A Pictorial Synopsis of the Doctor and his Companions (Or possibly just Rose, depending on how long this ends up!)


.

Now, I know I promised not to write any more Doctor Who stuff until Matt Smith reappears in March but this was a requested project. I have a friend who, through no fault of her own, has a kind of ADD in which if sentences are longer than five words, she needs an illustrative picture. She also has some serious love for David Tennant (Don’t we all…) and she asked me to do a picture blog of Doctor Who for her, leaving out the actual sci-fi bits and just focusing on the soapy parts – like when Rose’s mam gets off with the Doctor….just kidding!

.

So, here, is my attempt at a DW picture blog. If it gets too long, I’m just going to do Rose (If only she’d let me…) and maybe fit the others into another blog. Time will tell. Here we go….

.

Rose Tyler met the Doctor back when he looked like Chris Eccelston - 9th Doctor From here she went travelling in TARDIS - Time and Relative Dimension In Space around time and space.

At the end of series one the Daleks took over a space station called ‘Satellite 5’ and Rose destroyed them all by absorbing the Time Vortex which then began to kill her. The Doctor reabsorbed the time vortex from her like so and promptly died.


No just kidding, that’s just the prologue.

The Doctor regenerates Regeneration into , which freaked Rose out because she didn’t know that would happen. She was also probably secretly saying “RESULT!” in her head.

.

After a bit of Christmas Craziness (we’ve all been there…) the new brings Rose to New Earth , where her body gets possessed by Cassandra resulting in her doing this until Cassandra gets sick of possessing people and pretty much fecks off.

.

The rest of series 2 whirls by with a host of werewolves, clockwork men, and face eating tellies. Until we get to Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, when, the Doctor asks Rose how long she is staying with him to which she replies “Forever”. Aww….

.

Anyway, that didn’t happen. Our two characters end up in the Battle of Canary Wharf, fighting both Daleks and  (Jesus, have they no sense of scheduling? One tries ending the world today, the other can have a go tomorrow!)

.

Anyway, some time travelly stuff means the Doctor can send both enemies back into the void between the universes. Unfortunately, Rose slips and is about to fall into the void and death when, Pete, her alternate universe Dad, zaps through, rescuing her, transporting her to the alternate universe , which gets closed off with the time vortex . Cue heartbroken 

.

Bad-Wolf Bay: the Doctor “burns up a sun to say goodbye”. Rose tells him she loves him. . Just as he is presumably about to say the same, the hologram image he’s beamed down to earth disappears before he gets the chance.

Cue heartbreak. Number 1 in Channel 4’s Top 50 Ways to leave your TV lover. Not a dry eye in the house…

.

So, my request is complete. I have broken my promise, taken up an awful lot of blog space (!) and have made myself cry again by having to rewatch Doomsday. It’s a tough life.

.

This time I really do promise the DW posting is over until March!
