Don't call it a reboot.

I know that i never posted my notes for ep9, and i've lost them now, so buggrem. If i can skip everything between two episodes in on the 5th doc and Eccleston, y'all will do fine w/o my FW impressions of Lost Child.

Season: ??? Episode:10: The Doctor Dances:

He sent them to their room. He was quite cross. Outstanding opening.

It's drunk, i'm late, more to come soon, i promise.

I don't particularly like Jack. In spite of his rap about being a con man, it's not necessarily that i don't trust him, though there are certainly angles of his personality which i don't trust. I sense that he lacks empathy, and not quite in the same way that the Doctor lacks empathy. The Doctor is capable of some empathy, it's just that his alien nature gets in the way some times. It's nice that Rose having a good time with Jack, but i think she's a young lady with a tendency to love a little too easily some times, and i fear Jack will hurt her, not because he enjoys hurting her, but because he doesn't understand her.

I love Rose's Union Jack tee.

So the Doctor blew up the factory and encouraged a banana grove. He likes bananas, bananas are good. I think i recall a British humour/sci-fi book in which it turns out that bananas were actually sent back in time after having been genetically created. They're highly nutritious, easy to clone, grow in areas where many nutritious food has difficulty, and they even come in their own 100% naturally biodegradable packaging. A Tom Holt book perhaps.

Powerful and angry. I haven't forgotten that i'm expecting a Bad Wolf at some point before the end of the season. I don't expect to see it in this episode, but i wonder if the destruction in the room is connected.

What wonderfully creepy atmospheric music as we listen to the reel-to-reel tapes of the child demanding his mummy and repeatedly asking a man with a baritone voice if he is the child's mummy. Also interesting how otherwise innocent childish drawings of a woman become so chilling in context.

Now there's a ballsy little blackmailer. This young woman was set up as rather a hero in the last episode, but British fiction has historically taken rather a dim view of blackmail in general, and even when someone likable commits it, and even when they do so out of exigent circumstances and even given a noble cause, the blackmailers often pay a hefty price themselves. I think that's one of the reasons that the From Hell narrative used to explain the Ripper murders is so popular in the UK - it feeds into certain tropes and follows a narrative that makes sense in a deeply intuitive way.

Jack just disappeared. Okay. About 15 seconds after boasting about his gallant rescue of the lovely damsel in distress, he buggers off and leaves her there, without so much as a tip of the hat. Pfft.

Great scene with the kids.

So cutesy to see Eccleston playing jealous.

They have a song. Awww. I think that's Glen Miller's In The Mood, too. Juicy.

She wants to dance with the Doctor to the tune of her song with Jack?

At this point i'm rather more interested in the story of the girl with the braids than i am in the love triangle story. The weird disease or whatever it is almost feels more like an X-Files episode than a Doctor Who story.

Just this once, everybody lives. LOL! In the blitz, no less!

I had a feeling Jack wasn't going to die. After all, the Doctor had said that just this once, everybody would live. Jack's readiness for self-sacrifice does speak well of him, though.

And that is Take The A Train!

Great episode!

Rose's UJ tee...first time I saw that I was having a serious Def Leppard flashback...All I got is a photograph....it's not enough.

Quick...how does the first convo between Rose and the Doctor end? Anybody? Bueller? Thank you, Ferris. That is correct. Nice to meet you, Rose Tyler. Now run for you life. unquote. And this is the point where you can begin to heap abuse on Russell Davies because...and I will say this clearly...The. Doctor. Does. Not. Run.

This was a practical precedent set by the first few actors in the role. After all, they were all older blokes and they solved problems with logic rather than by force. When haste was necessary, well, I remember Tom Baker walking briskly a couple of times, but never running because running implies that he has lost control of the situation and the Doctor is never NOT in control of the situation, and not even Davison, the youngest of the early Doctors ever ran. But when Davies resurrected the franchise and cast younger actors to broaden the fanbase he turned it into an action series, Bruce Willis with a blue box and a sex toy that opens doors.

Kelly, you laughed at me for "being all about 11"? It's not Matt Smith so much. even though I did take an immediate liking to him. It's that Moffat has been returning the series more toward what it was in the Pertwee/Tom Baker/Davison years. Only better. The meta-arc over the first two seasons of Smith was one of the greatest things I have ever seen on TV. And it only improves from there because the next Companion is one whom...well, won't go in to that. But Capaldi was not into running, the whole "He's too OLD to play The Doctor" line and I really doubt that Whittaker will be asked to run.

I'd call it more a "levels of attraction" thing. Casting a wide net.

You were definitely into levels of attraction before it was cool.

Fish gotta swim, bird gotta fly, Kelly gotta be snarky.

It doesn't get much hipper than Bokononisms.
