Well, to be fair I did have a couple of gadgets he probably didn't, like a teaspoon and an open mind.

Tick, Tock, goes the clock.....

Tick, tock, goes the clock and all the years they fly.
Tick, tock, and all too soon your love will surely die.

Tick, tock, goes the clock
He cradled and he rocked her
Tick, tock, goes the clock
Till River kills The Doctor.

Quote of the Week LI.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. ~ Bruce Lee

Barrowman Reiterates Return Wish

Barrowman Reiterates Return Wish:
Who would you like to see appear in Doctor Who’s fiftieth birthday bash in 2013?

Along the way, the Doctor has met some pretty interesting characters that could come back to either help or hinder him in his travels across the Universe.

One such character is Captain Jack Harkness, who is surely the twenty first century equivalent of the Brigadier, would be a welcome guest star to help out the Eleventh Doctor when the time comes.

Doctor Who fans last saw the good Captain in The End of Time, Part Two, when the Tenth Doctor set him up with Midshipman Frame as a goodbye present. Since then both the Doctor and the Captain have had more than enough fish to fry saving Earth and the Universe.

But as the time draws nearer and the Doctor is due to celebrate one of his biggest birthday’s ever, what can we expect? When the series was running during its 10th and 20th anniversaries we were treated to some very special stories. On its 30th and 40th we were not (oi, what about Scream of the Shalka?! – Ed)

But we’re going to have the show operating at maximum capacity during the big five-oh so it’s guaranteed that there will be something very special, something that actor John Barrowman wants to be a part of:

“It’s the 50th anniversary coming up of Doctor Who and Jack is an integral part to this story and, if I’m going to be a little self-absorbed, I would hope he would be involved, it would be a shame if he wasn’t.”

Our thoughts exactly!

SFX's Doctor Who The God Complex Spoiler Free Preview:
1 This is a weird one and make no mistake. And we don’t just mean it’s surreal. It’s weirdly structured as well, with a weird tone. A meandering plot that reflects the subject matter. It’s certainly got an intriguing mystery at its heart
2 There are moments like the more extreme episodes of The Prisoner
3 The monster is magnificent…
4 …Although there is one dodgy creature costume as well – unless it was supposed to be dodgy?
5 It’s an in-joke and continuity reference-spotters paradise. One remark alluding to a notorious Tom Baker story will make long-term fans smirk
6 There is a very unexpected final scene. And it’s not a cliffhanger
7 Some of the direction is breathtaking, creating an unsettling and spooky atmosphere. Lots of dolly zooms (think Jaws) and a couple of The Shining moments, plus a great chase scene near the end
8 Not entirely convinced by the major guest star. He seems acting in a different show
9 Another character with companion potential appears
10 There’s a startling Star Trek moment
11 It starts with a voiceover
12 Although it’s pretty much standalone, there are consequences
13 Dwalls
14 Someone has a right hissy fit
15 Is there a Rubik’s cube agenda gong on?
16 The Doctor admits to a previously unrevealed cheesy talent
17 “You’re doing it in your pants”
18 Somebody is fired. First as a joke, then for real
19 Rory keeps getting shown the exit
20 HD viewers need not adjust their sets. It’s supposed to look like that occasionally…
21 It gets quite emotional, but more “Big Bang” emotional than “The Girl Who Waited” emotional
22 The Doctor and somebody unexpected have a Leonardo DiCaprio/Claire Danes moment

Star Wars Blu-Ray Changes

Now anyone who know me knows that I'm a life long Star Wars fan, and needless to say I will be buying the nine disc Blu-Ray box set when it's released on 16th September, so I just want to address one aspect of fandom that is really pissing me off......the fans.

Now I don't mean the everyday fans who genuinely love the movies, or the casual fans who enjoy the movies, I mean the ones who claim to be fans but piss and moan every time a new release comes out, or if George Lucas decides to alter anything, then claim that George has 'raped their childhood'.

Here is some news for you......NOBODY is forcing you to buy the damned Blu-Rays, NOBODY is forcing you to watch the accursed movies. George Lucas is the creator of Star Wars and he is perfectly entitled to make as many changes as he sees fit, and let's be honest most people who watch the discs won't notice the difference anyway. If you don't like it don't watch.

The Blu-Ray release will be the official canon versions of the saga, but if you prefer, you can still watch the original non-canon versions on DVD, so you really have no need to complain.

To quote a certain actor who played a certain captain in another sci-fi franchise......'get a life!'

Steven Moffat interview on AOL

Steven Moffat interview on AOL: AOL did a fantastic and insightful interview with The Moff, which can be read here. In the interview, Moffat reveals some of the histories of his decisions...

I'm interested in the conception of the River Song story. In 'Silence in the Library,' did you already know she was going to be the daughter of a companion?

Oh no, no. I mean, it was one possible theory. Why is it somebody who's got such connections, who would that be? Is it just a future companion? What if it's somebody's got a lifelong commitment to the Doctor or his companion? So when I introduced Amy, I kept my options open [and used the name Pond]. I thought I was doing [the name thing] in plain sight and nobody [caught] it for a long while. But I didn't know at the time Karen was going to stay long enough for that story to come off. I didn't know if Alex would keep coming back.
