Lizzie Mahoney objects to the show’s depiction of women
I wrote a thing :)
Get out of my brain, this is EXACTLY what I’ve been saying since the second half of series 6. Well worth reading. Thank you so much for writing it!
DW Confidential Rewatch: 4x04 Send in the Clones
Wow. I’m sure you’ve all seen this girl’s fantastic tardis dress floating around here the last week or so. She hand painted the inside and everything, and she just looks plain great. But of course, I see it posted on facebook, and the slew of comments begin.
I don’t think it’s a mystery as to why I, as a bigger girl, spend the week before a convention crying because I’m so nervous about what people are going to say about me just because I want to dress up and have fun like everyone else. And there is something really, really fucking wrong with that.
This girl is as beautiful as she is clever! If we on Tumblr are only good for one thing, it’s turning situations like this around! Let’s signal boost this and get it back to her so she knows how much we love it! ALLONZ-Y
Some need a reality check preferably with a baseball bat THIS FUCKING AWESOME and she is gorgeous.
Another reason why tumblr is a better place than Facebook..
1.) Wait, the console on that dress was hand painted? Holy shit. I’ve reblogged the original like 3 times and never noticed that. Pure talent. Jesus.
2.) The Doctor AND Jack Harkness And probably Donna… maybe Rose… Come to think of it, even Martha are going to come for you an they’re going to kick each and every one of your asses clear across the bloody fucking cosmos. How DARE you.
Ignore the haters, this is fucking beautiful.
AU: Castiel as the Doctor (inspired by this)
You might recognize David Harewood best as David Estes, [spoiler redacted] Director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center on Showtime’s Homeland, but while rewatching Doctor Who: The End of Time last night, I shouted “OH SHIT!” at my TV screen (and probably scared the crap out of my neighbors) when he appeared as Joshua Naismith, the billionaire who helped to resurrect The Master. But seriously though, at this point there are so many Brits on Homeland you could tell me Mandy Pantinkin is a North London native and I’d probably believe you.
This is beautiful.

Oh, and if you hate Martha because she mooned over the Doctor for almost her entire season, THAT WAS THE POINT OF HER STORY ARC. If you’ve never fallen for someone who strung you along because they fed off of your adoration, I can’t tell if you’re human. Oh, and if you’ve never wised up and left that person because you realized how they were abusing you, I’m not sure if you’re an adult yet.
By the end, she was the only companion who freely walked away from an emotionally abusive relationship with the Doctor and then she went on to have her own adventures and to save the world on her own terms.
She is the shit.
Donna is still my favorite companion, but PREEEEACH because Martha is way more awesome than most people give her credit for.
I have to warn you guys that I’ve been unusually rage-y lately.
I’m not sure if it’s that I’m getting older or I’m still trying to level out the hormones of my new BC pill or that there have been a lot of crazy things happening in the news lately or if I’m just tired of dealing with stupid…
MARTHA JONES IS THE BEST COMPANION EVER AND I’LL CUT A BITCH WHO DOESN’T THINK SO.
(Also, I’ve gotten to the point where I really miss Rose even though I kind of couldn’t stand her while I was watching her episodes - by S4 I was on board. Well played, Rose. Well played.)
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS POST IS ACCURATE. I’ve been rewatching all of Doctor Who from nine onwards and I thought maybe on a second viewing I’d like Rose more because on my first time through I really didn’t like her until she showed up in season 4, but nope. I didn’t mind her that much in season 1, but I still really don’t like her in season 2. Unpopular opinion, I KNOW. Deal with it. I’m in the middle of rewatching season 3 now and, having seen Torchwood and knowing what Martha goes on to do when she leaves The Doctor…I love her so much more now than I did my first time watching her season. I didn’t mind Amy in her first season either, but the seasons after that just…meh. Martha and Donna, best nu!Who doctor companions 5ever.
Our mission, now that we have chosen to accept it, is simple: We want to make meaningful things go as crazy-viral as Keyboard Cat (and now you have that song stuck in your head).
We believe that the world would be a better place if more people knew more stuff — not only that gay marriage should be legal or that women should have the right to choose, but that people should probably stop ignoring the TQ part of LGBTQ, that Neil Gaiman gives ridiculously inspirational graduation speeches, how Wall Street managed to get an extra $16 trillion (seriously, what the hell?), and that the word “fat” isn’t really an insult, among other things.
So, really, there’s no better place for us to be than Tumblr.
On this here blog you’ll find some stuff that isn’t on our website, some stuff that is, some stuff we made ourselves, and some stuff you might’ve found for us (we’re big on attribution). It’ll be a hodgepodge, but it’ll all be totally Upworthy.
If you’re still not sure what that will look like, we compiled this handy list of aspirations for you …
This is where I work! If you follow me because I post social justice-y type things (or if you follow me for fandom things but are a social justice advocate), you’ll love Upworthy. Follow us!
