Lesley Sharp on David Tennant:
"When Sky is copying people’s speech patterns, we both had to learn the square root of pi to two or three dozen decimal places, but it was almost impossible to keep up with David. His speech pattern, the rate at which he speaks, is phenomenally fast. Really, really quick. He learns pages and pages and pages. And the rate at which he speaks is the rate at which he thinks. Russell explained to me that David’s Doctor has a lot to say, because that’s David. He’s so bright. Isn’t that brilliant though? The things that Russell thinks about and then re-interprets - I think they’re both amazing."

Okay so Twelve’s line from this episode, “Mortuaries and larders - always the easiest to break out of. Oh, I’ve lived a life!”
Has anyone made a post with a gif of that quote, along with a gif of Eight busting out of the mortuary, and whatever the larder reference is? I’d say Chimes of Midnight, but tragically, that’s not actually a visual recording.
I’m thinking the ‘larder’ is from Revelation of the Daleks, but I’m not remembering a scene where Six and Peri escape a pantry?
tbf both the ‘mortuary’ and the ‘larder’ bit were probably callbacks to Revelation, but it’s a moral imperative that we as a fandom use every opportunity to showcase Eight wearing only a bedsheet.
So, the 12th Doctor’s just battled the Daleks on TV. But here’s a chance to see what they’re capable of when he’s not around…
Spanning whole galaxies and centuries, Dalek Empire is an epic story of war, love, deceit, betrayal and sacrifice, featuring truly memorable characters brought to life by an all-star cast.

this looks like mickey walked in on a drunk night partying hard in the tardis
With the reverence of someone approaching a shrine, he steps close enough to affix the note to the door. He doesn’t go inside — he doesn’t want to see it, her trainers under the bed, makeup table cluttered with tubes and bottles, the scent of her everywhere — but he rubs his finger across the place where the note sticks, making sure it’s secure.
He walks away and doesn’t look back. (x)
