andraste: Lost Doctor (Eighth Doctor)
[personal profile] andraste
So, the 50th Anniversary Mini-Episode, The Night of the Doctor has gone up a day early:

Oh, God, the one thing I had never dared to hope we would see, and I just saw it. With no bracing time whatsoever, although as soon as I saw lovely Eight I knew this had to be the regeneration. It's just awful and perfect that he dies in that particular way and chooses what he does.

And I thought it could not get any better or more appropriate or more painful and then he said 'Charley, C'Rizz, Lucie, Tamsin, Molly' and that's when I started crying.

I guess it is too much to hope that the 'Moffat doesn't care about the Classic Series!' people on Gallifrey Base will watch this and eat their words, isn't it? (I mean, if Time Crash didn't clue them in, I'm not sure anything can help.)

I ... just ... It now does not matter to me if The Day of the Doctor is any good or not. I mean, it will be nice if it is, but that was really all I needed.

It's strange, before, I didn't want them to do the Time War on screen because I thought that like the name of the Doctor, it was best left to the imagination, but now: Eight! Big Finish Companions referred to on screen! My caution, it is thrown to the wind. Bring on the Hurt!

Wow. I only started watching Who this year (now caught up on McGann through Smith, as least as far as the tv stuff goes), but that's enough to get the context of this, and it's fabulous. Can't wait for DotD!

Naah, they'll probably complain that he maliciously jossed all the fic abut Eight ending the Time War. But yes, that was great.

'but probably not the one you expected' ....break the fourth wall more adorably, why don't you~~

I kinda like the idea that Eight just couldn't bring himself to be part of the war, that there are states of mind/personality that are alien to each individual doctor, making them more unique. (On the other hand, does 'War Doctor' count as a whole regeneration? If it retcons the whole numbering system from Nine on, that's going to get *really confusing*)
