all these naked doctors. kid’s show my ass
for a moment I was trying to figure out how Nine could be considered naked and then I realized he didn’t have his jacket on…
Um… Chris? Sweetie? There’s a… um… tiger cub gnawing on your kneecap. You okay there?
"Look, Rose, he’s just a wee thing."
"Doctor, wee things grow. You’re not keeping the tiger.”
"And what about your mum, then, I let you keep her!"
CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW NINE IS GRABBING ROSE’S THIGH?!
Also the CHANGE IN TEN’S EXPRESSION OVER TIME I CAN’T
Nine: Rose, I must hold your leg for alien reasons!
Ten 1: Oooh, what’s that? The universe might want to screw with me? Huh.
Ten 2: I’m pretty sure the universe is screwing with me, but I can’t prove it.
Ten 3: Definitely screwing with me. It isn’t even subtle anymore.
Ten 4: FUCK YOU, UNIVERSE. FUCK. YOU.
I left Doctor Who because I could not get along with the senior people. I left because of politics. I did not see eye-to-eye with them. I didn’t agree with the way things were being run. I didn’t like the culture that had grown up, around the series. So I left, I felt, over a principle.
I thought to remain, which would have made me a lot of money and given me huge visibility, the price I would have had to pay was to eat a lot of shit. I’m not being funny about that. I didn’t want to do that and it comes to the art of it, in a way. I feel that if you run your career and– we are vulnerable as actors and we are constantly humiliating ourselves auditioning. But if you allow that to go on, on a grand scale you will lose whatever it is about you and it will be present in your work.
If you allow your desire to be successful and visible and financially secure – if you allow that to make you throw shades on your parents, on your upbringing, then you’re knackered. You’ve got to keep something back, for yourself, because it’ll be present in your work. A purity or an idealism is essential or you’ll become– you’ve got to have standards, no matter how hard work that is. So it makes it a hard road, really.
You know, it’s easy to find a job when you’ve got no morals, you’ve got nothing to be compromised, you can go, ‘Yeah, yeah. That doesn’t matter. That director can bully that prop man and I won’t say anything about it’. But then when that director comes to you and says ‘I think you should play it like this’ you’ve surely got to go ‘How can I respect you, when you behave like that?’
So, that’s why I left. My face didn’t fit and I’m sure they were glad to see the back of me. The important thing is that I succeeded. It was a great part. I loved playing him. I loved connecting with that audience. Because I’ve always acted for adults and then suddenly you’re acting for children, who are far more tasteful; they will not be bullshitted. It’s either good, or it’s bad. They don’t schmooze at after-show parties, with cocktails.

NINE’S FACE IN THAT THIRD GIF OMG
Steven Moffat, on Christopher Eccleston’s absence from the 50th Anniversary. (via sea-change)
You missed a real chance to call it Doctor Screw, there…
Did I hear someone say Doctor Screw?
EVEN DOCTOR SCREW IS WEARING A LEATHER JACKET NINE YOU ARE SO FUCKIN NAKED
JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY
can we please talk about this
# 1998 is a hard year for jackie # even working two jobs money is tight # (especially with rose’s gymnastic lessons # but rose loves them and jackie will sell her own kidneys to ensure she can keep attending) # and christmas is just around the corner # she looks over her books and feels ill: # she simply can’t afford to get rose any proper gift this year # and it breaks her heart # because rose is so excited # she loves christmas # keeps saying how she hopes it’ll snow this year # proper like # and christmas eve jackie is up late # worrying and hating how disappointed rose is gonna be come morning # when she wakes up to see the floor is almost empty beneath the tree # and that’s when there’s a knock at the door # she opens it # (with a baseball bat at the ready - it’s late on the estate after all) # and there’s no one there # just a red child-sized bike # with a note attached # 'she's gonna be fantastic' it reads in messy loopy handwriting # 'merry christmas' # and normally she’d be worried about weirdos and stalkers but tonight # tonight it’s christmas eve and jackie tyler knows when not to look a gift horse in the mouth # so she hauls it inside quiet as she can # and the next morning when she’s awoken by the sound of rose crashing her new bike # into the hallway mirror # shrieking in delight the entire time # she takes a moment to say a silent thank you (via)
and now I’m crying
today I passed by this old guy who was wearing a leather trenchcoat. LEATHER. TRENCHCOAT. BASICALLY THE NINTH DOCTOR’S JACKET BUT AS A TRENCHCOAT.
You say many words but all I can see is
YOU CAN SEE CHRIS’ EYES
YES YES PEOPLE WERE GETTING SO MAD ABOUT CHRIS NOT APPEARING HERE/NOT WANTING TO BE IN THE 50TH BUT THEY DID THIS HERE. THEY DID THIS FOR US AND IF YOU CAN’T SEE CHRISTOPHER ECCELSTON IN THAT SECOND GIF YOU’RE NOT LOOKING HARD ENOUGH
I didn’t even watch the 50th, but it’s not like this is remotely the same damn thing as actually having Eccleston in the special. It’s not an issue of not seeing, it’s just not as cool. I don’t blame the guy if he couldn’t or didn’t want to appear, but it does still make me sad.
most underrated Doctor
