doctor who meme: two quotes [1/2]
The great sass war
I do prefer the Doctor’s name as a mystery. I have a suspicion that it will continue to be one anyway. It could even be about him chosing the name The Doctor.
This exact leaf had to grow in that exact way in that exact place so that precise wind could tear it from that precise branch and make it fly into this exact face at that exact moment. And if just one of those tiny little things had never happened, I’d never have met you. Which makes this the most important leaf in human history.
Can I just say that despite the later importance of this leaf I can’t fucking stop laughing at this scene??? Like a leaf drifts in your face and your first instinct is to JERK VIOLENTLY and drop everything you are holding and flail about dramatically oFF THE SIDEWALK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD and just stare down oncoming traffic??? ARE YOU AN INFOMERCIAL
wait guys i may not be that much in the doctor who fandom
but if we have people who can read and write circular gallifreyan
and we know what the doctor’s name in circular gallifreyan looks like
why don’t we just… translate that to english…?
I HAVE WONDERED THIS FOR SIX MONTHS BUT I NEVER SAID ANYTHING BECAUSE I FIGURED THAT SOMEONE WOULD HAVE DONE THIS ALREADY.
i can’t tell if you guys are joking or not? but i’ll say the reason anyway because i’m sure some person will take this seriously. there are multiple ways of writing in circular gallifreyan, all of them fanmade. so uh…there’s your problem right there?
Yeah, I remember this, and I remember wincing at this. And this should’ve been my harbinger of things to come, quite honestly…
This fuckin scene doe.
900 years old
Been hanging around humanity for at least 300 of those years
You mean to fuckin tell me this man has no concept of the fuckin Atlantic Slave trade, a trade that Great Britain was a fucking part of????
“im not even human justwalk about like you own the place. works for me” THATS BECAUSE YOU LOOK LIKE A WHITE GUY YOU FUCKING JACKASS UGHH ?????? ?? ??? ?? ?? ? ?
this show kind of just looks stupider every time it comes up on my dash minus like a few episodes urgh I dunno I’m just probably never going to watch all of it
Ok though, you guys are taking things out of the context of the show though—
Doctor Who has been a HUGE proponent of “you should treat people like people”. They have PoC heroes and heroines, strong females, gay and lesbian characters who aren’t stereotypes—etc.
Two things: I think the writer is trying to drive home that point, here. Yeah, it can be seen as colour blindness, but it can also be seen as an attempt to startle people into thinking about preconceptions. It was done with less finesse than I would like, but given the tenor of the show, I honestly believe it was done with good intent.
Second of all: THE DOCTOR IS NOT HUMAN. And he hasn’t lived all of human history. What we’re seeing here is one of those empty spots in his experience—it would never occur to him that someone would treat Martha as anything less than she is, because that concept is completely alien to him.
doesn’t this kind of go back to the argument of including PoC in movies like Brave with semi-historical (but obviously still magical) settings? basically, that PoC were not only living in Europe for quite some time before the modern era, but that they were doing so as merchants and such, not just slaves. on the one hand, the doctor being “colorblind” and that being played off as a good thing is problematic. but on the other, maybe this could be referencing the fact that our historical education often cuts PoC out of the picture in western countries or else relegates them only to slave or servant roles? maybe that’s giving Doctor Who too much credit though.
I’m doing a thing where i’m trying to find out which is the most popular revival regeneration.
I’m sorry, fan rant and ramble about Doctor Who below the cut.
On Saturday at Megacon I cosplayed all eleven Doctors
My companions are all caffeinatedqueer
It took about four months to make and plan everything and about 12.5 hours to execute (9am to 10:30pm allowing an hour for lunch)
Happy 50th anniversary, Doctor Who
all…eleven…doctors…..in one day?!?!
The Doctor is “smitten” with Clara, and the show will make “some mileage” out of the love triangle between the three but “not in the ways you’ll think.” [x]
if she isn’t the human version of the fez or their estranged daughter i’m gonna be p i s s e d
don’t bring river back anymore, doctor who. no more love triangles, doctor who. no more people being infatuated with the doctor. no one wants that. you have broken the world enough. you are spouting terrible ideas and should feel terrible. >C
remember when doctor who was a show about ordinary people doing amazing things because humanity is good and beautiful at its core instead of about moffat wanking over nice camera shots and undeveloped characters and confusing memory based plots
“You are the only mystery worth solving.”
A boy and his box… off to see the universe.
