Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
Spoilers for the Doctor Who finale:
The Doctor turns into a robotic dragon and then seeks revenge on the Zygons while Clara decides to steal the TARDIS, fly to 2nd century Britain, and begin a new life as a bad-ass lady knight.
i recently realized how muCH THIS SONG DESCRIBES THE PONDS
During our last contest giving away our autographed poster from Doctor Who, many of you sent us messages of concern that we were giving up our favorite part of the Doctor Who Tumblr office.
That was so cool and sweet and completely unexpected.
And it got us thinking — what could we put in its place?
And that’s when we realized… we want a new set of autographs. YOUR autographs.
Make a fan sign, a new piece of fan art, a selfie, whatever with your Tumblr username (and a short message if you’d like.)
Post it to your blog using the tag ‘the doctor who tumblr asked for my autograph’.
We’re going to grab the images off of this tag (one per blog) and use them to create a ginormous poster that we’ll put on our wall.
A few tips: keep your message short, use a thick marker or crayon to ensure that it shows up when printed (we think each image will be about the size of a 3x5 index card), and use good lighting so that we can see your face (a simple desk or table lamp should do.)
We anticipate being able to assemble and print this out the weekend of the Doctor Who Series 7 finale but we may push that deadline back if there’s good reason to.
We want EVERYBODY who works on the show who walks through the doors of BBC America to see how much love there is for this show and this fandom.
And thank you!!! We can’t wait to see our new poster!!!
when they finally explain clara they should name the episode “the clarafication”
Doctor Who Cares? - A spinoff in which all is right with the ladies’ storylines and they take custody of the TARDIS every weekend to explore the universe together, defeating misogyny and laughing along the way
LOOK AT HIM
LOOK AT TEN
LOOK AT HIS FACE
HE’S GOING “THAT’S MY GIRL”
“The Doctor has been talked by Clara into taking the two kids she looks after, Artie and Angie, for an excursion, a day out, and he decides to take them to Hedgewick’s World, the biggest, best and most wonderful amusement park in the galaxy, a quarter of a million years in the future, because he has a golden ticket and it gets four people in for free”
while we’re all speculating may I point out that the Doctor appears to incidentally have a family pass for four to an amusement park in his pocket
