the doctor who project

Hello and welcome to the “Thank You, Peter Capaldi” fan video project! “The what?” you ask? I’m glad you did!

Basically, I wanted to find a way to thank Peter Capaldi for the amazing time that he’s given us as the 12th Doctor. I know I’m not the only one who’s sad he’s leaving and thought that this could be a great way to (hopefully!) show him how much he and his Doctor has meant to the fans of the show and how much he’ll always be loved.

More detailed information can be found here about how to participate, but here’s the basic rundown:

The finished project will be a video compilation of fans thanking Peter for being a part of Doctor Who to be released on August 4th, 2017- the anniversary of the day he was announced as the next Doctor!

There’s basically 2 options for how to participate in this project!

Option 1: A short video (ideally 15-30 seconds long or shorter) of you talking about the 12th Doctor and/or Peter Capaldi himself- why you love him, what he’s taught you, your favorite memories of his time on the show, and so on. 

Option 2: A picture of yourself with a sign (or something else that’d be appropriate) that says “Thank You Peter” or a similar sentiment. I know not everyone likes talking on camera so I thought this would be a good option to include as well! 

The deadline for videos and photos will be July 28th, 2017. This will allow for anyone who wishes to wait until series 10 has aired before creating their video or photo.

I’m really hoping that this idea will take off and that with the help of all the other Whovians who have come to know and love the 12th Doctor, I’ll be able to put together a really awesome thank you for Peter Capaldi.

Please feel free to share this post and repost the photo at the top of the post wherever (with all the information on it intact, of course) so that more people can learn about it!

Doctor Who: Billie Piper says it's time to cast a woman - BBC News
Former Doctor Who star Billie Piper says it would be "a snub" if the role did not go to a woman.

Piper, who played companion Rose Tyler, said it would “feel like a snub” if the role didn’t go to a woman.

“I’ve always supported the original format but I don’t know where they can go from here,” she told the BBC.

“I think it would be great [to have a female Doctor] given the spirit of the world at the moment. I think it would be timely”.

Know of a woman who played tabletop RPGs in the ‘70s or ‘80s?

I’m a doctoral student doing an historical research project on women who played tabletop roleplaying games (Dungeons and Dragons, for instance) in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Do you know of anyone I could interview? If so, send them my way! The interviews can take place in person or over Skype. If you’re eligible and interested (or know someone who might be), send me a private message on Tumblr. Make sure that the message has the best way to contact you outside of Tumblr (email or phone).

The “Thank You Peter Capaldi” fan video project needs your help! Watch this video to find out more or see the original post here!

Whenever a Muslim man spills vitriol about how Muslim women shouldn’t leave the house “unnecessarily”, I want to talk about Muslim women who fought in battle, women entrepreneurs and business owners, women who have made great leaps in science and medicine, jobs that need to be filled by women to provide for other women (doctors, nurses), women who have started charitable organisation, community projects, support groups, political uprisings, entire revolutions.

These women should be celebrated and honoured but the questions still hangs; why do we need to invoke their names? Muslim men are never required to cite the accomplishments of male Muslim scientists and businessmen to justify their autonomy to Muslim women. 

The burden of proving excellence in order to justify a basic human right is one that is always placed on the marginalised. And as such the labour falls to Muslim women to cite hadiths and analyse Quranic verses in the historical and social context of 7th century Arabia in order to rationalise said right.

We have the right to live. We have the right to leave our houses. Whether it’s to discover the gravitational waves in the fabric of space and time or to go to the shop for a pint of milk, we have the right.
