  • You guys should have seen the fan response to River last night.

    When she appeared onscreen for the first time, at least half the theater starting woo-ing and clapping and whistling in appreciation, and anytime she had a sexy one-liner or shot something, the audience went nuts again. They didn’t do this for Eleven or Amy or Rory or anybody else, just River.

    I was actually really surprised by this (and happy about it too, cause I like River!), just because I feel like the bulk of Tumblr posts about her are insanely negative for one reason or another.

    So, in appreciation of River Song, here are some River GIFs:

    What a woman.

    Hooked On Who tonight at the Brattle Theatre!

    Seeing The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon on the big screen in Cambridge with Clara, if you’re in the Boston area, you ought to come too!

    Throwing up more posts later today, but in the meanwhile…

    Who do you think is the most attractive female companion of all time (that means Classic Who as well)?

Doctor Who ‘The Wedding of River Song’ ~ FINALE TEASERS!

It’s a surprisingly simple tale, though told in a clever way. It’s so rich with detail and it’s enormous fun
There is technobabble, but that’s largely a red herring
The teaser looks like it was more expensive than the rest of the “back six” put together. It’s a visual and conceptual delight
It does answer a lot of questions, but some old ones (from Matt Smith’s first series) are still left open, and some new ones are posed
There are many, many glorious special effects sequences
The denouement is bound to cause some debate. If you like the episode, you’ll be able to rationalise it, but if you don’t you’ll be going, “But hang on, in that episode…?” But that’s Doctor Who fandom
You’ll discover a whole new meaning to the phrase “Live Chess” that has nothing to do with Harry Potter
The Doctor wonders if he could be the fifth member of something
Wi-fi comes in handy
There’s the return of an old look for the Doctor
There are some unexpected (truly unexpected) returning characters
There’s a moving tribute to an old friend
The Doctor offers and eye for an eye patch
A big revelation may remind you of Little Britain
There are some peculiar postmen
Somebody’s portrait looks nothing like them
The episode title may not be as much of a red herring as you might think. But then again…
Bow ties are not just cool, they’re useful on occasion
It’s a bit of a gamechanger
The eye patch is explained

"There’s the return of an old look for The Doctor…"
"There are some unexpected (truly unexpected) returning characters…"
"A big revelation may remind you of Little Britain…"
GUYS WHAT IF TOM BAKER IS GONNA BE IN THIS EPISODE.
 
OMGOMGOMGOMGOGMOGMGOMGOGMOGMG.
WHAT IF THE “OLD LOOK” IS THE SCARF. 
IT WOULD CERTAINLY BE UNEXPECTED IF HE CAME BACK. 
HE CURRENTLY NARRATES LITTLE BRITAIN. 
OMGOMGOMGOMG. 
OR WHAT IF IT’S PAUL MCGANN WHO COMES BACK. I ONLY SAY THIS BECAUSE I LOVE THE EIGHTH DOCTOR AND THAT WOULD JUST BE GREAT.
BRB DYING ALL OVER THE PLACE.

    I actually don’t know off the top of my head. Anyone know?

    Dr. Who and the Women
Once I saw this movie poster online, it was really only a matter of time before the above creation was made.
(I am beyond aware that he is “The Doctor” not “Doctor Who” or “Dr. Who,” and that Amy Pond and River Song are Eleven’s companions, not Ten. The joke was just too tempting.)

    That awkward moment when you realize that the Vashta Nerada from Doctor Who and the Space Kook from Scooby-Doo are the same.
