Doctor Who Gifset The Impossible Planet- This episode and the next are the two episodes that made me realize Ten was my Doctor, even though I started with Nine, don’t get me wrong I liked Nine a lot, and I’d already was loving Ten before this as well, but I just didn’t feel like I could really say okay Ten is definitely my Doctor until these episodes.
In this moment right here during the Impossible Planet, the Doctor just lost his Tardis, Rose and him are stranded on this planet that shouldn’t even exist, but actually it can. That is because I took astronomy and technically anything caught near a black hole with equal or lesser mass doesn’t get sucked in it just orbits it like how the Earth orbits the sun, and the planet or anything would have to be really close to the event horizon before it is sucked in or even starts to fall apart due to the gravitational pull.
Yay science, but anyway back to the topic on hand, Rose realizes the Doctor is scared even though he is trying to keep a brave front, so she tries to be brave too, but after feeling an initial quake from the planet being ripped apart by the black hole; she all of a sudden notices how much trouble they are in. The Doctor doesn’t say anything when she changes her mind because he knows that they are literally fucked at the moment, but instead he just grabs her pulls her close reminder her that it isn’t much, but at least he is there with her, and that they are together. And that to me, speaks on so many levels about Ten and why I knew he would forever be my Doctor. Even though he has no clue what to do next, he still tries to reassure Rose that she and everyone will be alright. He doesn’t even say anything he just holds her, and that is enough. Sorry this turned out to be really long excessive rant about this gifset.
Summary: —Doomsday AU— What would have happened if the Doctor’s lever had been the one to slip? If the Doctor had been the one trapped in the parallel universe? Rose has to pick up the pieces and carry on in his place. After all, someone has to be the Doctor.
Doctor Who Greek Mythology Meme: [1/10] Rose Tyler as Aphrodite
In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty and sexual rapture. According to Hesiod, she was born when Uranus, the father of the gods, was castrated by his son Cronus. Cronus threw the severed genitals into the ocean which began to churn and foam about them. From the aphros arose Aphrodite, and the sea carried her to either Cyprus or Cythera. Hence she is often referred to as Kypris and Cytherea. Homer calls her a daughter of Zeus and Dione.
