"I didn’t want to be Doctor Who in a Doctor Who I didn’t like. I had to be convinced the show was going in a direction I was interested in. I had to think carefully about the level of visibility. My life was blessed, but as soon as this happened I had paparazzi outside my house. People spoke to me before and recognised me, but nothing like this. I had to decide if I was ready to live with that, because once that genie is out of the bottle, it doesn’t go back in. I thought, ‘You’ve loved this since you were a kid, how can you not be Doctor Who?’"

Peter Capaldi, Sunday Times Magazine, 27th July 2014

"It’s graphic shapes," he says, twirling some more. "That’s why being in black is so great. You can make these spidery shapes. It’s like German expressionism or Sixties caricatures. They’re very graphic lines."

"There’ll be no flirting, that’s for sure. It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with. It’s quite a fun relationship, but no. I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments.’ I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant."

Peter, let me (platonically or not) love you, love you, love you for this.

You have my undying gratitude, sir.

"There was a moment as they looked at each other. The Doctor spread his hands as if he was about to embrace [the Brigadier] or some other such nonsense. So the Brigadier straightened his back. ‘Ah, Doctor,’ he said. ‘There you are at last. Spot of bother with these Faerie chappies. Good of you to help us out.’ The Doctor stared at him in utter astonishment. Then he leapt forward and hugged the Brigadier anyway, laughing as he spun him round and round. ‘Stop,’ muttered the Brigadier, trying not to be hugged. ‘Stop it at once, Doctor. The men are watching.’"

"Spot of bother with these Faerie chappies" is the Briggiest Brigism I’ve heard in a while.

Day 25: What’s your favorite Doctor Who art? Make sure to give the artist credit if it’s not yours!
It would have to be this piece by ladyyatexel, posted with her permission (many thanks!), part of her Music of Time piece, and also posted here.  Also, do check out her art tag!
I love the whimsy of this piece, as well as the fact that this is a highly likely scenario—with a talented musician like Jamie on board the TARDIS, plus the Doctor’s own knack for the recorder, it is inevitable that there were jam sessions.

Doctor Who Meme ✖ [1/9] Scenes

Sonnet 18

I love the look on Martha’s face.

Because I bet she read that Sonnet when she was in school.

And the realization that that fucking sonnet is going to be about HER RADIANT BLACK BEAUTY!!!

Martha Fucking Jones gets POETRY written for her that lasts through the ages.

YAAASSSS

The Doctor’s faces are killing me!

I actually find this really great because NOBODY KNOWS who “the dark lady” is.  There are various sonnets composed for/about her, but nobody knows her identity.

We do.

I wonder if Martha ever reads that particular sonnet or hears someone reading it in a movie or on telly and just kind of smirks to herself because she knows it was written about her

i bet she feels really proud for stealing shakespeare’s heart

Doctor Who “Vincent and the Doctor” first aired 4 years ago today (6.5.10). What an amazing Episode! One of my favorites!

Up there in my top 10 by far

FOUR YEARS. HAS IT REALLY BEEN FOUR YEARS???

The best story of the new series, I must rewatch it soon. Still makes me cry. :o

I rarely refer to any non-animated show as “beautiful,” but damn this was a beautiful episode.

If Juliet Landau’s Romana III doesn’t appear in the TV show with Capaldi’s Doctor I will cry.
