- Passed the Bechdel test with flying colours.
- Challenged gender roles: Journey is a soldier, fierce, ruthless, career orientated, ready to get the job done; Danny Pink, although framed as a ‘ladies’ man’ is painfully shy when interacting with Clara, cries over a remembered death, finds the expected traditional make gender role of ‘ladykiller’ uncomfortable and difficult to deal with.
- Let’s be honest Danny Pink is the most interesting, relatable, likeable, and realistic male character since Moffat took the helm of Doctor Who.
- Clara Oswald is a bloody good teacher.
- Clara Oswald is a career woman.
- Clara Oswald reads The Guardian.
- Gretchen Alison Carlisle.
- Journey was possibly lesbian or bi or pan. Simple easy normalising representation. The type I enjoy.
- The Doctor does not like guns. He does not like soldiers. He does not like the military…
- But he’s also portrayed as a hypocrite, and his words and sentiments are questioned by Clara.
- Complex exploration of the Doctor’s moral core while keeping him both empathetic, unpredictable, and shockingly (at times) alien.
- The most amazing slow motion sequences and CGI.
- A return to the story arc of this series.
- Complex exploration of hatred, vengeance, mercy, empathy, and hope.
- The interior of a Dalek. Need I say more?
- We are inspired to show compassion for the monster/villain of the entire show and to hope that somewhere inside it is the capacity for growth and change. If that’s not the message of Doctor Who, then I don’t know what is.)
Truly, I feel like I’m a very happy, outgoing individual. But let’s be honest, I think every single actor in the world is crazy in their own special way. This city is full of dreamers—and that’s awesome. I mean, every city is full of dreamers, but that’s what this city lives on. [x]

Now, say my name.
You’re goddamn right.
I’m gonna say this every time someone asks me why I stretched my ears.
THROWING UP BECAUSE THIS IS REAL
Name a single time before Deep Breath where Clara actually acted like an egomaniac controlling game player.
In a great tree on a great cliff in the Moors lived one such spirit. You might take her for a girl. But she was not just any girl. She was a fairy. And her name was Maleficent.

Ferguson police are being sued for $40mil, +++ some of the officers are facing individual lawsuits for rights infringement. fucking break those cops.
Gunn’s performance was not that of an action heroine or a television genius, and it was not meant to be. Skyler carries the weight of Walt’s actions. Plenty of people hated her for it, Walt sometimes included. But Gunn’s performance pushed both Walt and the people who wanted to see him as a hero to increasingly contrived and ludicrous justifications for treating Skyler like she was a worse person than Walt.
Gunn’s drawn face in the last two seasons of “Breaking Bad” might not have brought about the end of the anti-hero era in television. But Gunn’s performance marked the end of a time when the creators of such shows could get away with writing anti-heroes’ wives as flat, cartoonish characters, or when audiences could get away with worshiping difficult men without encountering strong opposition.
