An incredibly small internet celebrity who really likes Doctor Who. As featured on Doctor Who News!
Sorry for the ads guys! I have serious medical problems and showing these helps me pay for them.. Take a look at them if you want to support me and find them interesting. If you really hate them, feel free to use adblock, but it'll make me sad =(.
Do you like what you see? Donate to help me cover my medical expenses! There's a chance I won't survive without my medication and visits to the doctor and it's all stupidly expensive (American medical insurance covers almost none of it) - it currently eats about half my salary! If you donate today, you can help with that!
Big spenders get preferential treatment in requesting reviews or historical write-ups!
Man I just had a thought. For April fools this year I should have made my blog a Ten/Rose fanblog for a day.
Fun facts about classic whovians you never knew!
- Classic whovians can perceive roughly 38 more colours than the human eye
- Classic whovians can go without drinking for 2+ weeks at a time
- Classic whovians cannot die of natural causes; if not killed, they will continue growing forever
- Classic whovians can survive in the vacuum of space
- When threatened, the classic whovian will display it’s large, colourful frills in an attempt to ward off the attacker; if this fails, it will spray venom into the eyes
- It is said that to see four classic whovians together foretells an oncoming death
Apparently, Classic Whovians are all Dilophosauruses.
Dilophosaurus didn’t actually have a frill or spit poison as far as we know; the creature pictured is, in fact, a classic whovian of the subspecies Medicus Octavo Fanaticus, likely taking on it’s threatening pose in response to google docs crashing or one of it’s larger cousins suggesting the EDAs aren’t canon.
No, that’d be a picture of me during my watchthrough of Davies Who.
Umm, this is going to sound terrible, but I didn’t study really.
Basically, what I did was I went online beforehand and I looked at what the various parts are like. I don’t know how much this helped, but it really saved me some time reading the instructions because I knew what each part was going to be like beforehand.
In total I put in about 10 minutes. But I wouldn’t worry too much about your GRE scores.
Here’s a general idea of what selection committees are interested in, in order of importance (top to bottom):
There’s a little bit of fluidity here - for example if you overcame homelessness like I did to pursue academia, then your story is more important than your grades. And if your grades are incredible, they can overcome some lacklustre letters of recommendation. A good GRE can help if you don’t have a particularly compelling background. Likewise, extremely bad results can tarnish others. A really bad GRE can hurt how they take your grades, etc.
I think the only thing that CANNOT be overcome is a poor, or even a mediocre, personal statement. So make sure that’s great.
So yeah… Feel free to reblog as I feel this might help other people with their research interests.
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary is coming soon and we at Who-Reviews recently had the ending spoiled for us.
In the ending, we learn who Clara really is and what connection she has to The Doctor and the Time War. And who is John Hurt’s Doctor?
Also, will a Classic Doctor make a return after-all? Spoilers below…
New blog incoming in the next week or so…
It’ll be in addition to this one, don’t worry.
But just wait till you see the title…..
Buffy episodes costed less to produce.
These facts are not unrelated.
