THIS IS WHAT SHOULD’VE HAPPENED IN THE 50TH
THIS RIGHT HERE
there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out
Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life”
Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth
Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him
that’s why Trelawney made that assumption
The penny drops.
Classic Who: Where to Begin
Eighth Doctor - The Movie
Unfortunately for potential Eight fans this is it, this is all the visual Who you’re getting for him. I’m ridiculously in love with this film, even though it’s not the strongest plotwise or…well, it’s not strong. But it’s got a narm charm to it that keeps me rewatching it again and again. So if you’re trying to work your way through the Classic Doctors, please don’t do yourself the disservice of skipping the movie. I mean, you’ve got one companion unwittingly siding with the Master (I don’t know what the hell Roberts was doing for the most part but the bit where he yells THIS! IS! AN! AMBULANCE! and when he appears in not-quite-full timelord regalia make up for the rest. Seriously though what was up with the weird ‘my son’ thing?) and the other accidentally killing Seven on the operating table not realising he’s not human. You’ve also got Eight being a precious little thing and running around with amnesia and no shoes for half the film and threatening a police officer by holding the gun to his own chest. Seriously, Eight is a precious angel baby and if that’s not worth watching this film for then nothing is. I also just have a lot of Grace Holloway and Chang Lee feelings (and Daphne Ashbrook and Yee Jee Tso are such sweeties on twitter omg).
THE EIGHTH DOCTOR - BEFORE AND AFTER
Tenth Doctor Catchphrases
Clara has conflicting inner needs. On the one hand, she absolutely needs to have control, to exercise boundaries and authority, which stems from her childhood experience of being “lost” and the eventual loss of her mother, who’d mitigated that awful experience. This, in fact, is the root of her sense of responsibility.
On the other hand she needs to travel, to explore, which often takes actually getting “lost” and letting go to really fully appreciate. She gets that opportunity with the Doctor, of course, but for the most part she’s been able to maintain more control over her adventures than just about any Companion before her — in part because she’s willing to let the Doctor take the lead when it’s obvious he knows better than she does; Clara doesn’t wander off, takes the responsibilities he gives her seriously.
She’s been able to balance (and indeed synthesize) these needs because she’s very intelligent — not just in terms of cleverness, but from having a philosophical attentiveness, the ability to see “deeper” than most. She understands how to navigate different social milieus. She understands how to invert her cognitive framework, from seeing that TARDIS is “smaller on the outside” to making Daleks “forget” to pulling a chair outside when the man she wants to talk to won’t come on in.
I would never think of Amy Pond ruminating on how everyone is a “ghost” from the Doctor’s perspective, on the eidos of a soufflé, or the soulfulness of an old woman’s remembrance of falling in love. Clara’s the one who recognizes that just because the Doctor’s learned to forgive himself doesn’t mean that the act committed was ever right, or fated.
So the charge that Clara has no “character traits” just comes out of nowhere. It’s an empty claim.
