The best part of any given ‘Doctor Who’ novel has got to be how various authors describe the TARDIS materialising.
YESTERDAY EVENING I WAS WONDERING WHY REMUS LOVED CHOCOLATE SO MUCH WHEN I REALISED
CHOCOLATE IS POISONOUS FOR DOGS
WHAT IF YOUNG REMUS STARTED LOVING CHOCOLATE BECAUSE HE THOUGHT IT KILLED THE WOLF PART OF HIM
just once I want a Lupin headcanon that doesn’t make me want to sent myself on fire
The only thing I dislike about the New-paradigm Daleks is they didn’t make the orange one the supreme.
That’s the most ridiculous looking one and going by the evidence it seems the higher rank a Dalek is the more ridiculous is looks.
Spastic (or “spacker”) is basically just a crueler variant of retard; typically directed at those with cerebral palsy or similar disabilities (note: originally it was more of a medical term but soon become adopted by bullies as an insult). It ain’t cute to throw that word around here in the UK and that’s why a lot of us reacted in a very “wait what the fuck” way to Weird Al using it in “Word Crimes”.
YMMV may vary though, I’ve had that word slung at me in this context and I laughed at Weird Al’s usage.
Can we stop with the nonsense about promo pics. If nothing else a lot of both offical and fan-made book/audio covers use them and it’s really distracting knowing where they come from
I know this will appear profoundly odd to you, but Amy is actually the one companion who makes me feel like it could be me there. The Doctor took her with him because he realised, or had a suspicion, about what happened to her and her family - but there’s no need to see this in a literal manner of “you have to have a crack in your wall to make the Doctor travel with you”. A lot of Amy’s character and story works in metaphors and for me that’s one of those things.
Because, really, he saw someone who was strangely out of place. A big house, a small girl. Damaged even, a life being devoured, pieces being taken she didn’t know she was missing. Grieving losses she couldn’t remember. She can be brave, she can fall on her feet, but she’s still misunderstood, still afraid of being abandoned, still scared too trust. She’s the most intrinsically flawed of all the companions, because she can’t not be.
He didn’t “take the best”. He took the most lost.
And maybe that’s a little messed up, but that is way closer to me than all other companions combined.
I’m really sorry if it makes you feel sad that you can’t find yourself in this, but you really need to understand that what you should feel like is incredibly grateful that another companion can do that for you. And grant me Amy Pond.
(And grant others Clara Oswald, who actually is an ordinary girl and whose echo the Doctor offered to take travelling long before he realised her connection to the girl in the Dalek Asylum.)
Reblogging because I feel it’s important to show how some people view Amy.
Also we just had 3 “ordinary” companions in a row and people get on Amy’s case for being something different and appealing to other people? It feels a little I don’t know……….self entitled?

That is so true. So so true.
Good Point. I want my crazy shit this time around I want Robot Dogs, Robot T-rexs and shape-shifting alien penguins. Maybe an ice warrior or a Sea Devil.
I just realised something
The “War Doctor doesn’t count” people are the new “Eighth Doctor doesn’t count” people.
How blessed we are for we can relive the ignorance and stupidity of the fandom.
People are really saying the War Doctor doesn’t count?
WHEN will John Hurt start getting the respect from this fandom that he deserves?
John Hurt didn’t have a Xenomorph burst from his chest for this shit have some respect
