Hi Nonny, I am not sure. It’s been around for ages tho, way back pre-Tumblr when LJ was still the place to be. I’m not sure if it was coined there or somewhere else … mrv3000 or oodlyenough or shinyopals or fauxkaren or anyone else (sorry those were the first names that popped to mind) who was in the fandom back then have any recollection of this?

The first person (and at the time only) I recall using it on LJ was lj user humansrsuperior (dunno if she’s on Tumblr) and maybe one or two of her friends… but she had moved onto other, Eleven/River-y pastures by the time Tumblr was getting big, so I don’t really know how/why it became so unanimous over here. On LJ it seemed like by far the most common was some variation on Ten II or Ten2.

Awesome, thanks much!

I’d been plugging for Ten II because of Romana II.  (I still like it. :D)

lmao it’s almost a year later and still one of the things in fandom that makes me the angriest the fastest is people who try to explain the 50th as though anyone who doesn’t like it just didn’t understand it

Personally I love the “but the Doctor (Nine/Ten) still gets to go through all the angst so it didn’t erase anything!”

Oh gee, can they?  Because going through a personal hell for nothing is totally awesome.



Team TARDIS banter while filming the Ten/Rose reunited scene in Stolen Earth
  • Graeme Harper (director of photography): John, watch that your shadow doesn't come over David.
  • David Tennant: Get out of my light, Barrowman! This is quite comfortable, actually…
  • John Barrowman: You can see all my bogies.
  • Graeme: Not so much wincing, David.
  • David: Did you not want a bit of that? It was my best acting of the night!
  • Billie Piper: Oh, this is no time for acting. I could stick my fingers right up your nose, David!
  • David: Like a bowling ball.
  • John: Have you got a moustache, Billie?
  • Billie: [nods] It's low times for Rose Tyler. She hasn't had a waxing strip since she last saw the Earth. Razors are in short supply on the parallel world.
  • -DWM 398 (on the scene where the Doctor is dying on the street after that damn Dalek)

Doctor Who tropes I’m tired of seeing:

  • Strong Sassy Woman 
  • Putting blind faith in the Doctor
  • Marriage = bickering
  • Offensive, inaccurate descriptors when talking about Clara
  • The Doctor reminding everyone he’s smarter than them
  • Recycling old ideas and playing it off as homage
  • Aliens not understanding human customs despite having spent significant time on Earth

i was killing time between lectures today in waterstones and after recovering from seeing the john hurt time war book sitting there bold as brass, i picked up a copy of ‘Doctor Who - The Eleventh Hour: A Critical Celebration of the Matt Smith and Steven Moffat Era' out of a sense of morbid curiosity

to be met immediately with a paragraph saying that Rose/Martha/Donna were meek and submissive to the Doctor’s masculinity, while Amy is ‘post-feminism’ and then had the quote from Karen saying that both she and Amy have never experienced sexism/that feminism isn’t necessary for them etc etc

can we just talk about the biggest plot twist in doctor who history

Can we talk about how I’m still not over this plot twist.

you can see the realization in the doctor and martha’s eyes as they’re smiling and it dawns on them that Jack is going to become a giant face

Just one line and I lost my shit.

School Reunion - Behind the Scenes

Below are excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article in DWM #369

    “THWACK!” is the sound that K9 makes as he collides with a kitchen unit.
    “Hoo-hoo, yessssss!” is the sound that David Tennant makes as he watches K9 collide with a kitchen unit.  He’s the Doctor, so he really should know better.
    “Cut!” is the sound that the director, James Hawes, makes before breaking into a fit of giggles.  “Sorry folks, he’s done it again.”
    “I’m laughing through my tears,” admits Elisabeth, as the cast and crew all collapse in hysterics - except, perhaps, for the producer, Phil Collinson, who has a schedule to keep.  No, wait, Phil is laughing too.
    “Did you catch that, Doctor Who Magazine?” hollers James.
    “If I was a bit smaller,” chuckles David, pointing at K9 (who’d probably be very embarrassed were he a real dog), “I’d get inside him and do this scene myself!”

[Elisabeth on working with David and Billie]
    “David’s a lovely hugger.  He’s very tactile with everyone.  I knew that he had been a fan of Doctor Who when he was a little boy, so that was lovely.  That actually made it a lot sweeter.  And I’m so pleased for Billie, because, as the assistant, you were always totally overshadowed; at last, someone realizes the importance of the assistant.  Billie is very warm, very immediate.”
    “The energy that Billie and David have is remarkable.  I saw David in the gym the other day: he was almost turning summersaults on the ropes.  He’s very fit.  He runs like a bloody bat out of hell.”
