Karen and the Babes were announced last year as coming to capitals in Australia including Sydney. My friends and I were ecstatic and we all planned to make a day of it. I claimed I would sell my right arm to go. It turns out, I lied. Of course, we shouldn't have trusted The Hub. It seems to have quite a bad reputation within fandom for not really giving a fuck about fandom and just milking collectors for as much money as they can get away with. Now I'm not saying that The Hub's Whoniverse is the first con to rort fans, but it is the first one to annoy me quite this much.

I waited and waited to hear your footsteps )

Spooks 10.1. To quote Big Town All Stars: "That was er, um, well... rather good... wasn't it?" Low expectations. I haz em. They help.

I was pleasantly surprised. It was far better than LKH imo. Also, far better than Gatiss' previous effort with Victory of the Daleks which was the worst episode of s5 imo.

Review under cut :)

Well. It had to happen eventually I suppose. A Moff episode that was less than excellent. Still, RTD had a lot worse in his time, and I'm willing to cut the guy some slack for an episode... review under cut.

where is my mind? )

Well, what has Doctor Who become these days? My Mum summed it up best imo, "If Life on Mars was the thinking man's Doctor Who, Moffat Doctor Who is now the thinking man's Doctor Who."

It seems pretty dead on lj at the moment (probably due to exams) but I am overseas in two days with no internet acess for a month so I will write this review now while I remember it and whoever sees it sees it :)

Overall I liked the episode. Nitpicks and quibbles and meta and general thoughts under the cut.

Also for [livejournal.com profile] squint13 I have created some silly tags to match hers (well not quite).

I've done half of my notes for one entire subject and a 2500 word major history essay which means I can post on lj :) Then its off to fix up a tutorial essay and email it to my tutor, do Walter Benjamin study notes and email my ANZAC/Remembrance Day article. Happy days. Also, I have major sore mouth for no apparent reason (though I'm willing to wager its something to do with getting my wisdom teeth out) and have to get to the dentist.

Sorry for such a late write up flist but this was too good an episode to not rewatch and have a think about. Bloody hell Neil Gaiman. I love you for writing this. This was my favourite episode of s6 so far. Pirates of the Whoniverse was too meh for me and kind of fillerish and the opening two parter is too much of an unknown quantity. The problem with the two parter is that it asked more questions than it answered which means depending on how the episodes are resolved will depend on my enjoyment on future rewatches (but by the way in Moffat I trust).

I haven't enjoyed a Who episode this much since... oh wait... The Big Bang lol. I've noticed that my preferred episodes are always the ones which emphasise the fairy story like quality that Dr Who holds, refers back to previous show canon, and reminds me of just how adventurous, lovable, ludicrous and well silly but endlessly fun this show really is.

Lots of thoughts under the cut and who has River Song spinning around with awesome gun icons? May I have one pretty please (credited of course). It is my bday this week (bats eyelids sweetly).

Well. This series is suddenly Lost and also way scary and dark. I like it. I think :)

I saw someone else do this as a poll at a Who comm and I figure now that I've seen the episodes I can attempt this. ok, so episodes broken down for your reading pleasure...

Excellent (I could watch these forever and never get bored): The Eleventh Hour, The Beast Below, Time of Angels, Flesh and Stone, Vampires in Venice, Vincent and The Doctor, The Pandorica Opens, The Big Bang
Total: 8

Good: (Has the potential to be in excellent on rewatch): Amy's Choice, The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood

Total: 3

Ok: (wouldn't rewatch it unless I really had to): Victory of the Daleks, The Lodger

Total: Two

Basically most perfect New Who season ever? Yes, yes indeed.

I realise I didn't review The Lodger but thats because I was in Melbourne meeting Tim Burton twice and shaking his hand and saying words to him and all, and meeting Brendanpodger and all. And then it was my brother's 18th and I'm going overseas on August 10th for 5 months (where's my panic button and all?) and yeah. The Lodger felt like a filler episode to me anyway. It was fluffy and funny is probably my overall opinion.

Now review (Spoilers...)

Ok guys, I know I havn't reviewed Dr Who since Vampires in Venice but there is a reason. Actually there's a few reasons.

a) I'm going overseas for 5 months which equals lots of stress and organisation and no lj
b) I'm meeting up with online fandom friends next week for the Burton exhibition in Melbourne and have been trying to work out that (Oh fandom friends- some of these guys are really good friends, never mind that I've never met them in person before.)
c) Amy Choice onwards Dr Who has been getting more and more complex with more and more going on and its getting harder for me to have any coherent thoughts after one viewing.

But Vincent and The Doctor was so awesome that I'm writing a review.

I've written 1000 words of my 2000 word essay! Yay? That means I can post here :)

So I realise I haven't blogged at all for Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone or Vampires in Venice... so I'm going to do it now... all at once.

Well that's me done for the moment. Any theories on how this is all going to end?
dweomeroflight: (Default)
This is really only happening for two reasons;

a) because I want to share my master playlist with [livejournal.com profile] blackpearl_phan

and because

b) lets face it. Sometime between last year and this year I became an insane Whovian fan. You know, one of those scary ones, who will probably be a Who fan for life and go around trying to convert the world.

Master Playlist )

I also wanted to talk briefly about The Beast Below and some thoughts I've had about the difference between season five and earlier seasons if anyone cares... lol

What a brilliant pilot episode, everything about this episode ruled, from the performances of both MS and Karen Gillan (already a far more interesting companion than Donna, Rose, Martha), to the cleverness of how the moff introduced us to Amy, to the way he played on our fears about MS taking over from DT to enhance the plot.

The rest under cut links for spoilers.
