How do Time Lords even get married or deal with marital problems like
"It’s like I don’t even know who you are anymore! You… You’ve changed, Harold"
"WELL NO BLODDY FUCKING SHIT I GOT HIT BY A BUS SHARON!"
And what if you and your spouse both regenerated while you weren’t around each other?
"Who the fuck are you? This isn’t your house?"
"I fucking live here."
Also I love how sharon and harold are just obviosuly gallifreyan names.
The Doctor, in Deep Breath.
But the thing is, Clara does know what that’s like. They didn’t address it in the episode, but it’s still important to note. The entire time she was with Eleven, that’s how he made her feel. He looked at her and didn’t see the person she was, he didn’t see the brilliant woman standing right in front of him. He saw Oswin from the Asylum, or he saw Clara the barmaid/governess. He saw a mystery waiting to be solved, a big knot waiting to be unraveled. The Doctor looked at her and saw so many things, some scary, some unfamiliar, but he never saw her. Eventually she called him out on it: “Well, whoever she is, I’m not her. You want to travel with me, that’s fine, but as me, not a bargain-basement stand-in for someone else. I’m not going to compete with a ghost.”
Now the Doctor has regenerated. He’s let down his guard in the most intimate way possible - he’s let her see, in a physical and psychological sense, just how old he is. He’s stopped trying to impress her, stopped “flirting” as it were, and is finally willing to drop all pretense - and she’s not having it. The same way Clara had to compete with her own ghost, now Twelve has to compete with the ghost of Eleven, and it hurts him so much. I think Twelve isn’t only hurt because he feels Clara won’t see him for who he is now, but he feels betrayed because Clara once asked the same of him and now she won’t return the favor when he needs it most.
does this also explain why her character was a bit flat in season 7? because we were seeing Clara through the Doctor’s eyes? She was Souffle Girl and Victorian Clara, “a mystery wrapped in an enigma” and now that the mystery is solved and the veil has lifted, her character is more well rounded. Vastra herself said she was keen to see what Clara would be really like when, “the lake was ruffled”(via lumos5001)
I want the Doctor to take a kid as his companion.
A 14-15 year old kid who’s parents are fighting, has few friends, bad grades, and feels like complete shit before the Doctor comes.
No kissing, complicated relationships, confusion or stuff like that, just the Doctor taking a kid who doesn’t see much out of life for a ride.
I would cry
97% sure that the doctor and clara are essentially teenage girls when they see a hot guy in public
petition for the next companion to not be a white girl in her 20s who crushes on the Doctor
petition for the next companion to be a grumpy chinese-american grandma who complains about plot-holes and knits the doctor horrific time-travel-themed sweaters to wear when she thinks it’s cold out (most of the time)
