Doctor Who Review for The Name of The Doctor.
In this review I rant about how River is just a blackmailer with big hair, the impossibility of Clara, how Wholock is a thing now and how everyone is amazing at acting.
I had a lot of feelings about this episode, way more than I expected. Because to be honest I hated the first 5 minutes, then everything was intense and confusing and then it was over and I just felt devastated and confused. So have this thing that is my thoughts.
It is perfect parts scary and hilarious. So basically it reads exactly like the show. Don’t believe me? Here are some brilliant moments from Chapter 1…
“I never begged for your help,” says Derek. And oh, yep, he’s definitely tipping towards the homicidal side of his very, very limited emotional spectrum. Derek is advancing towards him in slow, deliberately controlled movements that are no less pants-wettingly intimidating but at least give Stiles the courtesy of forewarning.”
And for Scott/Stiles shippers out there…
Scott’s hand is resting on Stiles’ jaw, his eyes closed and nose scrunched up in concentration. Their faces are so close that Stiles starts to go cross-eyed just looking at him, so he sighs and gives in, closes his own eyes and basks in the absence of pain. Scott is the best, even if he has been a little flaky lately. Stiles should send him a fruit basket or an apology cake or something for forgetting how awesome Scott is.
“We don’t need to have The Talk again, do we?” Aaaaand dad’s home.
So what are you waiting for? Go read all it’s awesome in context!
This may have already been pointed out on Tumblr, but a friend of mind just drew my attention to the fact that John Watson’s sister-in-law is named Clara.
Clara was married to Harriet Watson, John’s sister.
Moffat has made an abundance of Sherlock Holmes references in the second half of series 7.
I wonder if by any chance Clara could be, in one of her future her time lines, part of modern day Sherlock?
Perhaps one of those rings she is wearing is an engagement ring?
Either way I have accepted this as my new headcanon.
Names for The Doctor that I have decided I will be okay with are Rumpelstiltskin and John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.
I also got some snazzy new blue suspenders however I am yet to own a blue bow tie and I don’t have the right blue shirt yes but when I do, oh when I do I shall be cosplaying the heck out of blue past time travelling Doctor faster than you can say Gallifrey.
“Can you keep a secret? I’m trying to organize a prison break. I’m looking for, like, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar. Then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out?” – Lost in Translation (2003)
Early release of one of the new paintings for my cinema-inspired solo show, which opens June 7th at Bottleneck Gallery!
Well I certainly know which new Alice painting will be adorning my wall!
