We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
All of the episodes arent from the doctors perspective because all of the episodes are from the tardis’ perspective
Its always there
And we know that it is a living consciousness that can go invisble and travel in time
Meaning it can record all of everything in doctor who
“You let one of them go but that’s nothing new. Every now and then a little victim’s spared because she smiled, ‘cause he’s got freckles. 'Cause they begged. And that’s how you live with yourself. That’s how you slaughter millions. Because once in awhile—on a whim, if the wind’s in the right direction—you happen to be kind.”
Season 1 is perfect. Actually honestly perfect. Christopher Eccleston is flawless and incredible and even though he only did one series he really GOT The Doctor and in my opinion to this day blows his predecessors out of the water (not that I don’t love them).
He is MY Doctor, the first one I ever saw and he astonishes me to this day with layered performances I’m still discovering. I mourn the possibilities that could have happened if he had stayed but am thankful that he (and the writers and producers) could make this show what it was for an entire generation of kids.
Series 1 is massively underrated. It was silly whilst holding its head high, dark whilst being respectful of its roots and exciting without being over the top. The perfect balance, the perfect Doctor, the one perfect series.
