Doctor Who themed wedding
I love how it’s themed, but done in a way that’s gorgeous and works if you don’t get the reference.
I’m just really absolutely 100% in love with Nine and I think it cheapens his character to make him not the one who saw the Time War. He is clearly written as someone who is burdened by what he has freshly seen, and you can’t just erase that dammit.
I have nothing against John Hurt, I just think the show burned bridges and wants to pretend they didn’t. Yeah it’s a time travel show, but Moffat treats time and continuity with 0 respect. It’s tiresome and hacky and masturbatory, which isn’t the spirit of the show I fell in love with.
…I’ve never seen Nine as the one who saw the Time War. He’s still checking his face out in the mirror in his first appearance, which means it’s early on for him. (All the solo adventures that Rose saw pictures of probably happened in between when he first disappeared and when it occurred to him to come back and mention that he has a time machine.)
We know the Eighth Doctor played by Paul McGann is canonical even if the TV movie where he appeared is arguably not, so I assumed he was the Time War Doctor. I agree it’s still fresh for Nine, but it always made more sense to me that he was the regeneration from whatever Eight had to do to end it.
“What does it look like?”
“Like a transmitter. Round and massive! Somewhere slap bang in the middle of London. A huge, metal, circular structure. Like a dish, a like a wheel, round, radial, close to where we’re standing.”
Can we talk about how badass Martha Jones is?
She’s a medical student. The best in her class.
She’s at the hospital doing her medical thing.
There’s this guy. She needs to check his heartbeat.
He has two fucking hearts.
Okay? take that in for a minute.
He has TWO FUCKING HEARTS.
Now we all think this is reeeeeal funny cause we know he’s the Doctor.
But she doesn’t know that!
She doesn’t know that aliens exist!
All she knows is that this normal-looking guy has TWO HEARTS.
And what the fuck does badass Martha Jones do?
She looks him straight in the eye.
She doesn’t scream.
She doesn’t stab him.
She doesn’t recoil.
She just looks up at him, like “what the fuck is your problem.”
Look at those eyes. They aren’t screaming. They aren’t scared. They aren’t even curious.
They just simply say, in a calm and rational manner, “what the fuck is your problem.”
You wanna talk about level-headed in a crisis.
HOW BADASS IS THAT?!
And then he winks at her.
And you know what she does?
She goes “okay, I’ll deal with this later.”
Not “hey supervisor, this man has TWO GODDAMN HEARTS.”
Not “hey world check it out this man is an alien.”
Nope, Martha BADASS MOTHAFUCKA Jones goes “this is not my problem right now. I’ll solve this later.”
Can we get this woman some medals or something?
Maybe make her the first woman knight?
If that isn’t possible…
MAYBE CAN WE STOP TAGGING MARTHA HATE?
Just an idea.
