Doctor Who Season 6 marks the second season we have Matt Smith as the Doctor. Huge improvement! His acting from Season 5 to Season 6 has progressed wonderfully… I think he has definitely found himself and I enjoy watching him with Amy and Rory.
- The Impossible Astronaut
- Day of the Moon
- The Curse of the Black Spot
- The Doctor’s Wife
- The Rebel Flesh
- The Almost People
- A Good Man Goes to War
- Let’s Kill Hitler
- Night Terrors
- The Girl Who Waited
- The God Complex
- Closing Time
- The Wedding of River Song
The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon were fave episodes for obvious reasons – we are introduced to the (impending) death of the Doctor, The Silence, the awesome way The Silence is dealt with (imo), Canton, more River Song!, and the whole bit where the Tardis can’t determine whether or not Amy is pregnant. AND the little girl regenerating in the street! How about that?!?!?! Ohhhhh Time Lord Mysteries!!! Makes for a great start to the season!!!
Episode four, The Doctor’s Wife was poignant, beautiful, and well done. The Tardis’s conscience is transferred into the body of a mortal and for the first time in 900+ years, she and the Doctor can say, “Hello.” ::tear:: One of my favorite lines in there had to be when Idris (Tardis) told The Doctor she wanted to see the universe and stole him…. how sweet! ::fangirls:: Truly, she is the Doctor’s Wife, with him through thick and thin, through time and space. Old girl.
A Good Man Goes to War was fantastic. I nearly added The Almost People but only for the ending scene where we discover Amy was not Amy the entire time but a copy of Amy via the flesh!! Gahhhhhh what the hell, we got tricked and didn’t even freakin know it! I thought The Rebel Flesh and The Almost People were fillers but they had a point! Anyways, A Good Man Goes to War… quite possibly my favorite scene was when Amy was holding Melody and warning them the child’s father was a warrior, thousands of years old, etc etc and coming to save them…. almost had me there… it wasn’t the Doctor, but Rory! Centurion Rory! Gawd I love this show! It was rather cool seeing a lot of villains reappear on the Doctor’s side… and BAM! Melody Pond is River Song.. because the only water in the forest is the River. DDDDDDDDDD
Let’s Kill Hitler was hilarious. And fun! We get to see Alex Kingston return, we get to see Hitler locked in the closet… and we also see that River used up her remaining regenerations to keep the Doctor alive. My only question… how many did she use before? 1 – little girl from episode 2; 2 – as Mels; 3 – as River… no telling how many times she regenerated before we saw her as Mels and River right??? Which means she can potentially pop up later portrayed by another actress right??? ::ahem ahem ahem:: I’ll keep dreaming then.
The Girl Who Waited… another beautiful episode. So sad. I really admire and enjoy and LOVE the love Amy and Rory share. “You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, when you meet them you think, “Not bad. They’re okay.” And then you get to know them and… and their face just sort of becomes them. Like their personality’s written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful.” – Amy Pond. Oh man… I had to rewind and watch again. That was beautiful. And that’s all I’m going to say regarding that episode… I felt bad for older Amy.
And we skip to the season finale, The Wedding of River Song. Let me just say that I realized at the end of The God Complex where he leaves Amy and Rory behind to the start of Closing Time… a hundred years, give or take has passed for the Doctor. He traveled for almost a hundred years without Amy and Rory… I say this because in Impossible Astronaut, the “him” that was killed said he was over 1,000 years old and I was FOR SURE he was still in his 900s! Someone correct me if I’m wrong? The episode itself was a bit of a jamble but I believe my favorite moments mostly involved Amy. Amy drawing a picture of Rory and “looking” for him still (hahaha), Amy putting the eyepiece back on Madame Kavorian and saying “River Song didn’t get it all from you, Sweetie.” (MUAHAHHAHAHAHAH <3 Amy!!), and the end where she is overjoyed with River and then realizes….. “And I’m his…. mother-in-law.” <– insert shocked, horrified, stumped look… LMAO. My other fave part has got to be River and the Doctor’s interaction and whole marriage sequence. The episode overall isn’t as riveting as some of the other season finales but it is still not bad at all… I suspect there is more waiting for us…. Doctor Who?
But a side ramble…. Oh River…. you and the Doctor… your love story is one of the saddest I’ve ever come across. Moving in opposite directions along the time stream… so sad, so so so so so so sooooooooooooo sad. It breaks my heart… and remembering the episode where River gives her life for the Doctor back in Tenant’s era…. ::tear:: I never imagined how they would take River’s character from that episode and weave it into this magnificent storyline. I love it! Alex Kingston is so talented… makes my heart ache. Ach!
BUT we know River does eventually know the Doctor’s true name (how she got Ten to believe her) and she gets his sonic screwdriver.. maybe she made one herself… more awaits us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t wait for the Christmas Special!!!!!!
I’ve decided to split my blog in half… undoing what I did about a year ago merging my personal and scifi blog together. Don’t ask. I’m a woman, I can do what I want!! But it is going to stay like this henceforth… I don’t want to bog people down with non scifi/anime/dorky/entertainment posts so I will just section that stuff off.
Science fiction, anime, conventions, movie/book/tv reviews, and random dorky things will belong in this blog.
Food posts, recipes, beauty talk, rants, and the like will go in my BRAND SPANKING NEW (not quite cuz I imported a lot of the old posts over hehehhehehe) blog (click on it for link)… HAIR LIKE EINSTEIN. I like it. The name is eccentric and wacky like me.
Please follow if you want or disregard.
I shall try my best to churn out a fantastic scifi related post at least once a week. Promise. Except during exam weeks. Thanks for all the love and support!
