This feels important and currently relevant.
India Fisher (Charley Pollard), Paul McGann (Eighth Doctor), and Conrad Westmaas (C’rizz). Divergent Team TARDIS…you know, sans TARDIS.
Photo absolutely not mine, but I love it.
- 'dumb blonde' was literally the opposite of what they were trying to get across
- a lot of her character and story comes from her showing she’s much more than a ‘dumb blonde stereotype’ which is what the doctor basically regarded her as when they first met
- seriously so much of her plot is just devoted to showing just what a caring, selfless person she is
- to the point where she’s ready to give up her life without a second thought for the safety of others
- despite this, she /considers/ herself a ‘dumb blonde’ and there are occasional hints that she’s very conscious of what other people think of her
- she’s a major influence on three’s character and they make a point to show how she’s helped him develop into a friendlier and more hopeful character
- she’s funny
- she’s brave
- she’s optimistic in a very endearing way
- the episodes she’s in tend to be very fun and some of the most creative, in my opinion (the green death, carnival of monsters, terror of the autons, and the daemons, just to name a few)
- she’s a great foil to about every other character on the show
- going on that, her relations to the other characters (especially the doctor) add a lot to the episodes she’s in
- katy manning is a wonderful actor and she just shines in her portrayal of Jo
- I think she has one of the most well-acted, lovingly written, and just all around perfect departures the show has ever had
- her companion chronicles are some of the best and katy does the voices perfectly
- (rose isn’t a ‘dumb blonde stereotype’ either)
- She’s fab as hell
- don’t ever insult jo grant
- what show are you even watching
TPG: Favourite Magical Item: Time Turner
As from this moment, the Triwizard Tournament has begun.
A projection recovered from The Maxtrix of a possible alternate timeline where the Doctor discovers that, not only is he half-human, but there’s a little more to his rivalry with the Master than he truly realised.
The Time Lord Council of Record Keeping apologises for loss of quality. The Matrix has suffered great damage following the time war and transmission and conversion has added to this loss of quality.
Fun fact: this is taken from a recording of Paul McGann’s audition for the 1996 reboot of Doctor Who that the TV Movie was supposed to act as a backdoor pilot for. I could never hear all of it in the original, so I’m glad to hear a clearer version with good background music.
It was really hard to clean up and keep it coherent. That audition tape was really low quality.
With thirteen silver pieces three men can change their stars.
Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker
Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.
(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)
It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve
when she’s boredsometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.
But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.
STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT
Can we just appreciate that this is a thing that happened
Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we’ll avenge it.
