My Doctor isn’t paying attention to his AOL IM tonight, so I’m loitering on LJ ‘sites, snagging wonderful animated .gifs. Found a cache of 8th Doctor’s…Paul McGann…yum!
Thank you LJ friend, zed_pm, for these =D
Saturday’s preview for the upcoming episode “Amy’s Choice” with the images of a frozen TARDIS interior and a hypothermic Matt Smith haunted me. These are the result. Click on the images to pull up the full size wallpapers, then right click on that image to save them. Let me know if you enjoyed them & please give credit wheverer possible.
Feel free to snag these. My wallpaper right now is the 800 x 600 version and I find myself sometimes staring at it quite happily when I need a moment to relax, or when I’m listening to one of the Big Finish Production 5th Doctor cds.
If you are familiar with the Children in Need special, “Time Crash”, you will know where the line “and then I was you” came from.
I made a larger version tonight (1600 x 900) for a friend of mine who RPs the Fifth Doctor on LiveJournal. I rarely run across male Doctor Who writers, let alone a guy who RPs my favorite Doctor and does it so well, so I wanted to do something for him to thank him for his friendship. Enjoy, my friend.
We were all sitting around one night last week trying to help my friend Kristen take her mind off her busted rotator cuff and broken finger, and of course the distraction of choice was a David Tennant Doctor Who marathon. As the evening progressed, the show’s awesome music invariable led to the discussion of ring tones. Myion wanted not just the song, “The Sound of Drums”, he wanted the Master yelling, “Here come THE DRUMS!!!” right before the music erupts onto the screen. Custom tone, tall order. Can’t just log onto T-Mobile to get that one, right?
My personal favs leaned towards a particularly ravishing use of, “The Doctor’s Theme” on the Murray Gold soundtrack for Seasons 1 and 2, and an almost hypnotic score piece found not on any of the soundtracks, but on the opening DVD menu for Seasons 3 & 4! Heh, we don’t do anything easy around here.
Determined after a few days of listening obsessively to both pieces, I recorded them, got them edited them down to a manageable ring tone size and, with some cleverness, got them into my cell phone. Wasn’t easy without internet access, but nothing worth doing ever is. Enjoy them, they were made possible through a mad love for the series.
