because of John Hurt.
But, the Doctor says that he was “not acting under the name of the Doctor”
therefore, he’s not the “real” Ninth Doctor…
he can’t be any “Doctor” because he wasn’t acting under that name
personally I think he’s the Valeyard but that’s supposed to come in the future or something so I dunno you guys
but yeah: the way I see it, Nine is Nine and Ten is Ten and Eleven is Eleven…
and this new incarnation is something else entirely.
(they introduced him in the credit at the end as “the Doctor,” but I’m still interpreting this as him being another incarnation…but I don’t think it will officially through off the numbers.)
THAT OPENING MONTAGE THING OH MY GOD I SCREAMED EVERY TIME THEY SHOWED A NEW REGENERATION.
you don’t understand the classic who flashbacks are like one of the things i hope and watch for actively
and oh my god that was seamless and stunning and just
AND WE STILL HAVE 40 MINUTES TO GO WITH THIS PREMISE INTACT OH MY GOD LET’S DO THIS
Anonymous asked: Won't river get pissed if she finds out Clara kissed the doctor? Also I think Moffat is a mad genius that wants to steal all of the whovians feels by killing her as often as possible. Thank you and may the timey wimey space stuff be with you.
I imagine her reaction would be something like this:
Followed by this:
And lastly, this:
laser--catz asked: in all honestly do you think the show is starting to go downhill or at least not as good as it used to be with moffat writing his ridiculously confusing plot lines?
I don’t think so at all! When a show is nearly 50 years old, it’s always going to have its ups and downs. I really don’t think that Moffat’s plotlines are ridiculously confusing, though they can just be a little frustrating with how convoluted and involved they can get.
I’ve said it loads of times before, but the Series 5 finale (both parts) is still the greatest episode of Doctor Who I’ve ever seen, and the Series 7 premiere episode and mid-series finale were incredible.
Actually, I think that Moffat has been listening to fan/ratings feedback, since he has promised that this series will have episodes that feel like “mini movies” and aren’t so focused on being connected to a giant arc with little threads running throughout, like Series 6 was.
A little mystery with Clara isn’t a bad thing at all, unless it gets stretched throughout three seasons (counting Silence in the Library) like it did with River Song. I think once Clara’s identity is established, and we’ve got the Doctor and his companion traveling through space and time once again, everything is going to be a lot clearer and easier to follow. That’s the hope, anyway!
But yeah, to sum up: I personally don’t think it’s going downhill anymore than it has gone up and down in the past, and I’m looking forward to format of the rest of the series!
megadwf asked: What do you think of the mystical and magical time travelling Clara? I think she's related to the Doctor somehow! A previous wife perhaps?
I was kind of secretly hoping that she was an incarnation of Romana, cause I love Romana, but I see now that this is almost certainly wrong, haha.
The thing that I wonder though, is if Clara has any control over where she ends up in time, and if she is randomly transported only after her death? Is she purposefully following the Doctor, or is it more like kismet, kind of in the way that he had the umbrella for her without really realizing it?
I’m hoping she’s not related to him, cause that would make that kiss (which I surprisingly liked, a lot, even though I hate 98% of all Doctor/companion “relationships”) hella awkward…but it would be cool if she was Romana’s daughter or something like that.
Sorry I keep trying to bring Romana into this, Clara just reminds me of her a little bit, and I’ve been watching a lot of Classic Who with her in it lately. Hahaha.
(They even kind of look similar, at least compared to her first incarnation)
