Summary: "There's one thing I always wanted to ask Jack. Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world; except sometimes he doesn't. All those times in history where there was no sign of him... I wanted to know why not." — Gwen Cooper, Torchwood: Children of Earth

Notes: About a year before Gwen uttered these words, the idea for this vid was born. Eerily enough I also wanted to know "why not," and so turned to the episodes that really shed some light on the Doctor, the episodes he's hardly in at all. And now I've been trying to come up with a way of condensing what this vid means to me into one paragraph and as you can see I have failed. So I'm just not going to say anything at all, at least not now. (My vidder commentary has all the gory details.) You guys have at it.

~ Must take a moment to prostrate self before ponderous77 who manages to multitask as my soundboard, my hand to hold, and the whip at my back whenever I vid Doctor Who. She was impeccable during the developmental stages of this vid and I should probably think about dedicating my first born to her or something.
~ To ohvienna I express my undying love.

~ Marble House was selected for In-Depth Review at Vividcon this year and I just want to thank milly once again for the INCREDIBLE presentation. Some notes from the discussion have been posted here and in more detail here. There's also some interesting meta in this post.

MARBLE HOUSE

I cut your nails and comb your hair
I carry you down the stairs
I wanted to see right through from the other side
I wanted to walk a trail with no end in sight

The moment we believe that we have never met
Another kind of love it's easy to forget
When we are all alone then we do both agree
We have a thing in common this was meant to be

You close my eyes and soothe my ears
You heal my wounds and dry my tears
On the inside of this marble house I grow
And the seeds I sow will grow up prisoners too

The moment we believe that we have never met
Another kind of love it's easy to forget
When we are all alone then we do both agree
We have a thing in common this was meant to be

Now where's your shoulder
What is it's name
What's your scent
Say it again
If it goes faster can you still follow me
It must be safe when it's on TV

I raise my hands to heaven of curiosity
I don't know what to ask for
What has it got for me?
The others say we're hiding
It's as forward as can be
Some things I do for money
Some things I do for free
