“There’s a man called the Doctor who lives on a
cloud in the sky and he keeps the bad dreams away.
But he lost all his friends and now he is so very lonely.”
Inspired by the new Trailer, done with watercolors!
I am sorry for the bad quality, it was too huge for my scanner.
“TenToo isnt really the Doctor because he said I love you and the real Doctor never could-“
Whoa, rewind and freeze.
The thing here is, people act and do things differently depending on the circumstances. TenToo is the same man, but he is in an entirely different situation than he was before or that Ten was in that moment.
Before, when he was full TimeLord, he was essentially immortal. He was going to live on far longer than Rose ever would have.
Sure, we all - including myself - love the immortal badwolf!Rose trope in fanfic, where she can stay with him forever and be by his side through all of his regenerations to come, but that simply would not happen in canon. Rose is human, and part of what the Doctor loves so much about her IS the fact that she is human. But this also means that no matter what, he WILL lose his Rose.
I mean, I think falling in love is scary no matter what. Just imagine having that person literally be a part of you, you are who you are because of them, they are seared on your hearts - and knowing they are going to die before you, and quite possibly because of you. So you try to send them away because you’re scared, because it will hurt too much, because you want them to be safe and happy. Because you think you have and will continue to ruin their lives.
The Doctor knows he loves Rose. Rose knows. We know. EVERYONE knows. But if he says it out loud, if he says those three words that mean so much everything would change. They would be together, officially. He would be hers and she would be his.
He spends his nights with her, makes love to her, lets her become even MORE a part of him, and then she dies - that would kill him. Honestly, kill him.
So he pushes it away and runs from it. Because he wants it. Oh God, he wants it so badly. He wants to send his days and nights and forevers with Rose Tyler. But their forevers don’t match up.
Sure, in a sense its cowardly, but its sort of understandable, I think - when you have lost as much as the Doctor has.
So that brings us to TenToo, who literally IS the Doctor. The same soul, the same consciousness. In every way that counts he is the same exact man. Thats what he was trying to explain to Rose on the beach. Like the Fifth Doctor said “A man is the sum of his memories.”
He is him. TenToo is the Doctor. He is the same man. The man Rose loves. But with a few changes, changes that allow him to finally be with Rose the way the BOTH have always wanted.
In this part-human body he can assure Rose that he can stay with her. He can want and he can take, without being afraid of losing it once he has it. All those things that were holding him back before are gone. He can tell her he loves her, he can grow old with her. He is free. Their forevers match up now.
He tells her he loves her because he IS the Doctor. Because he has always wanted to. Because he doesn’t have the reason or the TIME not to. He has one life, one heart that beats only for her. He has always had two, he needs hers to make it through.
Journeys End shows us that the Doctor loves Rose so much that if he had to he would give her up so she could be happy, - even if his sales pitch wasn’t the best, that was his intention - and if he could he would stay with her, he would spend every day of his life with her. And he will, in this universe, in this life. He loves her in every way imaginable.
He is the Doctor, so she loves him too. For what they have been and for what they will become in this universe that is all their own. Because he is the man she crossed dimensions for. Of course she loves him, how could she not?
He is the Doctor. She is Rose. The one adventure they could never have. Its theirs, and they are taking it.
I JUST REALIZED THAT RASSILON BIO-ENGINEERED THE TIME LORDS LIKE DAVROS BIO-ENGINEERED THE DALEKS AND O H MY GOD
rassilon also manipulated the evolution of other species so they would all look humanoid (aka. like gallifreyans) because he’s a xenophobic dick and that explains 99% of the aliens in the series
THE ENTIRE MORAL OF ZAGREUS IS THAT RASSILON IS A CREEP
I really love the fact that everybody looks human (or, Gallifreyan) is actually explained somewhere. This franchise.
Speaking of Rassilon, did we ever get explained his supposed presence in The End of Time? I loathe that two-parter and so I haven’t really rewatched it, but that was pretty weird.
I KNOW. Jesus christ, they’re thorough.
I’ve been wondering that since forever. I assume that they aren’t going to outright acknowledge the audios, but there should at least be an explanation on how they resurrection Rassilon. Last I checked with Classic Who, wasn’t he dead in a tomb? Unless they used the Matrix to resurrect him, if that’s even possible.
Last time in the audios, he was stuck in a different universe, so.
Either way, it’s not too far-fetched to imagine that once the Time War grew more intense, they decided they should bring back their legendary leader and co-founder. I mean, if there’s one thing Rassilon is, it’s ruthless. Makes sense they’d put their faith in him, if they didn’t think Romana was doing a good enough job.
So either they resurrected him from the Matrix (which I’m pretty sure is possible, I mean, they reconstructed the entirety of Gallifrey because Eight had the Matrix in his head), or they popped in and rescued him from the Divergent universe.
They did resurrect the Master during the Time War, so it seems reasonable that, the more desperate they got, the more likely the Time Lords were to resurrect anyone and everyone they thought could help them win. I always assumed that, since they were on the brink of destruction, they had made the decision to bring Rassilon back, since he was the founder of their way of life.
(I just love the idea of Rassilon chilling in the Divergent universe with the Kroka forever, and the Time Lords swinging by to pick him up like parents picking up a kid from school. Except the kid is an douchecanoe megalomaniacal dictator bent on annihilating all matter in his home universe. And what happened to the Kroka? I have questions.)

David Tennant’s Video Diaries: Day One
I kinda want to see a mashup between this post and this one.

[ Doctor Who: Peri and the Piscon Paradox ]
Sixth Doctor - Peri and the Piscon Paradox
In an attempt to prevent a paradox that tears the Web of Time, the Sixth Doctor must trick the Fifth Doctor into believing he’s fighting against a Piscon named Zarl. This involves Six dressing up in a Zarl costume, and Six’s subsequent explanation to Peri about why aliens tend to look … as ridiculous as they do.
Suddenly all of this…
… makes perfectly logical sense. It was gravity all along; we should have known. Big Finish, I adore you and your self-aware humor.

Doctor Who audio drama livestream!
After the season 7 finale, I was filled with so much love and yearning for Eight, and a burning need to share his glory. So tomorrow evening, I will stream my favourite standalone story, “The Chimes of Midnight”, written by Robert Shearman, the writer of Nine’s episode “Dalek”, and a lot of other glorious stories.
Tuesday May 21st - 11pm UK time, or find your local time(the story is two hours long)
“Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring…
But something must be stirring. Something hidden in the shadows. Something which kills the servants of an old Edwardian mansion in the most brutal and macabre manner possible. Exactly on the chiming of the hour, every hour, as the grandfather clock ticks on towards midnight.
Trapped and afraid, the Doctor and Charley are forced to play detective to murders with no motive, where even the victims don’t stay dead. Time is running out.
And time itself might well be the killer…”
It’s a timey-wimey, emotional, mindfucky Edwardian murder mystery, full of hilarious dark humour, with my favourite TARDIS team.
If you’re completely new to the Eighth Doctor or to Big Finish audio dramas, come find out what all the fuss is about. If you’re a seasoned fan, come share in the love!
# HEY GUYS Y'ALL SHOULD ALL LISTEN TO THIS STORY # IT IS BRILLIANT # AND DARK AND GOTHIC AND SO VERY CLEVER # AND IT'S QUINTISSENTIAL EIGHT AND CHARLEY # DO ITTTTT # Doctor Who # Big Finish
Doctor, one day I’m going to be someone that you trust completely, but I can’t wait for you to find that out. So I’m going to prove it to you, and I’m sorry. I’m really very sorry.
I have made a few posts on TenToo. Most of them outbursts of sheer frustration at him being named or people just generally being awful about him.
But I’ve been wanting to make an actual post on why I love the Meta-crisis Doctor and why I truly believe that he IS the Doctor. As well as why I
knowbelieve Rose came to accept him as such.
This subject fasinates me to no end.
