Alex Kingston being adorable behind the scenes of The Name of the Doctor [x]
Day of the Moon // The Name Of The Doctor
#and the story goes like this: a boy meets a girl who knows everything about him - even his deepest and most precious secret #and she tells him stories of the future together. and she’s mysterious. and an enigma. #and he sacrifices herself for him - to save him and to give them another chance #and then she re-appears again - the fireball of secrets. but the boy is a coward so he tries to run away. #because she is his future and she may bring everything with her and she can make him feel things he’s promised himself he’d never feel again #but the girl comes back and back again and she is mad and crazy and understand him and she is his equal on every level #and at this time he stops running away from her - he runs with her. hand in hand. towards danger and the wonders of the worlds. #and then he finds out the she is not a normal girl. she’s something more. she’s a wonder. she’s a miracle. #and she is his - in every meaning of this word. and she loves him so much she is ready to sacrifice the whole universe. #and he marries her. not because he has to but because he wants to. because as much as she is his - he is hers. #but nothing lasts forever. she’s an echo and a constant reminder that he already lost her. so he never says goodbye. #he turns around and runs - away from her once again. because it hurts less. because saying goodbye would mean losing her all over again. #but she is never gone. she’s there with him. all the time. he can see her. she can feel her. he hears her. #she is loved just like she is forgiven: always and completely. #this is not a ghost story. this is a love story.

- “The Doctor has been many things… but never bloodsoaked.”
- “Tell that to the Sycorax, or Soloman the trader, or the Cybermen, or the Daleks.”
John hurt is not only Ollivander, but also is the narrator for the Tigger movie…
maybe he won’t be so bad after all
so basically, skipping 9 really isn’t a big deal any more
Nine was seen in the background when the Doctors were running past Clara in the Doctor’s time stream. So we’re not skipping nine. And he has consistently been shown in the faces of the Doctor during Moffat’s era.
Petition to start referring to John Hurt’s Doctor as “Missingno Doctor” until stuff is cleared up
JUST FINISHED WATCHING “THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR”
What if John Hurt is an older Eighth Doctor? He broke the promise the Doctor made to be a force of good by being destructive and all the Time War business. That wouldn’t mess up the numbers. And it would gel with seeing him in Nine’s leather jacket. (If that’s true.)
plot twist: Clara isnt just the impossible girl, shes kim possible
Well that was all a bit Keystone Cops, wasn’t it? Our biggest surprise, our most secret episode, a revelation about the Doctor that changes everything…
… and we’d have got away with it too, if we hadn’t accidentally sent Blu Ray copies of Name Of The Doctor to 210 Doctor Who fans in America.
Erm - security-wise, that’s not GOOD, is it? I mean, it’s not top notch, it’s hard to defend as professional level, hard-line secrecy.
My favourite fact is that they’re BLU RAYS. Listen, we don’t just leak any old rubbish, we leak in high def. 1080p or nothing, that’s us. Every last pixel in beautifully rendered detail. It’s like getting caught extra naked.
But here’s the thing. Never mind us blundering fools, check out the fans. 210 of them, with the top secret episode in their grasp - and because we asked nicely, they didn’t breathe a word. Not one. Even Doctor Who websites have been closing their comments sections, just in case anyone blurts. I’m gobsmacked. I’m impressed. Actually, I’m humbled. And we are all very grateful.
Now you might be thinking, what does all this matter? It’s a plot development in the mad old fantasy world of Doctor Who, why is that important? Well of course, it’s not important, and in the scheme of things, it doesn’t matter at all. Just as it doesn’t matter when you’re telling a joke, and some idiot shouts out the punchline before you finish. It’s irritating, that’s all. It’s bad manners.
Well no bad manners here! 210 Doctor Who fans kept the secret, and many, many more fans helped. I wish I could send you all flowers, but I don’t know where you live (and given our record, you really shouldn’t be sharing private information with us.) So instead, if we can get our act together - and I forgive you for thinking that’s a BIG if - there will be a little video treat released later tonight.
10 plus 11 gives you…❞
you can talk a lot of shit about the plot of series 7, but the aesthetics are A+
