Doctor Who is no longer my fave TV show and you have no idea how sad that makes me

"Smith tried pretty much everything. Playful, petulant, shouty, giddy, mopey, nasty, lachrymose … he put it all out there, but with nothing really at stake, it was like watching a workshop at the Actor’s Studio or something. And his even his considerable charms couldn’t smooth over his character’s jaw-dropping sexist comments, leering at women, and non-consensual kissing—culminating in the groaningly poor regeneration episode “The Time of the Doctor,” in which he essentially planted one on the Pope. Now, he apparently had had a relationship with her, but that’s also a problem: Yet another powerful woman turns to putty in the Doctor’s hands? Again, bad fanfic."

The Atlantic: “How Doctor Who Betrayed Matt Smith”

I just reblogged this article but, ugh, this needed it’s own post. It is bad fanfic. It’s embarrassing, in a way, and infuriating in every other. I don’t care who you are, writing a franchise is not about you, it’s about the integrity of that property and what you bring to it.

I think Moffat needs to just step away from Who, he’s kind of ruined it.

So I’m reading a Doctor Who book, Only Human. And Jack is in it. They were in a situation and needed a distraction so:


and I was just like “Oh you

and then


of course. buT THEN THIS






So the 12th Doctor’s official outfit has been chosen and um

I think people need to stop

"In terms of the companions all being ‘the same’ — that’s not as phony or artistically crap a thing to say as it sounds. What is the base group of people who would run away with the Doctor? They’re all going to be a bit mad. A bit dislocated. Not happy with where they are. Are they yearning for outer space? They’re going to be people who feel like they can take on the Doctor, who’s quite an intimidating sort of person. So, they’re going to be feisty — they’re going to be all those things. He sort of defines the people who are going to travel with him. The distinction comes very much from the various actors and actresses. So, you know, they’re the ones who create the differences between them."

“Rose is open, honest, heartfelt, to the point of being selfish, wonderfully selfish. Martha is clever, calm, but rarely says what she’s really thinking. Donna is blunt, precise, unfiltered, but with a big heart beneath all the banter. But we come back to what I was saying ages ago about turning characters. If Rose can be selfish, then her finest moments will come when she’s selfless. If Martha keeps quiet, then her moments of revelation - like her goodbye to the Doctor in Last of the Time Lords, or stuck with Milo and Cheen in Gridlock - make her fly. Donna is magnificently self-centred - not selfish, but she pivots everything around herself, as we all do — so when she opens up and hears the Ood song, or begs for Caecilius’ family to be saved, then she’s wonderful.”

Even though I’d already finished all my Christmas cards, I was so excited for the 50th Anniversary and rewatching old who (The Five Doctors), that when this idea popped up…I couldn’t say no. Especially when 10’s lyric was ‘leaping’.

So, enjoy, one last geeky Who card from me, the Twelve Doctors of Christmas.

(For anyone wondering, my favourites in this pic are Two and Three…and Ten.)

(See the other cards here)

Twelve’s debut drumming.


doctor who meme revamp | six companions (2/6) | Martha Jones

I spent a lot of time with you thinking I was second best, but do you know what? I am good.


"…every six months."




#My FAVOURITE thing is when companions get together and bash on the Doctor #it’s literally the best thing ever #And I bet there was a lot of teasing in Journey’s End that we missed between scenes #Like after they pulled Earth back#They all just floated around the Vortex for a little while #Just catching up and chatting #And Martha and Rose got to bond and Martha felt better about her year with the Doctor after talking to Rose #Rose would have totally apologized over his behaviour and then of course they would have started teasing him #”Did he just… lick everything he came across when he was travelling with you?” #”YES! YES! The first time I saw him do it he had just regenerated and then he licked BLOOD. BLOOD. Even I know that’s not sanitary. #And then he went and got his arm chopped off and it just REGREW. I swear that day was just one of the strangest adventures.” #And then of course Donna pops in after hearing about the cut off hand like #”Well it’s a good thing that Dumbo there is so bad with a sword or else we’d have all been in trouble back then. #Though let me tell you I have some hilarious stories about him and an trip to see Agatha Christie…” #And then Jack shows up with his own little sidestory about when the Doctor was in jail and he and Rose had to go get him #And Jack had to flirt his way through the guards #but before he can finish the Doctors (both of them) show up and go STOP IT JACK #Oh man you guys the scenes we could have missed #SHENANIGANS ON THE TARDIS
