Dreams from the Tardis: Don’t Blink.

This piece encroaches on the legendary, “… its bigger on the inside,” principle of the show. The Weeping Angels are there as these ultimate power hungry villains stuck on the outside looking in. Their single greatest ambition is to obtain the box and all the power of time therein. As its own entity, the police box is quite aware of things that are required from it. So I think that the Weeping Angel is a part of its consciousness in terms of the obvious magnetism that exists between them. But the angel is frozen in time without the box.

Dreams from the Tardis : The Novice.

This piece is #2 in the series. I chose Novice Hame because she’s a really controversial figure in the show. On the one hand she and her peers in the senate do everything they can to protect the people of their world, but to the point of tyranny. On the other hand, she is the guardian of the race, trying to ensure that the species is safe guarded from death and disease. She began with the purest of intentions. But her dream was flawed. A fact she was oblivious to until the Dr. pointed it out.

This piece is part of a Dr. Who series I’m working on. The show is amazing on so many levels! The themes are universal and there is something really beautiful about time traveling through the universe in something so ordinary as a police box. The Dr. himself has taken on many incarnations since the series began back in 1963. But this series is centered on my favorite incarnation, the 10th Dr., David Tennant. He is both timeless and timely all at once. He brings an element of fun to the dangers that plague our planet. He has a rebelious energy about him that I think serves the Dr. very well. The show is inspired so I think this is a great way to start the new year. Happy 2013 all!!
