03:07 pm - "A little bit foxy."
Yay, I got it! (Note to self: don't bother waking up early. The downloads are all busy and slow. Wake up later, when they are less crowded)

This was written as I watched it for the second time.


To start with, the heading = my favourite bit. The entire CassanDoctor monologue was awesome. Samba! Foxy! Slim! The eyebrows! Hardly used! Rose thinks about him! ROFL!

But to get back to my chronolgical write up...

- Yeah, pull those levers, Ten! I heart the moody dramatic opening shots. And his smile. And the way he whacks the console to make it work.
- Rose, you are so mean to poor Mickey.
- New Earth is so pretty. I want to live there.
- Wheee! Spiderbots!
- The Doctor and Rose are so cute. They remind me why I do, genuinely, like the ship. It's just some of the bloody fans...
- New New York is so a Futurama reference. Futurama is canon, dammit!
- WTF? Is that Midsomer Murders music? Sounds like it.
- Ten doesn't like hospitals. Which makes sense, considering what happened to him in the movie in one.
- I heart the cat people. And the shop running joke.
- Ten is rather less clingy on Rose. I approve.
- I love the way Ten seems to have the time of his life in the shower (Eee, wet!Ten), whilst Rose freaks.
- The Duke's legal lady owns my soul.
- "I like impossible." I want an icon with that on it, it's such a great Doctor line.
- I heart Chip. I heart Rose calling him Gollum as well. And the creepy attraction he has for Cassandra.
- Rose, Cassandra so played you there.
- I love the description of the Doctor as "the lonely God."
- CassadRose rocks my socks. Points to Billie.
- "Any friendship expressed by the Duke of Manhattan does not constitute a formal legal contract." Legal lady, I love you.
- CassandRose does love her cleavage...
- And her snogging. That cracked me up big time. She's so into it, and he's all "huh?" The look on his face afterwards is just all glazed and disbeliving, and the high-pitched squeaky "Yep... still got it" just makes me fall over laughing. As does his suave hair swip.
- The Doctor is so onto CassandRose at the terminals. And he doesn't say anything. Sneaky bastard. (Also, this'll be the point where my fic spins off AU. So glad it wasn't entirely Russelled out of existance)
- Angry, broody Ten is hot liek whoa. Srsly.
- Shouty Ten is also scary as all hell. But still hot.
- This fact disturs me slightly.
- Oh Doctor, talk about some over-confidence? I love Ten's arrogance, it just strikes me as so Doctorish, but I know for a fact I read somewhere that it'll come back and bite Rose and the Doctor on the arse. And I am so looking forward to it, dammit.
- "Very, very calm." Oh boy, you are so in for it catlady. Very, very calm Doctor is what happened to Harriet Jones...
- CassandRose tie!porn! Calling him "lady-killer"! Really intimite whispering! Cassandra is so hot for him.
- The Flesh were rather creepy. But so much sadder when you realise that all they want is physical contact.
- Disease effects on that catnun were a bit dodgy.
- "I want that body safe." Hehe.
- Actually, the whole disease via touch thing is a bit dody, really. Oh well.
- Tiny thing, but I love Ten's little twirly jump when he slams the door.
- The CassanDoctor thing is the best. Thing. Ever. Fact. If someone could get me a transcript of that monolgue, I'd adore them forever.
- "I ORDER YOU TO LEAVE HER!" Guess who likes to be in charge...
- Cassandra gets depth and insight, and the Doctor takes her hand. Wonderful.
- Legal lady has a chair. Could she be any cooler?
- Ten takes charge, and kicks arse. I love you, Ten.
- Ten is having so much fun going down that lift shaft. He's such an adrenaline junky.
- More dodgy puns. Yep, still the same Doctor.
- Another wet!Ten moment. With baptismal imagery liek whoa, and bouncy gleeful Doctor, and it's almost ripped off the end of The Doctor Dances. Only with a zillion times more religious implications (and RTD is an atheist? WTF?). Let's just ignore the even dodgier science, shall we?
- "I'm the Doctor and I cured them." Not the best line ever, that. The hug with that chick was great, though.
- "Life will out!" however, is fabulous. As is Ten's glee. He does joy so well, Tennant.
- Wet pale shirt Doctor. Yummy.
- "You have taught me to look at it anew." Yep, that's a bit dodgy as well.
- On the other hand, Boe rocks (in the modern sense). Textbook enigmatic indeed. (Setting up series three, from what I hear. Getting long term, now...)
- CassanChip is even cooler than ordinary Chip.
- WTF? About turn much, Cassandra?
- Ten looks like a film noir detective in that coat in the shadows.
- They made me almost cry over Cassandra? How the hell did they do that?
- According to the credits, Legal Lady is Frau Clovis. I'll remember that.

Also, the trailer pwned liek whoa. Ninja monks of Awesomeness!


Non spoiler version = It was great fun, even if it did get a bit silly in parts, and is hardly a classic. But entirely worth it for the intense hilarity. Not as good as TCI, but I still loved it a lot, and it was intensely quotable. Basically, a whole lot of brilliant little things held together in a rather weak plot. And the trailers for next week win like whoa.

Also, Ten owns my soul.

*wants fic now. And not just cliche "Oh noes, I remember!" junk about Rose

(PS. Confidential viewable anywhere? Even if it's just an online vid place? Anything non-torrent is fine for me)

Oh HELL yes. "Very Very calm" doctor makes me get all squirmy.

I am actually writing fic right now (well, I have two lines written...). Dark, nasty, porny, AU fic in which the Doctor does CassandRose knowing it's Cassandra, and pretending it's just Rose. Sort of. *facepalm*

To all those people who said Tennant wouldn't be as good at anger as Ecclestone? IN YOUR FACE!

And he manages to be damn hot, too. Less spittle.

Hee. I'm (well, mapping out) a now AU porny dark thing as well, with boundary crossing and lots of ...


Ooo, but I totally wanna read your doctor does CassandRose fic... (of which, I suspect there will be more than a few)... this episode has a big fat "fic me" sign on its back.

Hurrah for dark porny AUs!

And I got the idea when I originally heard that Cassandra was possessing Rose. Then I read a detailed summary of the first half, and thought it wouldn't work, because it sort of depended on the Doctor knowing it wasn't Rose. But the episode shows he picks up on it earlier than I thought...

And it is going to need betaing liek whoa. I haven't written fanfic for ages, and never for Doctor Who. *cringes at what she's gotten herself in for*

I'm working on it, I'm working on it! Four lines now. I'm just trying to work out exactly where to spin the AU off from. It's got to be after that terminal scene, so he knows Rose isn't entirely herself, a bit longer so he can guess that it's possession rather than something else, but not too far into the plot, so there can still be porn. *sngsts on it*

Excuse me while I join you in squee and comment on all your points.

(Note to self: don't bother waking up early. The downloads are all busy and slow. Wake up later, when they are less crowded)

Or do what I did; get up early, start three torrents up and go back to bed. Then hopefully by *actual* wake up time, it will be d/loaded and ready to go, whee!

- Rose, you are so mean to poor Mickey.

I know! He says "love you" and she says "bye". Ouch. One of these days I will write a fic about those two and dysfunctionality and co-dependance. This why I get annoyed at Mickey bashers--yeah, he's kind of pathetic to still be waiting for her (I like what Noel said about him there, hee) but he's totally faithful. That makes him pretty wonderful, in my book.

- The Doctor and Rose are so cute. They remind me why I do, genuinely, like the ship. It's just some of the bloody fans...

Snerk...

- Ten doesn't like hospitals. Which makes sense, considering what happened to him in the movie in one.

OMG, that so didn't occur to me! Of course!

- I love the description of the Doctor as "the lonely God."

Me not so much, actually. I <3 "the wanderer" and "the man without a home", but I don't think of him as a god. A bit too Marty Stu-ish, maybe, I don't know.

I got it from a torrent at UKNova, so no help there. I didn't have time to watch it before coming to work though, woe!

I have a dislike of torrents. They don't work for me most of the time, so I just gave up using them.

I think the God thing is going to be a bit of an issue this year, actually. There's defintely a RTD quote floating around somewhere about how Rose and the Doctor are going to get over-confident, and that there will be consequences. (I have a suspicion on this) And the whole deal with the Satan Pit two-parter...

"- Wet pale shirt Doctor. Yummy" He just needed breeches, and it would have been Mr Darcy all over again. Glorious.

OMG cross-fandom squee; I had a Casanova moment after the snog. It was sooo like after when he was with the Tosello sisters. !!! I had to tell someone.

(Because I only just watched it. Bcause I was on a plane. Actually flying over houses where people were watching it. GAAAH.)
