Wow! I am SERIOUSLY going to like this show! I already do, actually. In the first hour and a half of this series, I already care about the characters, I understand the basic background, and I want to know more about those equations! The only thing that was a bit distracting was the constant thought in my mind that the Doctor would seriously be bothered by this. And who else thought “Crack in time?! But they’re all closed!!” What has Doctor Who done to me. I can’t watch another show about time travel without referring back to it. It didn’t help that Cathica from The Long Game is one of the Sixers.
I like the family dynamic. I was kinda on edge at the beginning with the idea, because a lot of writers will break up the parents at the beginning just to add interest. I hate that, and it’s refreshing to see a family trying, and parents who still love each other. And Zoe’s ADORABLE.
I’m really looking forward to how the rest of the series progresses. I have a good feeling this won’t be a mid-season flop, but a long-runner. Here’s hoping I’m right.
there are people out there that don’t like that episode? Why! It was amazing, it’s a favorite of mine, it was perfect and sad and happy and just lovely.
I enjoyed it too! It’s not my favorite but it’s definitely up there on the list.
That’s not the reason I don’t like the episode. I’ve said this like a bazillion times in the past like 2 days, but i’ll reiterate!
Basically, I feel (that means this is an opinion guys, get ready) like throughout this episode, the Doctor is very very very out of character.
Not only in leaving Rose and Mickey, but THE TARDIS on this space ship for a person he has known for a day, not knowing if he was going to make it back.
That doesn’t seem a little bit far fetched to anyone? I don’t care who else the Doctor shows interest in. In series 1 he was basically on a date with the Tree lady, but even then he would have never left Rose there, and he hardly knew her. Let alone the TARDIS.
It just doesn’t seem plausible to me.
^ Completely 100% agree. I mean, the fact that he snogs someone is enough to be a tad annoying, but I think most people would’ve gotten over it. It’s the complete disregard for any past connection to his companions and HIS SHIP that irks me. This is the man who not 4 (or 5) episodes later almost has a breakdown because his ship has just fallen into the planet he’s on, with drills all around! He would never risk being completely cut off from something that vital to him. It’s part of his home, the only part he has left, and he’d leave it without making sure he had a way back first?! Not to mention the fact that leaving Rose and Mickey is something he would NEVER do on the simple fact that he knows it’s a crap thing to do! He makes a huge deal about never leaving Rose behind like Sarah Jane in the episode right before, and then takes off with a wink and a strut. Oh, it’s mentioned “a bit,” but he is not as beat up about the whole thing as he should’ve been before learning about the way back. He’s lost a best friend and a good mate, as well as basically part of his being, and he’s considering just settling down. Not upset at taking Rose and Mickey out of their times and stranding them in the future with a ship they can’t fly. Not upset about losing the only part of his world left. It just doesn’t match the Doctor’s outlook. Even Eleven wouldn’t act like that, and Moffat writes for him now.
The Tenth Doctor as written by Moffat? Where do I start?
He’s a nasty liar to his companions. He avoids giving Rose the details about Reinette in a casual way (“became the imaginary friend of a French courtesan”) that to me is far too reminiscent of a bloke hiding that he’s cheating and not wanting to tell the truth. At the beginning of SitL he basically lies to Donna about why they’re there for no reason at all other than so Moffat can delay revealing what’s going on. Compare this to New Earth where yes, he and Rose muck around for a bit before they go to the hospital, but he never outright lies to her.
He’s rather dismissive of Rose in particular in GitF, treating her like Mickey, basically. Like, when he first goes through the fireplace to see Reinette all grown up he tells her to stay behind, whereas the Tenth Doctor I see throughout the rest of s2 seems far more likely to treat jumping through the fireplace as some wonderful adventure and want her to go with him.
He apparently doesn’t understand jealousy, which is why he invited Reinette with him without a second thought (says Moffat in the commentary for GitF). The Doctor? Not understanding jealousy? After fussing over Mickey and Adam and Jack? Sure, sometimes it’s easier to miss that you’re making someone else jealous than it is to realise that you yourself are jealous, but the idea that the Doctor wouldn’t understand jealousy is ridiculous.
He’s stupid. I have no problem with daft!Doctor and I like his little rambles as he figures out whatever’s happening this week, so him taking a few seconds to grasp something isn’t something that should never happen. But when I’m screaming at the TV because I get it and he doesn’t, something is wrong since I’m hugely dense about noticing things. How long does it take him to remember that books/paper are made from trees? I was quite literally shouting at the screen.
He’s inconsistent with how he was in previous episodes. Normally I’d let “squareness gun” go, but the Tenth Doctor is one of the twitchiest about guns I’ve ever seen. Which makes sense – he gets worse after seeing the Master get shot and Jenny probably doesn’t help matters. Suddenly allowing himself to get close to Reinette is something I have difficulty with coming so soon after School Reunion, especially since it’s sped up even more than normal.
He (apparently) makes armies run. He snaps his fingers to open the TARDIS door. Well yes, he can make armies run. Usually towards him, wielding various weapons while he tries to sneak out the window. I’ll give Moffat credit in that the Doctor is an impressive bloke sometimes and can be scary. But he’s also a tremendous dork. The implication seems to be, from SitL/FotD, is that the Doctor isn’t impressive enough as he is. Instead he has to try too hard to be cool.” —

Give me a few bucks and a laptop, and I’ll always find the laziest way to use it.
Just about to start Girl in the Fireplace…gonna try and keep the comments to myself.
And that it would be awesome if you could grow out your arm hair enough to braid it.
It is impossible to be bored in this class.
