Doctor Who tumblr I am thiiiiiiis close to unfollowing you for posting a billion enthusiastic gifsets of the latest episode all over my dash
I’m glad SOMEBODY liked it and I understand you’re getting paid for this
but I just don’t want to be reminded of all the suckitude
I was actually super excited that River’s coming back because i sort of wanted her to bitchslap Clara
but then I realized this isn’t Clara’s fault, I shouldn’t blame her, I like Clara
so then I wanted River to bitchslap the Doctor
except it’s not really the Doctor that I’m mad at either
so now I’ve decided I want River to bitchslap Steven Moffat and I think that’s a good decision.
Ok so is no one going to talk about how that scene with the whispers in the control room featured Susan’s voice very prominently at the beginning?
I couldn’t recognize any of the other voices because I was too busy freaking out over Susan but I’m assuming they were a bunch of other companions…
This is the second time Susan has been referenced in the new episodes, after years and years and years of silence. WHAT DOES IT MEAN
My mom sent me the 4th Doctor’s scarf for Valentine’s Day and it’s basically made my entire life. :D
TOO MANY NICE LEGS DAISY DUKES ON MY DASH
And all I’ve taken away from the countless audio posts is that the beat matches up in a scarily perfect way with this gif:
Yeah, go ahead, find the audio. I’ll wait.
Whoa wait back up
The part of River Song was originally offered to Kate Winslet???????
let’s just take a moment to be relieved that didn’t happen, ok
“The Power of Three” theory
UNIT IS BACK! But more importantly— UNIT is back with a “clever little twist”, according to this article.
Steven Moffat says we like “cyclical things” and mentions the Jon Pertwee era.
Now, for those unfamiliar with Classic!Who, Jon Pertwee’s Doctor was exiled by the Time Lords to Earth and was stuck there for THREE SEASONS, during which time he worked with UNIT as their “scientific advisor.” His TARDIS sat in the corner of his laboratory and gathered dust.
Amy says in the trailer for this upcoming episode that the Doctor never stops to become part of their life… except for once. “The Year of the Slow Invasion.”
So I think the episode will cover a whole year. One year in which the Doctor is once again trapped on Earth and once again is an unofficial UNIT employee.
In conclusion, UNIT’s getting their Scientific Advisor back!!!!!! THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!!
I think probably the greatest tragedy of my life is that I wasn’t born in time to watch all the missing Doctor Who episodes from Patrick Troughton’s era.
