So, I wrote a thing about being a Fangirl. I fear it could lead to more. You have been warned. – Nighthawk

(or: The Fangirl Within)

 

FANBOY or FANGIRL

Definition: A person obsessed with an element of video or electronic culture, such as a game, film, comic, music etc.

A person obsessed with any single subject, celebrity or hobby.

 

Yes, I’m a Fangirl and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I wear that badge with pride and it’s next to the one that says ‘Geek’.  At the age of 32, I’m hardly a girl anymore but Fanwoman doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, does it?  I’m old enough to know better. I have a wonderful boyfriend whom I live with and love dearly, yet there’s something in my brain that won’t allow me to let go of the 14 year old within.  I have been known to make noises that only dogs can hear when shown new pictures of any of my obsessions.  I surround my work desk with pictures, mugs, desktop wallpaper and screensaver all related to said obsessions.  If anyone mentions any of them, my ears can immediately pinpoint their whereabouts in an office of nearly 2000 people.  I will then track them down and demand that they become my best friend, all because they mentioned in passing that they happened to catch the last 10 minutes for an episode of Sherlock last week and quite liked it.  I’m a woman possessed. 

I have a lot to Fangirl about.  My top 6 current Fangirl flail targets are as follows:

–          Jeremy Renner

–          Avengers Assemble

–          Benedict Cumberbatch

–          Sherlock

–          Doctor Who

–          Jon Richardson

These are the 6 that I will flail about the most, but I have others that have been with me for many a year:

–          Take That

–          Jeffrey Dean Morgan

–          Joshua Jackson

–          Angelina Jolie

–          Vin Diesel

–          Lara Croft

–          Hawkeye

–          Judge Dredd

As you can see, I have many, many things that I obsess about. I can be fangirling about at least 5 different things at any one time.  A lot to keep up with, I think you’ll agree.  And it takes up a lot of my time.  It’s amazing how long I can sit in front of a computer screen on various social networking sites just flailing about a certain thing or person. 

It’s expensive too.  Once a certain obsession takes over, I must have EVERYTHING relating to it be it magazines, t-shirts, DVDs, albums, comics, YouTube videos, twitter accounts, EVERYTHING.  And it ain’t cheap.  Whilst most people work to have a nice car, nights out in town, dinner with friends, I work to afford the new DVD boxset, the next cosplay outfit or the latest version of an album.  Some would say that at the age of 32 I should be more concerned about being able to afford a mortgage or a pension but I’m really not.  I go to work every day in a fandom t-shirt, I drop Doctor Who references into conversation everyday whether anyone notices or not, and I get ridiculously overexcited to the point of almost wetting myself when a new TV series of something I love is announced. 

Some may consider my behaviour abnormal. Others may laugh. I don’t care.  I hold all my obsessions very close to my heart.  I call them my babies and will defend them to the death.   

It’s a strange feeling too.  When it comes to a film or TV star say,  The Cumberbeast, its not the same as when I was a hormonal, pubescent 14 year old that wanted Gary Barlow to come and whisk me away, marry me and let me have his babies.  It would seem that the older I get, the more bizarre the feelings have begun.  For example: I look at new pictures of Jeremy Renner and he makes me want to peel my own skin from my face. I want to cry. I want yell at him how much I hate him (which I clearly don’t), punch him in the face and then rip his clothes off and do unspeakable things to him, all at the same time.  If it possible, it’s actually worse than being 14 again.  At least I could blame that on hormones. 

Along with all those feelings, what I actually want for these people more than anything is for them to be happy.  If any of my obsessions get girlfriends or are married, then the Other Halves immediately come under my protective umbrella and whatever defensiveness I feel towards my charge extends to partners and spouses.  If they’re both happy, then I’m happy.  That couple then become my OTP*. Eg: Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington.  I NEVER had those feelings when I was a teenager.  I would spend hours sulking if any of my celebrity crushes was seen out with anyone.  Is it age that makes the desire for them to happy grow and jealousy diminish? 

And where was the internet when I was in my teens?  We had to wait for the next issue of Smash Hits magazine for our fix.  Or, if it was band or singer you loved, then you had to wait patiently for The Chart Show on Saturday morning.  There was no MTV unless you were lucky or rich enough to have a satellite dish.  I remember we used to get a girl at my boarding school to tape things from MTV for us at the weekends when she went home so that we could watch it on Monday evenings.  I still have some of those VHS tapes somewhere of very early Take That footage.  If I was 14 now, I could have the whole world at my fingertips. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and YouTube all with up to the minute information, news and pictures.  Entire websites devoted to the cause.  I’m so jealous of those that are 14/15 years old now.  You don’t know how good you’ve got it! 

Has the internet deepened my Fangirl feelings?  If all the information was not so readily available, would I be so deeply smitten?  Or would it be worse if I had to wait for a weekly magazine or TV show? Is the internet to blame for my flailings? 

So many questions.  Whilst I’ve been writing this, more questions have popped into my head. And I want them all answered.  I feel that this one little rambling of Fangirl musings may just become a whole lot more.

The Guardian confirms today that Doctor Who Confidential axed

‘Tis a sad, sad day indeed.

 

Doctor Who Christmas special revealed as on the Radio Times website (a bit spoilery)

21 Sep

The Radio Times has released some info on the Dcotor Who Christmas Special for 2011.

And Nighthawk had a proper fangirl squeal when she read that none other than BILL BAILEY will be gracing our screens on Christmas Day.

Mr Bailey confirmed his part via Twitter:

RADIO TIMES ARTICLE:

Details of this year’s Doctor Who episode at Christmas have been announced with writer and show runner Steven Moffat saying this will be the “most Christmassy ever” as the Doctor is joined by guest star Claire Skinner from Outnumbered.

“Of all the Doctors, Matt Smith’s is the one that was born for this time of year,” said Moffat. “So it’s the best news possible that he’s heading back down the chimney.”

Skinner says: “I am thrilled to be in Doctor Who playing Madge, who is a bit of a super-mum. It’s a magical part.”

Other famous names joining the special include Alexander Armstrong, Arabella Weir and comedian Bill Bailey, who announced his appearance on Twitter, saying: “Tour done, wine is on, thanks to all who came – back to Blighty to film Doctor Who Christmas special. Onward!”

Moffat revealed just a touch more of what we can expect to see by saying how much he enjoyed writing this episode for Matt Smith: “It’s maybe because it’s so his kind of day. Everything’s bright and shiny, everybody’s having a laugh, and nobody minds if you wear a really stupid hat.”

Spoilers: Moffat promises a Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe-like tale with a forest and an ice villain. Madge and her children are evacuated during the Second World War to a strange house in Dorset where there’s a “mysterious young man in a bow tie, and a big blue parcel is waiting for them under the tree. They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that Time Lord need forgets his debts.”

An interesting theory I read on Tumblr about Doctor Who

30 Aug

Here is the link to the original post:

 

 

 

 

Possibly The Most Important Thing in Let’s Kill Hitler

“I’m just going to put this out there because I’m struggling with it. And it will probably be my focus for awhile, kind of like how something being wrong with Amy stuck with me the whole of part one. 

 

The Doctor’s clothes are probably the most important thing in Let’s Kill Hitler. And I think we should keep an eye on them.

 

First, he starts out with a new coat. I don’t know the significance yet, but I have a feeling his new coat is going to be important. Where did he get it? Why was he wearing it at the start? It disappears later in the episode and he puts on his classic look at the end. 

 

Second, no one seems to care that he just randomly appears in a tuxedo. This is connected to the computer Amelia Pond as well. We hear her say, “fish fingers and custard” to The Doctor. Although, it cannot be the computer that says it. The computer was insistent that it wasn’t Amelia Pond. Also, there isn’t any real way for the interface to make that emotional connection/memory. Lastly, we are conveniently not shown Amelia when it’s said. 

 

So he hears this clue, it clearly has meaning to him. He gets up and goes somewhere in the TARDIS. Next thing we know, he appears in a tuxedo. You know where else he had a tuxedo? Amy and Rory’s wedding. 

 

In Series 5, he is at the wedding and clearly has a red corsage on his chest. Then, it cuts to Amy’s house where The Doctor appears, still in tuxedo, but he is corsage-less. Although, you cans make out a safety pin on his chest. You can also make out the safety pin on his chest in Let’s Kill Hitler. 

 

Lastly, when Amy and Rory catch him in the TARDIS after their wedding he says he was sorry he had to pop off for a bit because he was busy with something. 

 

So, here it is: where did The Doctor go after fish fingers and custard? Was it the wedding? What was he doing when he popped off from their wedding? Where did the corsage go?  We know he had a balloon that was potentially from their wedding, was there something else from the wedding or Amelia’s house that was important?

 

So that is what it’s like in my head right now. You’re welcome.”

 

 

****SPOILERS**** Fish Custard reviews Let’s Kill Hitler ****SPOILERS****

DOCTOR WHO  –  SERIES 6 PT 2- EPISODE 6.8  

LET’S KILL HITLER

 Well, well, well, Mr Moffat has done it again! How the man can cram so much into one episode is beyond me!  And some of the major plot lines seemed to have answered almost as a casual after thought. 

I knew this episode wasn’t going to be a slow one – the series was returning with an episode called Lets Kill Hitler and written by Steven.  It was never going to not be a belter! 

So, we started the episode in a corn field with Amy and Rory driving around in it furiously in a classic brown Mini.  (Wasn’t Rory’s Mini red last time?)  We then find out that they’re making crop circles. Well, not so much crop circles, more like spelling out the Doctor in a field.  The Doctor then appears from the TARDIS in quite a Pertwee-esque new coat and the questioning about Melody begins. And then a best friend of Amy and Rory’s, who we’ve never met before, appears in a Corvette Stingray and threatens the Doctor with a gun before deciding that she wants to go and kill Hitler. 

That was all in the first few minutes. 

Told you this wasn’t going to be a slow episode! 

So next, we’re in Nazi Germany crash landing the TARDIS in Hitler’s office, right before he was about to be killed by a robot manned by tiny people.  Not weird at all!  Rory then gets to punch Hitler. Actually, Rory gets to punch a few more people in this episode which, for me, was brilliant.  It’s nice to see Rory getting some decent screen action as the series goes on.  I always felt that he was a bit of a wasted character until this series.  He’s really coming into his own which i’m liking. Very much. 

Then, one of the biggest plot lines is answered when Melz reveals that she’s been shot and then starts to regenerate.  The penny eventually drops with Amy and they realise that Melz is short for Melody and that she is, in fact, her daughter.  It’s a question that we’ve been asking since the first half of this series – who was the regenerating little girl? Well, now we know.  It was River. Or Melody.  

Whats touching about this plot twist is that while Amy and Rory have been waiting for the Doctor to find Melody, Amy has in fact been to a certain extent, raising Melody all along.  The sequence going from Melz, Rory and Amy as children, then them getting older to the recent past, showed that all along Amy has been looking after Melz.  I liked that touch. 

And so, the River/Melody that we know appears. Except that she’s not the River that we know.  This is River at the beginning.  And she’snotRiveryet, not really.  She looks like River but she’s still Melody.  And she’s here to kill the Doctor.  Now, a big deal was made about who River had killed to be put in the Stormcage and i had my suspicions that it was the Doctor.  But i wasn’t sure.  And then it’s just dropped into this episode quite casually and almost absent mindedly.  It wasn’t made to feel like a bit revelation and that’s testament to Moffat’s writing.

The first thing that River tries to do when she regenerates into Alex Kingston is to kill the Doctor because that whats she’s bee trained to do her whole life.  The Doctor second guesses her each time and manages to out fox her. And then she out foxes him with her trademark lipstick before jumping out of the window to go and rampage around Nazi Germany. Oh River…………. 

The rest of the episode is then spent with the Doctor dying and him trying to convince Melody to help him.  Amy and Rory are get shrunk and transported into the robot that is currently in the form of Amy.  

Following me so far?! 

What I also liked was the turning point of Melody into young River.  She seems to take a certain amount of pleasure from watching the Doctor die and why shouldn’t she?  She’s been trying to track him down to kill him her whole life so why shouldn’t she be a little smug about it.  But when she sees the Doctor trying to crawl towards the TARDIS in order to help Amy and Rory, something clicks in her brain and she realises that despite the fact that he’s dying, he still cares.  Before the Doctor dies, he whispers something in Melody’s ear after telling her to find River Song and give her a message from him.  What did he whisper?  Could it have been his real name? Or is that too much of a stretch at this point? 

Amy then shows Melody who River Song is by ordering the robot to transform into her using the archive files.  As soon as this happens, Melody can see what River means to the Doctor. And to Amy and Rory for that matter and not just because she’s they’re daughter.  Asking if the Doctor is worth it, Melody uses all of her remaining regenerations to bring him back to life.  We then see River in a hospital (Hospital of the Infinite Schism to be precise) bed recovering with the Doctor, Amy and Rory with her.  And we end with the Doctor leaving on her bedside the blue diary that we know River carries around with her before jumping to the year 5123 and River wanting to study Archaeology at theLunaUniversitybecause she’s looking for “a good man.” 

Did anyone else feel totally mind swiped after that episode?  I know it wouldn’t be a slow one but bloody hell Moffat wrote a corker!  The speed and the amount of plot twists and hints that man can squeeze into 45 minutes in amazing! 

One of the most poignant bits for me was when Melody lands the TARDIS to rescue Amy and Rory.  She said she didn’t know how to fly one but the TARDIS told her how.  In a previous episode when asked how she knows how to fly the TARDIS, she said she had a good teacher.  The Doctor looks smug but River informs him that it wasn’t him that taught her because he was busy that day.  Now we know that he was busy dying that day.  And my initial theory about how River knew how to fly the TARDIS was proved right, much to the annoyance of my boyfriend! 

So, all in all, a brilliant episode, fantastically written, fabulously directed and for me, a stand out performance by Matt Smith. And, in true Moffat style, that episode title had pretty much nothing to do with what happened. Brilliant!

 Now, did anyone actually let Hitler out of the cupboard……….?

Fish Custard’s Doctor Who – Series 6 Part 1 Ramblings

26 Aug

So, 1 day before the end of the summer Whoatus and here I am, only just writing up my thoughts on the first part for series 6 of Doctor Who.  My, my, I have been slacking! 

I always meant to write a review for each episode as I watched them but somehow just never got around to it. Now i find myself sat here, staring blankly at my computer screen, with so much to say but no idea how to say it. So, please forgive me if i seem rambling – I’ll get to the point eventually!  I shall only touch on the episodes briefly as i’m sure you have all read in-depth reviews about each one and have watched them more than once. I know I have! 

Let’s start at the beginning with The Impossible Astronaut and Day of The Moon.  I think that deciding to open the series inAmericawas an interesting one from The Moff.  It certainly gave the series opener an epic scale and i think that was the whole point of that decision. The open vistas ofMonumentValleyand views from the Hoover Dam let us know that this series of Doctor Who was by no means going to be a small affair. It let us know that whatever Moffatt had in store of us this series was going to be seriously huge.  And we all had questions after the end of series 5. I for one went and reached all the previous series after I found out about The Silence to see if there were any clues!  The most burning question of last series and this has got to be who River Song is. We all wanted to know and we all had our own opinions. What we did know was that she was married to the Doctor way into the future, and that she was in prison for killing a good man. A very good man. Now, we all immediately thought that it was the Doctor. I know I did. But as series 5 came to an end and series 6 began, I wasn’t so sure.

So who is she? Well, now we all know but I’ll touch on that point again later. 

It was quickly apparent this series that the plot twists and arcs were going to be a lot more complicated that last series but then The Moff is the master of such things.  It was also clear that the speed of this series was going to be a lot faster than the last.  The first 2 episodes, The Impossible Astronaut and Day of The Moon were a lot faster paced than previous series episodes. But i liked that. I almost felt like you were running to keep up, which is what most people travelling with The Doctor must feel like!  The only downside of this fast pace is that I felt I had to watch each episode more than once to take it all in. Not that it was a downside for me – I could watch Doctor Who all day, over and over again!  With the first to episodes of series 6 we had established the 3 main story arcs of this series: The Silence, is Amy pregnant and who the hell killed the Doctor? The other plot lines just slotted in nicely with the main ones. But we all know Moffatt by now and even though they may seem like lesser stories, they’ll all become front and centre somewhere down the line.  

The series continued with Curse of The Black Spot. Some say that this was the lesser of all the episodes in part 1 but I disagree. I can see why people felt that way as after such an epic opening 2 parter set against the vast American backdrop, whatever followed was of course going to feel smaller but by no means less important. Infact, i loved this episode. It had everything you needed for a pirate episode: a pirate ship, moody weather, a mutinous crew, a stow away and, of course, the traditional sea siren and space pirates. And The Doctor got to wear a pirate hat. What more could you ask for?! Having not really thought too much about the Eyepatch Lady, it made me jump when she reappeared and I began to try and work out where she would fit in to the whole series. It was clear by this point that only Amy could see her but who was she and what did she want? Now, if it was me and i was seeing Eyepatch lady for the second or third time and I was travelling with the Doctor, I would have immediately said something. But that’s just me! 

The fourth episode, The Doctor’s Wife, was by far my favourite episode of the series so far.  In fact, I would go as to say it’s my favourite episode of Doctor Who ever. And I’ve seen them all. The reason I loved this episode so much was because the TARDIS finally got an episode all to herself. For me, the TARDIS is the best thing about Doctor Who by far. Don’t get me wrong, I love The Doctor, but for me, it’s always been the TARDIS.  Not only did the TARDIS get her own episode, but Neil Gaimen wrote it and he truly outdid himself. It was funny, sad, heartfelt and lovely. The title of the episode had the internet speculating for weeks about its plot and would it be about River. I’m thankful that it wasn’t. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much watching an episode of Doctor Who and i’m tearing up even now as I write. The feel of this episode was so different to the 3 that we had already seen and I loved that.

What I loved about it the most was that after all the companions the Doctor has ever had, it drove home that not one of them would ever be able to compete with his one true and constant companion – the TARDIS. It was also lovely to have so much on screen time with the Doctor, which is something that is sometimes lacking. This TV show is, after all, called Doctor Who. And Matt Smith’s performance in this episode was heart wrenching at the end. Being able to actually speak to his TARDIS and then have her human form disappear at the end. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Matt manage to look so old, tired and heartbroken before. It’s a testament to the man’s acting abilities. And Idris left us with something to ponder, didn’t she? “The only water in the forest is the River.” Cue the internet crashing with the sheer weight of people throwing they’re theories into the mix! 

The next episodes were The Rebel Flesh and The Almost People. I was still rather emotional a week after The Doctors Wife so wasn’t as attentive to this episode as i should have been. Hence the fact that I have now watched it about 4 times, just to make sure that i have it my full attention!

In this episode, I had the feeling that they were going to start wrapping things up for the mid-season finale. I was sure that The Moff would start to bring certain threads to a close. To a certain point, this was true for this episode. It was also a pretty creepy instalment of DW – anyone else thinks The Flesh was scary? No? Just me the 31 year old scaredy cat then!  I thought that the Gangers were a great ‘monster’ – really quite creepy for Doctor Who. And it was nice to see Rory standing his ground where Amy was concerned. The poor man has put up with really rather a lot this series. Well, since he’s known Amy really. How many times has he been killed now? He’s the Doctor Who equivalent of a Red Shirt in Star Trek!

 And then we got 2 Doctors which for Matt fangirls like myself, was a treat! I think it also gave Matt a chance to flex his acting muscles a bit too. Must have been hard work having to shot all those extra scenes as the Ganger Doctor!  And i have to admit, I did emit somewhat a squeal when his Ganger was transforming and the voice of Tom Baker came out of his mouth! That was a stroke of genius and just goes to show what a huge fan The Moff is of Doctor Who.

So, we have Gangers trying to take over an acid production plant and get back to earth take over and make humans suffers for what they’ve done to the flesh. We’ve also got 2 Doctors, Rory is running around trying to protect one of the crew who is or isn’t a Ganger, Amy is seeing the Eye Patch Lady again, the TARDIS is buried in the ground and time is running out before the whole place explodes and they all die slow and painful deaths. No pressure then?!

For me, I like Matt when he’s portraying the grumpy, angry side of The Doctor. He does it so well and with such conviction that when it got to the scene in the corridor with Amy and she tells what she thinks is The Doctor’s Ganger that she’s scene his death, I really felt how angry he was. I want to see more of that side of The Doctor in the second part of this series. After all, if you were over 900 years old, you’d be a bit grumpy too, wouldn’t you?

After nearly 6 episodes, when Amy sees the Eye Patch Lady this time, she finally says something to The Doctor. About time too. And here is when you start to see the loose ends of this half of the series start to surface. We also find out at the end of the episode that the Doctor that Amy thought was the real Doctor is in fact the real one. And she’s told him what they all swore that they wouldn’t tell him – about his own death. Oops!  Back on the TARDIS, we get to see the strict, angry side of the Doctor again and we also find out that the Amy that we’ve been following all series is not, in fact, Amy at all. She’s a Ganger. And suddenly, the Eye Patch Lady and the 1st two episodes of the series start to click into place nicely. So we end this 2 parter with Amy locked in some sort of birthing tube and the Eye Patch Lady telling her to push. Anyone else find that ending creepy? No? Just me again then! 

The last episode before the enforced Whoatus was A Good Man Goes to War. The trailers promised us a corker. The internet rumour mill went into over drive and all of time and space nearly collapsed on us all during the wait for this episode. Did anyone else think that week was the slowest week in history?  After all, this was the episode that promised us the answer to who River was. Were we ready for that answer? How many of our own answers had we already made up? Would we be right?

This was an epic episode. When i think back to the final 2-parter of series 5 and how epic that was, this episode was shaping up to be just as impressive. It begins with Cybermen for goodness sake! Cybermen and Rory in his Roman garb. And a Sontaran. And a Silurian. And then we even get the Spitfires from Victory of The Daleks from series 5. They’re all here in this episode. I was a little worried that this was too much for a mid season finale. Then i thought that if this is what The Moff has planned for the mid season finish, what on earth does he have planned for the end of the whole series?  Whatever it is, it’s going to have to be massive to top this episode.

This episode was funny, sad, thrilling and quite brutal at times. The Doctor showed what sort of stuff he’s made off and was quite aggressive in this episode i thought.  Blowing up Cyber ships, shouting at everyone, even those who came to help him.  Ok, we were told that they were debts that were to be repaid, but they all still came to his aid.  

Here we were, the mid season ending and about to find out whom River is. And also who Eye Patch Lady is. What does she want with Amy’s baby? Who is she working for? My initial theories were that Amy was pregnant with a Silence. That’s why i thought the TARDIS couldn’t determine if she was pregnant or not. It would make sense: as soon as the TARDIS scanned her, it would forget, right? But then why would Eye Patch Lady want a Silence/human hybrid? No, that theory was no good. Then i realised that the baby would probably be part Timelord, hence the little girl in the astronaut suit and her regenerating at the end of Day of The Moon.

We find out that the baby has Timelord DNA running through her which is why the Eye Patch Lady wanted her.  We now know that Melody is to be a weapon against the war on the Doctor.  But what war? Is this something that we haven’t seen yet or is she just referring to all his enemies?  But the Eye Patch Lady has managed to fool the Doctor again and the baby that Amy now has a hold of is, in fact, a Ganger.  I certainly didn’t see that one coming!

 And so to the name of Amy and Rory’s baby: Melody Pond.  I think that’s when most of us figured it out, isn’t it? Melody Pond or River Song? The TARDIS made sense 3 episodes back, didn’t she? “The only water in the forest is the river.” The people of the Gamma forests have no word for Pond, they only have River.  That raises another theory i have. The Gamma forests were mentioned an awful lot in this episode – anyone else think that’s more than just a coincidence?

 So, now we know who River is, how do we feel about it? I do have a few issues and questions about the whole River story line.  For starters, how did River not know who Amy was when they first met in Time of Angels in series 5? Surely she would recognise her own mother? But then, if Eye Patch Lady has Melody and the Doctor can’t get her back, then River wouldn’t know who Amy was.

Does this also mean that the little girl in the astronaut suit and who regenerates at the end of Day of The Moon is River?

Is it River in the Astronaut suit at the beginning of The Impossible Astronaut that kills the future Doctor?

Where has Eye Patch Lady taken Melody?

Will the Doctor be able to get her back?

If River didn’t know she was Amy & Rory’s daughter, does that mean that the Doctor can’t save her? Who raises her?

When was Amy taken – before or after A Christmas Carol? 

At this point, you can probably hear my head exploding with all the questions and possibly theories going around in my head!  This is what The Moff is great at – spinning you a yarn that has just enough information to give you a little glimpse into what could be but at the same time, showing you a multitude of possible plot threads and directions. 

This series is shaping up to be one of the creepiest, scariest and most brilliant series yet.  Having seen pretty much every episode of Doctor Who made since its creation in 1963, that’s a big claim, but i feel that it’s true.  The stories are bigger, the sets are bigger and Moffat is drawing on Doctor Who legend going way, way back in its history.  It’s glaringly obvious that he has been a fan for a long, long time and that’s what makes his series so great.  We now have a 3 month wait for the second half of the series to start and he’s already got us spouting all sorts of theories and possibilities!

 I have a few theories of my own but I shall save them for another day!
