Having finally watched the series opener of Doctor Who, I have the thinky thoughts.

Under the cut for spoilers )
hobbit_feets: (e&e || the lovers)
So, two days ago (sort of), I finally watched Torchwood: Children of Earth.  It fairly well ripped out my soul and trod on it with big, stompy, military boots and then left it in a shivery, shellshocked heap.  Later, I think, I will attempt to write up a proper review of it, but for the moment, I dinnae think I can quite manage it.  Suffice to say that this was RTD at his absolute best.  It was horrifying and tragic, but the whole thing felt real.  Grounded in real, well-written characters, all of whom tried their best under the circumstances but didn't always quite make it.  It was amazing.  It takes damn good television to leave the audience feeling quite so gutted, and I think it's just a sign of what a remarkable thing RTD achieved with this, that it's been getting such vehemently mixed reviews all across fandom.

Also, I need a Ianto icon.  Clearly, something must be done to remedy this.

I am going to attempt to get back into updating this more regularly, instead of ignoring it for months on end like I have been doing.  Whoops.

So, I figured I'd try out a little thing called liveblogging whilst I watched Planet of the Dead, rather than try and type up something detailed and thoughtful afterwards, because I'm a lazy sod like that.  Ah well.

So!  My thoughts, as I went along.  Beware of occasional squee and capslockery

THE DEVIL'S WHORE OMG

I'm sick right now and probably feverish and hallucinating, which is not exactly brilliant fodder for posting thoughtful, intelligent responses to things on my lj, but oooh, do I ever approve. 

I did a little flail when Harry Lloyd appeared and went 'I know who you are!'  I swear, every actor who's ever had a tiny part in Doctor Who inevitably finds themselves doing other film together, it's a bit of a weird thing.  But then, it's Who.  It's ubiquitous like that.  Gorgeous camerawork; I can't say I know much about such things, but the colours are all so sumptuous and lush and gorgeous- all the silks and beautiful fabrics against white skin and dark hair in the court scenes, and then suddenly you have SEXBY and battles and everything's still just as sumptuous and lush and gorgeous but in a filthy, bloody, muddy way.

SEXBY's name, incidentally, is going to be capitalised every time I mention it here because JOHN SIMM, I WANT TO HAVE YOUR ACTING BABIES.

Speaking of SEXBY- John Simm here on blisteringly good form, as ever.  I had to laugh at first because our initial introduction to the character was of him as such a creeper, lurking around corners and nicking Angelica's garters at swordpoint, but he becomes soooo badarse.   And John Simm has the marvellous ability to make potentially clunky writing (That whole 'do not draw your sword unless you be certain of the day' monologue) sound gorgeous.  He's just so gruff and brooding and filthy and scruffy and... om nom nom.  With a scar.  And a sword.  And bizarrely idealistic, which was unexpected and rather lovely from such a cynical, mercenary type- that scene towards the end where he walks out of the Parliamentarian's camp. 

I saw this somewhere on lj in a squeeing response, and it sounded amazing, so I must repeat it here- just that Angelica has got such gorgeously milky white skin, all I want to see is for SEXBY to get it all dirty with his filthy, filthy hands.  Which- nom.

I also weirdly came away from it with a desire to see SEXBY/Rainsborough.  We shall see, as the programme progresses, if this desire remains constant.

Angelica's visions of the Devil- bit weird, that, but I haven't got any real complaints, because my mind is busy going SEXBY.

Watching LoM US. 

It hurts.  So badly.  So much pain.  Who is this imposter and how dare he call himself Sam Tyler?  And Gene?  God, what have they done to you...?  God, and nicking some of the music from the proper Life on Mars, too.

*wails and rends garments?

EDIT: 'You have a soft face'?  No, no actually, he doesn't.  He has a chiselled chin and looks like a twat.  Now, one reasonably could have said this to Simm!Sam, but not this prig.

FURTHER EDIT: Sam twists Gene's arm behind his back?  Clearly the so-called writers of this have missed a vital part of Sam and Gene's relationship.

FURTHER FURTHER EDIT: Where the bloody hell is Nelson?  What sort of pallid excuse for a CID boozer is that?  ... And showing us 'Sam' in a coma?  Half the allure of the concept of LoM is the ambiguity!  Sam doesn't know if he's mad, in a coma, or back in time, and nor do we!  ;LJABSDG;LKJHASGDF;LASDHGFS

DOCTOR WHO ZOMG I AM SO EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE RIGHT NOW IT'S RIDICULOUS AND... GAH!!!  So emotionally unstable, in fact, that I just went for a run to purge my system.  And, if you know me, you will know that I never exercise, ever, and if I do, it's not something ever avoiding running.  I make a point to avoid running.  And I just went for a run.  Ahem.  Anyway.

Ok.  Um.  Let's see if I can collect my thoughts on this episode into something even marginally coherent.  Ahem.  Right

Cut for many, many spoilery type spoilers )
hobbit_feets: (Gene)
Muahaha; I iz in England.  And I haz an internets.  Victory is to be belonging to me nao.

Doctor bloody Who!  If Donna is dead, there shall be some serious smitage going on, let me tell you.  Though the episode was brilliant, as one comes to expect of Stephen Moffat.  I'm sure I had a lot to say, but I can't really think of any of it now.  Because I fail at life.  Bollocks.  But I am alive and well and being generally groovy over here in England, in case any of you were wondering.  Life is fab.  Weirdly, I enjoy baked beans and tomatoes as part of my breakfast.   I've got to know York well enough that I can wander about and not get lost.  Which, if you know anything about me and my sense of direction, is a feat.
hobbit_feets: (Life on Mars)
I really shouldn't watch Ashes to Ashes late at night, all it does is depress me.   Gene is sad and alone and Sam is dead, and Alex is a tart.   Well, not really so much that she's a tart as she flirts obnoxiously with Gene and then swans off to go be mental.  Gene has lost his boytoy!   He has a bleeding shrine to the boy on his office wall!  Humour him, woman!  Allow him to be happy!  Gah.  *snatches Gene and Sam and smishes them together for all eternity*
hobbit_feets: (Trendy Little Fucks)

I just watched 'The Shakespeare Code' episode of Doctor Who, and now I definitely want to write Shakespeare/Doctor slash.  I am positive, however, that none exists, and I daren't write it myself.  But seriously, though; I can't help it that bloody Shakespeare had to go flirting with the Doctor!  I mean, come on!  Filthy prickteases, the lot of 'em at the BBC.

hobbit_feets: (Takeover)

I just watched the last episode of the second season of Doctor Who (10th Doctor), and I was absolutely in tears.  Sitting in front of my computer fucking sobbing.  And that's not something I do; it takes a bloody lot for a movie or tv programme or book to make me cry, and yet here I am- the collar of my shirt is wet from the tears.  Wtf, mates?  Seriously?  But then, I do ship Doctor/Rose like a mad, shipping thing, so the ending there was unbelievably tragic as far as I'm concerned.
