Get lost in beauty of the cosmos as you gaze into the out of this world formation of the polished meteorite sphere. Discovered as a mass by Russian geologist F.A. Mednikov in 1967, each limited edition specimen is a testament to the majesty of our universe.
Behind the Scenes of The Waters of Mars (Part Two)
Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s interview with Lindsay Duncan in DWM 415:
“Loads of energy,” bellows Graeme [Harper, director], as the cast and crew gear up for another take. “Let’s kick it up the bottom - really fast and pacey, c’mon! It’s a lovely, chaotic moment.” He turns to William Hartley, the First Assistant Director. “It’s like being in a circus, isn’t it?”
“What does that make you, then?” chips in Russell T. Davies, Doctor Who showrunner and - with Phil Ford - the writer of this episode. “The lion tamer?”
“I’d like to start over there,” explains Graeme, “and pull focus, so you’ve got the Doctor as a loose, lonely figure, watching on…”
“Is that when I get changed?” teases David, removing his helmet. “Is that when I slip into something more comfortable? I left my space shoes by the door! Sorry about the helmet hair,” he adds.
“Wear it like that out,” suggests Russell. “You’ll start a trend.”

On the topic of self dx, my mom is not diagnosed with anything, and knowing her, and considering she is in her 40s, I don’t think she’s ever going to seek a diagnosis.
The reason isn’t that she isn’t mentally ill.
The reason is that she never felt like it mattered, because of how she was abused. The reason is that the one time she did seek diagnosis, she was obviously misdiagnosed by someone who didn’t know what they were doing. The reason is because if her abusive psychiatrist mother thought she was fine then she must have been right?
This doesn’t mean she isn’t extremely mentally ill, this doesn’t mean she hasn’t struggled her whole life, it doesn’t mean she hasn’t constantly ended up in very dangerous relationships because of her symptoms, and it doesn’t mean she hasn’t been called a “crazy psycho” by abusers, with raised voices, in front of her only child.
So honestly fuck off with the idea that you don’t count if you don’t have an official diagnosis. My mom counts, you count, the teenager on the Internet that’s been told they’re lying counts.
Official diagnoses aren’t easy to get for everyone, and there are countless reasons it might be impossible.
