"can you talk about something other than Doctor Who?"
I’m having a horrible day, and when I saw this little puppy, I smiled
So here, have a little Bernese mountain dog puppy dog that is playing in the snow on your dash
HOW CAN THERE BE SADNESS IN THE WORLD WITH PUPPIES LIKE THIS.
I’ve never seen anyone eating candy floss so seriously
"I am the oncoming storm"
I want to follow new blogs so it would be very nice if you could reblog this if you post some or all of the following :)
- Doctor who
- Harry Potter
Okay, okay. I’ll admit it. That’s the first step, right? Admitting it? Well here goes. I have a problem. I need help. I can’t stop.
I’m addicted to Netflix.
Best Pope story yet?
Pope Francis has been sneaking out of the Vatican at night to serve the homeless.
The Pope for people who don’t like popes strikes again.
HE WAS ALSO A BOUNCER AT A NIGHTCLUB
Pope Francis has also shed the trappings of wealth that generally accompany his position (golden cape, ornate throne) in favor of white threads and a simple wooden chair. He’s also the first Pope to wash a woman’s feet, insisting that it’s what Jesus Christ would have done. Even if you’re not religious you can appreciate that this is a genuinely good man, and a wonderful leader of the Catholic Church.
I’m not Christian but I’ll never pass up an opportunity to reblog something about Pope Francis. I think he’s completely awesome. he actually does the things the pope SHOULD be doing, not wearing fucking golden sheets and sitting on a golden fucking throne. the man actually tries to live like Christ and that’s pretty amazing to me, since 99% of the Christians I’ve ever met don’t. four for you Pope Francis, you go Pope Francis.
HE WAS A BOUNCER WHAT
Knock Knock Knock Knock
*opens door slightly* *peeks out* Do we who?
*screams* DO WE WOOOOOOOOOOO WEEEEEEE OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WEEE OOOOOH OOOOOOOH OOOOOOOOH OOOOOOOOOH!! *turns into tardis*
you know this is my most popular gifset by far but I don’t know if people noticed in my original tags on it I wrote “and it was never mentioned again”. This is really typical of his writing. He randomly introduces this small thing that affects all of canon but then never mentions it again. The TARDIS has always made that noise why are we suddenly being told that it’s just the Doctor leaving the breaks on for 900+ years? And, if we are supposed to believe this, why is it never ever mentioned again. The TARDIS continues to make the noise we’ve all come to love and recognize and this line is forgotten. But I think it’s really representative of Moffat’s writing to do something like this and I find it to be very irritating. Of course I would rather this line be forgotten rather than the TARDIS noise suddenly stop existing, but why include something like this in the first place. Especially when it has an impact on the whole show and not just his own stories (as he tends to do /cough john hurt cough/)
This “joke” is actually extremely disrespectful to the people who worked hard to make the original TARDIS sound, way back in 1963. They wanted a sort of almost ripping noise, which is the sound of the TARDIS “ripping” through time and space. They spent a great deal of time and work to create this unique sound, so to say that the TARDIS isn’t supposed to make the noise is extremely disrespectful of the work they put into this iconic sound. Not to mention that every Time Lord seen flying a TARDIS also makes this sound, so canonically, it’s not true. When Romana flies the TARDIS, WITH THE MANUAL, it makes the sound. When the Master flies his TARDIS, it makes the sound. When a Time Lord flies a TARDIS, it makes the sound. Flying the TARDIS means making the sound.
My personal favorite explanation for this (I read it somewhere on tumblr) is that River is probably just messing with him here (And I’m accepting it as canon because otherwise I’ll just get angry). We all love the sound, the Doctor especially. We know that the Tardis can go on silent mode, so I’m going to assume that River put it on silent mode, made her little joke, and then it was ignored. It is absolutely truly canon that the Tardis noise is /not/ leaving the breaks on.
happy 50th annivesary doctor who
