Sometimes I feel like there’s a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean…I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing… I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for.
Clara and Ashildr often take companions with them. So far, these companions have included: Journey Blue, Vastra and Jenny, River Song, Jane Austen and Sally Sparrow. The girls all formed an LGBT+ group soon after and meet up every so often in random times to give education about sexual identity and orientation.
This is my idea for a replacement episode to Girl In The Fireplace. They travel to Victorian times and Ten runs into Sally Lockhart, who happens to look just like Rose! When Sally and the Doctor share a kiss, it’s because he thinks she’s his companion and they’re upping their relationship to the next level. When he is quickly informed about the mistaken identity, he realizes what a twat he’s been and much he really wants to kiss Rose. The episode becomes a catalyst for what the Doctor and Rose really want from each other - plus, you know, helping Sally with a good old fashioned mystery. ^_^
Benjamin Cook: “You had just one day on set with David Tennant. Did he live up to expectations?”
Carey Mulligan: “You can’t not get on with David, cos he’s so brilliant. He’s annoyingly nice. When you’re acting with him, he’s so engaging. He gives 100% on every single take, whether it’s a wide shot or a close-up. He makes everything look so easy. I mean, he does this every single day; we’ve only been doing it for a fortnight. It’s exhausting, but it’s so much fun, and no one is taking it too seriously. I mean, we’re not making a Spike Lee film; we’re making Doctor Who. Yesterday was my favorite day, I think, cos Finn and I were throwing ourselves around on the TARDIS, which is what it’s all about. You get the gig and you’re like, ‘Wow, I get to go in the TARDIS!’ In everyday life, to throw yourself onto the floor is so against your instinct, but here you just do it, without even questioning. I’ve got bruises all over me today.”
[…] Finlay Roberson: “What’s weird is that we’ve only had like half a day with David Tennant. But you could see from that short time that his personality, his charisma, his smile, and his sense of humour, is just perfectly suited to the show. He’s fantastic.
[…] Phil [Collinson] is more worried about the Doctor’s straight-to-camera scenes. “It’s a lot for David [Tennant] to learn in the middle of a very grueling block,” he says. This episode will be filmed in tandem with Human Nature and Family of Blood. “When will he fit it in?”
“In the script, he is actually reading it from an autocue,” Steven points out. “He’s reading a transcript, isn’t he? Aren’t I nice?”
“He won’t do that, though,” predicts Russell [T. Davies]. “He’ll want to learn it.”
Steven shrugs. “Tell him it’s method!”
