; stole a time lord

the Doctors as Homestuck classes

The aspect of the Doctor is obviously Time, and I really liked the idea that he would have a different class with each regeneration. Because that’s what regeneration is - you’re essentially the same person, just your appearance and attitude changes, so your aspect stays the same, you just interact with it in a different way.

These may not be 100% accurate, I haven’t watched all of Classic Who so I know some Doctors much better than the others.

1 - Thief. Stole the TARDIS and also two school teachers. Left his granddaughter on Earth and broke the TARDIS of another renegade Time Lord, the Monk (so stole their time-travelling abilities from them)

2 - Rouge. He had companions from different time periods, stealing them for their advantage. For example, he took an orphaned girl from the Victorian era and she ended up finding a new loving family in 2017

3 - Page. Starts with a lack of his aspect, being stuck on Earth, unable to fix the TARDIS to leave it for the longest time. Fixes it later and indulges in more awesome time shenanigans.

4 - Heir. Tom Baker has been the Doctor on screen for the longest time (7 years), he’s the icon of classic Who, embodying it in some way. Also he’s weird, like his wibbly-wobbly aspect.

5 - Mage. Mages suffer, and that’s what Peter Davison is really good for. He passes out in like, half of his episodes, if not more. Also during has era one of the most tragic deaths of a classic companion happened.

6 - Bard. The producers didn’t treat Colin Baker’s Doctor too well, so he became possibly the most unpopular Doctor. Although he’s redeemed in the books and audioplays. Also had an interesting dark side to him.

7 - Maid. He was really dark and had weird relationships with spacetime rules, sometimes really sticking to them, sometimes blatantly breaking them.

8 - Sylph. As the TV show was put on a 16-year-old hiatus, Paul Mcgann’s Doctor kept the fandom alive first in the TV movie and then in the countless audioplays.

9 - Seer. I feel like out of all the doctors, Christopher Eccleston’s was the best at “feeling” the time. Like in that scene from “The end of the world” when he was able to walk through the fast spinning fans. Or his speech in “Rose” about feeling the Earth spin under his feet.

10 - Prince. As the seasons evolved, Ten’s destructive intentions unraveled more and more, ending with “Doctor Victorious”. See “The Family of Blood” and “The Waters of Mars” when he literally went against the laws of time.

11 - Witch. The most time shenanigan inducing Doctor. Rewrote the laws of time on multiple occasions.

12 - Knight. Spent 4 billion years in the Confession dial for Clara and lost his vision protecting Bill. Nuff said.

...Ok, seriously, what is wrong with Exile? Everyone keeps bringing it up as a terrible thing, and having not heard it, I can't really see what all the fuss is about. Is it the "gender change only happens via suicide" thing, or the "First female doctor is an inept drunk" thing? Or is it David Tennant eating lard?

 It’s basically built around a thematic argument against a woman as the Doctor. For one thing, the Time Lords pursuing her treat it as disgusting, and as I’ve mentioned before, she gets killed because of that. But what’s more, great swaths of the narrative are even built around her former self calling her disgusting. And the inept drunk is part of that. It’s a story about the Doctor being depressed because they aren’t the Doctor, heroic man traveling time and space, but instead a drunk woman working in a supermarket. Making her a woman as part of that, even without ill intent, is defining the Doctor against being a woman, as well as against drinking and working in Sainsbury’s. That’s the way the story builds itself. The Unbounds are all about tweaking the narrative of Doctor Who, and the what if here isn’t what if the Doctor was a woman, but more what if the Doctor was cursed with not being able to be the Doctor, with transphobic jokes everywhere on top.

Like, actual quote. “Doctor, you have been found guilty of crimes against the laws of time and Time Lord decency. You stole a TARDIS and interfered in the affairs of others, but worst of all, you had a sex-change regeneration.”

Hell, even the suicide thing is part of it. It stigmatizes it, as an unusual death, an aberration. Gender change is treated as an abnormal and icky spectacle rather than something to be respected.

Here’s an interesting and fairly uncomfortable video about Exile from the time, which I think illustrates the stigma pretty well.


Celebrating New Who: Favourite Episode (3/3)
↳ The Doctor’s Wife

  • The Master: My dear Doctor, I'm here to assist aliens who want to invade the Earth. I'm not here because I heard you were stuck alone on a primitive planet full of apes and wanted to visit you or anything. btw, I brought flowers. But let's be cool about it.
  • The Master: And I stole some files from the Time Lords. But obviously I only did that for an ancient weapon I read about once. Not because I wanted to see you again or anything. Or because I thought you might enjoy some time-travelling or seeing a new planet or anything after all this time.
  • The Master: Hope you didn't mind falling from that radio-tower. I didn't kill you while you were regenerating, because obviously I have a much smarter plan to kill you once and for all. Not because you're new regeneration looks really pretty or anything...
  • The Master: So yeah, I did build you this city so that you can recuperate from your regeneration, but I should tell you that I sort of abducted your best friend and hang him from my ceiling. I'm not jealous. Kill you later...
  • The Master: Don't mind me, I'm not here to see you again. It's all about...uuhmm..stopping the Magna Carta. See, I got red hair and a French accent and a shapeshifting robot and everything!
  • The Master: Sorry, not sorry for pulling your Tardis off course. I didn't want you to miss the official school reunion. See - the Rani is here too! That's how official this is!
  • The Master: Okay, I sort of saved you from being executed by the Time Lords, but look at all the killing and betraying I did. So...still enemies, right?
  • The Master: Oh, you're new regeneration is young and adorable? Look at how young and adorable I can be.
  • The Master: Maybe I should tell you that I'm going to take over the human race, conquer the universe and create a new Gallifrey. You remember Gallifrey? That planet I didn't care about, almost destroyed myself, but you kinda miss? Yeah. That one. But that has nothing to do with you,
  • The Master: And I'm also going to shrink you and put you in a cage instead of killing you. For reasons, you know?
  • The Master: I heard you like humans - so all humans are me now.
  • The Master: Look at that bondage-chair. Just like in old times isn't it?
  • The Master: I'm so evil.
  • The Master: xoxo, your arch-enemy.
  • The Master: PS: No mixed feelings right?
A Guide to Time Lords (Updated)

This is an revised version of a post I made a year ago that now includes all the Time Lord characters that were introduced in 2013 as well as a few I missed the first time around. 

The Doctor (An Unearthly Child - The Snowmen)

A mad man with a box. You may have heard of him.

Susan (An Unearthly Child - The Five Doctors)

The Doctor’s granddaughter. The unearthly child. Big fan of John Smith and the Common Men.

The Meddling Monk (The Time Meddler, The Dalek’s Masterplan)

The first in a long line of villainous rogue Time Lords, although he is more mischievous than out and out evil. 

The War Chief (The War Games)

A prototype Master with some Seneca Crane-style sideburns. 

Time Lord Judges (The War Games)

Lacking anything even remotely resembling a sense of humour, this trio oversaw the Doctor’s trial and exiled him to Earth.  

The Master (Terror of the Autons - The End of Time)

The Doctor’s nemesis, the top dog amongst evil rogue Time Lords, and owner of one of the most magnificent beards in the universe.

Banker Time Lord (Terror of the Autons)

Warned the Doctor about the Master being of Earth. The Doctor thought his outfit looked ridiculous. Ha, he’s one to talk. 

Bad 70s Hair Time Lords (Colony in Space)

They don’t do much except tell us that the Master is up to something and take part in a small ‘Who Has the Worst Haircut’ contest.  

Omega (The Three Doctors, Arc of Infinity)

A great intergalactic engineer and one of the co-founders of Time Lord society. Got himself trapped in an anti-matter universe and lost his head. Literally. Despite being defeated by the Doctor(s), he showed up years later hiding out in Amsterdam. Purely for evil purposes, though. Nothing at all to do with the legal drugs. Honest.

“Heroes don’t exist”: Moffat and the good man

Written for Moffat Appreciation Week Day 4: Favourite Theme

“Clara, be my pal and tell me. Am I a good man?”

- The Doctor, Into The Dalek

“You were the best man, and the most human human being, that I have ever known.”

- John Watson, The Reichenbach Fall

Moffat’s era centres around two main concerns: stories, and the people who live in them. His love of story is fairly straightforward, as direct as it is magical – his tales follow fairytale logic and fairytale morality, carving out a space in a cynical, jaded world for the wonders of our childhood to breathe. Fairytales, in Moffat’s stories, are an unambiguous good, their nature questioned constantly but never their value.  

But his relationship with fairytale heroes is somewhat thornier. Because right from the beginning, Moffat attacks and deconstructs the very idea of an all-powerful, all-righteous hero – replacing Davies’ lonely god with a madman in a box, digging into Conan Doyle’s famous detective and finding the eccentric, slightly broken man at his core. Moffat’s stories have never been about heroes; they have, instead, always been about people.

His heroes – his Doctors, his Sherlock – are flawed men, just as capable of weakness and wrong as they are of strength and healing. But through them, and through their stories and the stories of the people around them, Moffat weaves a tale of what a hero really is, and what kind of hero we really need.

Because heroes don’t exist, and yet.

For David Tennant’s birthday, Big Finish has put a number of audios with him on sale. That means it’s once again time for me to warn you all off of Exile, no matter how tempting an audio with a woman as the Doctor and with David Tennant in the cast sounds.

Unless you want an audio with:

  • The Doctor drinking and vomiting (with very realistic sound effects)
  • Major transphobia, including some voiced by David Tennant
  • A very loose plot revolving explosive gasses from human waste in the car park at the store the Doctor works in
  • David Tennant eating dog food
  • Frequent discussion of poo
  • Yet more transphobia
  • Seriously, here’s a quote from it: “Doctor, you have been found guilty of crimes against the laws of time and Time Lord decency. You stole a TARDIS and interfered in the affairs of others, but worst of all, you had a sex-change regeneration.”

This is not the audio for you.

The Doctor’s Wife must be a little bored by now

In a supremely popular episode of Doctor Who, The Doctor’s Wife, we see the Doctor’s TARDIS come to life in the form of Idris. In one scene, we see the followint interaction:

IDRIS: Do you ever wonder why I chose you all those years ago?
DOCTOR: I chose you. You were unlocked.
IDRIS: Of course I was. I wanted to see the universe, so I stole a Time Lord and I ran away. And you were the only one mad enough.
DOCTOR: Right. Perfect. Look at that. What could possibly go wrong?  

In His Last Vow, in the confrontation between Sherlock and Mary, we get this lovely line:

SHERLOCK: The doctor’s wife must be a little bored by now

And later in the same episode, when John is wondering how he ended up in this situation, Sherlock says:

SHERLOCK: Because you chose her

Except John never chose Mary did he? Mary wanted to see the universe, so she stole an army doctor and she ran away.

Mary chose John. Mary stole John. 

Look at that. What could possibly go wrong?

10 Things You May Not Know About ‘The Time of the Doctor’

Regeneration stories are always special in Doctor Who. And this counts double for a regeneration story that both acknowledges the rules as set down by previous generations of scriptwriters, and then goes on to add new layers of folklore for future fans (and showrunners) to puzzle away at.

So amid all of the debate over which of the Doctor’s regenerations we have reached, and whether he must die at the end of this incarnation, we find out exactly how elastic Time Lord science and physiognomy can be, discover that the Doctor did indeed manage to save Gallifrey somewhere, and get to see a wooden Cyberman.

Here’s BBC AMERICA’s recap of the story, and assuming we’re all caught up with everything, here are your 10 facts:

1. It’s probably not that big of a surprise to note this, but this story takes place over a longer time period in the Doctor’s life than any other, as he ages 900 years while defending Trenzalore. “Utopia” sees the Doctor travel over a greater span of time, but it’s a blink of an eye as far as the TARDIS travelers are concerned. “The Time of the Doctor” is also the shortest regeneration tale of all the televised serials. “The Night of the Doctor,” while only 7 minutes long, was not intended for conventional broadcasts.

2. The original plan was to call the story “Twelfth Night” as a seasonal reference and pun on the arrival of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. But as it had been preceded by “The Name of the Doctor,” “The Night of the Doctor” and “The Day of the Doctor,” it was felt the title “The Time of the Doctor” would complete the series more fittingly.

3. When the Doctor has to try and translate the messages coming from the crack in the wall on Trenzalore, he uses the Seal of the High Council of the Time Lords, saying that he stole it from the Master in the Death Zone. This is a reference to “The Five Doctors,” the 20th anniversary special, in which four of the Doctor’s first five incarnations (and several of their companions) are whisked into a gladitorial arena on Gallifrey with various Daleks, Cybermen and the Master. 

To read the remaining 7 fun facts, head on over to the BBC America website to check them out!

Tune in to BBC America tomorrow night at 8/7c to watch The Time of the Doctor as part of The Doctor’s Finest.
