I'm outlining a new story right now, one that's been brewing for a while.

One of my MCs is an archaeologist. Her name's Dr Rivers.

This decision may or may not have been influenced by Doctor Who.

(Dr Rivers/Dr River S... see?)

Not helped by the fact that her description in my notes is "Dr Annie Rivers, badass archaeologist".

I've only got myself to blame.

also to be known as The One Written By Richard Curtis.

(Frankly, I'm surprised Hugh Grant didn't show up, he seems to have been in everything else written by RC ever... still, Bill Nighy instead, that'll do.)

And on the subject of 'celebrity' writers for Who, I'm still more excited that Neil Gaiman is doing an episode for Eleven-season-two. Because... *FLAIL*

Anyways...

Spoilers )
trillianastra: (eleven - mind meld)
OK. First proper, non-introductory, episode. As I posted earlier, this episode was a key episode for me to figure out what kind of Doctor this is. (It's written by Moffat too, which is always a plus)

And... oh, boy. Oh, wow. It delivers. In spades. And... um, yeah. Well..

I was flicking through a TV guide today, trying to find out when episode 2 of Doctor Who is on, and I realised something:

I'm actually anticipating this week's episode more than I did The Eleventh Hour. I mean, I had eighteen months to anticipate that, and it was a regeneration episode, and you can't judge a new Doctor properly in the first episode because, in his own words, "he's still cooking".

Don't misunderstand me, The Eleventh Hour was great. But it was a road-test episode. Here's the new Doctor, here's Amy, here's Rory, what are they going to do, here's the Atraxi, etc. It's a bit like the first NuWho series, when we started with "Rose", which was a good episode - but it had a very introductory feel. You didn't really get a good feel for Rose, or Nine, or anything else, until "The End of the World" a week later.

Tonight's episode is going to be the one where we really find out what this Doctor is made of.

Also, the TV guide mentioned one word, one very specific word, that makes me happy.

That word is: STEAMPUNK.

I've been waiting for a little steampunk!Who for a long time... though the new TARDIS interior was a good start, with the typewriter and all the random little gadgets everywhere.

Torchwood fans, take a look at THIS:

http://www.thrfeed.com/2010/01/fox-readying-us-version-of-torchwood-.html



Problems I have with this:

#1. Rusty is involved. The man is a HACK. He needs to be dropped from this right now. (Actually, the whole thing should be dropped, but it's the principal of the thing...)

#2. They're possibly... using the same cast? OK, that's... odd.

#3. THE FACT THAT IT IS HAPPENING IN THE FIRST PLACE. Nobody needs a "new" Torchwood especially for the American audience. AFAIK, lots of Americans watched the first Torchwood. Whose idea was this, anyway? (It was bad enough that they had to "remake" Life on Mars"...)

#4. FOX is making it. I have issues with FOX. They, more than any other network, have a pronounced tendency to mess around with and cancel shows that shouldn't be cancelled or messed with. Why Joss Whedon still makes shows with them, I do not know...

And, just to add insult to injury and rub salt in the wound, there's THIS:

Tranter might try to reboot “Doctor Who” for U.S. audiences while departing “Doctor Who” star David Tennant stars in NBC’s pilot “Rex Is Not Your Lawyer.”


UM, WHAT THE HELL.

DOCTOR WHO DOES NOT NEED REBOOTING. AT ALL. GTFO MY SHOW, MAN.


I am now going to go listen to the Glee soundtrack to calm the rage.

Er.

OK. Part of me just wants to curl up in a ball and cry, still. This is probably not going to be in any sort of sensible order.

ROLL ON SEASON FIVE, PEOPLE!!
trillianastra: (for the win [victor-topher])
Yeah, I haven't been around for the last few days. Christmas and stuff, y'know?

ANYWAY. Said festive occasion proved most satisfactory for me, because when the parents asked what I wanted, I basically gave them a list of books and pointed them in the direction of Amazon. Thus, I got seven of the nine books I asked for, plus other things from the rest of the family.

More importantly, at this point, is my present to myself: a complete seasons-one-through-four boxset of Prison Break that I found in the DVD/music/stuff store marked down to a quarter of the original price. This is the OTHER reason I haven't been online the last few days - I've been marathoning Prison Break. As of last night I've seen everything up to and including 2x04, and I'm seriously addicted (and, okay, so maybe I have a bit of a crush on Lincoln.... maybe).

Also, William Fichtner just showed up as this FBI guy, and I quite like his character too. He's interesting. And has a secret stash of currently unidentified pills hidden in a pen, something that I would quite like to know more about.

Oh, and does anyone know why, exactly, Michael and Lincoln have different last names? I thought they might be half-brothers, but it looks like they have the same mum and the same dad, so... anyone? Explanation? (not if it's spoilery though. NO SPOILERS.)



PS. T-Bag is haunting my brain. *sigh* Always, it has to be the psychos...

PPS. Saw "The End of Time". Went *wibble*. Currently waiting patiently for Part 2 so I can find out exactly how much pain I need to inflict on RTD.

PPPS. SHERLOCK HOLMES. GO SEE. IS AWESOME.

Um, you know in the Doctor Who episode "Journey's End"?

Well, this might be just because I was just watching Dollhouse, but it occurred to me that the memory-wiping thing that the Doctor did to stop Donna's brain from going *asplode* was... kind of similar to the way Actives get wiped. Not in the method, obviously... but in the effect on the brain, if that makes sense.

It just makes me wonder, because Dollhouse is at the point where certain Actives (or one in particular, anyway) are retaining memories *after* being wiped. But then, none of them were involved in any metacrises.

I don't know. It's too late for this kind of thinking, I'm going to bed.

(PS. It's bad that I think Alpha's kinda hot, right? That's got to be a bad thing...)

Meme!

I was listening to some Lady Gaga just now, and a couple of things occurred to me.

#1. "Beautiful, Dirty, Rich" very much makes me think Gossip Girl.

#2. I kind of want to write some sort of fic involving Doctor Who and "Paparazzi". Because the Doctor with a crazy stalker fan would be funny. (C'mon, he's had them before! LINDA, anyone?)

ALSO, the watch-age of Stargate Universe continues. I've pretty much decided my ships now... so far, Young/TJ, Scott/Chloe, Chloe and Eli as friends only, and I'm a bit hesitant to start pairing Rush with anyone. Though I did read this really awesome Rush/Chloe fic in [livejournal.com profile] sgufic.
