okay i have somehow forgotten this. when on earth did they get divorced?
well they split up offscreen before AotD and Amy signs the divorce papers in the beginning of the ep
PA: Your husband is here.
AMY: Hmm. I don’t have a husband.
PA: Oh, well, apparently you still do.
RORY: You have to sign these.
AMY: And then we’re not married?
RORY: Just like magic.
then all their problems are sorted out in 10 minutes at the end of the ep and they get back together. it’s a damn mess so i don’t blame anyone for forgetting it ever happened

UUUUUUUUGH that fucking b.s. about “boys pick on girls they like”, I HATE THAT ALWAYS, it’s that boys-will-be-boys mentality that leads to men who abuse women.
yes!!! that’s exactly what i thought when i heard them say it on this podcast, it’s just such a gross mentality. and the way they’re talking like danny is so dehumanising, like wishing death on him for standing up to twelve
asked: Twelve/Clara shippers???? IS THIS REAL? I MEAN WHY.
i don’t know how much more explicit Deep Breath could have been lmao, i mean i hated the way they did it, because it pretty much had a go at women for daring to ever find the doctor attractive, but i thought the stance was pretty clear that they’ve decided to pair clara off with danny and make her relationship with the doctor strictly platonic
but people see him insulting her appearance and then go ‘ah it’s like when you’re little and boys picked on the girls that they fancied’ or whatever? :/
and despite all those embellished quotes or whatever, pcaps did confirm that the age gap was something he had an issue with and so didn’t want any flirting, seeing as how he has a daughter that age
Anonymous asked: I stopped watching dr who half way through 11 and saw so many spoilers that I was thankful to get outta there. But with 12 I'm super interested again, could I start watching from 12 without having to trudge through 11.. I just hate his face and how he treats everyone.
lol i hate his face too, i feel that anon
hmm.. i would say go for it! twelve’s character is completely unconnected with Eleven’s, if anything, he seems like a natural progression from where Ten was at the end of his life. even Clara’s life in S8 is unconnected to her time with Eleven because she became a teacher in between offscreen
all you really need to know is that in the 50th the Time War was retconned so that his species was never destroyed, but they’re in a pocket universe or something, but even then, that hasn’t really been a feature of S8 so far
one of the worst things about amy/rory was how shit at communicating they were to the point where amy kicked rory out of their home and divorced him without even telling him why
i for one am happy that danny is being insistent that clara is honest with him and that she communicates with him, it’s not controlling, it’s laying the foundation for a healthy relationship
asked: I keep seeing people go "ohHHhh my god danny YELLED AT HIm in his HOME!1!!" like twelve hadn't spent the entire episode harassing danny at work
twelve: endlessly insults danny even before he knew he was dating clara, repeatedly refuses to accept that he is intelligent enough to teach maths, mocks him constantly, judges him when he knows absolutely nothing about him because of some poorly conceived prejudice, treats him like total crap the entire episode
fandom: *crickets chirping* *tumbleweed*
danny: calls twelve out
fandom: oh ymgoDO OGH MY GOD THIS IS FUCKED UP THIS IS SO FUCKED UP HOW DARE HE, THE VERY NERVE OH YM GOD HE HAS NO RIGHT TO SPEAK LIKE THAT TO POOR TWELVE, CAN DANNY NOT SEE HOW HURTFUL HE’S BEING OMHY GOD I HOPE DANNY DIES
Title: THIS IS HALLOWEEN (like youve never heard)
The Queen asked ministers for a poverty handout to help heat her palaces but was rebuffed because they feared it would be a public relations disaster, documents disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act reveal.
Scrounging termite. Kill it with fire.
Meanwhile David Cameron has announced plans to scrap Job Seekers Allowance and Housing Benefit for 18-21 year olds. I wish this was a sick joke, but it’s not.
It’s amazing that their response is “this would be bad press PR” and not “this is really fucked up,” which shows that they would probably do it if they thought no one would notice.
i was killing time between lectures today in waterstones and after recovering from seeing the john hurt time war book sitting there bold as brass, i picked up a copy of ‘Doctor Who - The Eleventh Hour: A Critical Celebration of the Matt Smith and Steven Moffat Era' out of a sense of morbid curiosity
to be met immediately with a paragraph saying that Rose/Martha/Donna were meek and submissive to the Doctor’s masculinity, while Amy is ‘post-feminism’ and then had the quote from Karen saying that both she and Amy have never experienced sexism/that feminism isn’t necessary for them etc etc
