so i am the doctor

I said fuck off (a bit overreaction i admit) because you are apologising racism and homophobia! Steven Moffat is being racist and homophobic by killing off the black lesbian. That's a fact. Are you REALLY trying to say a white man doing an act like that (killing the said black lesbian) isn't homophobic and racist? That's just abysmal! I like you and your blog, but you are so in the wrong here, Moffat is dreadful!

Okay so firstly? That ‘said black lesbian’ has a name, and it’s Bill Potts. So, in the future, it might be a good idea for you to use it, especially when you’re trying to advocate against homophobia.

Secondly, Bill Potts isn’t dead, has never been dead, and certainly won’t be dead come next week. It’s not happening. And if I’m wrong, then by all means, feel free to gloat forevermore in my ask box. 

Until then, forgive me for continuing to keep up celebrating Steven Moffat for the wonderful stories and repesentation he’s given us over his years as showrunner. It’s a heck of lot more positive for minorities than anything RTD ever gave us.

BILL’S DATE GETS CRASHED BY THE POPE

9

I see my face all the time. I’ve never liked it, it’s all over the place. It’s always doing expressions when I’m trying to be enigmatic.

Literally apart from that weird and unnecessary fat-shaming comment at the start of the episode I am so impressed? I feel like this is the Doctor Who I used to love. Bill already feels like a real person with real emotions and a backstory that we’re going to explore. We have the companion’s POV instead of the Doctor’s POV, which seems to work way better. Bill is ALREADY calling the Doctor out and making him a better person with the added bonus that although she respects him, she’s not fawning over him like he’s a god or something and there’s no danger of him becoming her romantic fixation and making everything she does about him. Also this is probably a small thing but Bill dresses like a normal young person and looks like a normal young person. She’s really relatable (a lot like Rose was back in the day) and I think that’s going to allow a lot of people to get on board with this show. Oh, and one last note, the dynamic between Twelve and Bill is really good and healthy and they already feel like a team. There are definitely Donna and Ten vibes as far as the whole Bill demanding respect thing and I love it.

Why was it so hard for Ten to move on after Doomsday?

Oh my dear, sweet Nonny…

Because, when you look at someone like this…

or like this…

When you look at each other like…

Or especially

When you hug like this…

And that…

And when you’ve decided…

How do you get over that?

You know…it always made me sad how nuWho Doctors treated the companion who came after “their” companion. Ten was so hung up on Rose that he completely overlooked how sharp, kind, and devoted Martha was. Eleven was so bitter everything that happened with the Ponds that he became less trusting and questioned Clara at every turn, when she was only ever just a regular young woman. They both deserved better than what Ten and Eleven gave them. They were bright, brave individuals in their own rights who deserved to be treated as such, but Ten and Eleven never really saw them as their own people—as a friend, as a fellow traveler.

And then there’s my Twelvey. Twelve, whose older and less charming traits were embraced because Clara knew him so well and loved him so much. Twelve, who was so intensely close with and similar to Clara that he had to remove himself from her in order to keep the universe safe. There will never be a pair quite like them again. I couldn’t blame him if he couldn’t bring himself to make a new friend. 

Instead of retreating into himself and refusing to let another young human into his life, he…did the opposite. He noticed a young woman who is clever, who loves to learn, and he wanted to meet her. He took it upon himself to teach her, because she can’t afford to attend the university. He went out of his way to get to know her, to learn her story, and to give her a glimpse at her late mother, because it mattered to her. He acted so very much like a Doctor. Like the Doctor Clara deserved when she first met Eleven. Like the Doctor Bill deserves now. 

Clara must be so proud to call that guy her Doctor. I know I am.
