I’ve got a silly little Doctor Who mani to show y’all. I’m still hyped up after The Day of the Doctor 50th, still covered in sharpie tally marks too.
And yeah, I used a sharpie. Thank gods I used blue eyeliner on my face…
This are not the-vast-expanse-of-the-time-and-space-continuum galaxy nails or something profound (and glittery) like that. But every Whovian will know what each nail means <3
Oh, the ring finger stamp got overshadowed by the beautiful OPI base, but it’s Guido, in Rory’s T-shirt from his stag do… : D
And since 9th is my Doctor, my favourite nail is the middle finger.
I love skittle nail art, but I find I need a palate cleanser after them, in the form of something, well, not monochromatic (*gasp*), but at least simpler.
After my uber-hyped-up post after the 50th anniversary special (https://thiskittenhasklaws.wordpress.com/2013/11/24/the-day-of-the-doctor-50th-anniversary-of-doctor-who-and-that-time-when-i-cried-in-tesco/) I’m STILL on Cloud Doctor Who.
I still claim the episode was fantastic. Now, I acknowledge that Moffat’s ‘undestroying’ of Gallifrey undoes Russel’s foundation of the time war and burning of the Timelords – and the character of the Doctor that he built on said foundation. I see that. But I don’t think it was mean, or cruel or stupid in any way – I wouldn’t agree with some of the reviews stating that.
It WAS a brilliantly thought-out plot, with so many time shifting planes and twists, and I admire Moffat for it. And as much as I love Russel – and I love him and his brain dearly (after all, he resuscitated Doctor Who for us!) I say it is more important to write an awesome 50th special into the cannon than to think about the ex-show runner’s feelings. That’s just my five cents.
And I really disagree that the 50th destroyed what came before it – we have to remember we’re Whovians! This is Whouniverse – this wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff is happening all the time. In this case, it had to do with the Doctor’s personal timeline – it was SPECIAL.
As to the nonexistent 10th and Rose reunion – I’m actually glad it wasn’t there. Don’t get me wrong, I am NOT one of those heretics who are ANNOYED with Rose and Billie and who knows what more. I love Tennant (hence, Moffat, again, TOO SOON. Just. No.) and his relationships were brilliant. But I think the reunion would’ve been ruined if it were crammed into those 75 minutes – there were so many plots already, (I’m sure you’ve all noticed how well the Zygon storyline was resolved…). So, I’m pretty ok with the fact they didn’t force their meeting into the special, because I don’t think even Tennant’s pure awesomeness would’ve been able to save that one from being, well, horrible and rushed and disappointing.
So yes, all in all, there’s still a Who storm brewing in my head, and I’m loving it. Wearing this mani is a cherry on the Doctor top.
So, who’s YOUR Doctor? When did you start watching Doctor Who?
And, if you haven’t, WHY NOT?! (jk.) (not really.)
