Journey's End

I think that underwhelmed may be understating it. I think my whelm is limbo dancing. My whelm is in a deep mine, polishing its nails and saying "was that it?"


ETA: Confidential: stop using music I like to score things I am pissy about. Turin Brakes are *mine*, for my own personal headpictures, bastards. AND SIGUR ROS. You ****holes.

Spoilers hidden behind grey stuff in comments, if you have the willpower of a small cocktail sausage

God help Donna if she gets a cold.

Mrs Noble: Oh for god's sake why don't you just go to the doc---
Wilf: NOoooooooooooooooooooo!

Heh. And her head goes Ker-blam.

The more you think about it, the less sense it will make. This is RTD's gift when it comes to Doctor Who. I would like him to go write other stuff now, so I can like him again.

temaris made a good point in that simply because Donna hasn't got her memories doesn't change the fact that she was biologically altered. She's still the Doctor-Donna, but without any of the memories that would give it context. Can you imagine what she's going to do now? My vote? That she dreams of things, things that gradually shape her back towards who she was with the Doctor, and sleepwalking she builds a copy of the machine in the TARDIS that took the Doctor and made him into simple human John Smith and then took him back to Gallifreyan. Let's have Donna literally become a Time Lord, eh?

Actually, I think RTD has no idea what a Time Lord is (since one doesn't have to be from Gallifrey to be one, for instance) and one of their rites of passage according to last season's finale was to look into the Time Vortex. Kind of like, um, let's see... Rose? (Who then went on to build a dimensional cannon, a time machine for Donna, and for whom a dead or dying TARDIS held momentary flickers of life). Rose and Donna as Time Lords. That would've been the way forward for me.

Or maybe not. I... sort of lost the plot a bit. LOL. Last year I thought about what I would have done with the finale, but this year I'm not sure I'd know. I seem to be stuck in a Time Lord resurrection loop, LOL.

I would have loved that in lots of ways. It's not as though they have to come back to the show itself just because they're transformed; they can still live in the imaginary universe held by the viewers. Instead we've got RTD's ridiculous fetishisation of the "one ordinary girl saves the universe" without any growth or change for that person afterwards.

But yes, Donna is changed, she's got a souped up brain and and she's not the sort who would let missing memories lie. Well, she might for a while, just like she didn't travel with the doctor for a while, then she would find out.

fourteenlines had a good post about how what happened to River changed the Doctor and Donna and vice versa.

Nope. Still pissed off at all that sound and fury signifying nothing
