ZOMG

Dude.

I hope that sticks. Man, I hope that sticks and they've managed to keep it secret.

And DUDE.

Harriet Jones! Captain Jack! Sarah Jane! Mr Copper's Initiative! Big guns! ZOMG Donna is something new... Bernard Cribbins! Harriet Jones was RIGHT to blow up the Sycorax! MARFA! With a big gun! Rose being ignored, hee. (Only because I expected her to be fawned over.) Rose with Donna's family. Harriet Jones! Daleks and Davros and Time War and stolen planets and disappearing bees and Medusa Cascade and Shadow Proclamation and Judoon and something on your back.

Can it be next week now?

So do I. I mean, wow! Colour me impressed for them keeping it secret.

Bear in mind they've filmed at least one Tennant 'death' scene before and kept it secret - dying in the parallel-universe Racnoss invasion ;)

Oh, don't worry, I'm expecting that it'll turn out to be the whatever the latest version of 'and then they all woke up' is :~D

But if it's not ... I'll be impressed.

I'm sure it'll be a reset, but I really, really want it not to be. So I'm expecting to be slightly disappointed.

OMGWTFBBQ. Just...yes. I cried for Harriet Jones.

Hmmm. Penelope Wilton's last scene was a bit reminiscent of Tracy-Ann Oberman's ;)

Mind you, linking all the phones together in one big network is very similar to the "let's all pray to the Doctor" last season. ;)

Tennant will regenerate as Tennant. It's all prefigured. Martha being cloned. Jenny regenerating as herself. One Donna 'dying' to save another. The Hand very much on display in the Tardis.

I know, I know. Wiggly fingers. There's never a word or image that lacks meaning, that doesn't have a job, they obey all the rules of good telly. Jesus Doctor is the one big problem I have, O HAI RESURRECTION.

"The Lonely God" indeed. And we all had to pray to him in the last season. ;P

I think it's just for Confidential's benefit - they do like their overly literal songs for the soundtrack, so they'll be bringing on the Stone Roses.

Ha! Yes, I do adore the Confidential music choices when I watch it.

They often have me in fits of giggles, but one of the Confidentials for the Human Nature two-parter employed the dubious charms of My Humps. "Check it out!" Um, yes.

But at least the phone thing is SKIENCE rather than, er, bollocks.

And yes, I reckon you're right :S

If it does, that will be the first time ever that I've witnessed a regeneration with literally not a clue that it was coming. I love David Tennant - but losing him is just possibly worth the sheer awesomeness of that experience.

On the other hand, it happened inside the Medusa Cascade - and I fear that makes for a pretty easy way to handwave things away. It's outside of normal time and space - *wibbly-wobbly*, it didn't happen.

Here's hoping, though.

(And PS - great icon!)

And also there was mention made of the bug still (somehow) on Donna's back. What's the betting she'll sacrifice herself to change what happened?
strange_complex
Jun. 28th, 2008 08:46 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's weird, isn't it? Still not sure what to make of that. There is still a lot to find out about Donna.

Jun. 28th, 2008 08:52 pm (UTC)
Didn't she say 'there WAS something on your back'?

Anyway, yes, the Donna sacrifice is a clear given.

I'm betting on Donna's 'sacrifice' not being the fatal variety. I think Ms Piper, on the other hand, is probably going to Continue Working For ITV, as it were ;P

Jun. 29th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah, they've left themselves a few ways to get out of it, so I can't see it sticking, sadly. But it was fabulous to think it might, just for a while...

What the blue person said. Also, we laughed at the Daleks telling Harriet that yes, they knew who she was. Does this make us bad people? I also laughed at the subtitles on Dr. Who Confidential (very clearly NOT done by Caz) transcribing Rose's byname as 'bad wharf'.

And on said Confidential, we clearly saw Noel Clarke at the script readthrough. I reckon that's a Clue, that is.

He's in the big cast pic for next week, along with Camille Coduri, that's been up on the Beeb website for a while.

Jun. 29th, 2008 02:25 pm (UTC)
We laughed at the Daleks too. Made up for the fact that the ID thing was starting to get a tiny bit tired, possibly just because "former Prime Minister" isn't really a helpful way to introduce yourself.

Someone mentioned the "bad wharf" thing on doctorwho too. I'm going to fix it tomorrow (though without telling the bosses there was A MISTAKE, obviously). And then find whoever did it and poke at their ears with a rusty spork (or Rusty's spork) till they can hear again.

While you're at it, find out who subtitled the final of the Apprentice. The "middle eastern music" was clearly the chemical brothers!

Meep. I think I might have been involved in that somewhere - it came in so late about 12 people worked on it. But that bit in particular doesn't sound familiar, thankfully...

and next week's episode is 65 minutes!

wooo!

um. didn't mr tennant sign up for the specials next year, or was I imagining that?

I was wondering whether its going to be Rose doing the 'far far better thing'!

Yup, my thoughts entirely.

"Most faithful companion" out of the ones we have should probably be Sarah Jane, but she won't die. So yeah, probably Rose (or Rose AND Donna?)

Here's a thought -

Most faithful companion....the TARDIS???

Jun. 30th, 2008 11:20 am (UTC)
I saw someone suggest that yesterday. I am in denial. They can't have Who without the Tardis.

Well, that's what we got in the Pertwee years ....
theealex
Jun. 30th, 2008 03:17 pm (UTC)
A TARDIS that's 'just' a machine again? Dumping this 'sentience' nonsense they've been pushing during the last few years?

Anyway, I've a fairly good idea of who's for the chop, and I'm just going to wait til next week rather than speculate :)
pickwick
Jun. 30th, 2008 06:50 pm (UTC)
Oh, I wouldn't mind if it wasn't sentient, as long as it was there, I suppose.

Yeah, ZOMG.

Wonder if next week there'll be a plot?

Plot? Gah. Who needs plot when you have SQUEE?

Hmm...
I remain unconvinced by the squee. Sure, RTD wants to go out in style. He could just have ordered champagne for the wrap party and saved us his personal fanwank, no?

That icon should be MIND, BODY and SOUL. And Rose and Donna should be transposed, i.e. Donna as BODY :) She is Too Damn Hot to die. You can keep the skinny one and the one with the teeth, give me the flame-haired temptress any time ;)

*realises she must dye hair again*

I do not mind Rose being heart, because I think soul and mind are more important. Er, metaphorically, anyway. And yes, I probably have issues :D

I'm not sure how they could make it stick, what with the whole River Song thing....she clearly recognised the 10th Doctor as 'hers'...and if they don't meet with him in that incarnation then he'd never give her the Sonic Screwdriver, and never be able to use that same screwdriver to save her...and I get the feeling that the new production team are sticklers for continuity.

If they *did* decide to have him fully regenerate into a new actor then it's the best kept secret in UK TV.
surliminal
Jun. 29th, 2008 10:19 am (UTC)
No, discussed elsewhere, she never said she'd met Ten, merely that he was "younger". We 've already seen SJS recognise the Dr in a diffeent incarnation (and others).
theealex
Jun. 29th, 2008 10:24 am (UTC)
I'm not going to mention the extensive filming spoilers I just watched then.
pickwick
Jun. 29th, 2008 02:30 pm (UTC)
The River Song thing is going to have to be reset/ stopped happening somehow anyway, because Tennant was never going to be around long enough to have the long relationship with River Song that's implied.

I don't think he will fully regenerate (or only as a Jenny-regeneration), but I'd love it to happen...
theealex
Jun. 29th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
He only has to head off without a companion. They can then have him spend hundreds of years of unscene adventuring before the next episode.....how long did Tom Baker and Romana travel together? Wasn't it meant to be hundreds of years of which we only saw a tiny bit?

As long as he doesn't have a human/short life span companion with him they can easily allow a loooooong period to elapse between episodes.
pickwick
Jun. 30th, 2008 11:21 am (UTC)
Yebbut, she remembered him looking way older. Unless we're going to get a season after he's been off without a companion where Tennant's wearing aged make-up (again), it's not going to fit.
theealex
Jun. 30th, 2008 03:15 pm (UTC)
Didn't she say it was his eyes that seemed younger? Remember Tom Baker didn't 'age' a few hundred years despite the amount of time he was meant to be travelling with Romana.

Also it is important to keep in mind that it is just a TV show ;)
pickwick
Jun. 30th, 2008 06:45 pm (UTC)
I don't remember specifically, so it might just have been his eyes. And I haven't got to Tom Baker in my trawl through Old Who yet, heh!

Also, yes, but the fanwanking is half the fun...
