Here’s the first of what will likely be many portraits of the 13th Doctor. Couldn’t be more excited for this. I’ve long argued that the part should be cast to someone who the showrunner wants to work with and write for, regardless of race or gender. Chibnall has a lead that he knows well and loves to work with - this puts the 13th Doctor on excellent footing for season 11. Also, Whittaker is an excellent actor. This is the first time that a new Doctor is someone I’m already a big fan of. So yeah, great choice. As much as I’ll miss Capaldi, I don’t think I can be any more excited about 13.
For those that are upset that the Doctor is female: you can take comfort in the fact that a master chauvinist is President, so you know…your sexist world view is still sadly relevant. But really, get over it. The Doctor is the Doctor, regardless of who takes the role. Also, Michelle Gomez proved that a male-dominant role can be owned by a female actor.
Last week, I tweeted about wanting a Missy & Master story. Twas but a
fanciful wish. But this week, Simm announced he was returning. And I could not be happier. Some wishes come true, so this week I made some Missy, Master art…and the annoyed look that I anticipate from the Doctor.
“It’s like when you’re a kid. The first time they tell you that the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it because everything looks like it’s standing still. I can feel it. The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1,000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour, and I can feel it. We’re falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… that’s who I am.”
9th part of my DW project. Christopher Eccleston was my first Doctor - and even if I don’t count him as one of my favourites among the thirteen of them, he still has a special place in my heart(s). He is a sum-up of what every Doctor should be - able to making you burst out of laughter and then bring tears to your eyes from one minute to the other. He inspires me with powerful feelings everytime I watch one of his episodes and I only wish he’s had more screen time.
I´ve been working on this one for at least a week now :) always at School, of course. always when I was bored…so all of the time basically. some things didn´t turn out the way I liked it but whatever, I think it´s still cute ^^ I haven´t decided a title yet, it could either be “The One Companion That Will Never Leave” or “A Madman And His Blue Box”. should I color it in or nah?
