What Can We Expect from the Doctor Who Christmas Special?

Well, I have previously done some brainstorming on what I thought might happen in series 7 of Doctor Who, and in the 50th Anniversary Special, and now that these episodes have come to pass, are we there? Have all of my questions been answered? I think not. So what is going to happen in the Christmas Special?

It’s still Moffat at the helm, and he knows how to play a long con. I think he is still planning on answering questions. The 50th Anniversary special tells us this.

But there are also a lot of items on the table, and I don’t know that we’re going to see all of these things. However, there are some known things happening – so what can we expect, given what is known? Onwards, to spoilers and speculation!

Reaction: The Day of the Doctor

50th_poster_wallpaper_16x9

Yay!!! The day finally arrived, it is here. We have gotten to see the story that we have been waiting for since May. The simulcast of the event was such an incredible feat, but at the same time the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who – or any show for that matter – seems a worthy time to do it. Especially when that show is still going strong. So my quickie reaction is I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. It gives us a unique perspective on the life of the Doctor and on the one part of the Doctor’s life we have heard referenced, but not seen – and that is the Time War. It takes us into the mindset of the Doctor during the worst time of his life. There is a lot of timey-wimey going on, and a look at who the Doctor was compared to who he has become. It is an episode that you need to pay attention to because they pack it full of information.

If you did not get to see the episode then you are missing out and should stop reading now. There are going to be spoilers and then more spoilers, it is almost impossible to talk about this episode without spoilers. After the jump just remember as River Song, almost always, says, “Spoilers”. Continue reading

Doctor Strange – A Movie We’re (Sadly) Not Going To See

There’s a lot of characters, teams, and general intellectual property being tapped by Marvel Comics right now for movies. I feel like this is easiest to say given that Guardians of the Galaxy is going to be a thing – I’m not sure I had heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy before that. Now there’s talk of the Marvel Phase 3 Ant Man movie.

But one long-time Avenger who I just don’t see making their way onto the screen anytime soon is Doctor Strange. But given that, I still feel like it would be fun to cast the character. And actually, for a stand-along movie separate from other franchises, a Doctor Strange movie could be fun. So let me explore for a moment why I don’t see this movie happening, and then let me give you some of my casting ideas for the Doctor – Doctor Strange!

Busy

The Avengers called – he’s busy.

After Series Seven of Doctor Who… What Do I Think Might Happen in the 50th Anniversary Special?

The other day, I blogged about Doctor Who Series Seven. After looking back at that, I’m looking forward. It was a season of nostalgia, of memories of Doctor Who seasons we’ve never even watched. So, not perfect, but it’s kept us entertained.

So I also blogged about what we might expect from the 50th Anniversary Special, coming later this year – what seems likely, now that the special is the next episode?

I also explored some ideas of what a really epic plotline for Doctor Who might be – in terms of making a Doctor Who movie, but which could also be where they are going with a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. So let’s see if any of these ideas still have traction!

Let’s look back at my hypotheses, and consider what they’ve set up for themselves so far! Spoilers for Season Seven of Doctor Who!

Unanswered Questions I Hope Are Answered This Season Of Doctor Who

season 7.2 4 posters

A lot has happened in Doctor Who since Steven Moffat took the reins. The Eleventh Doctor has been a busy man. He’s lived several hundred years. Gotten married. He’s had a couple of different T.A.R.D.I.S. iterations now. Gone to war. These sorts of things.

However, the underlying conflict that is happening is still not completely explained, and this is what I want to know more about. I suppose I should say SPOILER WARNING at this point because I want to talk about some really specific thing that closed out Series 5 and Series 6 of Doctor Who. Onward! Continue reading
