Doctor Who: Turn Left

Right, someone is going to have to point me towards some fabulous Donna icons because it's simply not on that I don't have any of her. She is fabulous.

Couple of points of interest behind the lj cut.



- I completely forgot that the Titanic ship had a nuclear storm drive. Oh god, seeing London getting wiped out like that. Wow.

- Rose fixed it so that Donna would win the lottery, then?

- I'm a bit spoiled thanks to the Confidential however...seeing Rose like that? That was my Rose. The strong, capable Rose who doesn't want to be addressed with a title and helps build a freakin' time machine and she's grown up lovely. She's fantastic.

- OMG ROSE YOU AND YOUR MASCARA. NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN. *hugs tight*

- Donna is lovely and it is amazing how she's thrived almost in spite of her mother's...attitude towards her. How devastating it was to have her mother, drained of everything, saying that "yeah" in response to Donna admitting she was useless. GOD that hurt.

- Without the Doctor, everyone still fights but they wind up sacrificing their lives for it. That was the horrible lesson. I mean, even in the very end, Donna sacrifices herself to right the altered time line. Rose unable to lie to Donna at the very last moment when Donna was hopeful and thought they'd all live and Rose apologized, OH MY HEART. And Rose's "I'm sorry" >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ANY of the Doctor's "I'm sorry. I'm so so sorry" lame apologies.

- DONNA.

- DONNA!!!

- Turn left, turn right, one simple turn upending the universe. I'm fascinated by this point that they're making about Donna being important, I think it's tremendous how natural it's felt to me as I've watched S4, of course she's important, she's Donna. Catherine Tate has really impressed me over the course of this season.

- The part where I completely lost my shit was the utterance of Bad Wolf. Honestly I wasn't expecting it and I don't know why I wasn't expecting it, DUH of course it ought to be that but I'd thought DW completely abandoned that meme and that disappointed me greatly since "the Bad Wolf paradox" (our first utterance of Bad Wolf in The End of the World) always struck me as meaning something greater. For the Doctor to LOSE HIS SHIT, for the TARDIS to freak out, for him to say, "It's the end of the universe." HOO BOY, I am so fucking there. It's a meme that has power to me since it was the big throughline that hooked me in but good the thing that got me really loving Doctor Who and it brought back this wonderful resurgence of happiness that I'd lost with half-assed plots and annoying character arcs never fulfilled (hello the lack of the Doctor's comeuppance re: his arrogance and the Master's completely dismal end to his potentially amazing arc) over S2 and S3.

- OMG DONNA. HI. I ADMIRE YOU A LOT. I LOVE THAT YOU AND ROSE WERE AWESOME TOGETHER.

- I need to force myself to calm down as last season, I was extremely hopefully only to have Last of the Tinkerbell Timelords close out the season. I will do so but I do hope...that I enjoy the last two eps. Yeah.
