doctor who series 8

8

Time it was
And what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences

Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They’re all that’s left you.

Bookends, by Simon and Garfunkel

**********

From The Time of the Doctor to Hell Bent, the Doctor’s memories were fuzzy when initially greeting Clara, and then once more when he encountered her in the diner. This bookends their relationship perfectly.

i still think about this scene from the end of Last Christmas like 407 times an hour…

after the emotionally debilitating finale that was Death in Heaven where NOBODY got a happy ending, the xmas special had Santa formulate a scenario involving brain-consuming facehuggers inducing a shared dream world just to get clara and the doctor back together - and then they literally ELOPE at the end

i’ll be thankful for this gift of an episode until my dying day

Moffat appreciation, Day 5

For Day 5 of the ongoing countdown to Steven Moffat Appreciation Day we’re being asked for our thoughts on Series 8. Otherwise known as the season where Doctor Who was finally allowed to act like a grown-up. And not everyone liked it. But I loved it. (More after the break as this is a long one.)

“And there’s that smile again. I don’t even know how you do that.” He’s too adorable; they both were in that scene! :)

The most amusing part of the 2nd anniversary of Time Heist

Watching the twitters as they commemorate the second anniversary of the episode Time Heist, it’s great to see people react to the “infamous” Empire magazine promo shoot that was shot featuring Jenna wearing her Time Heist suit.

You know, the one with this photo:

A few questioned whether this was real and not an edit. But it was real!

Maybe it’s just as well they don’t know about the Entertainment Weekly photo shoot then:

Oh yeah, they weren’t promoting any sort of romance between the two at all.

Some photos I took at Gallifrey One this past weekend. I got less than 20 on my camera because it was acting up badly. Need to get a new one, but the few I got were really great. Out of the entire convention, I adored meeting this Twelfth Doctor cosplayer. He was extremely sweet, channeling Peter Capaldi a lot, and someone I enjoyed chatting with about Doctor Who. The first time I met him was as Series 8 standard attire on Saturday. I HATE the way I photograph, and will rarely show myself online, but since I came out looking pretty decent with him, I’ll share here. ;)
