DW Quotes from the S4 DVD set  
rynne put up a whole bunch of D/R quotes -- go there now! -- but, oh Julie Gardner, I love you so! This part of these were my two favorites simply because the first highlighted (a) my long-held belief that yes, damnit! Rose LOVED Nine and (b) it's got a little Eccleston plug, and the second one because ... yes, LOOK AT THAT SMILE!!

JG, on Rose in "The Christmas Invasion"
Rose, of course, was suspicious, because she absolutely adored, loved Christopher Eccleston's Doctor. [cut to scene of Rose crying in Jackie's arms in TCI.] So, she had to fall in love with him again ...
JG, re: "The Stolen Earth":
But Russell T Davies is just a bad man. We've waited for so many seasons for Rose to finally find the Doctor--it's that amazing smile, I think, that Billie has, a big close up when she first sees him that kind of says everything.

You know , that one screencap, with the smile...its so real. Billie is such an amazing actress, because ...that's what it looks like, that big silly grin that means you're seeing the love of your life after being apart. maybe after thinking you'd never see them again. THIS is why she is an amazing actress. Shes real. I don't think she's acting, while she's working, I think she IS her character.

Just amazing.
Arabian: Rose_smilearabian on January 17th, 2009 03:14 pm (UTC)
Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. As amazing and brilliant as I think some actors are out there, Billie in that rare group of actors who just make it look so effortless; it never, ever looks like she's acting. Every reaction, every emotion is so real, it doesn't seem scripted, but rather just a natural reaction to the events happening.

She's amazing.

Thanks for the linky! And yes, Rose loved Nine. Piper and Eccleston talked about that in the Season One confidentials too. You have proof!

And that is a beautiful picture. I've run into people being weirdly dismissive of Piper - and I don't get it. The bits of SDoaCG I've watched, I see nothing of Rose. And in Rose, I see nothing of Belle. She deserves all the credit she gets.

Oh, I know that both Piper and Eccleston have said so in the past (as well as Rusty/David/Gardner have said/hinted at), I just love whenever I get yet ANOTHER quote -- and this one REALLY drove it home! There really are Doctor/Rose -- or should I say Ten/Rose? -- fans who persist in saying that Rose didn't love Nine, it was Ten she loved, and they take her not wanting him to regenerate in "The Stolen Earth" as proof of that. To which I say: Bollocks! Rose wanted Ten to change back INTO Nine when he regenerated in "The Parting of the Ways." I think it's a very, very safe bet to say that if she'd known she wouldn't have wanted Nine to regenerate either if she'd known he was going to.

So for me, I just like whenever we get yet another quote that flat-out says yes, Rose loved Nine, damnit!

Oh, that cap! I remember when I first watched it, I know a HUGE smile burst out on my face because you just feel what Rose is feeling.

You really should try and watch all of Secret Diary of a Call Girl; it is AWESOME!! I would love it even if Billie wasn't it, but she really does make it a thousand times better. She's that good. True story, I liked her after watching Doctor Who, but I didn't become OMIGOD!BILLIE!MOST AWESOME!EVER!!! until I watched Secret Diary, then I was completely bowled over. She gets to hit EVERY single note in that show and nails every single one effortlessly, she's amazing, and then that just gave me a further appreciation for her work on Who because it's so different.

I waited for awhile to watch Secret Diary because I thought it would be too weird seeing "Rose" naked, but within seconds ... it's so clear, you're not watching "Rose," you're seeing Belle/Hannah. There is no weirdness, cuz it's not Rose. She completely created such distinct characters; she's just an amazing actress.

Oh that Stolen Earth scene always gets to me and it's all due to Rose's smile, the Doctor's reaction to seeing her, and Donna so happy for them both!!

Oh and I heart Julie Gardner! That is a great quote! :D
Arabian: I ♥ RTDarabian on January 17th, 2009 03:27 pm (UTC)
That smile! I know, it's just so radiant, so incandescent.

I adore RTD, we all know that, but Julie Gardner is SUCH a shipper too, but she doesn't even try and hide it. She's such a fangirl; she's one of us. LOL!

Arabian: Dr Who (9) - Victorianarabian on January 17th, 2009 03:29 pm (UTC)
Seriously, I kid you not, the first twenty times or so I watched that scene, I could NOT not grimace and hiss: "Stupid Dalek!" I just could not do it because I'd get caught up in the emotion even (obviously) knowing it was coming, but still, I'd momentarily block it out and just go all "Stupid Dalek!"

Nine IS love.
Larissa: D/R tSE - heartlarissa_j on January 17th, 2009 02:03 am (UTC)
*sigh*

I love that scene - without the Dalek.
Arabian: Dr Who (10) - Kissarabian on January 17th, 2009 03:31 pm (UTC)
Yup. Just yup. Truly that run was beautiful. You know, I watched Australia -- disclaimer: I LOVED IT!! -- but while watching it, as I mentioned in my review of it, there was a moment similar to that moment in TSE ... and RTD/David and Billie did it better than Baz Lurhman, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. This British sci-fi TV show did that ultra-over-the-top romantic moment better than an ultra-over-the-top epic romantic movie.

True story.
Frances: DW - Doctor/Rosegoldy_dollar on January 17th, 2009 03:26 am (UTC)
Rose loved Nine. There'd be no Doctor/Rose without him! Actually, I think that Rose would be hard-pressed to really differentiate her love between the Doctor's incarnations. She'd probably say that her love deepened for the Doctor overtime, but get quite offended if someone asked her which incarnation she loved more. I think that Ten and Rose got super lucky in that they really clicked with each other, but that doesn't mean the relationship wouldn't have progressed in a similar way if he hadn't regenerated.

And I looooooove that smile. Love it. :D
Arabian: Dr Who (Rose/10/9)arabian on January 17th, 2009 03:40 pm (UTC)
This is what I always say: Rose didn't love Ten more than Nine, time simply passed and since she loved the Doctor, she just grew to love The Doctor more over the course of time.
I think that Ten and Rose got super lucky in that they really clicked with each other, but that doesn't mean the relationship wouldn't have progressed in a similar way if he hadn't regenerated.
Agreed so very much. I still think that RTD is sooooooo lucky that Billie and David did have chemistry (albeit of a different sort -- I've always found the Eccleston/Piper chemistry as hotter, more intense, while Piper/Tennant's is bouncy and happy) because if they hadn't ... oy.

Honestly, as much as I love Ten/Rose and what we got in series two, I will *always* wish that we'd gotten another series with Eccleston as the Doctor (and then, of course, a third series with Billie and then Ten/Rose in series three ... Ten/Martha in series four (with a better actress, sorry Freema), Ten/Donna, TenII/Rose in series five) and then David and RTD would have left. Yeah, that's what I wish. Ah well, if wishes were horses. (What would they do? I've always wondered what exactly that phrase means ...)

And yes, that smile! That smile never fails to make me smile. :D indeed!

BTW, I LOVE your icon, always have.

If wishes were horses...beggers would ride.

I totally agree that it all starts with the Ninth for Rose. Sure the interaction may seem different, but I agree that is just a product of the relationship growing/changing over time.

I am seriously more worried about the production staff leaving, than I am about a new Doctor.
Arabian: I ♥ RTDarabian on January 20th, 2009 10:59 pm (UTC)
I'm not concerned at all about the new Doctor, never have been. If RTD and co. were staying, I'd continue watching with no question. If I could get over losing Eccleston/Nine and accept and love Tennant/Ten, then I have no doubt I'd love (now we know) Smith/Eleven. It's Moffat I can not stand as a writer, whose views I abhor and whose ideas of the Doctor and companions I refuse to sully my perception of the Doctor with ever again. It's because of him that I won't be watching s5. When he's gone, if the show is still around, I'll watch the show again.
Elizabeth: dw_stuffoflegendoutforawalk on January 20th, 2009 11:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah. I am not much of a Moffat fan. I will watch, but I won't feel bad to drop it, if it isn't to my taste.

I don't understand people who don't think Rose loved Nine. It's so clear just from watching that she loves him.

That smile does say everything. I remember the first time I watched that scene I was grinning like a fool and crying at the same time.

Yes. How you can watch series one (especially scenes towards the end ... not to mention, you know the fact that she basically was willing to DIE FOR HIM!!!) and not see that is utterly beyond me.

Best. Smile. Ever.

Julie Gardner is made of so, so much win, and I think we have a lot to thank her for.

I'm in the process of watching the original S2 Confidentials, and I keep pausing and jotting down quotes - I shall post them once I'm done!
Arabian: Rose_smilearabian on January 18th, 2009 08:45 pm (UTC)
Yuppers, Julie Gardner is such an unabashed Doctor/Rose shipper (both Nine AND Ten) that's it's AWESOME!!! (Love your icon, btw.)

Ooh, I can't wait.

You know that reminds me, I'm still waiting for someone (who has access to a large percentage of press, canon, books, confidentials, etc.) to compile a list of all of the pro-Doctor/Rose quotes. 'Twould be lengthy and awesome.

Cheers! I snagged it from userdiapadme</i> a while ago & finally got around to uploading. Julie FTW! It's not just the shippyness I love about her - she seems to be a great producer, and such a kind person with a very clear vision. She knows what works for the show and what doesn't, and she's always made such an effort to protect RTD & his creativity and keep production worries away from him. Gosh, I'm a gushing unatic, but I really am quite a bit in love with her. XD

I have occasionally considered this, but always end up deciding against because this + my OCD = probably not very healthy. ;D
