Part of the problem is that Moffat’s a big fan of the Giant Reset Button — so much so that he literally wrote in a Giant Reset Button into the episode Journey to the Center of the TARDIS. One step above the “It was all a dream” plot, the Giant Reset Button absolves the characters and the writers of any repercussions and they can carry on as they were, even though we, the audience, saw a “major event” that is evidently no longer relevant. You can have your fun and adventure, but you need not learn or grow or change from it.
He owned it.
Q:My dads tv has subtitles and when David tennant would talk it said 10:, when matt smith would talk it said 11:, and when john hurt would talk it said the war doctor:
They must have thought you were so…radical! I just imagine everyone else at the time were middle-aged men wearing demob suits! You were wild, you lot! 26 year old woman, gay Asian director… they must have thought you were bananas!
Russell T Davies to Verity Lambert on the conception of Doctor Who
Warrick Hussain was gay?
How come this is literally the first time this has been mentioned?
Yep, it’s one of those things that people keep neglecting to mention about DW.
From now on I am posting DAILY reminders that Doctor Who was made by a gay Indian man and a 26-year-old woman.
Don’t you dare erase this.
Yep. Your favourite show? Made by a gay Indian man and a young Jewish woman. Suck it up.
"Since Mary, Queen of Scotland, was a child, the English have wanted her country and her crown. She is sent to France to wed its next king, to save herself and her people, a bond that should protect her. But there are forces that conspire, forces of darkness, forces of the heart. Long may she reign.”
okay I have to start watching this show
Q:Have you gotten Doctor Who, Pokemon or Regular Show?
Haven’t gotten those yet!
Doctor Who: space alien with two hearts travels through time (and sometimes space). can regenerate into esteemed white male British actors. is accompanied by regular humans from the present-day UK (and a robot dog in the 70s? 80s?)
Has the wonderful excuse of nostalgia for using hilariously bad special effects.
Fandom loves ship wars, anti-ship wars and being racist jerks to Martha Jones.
Pokemon: professors of varying levels of bumbling and sexiness send young kids they may or may not be related to out in the world to capture, tame and breed ridiculously powerful animals, demi-gods and gods.
Regular Show: idk?
can regenerate into esteemed white male British actors
