That’s our main question, ya’ll. That’s what we want to answer.
Who is this guy?
And HOW DID HE BECOME PRIME MINISTER? HOW DID HE DEFEAT PM HARRIET JONES (yes we know who she is) FOR THE JOB? (COULD IT BE MORE THAN JUST MISOGYNY? HOW CAN WE KNOW FOR SURE?)
Was he a robot? A government experiment? AN ALIEN?
DID HE HAVE A ZIP IN HIS FOREHEAD?

The Sunday Mirror called him a “modern Churchhill” but what do we know about him? We know more about his wife than we do him! Oh, we know what we were told, about how he went to Cambridge University, Rugby blue. How he won something to do with athletics. How he wrote a novel, how he became a successful businessman, how he got married. A whole life.

Characters: Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler, Pete Tyler, Mickey Smith, Martha Jones, Donna Noble Notes: This story was inspired by a number of things — namely badwolfrun trying to keep me entertained at work by sending me this ask, which became this graphic and this graphic made by MK, and subsequent discussions with MK and perfectlyrose.

snapped up as the time rotor ground to a halt. “It’s stopped,”
she said unnecessarily.
“What do you mean?” Donna demanded.
“Is that a good or bad? Where are we?”
“The Medusa Cascade,” Rose
murmured, examining the screen. It was beautiful. Donna didn’t care
much about that though.
“So, where are the twenty-seven
“Nowhere,” Rose said flatly. “The
Tandocca Trail stops dead. End of the line.”
“So what do we do?” Rose didn’t
answer. “No, what do we do?” Donna watched, horrified, as Rose
simply backed away from the scanner, expression going blank. “Now
don’t do this to me. No, don’t. Don’t do this to me. Not now. Tell
me, what are we going do? You never give up. Please!”
if the main reason rtd put mickey and martha together is because he wanted a smith and jones joke, imagine what other pairings he could have picked ianto and mickey sarah jane and martha evelyn smythe who would have been annoyed because it’s not even pronounced smith, damn it mickey and tish sarah jane and harriet jones, former prime minister
