Media Review: Doctor Who Red Nose Day shorts

0 COMMENTS • This post is filed under: Media Monday

Titles: Space and Time
Vague Plotline: The Doctor and Rory are trying to fix the Tardis, but Amy distracts Rory and the Tardis does an Emergency Landing inside itself. This creates a space loop – impossible to get out of, at least without a little bit of timey-wimey help from the Doctor!

My Review: OK, so I promised no Doctor Who until the series started, but there are new episodes! OK, so it’s only like 10 minutes total, but still! NEW EPISODES!!!

*sigh* I am such a fangirl.

Right, as with any Doctor Who post  **SPOILERS AHEAD**

I love the Red Nose Day shorts. True, they don’t always do them, but they have THE funniest lines in the entire show – and that’s saying something! I mean who could forget Tennant’s “Hey, I’m the Doctor, I can save the universe using a kettle and some string! And look at me! I’m wearing a vegetable!” [Time Crash – between seasons 3 and 4 if you missed it]. This one was no exception! Matt Smith brings his own brand of funny and Karen Gillian plays up Amy without even batting an eye.

Again, this is mostly a collection of thoughts – end result is I loved it, cause it’s Doctor Who and I love it anyways.

Am I the only one who wants to know what Amy wanted to talk to the Doctor about? Before she gets distracted by the fact that the Doctor is letting Rory help drive the Tardis and she’s never gotten a go (what happened to The Lodger? Does she not remember this?) she says she has a question. What is that question?! Is it important? They never say! It’s been bugging me. A lot.

Amy and Rory make the PERFECT couple! I really hope we get to see a lot more of them interacting! “An unexpected house” LOL!

The Doctor is so adorably clueless! I spotted that one miles away and he just asks “How could it be her fault!” Although I would argue it’s more the Doctor’s fault than Amy’s cause there are tons of different desktop themes (as Doctor 5 says in Time Crash) and he chose the one with the Glass floor.

Of course the safest spot is inside the Tardis! I could have told you that!

Question: How come when the Doctor goes through it’s instantaneous, but when Amy comes through there’s something like a 10 minute lag? OK, so it makes a better story, but it kinda bothers me.

Rory: “Why do I get slapped?” Cause you deserve it, that’s why! lol

Pond flirting with herself? Really? How conceited can you get?

“Pond, put some trousers on!” – what you wanna bet she wears a skirt in every episode in series 6? Seriously, they’re going to milk this joke for forever!

Anyways, thanks for sticking with me through the ramblings! If you haven’t watched these yet, go look them up on Youtube – they’re hilarious! (if you haven’t watched much Doctor Who, you might want to start a little earlier in the timestream – say series 1 from 2005. You’ll be quite lost, otherwise!) Apparently there’s a prequel to series 6 coming out tomorrow, and then only 1 month till the real thing starts up again! So excited!!!
