It’s interesting the only good thing on Monday is coming on Tumblr and seeing tons of pics of this beautiful thing.
I have nothing to contribute so here’s my profile pic full size.
#he never lost it
No, but seriously - this, right here, is Eight. This is how Eight has always been written in the Big Finish audios. When he’s in danger of dying, he gets snarky. There’s even a line about it in “The Resurrection Of Mars” - “he uses it to suppress his fear”. For years and years, this has been a defining feature of this Doctor, and now he’s doing it on our screens.
It’s completely beautiful.
Eight is so snarky it’s ridiculous. Max Warp had me in stitches. I’m insanely surprised that Moffat, aka the guy who thinks the hight of humour is saying that bowties are cool, manages to capture one of Eight’s best traits and does a superb job.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL MCGANN!
Not only is today special because 'The Night of the Doctor', the Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor prequel was released, but it’s also the birthday of Paul McGann, who played the eighth Doctor.
Make me a warrior.
"A Rose With A Thorn"
My tribute to the beautiful Eighth Doctor—whom I love so very, very much. Despite the traumatic circumstances of his regeneration (he woke up freezing in a morgue, for goodness’ sake!), he is bright, enthusiastic, honest, and one of the sweetest and most passionate Doctors ever. Though, at times, the pendulum too easily swings to a darker, colder nature full of snark and weary of battle. Over time he is broken by pain and loss, driven to the edge of insanity and heartbreak, until at last the Time War destroys him. Every Doctor since has had to cope with the memory of what Eight endured…and usually ends up following a similar pattern. I’ve tried to capture that transition, from his beautiful, golden beginning, to his broken, hardened, world-weary end.
~~~IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, THE EIGHTH DOCTOR HAS JUST MADE HIS FIRST TV APPEARANCE IN 17 YEARS!! [link] ARISE, FANDOM! GO FORTH AND EIGHTH DOCTOR!
