OK... It's about 1.30am.

Look, I love my family, they drive me insane, but I love them. So when I get a phone call a bit after 11pm asking me to drive round to my sister's place (that happens to be a short drive from the friend I'm visiting) because they think they might have been broken into... I do it. And thankfully I have a wonderful friend who went with me.

Of course, I arrive and find the backdoor is wide open. Oh good. So call the cops, wait for the cops, talk to the cops. Not certain if anything is missing. Cops say to call if there is. Wait for sister's friends to arrive. Sister's friend arrives, figures out stuff is missing. More cops arrive (this is what happens when they get calls from 2 places...) and tell them stuff is missing.

More of sisters friends arrive. My friend and I leave. Finally get back here a bit after 1am. Am feeling a little less inclined to sleep.

Sooooo, good weekend of visiting friends is feeling less good now.

Must be the weekend, I seem to be missing my notifications. I'm now convinced the people who work for LJ are actually rejects from Microsoft. It'd explain how things work fine one minute and are broken the next.

Having an interesting discussion with [ profile] jer832 today, we figured out why in Moffat's era of Doctor Who the universe is so often rebooted, and parts of it are getting wiped away or it freezes and likes to start repeating itself....


If we're lucky he'll take it back to Windows XP or upgrade to W7. Actually given they have time travel, maybe they can upgrade to W8?

I keep getting the impression that an oddly large number of people haven't watched S1 of NewWho. 

I saw this comment last night about how Rose never stood up to the Doctor. Yes, in S2 she didn't stand up to him directly as much, but then she didn't really need to, he was, by his standards, well behaved (except for that certain episode that I'm choosing to pretend doesn't exist).
However, in S1 she was constantly standing up to the Doctor. There's the obvious example of literally standing up to the Doctor in 'Dalek'. But there was early times when she tried to reason with him, say back in 'The Unquiet Dead' when she tried to explain that using corpses was wrong. Standing up to someone isn't always about direct confrontation though. Sometimes it's just about making them stop and think before they act. There's no guarantee they'll listen, and early on, the Doctor didn't really listen to Rose. 

Then of course there's the people out there that assume the relationship between the Doctor and Rose was always the same. Straight from the beginning. I don't see it. I S1 I see the development of their relationship. She joins the Doctor on the TARDIS as a friend, the romantic side of their relationship develops over the entire of the S1 arc. It's part of what made their story, both Nine/Rose and Ten/Rose so wonderful. S1 was the development of it, S2 was more like their enjoyment/acceptance of this. You saw both of them and their relationship grow. Rose did not fall in love with the Doctor instantly, despite the amount of people who seem to think she did.

The comparisons I see with Rose and Martha do not make sense for so many reasons. But the one that perplexes me the most is the one that said they both fell for the Doctor straight away. I love Martha, but I can understand her confusion with the Doctor. Forget lord of time, Ten was lord of mixed signals there. So Martha fell for him quickly, it still wasn't instant. 

In all honesty, I'm not going to touch the 'Rose is clingy/needy/whiny/jealous' issue right now. Nor the issue of 'the Doctor didn't love Rose'. Though really, maybe I missed something, but I DON'T GET IT!

Anywoo..... I'm done rambling for now...

Just in case it's been missed...
Seriously, a Doctor Who movie while there's a TV show running? And starting from scratch? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? 
Sigh. I don't like it. 
It could just be rumours.... Don't know yet.
