Doctor Who - The Stolen Earth

This is wishful thinking, supported by fanciful rumours, but did anyone else notice...


The sound of drums there!?? When they contacted everybody, hooked up on the network, it was the Angel Network beat, I swear to God.

There's a silly rumour that the Master is in leagues with Mr. Davros somehow, and, along with the other silly rumour that John Simm had either a) done some 'secret filming' last November or b) had filmed some scenes previously for this finale, I'm just all excited for his possible return? Maybe?

The Doctor's face when he was running towards Rose! The Doctor's face when he turned around and saw her, sheer disbelief. Her sad acknowledgement that he doesn't know she's there too, when they were all united (Children of Time, I like that). Her reactions to Martha were great too, I thought. She wasn't over the top "OMG WHO ARE YOU D:"

Elizabeth Sladen is an amazing actress. And I realise how much I miss Torchwood, sadly. Hariet Jones is NOT Davros OR the Red Dalek, thank heavens!

And the MUSICAL CUES today were delicious!!

"I fleeeeeeeeeeewwwww!" <3

What else. Oh so much. I can't formulate much beyond flailing about hearing the sound of drums beat again. That moment, though, when Donna turns to the Doctor and he, for once, has absolutely no ideas left whatsoever... just completely unable to operate. When Donna realises this, and sobs. That was such a heavy, lonely, long scene. It just felt as stuffy and claustophobic to me as it must have to her.

Omg, David Tennant: "If Rose is there, and she's all you want in the universe, you're desperate to get to her."

I'll be more coherent later with more amazing thoughts I am sure.

also LOL Oh yeah, regeneration! What the heck? I wonder how they're gonna get out of this one. I ASSUME he'll either, um, not regenerate, which will most likely seem really lame, or Some Alternative Thing liiiike I don't know.

David Tennant will regenerate into David Tennant via a timey wimey link with the hand in the jar. THIS. Since they focused on the jar hand again today. This. He was shot in the ARM. haaaa. crack.
The camera made a big point yet again of showing off the hand in the jar he keeps in the TARDIS. Who wants to bet they do some weird time lord DNA mcgubbins and he stays as Tennant BECAUSE his own DNA is already in the TARDIS? Or as an arm replacement? Or something? hmm.

YES. This is EXACTLY what I thought. I'm 99% certain he's not gonna regenerate into someone else (Tennant wouldn't leave yet, he's too much of a fanboy!), and the hand has gotta be there for a reason given how ~look hand in a jaw omg LOOK~ that shot was.

"If Rose is there, and she's all you want in the universe, you're desperate to get to her."

Sounds like the Doctor needs to borrow a compass from a certain pirate, eh?

I'm just afraid that RTD & Co. are pulling the wool over our eyes again. You know how he goes on about, "Oh, no, I hated the older episodes that did-such-and-such with insert-character-here." Then he goes and DOES exactly what he wouldn't. Anyone else notice that pattern?

Oh, he hates multi-Doctor episodes... and then all of a sudden we get Time Crash. Not that it was a huge episode or anything, but still!

I know there's no cast changes at least according to the listings for the finale, but I honestly wouldn't put it past them for the Doctor to actually regenerate properly, into whoever Eleven is. ::nervous:: They already went so far as to hide an episode title until the last possible minute.

Not that I want him to regenerate, mind you. Tennant can stay as the Doctor forever, and I'd be just fine with that. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, ya know?
