Doctor Who Watch-a-thon 4×0

This is a weekly feature (Wednesdays) where Christa of Hooked on Books and myself will be watching and discussing all of the reboot of Doctor Who. Posts will contain spoilers for that episode and ones before it, so you may want to watch the episode before reading. I hope you’ll join us in enjoying this fantastic show, and don’t forget to check out Christa’s post (with past posts over here) as well! Allons-y!

Moving back to once a week DW posts! Woo!

Voyage of the Damned by Russell T Davies

When the TARDIS crashes into the Titanic, the Doctor finds himself in for the voyage of a lifetime.

This episode made me CRY SO MUCH. The brilliance of Davies and his secondary characters always gets to me. The fact that I sobbed over these characters deaths after only knowing them for minutes shows how brilliantly they are written. Or else that I am very emotionally unstable.

This episode would probably get a ten on the corny scale. Davies must have really been in a “the Doctor should fly” kind of mood when he wrote this and The Last of the Time Lords, but whatever. Also, anyone else feel that Max would have fit in quite well in an Austin Powers movie?

One thing, can we talk about what a HORRIBLE MESSAGE the ending gives? Hey kids, be a complete asshole, only look after yourself, and you will survive and become super rich! But if you are a good person and reach for your dreams, you will die. Soon. And horribly. Also, why didn’t Astrid just jump out of the fork lift? I mean she managed to get above it when she was falling? These are the things my mind clings to.

  1. I have to admit I had a few tears for the Van Hoffs and I was a little choked up for Astrid. They were just such lovely characters.

    And good point – why didn’t she jump out of the forklift?
