Doctor Who-The Impossible Astronaut [Fanedit]

Snapshot 1 (16-03-2016 22-13)

 

Special thanks to fellow Faneditor contributor TomH1138 for inspiring me to get off my toochie and finish the job I started with the trim of Day of the Moon I put together…this time I’ve decided to merge both parts of the opener of series six together to form a more coherent experience

What’s different? For starters, the pre-title sequence is now the minisode for the opener that came out online before the episode aired, which is a lot more serious and a great hook for the relevant plot points of the story. Why we didn’t get this I don’t know, Moffat thought it was better to have The Doc waltz in on Laurel and Hardy as well as up someone’s skirt. Family show folks.

Next, we skip Doc and River comparing notes in their diaries and head straight to Lake Silencio where The Doctor ”accepts” his ”fate” at the hands of the Astronaut. Following a fairly unedited and smooth trip to the White House, our next big edit comes when The Doctor is confronted by Canton and Nixon. We skip over the cerfuffle that ensues with The Doctor pinned down by security, as I find The Doctor seated in the White House commanding all of the attention seconds after detection much more in-keeping with the character.

Also gone is Amy’s first encounter with The Silence, and with the removal of the Silence killing the obnoxious White House intern. Again, less is more, and what you don’t see leads to a better pay-off with the info-dumping later on.

And then comes the part that  TomH1138  suggested…although he meant it as something to occur in a Day of the Moon-only context, I thought it would be much better if the now THREE Month time skip after Amy shot her own daughter opened with Melody regenerating in the street…adds a whole new and chilling layer to the mother/daughter dynamic. Stuff like that rubs off on an engineered psychopath out to kill good men in their youth you know.

Canton  no longer pretends to chase Doc and company at all ,we get our info dumping, and in a cut I’m particularly proud of, I get Rory to talk about the Silence editing themselves out of conscious memory right after River reminds Canton they met them at the warehouse.

A few light trims here and there omits Amy encountering Melody again later and her capture at the orphanage comes much quicker. Couldn’t entirely omit the Astronaut suit being found at her location, but it still works.

From there, the last edit is a simple cut-off after Doc and River have their first/last kiss.

Edit should be dropping later tonight

Doctor Who-The Eleventh Hour

Snapshot 1 (16-03-2016 22-13)

 

 

A fanedit of The Eleventh Hour with a few minor additions and trims,  cheif among them being the end of “The End of Time” for the pre-credits, and the omission of the fish fingers and custard scene, Jeff’s dirty internet history, The Doctor changing clothes and confronting the Atraxi, and The Doctor and Amy’s conversation outside the TARDIS

Doctor Who-Eleventh Hour Sample

 

Here’s a sample from some of my test edits with The Eleventh Hour
I decided to trim out The Doctor calling the Metraxi back to Earth. It was generally just an excuse to set up the costume change and a bit of fanservice.  In this edit, we cut from Amy unconscious in the hospital to waking up in her bed at night just as the TARDIS arrives, with The Doctor apologizing for running off (that’s all you really need to know to show some time has passed), I’ve also completely cut The Doctor sweet-talking Amy into coming on board. Here, she steps into the show immediatly

Doctor Who-The Beast Below (Fanedit)

Snapshot 1 (16-03-2016 22-13)

 

This is another stab at the second episode of Matt Smith’s stint as The Doctor. There is an earlier version of this edit available on this blog, and this one isn’t exactly too  different. Still intact is the “Meanwhile In The TARDIS” minisode as an alternative pre-credits sequence. The rest of the story is more or less intact, although this time I close it out on the hug rather than receive the phone call from Churchill, which leads into the next episode (which, by the way, is also the next edit on the way). High quality version will be uploaded soon, but for now here’s the scaled down Vimeo version

 

Doctor Who-The Pandorica Opens (Fanedit)

Pretty much the same as the audio-only edit I made. Not much missing other than the montage of places and people we met throughout season five, River’s portion of the cliffhanger, The Doctor’s Pandorica speech, and the destruction of the universe at the very end of the first part.
