Doctor Who, “The Pyramid at the End of the World”

I’m going to try something different. I’m going to write this post as I watch the episode. Granted it’s 3:14am EST, but it just became available in my Amazon Video queue (we’re working on cutting cable). I may leave it as this. I may post a more coherent blog post later. I don’t know. Anyway, here’s the spoiler-free picture before the actual spoilers.

The Day of the Doctor: Part 2

I’ve talked about everything else in The Day of the Doctor, let’s talk about the Doctor and his multiple regenerations.

The first time he meets another regeneration is when Eleven jumps into the time fissure and runs into Ten. That scene was brilliant! Sizing each other up was hilarious. Seeing how skinny Ten was from “the outside” was a nice touch. I love how they start off a little…judgemental, but then the glasses come out (“Oh! Lovely!”) and some common ground is found and it just gets better from there.
Although I do have to wonder if Kate was taken aback when she heard Ten’s voice because she recognized it, from video of course, or because it was another regeneration.
Anyway, they continue to be two regenerations who had not met yet (“How can you forget this?”) and make a great reference back to their shared history by reversing the polarity. Squee!

“We’re both reversing the polarity.”
“Yes, I know that!”
“There’s two of us. I’m reversing it. You’re reversing it back again. We’re confusing the polarity!”

Sorry for the gap

I’ve been busy with a lot of things lately. But there will be a few posts soon. The recent season of Doctor Who is done and there are a lot of mixed feelings overall. But there is one thing I am sure of: I love the Twelfth Doctor! “These are attack eyebrows! You can take bottletops off with these!”

Before I start rambling, I’ll leave it. For now. I’m thinking of at least going through each episode. I may also do an overall post as well. I am really looking forward to this!

“They’re crosser than the rest of my face. They’re independently cross! They probably want to cede from the rest of my face and set up their own independent state of eyebrows!”
