Finally!! Let's see how many tracks I actually buy this time. I buy only the tracks I like best, unless the cost for said tracks is higher than the price of the whole thing, lol... and the last one I bought whole was series 5... I certainly hope my fave theme from ITFOTN is included (the one that plays when the camera runs up Nelson's column at the beginning, I often have the tune stuck in my head lol, I LOVE it!)

@supermoff I materialised a time capsule exactly around you and saved your life one second before your ship exploded, but do please keep crying.

My brother just died.

His sister didn't. You're very welcome. Put the gun down.

Or what?

Or you might shoot me.Then where will you be?

In charge of your vessel.

You'd starve to death trying to find the light switch. Who are you?

Journey: I'm lieutenant Journey Blue of the Combined Galactic Resistance. I demand you take me back to my command ship, the Aristotle, which is currently located...

No. Hey... not like that.

You WILL take me back to my command ship, which is currently positioned...

No, no. Come on... not like that. Not like that! Get it right!

Will you take me back to my ship? ....... Please?

The Aristotle's the big fella parked in the asteroid belt, yeah?

It's shielded.

More or less...

See, all those years ago, when I began... I was just running. I called myself the Doctor but it was just a name. And then, I went to Skaro. And then I met you lot and I understood who I was. The Doctor was not the Daleks!


*****


Question: Why do we talk out loud when we know..... we're alone.

Conjecture: Because we know we're not.

Evolution perfects survival skills. There are perfect hunters. There is perfect defence.

Question: Why is there no such thing as perfect hiding?

Answer: How would you know?

Logically, if evolution were to perfect a creature whose primary skill were to hide from view, how could you know it existed? It could be with us every second and we would never know. How would you detect it? Even sense it? Except in those moments when, for no clear reason, you choose to speak aloud. What would such a creature want? What would it do? Well...? What would you do?!


*****


What's that in the mirror, or the corner of your eye?

What's that footstep following but never passing by?

Perhaps they're all just waiting. Perhaps when we're all dead.

Out they'll come a-slithering from underneath the bed.


*****


What if the plan is we're blowing up the floor for someone else? What if we're not supposed to make it out alive?

Oh... don't be so pessimistic, it'll affect team morale!

What, and getting us blown up won't?

Only very, very briefly.


*****


I didn't know if I could save her. I couldn't save Quell, I couldn't save Moorhouse. There was a good chance that she'd die too. At which point, I would have just... moved onto the next, and the next... until I beat it. Sometimes, the only choices you have are bad ones, but you still have to choose.


*****


Ah... yes... Doctor, ah herm... this is Coal Hill Year Eight Gifted and Talented Group.

What are the rounds bits for?

Ask your teacher! Come on! Down from there! Hey! Away from the console! Come on, that's an antique! Get away from there! Don't touch that! Aren't any of you struck by the fact that, look, it's bigger on the inside!?

There wasn't a forest. Then there was a forest. Nothing surprises us anymore.


*****


What is it with you, people?! You hear voices, you want to shut them up. The trees come to save you, you want to chop them down!


*****


I don't deserve a friend like you.

Clara I'm terribly sorry, but I'm exactly what you deserve.


*****


You're going to help me?

Well, WHY wouldn't I help you?

Coz of what I just did. I just...

You betrayed me. Betrayed my trust. You betrayed our friendship. You betrayed everything that I've ever stood for. You let me down!

Then why are you helping me?

Why? Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?


*****


There's a horror movie called Alien? That's really offensive. No wonder everybody keeps invading you!


*****


No! No, no, no, no! Line in the sand! Santa Clause does NOT do the scientific explanation!


*****


Doctor! Am I young?

No idea. (Hands her a mirror) Is that any good?

@Malohkeh @The Genie @TheCyberDoctor Challenges DWTV in Evilness @Edoe As far as I'm concerned, people can skip or not skip whatever they like. It's their loss if they miss out, to begin with, not mine. And they'll probably come around to it at some point when they realise there's more to the show. It's like people saying don't skip One, or whoever happened to be their favourite Doctor... I watched everything out of order, so I skipped a lot of stuff at first... and there are some things I have yet to watch at all, though less and less of them, as I slowly get to them.

While I didn't like Horror at Fang Rock, I quite liked the Rutans, so yeah I agree - brig the Rutans back! Let's start a petition lol.


And the Mara. I want the Mara back. Pretty please? Without Tegan.


And, the Tharils, even though they're not technically monsters or villains. Bring the Tharils back, and Romana with them. :P


The Sensorites.


The Yeti (though I guess that would mean The GI is back too... I guess that's possible, the time winds might not have killed him, never know lol)


And Seeds of Doom being one of my favourite classic episode, I'd love to see the Krynoid come back too, though I'm not quite sure what more can be done with it...


In fact, they can bring back just about any monster they want. I'll be fine with most of them. ^^;

@Capaldian @Typo42 "Magic Carrots" @The Dreamer... dreaming about series 9   Okay. I see what you're saying. 


Personally, I don't think I've seen anything else he's been in since. Or anything else Tennant and Smith have been in. Except the first series of Broachurch and I didn't enjoy it at all. But that has more to do with my own tastes than anything.


I don't go see a movie just because a former Doctor Who actor is in it, unless they sound like the sort of thing I enjoy watching. And so far, it hasn't really been the case. I won't go see Terminator or Lost River despite Eleven being my favourite Doctor. I haven't seen Occulus or Guardians of the Galaxy, either. They just don't appeal to me at all.


Oh... I tell a lie... I've seen The Hobbit. McCoy was in that. But I think that's it lol. Or if I have seen any of the others, I didn't know who they were at the time. And I'm definitely planning on seeing Paddington, but not because Capaldi's in it. In fact, I've never seen Capaldi in anything beside Torchwood and Doctor Who. That I know of... though I could be wrong.


Having said that, I'll have to have a look at their careers, maybe there is something in there that will appeal to me and will broaden my knowledge of their talent.

@joe4 @The Dreamer... dreaming about series 9 Sigh...I knew someone was gonna bring that up. Everyone before Seven had BBC accents... He was the last one before the show went off the air, and frankly, his accent was quite mild. They could very well have gone back to a more "traditional" accent and stuck with it when it came back. Had Eccleston used RP and not started him out with his own regional accent, it would have been easy for everyone to fall back on it. They already didn't let Tennant use his own, but at least he used Estuary and not RP...

Okay... now this one is a bit harder coz they're my 2 least favourite of the lot. Sigh... probably the one and only time you'll get tears from me - and those are only tears of frustration, by the way. :P


I hate you!!! :P


P.S.: I voted Ten coz we've seen a wider range of his Doctor and, even if there were moments I didn't like him, there were also lots of moments where he was great.


P.P.S.: You've done the worse you can hope to do on me... Eleven will always get my vote, so that's me sorted for tomorrow. Or whenever his turn comes... if it comes at all... :P

Enjoyed most of Castrovalva, all the Master did was snicker and keep telling Adric "closer boy, I must see" or some such, and that got very repetitive... and I got bored when the girls were endlessly walking through the forest, but the 2nd half was great. :)


I love Earthshock too. And I really liked Mawdryn Undead, though I have never been a fan of Turlough. And seriously, I've never been a boy, but goodness... weren't they too old for that sort of childish behaviour at the school? :P Anyway, I loved the rest of the episode!


As far as Caves of Androzani is concerned, I just grew a bit tired of the muscle flexing from the mercenary guys... bit tedious after a while. I felt it dragged a bit in the middle, but otherwise, good episode, yeah. Five's regeneration is one of my fave regenerations, with Two's and Eight's.


I would add The Awakening (one of my personal favourites!), Snakedance (another fave), The King's Daemons, Frontios, Enlightenment (though I thought the Black Guardian was rubbish, I enjoyed the episodes, lol), and Four to Doomsday.

I know... It puzzles me every time I hear people say the Doctor abandoned Clara there. I wonder if it's because Clara thought she had been abandoned, and they just took her fears at face value, deciding that, if she was so afraid and felt she'd been abandoned, then it must be true, and he really must have (her words to him when he came back "I've been suddenly abandoned!" magnifying that idea, maybe?)

I don't know lol... I've been trying to make sense of it, and it's the only thing I can think of. The scene was done in such a way that we were supposed to think that, I guess. But I don't care what they tried to make us believe... the Doctor, whatever his face, whatever his personality, however abrasive or difficult to understand, will never just walk away to save himself and leave his companion behind. He might pretend to be doing so... But he was always coming back. Clara can take care of herself while he's preparing his plan for crying out loud lol.

Will be needing to re-watch it. I only saw it once a year or 2 ago and I can't remember the whole thing. I seem to remember that I fast forwarded some parts that dragged a bit, though... I am more accustomed to classic now, though... I should give it another chance!


My favourite Tom Baker stories are Seeds of Doom and Terror of the Zygons. I don't really have a favourite Dalek story. Ii really liked Death to the Daleks, but not thanks to the Daleks in it lol - I found their voice cringey, and I think that "I'm losing control" is a stupid thing for the Daleks to say. Not to mention the end, with the Daleks leaving the Doctor on the planet to die - a bit easy to me... as if the Daleks wouldn't exterminate the Doctor on the spot before leaving the planet. I don't think they would take the chance that he might escape. But as a whole, I think it was a really good episode.


But anyway... you've made me want to try Genesis again, lol. :)
