Time of The Doctor rant

Hello Whovians so Christmas has come and gone and with it so did the Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, and to be honest I was so disappointed. Matt deserved so much more than that so I've come today with a rant on Moffat's failure to give Matt the send off he deserved.

since the beginning of Series seven Whovians have been put on an emotional rollercoaster ride, that started with the announcement that two of the Doctor's best companions would be handing in their TARDIS keys, and leaving the show, so Whovians sat through the first half of series seven trying to prepare to say goodbye to our Ponds, then came the day, a thousand hearts breaking as we watched his two shatter on the ground, when his Amelia Pond said the words, "Raggedy Man goodbye." then we were given hope.

Hope that the Doctor wouldn't be alone, in the form of Victorian nanny, Clara, and even that was taken away, only to be replaced by another Clara, one with the same face, and voice but none of the memories.

Then came the third big announcement, the cast for the Fiftieth Anniversary was released, and we saw two very dear and familiar names and faces, in David Tennant our Tenth Doctor and the love of the Doctor's life Billie Piper, or Rose Tyler, and the announcement that Matt Smith was signed for series eight, that our Raggedy Doctor would indeed stick around.

Then in June our worlds were shaken again when Matt Smith came out with the news, he would be hanging up the bowtie, and passing on his sonic to another, and fans around the globe cried out that they didn't want him to go. so we laughed through our tears as we watched our Doctors join together to fight the Zygons in the much awaited Day of The Doctor, one of Matt Smiths finest hours, as he, David Tennant, and the forgotten Doctor John Hurt joined forces, and did the one thing that the Doctor has wanted to do since the show was rebooted in 2005 they saved Gallifrey from the Time War, and the words given to Eleven in that gallery by that very familiar and iconic man that, "Gallifrey falls no more." and hope was given to the Doctor as he stood on that cloud looking up at Gallifrey, with all of him around him.

Then came the wait it may have only been a month, but it felt like years, then came Christmas night, all of us Whovians gathering around our T.Vs some with sonic screwdrivers in hand, dressed in our Whovian apparel, to say goodbye to our Raggedy Doctor.

It all started fine, the Doctor following signals, ending up on a Dalek ship with a severed eye stalk, very Matt, and it started to build there, we were shown the birth of Silence and what they really meant when they said Silence will fall when the question was asked, they even brought back the crack all the way from series 5 and had Gallifrey calling to them from inside, and I personally was like yes this is going to be epic, then The Doctor sends Clara away, and she hangs onto the TARDIS an act that if we remember correctly has happened before

and it lead to this

oh and let's not forget the fact that when Clara was riding the TARDIS while she was in flight 300 years pass for the Doctor, and he starts to get old now this isn't so odd seeing as he doesn't have his TARDIS and all, but he doesn't even seem to really doing anything aside from fixing broken toys and making barns bigger on the inside, we don't see him joining the fight against the aliens that besiege the planet, aside from slight cameos throughout the episode, he just doesn't seem like the Matt Smith Doctor we all loved from the moment he was bouncing about the TARDIS yelling I STILL GOT LEGS! Moffat rushed through so much of the action we barely got to see our Raggedy man be an active part in the show, then Clara gets back and all he does is send her away and go on doing the same thing he did for 300 years, what's that you ask? well we don't know because Moffat made so we blinked and haha the Doctor is now very properly old, and seems just a little bit senile, and then Clara comes back and they crack a Christmas cracker in which there's a poem that seems as though it's really written for the Doctor, and then the Daleks get there.

At this moment I'm expecting that, this is how he'll go, by Dalek, he climbs the stairs very slow because Moffat decided to make him properly old, and Clara pleads with the crack, plead for the time lords to give the Doctor this last gift, now this part was actually when it seemed like Moffat was starting to realize where he was really going with this, then the crack is gone, and it seems it took all hope with it. while outside the Doctor is delivering a speech, telling them that they failed that in the end it was age that got him, at this moment I realized that's how they were going to do it. old age.

I nearly started to cry then, because this is not the ending that Matt deserved. he earned one that had everything Matt Smith to it, he should have gone out in a blaze of glory, not I'm going to grow old and die. It was like Moffat forgot what actor he was writing this for, and made the Raggedy Doctor fizzle out.

Matt earned so much more of a regeneration than that, while yes Moffat had the time lords give him another life cycle, and he used some of that energy to completely wipe the Daleks out of existence (again) it was far to little, much too late. because Matt deserved to go out the way his Doctor lived, a truly epic speech like the warning to the angels



even in the end of Day of The Doctor

and while yes there was a speech and it held that Matt Smith emotion, it seemed like Moffat only wrote it in there because it was expected it held impact but not in the same way, it seemed like Moffat was only putting it in there because Matt is known for his speeches, and I feel like Matt delivered it perfectly, but Moffat placed it wrong

and then we blinked and then he was gone basically, it was like hey here is this heartfelt final speech from your beloved Matt Smith and boom here's Capaldi! it was too fast they should have slowed it made it have more of an impact like when Ten said I don't want to go, or when nine said that they were fantastic and you could watch the features change through that iconic gold light, but they just had Matt nod and it was done. so it really didn't even give fans enough time to shed a tear for their Doctor before another was thrust on them, and for this Moffat I feel it's time for you to step down, before you ruin the show like you ruined Matt's final episode. Because you took this huge epic man that was our Raggedy Eleventh Doctor, and you made him fizzle, when he should have gone out like he existed, and will exist in the hearts of Whovians everywhere.

With a bang
 A twirl

the cool

and a great big geronimo

so with this I say goodbye Raggedy man you will always be the Doctor, who became my best friend. so GERONIMO Matt and please don't ever forget us, we are the fans who waited with Amelia Pond, who's hearts shattered with yours, so please I ask you don't be sad, because, while you hung up yours the fandom is getting up, straightening our bowties, brushing off our fezzes, grabbing our sonics raising them in the air and saying Geronimo for our Raggedy Doctor

Walking dead freak out,

Hello so today I'm going to be ranting about my latest feels attack, the Walking Dead.

 today I watched the latest episode, and I'm pissed with how it happened, I legitimately cried my eyes out when I watched it, and I have never wanted a character to die as bad as I did today, even if his actor guest starred in my favorite show of all time, he needed to die, yes that's right people David Morrisey,

His part as the Governor crossed the final line this week, though not as much of a line as the writers did, I'll try not to post too many spoilers for the benefit of all of my fellow Walking Dead fans, I will say this if someone isn't still alive come February, I will scream, and I might give up on the show, though that probably won't happen, this week too damn many people died, and I cried way too many tears, who would do what they did? I hate this, I am angry with them for what they did, but I also can't wait till it returns in February. now I'll conclude this with one message. 

Let little asskicker live.
 who could kill a face like this?

the big Five O has come and past

Hello Whovians The Doctor here all Twelve of me, and I would just like to say thank you, for everything. Without you there would be no fifty year celebration of my show, without you there would be no show. 
Without Whovians there would not be people to this day offering random strangers jelly babies, a scarf a mile long would just be a scarf that nobody would understand, a recorder would just be an instrument, a Canary yellow roadster would just be a cool old car, celery would just be a vegetable, a police box would be a police box,  a fez would just be a hat, a bow tie would be a ridiculous piece of clothing that hipsters wear, Geronimo would be a word long forgotten, allons-y would just be french for let's go, brainy specs would just be something people wore to make themselves look geeky, fantastic would just be a word, a statue would be a statue, and not something out of nightmares, a shadow would be a shadow, and the words who turned out the lights would just be a question, 3D glasses would just be worn in a theater, a jammy dodger would just be a cookie, bad wolf would still just be a part of a children's story, no sentence would have even been started on Bad Wolf Bay, a river would just be water flowing in one direction, a pond would just be a body of water, a rose a flower, a fob watch would just be a way of telling time, a screwdriver was just for fastening a screw, a moment would just be a point in time, paper wouldn't be psychic, a phone could never possibly call anywhere any time in space, an umbrella was just to protect you from rain, and a crack was just a crack, and the words I don't want to go wouldn't break hearts everywhere, and a TARDIS would not be real in the hearts of millions, Thank you Whovians without you we wouldn't be here without you this show wouldn't have lasted ten years let alone fifty. We brought hope to you, but you will always give hope to us. Allons-y and geronimo, you are all fantastic, and maybe with your help we could keep going for fifty more years

Hello Whovians not that I expect many of you are on today, seeing as it's the day, The Day Of The Doctor.
 So I'll keep my introduction short, seeing as we are all eager to become glued to our T.V's and computer screens. Today I present to you my 50 favorite companions Doctors One offs several time guests and enemies, though of course I want to kick it off with a brilliant fan made trailer for the Fiftieth 

#50. Jackson Lake. He was a very memorable character, because even though he wasn't he held the same characteristics of the Doctor and harnessed them perfectly

#49. Kazran Sardic. The Ebeneezer Scrooge of Doctor Who, with a little bit more of a wibbly wobbly story line.  

#48. Abigail Pettigrew, Kazran's love, who's voice could charm the fish that swam in the sky

#47. Craig Owens. Who can't like the guy who let the Doctor become his Lodger? plus there's Stormy we all love Stormy

#29. Romana a fellow Time Lord employed by the white guardian to help the Doctor find the Key to Time 

#28. Davros the age old enemy of the Doctor the creator of the Doctor's greatest foes 

#27. Cybermen the most terrifying thing there is when you think about the advances of technology  

#26. Mickey Smith or Mickey the Idiot

#25. The Fifth Doctor The Doctor with the Celery, he is one of the first Doctor's I as a Whovian ever saw

#24. The Fourth Doctor, my first Doctor, when my father heard they were coming out with a new series of Doctor Who he decided that we absolutely had to see where it started for him before we watched the new one

#23. K-9 The original Tin Dog

#22. Donna Noble The most important woman in the universe Donna showed that you don't need to be remarkable to be great

#21. Madame Kovarian the Vilest woman I've seen on Doctor Who to date

#20. Bad Wolf she creates herself

#19. Wilfred Mott Donna's grandad the most unappreciated character in the show he was the one there telling Donna to go out there and look for the Doctor, to never take her eyes off the stars  

#18. Stormageddon The Dark Lord of all the Baby that has taken over the fandom, I can guarantee that almost every Whovian that knows a baby boy has called him Stormageddon at least once I know I have

#17. Strax the best Sontaran in the Whoneverse, he is the potato one that tries to be clever

#16. Weeping Angels I still can't take my eyes off of a statue for more than a second 

#15. Jenny Flint. Jenny's a bad ass okay?

#14. Jenny the Doctor's Daughter Jenny another character that Moffat gave us and refuses to give back the girl that showed the Doctor that the past doesn't mean anything beside the present 

#13. The Master the Doctor's best friend betraying him back on Gallifrey when he was driven mad by the drums inside of his head

#12. Madame Vastra The most badassed Silurian in the show, I swear her, Jenny, and Strax need a spin off stat

#11. Sarah Jane Smith. The Companion that showed us that just because the Doctor left you it doesn't mean you have to have an average life.

#10. Jack Harkness the man who flirts with everything, and will sleep with more, Jack won my heart when he caught Rose in his Grav Tunnel over the Blitz, and I really wish Moffat would get his head out of his arse and bring him back

#9. Idris. The TARDIS in a human body, a genius idea, she was such a great character even if she only lasted as Idris for the one episode she was very memorable, and I wish he could bring Sexy back 

#8. The TARDIS. The Doctor's constant companion, that blue box that doesn't always take him where he wants to go, but allways takes him where he needs to go. this is the shape that if we see one we automatically think Doctor

#7.  River Song or Melody Pond either name it spells awesome, she's mysterious and for some reason even though we've seen almost her entire life we still don't know half of what has happened to her, in essence we still don't know who River Song is. She is beautiful and she loves the Doctor. So really is there anything left I can say aside from I love River Song?

#6. Rory Williams. What's not to love about Rory? he's the perfect guy, you know one of the ones that are really hard to find. He waited two thousand years for Amy outside of a box, and faced Cybermen to find Amy, he even took an energy bolt for his loves best friend. He is a strong character, that shows you that he doesn't have to come from another world to be amazing, it makes you take another look at that boy next door doesn't it?

#5. Rose Tyler. The Bad Wolf, The girl who will walk through universes, but that's not what makes Rose so great, she shows a strength that you don't expect to see, she has such a love for the Doctor that she is willing to rip apart the universe to see him again, she will look into the heart of the TARDIS to save his life, even if it means losing her own. 

#4. Amy Pond. Yes The girl who waited, she showed me that it was okay to follow your dreams to the point of obsession, and that you shouldn't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. She also shows you that you should do everything to protect those you love, she is the strongest woman on T.V for sure

#3. The Ninth Doctor, Nine was the one who introduced, me and got me thinking, that I could really enjoy this show, and slowly drew me in with his character and uniqueness. 

#2. The Eleventh Doctor. He became my best friend, and I'll admit as his series' went on he almost got to Ten height, though not quite His childish ways, and hidden darkness endeared him to me instantly, and it told me that the Doctor wasn't just a name, passed down from face to face, because Eleven holds so much of his past incarnations in the way he acts and moves 

#1.  The Tenth Doctor. He is my Doctor he made me fall in love with the time lord, and he made me fall in love with the show, he was the Doctor I waited for. So he is my favorite Character of all time

1941. Right now, not very far from here, the German war machine is rolling up the map of Europe. Country after country, falling like dominoes. Nothing can stop it—nothing. Until one tiny, damp little island says "No". "No. Not here". A mouse in front of a lion. You're amazing, the lot of you. I don't know what you do to Hitler, but you frighten the hell out of me.~The Doctor. Wisdom of the Bookworms,
