"... [The Runaway Bride] picked up seconds after we left him, saying goodbye to the love of his life. It would be rather callous if that wasn't recognised." - David Tennant


Sidenote: the ficathon will be wrapping up soon and I'll post a masterlist. Meant to do that today but didn't get around to it.

I love this episode. It is my favourite Christmas special. NOTHING SAYS CHRISTMAS LIKE SPIDERBABY GENOCIDE!

I think this was the precise moment that I feel in love with this show (at least New Who). It was one thing to create a character that was "the love of [the Doctor's] life" and have her taken away from him but to not completely ignore it the next episode takes a whole lots of guts in the writing process (imho). This will forever be my absolute favorite Christmas Special.

And I still listen to that song. I swear the tissues are to blow my nose! Honest! It gets cold sometimes....Oh, whatever! :)

The fact that they didn't ignore Rose's departure was such a shock to me after watching mostly American television all my life where cast members come and go all of the time without a mention. So it was such a relief considering the conditions in which she left!

Is it wrong that I really like emo!Ten? Him being emo just makes me want to pet him.
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:47 am (UTC)
LIRL he was emo for like 80% of his tenure as the Doctor, so I think it's perfectly alright!

come on take me home...
Aw, that line of the song and this scene get me everytime...:( Love this scene though, best "Doctor angsting about Rose" scene post-Doomsday, IMO, I have such a weakness for flashbacks, and Ten does such a good emo face here, magnified by the smartical glasses he's trying to hide his pain behind. Fave scene of the special for sure, and why I love this song so much...hell, I might even list this among my fave D/R moments period, despite Rose not even being there!

It was wonderful though that they showed him still remembering her and angsting about her loss (hell, that's the bulk of the season 3 description on the wiki epp list page!) after she was gone, it is realistic and shows how much he cared--and I was pretty scarred after the fail in "Angel" regarding Angel remembering/mentioning Cordy in season 5...*sigh* SO relieved that wasn't the case here...

Oh and that DT quote! <333 "Love of his life," fuck yeah! So wonderful to have DT be such a shipper, another reason to love that man! :D

Also I wonder if Murray Gold is a shipper, I mean even if RTD ordered the 3 "Doctor angsting about Rose" songs, one has to wonder....so amazing to have a ship with 3 canon songs dedicated to it! :)

Re: come on take me home...
Didn't Katherine Tate also call Rose "the love" of the Doctor's life?
Truth: You heard it from Donna!
The stars, blue, shiver in the distance: Kerplunk!criedtherabbit on December 31st, 2010 03:38 pm (UTC)
What always confused me is why they chose that specific clip of Rose and the Doctor to flashback to. Did they want a clip with that sweater, so that it ties back to when Donna finds it earlier? Did they want a clip with Tennant and Piper? I just think that the scene with Rose and Nine was more appropriate, since they were, you know, actually dancing. They even dipped, like the couple he is watching.

That's what I always think too! Poor Nine needs some love

lol I've always thought that too. I guess they wanted something with Ten...? And maybe yeah because the shirt was there earlier. But it does seem a bit funny.

Meeerrrr.... Must finish fics! Lol, still working--love the pics. :) Ten is so lovely.

Oh, don't worry too much -- my plan for closing down the ficathon is basically that I'll post a masterlist. People are welcome to peruse and fill prompts after that if they so choose, but it won't make it onto the masterlist, is all.

I love this song but oh this scene and the flash back to Rose still hurts my heart. Poor Ten.
