Ask me anything   Submit   20something librarian who works for a bank (go figure) in midwestern america. mostly doctor who (classic/new/big finish), but you'll also find welcome to night vale, ashes to ashes, firefly, my mad fat diary, wonderfalls, my so-called life, corgis/kittens/other cute things, puns, politics (of the progressive variety), and whatever else appeals to me at the moment. but mostly doctor who and cute animals.

Ok, seriously… that audio clip about the Cybermats has got to be the most utterly horrific thing I have ever heard in my entire life.

I’ll never look at Cybermen the same way again. I may even consider them worse than Daleks now.

Thank gods they don’t put that kind of thing directly into Doctor Who on the actual show. I just… augh…

The EU is an extremely cruel and terrifying place.

OH MY GOD THIS MAKES THE EPISODE “CLOSING TIME” A MILLION TIMES MORE TERRIFYING

On the planet Cantus, a human colony previously invaded by Cybermen, Benny and Jason make a disturbing discovery.

(For bathtubbutterbeer, because I was telling her about this this morning and thought she might want to actually hear it.)

Crying because I just finished reading Beautiful Chaos (a Ten and Donna Doctor Who book). There’s a letter to her mother set after the Sontauran attack, but before she lost her memories. They received the letter only after Donna had her memories wiped. 

Oh, wow, I forgot how much this book hurts. And it apparently made a few people at the BBC actually cry.

Wwwwhhhhyyyy must this book be so good?!

WHY MUST YOU HURT ME IN THIS WAY

I’M SO SO SORRY!

Not you jnevole I mean the pERSON WHO WROTE THIS HEARTWRENCHING BOOK

That too. WHY, GARY RUSSELL?! WHY?!?!?!?

Also, a major secondary character in the book is Wilf’s girlfriend, an astronomer who has Alzheimer’s. During the final confrontation with the big bad, Wilf sings a song to her, one that she used to sing with her husband, and she joins in, and it is the SADDEST THING EVER, made even sadder by the fact that Bernard Cribbins reads the audiobook.

It’s only Monday, but I’m pretty sure my brain is already completely fucking done, based on the conversation I just had where I lacked the ability to read our company letterhead and mixed it up with a competitor’s.

Hey people, does anyone know what’s the regular price for the Excelis audios?

Not sure where you’re located, but here are the US regular prices (via archive.org)

CDs for everything but Excelis Dawns: $16.79

CD for Excelis Dawns: $23.51

Download for Excelis Rises: $7.99 

Download for Excelis Dawns: $11.99

The subscription for the four is only a little over $25, and I’m pretty sure that’s what it was before the sale.

(apologies if you’re in the UK or elsewhere and this post was totally useless for you)
