I love this quote. I love this movie.
This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.
Still one of my favorite lines from a movie ever.
^ What they said.
All the Dr Who’s on a running loop…
"Run for your life"

At C2E2 last April, my friends and I collaborated to make one of our dream cosplay groups a reality: a full group of genderbent Doctors! Doctor Who is a series that is close to all of our hearts, and naturally, we got to thinking of how the show would be different if the Doctor was a woman. We all picked our favorite Doctor and came up with a genderbent interpretation - it was so incredible to see everything come together!
I have to give a shoutout to these amazing ladies. All of them are so passionate about costuming and fandom, and they really put their hearts into making this group happen. I felt so honored being able to spend the day surrounded by my closest friends, celebrating a series that has done so much for science fiction and geek culture as a whole.
Not to mention being dressed as female Doctors felt so empowering. We had several people come up to us on the convention floor and tell us how inspired they were to see a male cultural icon like the Doctor represented by a woman instead. And that, I think, is one of the highest compliments any cosplayer can receive; that a costume inspired and empowered someone else. It was hugely flattering to hear and I found myself tearing up several times throughout the day.
This was, by far, one of the most amazing cosplay experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I love everyone in this TARDIS!
Character: Super Girl
Series: DC Comics/ Infinite Crisis MultiUniverse
Cosplayer: T. Jakeru Frost
Yeah, that was a shame. The whole episode - while actually pretty great - failed to live up to the brilliant premise.

For Christ’s sake, Riker, pay attention.
I decided to make this post after a morning watching Freema’s first episode of Confidential. I am a huge fan of Freema and Martha is my favourite companion by miles. I didn’t watch it with the intention of getting this fired up, but I found myself stunned by the difference of approach I was seeing as I watched.
Moffat’s era of Who is far too sexist, heteronormative and non-inclusive to be particularly enjoyable to me, but it really struck me, watching RTD and his team talk about Martha with such love and excitement, that the role of the companion really has changed since RTD left.
I feel the companion has become too much of a side-kick, too much of an accessory, as opposed to the main character, our gateway into the Doctor’s magical world, our link with the beauty and potential of humanity even in the most awful situations.
I realise not everyone will agree with me, and I’m not saying you have to, but I’ve collected some quotes together to emphasise what I think is the toxic difference in the approach of each showrunner in their writing and presenting of the companion, and why we have such an issue with women in Doctor Who at the moment.
"Instead of the intense insight into the mind and world of the companion, we have her being sold as more of a concept than a person, and looks seem to be her primary selling point, at least to Moffat."
In Moffat’s defence, I think this line sums up his entire approach to the show. None of the characters are particularly rich or interesting, including the Doctor. They are designed to serve his convoluted storylines, or they are simply a mix of ingredients combined in different ways to make the show more interesting.
For example, Vastra, Jenny and the Sontaran are a very Moffat team. They’re an interesting mix of familiar ingredients. A very fresh approach after the monotony of the RTD adventures which were frequently a big, bland spectacle of thousands of Sontarans invading Earth, or Cybermen armies, or Dalek armies or whatever he was bringing back at the time.
I don’t think Moffat is particularly sexist or non-inclusive - at least not if you take the messages on face value. The biggest difference in my view is that the show has changed from being very character-driven to being very plot-driven.

kcolrehsdeux asked: Spock emotes in the pilot? Spock emotes in the pilot...
In the first pilot? Yeah. In the second pilot they ended up airing? Uhhhhhh *thinks* A little. But less so. Spock’s emotional progression actually goes like this:
EMOTIONS! …emotions? *whispers* emotions …. no emotions. NO EMOTIONS. NONE. NONE WHATSOE-… okay a little emotion. Some emotions. Emotions at Kirk. Emotions at Bones. Emotions at Uhura sometimes. Sudden understanding of Kirk’s (and Bones’) emotional needs?!??!? EMOTIONAL GROWTH???
And then the last episode which is “I LOVE EVERYONE ON THIS SHIP AND HERE CAPTAIN LET ME HOLD YOUR HAND OH GOD I LOVE YOU”
Except, y’know, in his own little Spocky way. (except the hand-holding, that really does happen)
In the original pilot Majel Barret’s ‘Number One’ character was the logical and unemotional one. When Roddenberry had to back down from having a strong female first officer, her characteristics were transferred to Spock and became a Vulcan species trait.
raggedyadams asked: Mr Gaiman, due to the 1-year embargo I've sworn myself to as protest against certain recent editorial controversies at DC, I regret that I will not be able to read the new Sandman series (or indeed anything by DC or its divisions, whether I'm looking forward to it or not) until next year under pain of forfeit. I'm not happy about it, but it's a matter of principle. What then, sir, can you recommend I read in the mean time? I have copies of both American Gods and Neverwhere for starters.
Anything I tell you would be cruel torment. Do not think about it and I will see you in a year, when you can read the whole thing in one go.
'I refuse to buy anything from DC for one year, then I will rush out and buy everything I've missed out on. That'll learn them.'
Who is punishing who in this embargo exactly?
Well, sir/madam, if you were to read the following article I posted here or watch the Youtubified version here addressing exactly why I am boycotting DC, you’ll see that what I’m doing is not about punishing anyone, financially or otherwise. It’s because I find myself no longer able or willing to support them on basic principles. I don’t like that - it does not make me happy. But since most people who whine about the state of the industry don’t actually do anything about it, or flip-flop the second they see something they like, I decided that it was more beneficial to give publicity to other writers and artists that would normally be crowded out of the market by flashy, vacuous tat like Villains Month and Zero Month before it. And if I cave, I have to deal with forfeits - ones I actively want to avoid.
Does that answer your condescending question?
Hey, I wasn’t questioning your motives, I just didn’t think it sounded like a very effective protest.
Best regards, Sir/Madam.
