Doctor Who Liveblog, S06E04 – The Doctor’s Wife, by Neil Gaiman

I am liveblogging each episode of Doctor Who as I watch it. This is more or less a raw stream of consciousness list of things I am considering and wondering about as I watch. (Sometimes I add links later for reference, but otherwise it’s all exactly what I typed at the time.) In the interest of not spoiling anything for anyone I am putting all of it behind the jump.

This episode is the fourth episode of Season Six (or Thirty-Two depending who you ask), called The Doctor’s Wife. BBC Page

Odd and cave-y.
“Nephew will drain your mind and your soul form your body and leave your body empty.”
There’ll be a Time Lord comin? REALLY? Huh.
Who knocks on the door of the TARDIS? Particularly in flight?
A box? Oh, sorry. A scrumptious little beauty.
There’s still one left? Oh hurrah!
“Or herself, a couple of times.” YES PLEASE!
Leaving the Universe?
Oh my.
Now we are all…uh oh.
Outside the universe?
Oh noes.
How did SHE become the TARDIS?
Wait, what?
Wow, that looks like quite the ship.
“Well it’s nothing like that.” Hee!
What what what?
“Sorry about the mad person.”
So yeah, she IS the TARDIS. That is just…huh.
“It’s like kissing only there’s a winner.” Nice!
Oh hai Ood!
Send a signal to the Time Lords? OH NO!
Who is that?
Why is that recording playing on his translator?
Why is he hearing that?
The House?
I feel like this is where Pennywise from IT is from.
“Somewhoere close by there are lots and lots of…Time Lords.” What? WHAT!?
How does the asteroid know he is a Time Lord?
I’m a bit creeped out by the “I fix them when they break” bit.
I do recall when Amy had to bring him back he said he stole the TARDIS.
Heh. Rory.
Uh oh. And uh oh some more.
Oh goody. He locked them in.
OMG! If he locked them in, are they now wandering round in that lady’s mind?
All that mail…they all need help…so sad.
So they aren’t really there? Oh no.
He was going to get some…forgiveness? Commiseration? And now it’s gone.
They stole each other? I would very much like to actually see the story.
Only Neil Gaiman could pull this off.
Can he make the lady open the door? It’s her, after all.
So Amy wants to hold his hand, but she won’t say she loves him?
Now the planet is talking to them? Yikes!
So they have to die now?
Eek! They just…died!?
“I’m a madman with a box WITHOUT A BOX!”
Sexy. LOL!
Wait how is this “my new home”?
Why not kill them now? Good question. And entertainment is a good suggestion, Rory.
It’s not impossible as long as we’re alive. I find that comforting and rather insightful.
HALLWAY! Hello hallway!
There’s a sign on the front, what does it say? Ha!
“Pull to open, and what do you do?” “I PUSH.”
Oh how I like this.
When they build the new box parts will she be able to change again or still remain a police box?
Who’s calling Amy? If nobody else is…Rory? Hours!?
DUH AMY! Hold his hand and never let go!
So all of the TARDISes (TARDi? TARDISees?) have the weird circles on the walls? Got it.
She stole him too, eh? Interesting.
Nice move Missy!
What now!?
Rory? Coming for him at night? What?
Tell me that House is just messing with her. That is so sad.
OK Amy tell him you love him and HOLD HIS BLOODY BUGGERY HAND!
Telepathic messaging? Nice!
And I like that this is Rory’s gig now. Cool. A bit irksome that the girl is pointless again, but still.
Sexy is her name? I was hoping for something a bit more interesting.TENTH DOCTOR CONTROL ROOM! Hello, sweetie.
Nephew is freaking me out a bit.
Get out of the way? How!?
“Did you wish REALLY hard?” OMG hahahahahaha!
Is the Doctor really going to take House to the Univers?
Is he really deleting them? What what what!?
Oh hey!
Still a bit sad to see the last TARDIS control room but I was thrilled about it.
“A big complicated word, but so sad.”
Alive? Wow.
Hello? Aww.
Oh noes. The Doctor is absolutely killing me right now.
Please look over there. I have something in my eye.
“The only water in the forest is the river.”
Oh! Not THE river, but River. As in River Song. I bet.
Lose the bunk beds? Hee!
I rather love those goggles.
She can hear you, Doctor. I know it.

What a mad beautiful charming weird episode. I enjoyed it very much. Pretty solid on its own, actually. Thanks Neil. Very nicely done.
