Possibly, I'm Insane

It depends on my mood

@angiefsutton replied to your post “Thanks for your review of Deep Breath! I really liked it too, especially Clara - great ep for her. But the thing that threw me off was that Clara being the Impossible Girl means that she has seen every regeneration of the Doctor’s ever. Multiple times. So I didn’t understand why she was so freaked by his regeneration or his age. She has seen and saved Doctors older & meaner than him. I would have thought she’d have been the BEST PREPARED companion ever. Felt like they lost her backstory??”

I was actually more thrown by her not knowing who Amy was - I mean, didn’t they hint that she had at least SEEN Amy (esp during “Asylum”). His going through not being recognized hit all sorts of Quantum Leap swiss-cheese feels for me ;-)

I took Clara’s “Who?” in response to the Doctor’s statement to be more of a “YOU DID NOT JUST SAY WHAT I THINK YOU SAID, DID YOU?” type of “Who?” ;-)

Anonymous asked: I don't know if I'm going to like 12. And I think that's in the writing, not in the acting, because let's face it, Moffat wrote a 12 who ran away (then showed back up in a borrowed face, ew) And Peter Capaldi made that terrifying. He wasn't established in this episode. I can't complain too much, because I love episodes that sort of show what a companion is made of, but Clara's proved herself (I think), so why that again? We need to trust the doctor as much as his companion does. I can't yet.

I think Clara feels the same way as you, though. I think she’s really hesitant about trusting him completely. She’s getting there, but I felt like she feels like she needs to be won over, too. And I don’t think that’s necessarily bad. In fact, I think they might be going for that. They obviously want this Doctor to feel a bit darker and scarier, like more of a loose cannon, which I think could be interesting.

Congratulations to the Sherlock team! The show won 7 awards and is the biggest winner of the Emmys 2014!

YOU GUYS. 

Let me just say something. 

I have violently loved three shows in my life: The West Wing, Doctor Who, and Sherlock. I have *never* had a night at the Emmys of such utter triumph, because for all of the Emmys that The West Wing won, Martin Sheen never won one, and so there was never that perfect joy. 

Last night’s Emmys? BEST EMMY CEREMONY OF MY ENTIRE FANGIRL LIFE AND I WILL NEVER, EVER GET OVER THE WONDER OF IT, OKAY? I WILL STILL BE TALKING ABOUT IT YEARS FROM NOW, OKAY? PLEASE BRACE YOURSELF FOR A DECADE FROM NOW WHEN I AM WRITING IN GOD KNOWS WHAT FANDOM BUT I AM STILL TALKING ABOUT WHEN SHERLOCK WON ALL THOSE EMMYS. 

Also, today was the first day of classes and whoever timed that POOR TIMING, okay?

Someone said that if you reverse the dialogue, it’s basically the same. Of course, then I had to try that. It’s. So. True. I didn’t even realize until now that they were both doing that to each other, and they didn’t see how it was affecting the other. Clara I bet barely remembered Oswin or ClaraOO, maybe not at all. The whole time, Eleven thought of her as a girlfriend, or at the beginning a good friend. But he mentioned a dead version of herself, and I bet when she said “I never thought you were,” she meant it. She probably thought the Doctor was keeping her because he wanted to be reminded of the mysterious girl who he mentioned, but even though that hurt, she loved him enough to stay with him. Then, Twelve probably thought all Clara wanted was Eleven when she was starting to see him as a new person, yet the same one at the same time. He was prepared to let her travel with him for as long as she wanted, no matter if all she wanted was Eleven; because even still, he’s still a little bit of Eleven, and he couldn’t possibly leave his impossible girl.

I didn’t think about this at all, and I’m totally fascinated by it.
