    My feeling is that the photos seen in Clive's shack are photos from the 9th Doctor's future, not past as it appears he had only recently regenerated from his discovery of himself in the mirror in Rose's flat. It is hard to believe that he had been through all these other various adventures in his current form and never came across a mirror until he got to Rose's place. So I tend to think of these photos taken in unseen adventures with Rose (though she is not photographed or pictured... it would have been very neat if Rose discovered a picture of herself among the photos of the Doctor).

    Cheers,
    Louis

    In his conversation with Jabe in The End of the World the Doctor mentions being on a ship (like the Titanic) clinging to an iceberg... Exactly how is that fantastic?

    That's true... so either he avoided any mirrors/reflections at that time or it was prior to his regeneration.

    Or maybe when he checked himself in the mirror in Rose he was just making sure he didn't have any crap on his face when he chatting up the pretty girl.. Timelords can be vain too you know Big Grin

    He did change his jumper! What's wrong with that jumper?

    Taras


    The jumper nobody liked? It needed a shirt under it, either a black t-shirt or a dress shirt, of course.

    Anyway .... series 1 cheese.... I admit it, I thought the Dalek episode was cheesy!

    Well, one person's cheese is another person's wine.

    Great sentence! The Doctor/Rose relationship is one of the many complex and interesting things in the series. Rose obviously fancies the pants off him, but she also sees him as a bit of a father figure. The Doctor's feelings are less obvious. The holding hands thing shows they are comfortable with each other - anything else is done quite tenatively. Lets see if she stil has the same feelings in series 2!


    I'm thinking that their relationship is one of those strong friendships, in which their is a certain amount of physical attraction, but neither of them are willing to take the next step for fear of irrevocably changing the quality and/or stability of what they have already.

    Also, the Doctor has been and always will be a wanderer. As he stated in Season 1, he does not do domestic things and wants no part of them. My guess is that he prefers the idea of always being able to move on. He's the sci-fi equivalent of Clint Eastwood's western heroes. When the job is done, he moves on, riding off into the sunset.

    Entanglements of the heart are part and parcel to domesticity in many ways. The fact that he doesn't take his relationship with Rose to the next level may be a byproduct of his unwillingness to stop travelling.

    Anybody he gets involved with will eventually die - I see him more like a vampire/highlander than an eastwood myselfSmile

    I confess that I've always wanted to see The Doctor do something, a la Clint Eastwood. I realize that he is too much of an idealist/pacifist to stoop to that level of violence, but just once it would be nice to see him lose his cool and go in guns blazing.

    I'm sorry we didn't get to see the end of the Time War on the small screen. That might have been one of those moments.

    He clearly regrets what he did. I wonder what he finds so disturbing about his actions? Of course, the core of his regret is most likely the fact that he was unable to save Gallifrey, but did his borderline irrational hatred of the Daleks (Dalek, Series 1) usurp all reason for a brief moment? Was he determined, no matter what, not to make the same mistake he did when he chose not to destroy the Daleks in Genesis?

    I say these things only because, in general, I prefer flawed heroes. They are easier to identify with. I think that The Doctor may be heading in that direction under RTD's guidance.

    As we have seen in Series 1, The Doctor was not above deciding that it was time for Cassandra to die (The End of the World). He could have "moisturized" her.

    Further evidence of this fact is also provided in Series 2 (School Renunion), when The Doctor says, "I used to have so much mercy." Clearly, that statement implies (at least in extreme cases) that he no longer chooses to excercise his merciful tendencies.

    Perfect heroes are perfectly boring. I applaud RTD and his crew for not making every situation the Doctor faces black and white. Nothing is ever that easy in real life, nor should it be in science fiction.

    If situations like these amount to "cheese", give me a plateful and hold the wine.
