Alternative title: Why Moffat Who is Poetry

Welcome to the meta café! Although this time it's more The Poetry Café (not that there's ever much difference). What I mean is, this post is like a follow-up to The Hollow Men and will be formatted in a similar way: I.e. first up is the poem/imagery, which will then be followed by lengthy, complex and in-depth notes. No really, this is enormous. (I will also write a more regular meta post later, with all the stuff that does not fit into this very specific reading.) Also, although this meta mostly centers on The Doctor Falls, it meanders through a lot of S10, and even further back. And as always, Promethia owns at least half of this.

But first, here is the second half of the fifth and final part of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, as filtered through Moffat Who:

PART V. WHAT THE THUNDER SAID )

As people on Tumblr have been saying, the 60th anniversary looks interesting...



It's Christopher Eccleston (9) and Jodie Whittaker (13) in Antigone. And interestingly, her lines could be summed up as 'I do what I do because it's right!' Oh aye, she'll be a grand Doctor. In short - if you're wondering why she was cast, watch this. Big, angry righteous monologue, as if born to it. She'll be fantastic.

(Also, SO NORTHERN OMG. The Doctor is a Northern lass, I'm chuffed to bits. <3)

And this is apparently the current picture from the Doctor Who calendar:

(Seriously, just WRITING 'she'... Eeee. *flails*)

ETA: I love the aesthetic of these mini videos. The nature intertwined with the magical/otherwordly. It sits right, and also has a very different textural feel to Moffat. (Which is good. Nothing will ever be Moffat Who, so I want a complete change.)

Also Thirteen's personal aesthetic is very much to my liking. <3

Still a classic.

In short: Thirteen will be revealed after the Wimbledon Men's Final on Sunday 16th of July.

[personal profile] purplefringe made a Bill vid, all about how Bill's face is just awesome.

I was lucky enough to get a preview and basically flailed a lot and told her that yes, Bill's face was definitely that awesome, and when Bill smiles the whole world lights up.

And now she has posted it and I can share it with you all:

LJ: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

summary: Dreams really do come true

Obviously SPOILERS FOR EVERYTHING.

I feel this only addresses about three things, but it's already Thursday and my head just won't wrap itself around things the way they should. So further thoughts might follow. Please talk to me about stuff you think I should look at!

Weekly Meta Cafe is hereby open. :)

Silly

Right so, SPOILERS for tonight's episode (The Lie of the Land). Quite probably only amusing for the Brits out there (knowledge of British politics - Corbyn specifically - required).

I AM SO SORRY FOR INFLICTING THIS ON YOU. Proper meta coming, honest. *g*

... head over to [personal profile] promethia_tenk's and read about alllll the symbolism and how it hangs together and how Bill fits into all of it.

Spoilers up to (and including) The Pyramid at the End of the World, as well as the next time trailer:

There will probably be words.

Later.

But oh, that was... ALL THE THINGS!

So, last week Promethia wrote about Knock Knock, which was great.

This week... Well, I've been trying to slowly re-boot my brain. This weekend is the first one where we've not been busy since - I'm not even sure. Anyway, it's not rebooted enough to actually write anything. I've been talking about it with Promethia, but since her brain is working, and mine is not, these are her thoughts. Roughly edited into different subjects areas.

Although TONIGHT I shall be sat in front of the TV, watching in real time and hopefully being able to flail shortly afterwards. :)

Anyway, what is under the cut is ALLLLL [personal profile] promethia_tenk. (Times like these it is VERY HANDY to hare your brain with someone else...)

Here be spoilers )
elisi: (Bill curious)
This has been a very very busy weekend and after watching 'Knock Knock' this was pretty much my only thought:

YES THIS COUNTS AS A SPOILER )

Thankfully the other half of my brain, the always brilliant [personal profile] promethia_tenk, HAS WRITTEN A POST, which talks about All The Things. :D :D :D

Go & read. I doubt I'll be 'writing' anything more than what's under the cut.

(My parents have been visiting for the past two weeks. They left this morning. Next weekend it's my sister-in-law's wedding. So yeah, RL eating me alive.)
