10:36 pm - I love it when fandom spontaneously combusts
Combustion of both the good and bad varieties at the moment, it must be said.

In any case, last night (UK time) was the Press Launch of Doctor Who S3, and as a result, there has been an utter bombardment of links, spoilers, news and what-not. I'd just say keep an eye on lifeonmartha, tennant_love, doctorwho, FreemaAgyeman.com, Kopic's Doctor Who News, or the OG.

Yes, I have a lot of news sources. ;)

However, as well as the press overload that's been going on, last night also saw a new trailer show up. And, well, let's just say I saw this trailer before I read any of the spoilers. And thus almost fell out of my seat.


That has to be the shippiest. Trailer. Ever.

I mean, dear Lord, it starts with Martha listing the qualities she'd like in a man... with the Doctor responding with how well he fits each. Egads! If that was part of the show itself, it'd be the flirtiest flirt that ever did flirt.

I think a running description of my thoughts when I watched the trailer for the first time could be described thus:

Oooh, new trailer, shiny.

Emphasising she's single, good way to develop some character.

Is this meant to sound as obviously paired up as that?

New clips, huzzah!

Ooh, pretty.

Martha doing CPR = neat.

HOLY CRAP KISS! FHAafh.gds.HKsd;!

.....

[trailer ends]


I couldn't believe what mine eyes were seeing. (In the good way, of course) It was just so unexpected.

But when you consider the way they started it, well...

There is no sub in that text.
Obviously the text is a Dom

And in conclusion, the Doctor/Martha kiss = HAWT


But, it's all got me well hyped. As I've commented elsewhere, the FX look top notch, it sounds like fun, and I'm finding the media scrum highly amusing.

Also, series 4 confirmed, huzzah!

I am in need of some new icons, though

A spoilersplosion, energy drink, and up-tempo music. I think all days should start like this one did.

Indeed. (Yeah, I know there'll be an excuse for it. Still hot, though)

Yeah, but how they going to explain this kiss? We all know this show too well to know it's not a genuine "let's get it ooonnn" kiss.

Spoilers say it's a "genetic transfer".

Which I personally think sounds more like a euphemism for something dodgy than most actual euphemisms, but still...

I'm ridiculously excited. Not even so much in a shippy way, but in that I'm curious about their relationship dynamic, which looks gloriously fun so far.

My sole thoughts, shippy wise, are that Kiss = Hot. And that they are both attractive (and I am shallow enough to like that).

But I'm also terribly curious, even if it's only the shiny new toy appeal.

But then, Tennant started as shiny new toy and became my fave Doctor, so it bodes well...

Before the new clips (from the Newsround and GMTV coverage) came out, those were my thoughts too, but now I'm just excited in general. He's impressed by her brains! Awesome.

Err, I meant the BBC Breakfast clips. *headdesk* All the same, though.

I did like those clips. (And who wouldn't? You gotta love someone with a brain on them)

I am terribly shallow, so I am all for pretty people kissing.

And I'll ship Ten with anyone (which means, if all spoilers hold, there'll be at least 4 Ten-related ships for me to go with this series...)

4? That's...pretty impressive, even by his standards.

So Martha, Jack...Casting Spoiler Person? Who else?

Martha, Jack, Casting Spoiler Person (if the Spoiler Role is correct) and Joan from the Human Nature episodes.

If you are familiar with the book that's being adapted, you'll know why Joan is included.

Ahhh. The first time I heard someone mention the girl who plays Joan (Jessica Stevenson, I think?), I thought they said 'Jessica Simpson' and nearly died. Thank God I just misheard.

Okay, that would be just plain wrong.

(I know nothing about Jessica Stevenson, who is confirmed for the role, except a lot of people squeed over her casting, which bodes well)

If you watched Spaced, you'd be squeeing too.

In fact, if you haven't watched Spaced, what a treat in store :-)

Why I don't believe in OTPs: because diversity is a lot more fun.
