"... [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.

EMO TEN! THE HAIR! THE FLASHBACK! THAT LOOK! THAT EPISODE! DONNA!

Basically, THIS EPISODE. <3.
Kali: dw :: doctordonna :: did we miss it?_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 12:01 am (UTC)
I love this episode. It is my favourite Christmas special. NOTHING SAYS CHRISTMAS LIKE SPIDERBABY GENOCIDE!
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:05 am (UTC)
It's my favorite too! I love everything about it. I have a hard time deciding between Ten and Rose together and Ten emoing over Rose. They're pretty equal. Plus, TECHNICALLY, Billie's in it, soooooo...

I mean the entire episode is EMO TEN/ROSE REFERENCES/DONNA. WHICH ARE ALL MY FAVORITE THINGS.
Kali: dw :: doctordonna :: you were right_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 12:07 am (UTC)
TCI is probably my second favourite but Ten is unconscious for like 90% of it which puts it below Runaway Bride, since Runaway Bride has two awesome leads who are both conscious the entire episode lirl.

AND EXACTLY. Ten, Donna, and Rose angst. What more could I ask from an episode?
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:08 am (UTC)
Same here.

LOL I WAS ABOUT TO SAY FIRE, BUT THEN I REMEMBERED THAT THERE IS FIRE. SO NOTHING.
Kali: sd :: i love my job_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 12:09 am (UTC)
THERE IS LOTS OF FIRE

AND ICE AND RAGE
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:10 am (UTC)
LOL YOUR ICON.

Hannah: Ten; timelord victoriousfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:18 am (UTC)
YES.

Tigers make great companions.

He hasn't had much luck with humans. He should give it a shot!
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:24 am (UTC)
Too bad Rose wouldn't let him keep Arthur. I'm sure he would have been fantastic. And Eleven likes cats.
Kali: dw :: peruvian folk band :: stateside_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 12:24 am (UTC)
LIRL maybe when the Ponds leave Eleven will just get a cat.
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:26 am (UTC)
OOOH I LIKE THAT ICON. IT IS NEW, YES?

He doesn't want to risk running into anymore blondes/gingers. They just lead to misery/heartbreak etc etc.
sherrilina: Ten (Doctor Who)sherrilina on December 31st, 2010 07:08 am (UTC)
Maybe he wants to be ginger though for the reverse--he's never been totally miserable while being ginger!
Kali: dw :: peruvian folk band :: stateside_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 07:49 am (UTC)
IT IS NEW. I TRIED TO CALL IT "PARTY IN THE USA" BUT IT DIDN'T WORK. I hope that once this episode airs though someone makes a fanvideo to that. I mean there's already



and



so I am sure it won't be long.
sherrilina: 11 Bow Tie Obsession (Doctor Who)sherrilina on December 31st, 2010 07:06 am (UTC)
OMG that needs to be a CIN special or something: The Adventures of Eleven and his new companion Fluffy!

Him talking to the cat in the Lodger was one of my favorite parts....hell, maybe he could take on of the kitten kids from Gridlock!
Alex: [DW] Ten Promo [Bride]redknightalex on December 31st, 2010 12:26 am (UTC)
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! :)
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:28 am (UTC)
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!
Alex: [DW] Rose with Ten over Shoulder [AoG]redknightalex on December 31st, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
Exactly. Anyway, what was American TV any good for anyway? (Ok, maybe a few things, but the writers never got it like this!)
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:34 am (UTC)
LOL. I love some American tv, but for how much I was devastated by Rose's departure, I'm glad the show/writers paid credit to her and the storyline (along with the rest of the characters) and she was a pretty constant presence throughout s3.
Alexredknightalex on December 31st, 2010 12:42 am (UTC)
That they did, that they did.

Whenever this subject is brought up I always, for some reason, think of The X-Files and, after Mulder left, he was like this abstract character they sort of talked about but never really discussed. Man how I hated that to no end. (And hopefully you know what I'm talking about.)
Hannahfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:49 am (UTC)
I haven't actually seen TXF, but I know what you're talking about. It's just frustrating because it's not realistic. Not that TV is really that realistic, but STILL.
Alex: [DW] Ten Suspicious [Bride]redknightalex on December 31st, 2010 12:56 am (UTC)
It's just frustrating because it's not realistic.

Right. People who leave your life don't just magically disappear from your heart/mind/soul (as much as you might want them to at times) and it shows in either your words or actions. Thankfully, RTD got that memo. Perhaps we should copy it and spread it around?
Anthea: doctor who: ten - really great hairkremlindusk on December 31st, 2010 01:10 am (UTC)
^ THIS TIMES INFINITY

If I'd known this was how it had played out, I wouldn't have stopped watching after series 2 ended. So glad I saw the error of my ways and decided to finally finish up the series. Oh, Russell, I'm sorry I ever doubted you, you wonderfully batshit-crazy Welshman.
Holly: Rose Tyler is still awesomejackspinkpearl on December 31st, 2010 05:23 am (UTC)
I agree so much! I have a friend who stopped watching before Series 2 ended because she'd heard what happened to Rose and she didn't like that "they'd just drop her like that!"
Artsy: DW: Ten!Cryinghiddenfantasy on December 31st, 2010 12:40 am (UTC)
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!
Artsy: DW: Ten!Geekhiddenfantasy on December 31st, 2010 12:50 am (UTC)
Phew! *wipes brow* And here I thought I was being weird liking the angsty, emo Doctor. ;)
Hannah: Ten; timelord victoriousfirstofoct on December 31st, 2010 12:52 am (UTC)
LOL. Perhaps. Maybe you've just found a group of people who think the same way!
Artsy: DW: RoseSarahJane!Heehiddenfantasy on December 31st, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
I like finding people who think the same way I do because it's quite rare around the area I'm from.
Hollyjackspinkpearl on December 31st, 2010 05:25 am (UTC)
Thank goodness we all think the same way, then! People on fandomsecrets were bashing Ten's emo and I was just like a kid who found out Santa Claus wasn't real.
Kali: dw :: ten :: victorious_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 07:33 am (UTC)
lol I saw that secret but didn't read the comments. Hating Ten does seem to be very in vogue now. Haters gonna hate etc.
Alex: [DW] Ten Against Wall [Doomsday]redknightalex on December 31st, 2010 01:00 am (UTC)
Nah, Ten is at his best when he's all emo and angsty (especially when it's the two together!). That's why I love him. :D

(Sorry for thread hijacking. Kinda. Sorta.)
Kali: dw :: ten :: you say i have a _thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 07:33 am (UTC)
I love emo Ten! And Crazy Ten. And... pretty much just Ten.

sherrilina: 10/Rose (Doctor Who)sherrilina on December 31st, 2010 07:01 am (UTC)
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
Kali: dw :: rose :: i need him_thirty2flavors on December 31st, 2010 05:55 pm (UTC)
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.
kilodaltonkilodalton on January 2nd, 2011 06:12 pm (UTC)
And maybe yeah because the shirt was there earlier.

Still gotta wonder why that shirt was over the rail in the console room .... >.^

Meeerrrr.... Must finish fics! Lol, still working--love the pics. :) Ten is so lovely.
Kali_thirty2flavors on January 2nd, 2011 03:49 am (UTC)
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.
shinkonokokoroshinkonokokoro on January 2nd, 2011 03:58 am (UTC)
Haha, yeah. I just want to finish some of the ones I have my eyes on before the masterlist is posted. :) The last one was really fun, and I'm enjoying this one as well.
emraldeyedauter: CI Picemraldeyedauter on January 3rd, 2011 11:38 am (UTC)
I love this song but oh this scene and the flash back to Rose still hurts my heart. Poor Ten.
