YES! I loved the special, but I was bitterly, bitterly disappointed there weren't more companions featured beyond Clara (Billie playing The Moment manifesting as a echo/memory of Bad Wolf is fine; keeps the ship wars to a minimum and I like the concept of a weapon that's developed a conscience). As somebody else said, when all three Doctors were contemplating using the big red button, there were indeed Pompeii parallels to it.

(Although disappointed with the lack of Companions, I'm actually a bit pissed off that Eccleston didn't even bother even agreeing to do a 60 second cameo at the end. Perhaps if only because we know, indeed, that he's probably telling the truth when he said he turned down the opportunity to appear and that sucks that he couldn't even bother to show up for a full regeneration sequence near the end)

Like I said, I loved the special, but I would have liked to have had more Companions in it(The Coal School tie - in was nice and kind of falls in line with my own ideas for Clara for a fic I need to get back to). Donna especially would have been perfect in it. So, go forth and rewrite! The world needs more Donna!
 
Well, it's always a matter of finding a place for them that doesn't feel wrong or out-of-place, but I think there's a hole that definitely needed to be filled which she will do really well. There is certainly that parallel with Pompeii, and one or two similarities with points in S4 that deserve to be highlighted so I shall get to it and see what comes together.

Yes, I was hoping against hope that Chris would at least agree to be there for the regeneration scene. I think Moff did a great job with what he had, since those eyes were very recognisable, but it wasn't the same as seeing him appear at the end, even if he didn't say anything.

I agree that having the Coal School tie-in was lovely, as were the many other nods to the past, but the world always needs more Donna!

Ooh, your Smith and Noble icon!

Yay!

And no, that Hurt regeneration certainly wasn't the same without Eccleston actually being there, CGI be damned.

Yes, the world needs more Donna.

And yes, I know I need to get back to Smith and Noble. The muse was blocked for a long time and then stubbornly wanted to do a Clara centered multipart fic. I will get Smith and Noble out there one day, I swear.

I like your Eleven/Donna too.
 
I look forward to it!
