Behind the scenes of The Stolen Earth / Journey’s End

"I’ve been at the pizza," confesses David Tennant, returning to the Dalek Crucible after lunch.  "I’ve had four pieces."

"Four pieces," exclaims Catherine Tate, "and you’re so thin!”

"I can’t put on weight.  I’ve tried."

"I can," barks a Dalek.  "It goes straight to my hips."  Nicholas Briggs is misbehaving with his ring modulator.

"What’s going on?" pipes up Camille Coduri.  "Is everyone bullying my David?"

And so it continues.  Spend five minutes on set with these people, and it’s readily apparent why every former cast member who was asked to come back jumped at the chance.  They’re all having so much fun!

— quotes from Doctor Who Magazine #398, as reported by Benjamin Cook

"I have often said that Hermione is a bit like me when I was younger. I think I was seen by other people as a right little know-it-all, but I hope that it is clear that underneath Hermione’s swottiness there is a lot of insecurity and a great fear of failure".

I'm trying to mix magic and science in the story I'm writing, or at least have them coincide in the same world. Do you have any tips for this?
frostythenotan asked

thewritingcafe:

My first tip is not to over-think it. A lot of writers, when writing science fantasy, get frustrated with finding a way to integrate fantasy and sci-fi tropes in the same story. It can actually be really simple. An example is Star Wars. Most people would classify it as sci-fi because of the laser guns, droids, aliens, light sabers, space ships, and more, but it also has the Force, which is basically magic.

However, there is a trick to integrating these two genres if you want them to be mostly in the middle and not leaning toward one genre or the other. If the magic outweighs the science, people will see it as fantasy. If the science outweighs the magic, people will see it as sci-fi. A good example of an entire genre that often mixes science and magic while being successful is steampunk. I would recommend reading some of that.

When you are building up your world, you should consider what is considered magic, what is considered science, and what is considered both. For example, alchemy can use chemistry and magic, making it a magical science.

The science part does not have to be future-like tech either. It can be modern technology and science.

Some relevant tropes that you might want to check out are: Magic from Technology, Magic Powered Pseudoscience, Sufficiently Analyzed MagicMagic vs Science, Magitek, and Technopath
