I just realized something… Rupert Graves plays Greg Lestrade in Sherlock. Mark Sheppard plays Crowley in Supernatural. They have both played in an episode(or two) of Doctor Who with Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor.
I think this is the closest we’ve gotten to SuperWhoLock.
A follow-up tweet to this post by “marshcap” reads “Afraid of retweeting, aren’t we?” Because for those unlucky to get caught up in it there’s been a pretty intense firestorm of anti-Clara, anti-Jenna Coleman, and anti-Series 8 and 9 rhetoric on social media and media sites of late.
I can’t retweet because I am not on Twitter. But I can reblog. And I’m not afraid in the slightest (other than the possibility of losing a follower or two, but if you follow me, you know this is in part a Whouffaldi blog).
(I do draw the line at posting raunchy stuff, though. Not that type of a blog!)
There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget.
By accident, my sister came across these Doctor Who Series 9 videos byTheUnknownTechnician: some of the most extremely sad moments without the music. This means you hear every movement made. You’ll hear every breath, gasp, sigh, and any other emotional sound at maximum volume. This is like standing in the same room and witnessing the powerful acting between Peter and Jenna. The first one I watched is from Face the Raven when Clara discovers she’s going to die, and she does her final farewell speech to the Doctor. Listening to Peter’s panic breaths and Jenna’s rapid gasps was so difficult to sit through. :(
So let’s play some more! :D Here are other videos in chronological order:

All this is just dreaming. These adventures we’ve had, these scrapes and japes in Neverland, with monsters and ray guns and magic, they’ve been wonderful. Better than my wildest dreams. But you can’t hide in dreams. Everyone wakes up in the end. It’s time to stop dreaming, Doctor. Time to grow up.
