Do you ever think how surreal it is that there is an Internet subculture of young men who wear suits, collect guns and knives, disrespect women, but then watch a children’s cartoon about little fictional ponies and really enjoy it. Like I couldn’t make that up if I tried. How are we going to explain humanity to extraterrestrials at this rate
d o you guys ahve any idea how many bronies hav e sent me hate for this post . do you
Can we talk about how this Doctor no longer follows “Rule one”?
#well yes but that’s not really what’s going on here #because the doctor is dismissing clara’s considered reassurance as a ‘lie’ #and he’s doing it when the person he’s speaking to doesn’t want the cold truth #(in an episode that calls the whole matter of the doctor’s objective judgment and unsurpassed experience into question) #unlike in the eleventh hour when amelia didn’t want to be lied to #twelve is more brutally honest but i think it’s less about not wanting to lie and more about not seeing the reason for it #he’s very oblivious to a lot of social nuances #and that’s exactly why he needs a strong-willed defiant personality like clara because he’d otherwise be insufferable #and i also think that an episode where the doctor is so completely mistaken is far more powerful when it’s this doctor #who admits that he hates being wrong in public #who is as much of a control freak and definitely more of an egomaniac than clara #eleven lied but at least he was honest about it #twelve lies to himself and the audience for the entire episode and we only find out at the end #so yeah #this is a complicated scene (via thebastardofgloucester)
