Rereading “Hamlet” for the umpteenth time, this time for AP Lit. Actually, it’s legitimately my favorite Shakespeare play; I memorized Hamlet’s entire third soliloquy the summer after eighth grade because, you know, I’m me. AND IT IS JUST WORDED SO GORGEOUSLY.
But, of course, everyone dies by the end. Kudos, William. Kudos.

Dear my Hamlet cast,
Here is a letter to you.
Love,
Your Director

SHERLOCK HOLMES 3 NEWS!!

“We like BIG movies,” Downey says of Team Downey, which he runs with producer wife Susan (Levin) Downey. “We are working on a Sherlock Holmes 3,” he says, without providing details. 

(From RDJ’s interview published in the Toronto Sun, August 27, 2014)

Lots of other good news in the interview, too, but that was what we focused on!

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.
Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.
He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.
Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

I love you for putting this into words. I had not been able to adequately express it.

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.

What? Break it down to the most excruciating detail? Making things up in your head that the actors didn't even notice doing? It's sad

whovianfeminism:

Normally I’d stop responding to people like you after making my first pithy remark, but I have to admit that I’m fascinated. You don’t actually think episode reviews are something that Tumblr made up, do you?

Like, do you think we’re the first ones to look at the details of a plot and think about why the writers wrote an episode the way they did? Do you think we’re the first ones to pay close attention to the way an actor plays a part, and think about why they interpreted the role the way they did?

You think it’s sad that people do this? Seriously, there’s entire industries around doing reviews for everything. People get paid ridiculous sums of money to review movies, TV shows, and all kinds of products. People make their careers out of doing this. Have you never heard of Roger Ebert?

Now, I’m no Roger Ebert. This isn’t my career, and I’m not making ridiculous sums of money to do this (obligatory Patreon campaign plug here). This is my hobby.

But for a hobby, I’m doing pretty damn well. I’ve found a great community who are always willing to talk feminism and Doctor Who with me. I’ve had my work published in an anthology. And the university I just graduated from is funding my entire trip to London next weekend so that I can present my paper discussing feminism and Doctor Who at a symposium.

Yes, you’re right, my life is very sad. I’m going to be crying for hours on my free flight to London, drinking my free wine, so that I can hang out with awesome Whovians for a weekend in London, for free.

As an actor, allow me to add another dimension to this. We know our scripts. We get how each line is written and why. If our work isn’t stand-alone, we know everything there is to know about the previous related works. So what we tumblr reviewers are saying isn’t anything new at all. The actors know it. They even know it better because they have the scripts for the rest of the season, so they know how what they are saying is going to interact with things their character is yet to say and do.

what happened to this doctorwhen did we go from saving everybody to sacrificing people who you promised that you could save, people that trusted youwhen did the doctor get so obsessed with proving that he is right rather than actually trying to save people or change things for the better, he has to be the one to say I told you sowhat happened to nobody is unimportant and every life matterswhy is the doctor changed so much that his morals are different, people are indispensable all of a sudden


Its so beautiful though.
