A Town Called Mercy

Hello again!

Brilliant episode! loved it! weelll, like i love any Doctor Who episode, really. It was a lot of fun seeing the Doctor in the wild west times. 🙂 not a very good cowboy, but he didn’t do too bad being a marshal. I guess i don’t have much to gab about in this one, it was very fun, i enjoyed the introduction to a new alien race, one that looks human. it made the Doctor seem less strange, since most if not all of the aliens he sees have some sort of quality that’s well, alien, but Jex didn’t, he looked normal other than the marking on his face. 🙂

it was absolutely fantastic seeing the Doctor on a horse! LOVE! it’s so not him, but then everything is but somehow it all works out to be perfect. i mean, fezzes aren’t really him, but it works and becomes a very prominent symbol of the 11th. i also enjoyed the quick “Stetsons are cool” comment.

it was a great episode, like any, although i feel as though there wasn’t much that’s going to be used in the future for the plot, or a place they’ll come back to.  it was a fun filler that had a wonderful ending, the fallen angel (much better than that weeping type).

sorry i don’t have much to say, i enjoyed it, but there’s not really that much, that i can see, that’s really worth writing about.
i’m still pretty new to this whole blogging stuff, so coming up with things to say is a work in progress.

but thanks for reading! cheers!

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

Hello again!
might i say, this episode was brilliant! although it wasn’t mind twisting and maddening i loved it! i don’t have as much to say about this episode as i did with The Asylum of the Daleks, but i might have actually enjoyed this one more. 🙂 i mean really, it’s pretty hard to top, the “gang” made up of Queen Nefertiti, the Ponds and Rory’s father, and Riddel/Lestrade, as i will call him for my love of Sherlock. it was really fun seeing Rupert Graves in such a different role that what he has in Sherlock, he was so great! he was so rude in one spot, then the next thing you know he’s being a fantastic flirt. 🙂 loved it!

i loved watching Brian Williams, Rory’s father, grow up during the show, i could see a lot of Rory in him, very much his dad. 🙂 he was so cute! who carries a trowel in their pocket? and golf balls? really? which brings me to Tricey.

dear, dear, Tricey, oh that triceratop. never thought i’d call a dinosaur cute, but it was!

“How do you start a triceratop?”

the dinosaurs were really fun, although i thought they would be more included in the story –i don’t know how– they seemed to be just background decorations, but still quite fun to see. 🙂 when Tricey died, i thought the Doctor would have done more to try to save it, but he didn’t, but really what could he do?

oh and one more thing, if Queen Nefertit stayed with the big game hunter, wouldn’t that cause something bad to happen to time of something else wibbly-wobbly? just a thought.

actually, i just remembered that there is something that caught my attention in this episode that i think would be a good thing to hold onto for later. because even though this seemed like a filler episode, not Doctor Who episode is really just a filler, there’s always something that connects it to the rest of the story. i have a feeling that this wasn’t the last time we’ll be seeing Queen Nefertiti and Riddel, they might join the “gang” later in the story. but back to the what caught my attention, remember when Amy was watching the data log for the ship, and the Silurian was talking about all of the species thriving, except one wasn’t doing so well… we didn’t hear much after that simply because missing Silurians were more important at the time than a dying species. but what if later that is something important… i’ve learned that nothing in Doctor Who is just in there as a filler with no purpose– especially when Moffat is involved. just a little something to keep in mind, who knows it might not even really have that much influence, it just might be  something like the bees going missing in the fourth series. one never knows with Doctor Who, which is a good reason to keep it in mind.

thanks for reading!

Asylum of the Daleks

Hello there!

first of all, sorry, i didn’t get this out very quickly, i was gone with some family and wasn’t actually able to watch the episode until last night, but my goodness was it a good one!

so much to say! well, well, well, the episode was absolutely brilliant! my mind feels like it’s slowly burning away in madness, maybe this is how Donna would’ve felt if she remembered the Doctor… anywho.

i feel like it’s very important to mention the condition of Amy and Rory’s relationship before anything else, my goodness, i was heart broken at the beginning of the episode, divorce papers, and well lets just say i was dying inside from that whole beginning, even from the minisode when Rory stormed out of the house, i was in panic! “what’s wrong with them!”. as the ep. went on i was really worried, and i felt kinda like the Doctor, trying to figure out what was wrong with them, because really, i love Rory too much, to see him heart broken for too long just kills me.

after Amy lost her bracelet and went under reconstruction i had a horrible pit in my stomach that Moffat would have killed her, but thankfully it was all under control. i can’t even begin to express my happiness when the two made up! so sweet! when the Doctor showed back up to see the two of them together i was half expecting him to throw out the usual, “how do you two breathe?” line. i’m super excited to see how the two of them get along in the rest of the series!

Now that i have vented my happy thoughts about things that are mostly resolved, let’s venture to the insane part of the story.

Oswin.

So if any of you have been even slightly keeping tabs on Doctor Who in the off season, you’ve noticed the new companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman, now how on earth (even though it’s not) is she in the situation she’s in?  being a Dalek, or so it seems.

i have a few different ideas on the answer to this. they say she’s a dalek, BUT daleks don’t have emotions like the Oswin-dalek showed… i don’t think she’s a dalek at all, or if she is, she’s still being changed, slowly emotions are being pulled out of her, to make room for hate (or maybe she’s in the asylum because they can’t pull all of the emotions out of her…). i don’t actually have a specific answer to what she is, but i have some ideas. lets see, first one.

Firstly, did any of you notice that her crashed ship looked like the inside of a dalek’s head? the eye hole, the dome. so maybe she’s a miniature person in a machine much like the one that saved the Doctor from actually dying, it’s far fetched, and probably not what’s going on, but it could be possible…

Secondly,she may not be a dalek in shape, but maybe they attached her to some sort of bonkers brain thing that sends her consciousness into the body of a dalek, (kinda like the movie Avatar) maybe she’s in a coma sort of thing hidden on the planet or even on another planet simply controlling the dalek.

and thirdly, my final idea is that she could be the security system for the asylum. she can hack into the very complicated and difficult dalek equipment, she uses all the system like it’s nothing, erasing information about the Doctor from all the dalek’s memory might even dare to show that she’s an even bigger security system/ computer for all the daleks.

they’re all pretty rough ideas, but all somewhat possible. she may even be a shipwrecked person who was actually a genius that the tried to turn into a dalek, and since the daleks have no need for other emotions other than hate, maybe the scavenging security system snagged the rest of Oswin’s consciousness and tried using it to make the system better, but Oswin overpowered it and unknowingly, became the new system.

another note. the daleks were sacred of her, which might not mean she’s a dalek at all, they feared her, they said that something not dalek was in there. i think there’s a pretty big possibility that she’s still alive and quite human, (cause i don’t think that the Doctor is going to have a dalek as his companion for the season.)

also, last i heard daleks don’t really seem to be the type to like classical music (especially if the Doctor was in it, even if it was just the triangle).

i’m very excited to see what happens with this situation, Moffat is absolutely brilliant! i know that eventually it will all get resolved, but who says that we can’t guess and drive ourselves insane with ideas of what in the universe is going on. 🙂 please feel free to say any ideas you have or any thoughts about mine, comment and even share if you like.  cheers!
