Dear flist, do not faint, but a non-icon related post about Doctor Who! Current Doctor Who! Minorly spoilery!
I have been meaning to type up some interesting things/snippets from old DWMs (as typing up practise and general altruism and stuff), as I have them going back to the 1990s. I did not intend to start with the current issue. However, it arrived yesterday and made me laugh twice on a brief glance through, so I thought I would share three things.
(Also, I still have only watched The Impossible Astronaut
, so if you want to be more spoilery, please kidnap these quotes and take them back to your own LJ, thank you. Sorry, but I am working hard on being an ostrich.)
First, Steven Moffat quote on the story-arc this season, that I thought some people might find of interest/reassuring. (DWM is generally a reliable from-the-horse's-mouth source):
"That's what you should do with a first episode - funny, accessible sci-fi. The Impossible Astronaut
was a departure from the norm, and that's good, that makes it exciting, but that's never going to be the paradigm. Never, ever. The fact that we're making people wait weeks for the story to play out is exciting to do once, but not every year."
And, under the cut: minor spoiler (the quote DWM have chosen as a teaser from Let's Kill Hitler
), something else amusing, and a thought I had on the upcoming episode.( Snippety-snippets )
More DW excitement to come in between icons! (Well, maybe exciting is over-selling it, but I have
found some interesting things.)
