Moffat seems like….really really determined to just throw away any continuity left over from RTD’s run? Because apparently now the Doctor chooses what kind of face he regenerates into? (So what’s the deal with him never being ginger?) And he chose to be young for Clara? (So what’s the deal with his previous two regenerations also being young?) (He also….was deeply in love with Rose until he got a wife out of nowhere and then had a weird thing with Amy but also was definitely into Clara. Yeesh.) Also, I am relieved to see we have received our MYSTERIOUS WOMAN who has FEELINGS for the Doctor and undoubtedly knows SECRETS as well. My only worry is that she may not be able to out-spunk his companion. Can’t wait for this season’s repeated to death catchphrase!
I thought the Doctor had no control over any of the faces he had anyway. And choosing to seem young to attract the attention of a very young woman is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay creepier than happening to look young while befriending a young woman. (It’s like Moffat looks as his storyline and thinks, “How can I make this creepier?”)
I can understand different regenerations loving different people, I suppose, because in some ways they’re different people themselves (although it makes me curious about relationships between Time Lords - did they marry each incarnation separately?).
Hahahaha that is such a good point. We’ve seen a lot of Clara and River but don’t worry, there’s a new mysterious woman who we don’t know anything about except that she’s attrracted to the Doctor. WHAT AN ORIGINAL IDEA, I WONDER IF THIS STORYLINE WILL INVOLVE FLIRTING AND SEXY BANTER.

The biggest thing that I’d say about it is that, despite being written in 1982, it had a (SPOILER) similar ending to Mass Effect 3’s ending. Like similar enough to make me wonder if they were trying to imitate Foundation’s Edge when they wrote the ME3 ending.
Except that Foundation’s Edge did it better by like a factor of like a million.
There I was, battering down the holdings of the infidel south of Rome and just the south edge of Greece, thousands fighting to the north around Constantinople, things are going well. I’m mostly following along with what’s happening to my own troops, but we’re making steady gains and the war is going well overall.
Then, 100% war score. Perfect, the crusade is won!
And then it hands the Kingdom of Greece to me. Apparently I was the biggest single contributor and all that.
Now I gotta find some Greek dude and hand him the kingdom. I want to avoid passing it off to a sibling or anything because then it’d have a strong chance of turning that whole area Norse eventually. I’d rather that the Greeks survived the middle ages.
Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!
Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.
