Dotor Who: The Day of The Doctor

23 Nov

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   First of all Moffat you win again! (my mind has been blown to Gallifrey and back!) I truly do not know what to think anymore this episode has finished me and do not know how to start…it was great.

Image

 

So first of all the Fez drops and it gets picked up! I will try to say as many things without spoilers. 

Image

Oh and Rose is back in a way but not really but yes, we are dealing with time and space after all.

Image

 

If you have seen the previews you know that we get more than just one Doctor and John Hurt who appeared in the previous episode. 

Image

 

Ok now for some spoiler like comments, the following material is not appropriate for those who have not yet watched this episode.

Image

 

So as we first begin this episode we see that well the Doctor does not remember John Hurt. However as they begin to talk and bond they realize that they have much more in common aside from well being kind of the same person.

Image

 

Here is the best bit they all make up a plan to actually save Gallifrey (yeah I know right mind Blown!!) So they have all of the re-generations of the doctor work together towards this plan.  

Image

 

SO the command center of Gallifrey actually says that all 13 Doctors rush to save Galifrey (Thirteen Moffat is trying to give Whovians heart attacks) 

Image

 

The question that remains is whether or not the doctor(s) succeeded in saving Gallifrey. The problem is that the chances of remembering they saved Gallifrey might not happen and they will never know.

Image

 

Then Tom (frikin) Baker, I just realized that they hinted at the fact he would appear note the very long scarf. 

Image

 

Lastly Matt Smith joins the ranks of the Doctors which in a way I think is his way of saying good bye like the ones before him.

Image

 

It took 50 years but I think that there will be another fifty to come and many more doctors to join. 

Image

 

Till the next episode.

Just A Reminder…Doctor Who is Tomorrow!!!

How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu

14 Nov

Image

This book is a confusing and interesting read, I would recommend this book to any self professed nerd (not that the tittle would not interest any nerd) but the use of physics and mathematical language is brilliant in my opinion. 

Reasons to read this book?

If you have ever had any type of conflict with a parental unit as a child.

If you do not call a parental unit often enough as an Adult.

If you are interested in time travel.

You like Paradoxes, or time loops.

You have a soft spot for fictional dogs

You believe you can be the main character in your universe.

 

This story is great because it explores a world where time travel is possible and  what people in this world do with this ability. You get to experience the loneliness of those who choose to escape life by always staying in a different universe that does not require the normal time sequence that normal life does. 

enjoy the sadness of this book, and the main character’s growth throughout his own story, and do not forget to live the life you have and read on.
