    You could watch it at any time! The episode really is removed from all other plot arcs and continuations occurring during the series, cause it was created as a standalone anniversary special. The closest thing we have to an independent Doctor Who movie, really.

    Just as long as you know that Clara is the Doctor’s companion and the Ponds are gone by this point, you should be able to understand everything without any immediate spoilers. The episode deals with the Time War, that’s all you need to know.

    Thank you! I still can’t believe it’s all really over…

    I went to Emerson College in Boston!

    totallynotjaxon said: Would you say that if doctor who were to keep going on forever it would have to do a crossover with something My votes either superwholock or downton Abby What's yours? :) please respond

    Honestly, I don’t really think they’d do a televised crossover like that. In some of the Doctor Who novels though, the Doctor has mentioned meeting Sherlock Holmes and insists that he was a real person, which is neat.

    Superwholock will never, ever, ever happen on television, and I just don’t really see any other kind of genuine crossover episode working within the context of the show. At best, maybe they’d do some kind of Red Nose Day special with lots of characters from different family-friendly BBC shows hanging out in the TARDIS or something for 6 minutes.

    Of course you do, those little patterned dresses are freakin’ adorable.

    I wrote a style guide that’s perfect for cosplay or just everyday fashion inspiration, complete with links to affordable Oswald-style clothing! 

    Check out what you need to emulate Clara’s cutest looks, from Peter Pan collars to adventure-friendly ankle booties.

    I did! I do a lot of fashion bloggin’, so I love when I can merge interests like this.

    And thank you! I’m planning on writing similar guides for all stylish New Who ladies, and possibly some Classic gals if people would like that, too.

    Meta Updates!

    So, a while back I filmed a Clara Oswald makeup tutorial, that I was really pretty proud of, too. Unfortunately, I had a hard drive disruption and ended up getting a new computer shortly after…so while the unedited video file may still be lurking in the depths of my backup folder full of whatever items I could salvage, for now, it’s missing and probably for good.

    But, I do plan on refilming it and making it even better, so look for that in the future! Definitely in time for the Series 8 premiere :)

    And in other Clara style news, for any aspiring Clara cosplayers or fans of the character’s fashion, I might have a little surprise to be posted soon…

    Ohhhhh hmmm…well, I’d personally love to travel with Four, Eight or Eleven, because they’re my favorites. Traveling with Six would probably be a lot of fun too, cause it would probably turn into a contest of who can outwit the other in the most obnoxious yet loving way possible very, very quickly.

    And as for an episode of Doctor Who that I’d write, I’ve actually posted about this before! Definitely, definitely, definitely a historical episode centered on Ernest Shackleton.

    Oh, you mean this gif? :P

    And there’s this one too (where the clip opens with them just keeping their faces together behind the alcohol bottle):

    Both are from this little video collection of Tom Baker bloopers and gags, which is really worth a watch, especially cause you also get the greatest (off the record) Classic Who moment ever:

    Fourth Doctor: Drifting towards oblivion…how long, K-9?

    K-9: Insufficient data.

    Fourth Doctor: Yeah, you never fucking know the answer when it’s important.

    EDIT: Ugh, this particular clip leaves out the second best part. After Tom asks K-9 what his Christmas wish is, K-9 asks “And what is it you desire, Master?”

    and Tom Baker opens his mouth and starts to say something, then stops, and just slowly turns and looks at Mary Tamm for a few seconds, who realizes what he’s implying, gets all flustered, and just starts laughing all embarrassed along with the rest of the crew. Iconic.
