Next time on an all-new Doctor Who, Bill is moving in with some friends and they’ve found the perfect house – so what if it’s strangely cheap to rent, and the landlord is a little creepy? The wind blows, the floorboards creak, and the Doctor thinks something is very wrong. What lurks in the strange tower at the heart of the building – and why can’t they find any way to enter it?

Human progress isn’t measured by industry. It’s measured by the value you place on a life. An unimportant life. A life without privilege. The boy who died on the river, that boy’s value is your value. That’s what defines an age, that’s what defines a species. ★t h i n i c e
The thing I loved most about “Thin Ice” (and I loved the whole episode) was that when Bill expressed concern for her safety in 19th Century London, The Doctor didn’t wave it off (the way Ten did to Martha). She wasn’t the only Black person there like she thought she’d be, but that didn’t automatically mean she’d be OK. In The Shakespeare Code, Ten pointed to the two Black women, and that was it, it was a non-issue. And don’t get me started on how she was treated Family of Blood… Twelve made it pretty clear he would not allow Bill to be treated like that.
If you’re not into Doctor Who or quit watching it, this season is a good time to start up (again). It’s a fresh start (you don’t need to have seen previous seasons to follow it) and so far it’s seriously good.
“When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it will never end. But however hard you try, you can’t run forever. Everybody knows that everybody dies, and nobody knows it like the Doctor. But I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark, if he ever, for one moment, accepts it. Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair, and the Doctor comes to call.”
