TEN IS BACK. DONNA IS BACK. FUCKING WILF MY BESTIE IS BACK. DONNA PROBABLY HAS A KID CALLED ROSE. I’M ABOUT TO START BITING PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!
thinking about donna noble having a child and wilf telling said child all these fantastical stories about the man in the stars named the doctor and how he was in love with a woman named rose, so when this child makes the choice to transition she chooses the name rose for herself. i’m emotional!!!!!!!!
first transgender doctor who companion!!!
WELCOME TO THE SHOW YASMIN FINNEY!
Despite all the speculation happening right now I don’t think she’s going to be playing the same character as Billie Piper’s Rose. I’m very curious to see who she is playing though! I saw someone speculate she could be Donna’s daughter even and YES PLEASE.
I was really, really hoping RTD would cast a trans actress as either the new Doctor or Companion. Just something, anything, to smack back against what’s going on in the British media right now you know? Thank you Russell. God it’s been good to watch you grow.
David Tennant and Catherine Tate are coming back to Doctor Who!
And I have slightly mixed feelings, I admit. If it was just Catherine Tate as Donna coming back I’d be over the moon! But the Tenth Doctor is here too and as much as I like David Tennant, I hate Ten. As you know. I’m sorry!
In the press release Russell T Davies implied it could just be a flashback or a parallel universe but what I REALLY want is for him to finally reverse Donna’s terrible ending, I’m still salty about it over a decade later.
Well at least no-one will have to digitally de-age them.
Ncuti Gatwa is The Doctor
The first ever (main) Doctor actor to be not white and the first ever to be LGBT, I think. Nice! I hope he wears this outfit.
Also shout out to Georgia Tennant for having the best response:
fourteen favourite shots: Doctor Who season three
Ah, season three, probably my favourite of the whole damn show. I absolutely LOVE the shot of the Toclafane swarming over Martha, always have, and the shot of the Weeping Angel showing its true face for the first time had me shrieking. Overuse has killed them but those Angels were terrifying.
Anyway, I have a ulterior motive for dropping this today, because all these shots are from my screencaps site and I stuck a donation button on it today for the first time. I’m not expecting much but we’ll see what happens, yeah?
Tegan and Ace in the DOCTOR WHO CENTENARY SPECIAL
Doctor Who: Legend of the Sea Devils
I think I, like…. most other fans? was watching this to see where the Thasmin relationship went rather than anything to do with the Sea Devils themselves. Sorry Sea Devils.
I really liked that the sad Yaz/Doctor conversation about how they could never really be together took place on a beach, a pretty obvious nod to that other time the Doctor and their companion stood on a beach and talked about how they could never really be together, that was a great touch. Oh hey and River got a mention! It does bug me a little that Yaz never goes, “oh, you say you can’t be with me but you had a wife before? What’s with that?” because you’d think she would.
Anyway yes! Some other things happened in this episode! I saw LOTS of people complaining about the CGI and editing and I agree with them but I also wonder if Covid restrictions played a part in that, in which case I can’t really blame anyone. And it was completely delightful to see Madame Ching as a Doctor Who historical celebrity, pirates are great and female pirates are even better.
All that being said the Next Time trailer is the only thing anyone’s talking about right now! Have a look and you’ll see why!

Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill Fought for Thirteen/Yaz After Seeing Fandom’s Passion for the Ship
This is I think the only time I’ve ever seen a sapphic ship happen because the fans were gunning for it, and happen with so little drama to boot. I’m grateful but dang, mind BLOWN.
