fridgepunk: A sign on garrus' back reading "Shoot a rocket into my ugly stupid face" (Default)


I think it's the little tennant head flick when he's emphasising a word that makes it.

Jumping off the back of [personal profile] lizbee's post about the events of Day of the Moon here (which contains spoilers, it should also be pointed out that cut for spoilers for When a Good Man Goes to War and for the first two episodes of the sixth series )

Of course this will never get mentioned on the show because the two golden rules of Doctor Who are:

1) At the end of a story the monster is always defeated and

2) What happens in a space suit, stays in the space suit.

A quick check of the relevant dates involved means that it's physically impossible for the (currently nameless) maid/housekeeper involved in Doctor Who's Interspecies Victorian Lesbian Crime Fighting Duo (or IVLCFD for short) to be a younger version of Mrs. Hudson from before she came to own the flats that Holmes & Watson eventually meet/live in, because Mrs. Hudson lets her flat out to watson the year before Jack the Ripper was stalking the streets of whitechapel.

But it was such good fanon! Poot.

(though everyone who's incorporating that twist into canon to explain past behaviour of various characters, you are all awesome and your proofs seem sound)

Was going through the MemoryAlpha archive looking for those really awesome TNG episodes, got to the Darmok page, and... there's this:

"I've seen lots of Star Trek: The Next Generation, I think it's a lovely show - but there's one episode, the billing for which is so fascinating I've actively avoided ever seeing it," Davies explained. "I love the idea so much, I'd rather think about it. Forever. The episode is called 'Darmok', and the synopsis simply says that Captain Picard is trapped on a planet with an alien who can only talk in metaphors. Wow. That sounds brilliant. How does that work? What happens? How does it end? I've got no idea - not seen it! But it keeps resonating with me. I've just looked up its TX date, and it's almost 20 years old. I've been thinking about that story and its potential for almost 20 years! Would it have sustained itself for that long in my head if I'd seen it on BBC2, long ago in 1991? I think the mystery keeps the concept alive. Here I am, still wondering, right now! And I can see the idea bleeding into my own work. In 2008, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called 'Midnight'. Is it like 'Darmok'? I don't know. But stripped down to its essentials, it's a story about a hero, an alien, and words. That's practically the same billing. Maybe the two shows are profoundly different, but I know for a fact that all those years of wondering about 'Darmok' led me to that script."


I offer it without comment, simply because I feel it explains oh so much about RTD's writing tics.
