Yes please. What intrigues me the most about Eight being the Time War!Doctor is that he is, I think, the most romantic/idealistic Doctor and his love for humanity and the world is completely and totally worn on his sleeve. And what I’ve always been interested in is to see how that sweet man transformed into the damaged one we see in S1. What happened between exactly?
And if you listen to some of Eight’s audiobooks (I’ve just started) you can hear in some of his later stuff, a much darker Doctor than as the one he began.
(lol be warned… my fic is sorta old so it’s probably -meh-)
Aw, thank you, dear! That’s very sweet.
I just really want Eight and Time War stuff to be filmed. Like can you imagine… seeing children Time Lords/Ladies regenerating in the street? Like damn, that’d be the realest shit ever.
Plus, Eight is just so lovable.
idk just thinking! I haven’t watched all of classic who yet but I was intrigued by this “secret” 9 idea. I could kind of see it fitting in with the 9 we know too, but I’d hate to sit and think about it and possibly rewatch it to explain. but I could see it. oh well I guess we’ll find out, and hopefully they do it brilliantly!! :)
Yeah, I understand what you’re saying. And I haven’t watched a whole bunch of Classic DW either. I think that’s what the end of the episode was hinting at, that Hurt’s Doctor did something that was so atrocious and un-Doctor-like that our!Doctor doesn’t recognize that regeneration as the Doctor.
All I’m saying is, if that’s the case, and I do understand why that he deals with things in a specific way, but IF (and I mean if) Hurt’s Doctor WAS a regeneration and not some separate entity of the Doctor that he still should take responsibility for his actions. IMO, Moffat’s writing of the Doctor tends not to have consequences for treating other people in a bad manner, so I wouldn’t be super surprised if that’s the case.
Either way, I am looking forward to the 50th and I’m excited to see how everything is wrapped up.
I’m not sure! I don’t think any one knows, really. The fact that zero pictures of Billie have come up does make me wonder, though… Is it because we’ll get Pete’s World!Rose post Journey’s End, is it because she’s with other companions and that would spoil their surprise appearance? I don’t know.
I desperately hope she gets a sizable role in the episode but I don’t we have any idea yet. It seems that David is going to have a lot of relevance in the ep, which makes me hope that Billie will too, but it’s all up in the air right now. I guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed.
I’ve been thinking about that as well. I wonder if/when they’ll approach it… I would be super in to Joan x Mary for a little while at least. She’s already expressed interest in men, early on in the season, but I’d love to have her be canonically bi.
Of course, even if she is in the show, that doesn’t mean she’d stay because 1.) Holmes and Watson is really where the heart of the show is (not in a ship sense, but just platonically… or however you choose to interpret it) and 2.) Mary does die in the books.
But it’d be super great to get some more characters from canon in the show!
I’m also desperate to get Ms. Hudson back.
I am so happy. You’re right. Like, I wanted Irene to beat Sherlock so badly. I was really disappointed in BBC’s Sherlock when Irene ended up being outsmarted by Holmes and then having to be saved by him. But not only did she outsmart him, WATSON outsmarted her.
Praise the heavens.
i just finished watching
elementary is the greatest show to ever grace the planet
I thoroughly enjoy it.
Yeah, from what I’ve been seeing on my dash, most people knew Irene was going to be there. BUT, it honestly didn’t really take away from the emotion, I think mostly because of how brilliantly Jonny and Lucy played it.
I’m super curious as to how Irene is going to be involved. I noticed in Holmes’ description of Irene, that he didn’t mention that she “beat” him. SO, I’m assuming that her ultimate “triumph” or whatever will be a part of future episodes. That could mean, like you said, she’s a part of Moriarty’s conspiracy, I suppose. But there’s probably loads of directions it could go in. Like… is she a partner in his crimes? Is she a prisoner?
I literally punched the air at the penis line. Perf.
Omg it’s precious
I don’t think so?
I mean, I know that’s what people call Bruce and Tony a lot, but a specific thing? No.
Thank you, darling :]
This is so sweet. Thank you!
Eurgh, sorry if you sent this earlier but Tumblr hasn’t been showing me when I receive asks.
But, as per your message, I personally don’t think I’ll ever ship the Doctor with anyone as much as Rose. Like, they’re my OTP and no other DW pairing will ever surpass them, just as I’m sure that no other companion will surpass my love for Rose.
But, that being said, the Doctor is so radically different in his personality, experiences, mannerisms, etc that even though he is technically the same man, he is quite different each time he regenerates. I can’t really imagine Rose being with-say-Four or Eleven, really, for that matter.
I think the Doctor will always love Rose, but I don’t think he’s always going to be in love with Rose. I believe Rose got her happy ending. And I believe the Doctor has moved on (for the most part) and will continue to do so. I want the Doctor to be happy and I want him to be able to love again. So, whenever the right person comes along, I’ll be okay with shipping it.
As of right now, I don’t ship 11/Clara very intensely but I do see a blossoming romance, and I think they’re sweet together.
That all being said, of course it’s all down to personal preferences. It’s totally cool to ship the Doctor with no one, everyone, or just Rose!
