Not only it had a lot of clues onto the 50th (Summer Falls was released early this year), like having things coming out of a painting, etc. But also it had The Curator.
A lot of us interpreted the scene of The Doctor and The Curator as it implying that The Curator was a future version of The Doctor that has retired. Well, check these quotes from Summer Falls
Kate shook her head. ‘Who are you?’ she giggled.
To her surprise the man shrugged. ‘Not anyone, really. I’m just looking after the museum for a
friend. I guess you could call me the Curator. How does that sound?’ He looked at her eagerly.
‘Not very good,’ admitted Kate. ‘Don’t you have a name?’
‘I’m between names at the moment.’ The man looked sheepish. ‘I am having a holiday from them.’
But also this one:
‘Don’t you like it here?’ The Curator sniffed. ‘How odd. The 1950s aren’t that bad, and this is a charming town. The kind of place you want to settle down and open a little shop with an e. I love a little shoppe. Have another scone.’
You know what that is? THAT IS A DING! The Curator IS the Doctor in the future, already retired, looking after the Museum!
First off this deserves more notes. Waaaay more notes. Like all the notes.
Second this got me thinking. In-universe “Summer Falls” is written in 1954. “The Angel’s Kiss: A Melody Malone Mystery” takes place in and I would assume is published somewhere around 1939 or ‘40 which means so was Amy’s Afterword.
This isn’t a coincidence, in-universe or otherwise. How could Amy write about the Curator unless she had met him? Which means that at some point between 1939 and 1954 she had to have met the Doctor again. She must have.
Jude Law comes face to face with David Tennant. The inevitable happens.
Somewhere, RDJ is crying into his shawarma.
I don’t know if I’ve ever wanted to see two men kiss more than I do in this moment.
They look so shy, like they’re on a date.
Jude is all like, “This could be it. This guy could be the guy.”
David is playing it cool but you can tell by the way he’s lacing his fingers and touching his lips that he’s into him.
What sort of man doesn’t carry a trowel?
My favorite thing about this is the little thumbs up Rory gives in the last panel. He knows he has to acknowledge the Doctor in some way, he has to because if he doesn’t his mate won’t let it go.
He’s like a little kid on the diving board trying to get his parents attention. “Watch me! Look at me! Watch me! Look at me!”
God, I miss the Ponds.
In which Doctor Who is a family show.
doctor who meme - amy’s reading glasses
the amount of sentimentality that the doctor holds for these glasses is extraordinary. those glasses are the only tangible reminder of the good days he had with amy. those glasses were the last source of amusement they had before they had their last adventure together. while he was reading amy’s afterword, he had accepted that amy could no longer be in his life. everything, down to his tardis console, reminded him of what he had lost. but those glasses represented what he missed most about amy; the joy the two of them shared.
Can we talk about this GIF please? Can we talk about how the Doctor isn’t even looking at River when he grabs her hand. He doesn’t have time; He just grabs a hold of his wife’s hand and he’s pulling her away from the Weeping Angels. He grabbed her hand several times in this episode. He kissed her cheek in their first scene together. He healed her broken hand using his own regeneration powers. Personally a part of me wondered if the Doctor had married River to make her happy, but after seeing this episode I knew that wasn’t true. He married her because he wanted to keep her safe with him for the rest of her life. He kept grabbing her hand to keep her by his side, because he’s different now without her. He married her because even though he tries constantly to keep her safe, he knows he’s not safe without her. He married River because he needs her.
in which the Doctor is very heterosexual
'Kay so I found this.
I’m totally not aroused
I am very aroused.
But you know what? I am good.
He was older now, wiser, and ashamed. There was someone he needed to talk to, a great wrong for which he needed desperately to apologize.
Someone please write this so I don’t have to…
I’m bored and snowed in….BRING IT ON.
I’m so bloody bored…
A bunch of you guys wrote to us about this so we went to find the petition.
And we saw that 18,000 people had already signed the most popular one, so we were like, GASP.We’re not sure exactly how planets get named, but this is really cool. And whatever you ended up getting named, we like you, HD 106906 b.
