A to Z Challenge - S
S is for "I'm so so sorry"
David Tennant's Doctor's unofficial catch-phrase. It usually goes "I'm sorry, I'm so, so sorry but..." and ends in disaster for whoever it's being said to. I most remember this quote from the episode Blink (which I have mentioned on more than one occasion!) in the video message he leaves for Sally Sparrow, but it appears many many times. Ten was a very sweet, very apologetic Doctor, but he never hesitated to make the tough choices.
I can't think of anything else to add (I've already said so much about Blink and Tennant's Doctor) so now it's your turn - who is your Doctor? Your companion? Favourite episode? Favourite quote?
I had such a love/hate relationship with Snape throughout the novels. I wanted to hate him so much, wanted to despise and loathe him, but JK Rowling made it so hard. I would inevitably find myself yelling at the book "why are you making me like Snape?! Why are you making it so hard to hate him?!". I both love and hate the scenes in the 7th book/8th film where you discover Snape's true motives; the scenes where Harry accidently reads Snape's mind in the 5th book/film. I can't say I ever fully loved Snape (because I was so determined to dislike him) but I did appreciate his character and the levels/layers/depths to him. JK Rowling's plans for the novels, the depths to which she had developed the back stories, was absolutely incredible, and can be seen when you go back and re-read the novels. As for Alan Rickman's portrayal of Snape... it's the same as Maggie Smith, Helena Bonham Carter, and Michael Gambon... it's all been said before. The absolute quality of the adult actors in these films is incredible - name a top British actor and there is a good chance they were either in the films or were approached to be in the films.
Stay strong everyone - not long to go now!
