Four tends to be known as the “loveable” Classic Doctor, but really they’re quite the asshole. If anyone was loveable, it was Two.

The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular will begin its very first UK tour this weekend!

The live show features music written for Doctor Who by Murray Gold, performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the BBC National Chorus of Wales. The orchestra will be conducted by Ben Foster and hosted by Fifth Doctor Peter Davison.

The show will enjoy a limited run of 13 performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.

Ticket information is available here.

If you reblog this, I will put your URL in a jar, and spread them around the world (I have friends that are travelling to places from Japan to Barcelona to Norway to London) . So you may find a URL in a public bathroom or a museum, and then you can message that person and become best friends with them and YAY!

you have to the 2nd July!

The 9th Doctor
  • I used to really not like 9.  Tennant was my Doctor. I gravitated toward his emotional openness and (for the most part) level headedness.  But I’m really coming to appreciate 9.

    He hid people’s insecurities.

    At the end of “World War Three”, he hid Micky’s fear of traveling in the Tardis (and the accompanying dangers) by pretending he didn’t want to take Micky with them. “I won’t have him. He’s a liability” and declaring his hate of “domestics” [family drama] .

    In “The Long Game” he fed Rose information about where they landed, so that she could show off for her new friend Adam.  Adam was a self titled Genius and the Doctor is a Time Lord.  Both are considerably smarter than Rose.  But in this moment, Nine allows Rose to feel knowledgeable.

    In “The Doctor Dances” he asks “What do you expect in a Chula Medical Transport?”
    Rose: I dont know.
    Nine: Yes you do *He gestures to his hands*
    Rose: Nanogenes!

    He lets her figure it out and teaches her that she knows more than she realizes. To a girl who didn’t go to college and worked in a shop, feeling that educated would be a huge ego boost.

    And the reason he does this? He hates to admit his own insecurities. In “The Doctor Dances” he is reluctant to admit that his sonic item is not a blaster or a cannon but a mere screw driver.  

    Fresh from the Time war, he has made a decision he feels inadequate to have made.  He feels guilty that he killed his own planet. Who is he in the grand scheme of things? Of course, he is the Doctor (our hero) but to Nine, during  this year, he sees himself as a nobody. And the entire season he hopes to make everyone else feel like they matter.

    In Father’s Day, the bride says “I know we’re not important.”
    And the Doctor asks, “Who said you’re not important? I’ve never had a life like [yours].”

    Making the most insignificant person feel important. Making them feel braver, smarter, tougher than they are.  

    This is the True Magic of Nine.
Lets take a break, and take a trip to some different lands... Turn your volume on, select a world and click the link

Harry Potter

Griffindor Common Room - You’re sitting in a comfortable chair in front of the fireplace in the Gryffindor common room as the evening wind swirls against the windows. You’ve got a book to read and a cup of tea that you’ve charmed to stay warm and stir itself on occasion, and even though you have some homework left to do, you feel very much at ease >

Slytherin Common RoomYou are a 5th year at Hogwarts and you’re sitting in the Slytherin Common Room trying to stay awake and study but you’ve never been a very studious person so your eyelids are getting heavy and you find yourself falling asleep in a brown recliner while two other Slytherins are able to stay awake with the aid of coffee. There aren’t any windows for you to see outside, but since the common room is submerged under the lake you can faintly hear the sound of water just on the other side of the walls. >

Ravenclaw Common Room - It’s exam season, and you’re cramming for your NEWTs. The common room is full of Ravenclaws, wide-eyed and caffeinated. Pull up a chair, grab your charms homework and get studying! >

Hufflepuff Common Room - You’re sitting in one of the comfy chairs in front of the wooden fireplace carved with badgers, someone’s cat (You’ve named it fluffball) sitting beside you. The kitchens are in full force and in full raid by students. Occasionally you can hear someone’s footsteps by the windows, but you’re took focused on your charms homework. You’re a Hufflepuff and proud, and what would you be if not hardworking?

Game of Thrones

High garden Party “At Highgarden we have many spiders amongst the flowers. So long as they keep to themselves we let them spin their little webs, but if they get underfoot we step on them.” >

Dinner in Winterfell - It’s been a long day of battle, you want warmth and the comfort of food, drink and conversation. The fire is roaring, fighting the chill of the cold castle walls. >

The Wall - "…It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.” >

Kings Landing - The busy capital of Westeros welcomes you. You walk amongst rich and poor alike, people selling their wares as they are bartered for them, knights try out their new swords whilst their squires tend to the horses. Someone somewhere a harp is played. >

Doctor Who

Inside the Tardis -  The doctor has invited you to take a trip with him in the Tardis, the world’s most famous blue police box!Don’t be fooled by the sounds of the engine in the background, the Tardis is way more than “just a machine”! >

Run from Weeping Angels - As long as you see them, they can’t hurt you. Don’t turn around! Don’t blink! Or they’ll get you! Where is the Doctor when you need him the most?>

Lord of The Rings

Bilbo Baggins’ HomeWe are in the Shire,  at the Home of Bilbo Baggins. Fire is burning and light rain outside whilst he offers you tea, bread and cheese. >

The Prancing Pony - after a long day of travel you and your company retire to the Prancing Pony to fill your bellies and warm your feet. >

Mines of MoriaAfter the fall of Moria, nobody know, why its happen. But few dwarves talking about Bane of Durin. When Fellowship enter the mines, they still do not know, that they will meet Dane of Durin face to face.… >

The BattleForth! Down fear of darkness! Arise! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day…! A red day…! And the sun rises! Ride now! Ride now! Ride! Ride for ruin and the world’s ending! Death! Death! Death!!! >

Woodland RealmCompany enter the woods of Elvenking - Mirkwood. Many stories were tell about this forest - enchanted water, strange animals and tricks of wood elves are some of them. Elves are good and helpfull, but between dwarves from Lonely Mountain and Elvenking is hostility, which can destroy all hopes for Thorin, his friends and people from Laketown. >


Riding with the Winchesters - Dozing in the backseat of the Impala on the way to a little town in Indiana where a woman was found missing a heart on the night of the full moon, you hear the sound of the Winchester’s trying not to wake you during the long drive. Sam is diligently working the case file as Dean keeps his eyes on the road. Hang tight, it’ll be a while before they stop for a re-fuel.

Hunting with the WinchestersYou made a deal 10 years ago and now the Winchesters are here to save you! They have saved you twice tonight but not you’ve lost them in the dark woods. You run for your life as you hear the hounds approaching

Cheap Motel Room Eventually, you reach a one-stoplight town and settle in for the night. The AC is broken, so the window is opened. You can smell the wet gravel outside, and warm summer-night air bleeds into the room, carrying with it sounds of the highway. >–room

Sleeping Next to Dean - Quiet enough that you can curl up with your pillow and sleep warm in Dean’s arms on a rainy night. He’s definitely a cuddler. >

Research with the Boys - Instead of thinking of that pesky history assignment as an essay, pretend you’re in a motel room with the Winchesters researching for a big case. Noises include keyboard typing and mouse clicks, writing on paper, random chair creaks, white noise, and the sound of a knife sharpening for good measure. (Because we all know Dean’s a little obsessed with keeping his weapons in top shape)


221b Baker Street - You’re welcome into the home of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. John is typing up.. whatever it is he types up whilst Sherlock is stood at the window playing his violin. >


Loki’s Chambers - Loki takes some time for himself in his chambers, disregarding the outside world for a while in favor of literature. He studies and relaxes with only the company of his books. For once he almost could feel at peace, at least until Thor barges in, but for now the lyrical silence of Asgard is the only sound he hears

Stark and Banner Lab Because in Avengers tower, Tony and Bruce’s lab is the quietest place around. You sit in your comfy armchair in the corner of the lab and relax with your book, occasionally hearing Bruce scribble something and Tony sigh because 2048 is tricky—banner-lab

Mad Hatter’s Tea PartyYou’re invited to join the tea party.. we’re all mad here

Abandoned Spaceship - you’ve found an abandoned spaceship, only, there’s something here. You can hear them. You can feel them. Find them. >

Gypsy CampGypsy camp, settling in for the night somewhere in the woods. Campfires, music, general frivolity. >
