januar: River Song from Doctor Who ([dw] river song)
I just watched the episode of NCIS that had Alex Kingston guest star. Her character on NCIS was 'a woman with many aliases,' which had me grinning. And I think I may have squeeed when she said the word 'pond.' I definitely rewound so I could hear her say it again.

Seriously, River Song has ruined me for all other roles Alex may play. *shakes fist* *but only a little bit*

Reading pages on TV Tropes, I just discovered that there is a trope that gets its name from the Eleventh Doctor:

Bowties Are Cool.

How awesome is that?

It's time for another Doctor Who Christmas Special! With the power of DVR, I was able to pause and rewind certain parts and actually be a little bit thinky about the episode. Usually I'm not thinky while watching Doctor Who. Any way! Time for The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe )

And now I have to wait until who knows when for new Doctor Who. Boo.

Doctor Who 6x13 - The Wedding of River Song )

And there we have it. At least it's just less than three months until the Christmas Special. If I could survive the break-up of this season, I'm sure I can survive the wait.

Doctor Who 6x10 - The Girl Who Waited )

Only three episodes left. Next week's (which looks interesting), the week after that, and the finale. What big bang (sorry about the pun) are you going to pull off this year, Moff?

Doctor Who has returned! I liked it more than I thought I would back when I learned the title at the mid-season finale.

6x08 - Let's Kill Hitler )

The second half of season six should be interesting.

This morning I woke up with my brain thinking about the Harry Potter/Doctor Who crossover I thought of back at the end of May but have done nothing with.

Unfortunately, my newest idea, which was actually some backstory for the main story, can stand by itself as a Doctor Who story. Where the Doctor and River Song go to the time of King Arthur and Morgan le Fay turns out to be the Rani and the Doctor ends up getting known as Merlin and River is the Lady of the Lake.

Of course, I know nothing about the Rani other than she's a female Time Lord the Doctor goes up against. And, well, I really really really don't need another plot bunny in my head.

That said, I seem to already be looking up info on the Rani and the Lady of the Lake. *facepalms at self*

I decided to have my hand at making a Doctor Who version of an asofterworld.com comic. I'm not completely happy with it, but at least it's not complete rubbish, I hope? Making one using just Paint isn't that easy.

My brother has been playing Tomb Raider the last couple of days.

Of course, since Lara Croft is a British archaeologist who runs around shooting things, that has only given me the desire for Lara and River Song running around together being British archaeologists and shooting things.

Three reasons why the midseason break of Doctor Who won't bother me that much:

One, Neal Caffrey from tonight thru July.

Two, Jack Carter from July thru September.

Three, the Doctor from September to ?.

See the overlaps there?

And to tie it back around, a rec: I Was Only Borrowing Time (I Was Going To Put It Back) by [personal profile] sam_storyteller, a Doctor Who/White Collar crossover.

Finally got around to watching the mid-season finale, after download issues and sound and video not syncing up. So reaction and thoughts and theory time.

6x07 - A Good Man Goes To War )

There were other thoughts, but they've escaped me, so now I'm going to finally start reading reaction posts (I've been avoiding the internet since early on Saturday as to not get spoiled in the slightest). It will be interesting to see how different people react to the episode.

I finally got a master list entry made of my fanfiction. It can be found here.

I've gotten to the point where I can only watch so much Classic Who at a time, especially if it's a really long serial. I started watching "The Monster of Peladon", but had to take a break. Maybe I'll finish it tonight.

A Doctor Who(ish) rec. Which is really a Merlin rec, but it's one where Morgana is a Time Lord (which is AWESOME). Therefore: Indistinguishable From Magic by [personal profile] netgirl_y2k.

Speaking of secret Time Lords, I have this idea of someone who is totally one (a secret time lord, that is), but the hard part it making it work. See, the person is from a world of magic, but there really isn't magic in Doctor Who, just science, so I'm trying to figure out how to explain the magic with science. Obviously I don't want to steal [personal profile] netgirl_y2k's ideas of why there's magic in Camelot. You see my problem?

I might just have to sit down and really really think. And do research. Yay, research.

Alright, now I can go read all the other posts about the episode.

I was watching vids last night, and one of them was to the song "Every You, Every Me" by Placebo.

I'm not sure at what point it was, but something clicked as I was listening to it. Quite possible the "something borrowed, something blue" line. I went back to the beginning of the vid and just listened to the song, not watching the actual vid.

So. If you wanted to do a vid on the relationship between the Doctor and his companions and give it a really bitter feel, this is the song to do it to.

Every You Every Me lyrics )

See? a box I choose; No other box I choose to use = TARDIS. All alone in space and time; There's nothing here but what here's mine; Something borrowed, something blue = again, TARDIS. Plus, Time Lord. And the "every me" is the different Doctors while the "every you" are the companions.

Aaargh, this is one of those times I wish I had any vidding skills at all.

Spent this dreary afternoon being a geek/nerd/dork and figuring out my character's background for the D&D campaign I'm going to be part of. Sadly, there was no gaming today, so I can't tell the DM about my character. Of course, if there had been gaming, I wouldn't have had the time and chance to work on my character, so yay for no gaming?

The posts about tonight's episode of Doctor Who are starting to pop up. I know that last week I said the extra wait wouldn't bother me, but now I'm all curious. I might have to find a way to watch it before BBC America airs it next week. I'll probably still watch it next week when it airs, so don't worry, ratings!

Finally, why do Vienna Teng songs make awesome videos? Because I have not seen a vid to a Vienna Teng song that I have not liked.

Despite watching three Fourth Doctor stories, I'm skipping ahead to the Seventh Doctor one. Mostly because it's 1988. Eighty-eight! I was around then! Well, I was also around for Five and Six, but when you see the Doctor and Ace walking around 1988 Windsor and the CLOTHES and the TAPE DECK, it's all "YES. THAT IS LATE EIGHTIES/EARLY NINETIES. I REMEMBER THAT."

So! Silver Nemesis was the story I watched. Where the Doctor and Ace listen to jazz, Ace wears a FEZ, and three different enemy groups thrive for world domination. )

That... didn't really tell much about the plot. I get more attracted to the little things, can't you tell?

Dalek Thay has a theory on who River Song is.

One shouldn't trust a dalek, buuuut...

I wasn't impressed with last night's Doctor Who. Which means I probably won't be impressed with next week's as well. But I may be wrong about that!

At least that means the two week wait (Memorial Day next weekend will push Doctor Who back a week in America) won't be too bad. For me, anyway.
