Reaction Post - "Last Christmas"

Mood: annoyed

Santa Claus?  Seriously?

I mean, really? Santa Claus???

The script was so inane, pedantic and absurd that is does not deserve comment.  Capaldi gives the exact same, canned, performance he gave in every episode of season 8.

What absurdities will Moffat subject us to in the new season?

Will someone please fire Moffatt and get Doctor Who back on track before he completely destroys it????????!!!!!!!

Reaction Post "Listen"

Where I'm at: United States, Tennessee, Old Hickory
Mood: disappointed
What I'm listening to: Hannity


I've listened to all the alleged 'critics' who are claiming this was such a great episode and I can't agree.

One of the hallmarks of the best science fiction, is that it is, at its best, both plausible and believeable.  One is able to "suspend disbelief" and immerse oneself in the world of the author's creation for the duration.


Doctor Who has always had a specific set of canon rules regarding violations of time travel, paradoxes, etc.  Moffat from the very beginning has violated most of those rules.

The worst example from "Listen" is the trip back to see a "young Doctor" on Gallifery.  In the 50th anniversary special (after breaking the Time Lock to reach Gallifrey) Gallifery was locked away in a pocket universe to protect it.  They could not have reached it without breaking that lock.

Why does Moffat even bother setting these plot lines up if he's going to immediately violate them?  It makes no sense.

Twelve's increasing instability is annoying at best.  His character is dark, chaotic, incoherent and vague.

The only real bright spot has been the further development of Clara.  I would hope that will continue.

Over all, a real disappointment that has me wishing more and more for the return of Ten and Rose.

Reaction Post: "Into the Dalek"

What is it with Moffat and recycling old plots?

First we have the 'damaged' dalek.  Can anyone remember Season 1's episode "Dalek"?

Then we have a remake of the movie "Fantastic Voyage" to save the dalek, who then goes bad anyway.

Good Grief!

Moffat doesn't have a single original idea in him.

Not liking the new darker tone of the Doctor.  If you look at all the past incarnations, he is nothing like that.  This is getting closer to the Valyard.  Don't like it at all.

Writer's Block: Fool me once...

Mood: melancholy

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?

When I was 20, I found out that the man I was in love with and fully expected to marry one day had been lying to me for almost a year.  I received a letter from him, the gist of which was "oh, by the way, I'm getting married in December".  I found out that my parents had known for at least six months and had chosen not to tell me.

The bastard didn't even have the guts to tell me to my face.

To this day, the most difficult issue I have with anyone is trust.  There was a time I would have trusted that man with my life.  Now, I have great difficulty trusting even my closest family members.

I don't know if I will ever be able to forgive him for taking that away from me.

What I'm listening to: Santa Train

Well, it's that time of year again.  This weekend the hubby and I will be making our annual trek east to chase the Santa Train.

For those of you who don't know, my DH is a rabid railfan (read: railroading enthusiast) and he's dragged me into his hobby.  Since we married, we have tried to make it a tradition, to start off our holidays by chasing the CSX Santa Claus Special from Shelbiana, KY to Kingsport, TN every year that we could.  We have a ball taking photos and video, watching the kids faces light up when they see Santa and just generally enjoying the gorgeous scenery of Appalachia Coal County.

I'm including a couple of videos here.  The first gives a bit of an explantion about the Santa Train and what it is.  The second is a wonderful video made by another railfan which uses pictures she took of the 2008 Santa Train set to Patty Loveless great song "Santa Train".  Patty Loveless is from the area and wrote the song about it.

If you check out the Clinchfield County Santa Train Photo Gallery you'll find even more great shots.  Look very carefully at the 2003 shots and you might even find me and the DH lurking on the porch at Dante!
And now, to get you in the mood:
