Let’s get one thing straight: when two characters are best friends and one becomes a villain and the other has to be the hero but they still don’t really hate each other and there’s a “come with me” or a “join me” or a “we can rule together,” it’s love. It is true love don’t even fight me on this
Doctor Who a decade ago: Oh, silly Martha, racism isn’t something you should have to worry about as a time-travelling black woman! In fact, racism wasn’t really even that big of a thing, right gang? Just be cool and these 1600′s white people will fully accept you! Oh, and here’s the Great Depression! These are called Hoovervilles! They’re cute little towns where people who don’t have anywhere else to go live to find love, acceptance, and fairness! This Hooverville’s lead by an inspirational black guy who gives white people, including Great Depression Andrew Garfield, the whitest guy, advice before inevitably getting killed! By aliens of course, not by racists, cause that would be crazy.
Doctor Who 2017: [After regency-era rich white guy spews slurs at Bill] HOW ‘BOUT A PUNCH IN THE FACE, YOU USELESS RACIST SCUMBAG? LEARN SOME DAMN RESPECT FOR MINORITIES, WOMEN, AND THE POOR! YOU KNOW WHO WASN’T WHITE? THE LORD! CAPITALISM IS A SCOURGE ON HUMANITY! I DON’T RESPECT YOU OR ANY OF YOUR OTHER BOURGEOIS SWINE FRIENDS!
“I reallyhate the doctor,, his ‘tactics’ are definitely the most painful,, and he smellsterrible. He seems like he just wants to pick on me to hear me scream and see me suffer. It feels just like high school all over again”
“As for the killer I hate the least,, it would probably be the Wraith. As scary as he is, he has a habit of letting me escape somewhat unharmed. I-I think we have an unspoken connection,,,”
