I want the Doctor to take a kid as his companion.
A 14-15 year old kid who’s parents are fighting, has few friends, bad grades, and feels like complete shit before the Doctor comes.
No kissing, complicated relationships, confusion or stuff like that, just the Doctor taking a kid who doesn’t see much out of life for a ride.
Whattttt? how did I not know about this?
Quick note: the lines don’t have to point upwards and straight next to each other, you can point them in any direction you want.
thank you, improbablenormality, for adding that, becuase I WAS SO FUCKING CONFUSED ABOUT THAT SHIT!
DOES IT GO IN A SPECIFIC DIRECTION?
DOES IT DEPEND ON THE LETTERS AROUND IT?
DOES IT NOT FUCKING MATTER?
that was hard as fucking hell.
Moffat on not having any Classic Who Doctors on the 50th anniversary special. (X)
I’m not even that invested in DW, but now I’m mad for so many of its fans. I’m trying to liken it to what would happen if, say, he tried to pull this kind of shit with the Sherlock Holmes franchise and I just… I can’t imagine. It’s like the guy thinks everything that happened before his reign as show-runner didn’t count. I don’t understand how you make this kind of decision and still try to present yourself as someone who respects the history of the program you’re in charge of — the WHOLE history, not just the small corner of it you control. I know I whine a lot about Moffat but this kind of attitude is why I dislike the guy so much.
This is an anniversary of the entire show, not just the past ~8 years. This is a show spanning fifty years and he’s decided to focus on the most recent decade and few (cough most recently popular and therefore the most marketable cough) leading actors so as to not “look backwards” — this is a show about fucking time travel, it’s the most bullshit excuse to just do things your way and dismiss any criticism lobbed at you, I don’t.
I completely understand not wanting to cater to fans too much, because shows and writers that do this have a lot of problems in more ways than one, but I feel honestly with an anniversary, it should be different. An anniversary is about a good show and delivering to fans, a celebration. The fans are the reason this show even exists, why not cater to them just this one time, make them happy? Fans should walk away from a 50 year (FIFTY YEAR) anniversary feeling the full weight of the entire show, not just the 2005 reboot — it’s not a eight-year anniversary, come on. You can’t really get the full immensity of the weight of this show’s legacy with just two doctors. I know people are excited for Tennat to return, and I like Smith well enough myself, but… come on, two out of eleven and you want to call that a 50 year anniversary? I’m sure the actors will do just fine, but try a bit harder to pull your head out of your ass, Moffat, just try.
in gallifreyan they don’t say “i love you” they say
how was rose not suspicious
all these seasons later I am still angry about this
I’M SORRY BUT-
I JUST CRIED
ten meets eleven and is deeply saddened
then he asks
“what have they done to you”
and breaks the fourth wall with a look
and then the bbc fires steven moffat
….and yes, there’s a good chance I’ll do more punk versions of Doctor Who Characters, but I can’t promise they’ll be up any time soon. Con season is now breathing down my back. But! That means if you see me at any con in the future (check my FAQ for a list of where I’m going) I’ll be selling post card sets of the doctors! Woo!
Doctor Who Meme | nine scenes
I just needed to reblog this again.
Because jfc, you don’t understand how important this scene is to me.
Or maybe you do!
Because it has Jack openly showing his affection and admiration for two people of different gender in the exact same way, making no difference at all, and neither do Rose nor the Doctor. Zilch. No hesitating, no flinching, no comic relief.
I wish it could be like this more often.
THIS SO MUCH.
It’s one of the things that was so well done during Nine’s season and that I hated later with Eleven. There was that one episode where he was with what’s his face and his baby and the fact that people took them for a couple was such a funny joke. And when Eleven kisses Amy or River it’s all kinds of a-okay, but with Rory it’s nothing but oh look what we did there.
That scene up there is doing everything right, end of story. And while Jack’s sexuality is often made out to be something to smile at, it’s also shown as very natural and Nine was just cool with that, no reason not to be.
As requested, a Punk!Ten to go with Punk!Eleven! Thanks to my livestream for heling with tattoo ideas!
And fear not, Punk!Nine is in the works. I guess I’m just going backwards.
For me, this is the most terrifying scene on DW.
Look into Wilfred’s eyes. Pain, fear, shame and despair.
Humans are the scariest things in the universe.
I remember actually feeling terrified at this part.
OH MY FUCKING GOD
i borrowed my friend’s laptop and here’s the desktop
which is a little creepy but ok
but did you know that you can set your desktop to change every now and then
BECAUSE I DIDN’T AND I MINIMIZED MY BROWSER
I NEARLY PISSED MYSELF
Just once, I’d like to see the Doctor travel with a smart, strong, sassy woman who’s not a size zero.
did you mean Donna?
by the way billie piper is a size 10-12
I’m pretty sure John Barrowman is at LEAST a 12-14 dress size.
