Reblogs = inspiration. If you can, we're at the end of "The Crimson Horror". 11 asks Vastra for advice about his feelings for Clara, admitting he has them, but after Rose is afraid to act on them.

“Why are you looking at her like that?” Vastra asked in a low, playful tone that the Doctor was was entirely mistrustful of. Why must she be so perceptive about his life? Why must she notice the kind of things that others were wont to overlook?

“Look at who like what?” he asked, trying to downplay the situation and adopt a jovial, playful tone. “I’m not looking at anyone like anything. What an absurd idea. Why would I be? I don’t look at things. Not ever. I-”

“You’re looking at Clara,” Vastra noted. “Like she’s the centre of the universe. it has been a long time since I last saw an expression like that upon your face, my old friend.”

“She’s… something,” the Doctor admitted, gesturing vaguely with his hands. “She truly is something. A mystery. An enigma. A puzzle.”

“Something more, I feel.”

He sighed. “She’s clever, and she’s funny, and she’s…” he fumbled for the right description. “A match for me. In every sense.” 

“So why do you hesitate?”

“After the last time, would you not do the same?”

“Professor Song would have wanted you to be happy.”

“No,” he ran his hand through his hair. “No, not her… I meant Rose. After how that ended… how do I allow myself to love someone of an infinite lifespan? How do I voluntarily submit to that much pain?”

“But how much pain do you endure by keeping her at arm’s length?” Vastra asked with a wise smile, and his shoulders slumped.

“Must you always be so… deep?”

“When you’re as old as I am, you learn some things.”

ALL Modern Who LGBT characters!

Note: Some of these are total queerbait. But hey, I put them on here anyway.

Captain Jack Harkness 
(Omnisexual according to John Barrowman) (Romances anything that breaths) (Also could be polyamorous but that’s just a theory in the fandom) 

Alonso Frame
(Gay?) (Flirts with Jack Harkness after being set up by the 9th doctor) 

Ianto Jones
(Bisexual usually leaning towards women except with Jack) (only seen kissing Jack) 

Toshiko Sato (Bisexual maybe? It mighta been because of aliens) (has a sexual and romantic relationship with a woman but also has romance with a man) 

The Doctor
(pansexual as theorized by fandom) (kissed Rory as well as pretty much everyone else.) (Other theories on The Doctor’s sexuality include asexuality, heterosexuality, bisexuality, omnisexuality, polyamorous, and pretty much anything else you can think of.) 

River Song
(Bisexual or maybe pan. Moffat has referred to her as bi and I believe Alex has as well, but I’m not sure if the identity is confirmed since Moffat called Jack bi in the same tweet which is not accurate) (Married to at least 2 women and 3 men and flirts with anything that moves.) (Also might be considered polyamorous) 

Madame Kovarian
(Lesbian?) (Moffat has claimed she used to be married to Tasha Lem) 

[Enter the five minutes Amy thought Rory was gay here….] 

Madame Vastra
(Lesbian) (Married to Jenny. Kisses and hints at sexual relationship.) 

Jenny Flint
(see above) 

Oswin Oswald
(Questioning) (First kiss was with a woman -Nina, but she claims it was a phase) 

Tasha Lem
(Lesbian?) (Mother Superious of Papal Mainfraim, the church in space where you have to be naked) (Moffat claims she was married to Madame Kovarian) 

Clara Oswald
(Bisexual, identity not confirmed) (Kissed Jane Austen but also had a thing for 11) 

[I’ve heard Miss Quill isn’t straight but I haven’t seen Class so I don’t know] 

Bill Potts (Gay according to Pearl Mackie in an interview!)

Feel free to add to this list in reblogs if I forgot any!

Some Of My Favourite Things About The Nu-Who Era

• The Companions- particularly Donna, Martha, Rory and Bill

• River Song. Just, River Song.

• Captain Jack Harkness. I may not talk about him much, but he’s awesome.

• The epic adventure music we had in Matt Smith’s era. That was my jam back in the day.

• The casual LGBT representation. It’s been there since series one, but it’s never been a big deal.

• The Drunk Giraffe.

• There was actually an episode that used as many oo sounds as possible (Judoon platoon upon the Moon!) just to mess with David Tennant, because it was hard for him to maintain his English accent and say those words.

• I love the Master and Missy in equal amounts, because they are evil because they can be, and still act like the Doctor’s their best friend, especially Missy.

• Honestly, I’ll be sad to see Missy go- she’s basically a big ball of Glaswegian craziness, and she’s brilliant as a villain.

• The Paternoster Gang, because only on Doctor Who would you have a team comprised of a pair of interspecies crime solving lesbians and their pet potato.

• Nardole, mother hen extraordinaire.

• Amy and Rory’s relationship.

• “It’s smaller on the outside!”

• “Allons-y, Allonso!”

• “Bow ties/ Fezzes/ Stetsons are cool.”

• The Doctor’s entire message in Blink.

• All the nods to the Doctor’s past- Sarah Jane, UNIT, the Master, all the old monsters, even things like Twelve offering someone a jelly baby and the return to Coal Hill School.

• Many other things, but I can’t think of them just now.


“Madame Vastra in Doctor Who could be considered a female equivalent of Sherlock.” - Mark Gatiss, Women of Sherlock at the Radio Times Festival (x)

Will we get the equivalent of her relationship with Jenny…?
