Daily Doux: 6 Fictional Prime Ministers

Francis Urquhart - House of Cards 

Murdered his way to Number 10, but still more popular than every real Tory Prime Minister since Churchill. 


Jim Hacker - Yes, Prime Minister 

As Prime Minister, Hacker regularly battled the true enemy of any elected official - the Civil Service. 


Harriet Jones - Doctor Who 

Everyone, even the Daleks, knows who she is. 


David - Love Actually

Danced around Number 10 to the Pointer Sisters, fell in love with his tea lady and stood up to the Americas. That last part being the most unrealistic part of the entire film. 


Michael Callow - Black Mirror 

Had sexual relations with a pig, something no British Prime Minister would ever do. Well, not while in office, that is.


Baldrick - Blackadder: Back & Forth 

At least he has a plan. 


The signs as Doctor Who characters

Aries: 10th Doctor

Taurus: Rory Williams

Gemini: Clara Oswald

Cancer: Harriet Jones, Prime Minister

Leo: 11th Doctor

Virgo: Madame Vastra

Libra: The TARDIS

Scorpio: River Song

Okay, basics

Who was Harold Saxon?

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?

WE JUST DON’T KNOW.

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.

BUT I DON’T BELIEVE IT AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU.

So, tell me, who was Harold Saxon?

Happy Sigh from the Front Row

I had the great pleasure and nearly unbelievable opportunity to go see David Tennant tonight, for free, as part of the Screen Actors Guild Conversations on Broadway series.  All credit and love must go to @fomagranfalloon, who told me about the event in the first place.  I was so excited, but kept thinking that something was going to fall through or that it was all a crazy dream…

In the front row. For two hours.

Below the cut is a collection of what I was able to remember on my subway ride home, but ask me questions to jog my memory!  I can probably remember more!

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. Enjoy!

CATCH UP: SEASON THREE || SEASON FOUR


Rose’s head 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 planets?”

“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!”

Rose didn’t answer. There was nothing to be done.

They’d lost.
