Speaking of which -- having rewatched Human Nature/Family of Blood yesterday, still see no reason the Doctor couldn't have fobwatched Ten II back into John Smith, dumped him in 1917 and taken off with both the watch and Rose in tow. Much less risky than expecting Rose to keep him in check, with or without a TARDIS. Of course, in my version, Ten also wouldn't regenerate until after Rose had died...but now we're wading back into all my complicated feelings about how it's slightly better that Ten II is partly human and ages and all those other things of shippy convenience, so NEVER MIND.
I think my feelings about "Eleven" (the quotes are my skepticism that he's actually my Doctor, because PRETTY SURE HE IS NOT), based on his outfit, can be summed up in this comment I left to fiery_twilight :
"I'd hit that.
Not in the bedding sense of Ten, but in the sense of 'I have a sudden and inexplicable urge to beat him up.' "
Unrelatedly: I stupidly started watching my Sarah Jane Adventures DVD from the library, thinking I could renew Doctor Who because the county has 4 copies and there were no requests for the first couple of days after I got it, but I waited too long to try and now of course it's due the day after tomorrow and I've only watched one disc. ARGH!
On bright side, this means I watched the Sarah Jane timeline feature, complete with my first-ever clips from the original series, after which I continue to feel validated by my long-standing belief that Three is second only to Ten in awesomeness, and Four is kind of a freak, and Sarah Jane has always been unequivocally awesome at all times.
Meanwhile, I'd like to restate my pure and unadulterated love for this show, my continuing desperation for the release of an official soundtrack, and my joy over the fact that I love this show so much, I didn't want to fast-forward through a single second of "Invasion of the Bane," and that's not even in my top 50% of episodes.
