There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to see and fight pirates, she’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived, and save a whale in outer space. Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond.
doctor who meme: two quotes [1 of 2] → “The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.” — The Doctor
↳ gallifrey » “Ah, you should have seen it, that old planet. The second sun would rise in the south and the mountains would shine. The leaves on the trees were silver. When they caught the light every morning it looked like a forest on fire.”
“It just messes The Doctor up and makes him go, ‘Oh Christ, River’s here’, and it frightens him. And weirdly he’s going, 'Why the hell am I attracted to her? What’s that?’ That’s the woman who makes him go whoa.” [x]
“You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful, and then you actually talk to them, and five minutes later they’re dull as a brick. But then there’s other people, and you meet them and you think ‘not bad, they’re okay’, and then you get to know them, and their face sort of becomes them, like their personality’s written all over it, and they just they turn into something so beautiful…”
The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 2]
It seemed appropriate to post photos from David Tennant’s first episode on the day of Peter Capaldi’s first episode.
There are just sooooo many great behind-the-scenes photos from this special (even though the Doctor was unconscious for most of it)
Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article for DWM #365
[filming the first scene where the Doctor stumbles out of the TARDIS] David and Billie step into the TARDIS and close the door behind them. Standing outside in the rain, we can still hear their excited chatter. David: “I can’t believe this! I’m inside the TARDIS!” Billie: “Sorry, it’s a wee bit cramped in here.” Then we hear a girlish giggle. It’s David’s.
[filming the balcony/pilot fish scene] “You can write in Doctor Who Magazine,” says David, showing me the plastic imitation screwdriver that he’s been given, “that they don’t trust me with the real prop yet. Look,” he cries, “it’s a fake!”
[filming the swordfight] “Have you got padding on your arse?” Noel asks David. “No, it’s all mine,” he replies. “Do you think that’s the paparazzi?” Billie asks her co-stars, pointing at a speedboat on the water. “Maybe it’s the News of the World,” Noel shrugs. “Those boats have been circling all morning.” “I’m going to show them my arse!” declares David, standing up and promptly pulling down his pyjama bottoms, mooning out to sea. Unbeknownst to David, a make-up artist is standing right behind him. The poor lady gets quite the eyeful. “Oh jings,” gasps David, “I’m so sorry.” “It’s okay,” she stutters. “It’s nothing I haven’t seen before.”
