Day 25: What’s your favorite Doctor Who art?
It’s not just art but I chose an artist. I am in love with alicexz. The first art I’ve seen from her is the Eleventh Doctor (second last) and just continued from there! She does other things besides Doctor Who like Sherlock, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and even more!
Brace yourselves, Whovians: Long-running cult obsession Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 with a new star, Peter Capaldi, and a new attitude. Compared with Matt Smith’s previous Doctor, Capaldi’s lead character is “a lot fiercer,” says Jenna Coleman, who plays his traveling companion, Clara Oswald. “This man is a total adrenaline junkie.”If you don’t count John Hurt’s one-and-done performance in last year’s 50th-anniversary special, Capaldi is the 12th actor to play the show’s Doctor, a two-hearted alien who travels through space—and time—in his ship, the TARDIS, and periodically regenerates his outward form. The announcement that Capaldi would replace Smith was simulcast last August on Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor. For the most part the casting was received warmly by fans thanks to Capaldi’s Who-tastic résumé, including an appearance in a 2008 episode of the show and in the 2009 spin-off miniseries, Torchwood: Children of Earth. As one EW.com commenter wrote at the time, “If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you already know him.”The Scottish actor—whose other credits include World War Z and The Fifth Estate—then made the briefest of cameos in the anniversary show before debuting properly at the end of the 2013 special Christmas episode. His first official ep—the feature-length season premiere titled “Deep Breath”—is set in Victorian England and promises the return of the so-called Paternoster Gang, a trio of detectives made up of the dome-headed alien Strax (Dan Starkey), the lizardlike Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), and her human wife, Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart).

destroy the idea moffat’s companions only exist to “look pretty” and be “damsels in distress”. don’t fucking let people ignore amy pond saving starship UK, or stopping prisoner zero, or rescuing bracewell and planet earth, or escaping the silurians and saving rory, or sneaking into a school of vampires and bringing down the entire teselecta.
don’t let people ignore clara saving akhaten, or stopping the ice warrior, or saving london and the people of gallifrey.
don’t let people degrade the amazing actresses portraying these characters by reducing them to what they choose to wear. destroy the idea they’re only there to “wear a skirt” and “be a pretty face”. call out this gross behaviour in a fandom that claims to “support female characters”
