So I know you kind of mentioned this a little when we've talked about other things, but I was wondering if you might be willing to make a (maybe in depth-ish?) post about your thoughts on Mary? Or if you already have, direct me towards it because I've probably missed it. I know you're a big fan of the original as well as the Mofftiss "Sherlock," so I'm really curious about your perception of how she was adapted.

The reason I barely even reblog Mary posts is because people keep accusing us of being misogynistic if we even suggest that we don’t think she’s a lovely person. I’ve seen friends and people I follow battle extremely aggressive and rude anons, so I mostly try to avoid the subject and continue shipping my OTP in peace. But of course I’ll write about this for you :), and let me know if there’s something else you want me to address.

ok so if river can escape prison so easily... why does she keep going back there? why doesn't she just leave forever? if she wanted the silence to think the doctor was still dead, then escaping doesn't stop that. if a murderer escapes prison, that doesn't mean their victim is suddenly alive again so that wouldn't raise the silence's suspicions. the silence know the crime wasn't willingly committed? so what reason has she for staying

Good question. There really is no obvious answer for that. She does say in Day of the Moon, right after the moment I giffed:

The Doctor: “You could come with us.”
River: “I escape often enough, thank you. And I have a promise to live up to. You’ll understand soon enough.”

But to my understanding, they never really clarified what this “promise” entailed. We do know that she knows that she’ll likely be in prison till after visiting Lake Silencio for a second time, but outside of that she doesn’t seem to have any major foreknowledge on that part.

I mean, there are plenty of way to explain why this might have been necessary, but personally I’d be moving dangerously in headcanon territory here and I hate guessing with a passion.

I’m tagging mewiet in this, because I think she wrote a wonderful analysis of this issue a while back and I can’t find it - maybe she’ll be nice enough to link me to it or give me her thoughts on the matter again (please?).

(Just read your tags.) Do you think Santa's going to turn out to be a villain? I've been very curious given Twelve's anti-Robin Hood stance that he'd be anti-Santa too, yet Eleven in "The Christmas Carol" indicated Santa was real (and went by Jeff). After ACC, I headcanoned that The Doctor and Santa were old chums and The Doctor once filled in for him, hence Nine's line to Rose about her bicycle. I'm hoping Santa/Jeff isn't retconned to not real this year.
