Finally finished S3 of Dr. Who, watched ep 1 of S4 ...  
Expect a looooooooooooong post in the next week or so commenting on Rose, Martha, Donna, the Rose/Doctor (Nine and Ten!) relationship, Eccleston vs. Tennant, the three season finales, and fandom thought (okay, TWoP -- I know, I know, it's a sickness) that I pretty majorly disagree with.

I know, ooooh, so exciting. How can anyone wait?

Dr. Who
I haven't watched Dr. Who at all, but I can't imagine watching David Tennant in anything on purpose after he was so over the top in Goblet of Fire. My God he was stupid in that!

Re: Dr. Who
Watch the first season. It stars Christopher Eccleston. And, yes, Tennant is goofy at times as the Doctor -- he starts second season, BUT the Doctor IS goofy at times, and he also does the serious, hard-hitting stuff really well. But watch the first season. I actually waited almost two full years before I watched the second without Eccleston because I loved him so, but aside from still preferring Eccleston (I mean, come on! It's Christopher Eccleston!) I actually preferred season two overall. And Tennant won me over to loving him too. (I so have got to make a Rose/Ten icon, I really, really do!!)

Re: Dr. Who
Ah, but that's S3. I think Doomsday and Christmas Invasion has the best Tennant serious Doctor stuff. FoB was well-done, and heart-breaking but he wasn't the Doctor through the angst.

Re: Dr. Who
Well yeah that one isn't so much angsty Doctor, I was more referring to in that one we see him as hard as he can be when he's taking care of them in the end

Aww, thanks. I don't know how long it will. I'm just gonna a'ramble away. I do think I'm going to catch up on all episodes though (I have 6 left to go, plus 'Voyage of the Damned,' but that's with Kylie Minogue so doesn't really matter) and I should be done with them by tomorrow, so sometime this week.

yeah voyage of the damned can be skipped if you're short on time....i'll be interested to hear what you think of it. i was left with a pretty big "huh?"
Arabian: CheerLoganarabian on May 28th, 2008 12:38 pm (UTC)
I'll watch it after what's left. I only have two episodes left. Oh yeah, I'm on a roll.
