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
My friend thinks that “whoever let him be the Doctor is on drugs”. Please prove him wrong.
No he wasn’t good, he was fantastic.
He was absolutely brilliant~
I INTERRUPT YOUR DASH WITH THIS IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Christopher Eccleston ships McSpirk, I repeat, Christopher Eccleston ships McSpirk!
i just said “HOLY SHIT” out loud
This is from a conversation I had after seeing Thor 2 last night. Didn’t hate it, but wasn’t so big on it, and was particularly underwhelmed with a lot of the writing, but this lil’ bit of our conversation pertains to a favorite subject of mine: shitty villain treatment. Christopher Eccleston’s presence devolved to him glaring and saying the occasional “rarrgh”. Not cool, man.
3:08:20 AM Vasquez Jhonen: I would never hire Christopher Eccleston just to cake him in goo and have him not say ANYTHING cool.
3:08:24 AM Vasquez Jhonen: That’s bullshit writing.
3:08:29 AM Vasquez Jhonen: You give people things to actually DO.
3:08:31 AM Vasquez Jhonen: ACT!
3:09:20 AM Vasquez Jhonen: He said more memorable stuff in two minutes of doctor who than the entirety of that movie.
3:09:25 AM Vasquez Jhonen: and it’s not just because he’s not the focus.
3:09:28 AM Vasquez Jhonen: He’s your villain!
3:09:34 AM Vasquez Jhonen: He’s why the movie is happening at all!
3:09:45 AM Vasquez Jhonen: Yes he wants revenge, but I’m not cool with that being enough!
3:09:47 AM Vasquez Jhonen: RARARRARARAGH!
3:09:54 AM Vasquez Jhonen: I’m okay now.
3:10:51 AM Tyler Hutchison: I was ok with him just being a big bad
3:11:22 AM Vasquez Jhonen: he’s too cool to just be okay.
3:11:46 AM Vasquez Jhonen: play off more than just bad. Play off tragedy!
3:11:55 AM Vasquez Jhonen: Everywhere he looks is a place that used to be his!
3:12:24 AM Vasquez Jhonen: Have him look at a toilet and say “That was where my throne was…”
3:12:40 AM Vasquez Jhonen: tears in his eyes…and then a janitor shoves him aside and poops in it.
3:12:50 AM Vasquez Jhonen: while dramatic music blares.
3:13:34 AM Vasquez Jhonen: maybe he yells over the music at the janitor and says “WHERE YOU ARE POOPING IS WHERE MY THRONE USED TO-“
3:13:39 AM Tyler Hutchison: :(
3:13:44 AM Vasquez Jhonen: and the janitor just farts so loud that it just shuts EVERYTHING up.
3:13:57 AM Vasquez Jhonen: And it just holds on Malekith’s stunned face for like a minute, a full, silent minute.
3:14:15 AM Tyler Hutchison: and then he gags a little
3:14:19 AM Vasquez Jhonen: yeah!
3:14:20 AM Tyler Hutchison: and runs out of the room
3:14:24 AM Vasquez Jhonen: It just cuts right as he’s gagging.
3:14:27 AM Vasquez Jhonen: oh man..
3:14:38 AM Vasquez Jhonen: see. that enough is like WELL YEAH, of course he’d want revenge.
What would you think would be Asgardian….? (x)
