Rose just keeps coming back, doesn't she?
Let's not start that again.
Yes, no more R-word, kthxbye.
R-word should throw herself into the crack.

First still from the Christmas Special!
Spoiler: New costume ahoy!
That coat. That costume.
Oh yeah, baby. Time Lord. TIME. LORD.
Prequel to and preview of the Christmas special on Friday, too. Desperately exciting.
Is it Christmas yet?
I hope they finally reveal the new companion's name.
Okay one thing I don't get about this Eight costume... why a bag? Can't he keep everything in his pockets? Ten once pulled a sword out of there
*heads to convention*
But what about The Hobbit?! Priorities!
Then again I suppose we could say our avatars show where our loyalties truly lie.
I'm choosing to believe that Ten's pockets can only really hold so much, whereas Eight's satchel has a great deal more room for all his bits and bobs.
Which is why Ten keeps Eight's satchel in his pockets.
Everyone knows that the satchel isn't to bring things with him, but for what he finds along the way.
No one is going to get that so I'm just going to explain that this is a reference to the pilot episode of MacGyver.
My loyalty is to Void Stuff glasses, yes.
Man, I don't know why I didn't try to check on Gallifrey One tickets earlier. I wasn't sure when they'd go up. Evidently that started in September and they're sold out now... whoops. I do know one of the Torchwood writers who will be on a panel there, but I probably shouldn't abuse my power and ask for tickets... probably
Looking at the TARDIS in the background of that Christmas Special picture, it looks like her exterior has seen better days. Makes me wonder what happened between the Christmas Special and the second half of S7 to get her back in tip top shape.

No spoilers. It's a bit sad to see Tennant doing a forgettable a Christmas film like this, to be honest. Those other Brit actors we would put him on a par with - Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman - they're going from strength to strength, from awesome production to awesome production. Tennant's selling himself to the undemanding Christmas movie audience. I can't see Matt Smith taking this route when he steps away from The Doctor. I dunno, maybe Tennant will come back to the stage in the near future. That would suit me.
And mine is with Christopher Lee.
Perhaps if we all wish upon a star Sir Lee will put in a guest appearance on Doctor Wh
You know what would've been great? Sir Christopher Lee as the voice of 'House' in "The Doctor's Wife". Michael Sheen did a great job, but Lee... even better I think.
Plus, we'd have Christopher Lee in Doctor Who.
On the one hand, I know what you mean because I would love for David to be a huge superstar who could do whatever films and shows he wanted. I mean, I loved Fright Night and really wish it had done better for his sake in Hollywood. At the same time, it's not as though he's done nothing. He's done quite a lot of television, and you know, as a TV person myself I sort of hate when that's counted as not as real or important as film. Especially when so much of TV is great and so much of film is crap. Personally I'm looking forward to Spies of Warsaw. And it's only been a year since he did theatre, that's not really that long.
Also, the exposure those other actors got in America was much greater. Sherlock and current Who are well promoted in the US. But you never saw David on the cover of EW. Sadly, he bore the burden of making the show great, but not quite reaping the widespread attention for it. By the time people started really paying attention in the US (where the film power is), Matt was the face of the show.
Still, David's been in a lot of stuff since Who that I've liked. Of course I wish every casting director in the business knew him and wanted to put him in their films. But who's to say that would be better. And I also really like what Noah Wyle had to say about life after starring in a popular TV show when he left ER after 11 years... people kept saying did he think he was ever going to get to do another big role after this, and he said that most actors never even get to do a fraction of the things he was able to do as an actor on that show, so even if he never did anything again he'd consider himself more fortunate than most. Casting is fickle. All actors can do is do what they love and enjoy themselves. And all fans can do is cross their fingers and pray someone puts David in something where he'll get the recognition he deserves.
Good response. Can't argue with any of it. Things have lined up better for the Baker Street boys (and will for Smith), and Tennant has done a lot of good TV. Although still nothing as significant as Sherlock.
And all fans can do is cross their fingers and pray someone puts David in something where he'll get the recognition he deserves.
Yeah. I just wish this fantastic actor would get a post-Doctor gig that would let him soar.
