all i want in life is more beryl

“In real life, Moffat doesn’t work with women. He doesn’t hire women and he doesn’t collaborate with women professionally.“

I think that will come as a big surprise to Sue Vertue, Rachel Talalay, Sarah Dollard, Sheree Folkson, Rona Munro, Beryl Vertue, Nikki Wilson, Caroline Skinner, Hettie MacDonald, Catherine Tregenna, Rebecca Eaton, Denise Paul, Beth Willis, Catherine Morshead and many others. Hate Moffat all you want, but let’s not erase all the great work these women have done on Doctor Who and Sherlock as writers, directors and producers. 



i love every adaptation that makes endymion out to be kind of a dick, rather than have beryl be completely delusion (which is unfortunately what most adaptations go with). beryl’s rage at usagi for taking everything away from her is a lot more sympathetic when we’re not then given a flashback of beryl staring at endymion from afar while he’s completely oblivious of her existence, cough pgsm cough.

but many baby beryl and endymion being childhood friends, despite it leading up to a clusterfuck of terrible i’d actually like to see it. could be adorable, in a somewhat messed up sort of way!
