"Who Da Man?"

Posts tagged ‘Doctor Who season 6 part 1’

I’m moving!

Now don’t get worried, this is only for improvements, in fact, it’s already been quite helpful. I wouldn’t blame you if you’re wondering what ‘It’ is, given the complete lack of information! The ‘It’ in question is not in fact a disembodied walking hand, it’s the fact that I’ve registered a domain. That’s right, Who Is The Man can now be found at www.whoisthemanpodcast.com, there’s no .Wordpress.com needed.

This blog will stay up, but the main activity will happen at the new website. Everything will be just like normal (well, as close to normal as I can get), just somewhere else.

‘Who’ – Is The Man Podcast episode 23: shouldn’t it be Husband?

Hello wonderful listeners! Here I give you the late 23rd episode of ‘Who’ – Is The Man Podcast. Sorry for the delay, but Ihave been very busy! In this episode I review Doctor Who: The Doctor’s Wife, Neil Gaimen’s brilliant episode!

The next episodes will be with you soon, so please send feedback to my personal e-mail address (because the others are having trouble) rhys@ecoman.com.au.

Next time I will review The Rebel Flesh and The Almost People.

NOTE: the editing for this episode is very shoddy…as I said, I was busy!

My rambling thoughts on Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut.

So, we’ve all seen it have we? If you haven’t don’t read this, it does contain spoilers. Ok. Well I’m going to have to watch a few more times to get my thoughts completely straight to review it on the podcast, so I’ll just give you some points that stood out.

Ok first off, I liked it. I want to say I love it, but I’ll have to watch it again to know if I do or not. One thing I really noticed was it seemed it was really wirrten for the Amercian market. Now that’s not a bad thing, I love Amercian TV, but this was very different to the normal… British feeling/style Doctor Who normally has.

Now, some of the reasons why I was slightly let down.

1. I loved season 5.

2. I think a lot of it was just intodunced as the plot needed. For one example, after The Doctor’s been shot half way through Regeneration thus killing him, and they need to get rid of the body, Rory just happened to notice the boat. That’s why I’m going to watch it agin, it may ahve been set up, I might’ve jsut missed. Also that lead to one of the best scene, The Doctor being burnt in the boat with some absolutly brillaint music from the amazing Murray Gold, but how the story got to that scene was…for want of a better word, random. That happened a lot in this episode.

3. A bit too much sexual innuendo.

But on the positive side. As I’ve mentioned, Murray Gold’s brillaint music! Also, Matt Smith, Karen Gillain, Arthur Darvil, Alex Kingston & Mark Sheppard ALL did excellent jobs! I was really impressed with Matt Smith, you could tell that he was the older Doctor at the begining, whilst still being his normal (if that’s a word you can use to discribe The Doctor) Doctor. Then we have the ever wonderful Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvil who always do fantastic jobs, they didn’t let us down this time. And as always Alex Kingston protrays the extremely interesting River Song excellently.

So there we go with my ramdon thoughts, I’ll probably go a bit more indeth on the podcast.
