toon’d doctor who characters

That brief period where everyone was turning characters into Pixar people via toonme appears to be over now. But I found some Doctor Who ones I’d whipped up during said period! And I decided to edit them a little because toonme is, uh, very possibly not designed for anyone but light-skinned blue-eyed people? Tweaked some colours and ended up with-

Fanmade Doctor Who Blu-Ray Covers: The Martha Jones collection

A very pink cover for Martha Jones! Pink and purple just seem to suit her.

About the original Martha promo shot I used for this cover… I realised when enlarging it that she has blemishes on her skin AND THEY WEREN’T PHOTOSHOPPED OUT! So I didn’t photoshop them out either. Thank you Doctor Who photography people.

The Doctor Who s4 finale rewatch (2/2, Journey’s End)

You’ve read the first one right? Let’s crack on.

Aww bless them.

The Doctor Who s4 finale rewatch (1/2, The Stolen Earth)

Okay so the rewatch of the Doctor Who season 4 finale was a BIG undertaking and loads of the cast and crew joined in! And some wonderful person actually put them all together in a list so the whole watchalong was made easier! Woo!

However, I’m gonna do the same thing I did for some of the other rewatches and put all the most interesting tweets together and in order. (Also I added Georgia Tennant’s tweets because they were friggin’ hilarious.) So first I’ve done The Stolen Earth and tomorrow I’ll do Journey’s End. There’s a wealth of fascinating information in there and well, this blog isn’t called Overly Devoted Archivist for nothing.

(Freema is utterly and totally delightful throughout all of this)

(I absolutely love all the Noel-Freema interactions here. Hey hope springs eternal Mickey and Martha will be back one day…)

Farewell, Sarah Jane

It’s here, and I’m so very sad. But since this is canon… Mickey and Martha canonically have a son now, and Luke is married to Sanjay, and Tegan and Nyssa are a couple (wow!) and just, it was lovely to see all these characters again. It really was.

But oh, I still miss her.

Everything that appeared in that one scene from The Timeless Children

You know the one.

Honestly, whatever you think of the episode… WHAT A SCENE. Over five decades of Doctor Who history (Whostory?) packed into a few seconds. With the theme tune! I loved it to pieces.

So being me I’ve gone through it frame by frame to pick out everything that appeared. (This gets pretty long, as you may have expected, sorry)

TORCHWOOD: DISSECTED Brings Martha Jones Back To Life (Review) — Nerdist

Welcome back, Dr. Martha Jones. The Tenth Doctor companion, portrayed by Freema Agyeman, was last seen in the 2010 Doctor Who episode “The End of Time” as freelance alien hunting alongside her husband Mickey Smith. It was an intriguing update that made fans wonder how she went from being a UNIT official primed for Torchwood…

TORCHWOOD: DISSECTED Brings Martha Jones Back To Life (Review) — Nerdist

Oh man this sounds fantastic. I need to get it. I’ve never actually listened to a Big Finish (I fear I’d lack the attention span for it) but I love Martha so I’m always up for a character study of her.

Last minute Who predictions

Twitter is ablaze in speculation about what the Big Thing in this episode is gonna be. Man I haven’t been this excited about a DW episode in ages! So here’s my guesses for returning character:

AMY! Based on that picture I reblogged a few ago. Who knows if it’s even legit? But that’s the one I want the most.

MARTHA! The Judoon are back for this episode and they debuted alongside Martha, so I figure it’s a reasonable guess.

JACK! A lot of people seem to think it might be Jack. I dunno why, but hey! Maybe it’s him.

RIVER! Well, she’s connected to Amy and there’s still that photo to take into consideration… and I really want Thirteen to meet her, and I think lots of other people do too.

Man! This is even more intense than The Masked Singer.
