Adore the accent and smooth tones he's putting on. And by 'he', I of course mean John (Simm), because he's all I really care about. I'm fickle? Also, just a teensy bit in love.
John, you may as well have been painted blue. Did you? ... I just... what? Not even as Kendle were you forced to be so salty. ---- Yes, this is a reaction to "funny is like this/not funny is like this". I'm just completely - what? What what? I've seen some pictures which make me think that Elling may encompass this kind of insanity too. Which kind of makes you ask the question - what's with all the OVER THE TOP roles lately? Not that I am complaining. But, still.
And suddenly the trailers make sense. Hee. Oh God.
"And he's handsome too." - Damn straight. I think John may actually be making up for lack of smiling in LoM with this role. Or, even, lack of smiling throughout his entire career.
"My faithful companion." - With leaning and pockets and RUN, LUCY, RUN.
OMG, VAUDEVILLE. OLDEST JOKE EVER, AND YET I STILL LAUGHED. A LOT.
"The Master was always sort of hypnotic" - O RLY? TELL US MOAR. (My mind went to places.)
Benevolent Master, really, in't he?
CRAZY EYES - YAY JOHN, YAY!
Okay... that... hmmm. (More places.) THIS WHOLE CONVERSATION IS MADE OF WIN. JOHN IS USING HIS SEX VOICE. IT'S DOING INAPPROPRIATE THINGS, IN PLACES. OMG. OMG. OMG.
More Time War stuff that has great significance.
"I've been alone ever since. But not anymore. Don't you see? All we've got is each other." = Russell T Davies lives up to his reputation. And then hangs a lantern on it. Hahahaha. Nice. "Are you asking me out on a date?"
"Oh, you public menace. Better start running, go on. Run, Doctor. Run for your life. I said RUN."
TELETUBBIES ARE EVIL. (Also: gay?)
"Oh, the one that ran away. I never stopped." (Read: went mad.)
"I did it for you in your honour." = Lots and lots of orgies. Just for you, Doctor. In your honour. Also - crappy writing from Chris Chibnall, some bad acting, and COMPLETELY USELESS EMPLOYEES. Except Ianto, who knows his way around a stopwatch. In your honour.
"I found a pen, a sweet, a bus ticket and, uh, have you met the wife?" = HAHAHAHAHAHA. Can't help but think that John was secretly super happy to finally be given oneliners. And he's good, too. But, I don't know if it's Gene, or just because I can't quite get the John Simm = Serious Acting equation out of my head - Phil's better at oneliner delivery.
I love his coat like crazy. I want it.
"Hahaha! Hi guys!" - The fuck? Hee. So. Damn. Insane.
"Misery guts" - one of my very favourite phrases. I use it a lot.
HE REDECORATED. HE WANTED LAWRENCE LLEWELYN-BOWEN, BUT HE WAS BUSY THAT DAY, STICKING ZEBRA FUR ON AN OTTOMAN.
"Jelly baby?" = Fanservice. Mmm. Tasty.
I think Russell should have had a blogger as one of his 'people of the world'. He mentioned one last episode. It would have been a nice touch.
"People just get obsessed..." - It's the talent.
THAT POSE IS AWESOME.
"We meet at last, Doctor. I love saying that." = You know what? I can't help but think that's 100% truth.
ROGUE TRADERS, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. INSANE. In a small, tiny part of my mind, I was wondering, and then I thought "nahhhhhh."
I can't help but think it was cruel of them to have The Master touching the Doctor only when he was all age-ified.
All in all - John Simm like I've never seen him before (And kind of never want to again, after next week and possible s4 appearances, to be honest. It's just not right.) And a plot that kept me sustained. There was lots of fanservice. And Simm's laser screwdriver is bigger than Tennant's sonic one.
