Doctor Who rewatch thoughts

In case anyone where is interested, here are some random thoughts and observations from the Doctor Who rewatch I've been doing this summer:

Series 1
Series 2 & 3

(for the record, these are the thoughts of someone who for 10 years was a casual viewer who watched the show despite the Doctor and then suddenly a few months ago became a "proper" fan who watched the show *because* of the Doctor)

The Madwoman in the Basement (ramblings/meta)

It doesn't seem like anybody's posted any meta here in awhile, but in the interest of supporting the growth of Who fandom on DW, thought I would link you all to my (slightly sketchy and unpolished--my apologies) musings on Knock Knock:

Madwoman in the Attic Basement

Warning: hardcore literary geekery ahead, including discussion of Knock Knock as a gothic novel, a comparison of Moffat To T.S. Eliot, and an analysis of how a popular supposition of who's in the vault would fit into the show's symbolism.

The Pilot: Bill

This is a post  analysing Bill's character in all my slightly interesting quotes in the episode. I would like to thank Chakoteya transcripts, and also you, for your patience.

Spoilers! Also, length. )

The Randomizer: The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood

*takes a deep breath*

I have been randomly watching my way through Doctor Who and blogging about it and it occurred to me, in the name of getting more involved with the DreamWidth community, that maybe I should crosspost my sporadic musings to this comm.

So here is my review of The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood.

Perfect song for an Amy/Rory fanvid

I just realized what would be the perfect song for an Amy/Rory fanvid: My Funny Valentine by Rodgers and Hart

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable
Yet you're my favorite work of art

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay
Each day is Valentine's Day

That is their song, y/y?

Lots of Fic

Hi everyone!

I've recently joined Dreamwidth (well, I actually joined a while ago, but I only now started to seriously do something with it). I have a several dozen Doctor Who (sometimes /Torchwood).

I write a lot of Doctor/Jack and Doctor/Jack/Rose, but I also have other pairings/moresomes and genfic. Nine is my Doctor, but I also have Ten and elven fics. No Classic, though, sicne I've seen too little of it. Ratings range from All Ages to Explicit, genres from fluff to angst.

I hope it's okay if instead of trying to post all my fic to this comm separately, which would take weeks, I simply post a link to my masterlist.

[SPOILERS] DW: The Beast Below

I have posted a review/dissection of S05E02 The Beast Below in my journal here. Spoilers from the outset.

So then, what did we think?

K, spoiler free review. Um, didn't Karen/Amy look great in that outfit?

I thought the first ten minutes or so were both OTT and self-indulgent, but did work as a nice setup for 11 and Amy. But then it began to grab me.

Anyone else? I suspect there'll be spoilers in the comments. Some of them will come from me.
