I never had watched a confidential before that one, because, as I've said, I want the story to explain itself. But someone who knows me well insisted I watch that one. And there was Russell, bless him, going on about the love story. He talked about it like I talked about it. Then, of course, when his book came out and he was there...saying..."The only reason the Doctor and Rose aren't together is because I didn't write it that way. It just didn't work. Rose would never leave the TARDIS." And I couldn't argue because that's what I'd been saying. :bashful grin:
Well, here he is in an interview for the BBC talking about the final day of filming. No more David Tennant! :SNIFFLE: And he says something about the regeneration...again, it's something I've said...
It's only a minor spoiler, don't worry (or get too excited).
It's just an offhand remark about something everyone is assuming, but RTD is enough of a creative force to know that you shouldn't encourage the audience to assume things will always be the same...you should shake things up when you can. This is the thing I'm most passionate about, good storytelling. And Russell is a good storyteller.
hoping he hands us our pony, because that will shake up Doctor Who like nothing but New Who ever has.
Oh...and p.s. Just for the fun of it...Sock Puppet Theater doing Planet of the Dead...too funny to miss. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZvbMA6x
