Doctor Who, classic and new. Also home to a sucky fanartist and writer whose friends got sick of her ranting about Doctor Who, and who clearly doesn't know how update bars work. Looms are cool.

When contemporary composers keep adding more and more ridiculous extended techniques to their music

❝ jonpertwee asked: #he's essentially 50%+ of why this show made it past the eleven episode testThat's weird because I love series 1 DESPITE Eccleston. And Rose. I dislike them both but love the series. Weird how people have so many different views and tastes when it comes to Who.

That’s what’s fun about discussing the show with other people (considering they’re respectful, like you are). I never liked Rose, but Eccleston’s acting is why I kept watching the show, even though I had basically decided by the time I started watching that I hated sci-fi and would just watch a couple episodes of Doctor Who to appease my friends (now I’ve seen more than them oops). Anyway, I liked how his stillness and interpretation of silence worked with some pretty big, risky, sometimes silly plots.

I’d really love to hear your opinions, it’s always interesting to see how different people interpret the same media. (P.S. sorry I sounded so authoritative in the tag, I didn’t realise how the tone might come across until now)

all i can really think about right now is sleep, but i know that if i sleep i won’t get homework done and my teachers will hate me even more, but i can’t actually /get/ my homework done because i’m too focused on wanting to sleep

you feel?

How much time do you have between waking up and handing it in ?

For two classes I have about six hours, for the other four I have a good fifteen. Each takes a minimum of an hour.

Imagine a common household object. Now imagine it attached to a stuntman. That stuntman is now the monster of the week. Welcome to Doctor Who.

but why have they styled gallifrey so much like earth

My guesses are:

a) a budget that was literally dirt

b) Gallifrey was meant to resemble/symbolise Earth in several ways, as I recall, so I’m guessing it was styled after Earth to emphasise that
