Et je ne sais plus si tu en vaux la peine C’est plutôt dur d’en être certaine Ce soir, ne m’oublie pas Je t’attendrai au moins le temps de dire Que j’ai voulu prendre le plus grand risque

Que j’ai voulu prendre le plus grand risque

i really love analyzing/talking about doctor who in addition to reblogging pretty things, if anyone ever wants to do that it would be cool xx


 It’s like I’m trying to tell myself something. Like I’m trying to make a point. But what is so important that I can’t just tell myself what I’m thinking?

my thoughts on series 8

Rose Tyler: You know the sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning? That sound brings hope wherever it goes.

War Doctor: Yes. Yes, I like to think it does.

Rose: To anyone who hears it, Doctor. Anyone. However lost. Even you.

On one hand, I love series 8 of Doctor Who. Every episode has been a powerhouse. The storytelling, cinematography, acting, humor, editing, costumes, sets, special effects— I could go on— are incredible. In terms of production quality, it’s gorgeous. It’s also dealing with complex issues that have been present for the show’s whole run and that haven’t been explored so deeply, such as heroism, addiction, goodness, codependence, independence, and escapism.

But I also feel something missing. It’s not that I want it to be less intense or to take the almost dangerous, volatile quality to each episode— I loved the underlying “darkness” in series 5 and 6; I love an edge and mystery to characters. It’s the hope; it feels so far gone. I’m kind of as lost as the Doctor and Clara are and that’s weird for me. Clara’s an addict at this point, somewhere I don’t think anyone anticipated she would go. And that’s okay, she’s a ‘real,’ complex character. Her story scares me, though, and not in a “dangerous alien scenario” way. The Doctor has never been good at telling his companions when they need to slow down— that’s been established since the first episode. He lost Rose, Donna, Amy, and Rory (and so many classic companions) because he desperately loved and needed them and was terrified to leave them behind. Clara still feels different than any of them. She’s more sure of herself than any other New companion we’ve seen, yet so lost. I think she’s struggling to find the Doctor within himself, especially after she found it so easily with his previous incarnation— however right or wrong that was. Her experience with this Doctor is radically different than with his last face, and she loves him, but can she trust him when she, as someone addicted to this life, can’t trust herself? I don’t think she can. She can trust Danny, but she purposefully shields herself from him so she won’t have to stop running. I don’t trust her to know when she’s hit her limit and I definitely don’t trust the Doctor to keep her safe. This series isn’t about adventures as much as it is about characters, which is scarier and more intense than anything we’ve seen. I love how brilliant it is, but it’s bleak. I miss the hope. It’s really selfish, but I want them to rediscover the sound the Tardis makes.

I know that’s not the point of TV. It’s not made so the audience feels safe. The Doctor isn’t even a hero, really. But what keeps me so in love with Doctor Who is the hope. I’m losing that in series 8 and I’m not sure I like it. I trust the writers will bring us a fantastic end of the series, but at this point I am still struggling to find that hope and love for humanity that I found so intrinsic to the Doctor and his journeys. I both hate and love that this is happening.

It’s the oldest story in the universe. This one or any other. Boy and girl fall in love, get separated by events - war, politics, accidents in time. She’s thrown out of the hex or he’s thrown into it. Since then they’ve been yearning for each other across time and space. Across dimensions. This isn’t a ghost story, it’s a love story.
