Doctor Who night [Nov. 9th, 2014|08:57 pm]

... Now that was unexpected. Shows that you shouldn't try crossing the road and chatting to your girlfriend on your cellphone at the same time...

...The writers must really want to put Clara through the wringer.

Clara's never seen lava. She obviously hasn't been following the world news...

Interesting that something as high-tech as the TARDIS still has its door lock powered by what looks like a simple Yale key.

"Stop it with the eyes. Don't do that with the eyes. ... How do you do that with your eyes anyway?"

"Well... the TARDIS thinks he's somewhere..."

... I've seen this welcome scene before. In "Beetlejuice".

... It's a Dyson sphere. So where are the People?

"We're here to get your boyfriend back from the dead. So buck up and give me some attitude."

"You're very ... realistic." "Tongues." "Shut up."

"Are you OK?" "No." "Good. There'd be something very wrong with you if you were."

"... You have iPods in the afterlife." "Ipods? We have Steve Jobs."

"What's all that swearing?" "I've got a lot of stuff internalised."

"Who would harvest dead bodies? I feel like I'm missing something obvious" ... and the lift doors close, looking a lot like a Cyberman's face. Might explain why Danny's feeling so cold...

"You're a Time Lord." "A Time Lady, please. I'm old fashioned."

"The Mistress?" "I couldn't very well keep on calling myself the Master, could I?"

... So, halfway through this episode, the Master just seriously snogged the Doctor. Fandom meltdown in 5, 4, 3...

{LAUGH} Do you need the full 5-count for that one? {SMILE}

It sounds like an interesting episode. {Smile}

It was. There's also some odd eschatology going on in that story (and tonight's), which I haven't quite figured out yet if it's serious or just an after-effect of all that Cyberman shenanigans that was going on.
