And I’m reblogging this.

This is a video of my sister, who knows less than her 3 year old about Doctor Who, trying to tell the history of it based on a slide show of images.  Its hilarious, IMHO!  

My favorite 1st Doctor story was Invasion of the Cyberbitches

People were skeptical when the young Barry took over from Peter Davidson, but it wasn’t till the 8th Doctor stories began that the show’s ratings dropped.

This video makes fun of Doctor Who specials like “The Ultimate Guide”, which just tend to be so ridiculous, tedious and inaccurate!  

Woah, RitchandSpace has nearly 4000 subscribers, that’s awesome!  Y’all wanna help me get to 4000?  Share some of my videos!  Subscribe!  

Thank you, boo bears, I lurv u!

THIS IS A WOMAN

God I miss this era.

Too bad Martha ruined it by going all “Why won’t senpai notice me owo?” on the Doctor later on.

What?  This is the story where she leaves his arse because she realizes its better for her emotional health.  It is not ruined by her fancying him.  That part of the story shows her maturity and strength as much as anything else. 

Also, the Doctor was kind of an ass to her about that, constantly reminding her she wasn’t as important as Rose. I mean, everyone complains about Martha, but there were some seriously mixed signals between the two of them, and he kind of did expect her to mop up his angst quite a bit.

I think most of the comments comparing Rose and Martha are made the first week after the Doctor and Martha met - when he’d just lost Rose, whom he had spent at least a year or two with, and fallen in love with.  And I feel like he was trying to be explicit by saying that she was not there to replace his previous romance.  And when he realized she was having romantic feelings for him, he held back with his attachment to her, because he didn’t want her to feel like he reciprocated.  And she had made the decision to stay with him long-term, after he repeatedly said she wasn’t replacing Rose, and he took her home, and said the trip was over.

I feel like in terms of leading someone on, he made a decent effort to communicate his feelings early on.

Martha knew she was the rebound.  She knew it.  She literally says it in ”Gridlock”.  But she fancied him, so she went along with it and kept having fun, until it got out of control and fucked up her home life, at which point he took for granted that she’d wanna stay with him, and she just said no and left.

In a way, I think its a really straight forward story of a woman falling for a heartbroken man.  They both want different things from each other.  And that’s unhealthy.  Which they eventually both acknowledge, and that’s what splits them up.  

I think I’ve wandered from the point, but whatever, I just like talking about them.

The Doctor wouldn’t.  He’d find another way.

and the thing is Moffat is 100% right because regardless of if he called himself “The Doctor” during the Time War he was still the Doctor deep deep down and in the end he saves lives, and he saved his people

"I lack the creativity to imagine characters being forced to make difficult choices, especially since my understanding of said characters is surface-deep at best. Sometimes I think about writing real emotional consequences to things, but then I remember how much easier it would be to avoid consequences whatsoever with some bizarre winding hole-filled plot. I am a professional writer who overcomes difficulty writing a scene by shoving in a contrived loophole so I don’t have to write it. Please punch me in the face."

The whole point of the Time War is that it was meant to be so massive and devastating and unimaginable, that it was the only thing that could bring the Doctor to do something so awful.

The reason it was never shown before: it was meant to be so bad that we couldn’t imagine it.  

But Steven Moffat decided to try and imagine it, and he admits that he failed.  So instead of leaving it alone, mysterious, seething and burning in the darkest recesses of our imaginations, he just changed it.
