And you were brilliant
Her name was Rose (1/?)

When you’re having a made up conversation by yourself in the car and somebody sees you so you pretend to be talking on speaker phone.
Yeah, you know what I’m talking about.
“You know what we need? More confusion!” “Brilliant!”
WhatCulture has actually been improving somewhat recently with the inclusion of rather good meta XD Not to mention their taglines have been hysterically apropos XD
This article is full of good commentary
and a couple of pretty good burns as well lolon story arcs, wibbly-wobbly finales, arch nemeses, the use of the Daleks, one-off villains, recurring characters, romance (lolol I think the writer ships Doctor/Rose as a bonus), and how poor Clara is being wasted. In a way, it’s almost an indirect comparison of the RTD era to the Moffat era on these topics and is worth a read.

Yeah. Good luck, Day of the Doctor.
awww look at Mickey trying to be the Doctor’s bro
After a bit too much jiggery pokery, Jackie’s telly starts picking up a signal from an alternate universe, where a pop star named Billie Piper bears an uncanny resemblance to Rose.
#omg#and then he finds sdoacg right#and he records it cause you can’t watch that show in front of rose#but when he starts disappearing more and more for longer periods of time#rose starts to wonder where he went and what he’s doing#i mean .. isn’t he interested in tinkering anymore#so she goes looking for him#and somehow the tardis just happens to send her directly to his room#where she hears strange noises#and right as she’s knocking the door swings open#and she sees nine crying and eating ice cream#’what’s wrong doctor?’ what is it?#’oh hannah .. you deserve all the happiness’#and rose just hugs him and stares at him#until she sees the tv and rolls her eyes#cause she saw this show already with jack#when he found it and ‘accidently’ played it while they were snuggling on the couch (via tinyconfusion)
i know some people say that it would’ve been nice if ten and rose had shared a dance in a scene somewhere in series 2 so that he could think about that in the runaway bride instead of the new earth scene where he catches rose after she returns from cassandra possessing her
don’t you think it’s even more romantic that, when he sees that blonde woman dancing at donna’s reception, he immediately associates that type of scene with the seemingly innocent and non-romantic aforementioned catching scene?
i mean, we know that the new earth scene is romantic as anything anyway, what with the way they look at each other and breathe out ‘hello’ . and the way his hands linger on her arms until she pulls back. and the way their lower halves are pressed together. and the way rose’s eyes flit to his lips.
but it’s still a blink-and-you-miss-it moment, in the grand scheme of things, and i think it’s absolutely beautiful that the doctor remembers such an innocuous moment, a tiny few seconds which anyone else might forget what with all those months they spent together with many more moments taking up memory-space, but the doctor remembers, because having rose in his arms for those few seconds, getting her back after looking into her eyes all day and not seeing her, is worth remembering, to him, worth treasuring for all that time
worth remembering so much that in a crowded room at christmas, full of joyous people singing and dancing, feeling like his world has been torn apart, he sees a couple dancing, swallows hard against the pain, and thinks about rose being in his arms for those precious few seconds when everything seemed simple and happy just because rose was back, and he doesn’t think he’ll ever get to experience that again

#THIS IS WHY THE 50TH OFFENDS ME #because ”the doctor would never push the button” YES HE FUCKING WOULD #IF IT CAME DOWN TO IT #if it came down to killing a species or city or country or even A FUCKING PLANET #in order to SAVE HISTORY AND HUMANITY AND THE WHOLE UNIVERSE#HE WOULD FUCKING DO IT #don’t tell me that he wouldn’t because we know for a fact that he does it here and in other times and places #and it’s not a bad thing!!!!! #it doesn’t make him evil or stupid for not figuring out a loophole!!! #it makes him STRONG #a leader has to make the tough calls that sometimes costs innocent lives because that’s what’s best for the mission #the mission is what matters (/Buffy) #so don’t tell me that the Doctor would never destroy his planet to save the universe #because here he destroys pompeii to save history #and he takes on that burden of all the lives lost because he MUST #because he’s the ONLY ONE strong enough to shoulder that burden #and don’t tell me dw50 that he’s not that kind of person #because THIS kind of person - the one that destroys pompeii? #THIS person is a hell of a lot stronger and braver than the one who just magically-and-with-no-legitimate-plot-continuity-or-development #uses his ~cleverness~ to save his planet #you want to rewrite the past in order to bring gallifrey back and add a new plot dynamic to the show FINE #but don’t do it in a way that DESTROYS all of his AMAZING character development #don’t do the doctor that disservice #because the fact that he IS capable of putting the needs of the many over the needs of the few is what makes him so special #and the fact that he makes all these heartbreaking decisions and still manages to soldier on is what makes him phenomenal #and the fact that he will continue to make these impossible decisions again and again for the good of the universe even though it tears him apart? #THAT’S what makes him the Doctor (via winterinthetardis)
GOD BLESS YOU, NILI. GOD BLESS YOU.
