Weeping Angels ~David Tennant/Tenth Doctor Imagine~
Hello humans! So I started watching Doctor Who about 2 weeks ago and I’m addicted, so I thought I would do a tenth doctor imagine! It’s not that great, but I hope you like it! :)
*Not My Gif*
I slowly walked into kitchen, trying not to run into anything. I had recently moved into a new flat and every time I went to get a glass of water or snack at midnight, I always managed to stub my toe on something. When I reached the cabinet, I pulled out a glass and poured some water into it. I took a sip as I stared out the kitchen window. The alley out back was filled with trash and rain puddles. As I stared, I noticed something I had never noticed before. A grey statue towards the back of the alley. The statue looked like a angel that was crying. Although I had never seen it in the alley before, I had definitely seen it somewhere else earlier that day. I shook it off and looked away. I started to open the fridge for a snack, when it suddenly slammed close. Before I could react, I felt two arms wrap around my torso and pull me back. I started to scream, but was muted by a hand covering my mouth. The glass fell out of my hand and shattered on the floor in front of me. “Shhh I’m not going to hurt you…listen Y/N don’t blink! That isn’t just a statue, it’s a weeping angel. If you blink you’re dead. Don’t blink!” A male voice said. My head was racing with a million different thoughts. How did he know my name? What the hell was a weeping angel? Why can’t I blink? And how the hell did he get into my flat?! I looked forward and the statue that was once in the alley, was now standing in front of me. It’s head was up and it’s eyes were stuck on me. I started to breath rapidly as I stared at it. What the hell was going on? “Don’t look away from it Y/N. Don’t blink.” He spoke again. I stared at the statue and tried not to run away from both the statue and the man. He held me close to him as he started backing up slowly. “Follow me.” He said as he let me go. My knees were weak from panic, so I ended up accidentally falling to my knees as my right hand hit the shattered glass. I felt the pain, but ignored it as I realized I had taken my eyes off the statue. I slowly looked up and the statue was now it my face with its arms out like it was going to grab me. I quickly stood up and backed away. I felt the guy grab my hand and pull me into a blue box. The door quickly shut as he ran towards a control panel. I stood up in shock and looked at my surroundings. How was this possible? It was… bigger on the inside. The room had a huge control panel looking thing in the middle and a yellow tint to it. Suddenly, everything started moving as if there was an earthquake happening. The movement knocked me to the floor of the strange room. I looked up to see the guy holding onto one of the levers on the panel. Once the shaking stopped, the guy turned to me and smiled brightly. “Cute pajamas.” He said. “Who are you?” I automatically replied. “I’m the doctor.” He said proudly. “What is this? Why is it bigger on the inside?” I asked. “This is the tardis, it’s my spaceship. I’m a time lord, last of them actually.” He said. “Yeah…” I said as I studied his features. His hair was brown and stuck up in the front. He wore a brown suit with white converse. He was an overall attractive guy, but he must of been crazy. A time lord? Really? “Really, I could take you anywhere. Past or present.” He said. He didn’t look like he was crazy, he looked completely serious about what he was saying. “Let’s say I did believe you, how did you get into my flat? And how did you know that was going to happen to me?” I questioned. “I told you, I’m a time lord. I saw it happen in the future. It’s a long story really. My tardis accidentally landed in your kitchen, which is how I got into your flat.” He explained. I nodded as he explained. Did I actually believe him? “Oh, you got a nasty cut on your hand there.” He said as he walked over to me. I looked at my hand and noticed the gash in it. “Oh, I didn’t even realize…” I said, trailing off. He stood in front of me and held his hand out to help me up. I grabbed his hand and stood up, smiling slightly at him. “Let’s get that cleaned up.” He said sweetly. He grabbed my wrist and pulled me towards the seat next to the control panel. I sat down as he pulled out a pair of glasses from his coat and put them on. I looked at him, then looked down as my cheeks turned red. He definitely looked adorable wearing glasses. He pulled out a handkerchief from his pocket and dabbed the wound slightly as I tried to not winch in pain. Then he tied the handkerchief around my hand to stop the bleeding. “Better?” He asked looking at me with a smile. I smiled and nodded. “So what happens now?” I questioned. “Well, I made the weeping angels look at each other, so they won’t be trying to hurt you any more. I would definitely recommend moving somewhere else though. Weeping angels aren’t exactly the best decor.” He said, laughing a bit. I smiled and laughed a bit too. “Unless…” He started to say. “Unless?” I questioned. “You want to come with me..” He suggested. I was shocked by his offer. “Go traveling with a stranger?” I questioned aloud. “It’s time traveling and I did just save your life.” He said as he laughed. I thought about it. He did make a good point. I smiled and looked up at him. “Okay.” I simply said. “Really?” He asked with a smile. I smiled and nodded. “If I can pick where we go.” I added. “Anywhere you’d like.” He said with a cheeky smile.
“Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death.”
He takes the job at Downton Abbey (thanking whoever’s listening for his interest in vintage cars back in the 21st century), and he thinks he’ll stay a year or two at most. Get some money and try and figure out where the hell he can even begin to look for answers.
Sometimes when he starts to think he might be mad, he takes out his long dead cell phone and the photo he had in his pocket when it happened. He looks at the small window to the future, to his old life, until he remembers he’s sane and it’s the world that turned out to be far stranger than he ever knew.
When the War starts, Tom Branson still has 76 years left until he’s going to be born.
He knows he can’t be the only one to have encountered the Angels. The only one thrown into the past. He wants to find the others, and find a way home.
The problem with the plan arises when he meets Lady Sybil Crawley.
When he hands her the pamphlets (he knows votes for women are inevitable with more certainty than she’ll ever realise).
When his heart jumps into his throat and he can’t sleep for fear she might be hurt worse than early 20th century medicine can handle.
When Gwen shrieks with joy and he feels their hands come together.
And for the first time since he arrived, he realises living in the past might actually be when he wants to be.
Bendy:“We haven’t been here a week on the ask-blog, and already all sorts of weird things are happening!”
Boris: “I think my initial inquiry has been answered…”
Alice: “If that’s an angel, then call me a monkey’s aunt!”
* Robert and the anon continue to flee from the pursuing statue, who is not willing to stop anytime soon. *
Bendy:“I think we need to go tell Joey and Henry about this immediately…”
Boris and Alice: “Ditto!”
“I’m not sure if that was what was intended, but I decided to make a joke on the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who because I thought it would work here. Though, I’m pretty sure the question referred to actual angels.”
“I mean, these ARE children’s cartoon characters that are receiving these asks.”
I went into “Class” fully expecting it to be cheesy (like DW was
when it was revived) and give in to all the typical plot lines of shows based
life as a teenager. Needless to say, this show did not do that (and I didn’t do
my research). This show hooked me in the very first ten minutes. It features
five teenagers (though one is an alien) and one of the teachers (the protector
of that alien). The cast is incredibly diverse and the show isn’t afraid to
portray the diverse nature of our world today while tackling difficult subjects.
Each episode was full of witty humor despite rather violent
scenes, a high body count, and the dark nature of the program. The relationship
that developed between the five teenagers was so great to watch as they dealt
with the invasion of different aliens who found their way through the thin
cracks of space and time at Coal Hill Academy. Each person struggles with
complex moral issues and emotional upheavals that are unfathomable for most
people, most especially for teenagers.
One of the more rewarding relationships to watch was the one
between Charlie (an alien whose entire race was killed by the Shadowkin) and
Matteusz. Matteusz is kicked out of his overly religious Polish parents’ house
for dating a boy (though not for being gay) and moves in with Charlie. Matteusz
is a pacifist and Charlie’s ongoing struggle to make the morally right decision
concerning the genocide of the alien race that killed his own is a contentious
point in their relationship. I suspect that Matteusz’s Polish background is
most of the reasoning behind his pacifism as his ancestors most likely lived
through the Holocaust. Both boys reflect some of The Doctor’s ongoing struggle
with trying to stay pacifist in the face of his own people’s genocide and the
difficult decision he made in regards to the Time War. Charlie and Matteusz’s
touching scenes show their relationship grow better and stronger until the
finale (which I won’t spoil), which leaves their relationship in limbo.
The friendships between each person is unique, but the one
between Tanya and Ram is one built on mutual respect, despite Tanya being three
years younger, and they remain close through the whole season. The one
relationship that really felt odd to me was the one between Ram and April. Ram
loses his girlfriend Rachel in the first episode and seeing her murder led to
Ram experiencing some PTSD symptoms from the incident. But just a week or so
after this incident, though he isn’t completely over Rachel, he and April
become close and end up having sex and beginning a relationship. Their
relationship felt rushed from the very beginning, as Ram tells her he loves her
quite early on and when she doesn’t reciprocate, he is angered. They were only
together for a month, and as April tells him from the beginning, she’s a
sensible person. I still don’t fully understand why they were together at all,
but it will be interesting to see where the show decides to go due to the
events in the finale concerning April.
I haven’t spoken much about Tanya or Miss Quill, so I’ll do a
brief here. Tanya is an incredibly smart 14-year-old who has skipped a couple
of grades because of this. Though she’s young, Tanya has some of the most
emotional scenes including seeing her father (due to an alien invasion) who had
died suddenly from a stroke two years before and seeing her mother murdered in
front of her. She showed true braveness and courage in the face of such
traumatic events. Miss Quill’s character was interesting in the fact that she
was wasn’t in control of her free will due to the events that tie her and
Charlie together. In committing a crime against Charlie’s people, she is forced
to become Charlie’s protector as well as the only surviving person of her
species when the Shadowkin also kill them. She doesn’t get a whole lot of
character development, but in the finale, she trains Tanya how to fight (though
that had some personal benefits) and saves Charlie (despite gaining her free
will back in a previous episode). The one episode that focuses on her wasn’t
overly exciting, but I think that’s because I was far more interested in the teenagers’
storylines than hers.
In the end, I would have loved to see more of Matteusz, his
character was ‘recurring,’ and I truly hope he’s added as a main cast member if
there is a second series. One final thought on the finale – I have always hated
the Weeping Angels as a species on Doctor Who, though oddly they almost never
killed anyone, and to see that they may have a large role in the second series
was not at all fun for me. However, the main cast itself will keep me psyched
for a new series as soon as possible.
I highly recommend “Class” and I will probably be reading some
fanfiction to satisfy the craving to see more.
You might have thought it disappeared into a crack in space and time, but today we’re excited to finally share pictures and details about the LEGO® Ideas 21304 Doctor Who!

River Song continues to not only be one of my favorite characters on Doctor Who, but my favorite arc/development that a character has seen under the writing of Steven Moffat. Though I love the idea and it was executed very well, I think sometimes with River’s timeline being presented as out of order/backwards masks some of the most heartbreaking and well done character development.
This woman is not just “The Woman Who Marries the Doctor.” Yes, she is that, but she is so much more and such a strong character. Born in the care of people who wanted the Doctor dead by any means possible, growing up under the influence (and possible torture) of the Silence, being shot at by her own Mother in an attempt to save the life of the man she’s been conditioned to hate, River overcame so much. Even after she regenerated in New York and continued to be conditioned by Madame Kavorian, River found and befriended her parents as children- though still believing that the Doctor was the cause of bad things in the universe.
She’s flirtatious, sure, but she’s also smart, resourceful, kind, curious, and loving. All traits that she at one time might not have believed herself to be capable of. She’s not defined by her marriage to the Doctor like many would like to believe. Yes of course her relationship with him is an enormous part of her life, but she’s independent. She chose to study archaeology at first to learn more about and find the Doctor again, but she comes to love it enough to continue on in her studies until she becomes a professor. She breaks out of prison on her own to take various trips. She takes the time to investigate various anomalies by herself- like Weeping Angels in New York. Though it’s not often shown directly on screen, River has many adventures of her own. She make the most of her life that she can, even if her ‘home’ for many years was a (supposedly inescapable) high-security prison.
Despite all of the bad things that happened to her in her life- torture, conditioning to become and assassin, being forced to murder the man she came to love after learning how compassionate he really was, prison, and the heartbreak of never knowing if her parents would know who she is- River didn’t want any of that rewritten. Even though all these bad things happened to her because of the Doctor and her parents, she still loves and cares for them- something that I find amazing and worth appreciating.
i never understood why people hate the idea that Eleven lies. He's definitely not the first, and i think it makes his character more unpredictable and interesting. Thoughts?
I think it’s a creative choice which people can rightfully dislike - there are plenty of reasons why having an untrustworthy protagonist might make someone uncomfortable, especially one in a show aimed at children. As such, I can understand why people might not be fond of that development (or regression) of the Doctor’s character, especially since most would have come to love the Doctor during the RTD era where the Doctor was a lot less prone to dishonesty. Moreover, the role this plays in the narrative might not appeal to anyone and what you find unpredictable and interesting others might consider tedious and plain cheating. That’s normal - we all have different preferences.
That being said, there are a couple of things which I think people should keep in mind when outright condemning this, rather than merely voicing their feelings on the matter.
1.) The Doctor isn’t an inherently trustworthy character. Moffat’s choice to portray the Doctor in that manner is build on plenty of previous material in which the Doctor can be manipulative and/or a liar. The First Doctor certainly fits that bill and from what I’ve heard the Seventh Doctor was quite notorious. Moffat is not twisting the Doctor into something he isn’t.
3.) The Eleventh Doctor hasn’t truly been rewarded for keeping the truth from his companions since the end of series 5… and even there the rewards were slim - namely possibly sparing more pain and suffering from Amy by not telling her about her parents’ and Rory’s fate and implementing the plan to fly the Pandorica into the TARDIS without giving much time to Amy and River to object. Both of these events happen in The Big Bang, notable the episode in which “the Doctor lies” was first established. And with it established, the choice to lie is repeatedly shown to be harmful and/or pointless:
