my first and favourite doctor

doomed to be unfinished: tv shows [3/5] → doctor who 

Do you wanna come with me? ‘Cause if you do then I should warn you — you’re gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past, aliens from the future, the day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe, and it won’t be calm. But I’ll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime.

One day, I hope I’ll be able to write exposition half as good as this…

Every room resets. Remember I told you that? Every room reverts to its original condition. Logically, the teleporter should do the same. Teleporter. Fancy word. Just like 3D printers, really, except they break down living matter and information, and transmit it. All you have to do is add energy. The room has reset, returned to its original condition when I arrived. That means there’s a copy of me still in the hard drive. Me, exactly as I was, when I first got here, seven thousand years ago. All I have to find is some energy. And all you need for energy is something to burn.

How long can I keep doing this, Clara? Burning the old me, to make a new one?

Heaven Sent, my favourite Capaldi Era episode as requested by @lullapiee​.

Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is, in fact, deep blue. And over there: lighter blue. And blowing through the blueness and the blackness and the winds, swirling through the air and then shining, burning, bursting through: the stars!

River Song Appreciation Week

Day 4 - Favourite Relationship: River & the Doctor

↳ sweet·ie: (noun) [Informal] Sweetheart : A person you love very much —used to address someone you love. An adoring pet name to call your lover.

The Doctor could have said anything definitive in order to clear up the confusion between them—but he didn’t. Instead, he watched in horror as she poured her heart out to a robot, and a criminal waiter, claiming that he never loved her. That’s when it came to him. The perfect words to say. Not just to convince her of who he was, but of who she was to him. It was a genuine epiphany. So the Doctor, in the TARDIS, the 2,000+ year-old runaway Timelord, clearly and unabashedly addresses her with the two words that have always been a testament of her love, and now, his.

Rose Tyler Appreciation Week: Day Two

↳Favourite Episode (½): Rose

Rose Tyler: The Valiant Child, Defender of the Earth, by Silhouette

I’ve been meaning to get some shots of all my Rose outfits for a while now, and since I had the house to myself today, I did just that! Some pieces here are screen-accurate, some are colour alts that I dyed, and others are just alts that I liked. 

And I left my “End of Time” scarf at school. So it’s missing there. :P 

Gomez!Master - 'Dark Water' and Character Analysis

So. This will be under Read More and very detailed. I’d appreciate if you’d read my opinion on Missy, but I will probably steel a lot of your time, because I made an transcript of her entire speech in ‘Dark Water’. 

Now let’s get started

And for all those things following until stated otherwise. Please step back and take out the gender. Just do it. 

First thing I need to do is to look at the general behaviour and appearance of this character. 
Fun thing is that I wrote that already after Deep Breath had aired. HERE

Generally I see her as fitting. But also I see the people’s problems with Mof choosing someone very much fitting his views on dominating women. The closeness to Irene Adler portrayed by Lara Pulver is obvious. And there you have it. That’s the criticism of Moffat not the character itself. 
The clothes should be different though, because as we know the Master does have a clear preference for suits and would obviously choose one. Not a dress. This is a thing they could fix very easily, the question is if they will 

Her behaviour and Gomez’s acting are theatrical and melodramatic. (don’t tell me she’s a bad actress because she’s not. She does that on purpose)
She has strong expressive language with a lot of cooing and coldness in quick switches. She is polite and her death threads spoken casual because she really believes the human race are insects and the cause of her being left behind. Also if you go back now and look at her voice there is such an aggressive and mocking overtone to it as much as it is to her entire speech. (more to that later). 
Her entire behaviour is very superior to the Doctor’s. There is a certain sharpness to her moves and how she blantly moves into his personal space to make him uncomfortable. Yes even that kiss. 


That kiss is one of the things I do not like about this, but mainly because it is toying with the fans and because it was in no way something to make Doctor/Master canon. NO JUST NO. It was oppressing, without any response and consent, an complete expression of superiority and possesiveness. 

And there you have it. Gomez!Master is extremely pissed off and possessive over the Doctor. She is mocking him to no end. The way she talks to him is not romantic or loving. It borderlines on an abusive partner to be honest.

Clara asked Danny on a date.

She didn’t profess her eternal love.

Clara is completely unattached and hasn’t been in a romantic relationship in all the time we’ve known her.

And here she dares to take initiative an asks out a man she lies immediately and finds attractive - who she can assume she shares interests with, because he’s a teacher as well.

Nothing more, nothing less.

We even get to see the moment of hesitation, in which she works up the nerve to do that.

If you hate on Clara for this, this might be the time to ask yourself what the fuck you are doing.
