It's all mine... mine! My precioussss...

I want to stay up all night watching special features. And moments from certain episodes. Hell, I'd happily watch the entire run, nonstop. I know that's a bad idea. Doesn't stop me from giving it serious consideration.
I feel: hypersquee!

I heartily approve.

(Also, the first season takes nine hours and forty-five minutes to do continuously. :D And the Children in Need mini-episode and Christmas Invasion are both available on YouTube--we'll probably get the Christmas Invasion, but not the mini-ep.)

(Also, mmmmNine.)

Grrrr! If only I didn't have to get up at quarter past five for work, I would fully sit through the season.

Oh, and last I knew, the Children in Need mini-ep was no longer on youtube...

*goes to check*

...aaaaaand now it's back. woohoooooo! "Except it means... I'm going to change." Yeah. Just got weepy. The look on his face, in his eyes... I love him so. I'm sure I'll enjoy Tennant. He's charming and adorable and talented, but he isn't mine. *sigh*

*happysigh* Nine. And I can definitely sympathize about the "my Doctor" thing. (And Tennant really is very talented...there've been some issues with the directing--i.e. the directors took some time figuring out that Tennant does quiet, simmering rage infinitely better than OMFGSHOUTY!rage. But when he does quiet, simmering rage...yeah, I think "behind the sofa" is the correct phrase. *whimper*)

Which reminds me, how are the commentaries on the DVD set? Anything by Chris Eccleston or Billie Piper or John Barrowman? I know Tennant's done some for season two (the BBC website has them available for download), and the ones Noel Clarke's done tend to be pretty good (he's actually writing an episode of Torchwood...that'll be interesting).

I haven't watched the commentaries yet (I just got the DVDs yesterday afternoon) but I'll let you know!

No commentaries from Eccleston or Piper, but Barrowman does at least one. As does Simon Callow, and the actress who plays Margaret Slitheen, which makes me happy.

Thus far, I've watched the commentary for 'Rose.' They laughed a lot, and the track was happy and fun, but I wanted more goods on the actors (they did heap lauds upon Noel Clarke). Mostly it was "this is a London shot... this is Cardiff..." and "this was a longer scene," but still fun. And I'm such a dork I'm delighted to have more Who viewing time with any small tidbits I may not have known heretofore.

Oops... I'd said there were no commentaries from Billie Piper, but she provides two: Father's Day and Parting of the Ways.

John Barrowman does four, and good gracious me, he's delightful. You can tell he had a fantastic time. Steven Moffat (creater and writer of Coupling) does commentary on The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances; he's veryvery funny, and he and Barrowman riff off of each other. My favourite thus far, though, is Boomtown: it's Barrowman, Annette Badland (Margaret Slitheen!) and producer Phil Collinson having a hell of a lot of fun.
