The first half of the season finale of Doctor Who aired Saturday and it was a doozy. There was so much that happened this episode and it has potential Who ramifications. Many people have done discussions or reviews, and so instead I just want to take a moment to discuss a few of my favorite moments from the episode. The episode itself was great, but there were definitely some moments that stood out from the rest. They either really activated the characters or did such a great job of the reveal moments. The tension that these moments created kept us at the edge of our seats!

Long before Series 8 of Doctor Who started, there were rumors and speculation about the return of the Doctor’s old, eternal nemesis: the Master. Another Time Lord like the Doctor, the Master has been around on the show for decades, with all sorts of evil, sneaky, chaotic schemes.
The Master returned in recent years to be the one other Time Lord not trapped in the time-lock that holds in the Time War. That meant he was even more free to release his schemes on the universe – especially because the Doctor, the one person who could probably stop him, didn’t expect him.
He showed back up, was a connection to the Time Lords, who were manipulating him to return to the universe… and we now know the Time Lords could actually come back, so anything is possible! So even with the Master seemingly defeated and gone, I imagine that’s happened before in the past, and we should never consider him dead and gone. So the stage is set for the return of the Master – so what could happen with him? Thoughts and opinions to follow!

David so far has been the one doing the character alignments so far and I thought I would give it a shot. To start I needed to do something that I love, and that is why we are getting the character alignments for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now one problem I had with this list is that many of these characters could probably fit in multiple spots, but I tried to go with what I felt was their dominant characteristic. It is definitely an interesting practice in a sort of short style character study. The alignment that you put a character in says a lot about that character and what you perceive about them. So without further ado, here is my Buffy Character Alignments. Continue reading
