About the Specials

Just my take on what's coming.....

The Doctor has been see filming in a variety of different places and with a variety of people. First I wanna address the issue of the master. There HAVE been reports of him filming and even being pictured in a shot with Wilf. The debate seems to be is he, or is he an extra. Well there is an extra who does look a lot like him.

Simm (Planet Gallifrey)

Now me I would like to believe it is because the Doctor needs a worthy foe, the Master to me has always been his arch nemesis, and in another way, friend. Dont yell, its true, he could have destroyed him utterly many times, and his DEATHS usually resulted because the Doctor COULDN"T save him. Plus if you consider the audios or books, it has always made it clear the Master and Doctor were the oldest of friends before they became enemies..

But the knock four times.....maybe the Master's sound of drums....but I believe it is more than that. It is either what the actual drums are, death etc, or an act that will happen, like the doctor will nearly die 4 times, or someone close will.

But here is the 1 element no one is talking about....when the Doctor regenerates will he though. Bare with me here. He's on his 10/11 regen cycle depending on what you believe, I belive he used up a regeneration, Matt Smith may be the 11th Doctor but on his 12th regen cause one got used. Why didn't Doctor Regenerate? Simple...Rose..All I'm gonna say...Rose. But since then he is getting darker, and darker. Regen may help this...but I don't think so. According to most media etc it started with the 6th Doctor, and I just don't mean the Valeyard. When Davison regenerated he felt it going wrong...although yeah think they all did, but it felt different. 7th Doctors was a clown, but that changed drasticly, becoming a manipulator and hinting at being more than a timelord. 8th Doctor movie was friendly humanish, but if you, and I do consider the Audio plays cannon he gets very dark at times. And by the accounts of books and comics, very dark in those aswell, which we all know eventually leeds to the destruction of the TimeLord's at his hands, maybe more than once.

9th Rose helped meloow him some, which helped 10th be so close with Rose his heart having mended some. BAM Looses her, MArtha, Donna etc....his dark side become more and more apparent. Yes he is still a funny happy go at times, but its like a switch gets turned and then darkness. And with what is happening in the specials likely to get pushed right over.

So this brings me to my long winded point. How will Matt's Regen change the doctor...I think it will be a degenerate....I think a simple regen will not fix dear old doc, think something will happen on such a level that Doctor will either get younger, loose his memories or soething further that may actually reboot the character somehow. This would suck, as I can't stand reboots. But it might be the onlt way for Doctor to get rid of the dark side of his nature.

But....We will see. As for Rose/Donna/Martha/Jack etc. I believe since Sarah Jane is showing up, unless that is for a clip for her show only, which would be kinda cool, then they should have Rose. But that leave too much to cover in 2 eps...so I think it will be just Donna and Sarah Jane, and Maybe Jack since they could use a clip on Torchwood. Rose coming through with his human version...would be terrible, unless and only if the remaining part of the Doctor went into the human version somehow. Making Matt Smith truly Doctor 11 and Human Doctor/ Real Doctor Merge leaving with Rose.

So if not the MAster who would I like the Villian to be? Rassilon. Just see Patrick Stewart season finale first ep ending, "Hello Doctor! Welcome to the game of Rassilon!, and this time you will die!" In the finale Rassilon brings the TimeLords back but this time around they are no longer passive guardian of the web. And the Doctor goes on the run...again.

New Stuff A Coming............

Ok Work all caught up, finished work on a few other projects and got back from a week trip, and just ordered 2 Doctor Who Classic Figurines, 4th & 6th from ebay, since in Canada and we SUCK for getting any decent stuff here. Not too bad a deal about 66.00 CAD for the 2. Will get the Peter Davison one next but would like to find one of the rares with the celery, just doesn't seem right without it. These be my first actual official Doctor Who stuff ever lol how sad is that. Seen them all, read most, but hard to get hands on lol. Maybe 1 of these times gonna fly over and kiss my VISA goodbye when I am done lol

Not sure if I will try and get the others from the wave or not, as I know ROBOT is aswesome, but the villians..bah..not big on really. Debating on which Tardis to get, thought maybe the USB HUB version but not sure yet as I hear rumores wave 2 or 3 of the classics will be a Tardis to build.

For those who don't know what the hell I'm talking about Character Options produced a line of Classic Doctor Figurines a while back, 4th, 5th, 6th Doctors, could Robots from the 4th Doctor Era...Companion Lella...name of them and ep escape me at the moment, a Zygon and....o buggar froget..ummm...wang something maybr...either way...seem to be very nice versions. Wave 2 has ben hinted at to have the 7th & 8th Doctor but I have also seen reference to the 1st and 2nd Doctors....so dunno. My goal will definately to get a decent of of each of the Doctors when possible.

9th Doctor seem to be realitivly easy to get so gonna wait on that for a bit, 10th doctor....well I have seen quite a few, I want the fgure with the long coat and regular suit not blue, lost out on bid on the last attempt lol. Aparently this figure comes with a Rose version and Cassandra....well may end up getting the companion set so whould be duplicate Rose....so....can't win.....lol

Last gotta get a Dalek, so many versions.....hard to tell with pics....but just gotta get me one lol maybe 2 lol..........anyways enough about toys lol

So very dissapointing results from submitted Doctors for contest, didn't even recieve 1 of each, a few did same ones, but recieved a very very small fraction of the entries I had expected and had contacted me with pictures of them early on. This may be a result of my lapse of promoting so I don't blame anyone. Thos who did send me the entries will all recieve a special object as promised. It will be posted here when I have them ready.

As for the future, well this week coming I will be sitting down and deciding which mods need to be completed and making a time frame to do so. I will also begin editing and getting back to work on Interior.

I also have a new blog coming, It's been in the works for awhile, it will be based on Doctor Who as Well, but more of a Show thing, then mod. Info on books, toys, etc... Likely to come on line end of May early June. Want to have most of the content in place before going public. I have the layout and graphics designed, some have already been spotted lol. Futher info will come on this about a week before.

So you can look forward to seeing some new mods coming up very soon, and all that good stuff. I have recieved a few inquires about giving better explanastions of features with my mods, and I will look at coming up with some kind of guide for these. So for those who keep poping in hoping for some news and downloads, by the end of next week it all begins again!
