Apologies for the slight lack of posts these past few days!
I’ve been having MAJOR computer issues/a ton of school assignments lately (read all about it here, if you feel like making yourself miserable), and I’ll be running between the Apple store and my dorm for the rest of the day. Right now I have basic access to my files, but literally every single application on my Mac isn’t working correctly except for Firefox. Solid.
Basically, I haven’t had time to post too much (let alone basic access to my files/GIFs), so this is me pretty much apologizing for that/explaining why.
Bear with me until Friday: That’s when I’m done for spring break, and will make it up to you all with tons and tons of new posts!
Oof thank you, haha. The scarf is probably about 10 feet in length, maybe a little less?
Under-appreciated, and under-developed as characters…
(Bowties may be cool, but their character complexity/development wasn’t…)
It would just get wayyyy too crowded, and essentially you’d just have New Who (minus The Doctor) all over again, and then there’s really no point to having the show.
Also, I think having TenToo specifically on a show with Martha and Amy would just be…uncomfortable.
But that’s just me.
My initial reaction was:
But then I thought about how that would be pretty cool…
I mean, I guess in theory it could work…but it would have to be really well done, and it would be kind of impossible to do that without including Rory and Mickey…and Human!Ten. Which I really would oppose, to be honest.
I dunno, I’d say do not want in general, just because I think it would create a rift between Those Companions and Everybody Else, and I’m not a fan of that.
(Also, this is all entirely hypothetical anyway due to the actors’ probable lack of interest in creating a new show like that.)
But, yeah, while it does sound cool, I think that practically it would never work for a plethora of reasons.
Yep, that’s what I figured. :)
My guess is that it’s almost entirely due to marketing.
Because I personally only became a fan of the show in the midst of Series 6 (I started watching around May of last year and got caught up over the summer), I can’t accurately recall any dramatic shift in advertising for the show at all between RTD and Moffat, because I obviously wasn’t watching when the RTD years were new.
But I will say that I only really became aware of the show last year when I started college, and had only vaguely heard of it before my friends got me into it. This is also the first time I ever can recall prominent BBC America ad campaigns (like the LIRR posters), and lots of Doctor Who merch for sale in American stores (some Newbury Comics stores, a chain based in New England, have entire Doctor Who sections now).
So my best guess is that they released the potential of this previously somewhat untapped demographic across the Atlantic, and marketed it like crazy to get Americans interested.
I’d also hazard a guess that setting the climax of Series 6 in present-day America (when literally all of time and space are at your choosing for setting) and giving The Doctor an Americana cowboy hat were definitely not unintentional moves in regard to marketing…
I don’t watch MLP!
But, I’ve seen Doctor Whooves before (which is a much better name than “Time Pony,” which is what someone originally told me he was called), and I think he’s adorable.
No, my eyes just go from green to blue-grey sometimes cause that’s just what they do.
They look really blue in most of that makeup tutorial, but they’re usually quite green in real life/most photos.
But you’ll have GIFs to defend yourself with.
I have this:
- The Doctor is to gain a new companion called Liz. Sources suggest she’s a scientist.
- Becoming stranded on Earth, the Doctor gets a car called Bessie.
- UNIT, who we encountered in the new series in The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky, employ the Doctor as a scientific adviser.
- The Silurians make an appearance.
- There’s an astronaut or two in this series, as well.
- As for boring into the Earth, somebody’s got further than they did in Wales in Series 5…
