And I have slightly mixed feelings, I admit. If it was just Catherine Tate as Donna coming back I’d be over the moon! But the Tenth Doctor is here too and as much as I like David Tennant, I hate Ten. As you know. I’m sorry!
In the press release Russell T Davies implied it could just be a flashback or a parallel universe but what I REALLY want is for him to finally reverse Donna’s terrible ending, I’m still salty about it over a decade later.
Well at least no-one will have to digitally de-age them.
So it turns out that I have not being getting ANY messages submitted via this blog’s contact form! Goddammit. The messages did appear in the ‘Feedback’ page on my WordPress dash, but I never even knew what the ‘Feedback’ thingy did! Sorry everyone. If you want to contact me in the future maybe just leave a comment instead?
I even tried sending myself a message via the contact form and yep, straight in my email spam folder where I’d never have seen it. Gah. :/
Twenty years ago to the day I started blogging. Well, I suppose it was Livejournalling back then. I was about a month into being 14 years old at the time, and now I’m 34.
I wish I had something else to add here, something that would sound smart. It’s really… weird when I go back over old posts and realize how much the world has changed since I wrote them. Sometimes it’s changed for the better. I hope this blog is still around in 20 years. Who knows? Maybe my possible future children can read it then.
Definitely one of the most creative and wild and aesthetically amazing MCU films so far, Sam Raimi absolutely nailed it there. AND NOW THE SPOILERS! And also complaining about spoilers! So look away now!
I caved and I bingewatched the rest of it in one go. Oh man, an absolute punch to the gut, even though I knew full well what the ending would be. My sadness is uh, I guess also sort of tinged with happiness that one of my favorite books was done justice with the adaptation, which is a very odd thing to feel.
INCREDIBLY well done series with an absolutely amazing cast. Paterson Joseph and Helen Baxendale in particular killed it. (Hey, there’s a depressing stealth pun in there!) No idea when the BAFTAs are but honestly I hope this show gets the nominations piled on. Hey do the BAFTAs have a best set/costume design category?… they don’t. Well, they should make one just for this show then.
I keep hearing rumors there might be a season three after all and it’s not like they don’t have a lot of material to work with so I would love that if it happened. I’m still very happy with what we got though. Not HAPPY happy obviously, the final scenes were so heartwrenching I could barely watch them, but you know what I mean!
A new trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi! It didn’t awake in me the same sort of delight I got from hearing Duel of the Fates in the first trailer, and there is no Beru who is the person I most wanted to see, but it’s all worth it to see that expression on Obi-Wan’s face at the end. You’ll know it when you see it.
