David Tennant’s Contributions to Doctor Who Episodes Evolution of the Daleks “Walking on Theatre Chairs” Edition
Excerpts from Doctor Who Magazine issue #383: James Strong’s “Director’s Diary” for Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks
The Doctor faces the remaining Daleks and the imprisoned Sec in the theatre. We have to use the whole space, so I decide to put the Doctor and the company in the stalls. However, that puts them miles away from - and at least six feet lower than - the Daleks on stage. I ask David how he feels about crawling to the front and leaping on stage, but he suggests standing on the seats instead. Genius! David is now eye to eyestalk with his nemesis.
Poster’s note: This post is part of a series on some of the contributions that David made to episodes of Doctor Who, because he sometimes gets questions about ad-libs or input he may have had to episodes, but he tends to not take credit for his various additions/suggestions - so I figured I’d list some for him. I think this one is notable because it is a cool moment made even cooler by the fact that he walks across those chairs without breaking eye-contact with the Daleks (and manages to do so without falling and breaking his neck)
your latest ask has me shook, I can't stop thinking about how frustrated Bakugo would be if his crush CONSTANTLY got his name wrong, and it turns out they know his name, they just wanted him to pay attention to them
So I paid myself some money and here it is. Inspired by you and this anonymous lovely! Get ready to be shooketh some more!

The spikey blonde growled under his breath for the umpteenth time that day.
“Right! Right… Ba-ku-gou…” you repeated, slowly, for the
umpteenth time that day.
Everyone in your class wanted to know what kind of spell you
had placed on Bakugou. The usually short-fused teenager was surprisingly
patient when it came to your mistakes when calling out to him. Well, as patient
and docile as the fireball could be. There had been many desks lost to Bakugou’s
explosive fists, but never once had he pinned you against the wall or lifted
his hand against you. This behavior, you said to everyone, was probably because
you did manage to beat him once in an arm wrestling contest your first day in
class. Sure, you had won with the element of surprise—no one had expected you
to be able to bulk up your muscles that severely. But ever since that day,
Batsuki here had come to really respect you and your quirk.
“Anyways as I was saying… Batsuki, could I borrow your
calculator later tonight? I kind of got frustrated yesterday night and… well… thbbt” You slammed your fist against
your hand and blew a raspberry to try to get a point across as you walked with
him back to your dorms.
“It’s Bakugou!” He growled one more time, his hands turning
“It’s just so hard to remember! You have two really weird
names,” they weren’t really weird at all. “What’s your first name anyways?”
“It’s fucking Katsuki!” The boy turned on his heels to face
you. “That’s bullshit—they’re not hard at all! Kat-su-ki Ba-ku-gou! They’re fucking
easy as shit!” His hands flew up to ruffle
his hair up in frustration, leaving you standing in silence. You hadn’t seen
him that frustrated in a very long time.
“… I’m sorry. I see this isn’t funny anymore,” you finally
said as you scratched the back of your neck, giving him a nervous smile. “I
know it’s Katsuki Bakugo, I just, well, how do I put this… you just actually
talked to me when I called you the wrong names. Otherwise, you wouldn’t even
realize I existed,” you looked down, biting your lip as you felt your face grow
The silence afterwards made you want to dig a hole and die
“… Whatever. Call me whatever you fucking want.” You looked
up just as he turned around again and walked in front of you. His voice sounded
softer, and… were his ears red?
RAPPA. OMFG I love Rappa so much. I love that he wants to challenge Kiri again. I love the conversation between Fat and Rappa and the ZERO fucks he gives about the Yakuza and how he just wants to fight and be challenged and win and KIRI HAS IMPRESSED HIM. SO. MUCH.
KIRI HAS IMPRESSED ME A WHOLE DAMN LOT TOO SO HONESTLY SAME RAPPA SAME
I actually love Rappa so much tho??? He’s fucked up but his interactions with Fat in this chapter were golden and anyone who can see Kirishima’s greatness has my love by default - at this point I can’t even really put him between the villains cause, well, he isn’t a good guy but I can’t say he’s a bad guy either? He’s just got his own agenda (if you can call his desire to have a good fight that) and he goes where it’s easier to reach his goal, that’s not bad. That’s nice, he’s a nice character
sorta sad we probs won’t see him again after this, since he’s gonna be arrested… ehh

“No, I’m not gonna do that. But somebody should’ve a long time ago. Probably some poor kid who got off the bus three stops early because they couldn’t deal with your dirty looks or the sounds of your snickering two rows behind them. You wanna know what’s inappropriate Addison? You. You’re inappropriate. And you need to be stopped. Because I was that kid on the bus”
