Doctor Who: The Story of Martha
#i think this is a really important scene for martha#because she sees that the doctor is treating jack like shit#and the doctor KNOWS that he did wrong by jack#and yet he still doesn’t seem to care#he’s not apologetic or ashamed - he’s cruel and flippant#”busy life. moving on” because the doctor doesn’t look back#and i think it’s really important for Martha to see that#see that he’s AWARE of what he does#it’s not the doctor being a dick and not realizing it#(which is probably how she’s been rationalizing her experience with him this whole time)#but he’s actively aware that he’s being a douchecanoe and actively choosing to not do anything about it#and for her to realize that is probably one of the turning points for martha#it’s her realizing that the doctor is not being good to her (or for her) and that she needs to think about making a change#because in all actuality s3!doctor is not a man you really should want to be friends with#s1 s2 s4 doctor yes - they’re the doctor and they can be mean and grumpy and scary or whatevs but they’re still a good person#s3 doctor is not a good person#he’s grieving and his grief is turning him into a cold emotionless asshole#and this scene is martha seeing his douchebaggery from an outside pov#and realizing that it’s not okay to just forgive or write off or rationalize his cruelty just because she loves him#i have a lot of martha feelings ok#dw (winterinthetardis)
The Doctor (Bashir) in the TARDIS :D A little bit different from what I usually post, but because it included me and my Jack I post it here anyway. This is NO MANIP. I took this photo of Alexander Siddig today at FedCon 2014 in Düsseldorf. Against all odds my Jack and me were with him in the elevater when he was on his way to the TARDIS. We led him to the TARDIS and he took Jacks coat on, which is a real prop from the show - so here I give you: Alexander Siddig as the Doctor with Jack Harkness’ coat and blaster!
…make that a double hummina.
I just made a really horrible gargling hiss noise like some kind of awful swamp creature.
oh fuck my life, oh despair
OH MY GOD
David W. Pritchard, on Stephen Moffat
refusing to acknowledge that people don’t mean william carlos williams when they talk about “the doctor” would not be a thing I would do but if someone did it in a book I would think “this is the character I will pay attention to for the rest of the book”
If you don’t think William Carlos Williams is literally a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey I question your investment in either poetry or science fiction.
"I saw the figure 5 in gold on a red fire truck" - Red and gold are the Prydonian colors. Coincidence? I think not. WCW is a Time Lord.
Frobisher and Six.
YES! if only this had happened… frobisher is the BEST companion there ever was
Reason #1 to be bitter towards Moffat that are better then a large portion of reasons people give that they are bitter towards Moffat: Frobisher has yet to appear.
Frobisher has appeared in every episode. He just hasn’t identified himself. Go back and watch the Moffat era and, for every story, play “guess which character is Frobisher.” It’s fun.
Look Abby, your favorite

Oh no this is super adorable
I finally stopped to take a closer look at this and oh my GOD this is amazing.

there was some other thing involved there, The Watcher, which was the pale bald thing you can see in the middle there. I forget what his deal was.

i thought 11/12 was pretty cheesy (the speech, the you-know-who), but the particular shots in this gif were great
