I don’t think I’ve ever cried as much watching a show.
I don’t usually like canon pairings, but these two made me cry so hard. One of the reasons I love Doctor Who: if you can bring me to tears over a het pairing (het!), you’re golden.
THIS. SO MUCH THIS. YES.
Really loving all the royal wedding photos with Doctor Who stuff photo-shopped into the background. MUST. FIND. MORE.
So…apparently Chris Hardwick is doing a show in my city next week.
WHY AM I FIRST HEARING ABOUT THIS NOW????
I’m glad I’m not the only one who was waiting for the Doctor to crash the royal wedding.
*sigh* Maybe next time…

“And Queen Victoria became Empress of India. She never even fucking went there, you know? She was one of our more frumpy queens… they’re all frumpy, aren’t they? Because it’s a bad idea when cousins marry! Bottom of the gene pool, you know. You’re just scraping the barrel there, “We’ve haven’t got enough for any more of you royals there, sorry.” First rule of genetics: spread the genes apart! But the royals are just obsessed with, “Are you a royal family? Are you a royal member? Well, then you can marry me ‘cause you’re same gene pool, and our IQs will go down the toilet.” Fantastic! That’s why there’s no crazy royals, they’re all kind of, “Hello! Hello, what do you do? You’re a plumber! What on Earth is that?””

We stole countries with the cunning use of flags! Yeah, just sail around the world and stick a flag in.
“I claim India for Britain!”
They go, “You can’t claim us, we live here! 500 million of us!”
“Do you have a flag?”
“We don’t need a bloody flag! It’s our country, you bastards!”
“No flag, no country, you can’t have one! That’s the rules that I’ve just made up.”

This was actually written as a reply to definitelynotcanon?? She was asking why people hated Moffat so much, but I wrote quite a lot and there wasn’t an ability to put a “read more” bit in, and I certainly didn’t want to clog up people’s dashboard’s with it, so this gets its own post.
It was also building off of reajeasa’s post here. Might want to read that to get an idea where I was going off of.
Beyond all of that, Moffat has repeatedly shown that he’s quite sexist outside of the show, by being demeaning and kind of a total asshole. Inside the show he writes characters as men being lol obsessed with sex and women not having much to live for beyond them. This is not only perpetrated inside the show, he has actually said in an interview once, in several … rather revealing interviews that it’s not just something that slips out in writing, he clearly thinks this in real life. For example:
New Who fans should definitely read this post. I think Amy’s obsession with the Doctor is why I’ve always disliked her character, but I hadn’t thought about River in those terms as well. Definitely leaves me feeling conflicted about liking the show.
So “The Impossible Astronaut” gave us an episode taking place in the White House and a throw-away line about two of the Founding Fathers being infatuated with the Doctor.
*sits back to await the inevitable crossovers with The West Wing and 1776*
I mean, really, it’d be brilliant. I’m pretty sure the Doctor would make Toby’s head explode.
I LOVED DAVID TENNANT AND ROSE/DONNA.
Matt Smith can leave.
No, I don’t know why. Must be the coat.
