The Time of the Doctor Deleted Scene: Let’s Have A Moment of Silence, Please!

Ah ha ha. See what I did there? No? Well, you’ll get it soon enough if you didn’t. Anyway, that final Matt Smith show was a corker, wasn’t it. No spoilers here, but I’ll say that ending sets up the Peter Capaldi run in a fun little way and makes me look forward to seeing this NEW Doctor at work. I have to give Steven Moffat some major credit for all these past years of plot hints coming in bits and pieces and basically ensnaring fans and non fans alike into sticking with even the silliest of shows because it all makes sense when you see those bits fall into place. I bet there’s a notebook somewhere with a chart and long, long list of whats, whys, when, hows and of course, WHO… but then again, the magic of this show comes from NOT knowing and just enjoying the ride.

So long, Mr. Smith – you’ll be missed, but I bet your Doctor will make an appearance at SOME point during the next 50 years. Better sooner than later, of course…

For perhaps 20 years or so I’ve been “holiday neutral” (for ALL holidays, mind you) but I certainly don’t mind people around me doing it up and having a blast. Heck, when invited to assorted gatherings over the years, I’d be that guy who pops into a party or dinner with gifts for everyone, maybe a pie if I had time to bake one and perhaps a bottle or three of whatever just to watch everyone open up stuff and have a blast. If I like the gathering of folks enough, I may even stick around to help with the dishes. But in general, I don’t go out of my way to throw up thousands of dollars in flashy decorations or leap around wearing a funky-ugly sweater tossing teddy bear mugs and peppermint marshmallows at random strangers with a big grin on my own mug…
