Sweater Vests Are Cool


Doctor Who tropes I’m tired of seeing:

  • Strong Sassy Woman 
  • Putting blind faith in the Doctor
  • Marriage = bickering
  • Offensive, inaccurate descriptors when talking about Clara
  • The Doctor reminding everyone he’s smarter than them
  • Recycling old ideas and playing it off as homage
  • Aliens not understanding human customs despite having spent significant time on Earth

→ buffy vs the creepy angel statues that kept stalking her [btvs/dw]

"I swear those statues moved!"

Giles doesn’t quite believe her. “Buffy, statues don’t move.”

"Yes, but let’s be honest here, what are the odds of them being just statues?”

Fair point.

"I think I’ve figured you out." She says. It feels odd talking to stone statues, but then again they’re not really statues, are they? "You only move when I’m not looking. When I am looking, you turn into statues, isn’t that right? And I can’t kill a statue.”

She doesn’t blink.

"What would happen if I were to close my eyes?"

Needless to say those creepy statues underestimated the strength and speed of a Slayer (even with her eyes closed).



Remember how when Capaldi was chosen as the twelfth doctor everyone had this feeble hope that he would bring Doctor Who back to what it was because he was a film director and not the mysoginistic Moffat kind

AND THEN WE HEAR THAT HE’S REFUSING TO FLIRT WITH CLARA AND IS GOING TO BRING “a bit more gravity” BACK TO DOCTOR WHO AND "I didn’t want to be Doctor Who in a Doctor Who I didn’t like,"


I am punching the air right now.

as the next season of doctor who approaches its time for me to wrestle with the question

does my faith in peter capaldi outweigh my distrust of steven moffat

Former Doctor Who Paul McGann says the show’s producers ‘missed a trick’ by not casting a female Time Lord.
Speaking at the Cambridge Union Society, the actor told students that Tilda Swinton and Diana Quick would have been his favourite choices for the Twelfth Doctor – the role eventually won by Peter Capaldi.
McGann asked the audience to imagine the skill that such actresses could bring to the portrayal of ‘one of the greatest characters ever written’.

I love this quote from McGann about Swinton as the Doctor:

"Tilda Swinton as Doctor Who, can you imagine that? Tell me you wouldn’t watch that. You would. You know you would!”

You’re damn right I would.

petition for a doctor who episode where the doctor travels back in time to meet arthur conan doyle and accidentally happens to mention how popular sherlock holmes is even 130 years later and poor acd almost breaks down crying

"Doctor before you leave…just tell me one thing."
"What’s that?"
"My books, the Sherlock Holmes books…do they die out?"
"No, Arthur. People love them. They carry on for hundreds of years."
"Damnit. God damnit. Fuck."
