On this episode, my discussion is probably equal parts raves and equal parts rants (I'm not so good at math, but that sounds about right) and overall just A WHOLE LOTTA FEELS. Seriously, this is probably the most shiptastic episode I've ever done (Martha/Doctor is still sort of my OTP), so that shippy aspect could possibly put people off, but, hey, it's how I feel about the episode and Martha's tenure on the show, so I had to just go with it to be authentic. *shrug*

Anyway, please won't you join me as I squee about the long-lost 'Doctor Who Confidential' series and also about All Things Martha (because, really, Competency is Sexy!), get nostalgic about the old days of 'Doctor Who' on PBS in North America from my youth, pump my fist in the air for #TeamJulia (it'll make sense once you listen), rant kind of a lot about RTD-style 'Doctor Who' (I know, what a surprise!), and, finally, embarrass myself with a bonus fanmix-song I made ages ago and pulled from the dusty vault of yesteryear in honor of this episode.

So, yeah, enjoy the ride!

(Oops, I've been so busy, I hadn't had a chance to post this yet.)



On this super-duper-late fourth episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about the recent reveal of who will be the next Doctor (on which there's lots of geeking and cheering from me, of course!) and how one of my favorite classic Doctors is coming to a convention near me next year (and I'll hopefully get to meet him for the first time!). Of course, as promised, there's also the main 'In Defense Of' segments, where I come to the defense of several characters and other bits of fandom I think are often ridiculed unfairly. Admittedly, I sadly didn't have the nicest things to say about Rose Tyler a few times in the episode and while I know she's a bit of a sacred cow in fandom, I feel that many of the characters I talked about were often sacrificed at her altar and put up against her in comparison by the show. So, I argue how those comparisons failed for me. I'm honestly hoping I don't lose any listeners over that, because I know YMMV and everyone gets something different out of different characters, but at the same time, I had to be honest with my opinions. Anyway, this is the longest episode I've done so far, which probably made the timing of it even worse as its running so late due to Life Stuff (I sincerely hope to be back on schedule going forward though). So, anyway, enjoy the ride -- its a bumpy one this month!

30 Days of Who Meme: Day 5 -- Your Favorite Companion

I always hate this question, as there are so many awesome companions to choose from. I do have a definite 'type' though, in general -- I usually prefer the brainy ones. Zoe, Liz, Nyssa...I could go on. But at the present moment [and for what's been a good two years or so now], I have to say that my favorite is Martha Jones.

I love that she's smart, capable, feisty, independent, and hella gorgeous. I love that though she can be strong and confident, she can also be a bit dorky and self-conscious. I love that she was able to function very well on her own when away from the Doctor [something we sadly don't see enough of anymore in the show, IMO] and also that she was able to finally walk away from him when she needed to after the whole YTNW tragedy.

Sadly, I think the writers of the series did a disservice to her character by shoving an awkward 'unrequited love' [which I don't think it actually was, but anyway] plotline into an otherwise awesome Team TARDIS and generally not developing her character as much as other New!Who companions, but I still love her nonetheless. Thankfully, there is not only fanfic, but also some great other mediums [such as the IDW comics] to still enjoy her in.

30 Days of Me Meme: Day 5 -- Your favorite quote

Ooh, another challenge. I think I'll just go with the one that is currently on my user profile:

"It's no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn't even speak to each other if they met at a party."

-- Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Yeah. I think, as a music geek, that really fits my life in many ways.
