- Jenna-Louise Coleman
- 6 episodes this year, a Christmas special (featuring Ms. Coleman’s debut), then 8 in 2013
- Amy and Rory, Episode 5
- Weeping Angels
Honestly, that is all you need to know.
Prepare a shield for your mind, because the series finale of Doctor Who is going to fuck it.
Long and hard.
Like a time vortex thrusting deep into your brains.
- OH MY GOD
- OH MY GOD
- WHY DOCTOR
- WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT
- THERE ARE TWO EPISODES LEFT!
- If you’ve been following the characters since the beginning, this will be one of the most emotional episodes yet, especially towards the end. Get the tissues and the fezzes.
- BUT DOCTOR
- YOU CAN’T JUST DO THAT TO AMY AND RORY!
(See, now you’re confused. What happens to Amy and Rory? You’ll have to watch to find out. See you Americans tonight on BBC America.)
You know what’s not fair? The fact that the show that’s on BBC One before Doctor Who is a bleeding cooking show. Now not only am I going to be freaking out over adventures in time and space, but I’m going to be hungry.
It’s times like this when I wish I had a food-and-water machine like the TARDIS has.
Don’t believe me? Watch The Daleks.
Although the TARDIS also has the kitchens which are far away from the console room, but they’re such a drag to find.
Ignore this fanboyish techno-babble.
- MOFFAT!!! and now, MACRAE!!!
- The “two Amys” effect was done flawlessly.
- I’m just crying… all of the cryings.
- Amy Pond: The action girl of the century. Eat your heart out, Wonder Woman.
- I think they’re starting to play off of the “hipsters in space” a little too well. Examples: the Twitter namedrop, Rory’s glasses, the Doctor’s suspenders being prominently shown. They could have said “Tumblr” instead and the world would have exploded.
- LOL THERE WAS A BOOB JOKE IN THIS EPISODE, LOL.
- Old Karen Gillan is frightening, by the way.
- Did Rory pull a “City Of Death” reference by breaking the Mona Lisa over the Android’s head? By “City Of Death” I mean the 1970s Fourth Doctor episode where the Mona Lisa is stolen. But then again, this is me being a Whovian nerd. Ignore me!
- The emotion in this story is just torturing. This isn’t a kid’s show anymore, all. The Eleventh Doctor’s stories have made the show a straight up sci-fi soap opera. And that’s not a bad thing at all.
Just… there was so much information.
So many… things… happened in this episode.
The… the stuff.
This show jumps the shark so many times that if it were any other show, I would be disappointed. But instead, I’m absolutely delighted.
If you’re watching it tonight on BBC America, prepare to be wrecked emotionally.
I’ve been watching too much TV.
In last night’s dream — and probably the reason for my oversleeping — I was the Doctor and had a bunch of companions. It was in the midst of a zombie outbreak. So while I’m freaking out, some kid dressed up as Captain Jack goes and kills a whole bunch of them while an Amy Pond lookalike screams and hides behind me. I just shine my sonic screwdriver in the zombies’ faces and hope that it works.
We end up by Columbus Avenue and Central Park West. There’s a huge flippin’ zombie battle. The human (or Time Lord) side ends up victorious as we drive the zombies away. We can’t kill all of them, but New York City — and the world — are safe… for now.
Flash forward to Christmas. We’re in the mall doing some shopping. The lights flicker. People start running all frantic around the place. Me and my companions huddle together, ready to take down some zombie ass.
I feel like I’m telling the future or something here.
