Imagine the First Doctor calling the TARDIS “sexy”.
Doesn’t fit, does it?
The first Doctor didn’t actually KNOW The TARDIS, though. He didn’t know at all how to fly her, and up until The Edge of Destruction he had no idea that she was anything more than a machine.
You don’t have pet names for people (or sentient machines) you don’t know.
And different Doctors would have different pet names for her, probably.
That’s what I think. I’m sure each of the Doctors called her something else. The Eleventh Doctor, as we saw in The Eleventh Hour, took a delighted look at her and said “you sexy thing”.
I’m sure each of the Doctors — even the first, the one who normally called her “the Machine” — had a private pet name that he called her, when there was nobody there…
Oh, my beautiful idiot. You have what you’ve always had. You’ve got me
In his Hugo acceptance speech, Neil Gaiman mentioned some exciting news: He’s writing a second Who episode. In fact, he mentioned that only a fool or a madman would attempt to write another episode of Doctor Whoafter having pleased people so much the first time around — so he’s on his third draft of a new episode now.
We caught up with Gaiman at the Hugo afterparty, and he told us more about this surprising turn of events. Apparently the new episode is slated for the second half of season seven, which means that it could air as soon as spring 2013. But Gaiman pointed out that “The Doctor’s Wife,” his Hugo-winning episode, was originally slated for season five and got bumped to season six for budgetary reasons. The same thing could easily happen to his new episode, he said — and it sounds like this is another super-expensive story to make. Fingers crossed we get to see it sooner rather than later.
I wanted to see the universe, so I stole a Time Lord and I ran away. And you were the only one mad enough
It’s a good list that includes Madame De Pompadour, Adric, Idris, and at least one Rory. Read the rest over at Anglophenia
