Steven Moffat Appreciation
One of the most touching tributes to come out of the Doctor Who 50th special was the one to the fans through the character of Osgood. There, in the background of what was the most important negotiation in history, without anyone noticing, Osgood saved the world.
She could have easily sabotaged the Doctor’s plan by telling Kate to check her pockets, but instead of choosing to divide, Osgood chose to be kind. Becoming the bridge, the one who was willing to connect with what everyone had been so afraid of.
She had been neither cruel nor cowardly. And I think that’s why Steven wrote her in wearing the scarf. Because, really, anyone, anywhere, through kindness and courage, can be the Doctor. If that’s not the greatest tribute to the fandom, I don’t know what is.
The Doctor’s story never ends..
~ This is what I love about this show, the constant change and renewal. Even though it’s sad to see an actor go, it’s always fun to see the Doctor’s new face and character come into it’s own.
It’s exciting! ;-)

I for one am glad there’s no spoilers, but the trailer will be put out eventually and this “tragedy” will be over, thank goodness.
A little something I made for my 8.000th post :3
Yaaay, beautiful! :)
Thank you! Very pretty!
What can I say, McGann gives great Doctor! Plus, Grace was one of the few assertive female companions with the ovaries to ask him to stay with her, rather than the other way round. Good on her! We need those confident female companions in Doctor Who more often.

I’m obsessive about the kind of melodrama of getting through the days and trying to make them good and funny and a happy experience. But my feeling towards the fans is that they delivered me from darkness.
