So i’m finally getting around to posting this; it’s like a month late because I wanted to make sure I could properly credit everyone and stuff, and then school got in the way, but whatever it’s here! This is the HUGE Doctor Who shoot we had at Katsucon 2013, and when I say huge I mean we were shooting for at least 3 Hours. Without further adieu, here’s the credits. Please please PLEASE do not remove the credits, you can get rid of my rambles but the credits should remain.

OW MY FEELINGS
One of the most astounding mysteries of the world is this ancient tile pattern in Greece, dated to about 1,500 B.C.
It was little more than a curiosity until 2008 when its resemblance to a QR Code was recognized. First photographed in 1871 by the British Antiquities Society, they were known as the “Chinese Box Tiles” owing to the closest thing anyone had seen to the strange pattern. Little was known about the titles except that they were installed along with other beachfront roads on the isle of Igrigoria in ancient times.
In was in 2008 that QR codes became popular enough that a traveler recognized the tiles as bearing an unmistakable resemblance to the computer code which had only been developed 3,500 years after the tiles were first laid. It was another two years before anyone with a QR capable phone traveled to the island to attempt a capture.
The mystery only deepened when the phone was able to recognize the code, which lead to the original Nyan Cat video on youtube.
Alright, what fucker went back in time?
I seem to develop a crush on each new incarnation of the doctor.
He’s waited so long. In the dark. And the cold. And the diamonds. Until you came. Bodies so hot. With blood. And pain.
This is, literally, one of the best episodes in new Who. Everything about it was so smartly written. I know when we think of creep factor in DW, we tend to always think of Moffat, but this was one of the few non-Moffat antagonists that seriously scared the shit out of me.This thing is ancient…it had been there for who knows how long, just waiting, biding its time. Who knows how many identities it has stolen in its life time…and it’s so powerful it could even “steal the voice” of a Time Lord.
Mind you, not only does this thing “steal someone’s voice”, it shows a clear capability to actually learn. This thing is learning as the episode progresses, creating a sync with whatever organism it encounters while it learns to mimic it, and mimic its thoughts, and possibly learn to think like said organism at a quicker speed. This creature, literally, became the Doctor for a brief moment and began to think faster than him.
There’s never even an explanation of what this thing is. You never even get to see it. It’s this entity, this thing. I can’t begin to explain how fucking brilliant this episode was. People can hate RTD all they want, but this episode was masterful. I’d say this thing, which is never even named, stands as probably the absolute fucking creepiest antagonist in the new series, followed really closely by the Silence and the ancient entity in The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.
There are also a lot of complaints about the way Davis writes the 10th Doctor and how arrogant he is, and I think this is one of the few episodes where his arrogance nearly gets him killed. This thing only took over his voice because he just had to tell everyone in the room how clever he was.
This isn’t even taking into account that the entire episode was told in one set. They never leave the shuttle bus It was nerve wrecking, and a brilliant decision. This is one of the reasons why I think series four of new Who is one of the absolute best in the new series overall.
this. this episode.
Did you know that in Doctor Who, the Doctor’s bow tie is red if the episode takes place in the future, and blue if it is in the past? (It’s true for the tenth Doctor too. His suit was blue if they went forward in time and the brown if they went back in time.)
wat how did I not notice this before?? I must rewatch everything.
