We are having a discussion in a Swedish group for Whovians about whether or not the Doctor is a “pedophile” or not when it comes to Rose (I promise you, this isn’t how it all started). Then we started talking about River and whether or not she was a “better” option based on age. Then it hit us that we have no idea how old River Song is.
According to this site she is in her forties, but River also stated in “Let’s kill Hitler” that she was way older.
I have seen the premiere of Doctor Who, season 8, and I can tell you that I am not disappointed!
First of all: a dinosaur!
Second: My favourite trio appears!
Well, as I’ve stated before, Nine was my first Doctor, so the tears were plentiful when he regenerate. But Ten proved to be quite amazing in his own right, and the same feeling happened again with Eleven, and then going in to Twelve.
My advice: Remember that no matter what,…
I’m not sure if I’m more upset with the change of Doctor or with the change of companions and other memorable characters.
Rose and River Song - Do I need to say anymore?
—— Spoilers for those two characters ahead —-
Rose was the start for me, since I started with ninth as my Doctor (still miss him! :< ). When the love story started to evolve, I cried more because of the outturn between Rose and Ten at first, and then out of joy and sadness because the “real” one of them didn’t get her.
River Song was an amazing woman, just amazing. I loved her and I cried when I realized I wouldn’t get to meet this absolutely fantastic character anymore.
But yeah, I do cry when the regeneration begins. Not only because I will miss that particular Doctor, because as the post says: it’s still the Doctor, no matter what face or clothes. What makes me cry is some goddamn good acting from Tennant, Eccleston and Smith!
A new Doctor is a new adventure because now we’ll get to know another amazing person. Looking forward to seeing Peter Capaldi in a few weeks!
"So, do you watch Doctor Wh-"
"Have you heard of that show Sherlock-“
"Do you know who Benedict Cumberb-"
It’s been nine years since Doctor Who returned to television with Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor & Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, and we think that’s a great reason to celebrate. Happy nine years!
What? No. Why is it so cold?! It snowed a few days ago and is going to snow again later this week where I live. XD Oh, weather. Happy first day of spring~

Maybe that’s why we get so emotional
did you just make an egg pun
ANNOUNCING. A new original documentary series, a BBC AMERICA and BBC Two co-production. The Real History of Science Fiction premieres Saturday, April 19, 10:00pm ET after the Season 2 premiere of orphanblack.
From Star Wars to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and from Jurassic Park to Doctor Who, each program is packed with contributors behind these creations and traces the developments of Robots,Space, Invasion and Time. Narrated by Mark Gatiss, Doctor Who writer, actor and co-creator of the BBC’s Sherlock, the series determines why science fiction is not merely a genre… for its audience it’s a portal to a multi-verse – one that is all too easy to get lost in.
Among those taking part are: William Shatner (Star Trek), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek), Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), Richard Dreyfuss (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), Chris Carter (The X-Files), Ronald D Moore (Battlestar Galactica), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Schlock), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), John Carpenter (Dark Star, The Thing), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust), Kim Stanley Robinson (Mars Trilogy), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise), Ursula K Le Guin (The Left Hand of Darkness), Syd Mead (Blade Runner), Kenny Baker (Star Wars),Anthony Daniels (Star Wars), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Peter Weller (Robocop), Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica) and many more.
On one level, sci-fi can deliver a ‘white knuckle-ride’ – jaw-dropping special effects, and thrills that have cinemagoers flying out of their seats. But also, it is possibly the only area of pop culture that engages with big ideas. Good science fiction engages audiences on a deeper level than mere spectacle; it becomes a place to discuss not just the universe and how it works – but what it means to be emotional, sentient human beings.
We can’t wait for this exciting documentary eye-opener to The Real History of Science Fiction.
