(no subject)

Title: Locked Doors (PG-13)
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Doctor/Rose
Disclaimer: I own nothing, lalala...
Summary: The Doctor and Rose return to visit Jackie, but as usual all is not as it seems. People are being locked in their homes and even the Doctor is helpless. And just what is making everyone ill? First fic I ever wrote, a few years ago. Thought I'd post it!
Warnings: Quite a lot of fluff, as in all my fics!
Status: In progress

'Boom Town' rewatch-review

Here's my long write-up for "Boom Town." I hope someone reads this, it took me over six hours to do. Sigh. I really love this show.

I think that "Boom Town" is a very under-rated episode; it has fantastic -- and I do mean fantastic! -- acting, wonderful writing by Russell T Davies with some marvelous gems contained within the script, a fairly believably plot (well, for sci-fi crack courtesy of Rusty) with some nice bits of foreshadowing, and some fabulous characterization all-around.

Doctor Who 1x10 "The Doctor Dances" rewatch-review

I finally sat down and did my rewatch-review of "The Doctor Dances." I do expect them to start coming faster again now that I've gotten past Moffat. Anyhoo, follow the linked excerpt ...

To be completely honest, I am simply unable to be unbiased in writing up a review of any sort for a Stephen Moffat episode. Anything positive about the episode, I find myself wanting to give the credit to someone else; anything negative, I happily heap upon Moffat. I'll try and navigate around that bias, but I can't promise that I'll succeed. With that said, "The Doctor Dances."

A few announcements

Firstly, I would just like to welcome arabian to the moderating team -- she's joining up with me to help out with this community and she's very, very welcome.

Secondly, there have been some important updates to the aim/focus of this community. I hope none of you decide to leave us because of it, but it was decided between arabian and myself that this community should be more open to other characters and their ships. So, here's the newest declaration:

As long as it's RTD's new!who, it's welcome.

Be it ship, picspam, ramble, discussion, fic, art... anything. For more information, see our profile page.

We will also (shortly, if not now) have a new sidebanner, which... well, I think is very pretty, myself *g*.

You're all important to us here, in celebrating RTD and his wonderful Who, and I hope you all stick around to bask in his characters and era.

Feel free to comment on how you feel about the changes to the community.

The Doctor and Rose - First and Last


I think one of RTD's greatest strengths as a writer is characterization...

I came into Who a true blue scifi geek with no previous history with the show and in one episode RTD had me so wrapped up in the character and story of the companion that the Doctor with his TARDIS and sonic screwdriver was just a happy addition later on. I was hooked without even seeing him. Rusty tends to do that with all his characters. Even the guest stars and smaller roles. He doesn't make everything about the all encompassing persona of who and what the Doctor is. He fleshes out those around him. Gives them layers, depth, strengths and flaws. RTD's writing isn't just about plot, action and visual effects. The people make his stories and to me that takes more talent then a thousand impossible actions sequences. In my opinion, Rusty's care with characterization is a huge reason for new Who's success with scifi and non scifi fans alike.

Doctor Who: A Writer's Tale

Soon Russell T. Davies' book, consisting of a series of e-mails between him and Benjamin Cook (reporter for Doctor Who Magazine) throughout the production of series 4, will go on sale. In it RTD reveals what that process of writing and coming up with ideas for the series is like, production decisions and insights on previous series and other shows of his. Times Online have some excerpts:
Part 1: The writing process, clubbing, refusing series 5, casting J.K. Rowling (!), friction with the BBC
Part 2: Steven Moffat, hating interviews and press junkets, River Song, Christmas 2008 Special spoilers

Erm- that Harry Potter cross-over episode idea was a bit mad, yeah? And those spoilers sound wonderful. And I love Rusty's writing :D
