Wednesday was a busy day for Doctor Who news. I awoke to this amusing article on Facebook & LIve Journal – “NASA discovers Doctor Who’s crack in the middle of the Milky Way” and several new trailers for this Saturday’s episode, “The Pandorica Opens”. For those of you who don’t want spoilers, the YouTube videos will be hosted in a separate blog post here.
I know the 10/Rose relationship in the end is about the angst of him losing her (especially to his human clone) but just for once, I wanted to do one that was happy. I was so struck by the look of peace and contentment on his face in the last inset image I included in the wallpaper, I felt a need to celebrate that brief happiness to its fullest.
For Kristen…a great friend =)
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.
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.
