This is a shout out to all the glasses wearers of the world.

What i have learnt in these last few months is that wearing glasses isn’t a walk in the park. There is a daily struggle with dirt, smudges, finger prints, rain, bright lights, hot drinks, steam, needing frame adjustments, loosing cleaning cloths, lying down, bending over and wearing headphones to say the least.

All this and i can still see the world without mine. I cant imagine having to rely on them!

OK guys. This moment does not have enough love. In fact, it has some unfortunate anti-love that I aim to resolve here.

Yes, this episode heavily references Girl in the Fireplace. And yes, that episode is pretty much the most anti-shippy thing to happen in canon for Doctor/Rose.

BUT THIS MOMENT IS GREAT AND WE DOCTOR/ROSE SHIPPERS SHOULD LOVE IT TO PIECES LET ME EXPLAIN!!!!

Twelve can’t remember Clara’s name at first. Nor Vastra nor Jenny nor Strax. He leaves Clara in danger and he won’t even give her the screwdriver. He does questionable things—he’s darker, I get that.

But even so, and even though he’s trying to figure things out with the bad guy, and does not have all his memories intact (‘Handles’? Really, Doctor??) he CANNOT leave the bunch of roses on the floor.

The bunch of yellow roses—yellow which signifies remembrance. There are centuries-old ballads (‘Round Her Neck She Wears a Yeller Ribbon’) and old movies (‘She Wore a Yellow Ribbon’) and folk songs (‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree’) all about yellow being the color of remembrance—specifically in all these pop-culture cases, remembrance of a lost love.

And as he’s struggling to remember why droids harvesting parts rings a bell with him, does he look at the droid? No. Does he have flashbacks to women making double entendres with cleavage spilling out? No. (And the eventual reference to MdP is blah blah bland). But what does he do? He twirls the roses and holds them just a little bit closer. This is so reminiscent of the Journal of Impossible Things, where even as a human Ten can’t remember the name of the TARDIS, or the sonic screwdriver—but he keeps drawing roses in his journal and hers is the only face he can canonically put a name to.

Moffat may be many, many things, and do many, many things that I do not particularly like, but this… this is pretty awesome guys. This isn’t anti-shippy at all. This is shippy and sweet and subtle in the extreme.

And I love it and I really think you should too <3

You have replaced every piece of yourself. Mechanic or organic. Time and time again. There’s not a trace of the original you left.

my favorite part of this episode

Am I home? If you want to be.

He seems so young and naive here. Like he never really thought Clara would want to leave him. Such a subtle scene brilliantly acted by Peter. One of my fave moments from Deep Breath.



I’m the Doctor. I’ve lived for over 2,000 years and not all of them were good. I’ve made many mistakes and it’s about time that I did something about that.



It was easy to get me to do this TV show. All the roles I’ve ever gotten, you’ve seen the roles I’ve gotten. They’ve been wonderful but so many of them have been downtrodden. They’ve been women who are pretty much asexual, they haven’t been realized, they have careers but no names. And all of a sudden I was given this opportunity to play someone sexy, mysterious, someone complicated. And it was a chance to use my craft. It was a chance to transform. It was a chance to surprise myself and the public. And I took it. - Viola Davis

Twelve in Deep Breath (8.01)

I am Scottish. I can complain about things!

  • Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
  • Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that

Overture to a post.

And yet Rory is called badass for standing up to the Doctor while Danny gets shat on by the fandom for doing the exact same thing.

this is Danny telling his personal experience and trying to make that experience useful to someone he cares about, which is a legitimate relationship thing.  NOT the same as controlling or abusive. he’s not even being rigid like not approving of her travels in the TARDIS.  he’s absolutely more flexible to the whole adventure thing than i expected anybody to be, and a lot more than past companions’ boyfriends had been.

You’re not 21 until you’ve learned that it’s actually “duct tape” and not “duck tape”



Thanks for that Netflix.
