyard regeneration is coming that this darkness bubbling under is part of that, and that is going to increase before the Valeyard schism occurs. I don't know which is scarier, though. The Valeyard, being all of the Doctor's darkness, or the Doctor with no darkness in him at all, facing the stuff he's been facing in the past few seasons. Anyway.

-"Now, Mrs. Williams, that is never gonna happen." RRYY!!! \o/

-"Oh god I was gonna be cool." I'LL JUST BE OVER HERE FLAILING ALL OVER RORY NOW, OKAY?

-The Doctor talking to the baby worked in organically by having half the conversation like that worked well. Yeah I'd heard about the Doctor speaking baby too.

-"Big milk thing." Heeee!

-"My friend, you have never risen higher." And Rory's face goes, "OH SHIT."

-"I have gene-spliced myself for all nursing duties. I can produce magnificent quantities of lactic fluid!" Oh god. XD Well, Sontarans are very mission oriented like that. Give them a job, even if it's a punishment, and they will do everything they possibly can to excel at it for the glory of the Sontaran Empire.

-"It's my cot." So... wait. Did he bring it with him when he stole/was stolen by the Tardis, or did he pick it up from storage on one of the times he was back on Gallifrey and why? Did he save it before the end of the Time War? I don't know anyone who keeps their old crib hanging around, although one of the chairs in my place is supposed to be the rocker mom got when she had me so *shrug*

-Human and Time Lord. *facepalm* There was a thing that explains this, right? Uh, or maybe it'll get explained later? My memory is messed up.

-"He's not a warrior."/"Then why is he called the Doctor?" Seriously, I want to know about this culture's philosophical roots where Doctor = warrior.

-Uh, guys, you can move the cot back into the Tardis you know.

-Prolonged exposure to the Time Vortex over billions of years, okay, good to know. But that shouldn't have been an issue no matter how long actual pregnant Amy was even on the Tardis.

-"Could she regenerate?" Well, according to 6.02...

-"That's all humany private stuff, they don't put up a balloon or anything."

-Wait, was she pregnant when she went into the Pandorica?

-Ah, never mind. Well, if all it takes to make new Time Lords is conception on a Tardis in flight, the species can repopulate in no time. Just loan the Tardis to Captain Jack for a week. *facepalm*

-War against the Doctor? Oh dear.

-"Oh dear god, that's the attack prayer!" Pfffft!

-"No offense to the others but you let them all die first, okay?" Amy's really ruthless when she's protecting her family.

-"I'm friends to the monks, they know me!" Um. Yeah. Wouldn't count on it.

-Oh! So that beheading zombie thing doesn't require any ceremony at all. Good to know.

-Fooling you twice the same way. Face in the- Oh shit. Ay and the baby are Gangers. Wait, what?

-Great poem. Love it.

-"Night will fall and the Darkness will rise" and there goes my head straight sideways into Susan Cooper crossovers. O.o

-Baby was a Flesh!Baby. Oh. THAT WAS FUCKING DISTURBING AND NEEDS TO NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. DDD-:

-"I'd often dreamed of dying in combat. I'm not enjoying it as much as I'd hoped." Very few do.

-"Rory. I'm a nurse." So's Rory, dude, and he kicks all kinds of ass. You know, I don't know if there's been much in the way of kick ass nurses in genre fiction before. More would be even cooler.

-"We ran, you and me." Heh. Kind of sneaky. He could say that to practically anyone he's known during a recent crisis situation for more than a minute.

-People wounded and dying et cetera, and again TARDIS MEDICAL BAY? Although it might be behind a forcefield right now so that's a good reason not to haul the injured all back in there.

-"WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU TODAY?!" Ohh, ow.

-"Word for a healer and wise man. We get that word from you, you know." *boggle check* OKAY THEN. O.o Not latin for teacher then, though I suppose Latin got it from somewhere.

-"Who are you?" About time someone asked River that and got an answer. Though it's going to make things a little awkward.

-"Oh look, your cot." Pffft.

-"Can't you read?" Oh, okay. The bit on the side there, that's the Doctor's name isn't it? Big secret or whatever, so that would be why he took his crib with him. Unless maybe Susan his granddaughter was in it at the tie which is another possibility. Not what River's telling him to read though.

-Giggly Eleven who isn't about to go over and say anything about who River is to Rory and Amy yet, or at least until he gets the baby back. Bad form to meet your girlfriend's parents when your girlfriend is a newborn in the clutches of big evil whatever.

-Oh great. Leave them all there. How are they supposed to get home?

-"Except they don't have a word for pond." Hehehehe. Fair enough.

-"It's me. I'm Melody. I'm your daughter." Aaaaand mass boggle check. Followed by 'and what exactly are you doing spending so much time in jail young lady?'



Doctor Who 6.08 - "Let's Kill Hitler"

-WHEAT! CROP CIRCLES! Could drive slower when making them though if you want to be precise.

-Mel their best mate who we haven't even heard mentioned before... I'm thinking something like the Adam episode of Torchwood now. *side-eyes*

-"What the hell, let's kill Hitler." Heeeeee.

-Funny though how the crop circle made the front page and not the police pursuit that drove all over it about two minutes after the photo with the line driven through it was taken.

-OH HAI WEE AMY AND RORY!!! Aw, Rory.

-"How have I got Rory?"/"O.O ...Yeah, how's she got me? >.>" Pfft.

-"I'm not gay."/"Yes you are!" *facepalm*

-Nice edit with the thrown Tardis model.

-"You've shot it!" Um, NO? Guns don't work on the Tardis. Unless that's broken somewhere along the way or was only temporary. Still, nu uh.

-"You said guns didn't work!" \o/ Okay I feel a bit better, it's just the Tardis going weird momentarily.

-"Clever lie." ...yeah, not so much. Must have busted somewhere along the line and he's covering up that he never got round to repairing it. *handwave* Getting right on that would be a great idea.

-That noisy neck rotation is not stealthy. I should know.

-"Your existence will continue." A Dalek with a better voice mod?

-Hee! Miniature people in a human spy ship. Cool. They need a better way to control their security system (antibodies!) though, that wristband is just asking for trouble.

-"Welcome. You will experience tingling and then Death." Well as long as there's tingling first I suppose.

-HEE! EVERYONE'S KILLING HITLER TODAY! \o/

-Eleven's long coat is new there, isn't it?

-Hitler: "I think you have just saved my life." Oh shit faces commencing now.

-RORY PUNCHING HITLER! \o/ RORY PUTTING HITLER IN THE CUPBOARD which has bookshelves that look like secret doors... Just saying.

-Faint and feint do sound exactly alike in most spoken English. Heehee.

-"Biggest war criminal ever." Thought they were talking about the Doctor, what with the Time War etc, but then River, which actually caught me by surprise, even with the "Mel", but I got distracted by the "Adam" possibility and also I ran out of jammy dodgers and am not running full speed.

-She grew up with them. And got Amy to reconsider Rory and sort of got them together, which is of course a paradox but at this point if I worry about every paradox, my head will explode, so PFFFt.

-"Spoilers."/"Spoilers? What's spoilers?" Chirpy, just regenerated River is adorable.

-"I'm gonna wear lots of jodhpurs!" ... I have NO idea.

-"Melody Pond, the woman who kills the Doctor." Ah, so confirmation on who's in the spacesuit in 6.01 *nods* Also, looks like the Doctor never saved her from the eyepatch woman, so there goes another hit to his guilt and self-esteem.

-Poison lipstick. *facepalm*

-"Plus she's a woman. Oh shut up I'm dying." *sigh* *headshake*

-"Well, I was on my way to this gay Gypsy bar mitzvah for the disabled when I suddenly thought "Gosh, the Third Reich's a bit rubbish. I think I'll kill the Führer."" Hee. Yep I've seen that line here and there, doesn't make it less awesome.

-"This time let's do the bike too." COOOL. Illogical, irrational and impractical because how does that even work but Coool.

-"No, no, give me someone I like." Oh OW, Eleven.

-HOLY CRAP! ROSE! DONNA! MARTHA! *GLEE* What, no Jack?

-"There must be someone left in the universe I haven't screwed up yet." Oh ow. Eleven, honey. Stop making me want to wrap you in blankets and feed you soup.

-Little Amelia Pond. Aw. And ow.

-Judas Tree poison disables regeneration. Good to know. I'd say if a time travelling species knew about stuff like that they might go around and encourage its extinction, but their enemies would likely have made sure it didn't die out and anyway, time travel, there's always more in the past considering the Time Lords had strict ideas about paradoxes.

-That 32 minutes isn't getting any less...

-"Fish fingers and custard." AWWWWWW!

-"Clues, what kind of clues?" People running away screaming in their underwear. Looks like a clue.

-Robot Amy!

-"I'm trapped inside a giant robot replica of my wife. I'm trying not to see that as a metaphor." Hee! *pats Rory*

-"There was a ray and we were miniaturized." Rory logic wins! \o/

-"I don't know, it's in your head." XD

-"Justice Department Vehicle Tesselator" Is that right? Whatever. WHEEEE!

-She did it "on the orders of the Silence" OH REALLY?

-OMG the blue light mouth thing, World's End *flappy hand* That'd be a messed up crossover.

-"Doctor who?" Oh shut up.

-"Amelia Pond, judgement death machine." *nods*

-Sonic cane. *facepalm* So. Is it the same cane as One's? Because Three's had a laser.

-"Time travel has... Responsibility."/"Hahaha what?" Yeah, that about sums Eleven up right there, doesn't it?

-Religious order, movement, related to the headless monks, no wait, catching up now. I'm low on tea.

-"Silence will fall." The oldest question, hidden in plain sight. ('What is 6X7?' 'Why?' 'What is the Doctor's name? (since I've heard we're going there eventually anyway)')

-"Never run when you're scared. Rule 7." Hm. And what does that say about all the running he does.

-Muddle of "Oh crap, all the things, miniature, squiggle" and I've forgotten what any of that is about already.

-"Doctor says I'm a child of the Tardis." Well shit. That's... a canon threesome with a time machine. Well then. *headdesk*

-Melody has to save him to start undoing her programming obviously.

-"Find River Song." Yep. Inside yourself. Become her.

-Ah, burning out all her regenerations because *handwave* okay sure that works. Still kind of twitchy about Time Lord vs Gallifreyan vs Human hybrid and Time Lord-hood and regenerations just being a thing that happens rather than something achieved through work/effort/years of training/mystical Time Lord thingies, but whatever.

-Er, before you kiss him again, you might want to remove the poison lipstick.

-"Rule one. The Doctor lies." Hm.

-Aw, the brand new blue book of spoilers. Aw.

-Now, did killing him for a bit there end her programming even though she brought him back? Probably? Also, this is the first time their meetings have not run directly inverse to each other, since he'll meet her again before he dies.

-Still suspect, "Oh look it's our best mate Mel who we've never mentioned ever before". Timestream editing?

-"How do people even look for you?"/"Oh Pond, haven't you figured that out?" Well, by Amy's experience, make a big sign somewhere he'll be looking. And be from the UK. Though really... Pond. Heh heh. How do you know where a stone has been thrown into a pond? By tracing back the ripples. Ripples in this case being changes in time and historical events. And hence, why River became an archaeologist. *nods*



Doctor Who 6.09 - "Night Terrors"

-House call. Aw.

(need tea. got tea. nearly out of milk. eek)

-Night Terrors by Mark Gatiss... OH CRAP. O.O

-Oddly intense shot of the old lady's cart...

-Hey! That's Rose's old Apartment building/block of flats/estate thing!

-Shadows of people walking past my bedroom window would freak me out too.

-The assortment of characters in the flats, hee!

-Elevators. Never get into an elevator lift on Doctor Who. Seriously.

-DO NOT GO CLOSER TO THE PILE OF MYSTERIOUSLY MOVING GARBAGE. Could be just a rat but come on!

-And nope, not a rat. Or a very big rat which is in some ways worse.

-"Including pants I suppose." Hee!

-"We're dead. Again." Hee, Rory. Punching bag of fate. *pats*

-1700's with fake things that look kidsy. Hm. Little George is behind all this isn't he?

-Yep. George is putting everyone in the cupboard that scares him. There was a Twilight Zone like this wasn't there? Only the kid was evil.

-The landlord is an asshole.Just in case that wasn't obvious.

-Georges monsters are real because he makes them be real? Hm.

-"You're not from social services are you?" What gave it away? XD

-"Got any jammie dodgers?" *checks* No, dammit, I'm out! Still have tea though.

-BIG FACED DOLL THAT WILL OBVIOUSLY START MOVING ANY SECOND IS SO MUCH NO.

-Poor Alex.*pats* XD

-I was hoping for a sticky end for the landlord and oh look, he got one, yay. Probably temporary considering this is Doctor Who and not Supernatural, but eaten by the grotty carpeting is good.

-"Help me, Bernard!" What's the dog supposed to do?

-"Claire can't have kids." Adopted? Apparently not.

-TURNED INTO A WOODEN DOLL IS SO MUCH WORSE THAN BIG FACED MOVING DOLLS THAT IS JUST WRONG OMG but it couldn't have happened to a better person.

-"I take it all back, panic now." Heeeee.

-"We went into the cupboard." And that's what someone blowing their Sanity check looks like.

-"How can it be bigger in here??"/"More common than you'd think." Hee! Yep, between the closet and the executioner morph-bot Tessathinger and the Tardis, dimensional transcendentalism is really in this season.

-"Just a mirror." GAAAAAAH IN AN EPISODE OR SHOW LIKE THIS NOTHING IS EVER JUST A MIRROR!

-"Let them in, that'll surprise them." UM. NO? O.O

-AMY'S TIMELAPSE HAIR IS A WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL OF CREEPY.

-"I've got to invent a setting for wood, it's embarrassing!" HEEEE!

-GIANT SCISSORS WITH TEETH. Yes, I know they're pinking shears or some variation on them but seriously, GIANT SCISSORS WITH TEETH.

-George is a Tensa. Noted.

-"George, you're the only one who can stop this but you have to believe you're safe." ... Yeah. That's always the trick of it.

-Rejection, being taken away, OMG, trying to be what they want but still being rejected in spite of it. That situation's not generally applicable to great swathes of life at all, now is it. :-/

-"Whatever you are, whatever you do, you're my son.[...] I will never send you away." *misty flailing everywhere for reasons*

-"Was I?"/"Yeah." Hee.

-"Might pop back around puberty mind you. Always a funny time." Oh dear yes.



Doctor Who 6.10 - "The Girl Who Waited"
(...and unconsciousness happened, then an emergency run for jammy dodgers and milk for tea because really)
-It's starting to bug me, when and where did Eleven start wearing that long coat?

-"Planet of the coffee shops." Hee, I'd go there.
-Unexpected blank white rooms are rarely ever good news except to set budgets.
-"Push a button." Nooooooooooooo! O.O Also an anchor and a waterfall are in no way up and down so that is no lift.

-Never let the doors close between you and another party member. Never push unknown alien buttons, never ever push the red button. If this was a D&D game they'd all be dead by now.
-A week? Where do they keep the washroom? And food and water and stuff?
-Anchor and waterfall, slow and fast. Cool. Playing with time.
-No don't go out and back in to red, the time stream will have moved on.

-Red room, no cuts, blue room. QUICK CHANGE ON THE ROOMS IS AWESOME!
-"Sit by the bedside 24 hours and watch them die or sit in here for 24 hours and watch them live." OOOF. Owwwwwwww...
-"Ah, that would be the small act of vandalism alarm." Surprised they don't start going off the second Eleven lands somewhere.

-Rory cam! \o/

-"Warpspeed Death Ride @ Disneyland Klomm." Klomm hasn't done too bad for itself after being stolen and found again then.
-Yeah, don't get shot with the anti-bacterial stuff, there's a lot of good bacteria in a human that needs to live.

-"Secondary delivery systems engaged." GAAAAAAAH NEEDLE GUN FACE.

-Stepping into the cage makes them not see her... It can't be as simple as a Faraday cage can it?

-An all white room with a circle of doors/gates. I've seen this trap in D&D.

-Oooo, Dr. Seuss trees.

-Temporal engine exhaust, not a Faraday cage, of course.

-"I waited." Ow. "You didn't save me." OW.

-"I don't care that you got old, I care that we didn't grow old together." OH RORRRYYYY!! *flappy hands*

-"Sit down Rory." Awww, she named her disarmed robot Rory. Aw. Ow. Heee. Mostly aw.

-"Survive 'cause no one's gonna come for you." Ow. Yeah, this little escapade has really not helped Amy's abandonment issues.

-"How can you have a door without a wall?" DUDE, DON'T TOUCH SHIT!

-"So I have to choose." Owwwww.

-"I swore to protect you. I promised. Oh ow. Rorreeeeee.

-"Then I do not want to travel with you! *throws glasses*" OOOH! O.O Rorrreeeeee again though.

-Amy vs Amy, oh god.

-Stuff about appearance vs personality. "Rory's the most beautiful man I ever met." THIS EPISODE IS GOING TO KILL ME.

-Defying causality is what you do for kicks flying around in the Tardis, doing it for Rory is probably better than that. And also probably worse.

-"I'm gonna blow time apart for you." Really doesn't sound like a good idea but still, :-)

-"Knowledge enables change, especially if bloody-minded, contradictory and completely unpredictable." Ha. Foreshadowing for the end of Series 6 maybe? ;-)

-"Two Amy's" BLINOVITCH GODDAMMIT MOFFAT! Even a name tag or handwavey something about Blinovitch limitation having been eliminated by something blah trans reality jumper cables or whatever. JUST ACKNOWLEDGE IT.

-Reality compensators. He's been doing some mods. And those could explain the lack of Blinovitch but really, at this point I'd just like someone to mention it.

-"Could sustain the paradox." Sure it could. And that's worked SO WELL before.

-"*babbleburst* Come on Rory, it's not rocket science it's just quantum physics!" Hee!!!

-Macarena, really? Oh first kiss. Aw.

-Line-doubling! Love that, although this is less impressive than the stuff in midnight because this is obviously done in post being Amy and Amy and in Midnight it was the actors doing it directly which is awesome.

-Future Amy is a badass, JSYK.

-"Go, I've got your back." Yeah, it had to happen.

-"I lied." No two Amys. Of course. Sucks but yeah.

-"Your choice." Oh fucking ow. So. The Amy who lived through 36 years of Hell or the one who got rescued and spared. Who they would have to pitch out of the Tardis to become Future Amy if they let Future Amy in. The answers obvious when you think about it, but emotions are hell on the thinking, and just because the answer's obvious doesn't mean it doesn't hurt.

-"This isn't fair. You're turning me into you." OHHHHH THAT HAD TO HIT HARD. OW.

-Hands on the window, oh god.

-*flappy* Oh Rorreee...

-"If you love me don't let me in." OH AMY!!! *flailing everywhere*

-"The days I can't have. Take them please. I'm giving you my days." *wordless flapping*

-"This is a kindness." OH GOD I was never more right about an episode killing me because *vague emotional hand flapping* Left alone, and kindness, and I just can't.

-Both Amy's did get saved though. Kind of. The Future Amy that Amy will become won't have that experience. But experience makes a person, so... Hm. But... There was a kind of moment in the door room of Amy knowing something that Future Amy knew, wasn't there? A sort of mental sharing maybe? So maybe there's some of Future Amy's experience transferred or shared. Don't know.

-"Where is she?" Oh god ow.



Doctor Who 6.11 - "The God Complex"
-Room 214. Clown. O.o
-Lucy Heyward. Last one left. Praise him. Yeah this isn't freaky at all.

-"Something must have pulled us off course." And oddly enough you've ended up where you need to be again.

-Fears. Oh god.

-"Never threatened with a cello chair leg (wow my sound is muddy) before. No I tell a lie." He's really been doing that a lot.

-"With regret, you're fired."/"What?" Heeeee!

-"We're lining all the highways with trees so invading forces can march in the shade. Nice for them." Heeeee.

-What's up with the Rubik's Cube...?

-Laughing puppets falling silent and turning to look gaaaaaaah/

-"Gottle o'geer, gottle o'geer" given the contexts I've heard that in now, I don't think I'll ever not find it unsettling.

-"Here comes a chopper to chop of your head. Chop, chop, chop." Sure, hotel full of nightmares and a wannabe god who wants to cook his vics in fear before eating them. Why not bring in your own creepy guy with you, tied to a chair.

-Cities in Norway, Earth on a collision course, oh great he's an internet conspiracy nut. He should have a fun room.

-"It's amazing you've come you've come up with a theory even more insane than what's actually happening." Heeeee! Point for Rory.

-Aw, his fear room is people bullying him about his stutter. I was hoping for alien greys and some probing and ballroom dancing but this is far more reasonable.

-LOVE the staircase. As long as I don't need to move furniture up or down it.

(Need tea now must make more)

-Oh, great, ceiling damage, Amy found Lucy's notes and Rory's stopped to tie his shoe next to the obvious trap.

-Yes! Of course! Hide from the roaring thing inside the nightmare rooms! *facepalm*

-Oh crap, Rita's is father issues.

-WEEPING ANGELS! HA!

--"Don't tell him I said that, the smugness would be terrifying." Heee!

-"Everytime the Doctor gets pally with someone I have this overwhelming urge to notify their next of kin." Heeeee, although Rory does have a point.

-"Doctor of cheese-making."/"No, well yes, both." Ha. But is he lying, and why is he lying?

-Sitting next to the recent corpse and all the puppets' eyes are looking towards Eleven. Gaaaaaah.

-"I've tried to live a good life, and that knowledge keeps me sane, despite the monsters and the bonkers rooms." Not like that might apply to anyone we know, hm?

-Sacrifice the guy for the good of the party. I really don't think that will fly in this crowd, Mr. Suddender planet guy.... and nope.

-Howie's face when he's possessed or whatever is... wow. O.o

-"He's going to kill us all, how cool is that!" Uhhh, not really all that cool, no.

-Feeds on fear, fear goes away while he's eating it? but... Hm. Something else.

-This is getting to be a Supernatural episode, practically.

-Why dress Rory as a janitor? The hotel doesn't have staff so it's not a camouflage. *headshake*

-Hey! Fish! Are they the fear-eating monsters and the big thing with horns is a servant or something? They're the first non-party living things we've seen here.

-"Don't talk to the clown!" Heeee!

-Considering this thing or its master built the damned hotel, he could have made sure his horns had clearance everywhere.

-Howie is an eloquent boy when he's out of his mind on nihilism.

-"Who's to say I didn't overpower you?" This scene between Howie and the guy from the surrender planet is quite cool, because Howie trying to convince the guy to follow his culturally mandated instincts and forcing a test of will, and the surrender planet guy did well to keep resisting as long as he did.

-"We are not ripe." *shivers*

-"Bring the fish."/"The fish? Oh, the fish." Seriously, the fish are the real evil things eating fear or whatever, aren't they?

-Amy's room is room 7. Is that the age she was when she first met Eleven? "Nothing. Nothing. I don't know. It was weird. " Hmm. Why do I not believe you?

-Oh hi surrender man. "He overpowered me." He did actually, just with willpower. Still, this won't ever look good to the rest of the party.

-"Why's it up to you to save us?" About a millenium of habit.

-"I brought them here. They'd say it was their choice, but offer a child a suitcase full of sweets and they'll take it. Offer someone all of time and space and they'll take that, too. Which is why you shouldn't. Which is why grown-ups were invented." Eleven has a severe guilt complex. And I think I know what's in his room.

-"Praise him." Yeah, Rita has been a little too calm after spending some quality time in her room.

-Room 11. CLOISTER BELL! "Of course, who else?" Himself? His schism from Series 5? All the people he failed to save?

-That string zing in the soundtrack was straight out of Supernatural, I swear.

-Rita is awesome. Now, the question is, did Eleven actually ever leave his room, or is this going to turn into his nightmare playing out?

-OKAY HANG ON. The dias the bodies are being laid on keeps getting bigger, doesn't it? Like it's making space for corpses as required. As if the dummies watching wasn't creepy enough.

-Eleven breaking things. *winces*

-Now the Rubik's Cube is complete. That has to mean something, it's too random.

-About time they read Lucy's pages. Hm... I'm now starting to wonder if surrender planet guy came with Rita and Howie, or if he's left over from the previous party and sacrificing everyone else to survive. I'm getting Cold Oaks (Supernatural) flashbacks. Or more accurately flashbacks from an old D&D game. If a cleric in a tavern asks you to go help him rescue his previous party from the nearby dungeon, just say no.

-Faith. "All this time I've been telling you to dig deep, I made you expose your faith." Now I'm REALLY wondering if he ever left his nightmare room. Oh and also OW.

-"Praise him." Oh that was sneakily snuck in.

-Don't let faith-compromised Amy fall behind the group! ...yeah crap.

-OH HI WEE AMY!! \o/

-Oh. And he has to try to destroy her faith in him to save her *keymashings everywhere* *flappy everything* ADJGHASKFL! REICHENBACH!!! OMG.

-Rory hanging on the back of the door as it opens, LOL.

-OH HI HOLODECK. I actually wasn't expecting you, silly me.

-"A distant cousin of the Nimon." AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! \o/ ORIGINAL SERIES REFERENCE OF GREAT YAY!!!

-"I wasn't talking about myself." Ouch. Eleven's quite the angst puppy sometimes.

-"Could I have a lift? Just to the nearest galaxy will do." But... his planet's right there, isn't it? Ah. Loss of faith in the surrender system, off to find a new start. Good for him.

-That is an oddly blue house on that street with a very conspicuously blue door.

-"Inside lives a goblin who feeds on indecision." Hahahahaha! XD

-OH and of course the oddly blue house is theirs, hahah.

-"Because you're still breathing." OUCH.

-And he's back to being afraid of damaging people again and going companionless again and that worked out SO well for Ten, didn't it? Oh, well, I suppose there's River.... eeeeeek. o.O




Doctor Who 6.12 - "Closing Time"

-Craig! And Sophie! \o/

-"How could she phone you!?" Heeee!

-Sulfur emissions. Hee. Baby. (Yes, I know the name, not sure of it's significance yet though)

-That's a cybermannish shadow... and yep.

-I ♥ Craig. I may say this a lot.

-Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All. Mum, not-mum, not-mum and peasants. Hm. Someone reincarnated?

-"You've got your noticing face on, I have nightmares about that face." A common sentiment across several galaxies.

-Oh a farewell tour. right, the dying. He hasn't figured a way out yet? Or has he already *eyes coat with new suspicions*

-"I work in a shop now." OMG BWAHAHA

-NAMETAG!

-"Yappy the robot dog, not as much fun as I remember." K9 reference! \o/

-"Oh rubbish, lifts aren't dangerous." Uhhhhmmmm.... I can think of two concrete examples in just the last two series' where they are. Is this more lying, or is there some kind of mental thing happening here where something is making him unconsciously suggest his companions take an unsafe action... because according to the original series, there's something coming up in his next regeneration, and that would explain a hell of a lot.

-"Do I look stupid?" CAN WE KEEP CRAIG?

-"Someone's been using a beam me up Star Trek teleport." *glee for cross-fictional references* You know, the ceiling of that lift looks a bit teleport paddish...

-"Because I love you." *SNORT*

-When you escape from a momentary transport thingy whatever, before you do anything else, CHECK. THE. BABY.

-"You always win, you always survive."/"Those were the days." Oh ow. Eleven!

-"You're my baby."/Shop clerk: *smiles* Oh dear. Assumptions are fun to play with.

-"And then there's that silver rat thing." HEEEE!!! Might want to lead with that next time.

-*eyes silver mannequins suspiciously*

-"Talk to me about ladies wear." *facepalm*

-"I bet you excrete some sort of gas that makes people love you." HA! No, that's Captain Jack.

-"Aliens twice in Colchester." He's got a point.

-I- Just- CAN WE KEEP CRAIG AND ALFIE!!!?

-OH GOD WHY WOULD A CYBERMAT NEED TEETH LIKE THAT? D-:

-"I'm not exactly compatible." Right, human only.

-"You know what to do if he cries."/"...no."/"Me either." To be fair, Eleven will have a far better chance of figuring it out since he speaks baby.

-"Save the tears for later, boyo." Ha. Yeah. *headshake*

-Dude, I just had this discussion with the Winchesters. DON'T leave your badly restrained prisoner alone in an unsecured room!

-AAAAA IT CAN FLY OR JUMP AAAAAH!!

-"I have an app for that." *FACEPALM*

-GET. THE. BABY.

-It's tomorrow. But. Time travel. So it's tomorrow for as long as you want it to be.

-You may want to block up that window you busted in.

-"He always needs someone, he just can't admit it." SERIOUSLY, CAN WE KEEP CRAIG???

-They climbed up, so was the ship buried at the battle of Canary wharf and all the Cyber crew didn't get sucked into the void because they were under a ton of rock?

-Leaving the baby with a random person seems weird, but she was a random person Eleven talked to so... eh.

-"You two need time alone." *facepalm* Whatever works. Though if Craig and Sophie ever shop here after Eleven leaves it could be awkward.

-"Centuries." So not Canary Wharf then.

-UPC SCANNER! Hey, it could be an effective weapon, you never know.

-"I'm not intelligent! You don't want me!" Aw Craig.

-Oh god, Craig. DDDDDDDD-:

-"Emotional subsystems rebooting." AND THAT'S WHEN I SHOUTED YES AND JUMPED OUT OF MY CHAIR AND WENT \o/ GO CRAIG!

-AND EMOTIONAL FEEDBACK THROUGH THE CYBER CONTROLLER STUFF YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

-"I blew them up with love."/"*technobabble* ...yeah love. You blew them up with love." JUST, KEEPING CRAIG PLEASE? ALFIE AND SOPHIE TOO, LOTS OF ROOM IN THE TARDIS!

-"Why are you telling me all this?"/"I don't know." Because you need someone to talk to, idiot.

-His companion. Absolutely, even without a ride in the Tardis.

-Time machine to do renovations and cleaning and using up some of his time and awwww.

-"I hope Sophie won't mind, I'll need these." Oh god, the blue envelopes.

-THE HAT!!!

-"Doctor." HEEEEEEEE!

-OH! The three kids. Aw.

-"You never really escaped us, Melody Pond. We were always coming for you." Gaaaaaaah. Oh and Lake Silencio. *facepalm* And yep, it's River in the astronaut suit.



Doctor Who 6.13 - "The Wedding of River Song"

-2011, steam trains coming out of the Gherkin, balloon cars, pterodactyls, roman chariot, war of the roses, OH HI CHARLES DICKENS! Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill. I DON't know what's going on but i think i like this world.

-Always the same date and time, and the soothsayer is Eleven. And all of time is happening at once. ...Okay, I want novels set in this one second universe.

-Hi Dalek. With a human eye in its eyestalk DDDDD-:

-There's a familiar eyepatch...

-Hee! It the person-ship!

-OH HI MARK GATISS under about nine tons of makeup and appliances and another eyepatch.

-DORIAN'S HEAD! HI!! YAY!

-Eaten by skulls... Mark Gatiss probably loved having a scene like that. I understand he can be quite a grim little spud.

-Beardy wildman soothsayer suits Matt Smith.

-Head in the Tardis!

-TALLY MARK!

-Hm, still point vs fixed point. Very glad I'm taking notes, that will be useful later.

-"All Jack's stag parties." \o/

-Oh. Brigadier. And he gets to influence one last Doctor, to show Eleven that he can run from time as long as he wants to, but time still comes for him through his friends.

(notes get excessively incomprehensible here, will have to rewatch later.)

-EYEPATCH POND.

-"I'm what's wrong. I'm still alive." Eleven honey, I know what you mean but you are seriously killing me.

-Area 51 is in a pyramid in Egypt. I LOVE THIS WORLD!!! \o/

-EyeDrive versus Silence, oh good, someone had to come up with something.

-Both ends of the thing shorting out, yay fine, but why no Blinovitch, because that seems awful Blinovitchy.

-"They're not trapped, they never have been." Heheheh. I like sneaky plots.

-When choosing a technology to attach to your face, make sure it's not one your enemies designed. That should be in the Evil Overlord's handbook, really.

-"If people are dying for me I won't thank you for that Amelia Pond." Ow. And *nods*

-Randomly in notes there is a very large OH RORY! but there doesn't need to be a concrete reason for that really.

-"The man who dies and dies again." Heee!

-"River Song didn't get it all from you, Sweetie." Ooohoo. Yeah, Amy has had some moments like that so I can see it.

-Broadcasting "The Doctor is dying, please help," because she needs to make it stop and not be but can't figure out how yet. And "The sky is full of a million million voices saying yes of course we'll help." Ow.

-"You've decided that the universe is better without you, but the universe doesn't agree." *flappy hands* Oh oh ow. Ow.

-"We got married and had a kid and that's her."/"Okay." Rory. :-)

-If what he whispered was his name, that was awfully short.

-"Kiss the bride." Oh ow. Because that'll unbust the universe. OW.

-"I can remember it so it happened so I did it." Yeah. It was a decision you made and were capable of at the time, and living with that awareness of yourself is yours to cope with.

-Not his name. Yep. "I'm a Ganger" fits, but Eleven would have a hard time accepting Ganger!Himself dying in his stead even if he volunteered, so... something else...

-"Mother-in-law." Yep. And that too, is yours to cope with.

-HA. Oh. The Person-ship. DUUUUUUH. *headdesk*

-"Too big, too noisy, back into the shadow." But shadows run away when you bring even the smallest light into them, so, yeah.

-"The question you've been running from all your life, the question hidden in plain sight. Doctor Who?" ...SON. OF. A. BITCH. *CACKLES* I Figured it would be his name, but oh god that's horrendously cute. Moffat is a smartass. XD

I like Madame Vastra and her hench-person Jenny. If they survive this, they can show up again anytime.

Since they survived the battle and Torchwood is over and Liz Sladen died (sob), so the Sarah Jane Adventures is over, I would be more than happy for them to decide to make a Madame Vastra/Jenny spin off. Any time they want.

They could do. I love their banter and chemistry and the ass kicking and swordplay doesn't hurt. :-)

Oh don't worry I'm having a blast! It's a challenge! :-D

I doubt there will be enough actual real-world linear time between work and needing to sleep and other housey lifey things (oh god I'm having a dishwasher) to get through all of them before the deadline though (I only got through the pre-7 Christmas special tonight what with work and one thing and another, blah), so other contingencies may be necessary that I might email you later about that you can probably guess.

Also, I think I've found Pond Life, so I'll be able to watch that in correct sequence! \o/ Also also iTunes has a lot of the episode prequel things for free download right now, though I can't seem to get it into my head to watch those first and not after, because there's important bits to know in there aren't there? Also also also I may have had a few too many jelly babies for this hour of the night. WHEE!!! \o/
