An Everlasting Companionship: The Doctor and his T.A.R.D.I.S

When you hear the term ‘the Doctor and his companion’, you immediately envision the Doctor with either Rose Tyler, River Song, Amy Pond, or the so many others that the Doctor has travelled with on his seemingly endless journey across all of time and space. However, what most of us forget is that one companion who has been with the Doctor since the beginning of his journey. Who was the one who stole a Time Lord just because she wanted to see the whole universe?

It was none other than the T.A.R.D.I.S. She has been the one who has forever and more been with the Doctor during his time of joy and disappointment, no matter who the Doctor turned into, and whom he brought along, the T.A.R.D.I.S was always there like a solid rock much like a promise that sustains the Doctor through his many forms.

The bond that the Doctor and the T.A.R.D.I.S share makes you wonder when and if you will ever be able to find that companion of yours who will stay by your side and be worthy of comparison to the T.A.R.D.I.S.  Will you find someone who doesn’t always say what you want to hear, but definitely says what you need to hear? Someone whom you can go to at the end of your day when your shoulders are drooped because of all the burdens and worldly sorrows, and that person will soothe you and calm you, allowing you to recuperate in their presence?

How many of us are truly so lucky as to find our own Doctor or T.A.R.D.I.S? it is a question that I have often asked myself, and so far it hasn’t happened. Oh wait, it did happen once, almost, but he didn’t quite turn out to be the Doctor, no, he was more like an empty shell of person worthy of being a valued addition to the hoard of Cybermen, lacking any and all emotions, and completely self-centred.

Maybe someday, one day, one can only hope that one finds someone who is like the Doctor or the T.A.R.D.I.S, whom they can be the perfect companion to. Someone you can steal away from the world, and take away with you to your own Mind Palace. Someone old, someone new, someone borrowed, someone blue.

When Rose is lost and Donna forgets,

When Martha leaves and the Ponds are taken,

When River bids goodbye and Clara seems impossible,

Who is it that keeps the Doctor sane?

It’s me; I think you call me Sexy.

Movie Review: Star Trek: Into Darkness

Ratings: 3 1/2 /5
If the Oxford English Dictionary had to add a new synonym for the word ‘magnificent’, it would be Benedict Cumberbatch. The whole movie watching experience when it comes to Star Trek: Into Darkness starts and ends with him. Right from the first glimpse of his, your heart will thump, hard, like you have been working out for a couple of hours, and won’t stop thumping until the very end of the movie; well, maybe not even then.

Benedict Cumberbatch overshadows all the remaining actors on the screen, and you will be waiting for the next time he is a part of the scene. This may sound more like the review of Benedict Cumberbatch’s acting skills than the review of Star Trek: Into Darkness, but that is what the whole movie really comprises of. The storyline of Star Trek: Into Darkness is very reminiscent of any regular sic-fi movie, and although there is nothing wrong with that, we do expect something better from the Star Trek franchise.

The thrills and chills are many, especially when you see Ben in his billowing coat and the signature high cheekbones; you cannot help but think of Sherlock. Every expression of his is a treasure to watch. The way the emotions roll over his face seamlessly, that man might as well have invented the term ‘acting’. Every move of his, his disheveled hair, every word that flows out of his mouth will have you gasping for breath. If you want to keep your heart rate up and rising, then don’t visit a gym, no, just watch Benedict Cumberbatch in action.

The mere sound of his voice is enough to bring someone out of an irreversible coma. Such is the enigma called Benedict Cumberbatch. Star Trek: Into Darkness is indeed a good movie to watch and Ben’s presence adds to the reasons that you must watch the movie, come what may. I am going to cut out the scenes that Benedict Cumberbatch is present in, put them together and watch them repeatedly until they transform into the wallpaper of my Mind Palace. Oh yes, I am!

Nutella is the Ultimate Alien Technology

Hold on, don’t be so quick to pass judgement or discard my hypothesis as the ramblings of a delusional person. I have some theories that will prove beyond doubt that Nutella is no ordinary chocolate that you simply spread onto your morning toast or have chunks full of when humanity deceives you, no, it serves a greater purpose.

  • Anti-Dementors Effect: What is the one thing that makes us feel better after we have had an encounter with a Dementors? Yes, its nothing other than good old chocolate. And what is the best form of chocolate known to mankind? Nutella. Hence, it is safe to say that Nutella is no ordinary human creation, it is something that has been given to us by our friends from the neighbouring planet.
  • The Mind Palace: What is the one place that Sherlock loves to disappear to? His mind palace of course. Yeah, he says it is to think better and escape ordinary people and their jibber jabber, but it is actually because the walls of his mind palace are made of hardened Nutella! Yes, I am quite sure of it, because why else would he want to go there so often? He is Sherlock after all, he doesn’t need to be in a different place to think, he is a genius! No imbecile like Anderson could really impact his thinking, as he can think on the go, but he prefers to do so in his mind palace, because it is made of Nutella.
  • Fuel for the TARDIS: If you are a Whovian, then no doubt the one mode of transportation that you would love to try out is the TARDIS. Who are you kidding, you would happily give your right arm in exchange for one ride! So the question is what fuels the magnificent TARDIS? Yeah, the Doctor says that it is the Artron Energy from the vortex, but think about it, do you think something as amazing and 21st century defying would not require the help of the best form of chocolate in the world, AKA Nutella?

Go on, you can contradict me all you like, but somewhere I have gotten a tiny corner in your brain thinking, is Nutella merely a chocolate, or some form of alien technology that we are being fed to enhance ourselves? Because heaven knows we do need enhancing!
