Doctor, Doctor Who?
What Rose brings to the Doctor’s life is completion, it’s completing a circle – he’s male, he’s alien, he’s a traveller. Between the two of them together they complement each other and discover each other. And are in love with each other, absolutely, unashamedly, unreservedly. - Russell T. Davies
Reblogged from attractedtosin with 6,868 notes / rose tyler has perfected the art of making out with her hand also moffat sucks bc no matter wtf is happening with river song no fucking way did he ESTABLISH that to rival this and that's a fucking shame bc guess what when you have zero emotional continuity on your show you can't really compete shame shame shame i'm gonna go read eleven/clara fic bc so far she is the closest to thematically rivalling rose which to me means maybe there is an attempt doctor who

And then I met a man called The Doctor. A man who could change his face.

Reblogged from hariboo with 602 notes / everybody should literally be blaming this d-bag for deciding not to be in the 50th anniversary special bc it's not like he didn't have the meetings about it! he did! he just chose NOT TO BE IN IT and bc of that there's now apparently a horrible forced plot situation starring john hurt as doctor 8/9!!! k;jsdbf;kjsdbf fuuuuuaaaaarrrrgggghhhh doctor who

#it’s the difference in their Doctors; it’s the difference in their arcs #everyone says that Clara looks like a mirror image of Rose #and perhaps in a lot of ways she is - but it’s a horror story #the Doctor leaves her alone in these nightmares time and time again #she sees the end of the world and she is horrified at his - lack #his cheery apathy #towards the deaths of the ghosts that live around him #For Rose and Nine though #the end of the world is melancholic - yes #but it’s also full of life and joy #the knowledge that mankind will go on; has stretched across the stars #and ultimately they watch the world end together #they make it a beginning #a personal intimate moment #strangely beautiful #about the endlessness of the universe and how very very small yet so so important humans are to its stars #it’s the start of healing and love #Clara and the Doctor have nothing like that #because while Nine was damaged - Nine was present #fully #and Eleven is just slipping away behind his impossible girls and his love stories hidden in a ghost mansion #he’s about the puzzles and the hidden things#never the emotions #never the people #Clara is already beginning to suffer for it #she realizes that though she said it - ‘I don’t want to be compared to a ghost’ - there’s not much else people can be to this Doctor #just fun spicy diversions he pops off to see in his little blue box (neverfeedthesarcophagi)
Reblogged from hariboo with 13,843 notes / nothing would make me happier than this show recognizing its own characters and the importance of CONTINUITY i would love this to be true i have absolutely no problem with this character being designed this way bc the audience doesn't forget the companions even if moffat does we mark how each one worked off the other in the rtd era we study their similarities and differences and what makes each and everyone of them special we see how they all affect the doctor - whichever number he takes as his name but in order for this to have any emotional resonance there MUST BE an attempt by the show to remember itself to fully acknowledge these characters as a continuation and a progression of emotional development for the doctor so far moffat has shown zero interest in attempting any kind of continuity beyond his own series and his own characters and i fear the only true thing we can be certain of with clara is that while amy's run was thematically deemed ~the fairytale~ clara's is ~the ghost story~ which isn't necessarily bad but it's just surface level good doctor who meta
