Bring Back Donna Noble (to Doctor Who)

doctor donnaDonna Noble (Catherine Tate) is special. She was one of the very few (if only) Doctor Who companions who was a mate, just a friend and yet a really good friend. Donna started with a Christmas episode with the 10th Doctor. She was swept away from her wedding and off to an adventure with Doctor Who.

At one point Donna was the most important woman in all of creation (she saved the whole of reality from the Daleks). Then she was left back at home to go on with her life, not even knowing she had been so much more.Her adventure ended (far too soon) when the Doctor had to erase her memory of everything they had done and accomplished together. It was a tragic ending. A sad ending.

Donna Noble should have had so much better. In a later episode they brought her back as the 10th Doctor was dying – as a way of making amends (to fans I think) Donna was given a winning lottery ticket as she married someone else. To wrap things up with a tidy bow – the money for the ticket came from her Father who was deceased in the present.

Donna was gone too soon. She had so much potential and so much more storyline could have been developed – it wasn’t right to take her away and try to tie up the loose ends in a pretty bow for fans.

How could I ever go back to normal life after seeing this? I’m going to travel with that man forever. Donna Noble.

Take All Your Chances While You Can

“Chances” – By Athelete (As heard on Doctor Who)

Take all your chances while you can
You never know when they’ll pass you by
Like a sum the mathematician cannot solve
Like me trying my hardest to explain

It’s all about your cries and kisses
Those first steps that I can’t calculate
I need some more of you to take me over

Take me over

If I had the chance to start again
Then you would be the one I’d come and find
Like the poster of Berlin on my wall
Maybe there’s a chance our walls might fall

It’s all about your cries and kisses
Those first steps that I can’t calculate
I need some more of you to take me over

It’s all about your cries and kisses
Those first steps that I can’t calculate
I need some more of you to take me over

I know I because I cant calculate

How to respect you
How to start again
How to start again
How to start again

It’s all about you

Happy Monday!


It was going to be a happy Monday but I ended up staying in today and trying to make this place look more like a home rather than something I’d take a picture of when I’m out looking at abandoned houses. I still have a living room half full of bags of stuff.

We found another bag stuck under the basement stairs at my Mom’s house. The books and assorted things in this bag included an old book: The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, written by L. Frank Baum. I don’t know what it would have been worth, it was published in 1902 and this would have been one of those first editions as it came from a house which was torn down when my Mother was a little girl. It was her Aunt’s house and all those books were first editions and la-de-da back then. What a shame it is one of the worst damaged books.

I’m still making my list of books for the insurance. It’s taking up a lot of time. Kind of interesting to see other books by the authors which I hadn’t known about. I had a lot of books bought new and it had been awhile since I bought many others, not new anyway. Either way you can’t replace them except by paying the current price. I wonder how much the insurance will cover for them all. Might cover bills here for a month or so. That would be nice.

Roxanne’s birthday is this Sunday in Newmarket. I am thinking to go. We just had the party for her sister this past week but the girls have birthdays in the same month. Zack is October so they are all three really close when it comes to having parties. At least I don’t have to bring down anything. They have more toys than they play with already. She needs clothes that fit and are warm. But, no one seems to make sure she is wearing them when we do get them for her. So I will just attend and get a few more pictures to email my sister once I’m back here.

Doctor Who will be on tonight and I will be able to watch it now that I’m the only one here to care. I should make ‘must like science fiction’ a requirement when I’m thinking about datable men.

Good Bye Doctor Who


I haven’t been a Doctor Who addict but I admit to watching the old series as often as I could, back when it was on TVO regularly. Tonight was the final episode of the new series which CBC has been re-running from BBC. Christopher Eccleston has been a great Doctor Who and I really don’t see how the new guy will be able to top him. I’m going to miss him when the new season begins. Where does the old Doctor Who go when the new face/ body comes in? There’s a little sci fi mystery for you.

Good bye Christopher, sorry to see your season as the Doctor end.
