If I had a TARDIS of my own I’d be able to go back and undo the month long silence that I’ve imposed upon you all.
Explanations and insight into the trials and tribulations that have trailed me these past months would make for some um, transfixing reading. We’ll get round to it eventually I’m sure but in the meantime there’s something far more important to talk about. Like oh say, I don’t know, the anticipation and expectations of a certain upcoming 50th anniversary special. A wibbly wobbly, timey wimey bowl of expectations.
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special of course. Ya know, the simulcast episode being broadcast around the world to celebrate the 5o years of absurd British Scifi? The episode that’s going to reunite both versions 10 and 11 of the Doctor—along with some unknown incarnation that is theorized to be a missing link of sorts between 8 and 9 and oh yeah –highlight for Spoilers Tom Baker is rumored to be showing up too. Not entirely a huge surprise given that the episode trailer clearly shows a clip of a Zygon—a foe I don’t believe we’ve seen since Baker’s time. On the other hand though, if the fourth doctor does show up in conjunction with 10 and 11 it ruins MY theory that we’re getting not 10 but “10.5” from the alternate Universe. You aren’t supposed to have doctors cross paths, so I figured it was only logically that this be the AU doctor buuuuut if Baker is on the scene too then I guess we really are abandoning that rule. I was hoping that it was 10.5 since my little romantic heart misses 10/Rose so much. Rose is definitely back though so I’m thinking….
Which makes sense really. Rose is the only companion who commits well, a sort of dalek genocide, to my knowledge. Something no other companion ever shared in common with the Doctor. So okay I get it, I might not get my vicarious smoochies *non-Doctor who quote this time—name it and win my ever lasting affection* because odds are the Rose and 10.5 are NOT crossing universes again. And I suppose that’s okay. I mean there’s only so many times you can do that and to do so might cheapen the heartbreaking beautiful end to that love story. No, not even my year long relationship dieting cynical ass can stop falling in love and getting heartbroken over and over whenever I hear that damn Turin Brakes song now. (If you don’t watch Doctor Who Confidential then you probably don’t realize it but they basically made you feel even more sad/in love with the story and played an extended scene of THAT KISS to the song) Thankfully if I want to snap out of it I just remember that the Doctor does move on and well…he manages to find a woman who realizes the potential of owning a TARDIS.
I’m guessing River Song is one person who will not be making an appearance though. Or Jack Harkness. Still it will be fun to see where this goes, to experience it in the collective fangasming of a theater audience and to watch 10/11 have their little “mine is bigger” battle with their respective screwdrivers. Seriously that is the best part of the trailer and it makes me giggle everytime I see it.
Yeah sorry this post is a bit of nonsensical rubbish isn’t it? I’m a little out of shape on the blogging thing and scrambling to find the words to convey all the things I want to say. I also shouldn’t be writing this at midnight when the wind is howling outside my door. For whose of you who aren’t Doctor Who fans, then I imagine this is all a bit lost on you. Just know that bananas are good, bowties are cool, and be prepared to run… to the best butterscotch cookie recipe I’ve tried to date. So now I have something in common with Rose and the Doctor because I just committed Dalek-cookie genocide. My stomach is the Geneva Convention and it is NOT happy with me. I DO NOT CARE THE COOKIES WERE TOTALLY WORTH IT.
(Yeah I guess you could say I’m a little excited.)
