Pages Torn From Time

Alt. title: “Pieces of Eight.” XD

Sketches of the Eighth Doctor, whom I love so ridiculously much! Also featuring Charley (Charlotte Pollard), the companion he refused to give up even though the laws of time and Time Lords demanded it.

I adore these two. The world needs more Eight and Charley! More Eighth Doctor, period. He is one of the sweetest, most adorable, enthusiastic, charismatic and passionate Doctors ever, though the pendulum can too easily swing to a darker, colder nature full of snark and weary of battle. And need I mention he is also played by PAUL MCGANN! *___*

If you need more convincing of his adorableness, here is an audio snippit of him rummaging through his bottomless pockets in search of sunglasses for Charley: LISTEN NOW

I highly, highly recommend the Big Finish audio dramas. They are utterly amazing and addictive, and are keeping me sane through work and the wait for the 50th.  And there’s no better time than now to start listening! Big Finish has discounted Eight’s first season to only $3 an episode!!  I recommend starting at the beginning with “Storm Warning"  ^__^

EIGHT NEEDS MORE LOVE, PEOPLE!  Give him a chance and he’ll run off with your heart. And drink all your tea.

Loving the covers for the Charlotte Pollard boxset!

Make Me Choose: patrexes asked you: sam jones or charley pollard
Seeing as it is one week till May starts, I thought it would be a good time to do this. Because guess what happens in May? That’s right, the first boxset of the Charlotte Pollard spinoff comes out.
As she is my favourite companion, I am more than a little excited she’s getting her own series, so I did this, inspired by the cover.
Also, basically, just, oh my gosh, go pre-order it now.

I’m still pretty behind in Charley’s stories (nearly done with her Eight run, though), but dang this is nice. AND INDIA LOVES IT!

Alternate covers for the main range Eight audios. Aka what happens when Krissy explores older musicals and has access to photoshop.

The many variations of this, YOU ASKED FOR IT, KONI.

C’rizz is the prettiest chameleon companion.

I could do this all day.

I still haven’t made it to Absolution yet (and won’t for a while because I’m Not Ready), but I still say that the true tragedy of C’rizz is that arguably Doctor Who’s most visually interesting companion is audio-only.

Finally (and by finally I guess I mean a day later) looking at the info for the “The Worlds Of Doctor Who" audio. I mean not only is it 5 CDs, it comes with the pretty packaging and book with pics and extra stuff.

And I mean…

Colin Baker (The Doctor), Louise Jameson (Leela), Lalla Ward (Romana), Daphne Ashbrook (Ruth Matheson), Trevor Baxter (Professor George Litefoot), Christopher Benjamin (Henry Gordon Jago), Richard Franklin (Mike Yates), Karen Gledhill (Allison Williams), Hugh Ross (Sir Toby Kinsella), Pamela Salem (Rachel Jenson), Yee Jee Tso (Charlie Sato), Simon Williams (Group Captain Gilmore, Jamie Glover (Mr Rees)

Most of this cast/character list makes me want to cry.

I mean Jago & Litefoot, and then you have Eight’s movie companions as UNIT peeps teaming up with Mike Yates (!!!), and then you have Six teaming up with the Gallifrey team represented by Romana and Leela, and more, I mean what. And it’s like five or six ranges in one.

I mean.

You guys.

FUCKING DELIGHTFUL BALLS OF WHEEEEEEE

WAIT

HOW HAS TUMBLR NEVER FUCKING MENTIONED THAT THERE WAS ONCE A REALLY FUCKING HOT DOCTOR WHO

(AND THE ADORABLE OLDER DOCTORS ARE TOTALLY SMITTEN WITH HIM????)

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!

HE’S WEARING A CRAVAT!!!!! HE LOOKS ALAN RICKMAN WATERED DOWN FOR BASIC CABLE, WHICH IS STILL KIND OF ALAN RICKMANISH!!!!! 

HE’S LETTING HIS COMPANION TURN A DIAL WITH HER DELICATE LADY HANDS!!!! 

EMBROIDERED WAISTCOAT, ROGUE CURL STRAYING FROM HIS COIFFURE, AND HIS SLEEPY MARK RUFFALO EYES ARE CALLING ME INTO THE PHONE BOOTH 

WHO IS THIS CREATURE AND WHY IS HE STILL ATTRACTIVE LIKE 90 YEARS LATER?????

WHAT?!?!??!! THAT’S A FUCKING DOUBLE BREASTED LEATHER COAT!!!!!

TUMBLR, WHAT THE FUCK!!! WHAT DID THIS MAN DO THAT HE IS NOT A GOD AMONG YOU, THE WHOVIAN CONTINGENT??! if he did something terrible i will understand, and let’s be real it’s like 99.999999% likely that he did something terrible, but———what is a paul mcgann????

HOW DID YOU NOT KNOW ABOUT THE DELIGHT AND WEIRDLY HOTASS HOTASSNESS THAT IS PAUL MCGANN, DUDE. HOW. HOWWWWWW.

HE DOES THE CRAVAT THING FAIRLY OFTEN ACTUALLY:

Lt. Hotass

As well as rocking the long hair with delicate glossy curls that in no way detract from his amazingly androgynous yet manly yet gentle yet powerful gaze:

whoa big picture

And he was also in a little movie called Withnail & I like TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO and he and Richard E. Grant have creepily not aged at all:

Oh and my favorite part about him which sadly is hard to link to but is the fact that you’d expect him to have this kind of nice tenor voice or something, but NOPE he’s got this basso profundo husband material voice that grinds out of, I don’t even know, maybe his toes or maybe out of the center of the Earth’s molten core, it’s like any minute now he’s going to bust out a Shakespearean monologue and you’d totally be okay with that because he could probably get you off with the St. Crispin’s Day speech. JUST SAYIN’.

As far as I can tell his sin was being the Doctor who starred in a fairly mediocre - and AMERICAN - TV-movie version of Dr. Who in ‘96 that was supposed to spur a TV show, but for whatever reason (I think a combo of ratings, rights, and the UK freaking out over the idea of Dr. Who being made in the US) the show never happened. So that TV movie is all we get of Eight, aside from the tie-in novels (of which I may have read all of them. Spoilers: I read all of them). It had some greatness, like Grace the Age-Appropriate-Seeming Companion (as opposed to some wispy 19-year-old) and Chang Lee the Good-Hearted Sort-of-Criminal-But-His-Heart’s-In-The-Right-Place, and oh my god ERIC FUCKING ROBERTS as the Master, just chewing every piece of scenery he could get his hands on and being fucking hilarious. But sadly, not enough greatness for us to get McGann instead of Eccleston (who I love! but like, I could’ve done with a few years of Eight before moving on to NIne), even though apparently Moffat was inspired by McGann’s performance as Eight and thought it was cool. WHATEVER, still bitter after all these years.

Basically McGann is the George Lazenby of the Dr. Who franchise but he is still gr11 and weirdly beautiful and I have seen an embarrassing amount of his back catalogue because of that weirdly beautiful face.

If you are not already in love with him after these comments – and you damned well should be – you could just listen to him sing.

Watching all these people flooding into the discovery of Paul McGann and Eight is both a beautiful and hilarious thing to watch.

Wonderful commentary, but how could you go on about his voice (which is wonderful yes) and not mention BIG FINISH? Tie-in novels but no mention of years and years of Eight in BIG FINISH? So many hours of his wonderful voice and his wonderful Doctor.
Nonelvis and leupagus y’all really got to check out his work in Big Finish.
