I'm a philosophy student that tends to post about really serious things unseriously and about really unserious things seriously.
I was once described as a "beautiful, intelligent iguana".
On Saturday, Doctor Who returns, kicking off the second part of the seventh series with a James-Bond inspired episode that sees the Doctor and Clara whizzing round London on a motorbike. Which is exciting if you like interesting drama with witty banter and thoughtful concepts. But less exciting if you like interesting dramas that include women on their writing teams.
Because season seven of Doctor Who will feature no female scribes at all. Not in the bombastic dinosaurs and cowboys episodes that aired last year, and not in any of the new episodes we’re about to receive. In fact, Doctor Who hasn’t aired an episode written by a woman since 2008, 60 episodes ago. There hasn’t been a single female-penned episode in the Moffat era, and in all the time since the show was rebooted in 2005 only one, Helen Raynor, has ever written for the show.
I do not care if you are:
If you disrespect Donna Noble, I will stab you in your face.
Once upon a time, I was drunk and there was a guy who said, and I quote, “Donna is useless.” … I proceeded to yell, “DONNA NOBLE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE, YOU IGNORANT TWAT!” and verbally berate him (with evidence).
Haha, I do enjoy that my drunk conversations with said person tend to oscillate between this (in which I disagree with him, because, as Nicole said, Donna Noble is great) and then probably stuff about the singularity (which I also disagree with him on, in that he feels that it’s something worth talking about).
I don’t know, I just find that range really funny for some reason.
Also, Nicole, that was a totally badass moment.
