Warm-up sketch for today x
Wait, so you don’t want to see a musical about a trans woman of color stage star in the 1920s? Then you won’t need to click on this link. For all the sensible people out there, here’s the indiegogo:
Steven Moffat has said that calling Peter Capaldi’s incarnation the ‘Twelfth Doctor’ is wrong.
Speaking in SFX magazine #251, Moffat said: “I’m just going to throw this continuity grenade back at Doctor Who fans and say, ‘You are all wrong!’ He has never called himself the anything-th Doctor in the show.
“If the Doctor was a real person and walked in here, and you said, ‘Which incarnation are you?’ he’d have to think, just as you’d have to think about how many houses you’ve lived in. He never thinks of himself as a numbered Doctor. The Twelfth Doctor means the twelfth actor to have played the lead in Doctor Who. That’s all it means. There is no such character as the Twelfth Doctor and never has been.
“It’s a long time into the show before any such nonsense ever comes up. It’s purely us lot, us fans, wittering on about calling him the Third or the Fourth Doctor – which is actually quite an unpleasant thing to do. It doesn’t feel right at all when you type that. I had to do that for the [50th Anniversary] special. It was the Tenth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, and it felt like a betrayal, in a way. But what else could you do?
“Out of curiosity, I looked at what they did in ‘The Five Doctors’. They didn’t number them at all. Do you know what they called them? The Hartnell Doctor, the Pertwee Doctor…” x
From “The Lodger”:
(The Doctor head butts Craig.)
(There is a very rapid montage.)
CRAIG: You’re a
CRAIG: You’ve got a Tardis.
DOCTOR: Yes. Shush. Eleventh. Right. Okay, specific detail.
Admittedly not written by Moffat but IN HIS SEASONS, so you’d think he’d remember it.
Actually, even better, HE LEGIT REFERRED TO HIMSELF BY NUMBERS IN THE MOST RECENT EPISODE,when he’s explaining to Clara why he can’t regenerate and bullshits: Well, number ten once regenerated and kept the same face. I had vanity issues at the time.”
From The Five Doctors, where Davison and Hartnell (well, Hurndall)’s Doctors first meet:
SUSAN: Is he really-?
DOCTOR 1: Me? Yes. Yes, I’m afraid so. Regeneration?
DOCTOR 5: Fourth.
DOCTOR 1: Goodness me! So, there are five of me now!
Didn’t look very hard, did ya pal
The next time a man starts yelling at you, cut him off and tell him you just can’t talk to him when he’s being so emotional.
I have done this and can confirm that is a LOT of fun to watch them implode afterward.
Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.
did anyone else see the edward snowden interview in the guardian about two days ago where he said that most of the NSA agents doing checks through people’s data are men aged 18-22 and that when they access photographs of attractive women naked they all send them to each other for reasons that are 100% not professional
like, if you have naked selfies on your phone, even if you have never sent them to anyone or moved them anywhere, these fucking mouthbreathers could be downloading them and sending them to all their friends
Matthew Sweet, Inventing the Victorians
At the SDCC panel, John Logan mentioned this book as a “Bible” for reference in writing his scripts for Penny Dreadful.
Suddenly Dorian’s line to Ethan in “Demimonde” about “I’d ask you if you’d heard Wagner before, but you’d just say no” got 1000x funnier.
