Since I won’t be watching The Day of the Doctor live with the rest of the world, maybe I can take a “sick day” off work tomorrow and hand in this note, all I have to do is change Saturday to Sunday and I’m set…
On a side note: ONLY 4 HOURS TO GO!!!
I tried so hard not to spoil myself by looking at any promo pics or the trailer but I was too weak…I caved as soon as I accidentally saw a few screenshots from the trailer on Instagram. Seeing a picture of Ten and Eleven comparing sonics, ( no it’s not a euphemism for anything, they were comparing their sonic screwdrivers), made me hunt down that trailer so that I could watch the whole thing. I mean come on, how can you stay strong when you see this…and yes, Eleven’s IS bigger than Ten’s…now get your dirty mind out of the gutter!
And then came the search for any and all promo pics.
I am a little disappointed that we’re not going to see Ten AND Rose like I was hoping we would. I really wanted it to be Rose & Ten when they were together. We all know that rose is in it, but judging by all the pictures I’ve seen she doesn’t seem to be there as a companion, maybe she’s the Bad Wolf, or some other version of herself. I keep wondering why she’s in rags and is it even Rose?
When you look at the pictures with both Rose & Ten, which aren’t many, it’s obvious that he isn’t aware of her presence. It’s a little sad because it seems like the events of The Day of The Doctor take place after Journey’s End, when he leaves Rose with the meta-crisis Doctor, Ten II.
I still have my fingers crossed. I want to see Ten’s reaction when he sees Rose again, Eleven’s reaction too. The Doctor after all is still the same man, and Rose is his soul-mate.
There are other questions running through my mind, questions I hope Steven Moffat has answers to. One of those questions is that if John Hurt is the 9th incarnation of The Doctor, meaning Nine us really Ten and Ten is really Eleven and so on, then why didn’t Nine (Christopher Eccleston) recognize Rose in the first episode of the reboot? Clearly he’s met her here…or can he not see her?
That’s enough rambling for now…whatever the answers are and however the 50th anniversary special plays out I’m still excited to have my Doctor back. Even if it is only for a little over an hour.Just look at how adorable he looks when he’s playing with one of his timey wimey devices:
And finally, if you haven’t already seen The Night of the Doctor which is the prequel to The Day of the Doctor, aka the one where Eight regenerates into John Hurt then here it is!
And the real countdown has finally begun.
I would have expected myself to be posting about how excited I am every day this week…eh, blame real life, too many shows to watch and my stupid laptop for the lack of posts.
There are only 3 more days until The Day of The Doctor airs. Well…4 days for me since I won’t be able to watch it until the next
day night. Unfortunately I’m not going to get to see it live here in Jordan, meaning I’ll have to wait until it airs so that I can download “acquire” it. That of course won’t be until after midnight since we’re 3 hours ahead of the UK. And thanks to my moody internet the download probably won’t finish for at least 3 or 4 hours. I have work the next day so I’ll be forced to sleep. Oh and knowing what a bitch my computer is and has been lately, I’m willing to bet that it’ll keep overheating and switching off that night so my download will never finish…and if that happens then there goes my plan to wake up at 7am just to watch it…not that I will anyway, no matter how much I love The Doctor and how excited I am to watch this, I love sleep more.
And on a side note…oh look…isn’t that Four’s scarf!!??
While trolling for Ten/Rose fanvids on YouTube the other day (at 1 am of course) I came across a cute video with Westlife’s The Rose. I’m surprised I’ve never heard it before, it’s a beautiful song. It was originally sung by Bette Midler in the late 70’s, but personally I prefer the Westlife version.
Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, it’s only seed
It’s the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It’s the one who won’t be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love
In the spring becomes the rose
