One of the most saddest parts in Face the Raven, and where I really feel the tears in my eyes, is at this point. When Clara discovers she can’t be saved by anyone, but then looks to the Doctor as a last hope and he gives her that sorrowful stare. You know his answer is one he doesn’t want to say, and to have to say it breaks both of his hearts. There’s very little dialogue in this scene, but there’s a whole lot of emotion that was brilliantly acted between two incredible performers.
Me (on my deathbed): But if Paul McGann was around at the time of filming and even agreed to reprise his role as the Eighth Doctor, why couldn’t he have taken the place of the War Doctor in the Doctor Who 50th? 🤔🤔🤔
If these are gonna be my last words, then you’re gonna listen; I
met the Emperor. And I took the time vortex and poured it into his head,
and turned him to dust. Did you get that? The god of all Daleks, and I destroyed him.
