I was talking about diversity in the media with my family and my brother interrupted and was like, “just so you know I’m okay if there is no diversity in horror movies because that helps me sleep at night if I just tell myself that it only happens to white people”
MADAME VASTRA AND JENNY ARE JUST SO GREAT TOGETHER LIKE KDHFKJSHF

and then there’s Strax
All I want in life is for these three to get their own show.
Looks like the screenshot of a new Disney Channel series
"She’s 15 and an aspiring singer"
"and she’s a gorilla"
"And now they are STEP-SISTERS"
"Life will NEVER be the same for Madison and CoCo"
"Also for some reason its a secret and they dress CoCo up like a human to go to school"
“MONKEY BUSINESS. ONLY ON DISNEY CHANNEL”
- Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
- Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that
Overture to a post.
In a sudden shocking moment, I saw Clara Oswald, (The Impossible Girl/puzzle to be solved/proud leaf owner), evolve into a RTD style fully fledged, three dimensional, actual human being with her own agency, and her own very important part to play in the tale.
The best part of the episode, in my opinion, was seeing Clara face off (geddit?) against the lead droid/robot/cyborg. Jenna must have had about ten whole minutes to herself. She certainly was gifted a massive chunk of the episode to carry, and not only did she lift the show, she brandished it heavyweight style above her 5’1 Victorian-attire-clad body.
Suddenly Clara becomes clear. We know her. She’s brave, but very scared. Her bravery seems to kick in with the adrenaline, and until then she staves off the rising terror with sarcasm and snappy banter. If you want Clara Oswald at peak condition, at her very very best, you threaten to hurt a friend. Because she never runs out on the people she loves. Even if they seem to have run out on her.
The flashbacks to Clara’s first day teaching at a school made all the difference to my interpretation of her. Seeing Ms Oswald have her usually in-control and optimistic persona challenged as we see her becoming ruffled and losing patience, makes her so much more human. Although she is often labelled ‘bossy’, I see a young woman desperate to be taken seriously, and to break away from her reputation as ‘sweet little Clara’. She means business, she has ambition, and I respect that in a woman.
Think of all the little girls watching Clara this episode. Maybe they want to be braver. Maybe people laugh at them because they’re girls whenever they try to take control. (I think a lot of us have been there). Maybe there are young women watching that are fighting to maintain their kindness and compassion but also navigate the professional world.
I REALLY LIKE THIS NEW DOCTOR SO FAR AND IM SO HAPPY THAT I WANT TO CRY BECAUSE THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS OF MY ENTIRE LIFE AND IT WAS CRUMBLING TO SHIT AND IT SEEMS TO BE COMING BACK AND CAPALDI IS FUCKING MAGICAL AND THE WRITING WASNT SHIT AND CLARA WASNT BEING A FUCKASS AND IM JUST REALLY EMOTIONAL OKAY SORRY(via itsraininbritishmen)
