Pre-movie squee

After some frantic e-mail exchanges and several changes of plan, it's finally going to happen: monanotlisa and witchsis will be driving down to Utrecht tomorrow night to meet with db2305 and me, and we will all go to the pictures together! And not just any picture, either, no sirree - we are going to see Serenity, which has at long f*cking last come to a theatre near us!

I've been wanting to see this film for ages, partly because everyone on my flist has been talking and waxing lyrical about it incessantly, and partly because I've always regretted not having had much of a chance to watch Firefly when it was on earlier in the year...or was that last year? There was some talk of us CoRo groupies going to see it in Glasgow last month, but we soon realised that wasn't really an option what with the long trek back down ahead of us -- and then they all went and saw it without me! Biatches!

Too bad I have to work all day, though. I could have done with meeting up and having a natter beforehand.

And in other news, these words from David Tennant's lips made me squee liek woah:

The regeneration process is something David admits is an attractive part of the role.

"The fantastic thing about the regeneration process is that every time the Doctor goes through it, he changes to an extent. So as an actor, you get to work on a blank canvas where you don't have to worry too much about what has gone before.

"It's interesting, because he's always going to be the moral egalitarian, humanitarian, slightly wild, slightly anarchic bloke that he's always been. But because he's getting older he's moving on. He's seen it all before, every alien creature with a superiority complex."

David continues: "Viewers are going to see a slightly more no-nonsense Doctor and that is influenced by what Chris did with him. We are more aware that he's someone who fought a war, lost all his people and because he's the last Time Lord, the last authority in the universe, he's less indulgent, more ruthless."

So will Rose still want to travel through time and space with this man, now he's got a new face and mannerisms?

"The Christmas episode is a new start for the Doctor and Rose. They've got to rediscover each other and decipher whether they still feel the same about one another. Despite the new face, he is fundamentally the same bloke, he's still the Doctor and still has a huge amount of affection for her.

"However, it's not just the way he looks or the way he talks that is different. The Doctor's outlook on life has changed, as has the way he tackles situations. I think he's just hoping Rose can accept the changes and they can pick up where they left off."

Oh thank you so much for the interview! And there's not long until Christmas now... (and I haven't bought *any* presents yet! Woe!)

Oh and I hope you have a lovely time with your friends - not to mention Squeeeee! Serenity!!!!!!

Oh thank you so much for the interview!

It's the shout-out to CE that delighted me most, I'll admit; but the rest of it sounds pretty good and intriguing as well. Can't wait for The Christmas Invasion to see what he'll make of the role -- I know we had a little taster last week, but it wasn't enough, not nearly enough!

I hope you have a lovely time with your friends

Thank you! I have no doubt we will!

Squeeeee! Serenity!!!!!!

Exactly. ;-)

Thought that might get a rise out of one of you at least! Was only kidding, though, of course you're not biatches. Not really, anyway...;-)

I just got there first!

Not intentionally! ;)
