Sonication by oboe-wan Sonication by oboe-wan
Underwater adventures with the Eighth Doctor, because...

My friend was talking about wanting a "bubble setting" for the sonic screwdriver; but of course a sonic device really could make bubbles underwater, as sonication and ultrasonication is used in degasification (removing dissolved gases from liquids).

And I picked Eight because he had the best hair for the scenario. And ... because.

In the words of the Tenth: oh yes!

I honestly never thought about the whole 'survive underwater because sonic screwdriver' thing before, but now you mention it, it does rather make sense. Hmmn. Bit surprising the writers of the show haven't used that yet.

Oh goodness yes, he certainly has the best hair. Option B is Four, because he also has the hair and then there's the scarf to go trailing poetically in the water behind him, but..... no. No, I'm gonna stick with Eight as the best option here too. Because of Reasons.

I'm just curious though: why's he barefoot? What happened to his shoes?

Oh you are right about the scarf.  That is a missed opportunity, it's true. Also I think "trailing poetically" is my favorite description of Four's scarf, ever.

The bare feet just looked right?  I guess if you were going to leap into some body of water with peril behind or ahead, you might still take a moment to kick off your shoes so they don't get waterlogged and drag you down too much?  I figured he had time to remove coat and shoes before diving in.  And I don't know, I don't draw feet very often and it seemed like a good time for it.  And we know Eigth has strong feelings about those shoes, so maybe he wanted to leave them in a safe location rather than risk losing them in the depths, or risk getting them wet so they didn't fit quite as well anymore?

Ah, well I am glad that the reason to have him barefoot had to do with footwear preservation. I just remember looking at it and thinking *gasp* he's left his shoes behind - now they're lost forever and he DID love them so much! (I just assumed there was enough danger behind him for him to not go back) But provided the reason he took off his shoes was to save them, I am perfectly happy with this. The main thing is: wherever they are, they're safe. XD
