kerravonsen: Three penguins around the TARDIS: Adoration of the Penguini (tardis-penguins)
The Timeline of River Song; beautifully edited clipshow of River Song's appearances in chronological order.
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: "Any place. Any time. (but not where you intended)" (tardis-any-place)
I need a Twelfth Doctor icon! Where's a good place to look for one that's freely available?
I kept on thinking that I would make myself one, but I clearly haven't.
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (tardis-blue)
Yes, more Doctor Who.
Tropes are side-stepped, Bill gets to be clever.

Transcript is here

spoilers will be consumed )
kerravonsen: Ninth Doctor: "I'm a Time Lord, I walk in Eternity." (eternity)
Yes, I am behind. I will eventually catch up, I'm certain.
Liked it. Bill was magnificent.
Though I had to turn the volume up to maximum to catch what they were saying, and didn't always succeed.
Transcript here.

Y'know, I would hate to be a companion. But having the Doctor as my own personal tutor? That would be awesome squared. I meant to say that in relation to "The Pilot", but I'm saying it now.
spoilers will fall through thin ice )
kerravonsen: steampunk raygun behind glass: "Use in Emergency" (raygun-emergency)

Mmmm, I liked this one. I like how Bill is sassy in her own Bill way. And again with the non-usual questions.

Transcript is here.

spoilers will be made to smile )

kerravonsen: TARDIS in a field: "Somewhere Else" (tardis-somewhere-else)

Yes, I am behind! I am catching up.

I rather liked this one. Oh boy, this is reminding me why I like Twelve. Very frustrating: there were points at which I couldn't catch more than one word in three of what Bill was saying. Am I going deaf, or did other people have that problem too?

Oooh, I found a transcript! Here! (goes and reads)

spoilers will be pursued to the end of the universe )

kerravonsen: Tenth Doctor, animated, face-palming: *facepalm* (Doc10-facepalm)
I just got a letter addressed to the former owner of this house... who has not lived here for 20 years!!!
Care Australia really needs to update their mailing list.

Doctor Who plotbunny: the Doctor gets hit with an amnesia/regression drug/device/weapon and starts behaving like his previous incarnations (going backwards one by one), to the concern and bewilderment of his companion(s)-du-jour who doesn't know about regeneration.

This plotbunny is free to a good home. (smirk)
kerravonsen: Ninth Doctor, silhuette of autumn leaf: "All things die." (all-things-die)
Seen it now. Well. Um. I'm not entirely sure what to make of that. It does not compare to the previous one; that was sheer genius. It was also much better than the lame stuff that RTD tended to give us as the second part of two-parters (e.g. The End of Time). But between those extremes I'm not really sure where I stand on it.
spoilers will be memory-erased )
I need a Capaldi icon. Pretty please make me one?
kerravonsen: Ninth Doctor, silhuette of autumn leaf: "All things die." (all-things-die)
I watched it again, noticing things I didn't notice the first time around.
spoilers will crumble to dust )
Still please do not discuss "Hell Bent"; I haven't watched it yet (though I intend to, shortly).

I need a Capaldi icon.
kerravonsen: Ninth Doctor, silhuette of autumn leaf: "All things die." (all-things-die)
Now I've watched this one, which from the non-spoilery comments I saw last week, was raveworthy.
And now I understand why.
Oh my oh my oh my oh my.
spoilers will be trapped for eternity )
Please DO NOT discuss the next episode "Hell Bent" here - I haven't seen it yet.
kerravonsen: Second Doctor, face screwed up, hands over ears: "No! Must... resist... spoilers!" (Doc2-resist-spoilers)
From the various reactions of people, I was expecting this to be as bad as Victory of the Daleks. But it wasn't as bad as that.
Mind you, it didn't make sense. The more I think about it, the less sense it makes. It makes even less sense than the Christmas Special, which wasn't supposed to make sense.
spoilers will turn to dust )
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (tardis-blue)
This time I watched them back-to-back.
I liked the second half better than the first half.
spoilers will be kidnapped )
kerravonsen: TARDIS in a field: "Somewhere Else" (tardis-somewhere-else)
Well, I've now seen part 2. I'm... not really sure what I think.
spoilers will be shot )
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: "Any place. Any time. (but not where you intended)" (tardis-any-place)
Yes, this is a belated reaction. And a quick one.
spoilers will be sent to Valhalla )
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: "Any place. Any time. (but not where you intended)" (tardis-any-place)
I'm not sure why I feel a bit meh about this episode... I mean, it wasn't bad, there wasn't anything wrong with it. Maybe it just doesn't live up to the contrast with seeing "The Martian" last night.
spoilers will be drowned )
kerravonsen: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart: monsters, aliens, robots, battles, disasters and being England, it's raining as well (Brig)
Yes, I watched this a week late... so I wouldn't have to wait for part 2. Still going to give my reaction now before I actually see part 2.
spoilers will be drowned )
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (tardis)
Wow.
spoilers will get the sharp end of a pointy stick )
Yes, I'm not being terribly analytical this time, but I did enjoy it.
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (tardis)
Finally saw this. Hmmmmm. This is prompting a bunch of thinky thoughts. That must mean it was good.
spoilers will be exterminated )
Edited to add: I thought this went without saying, but apparently it doesn't: I have not seen "The Witch's Familiar" yet, and I want NO SPOILERS for it!!!!
kerravonsen: The TARDIS: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (tardis)
...that I really must dislike Clara, because I have not read ANY fic with her in it.

Which is kind of sad. I mean, I don't like disliking companions. But I haven't even gone looking for Clara-fic. Haven't wanted to. It's all "meh".

I'm not sure I can ask for recs, because I doubt anyone has written a story which will change my mind about Clara, because people who like Clara won't think anyone needs persuading, and people who dislike Clara won't write stories that put Clara in a good light.

Why do I dislike Clara? I can't get past her lying to the people closest to her (Danny and the Doctor). I read some good meta which kind of explained why Clara lied - that she was under stress, that she felt that she couldn't choose, so she fell back on lying in order not to have to choose between the Doctor and Danny. So, yes, there are reasons. But they are stupid and foolish reasons; if she had been honest, she could have worked something out between the three of them, while instead, she did the dumbest and most hurtful thing possible: she lied. I have no sympathy for her reasons. Instead, I am angry and disappointed. I want to shake her and say "How dare you! How dare you betray those you love by lying to them? How dare you claim to love them at all? For shame!"

Hmmm. I didn't realize I was so angry about it. It obviously hit a nerve.

Not sure what to do about it, either. Suggestions?
