Steven Moffat Appreciation Day 2017

In honour of Steven Moffat’s birthday, I’m reposting this gifset I posted earlier this year, as I feel it displays the true message of his era. The message, of course, is kindness.

David Tennant dressed as Doctors other than the Tenth Doctor

+ According to The Christmas Invasion commentary, the scarf David wears in the wardrobe room was knitted by producer Phil Collinson’s Great Auntie Cathy. DWM says she knitted the Doctor Who scarf when Phil was six. Phil expected it to be hung up at the side but instead David wore it.

  • what she says: I'm fine.
  • what she means: Were you not freaked out with Narnia too? They were literally in another dimension for 15 years, and came back not a minute later in this world. What if they died there? Could someone just throw their corpses back into the wardrobe and it's like nothing happened? If so, they could become ultimate rulers, never dying, always being revived and never aging more than a few minutes. What if they were killed by a knife, or other means of blood shed? Would the wound be null and void by closet standards? What if they were cremated, if someone threw handfuls of ash through the door, what would happen? Would there be dismembered body parts everywhere? And let's not forget to mention Lucy and the first time she went! She met that goat man and left for over 12 hours, if a few minutes constitutes as 15 years, how long is 12 HOURS?! Did this goat man know about the laws of time? Did he wait for years and years, knowing exactly when she'd get back, having tea ready? And if so, why does he not rule the land, he's obviously a genius! Unless he's a time lord, which would make a lot of sense! Is the wardrobe a tardis?! Narnia wasn't explained well enough, and it's really starting to take it's toll, I can't sleep.

The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 4]

Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365

David Tennant is getting his first peek inside the TARDIS wardrobe. It’s actually the TARDIS control room - here, as always, in a warehouse in Newport - redressed with racks of clothes, a whole load of accessories and some tailor’s mannequins. Oh, and a Doctor Who scarf that Phil Collinson’s gran knitted when he was six! It all looks fab.

“Lots of frocks, aren’t there?” says David, gazing around in delight.

Maybe the Doctor was once a transvestite?

“Yes, somewhere in between his Sixth and Seventh incarnations,” he deadpans, pointing at a mannequin in a bright pink shell suit. “Ooh, I like that. That’s what the Eleventh Doctor will wear!”

Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Tomorrow, David will record his ‘rifling through clothes and choosing his new costume’ scene, which is, for those in the know, a bit of a regeneration story tradition.
