So, once again I seem to be in the minority in that I actually liked the 2-part finale of Series 8. In fact it's one of the few episodes of series 8 that I do like. Overall, I haven't really cared for many episodes since the end of Series 6. The writing has been suffering for a while and I've never really warmed to Clara. Now, The Day of The Doctor was BRILLIANT! It reminded me why I love the show. Instead of using the storyline of that episode and pulling it into Series 8, it's been largely ignored and that's sad.

When Missy revealed who she was, I had another moment like I felt with The Day of the Doctor. I had this huge, stupid grin on my face that just wouldn't go away and I LOVED Doctor Who again!

I'll admit, I do have one major concern with The Master. I don't like the way Steven Moffat has turn the Master into a bat-shit crazy, ultra-evil  asshat. Yes, there was a point to Simm!Master being crazy. The Time Lords messed with him and drove him round-the-twist for their own ends. BUT!!!! After the events in The End of Time and The Master died, when s/he came back that insanity should have been gone!  We should have a Master (Mistress) that is closer to the personality of the original Master (Delgado/Ainley era). That said, I am glad she'll be back again even-though I'm not overly fond of Michelle Gomez. XD


My favorite parts:

Missy: Is everything in order?
The Doctor: Who maintains your heart?
Missy: My heart is maintained by the Doctor.
The Doctor: Doctor who?

*******

The Doctor: Who are you?
Missy: You know how I am. I told you. You felt it. Surely you did?
The Doctor: Two hearts.
Missy: And both of them yours.
The Doctor: You’re a Time Lord.
Missy: Time Lady, please. I’m old-fashioned.
The Doctor: Which Time Lady?
Missy: The one you abandoned, Doctor. The one you left for dead. Didn’t you ever think I’d find my way back?


The Doctor: Who are you?
Missy: Oh, you know who I am. I’m Missy.
The Doctor: Who’s Missy?
Missy: Please, try to keep up. Short for Mistress. Well…I couldn’t very well keep calling myself the Master, now could I?

******

Osgood: Who is she?
The Doctor: You’d never believe me if I told you.
Osgood: Cos I thought she might the Master, regenerated into female form. Your childhood friend, responsible for a number of previous incursions.
The Doctor: That was fairly quick.

*******

The Doctor: I had a friend once. We ran together, when I was little. And I thought we were the same. But when we grew up, we weren’t. Now, she’s trying to tear the world apart and I can’t run fast enough to hold it together. The difference… is this. Pain is a gift. Without the capacity for pain we can’t feel the hurt we inflict.
Danny: Are you telling me, seriously, for real, that you can?
The Doctor: Of course I can.
Danny: Then shame on you, Doctor.
The Doctor: Yes, oh yes.

*******

The Doctor: Thank you. Thank you so much. I really didn’t know. I wasn’t sure. You lose sight sometimes. Thank you! I am not a good man! And I’m not a bad man. I am not a hero. And I’m definitely not a president. And, no, I’m not an officer. Do you know what I am? I… am… an idiot, with a box and a screwdriver. Passing through, helping out, learning. I don’t need an army, I never have, because I’ve got them. Always them. Because love, it’s not an emotion… love is a promise. And he will never hurt her.


******

The Doctor: Of course. The world’s darkest hour. And mine. Where else would you be? Thank you.

*****



Oh, and the smooch between Missy and The Doctor. XD Oh, come on! Even though I've only ever actively shipped Three/Master, I am a Doctor/Master shipper at heart!

Oh!!! And in one of the graveyard scenes if you watch closely in the background there's a Weeping Angel. Likely an unintended consequence of filming in a cemetery, but I squeed a bit anyway.


So, yeah. For now Doctor Who = ♥ ! I fully expect that to change during the next series because I have no faith in Moffat anymore. It's definitely time for some new writers.

Obviously I have Doctor Who on the brain... I was reading through my email and came to an 'Author Alert' from my library for a book called 'The Last Centurion'. My first thought?... Rory!

Hmm... It may have something to do with the fic I just finished reading that I'll be reccing on [livejournal.com profile] epic_recs later today. It features Rory being awesome and 'saving the day' so to speak. :)

We got another cat. Dude started getting lonely after his sister died and we were worried about him, so we got him a friend. Her name is Sophia, we got her from the humane society. She's very friendly and loves attention. She's still a little skittish, but she's adjusting fairly quickly. She came out from hiding the first night we brought her home.


On Monday night we went to see Fast Five. XD I love those movies!!! I will never get tired of seeing this:

See the pretty )

and this is just FANTASTIC:

More Pretty )

Plus, I'm a sucker for car chases. ;D Spoiler )


We managed to find a DSL provider that we could also get home phone service from that wasn't hugely expensive, so I get to keep my fast-ish internet service and I don't have to go back to dial-up!!! YAY!!!!!


Doctor Who:
I have watched The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. They were good episodes. IMO they weren't as OMG PERFECT!!!!1!!1! as a lot of people seem to be saying. And not surprisingly, they pose more questions instead of giving any answers.

I am looking forward to some more new episodes, but I can tell I'm going to get frustrated quickly. This season is going to be very reminiscent of Heroes Season 1. Each week we will be promised answers, only to be faced with new questions.

I  finally sat down an watched Season 5 of Doctor Who. Here are my thoughts. Spoilers if you haven't seen Season 5 yet.



I'm the Doctor... Basically, RUN! )


I should probably mention...  My absolute favorite thing from Season 5 is the montage of the Doctor and the other glimpses of past Doctors that we see a few time through the season. XDXD


So, 'Time Crash' is still my most favorite Doctor Who moment ever.
