DOCTOR WHO: The Time of the Doctor

The other week, I was given an opportunity to write a guest article about the Eleventh Doctor. I wrote for my friend George's blog "Behold the Geek" and you can read my article here. I might write a new article for NO REAL PLOT! but for now, I'm writing about "The Time of the Doctor," Doctor Who's 2013 Christmas special and Eleventh Doctor's final episode.

The video starts off with a narrated back story about a planet and a town called Christmas where a strange signal rang out and attracted creatures and beings from all over the galaxy. Soon, the Doctor receives a phone call that reunites him with Clara and they learn from a cyberman's detached head that the strange signal is coming from Gallifrey. The Doctor goes to investigate and encounters almost all his old enemies as well as familiar dangers that prophesied his end on Trenzalore.

DISNEY: Frozen (2013)

From the first moment the heavenly chorus sang and I watched as crisp ice crystals dance on the screen to form the title logo of Disney's Frozen, I felt the film was going to be magical. When I watched it a second time, it was even better. It wasn't so much that I have a bias for powerful vocals and dazzling animations (I do, actually) but I just felt that Frozen was going to be very, very good. I didn't know it was going to be so much more.

DOCTOR WHO: The Eleventh Doctor's Sonic

I pinched this entry from the previous one about the Tenth Doctor's sonic screwdriver. Reason? The post was getting too long and I felt there could be more to say about Tenth's Doctor's gadget replicas. This is Eleventh Doctor's sonic screwdriver, which I bought from Amazon. It's slightly bigger than Tenth's and has more features, basically the claw head that opens as it did in the series.

DOCTOR WHO: 50th Anniversary

Finally, I got to writing about this convention...or should I say, THE convention last celebrating the 50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the popular BBC series Doctor Who. I had an absolutely lovely time, not just at the convention but touring around London and parts of Europe. But I'm here to blog about the convention; the tour is yet in another post (mostly because I haven't scanned in drawings yet.)

DOCTOR WHO: The Tenth Doctor's Sonic

Hold a moment, we'll liven up this blog with a feature on sonic screwdrivers. That's right. Because sonics are cool. Well, I have three of the gadgets: two of the 10th Doctor's and one of 11th's. But today, I'm writing about 10th's sonic since it has has two versions. One is the plain blue LED one and the other has the purple UV bulb with other end that doubles as a pen. I'll be starting with the UV sonic, since that's what I bought first from Amazon.
