on the plus side, I found something that finds your untagged posts if you want to go back and ya know
"nerd" and"loser" were like hard hitting insults in the early 2000’s and now they are used as affectionate terms we have truly come full circle
Sorry, but no, we did a 180. A full circle would mean we went back to them as insults
- Passed the Bechdel test with flying colours.
- Challenged gender roles: Journey is a soldier, fierce, ruthless, career orientated, ready to get the job done; Danny Pink, although framed as a ‘ladies’ man’ is painfully shy when interacting with Clara, cries over a remembered death, finds the expected traditional make gender role of ‘ladykiller’ uncomfortable and difficult to deal with.
- Let’s be honest Danny Pink is the most interesting, relatable, likeable, and realistic male character since Moffat took the helm of Doctor Who.
- Clara Oswald is a bloody good teacher.
- Clara Oswald is a career woman.
- Clara Oswald reads The Guardian.
- Gretchen Alison Carlisle.
- Journey was possibly lesbian or bi or pan. Simple easy normalising representation. The type I enjoy.
- The Doctor does not like guns. He does not like soldiers. He does not like the military…
- But he’s also portrayed as a hypocrite, and his words and sentiments are questioned by Clara.
- Complex exploration of the Doctor’s moral core while keeping him both empathetic, unpredictable, and shockingly (at times) alien.
- The most amazing slow motion sequences and CGI.
- A return to the story arc of this series.
- Complex exploration of hatred, vengeance, mercy, empathy, and hope.
- The interior of a Dalek. Need I say more?
- We are inspired to show compassion for the monster/villain of the entire show and to hope that somewhere inside it is the capacity for growth and change. If that’s not the message of Doctor Who, then I don’t know what is.)
