I just realized something… Rupert Graves plays Greg Lestrade in Sherlock. Mark Sheppard plays Crowley in Supernatural. They have both played in an episode(or two) of Doctor Who with Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor.
I think this is the closest we’ve gotten to SuperWhoLock.
Everyone knows I have great affection for the Twelfth Doctor but after ‘Oxygen’ no one can convince me otherwise that he is the most devoted incarnation of the Doctor.
Love is this Doctor’s superpower. When it boils down to the person he loves, he cannot stop until that person is drawing breath again. To him, love is a promise. A duty of care.
Twelve’s heart is so big. I cannot fathom the depths of it. He is contained on the outside but exploding on the inside.
I used to think it was just Clara he had a fondness for. But then he also showed River a lot of love. And with Bill, he gave her memories of her mother and took her under his wing. He gave her the love, guidance, and friendship of a parent. And then he saved her life by risking his own. And though he treats Nardole like crap, he does listen to him sometimes. Pretty sure it’ll be hell when this trio breaks up.
“…you’ll be wondering who I was.”
I keep wondering, Doctor. I keep wondering what you are and why you choose to be like this. We all need to be like you.
I don’t want Peter to go.
Edit: (1) Removed the cut (2) Added the title (3) Rewrote the sentence with ‘Nardole’ in it.
I kinda wish doctor who had taken a leaf out of its spin off ‘Class’. Because you know what’s better than announcing that “The new companion is the FIRST openly gay character”? Is being like “here’s this great, well thought out, interesting female character” and have her casually slip into conversation that she has a girlfriend back home. With Charlie and matteuz (from Class), he was like “imma ask the cute guy from physics to prom” and everyone was cool with it.
