Doctor Who is a very serious show.
Except for that time…
- with the 3D glasses
- he was a pirate
- he hugged a dalek
- he was a reindeer
- more 3D glasses
- he was a cowboy
- with the kittens
- he was slim, and a little bit foxy
- he wore a lei
- he did the chicken dance
but other than that it’s a totally serious show.
Thank you, Anon, for your wonderful advice. However, that’s a bit like saying, “Harry Potter is over, so move on. Doctor Who ended in ‘89, so move on. The Avengers were comic books written in the 60’s, so move the fuck on. Sherlock Holmes is a book series that’s so old that the author died more than eighty years ago, so move on before I physically shove you out the door. Come on now.”
Just because an excellent form of entertainment has grown past certain characters or ended altogether doesn’t mean that I have to move on. I get that Rose is gone and Nine and Ten regenerated - but that doesn’t mean that once their run ended and another began that I have to delete their existence from my mind entirely. That would be rather obtuse of you to expect something like that from people.
Furthermore, if we didn’t look back on things that were now finished, we wouldn’t have great things like the LotR movies, new series of Sherlock or even NewWho, because, guess what? The originals ended. And though apparently you have deleted it from your memory (which is a tad Sherlock of you! What a coincidence), other people haven’t.
Humans, in general, are sentimental: we keep our old pictures because we like looking back on the past; we keep that old teddy bear from our childhood, because it meant so much to us when we were kids; we keep old ticket stubs or playbills or books that we’ll never read again, because at some point in our lives, these things came to mean something to us and we don’t want to just throw them away.
Doctor/Rose means a lot to me. I love their run, their character development, their storylines. Just because Nine and Ten are gone doesn’t mean you have to ignore their storylines; in fact, if you do, then you’re doing it wrong, because Eleven’s development is shaped by theirs. They’re the same man, always, Anon, and ignoring that character maturity because you only want to concentrate on Eleven is ridiculous. I started out with Eleven (true story) - he was my first Doctor. But after I finished Series 5, I went back and watched 1-4 and guess what? I love the show so much more for it now, because I understand the Doctor so much more. The growth as Nine becomes Ten and Ten becomes Eleven is gorgeous, and Rose was a huge part of Nine and Ten’s lives, so to ignore her completely is like leaving out a vital ingredient of a recipe. You can still make cake without flour or eggs or butter, but I bet it won’t turn out right.
Do I honestly think Rose/Nine/Ten/TenToo will come back? No, of course not. But I don’t have to move on anywhere. I still blog about Eleven’s storyline, but I also blog about Nine and Ten’s. Nothing you say will ever make me not want to, because I love Doctor Who, all of it. And I refuse to let go of my favourite ships just because one Anon doesn’t approve. There is an unfollow button, my love. Feel free to use it.

This scene highly amused me.
LOL ‘scotception’ XD
The Doctor doing what he does best, in Central Park.
A couple of years ago, Matt Smith made a film with Eva Green which explored the untold trauma of a woman bearing a child who was an exact clone of her lover, who had been killed in an accident.
Now it’s coming out on DVD (May 7 in the UK), and has been retitled Clone.
It looks amazing, and there’s even a naked Matt Smith, if you like. :)
really great foto of Matt. really!
I can feel River’s hair getting bigger… spoilers~
