Alex Kingston and River Song
Things I frequently ponder on:

If Titan Comics gave River Song her own comic series, could this

be changed to an outline of her TARDIS diary (without looking like a boring white rectangle)?

River Song Doll WIP

my little River Song doll so far….

she still needs a proper face (the lack of eyes is creeping me out!), the hair needs to be cut shorter and then she needs painting

Hopefully ill get this done this week, since i have a couple days off 

I so need to see this when she’s done!

I’m struggling with the 12th Doctor

a-timelord-in-fandoms:

Before anyone cries that I’m not a proper fan or I only watch Doctor Who because I fancy Matt Smith, I’d like to point out that I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan. (Have you memorised the names of every companion in order?)

Capaldi is an incredible actor and is doing some really unique with the Doctor. But he’s not a hero.

The Doctor is supposedly never cowardly or cruel but this Doctor feels cruel. He’s hard to warm up to and like. I don’t want another ‘boyfriend Doctor’ like Matt or David but I do want a Doctor that I can look up to and be proud to say is my hero.

I feel he needs someone from his past who knows him well (like Jo Grant, Ace, Captain Jack, Martha Jones or River Song) to come back and remind the Doctor of just who he is.

The Doctor doesn’t “try to be” a good man. He IS a good man and I want both the character and the show to remember that.

I would love if River came back, believe me!!!

But TBH I know the Doctor has always been cruel. In the first episode, he went to commit cold blooded murder by smashing a man’s head in with a rock. He’s maimed men with a smile on his face. Blown them up, burned them up, shot them, turned common safe items to massive weapons of destruction… He’s the man who destroyed billions of innocents of his own people plus committed genocide of other species. He once swore he never destroy the Daleks as all the humans were telling him to do because it not only being cruel but it wiping out the positive effects it had across the universe, so no Daleks means the destruction of entire star systems.

A few incarnations later, he then destroyed all the Daleks. So he also destroyed all those star systems too.

It’s just like his always telling humans he loves them but he knows very well how cruel and destructive they are; how they’ve made other life forms suffer and have spread both as pioneers and a disease.

He also loves all other life forms. He has never wanted to be Earth only; when he was made to be that, he fought it off. It’s why we’ve had so many non-Terran companions including non-humans. His saying he loves Earth and humans was never meant to be taken as that’s all he’s about.

Cowardly? He runs away all the time. From situations he can’t handle emotionally. Or if you need him but he can’t be bothered, off he goes. Doesn’t matter if you’re his best friend. He goes because he wants to. That’s cruel too.

So the Doctor is very cruel. He’s also done a lot of good; but there’s a reason why he started questioning his way of life a thousand years ago all the way up to now. And why many companions from Barbara and forward have called him on it. Including River who helped him answer the question a few times during their life together.

Just my 2 cents.

I wish I could tell you that you’ll be loved, that you’ll be safe and cared for and protected.But this isn’t a time for lies. What you are going to be Melody, is very very brave.

Imagine River Song making friends in college and together they help to save Luna University from certain destruction.

Imagine Dr. River Song leading a team of archeologists on alien planets and unearthing long buried secrets about cultures, civilizations, and catastrophe.

Imagine Professor River Song taking her students on field trips and when a planet is suddenly invaded the students must help their professor to get everyone out in one piece.

Now imagine cute comedic glimpses into River Song’s timeline where she taunts Zygons or visits her mother for New Year’s and a bottle of wine.

Now sign the petition asking Titan Comics for New Adventures with River Song because imagine the potential!

Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament Kicks Off November 1
By Kevin Wicks
It’s one of our most frequently asked questions: when’s Anglo Fan Favorites coming back? The wait is almost over: the tournament returns November 1.
If you’re unfamiliar, here’s how it works: we pit beloved British celebrities, in tournaments of 32 men and 32 women, against each other, and each week, you’ll vote for the winners in a set of matchups, whittling down the fields until there is one man and one woman standing, the British Man and Woman of 2014.
Now we’re in our fourth year, and the tournament is bigger than ever. Keep an eye on the blog, as we’ll be revealing this year’s men’s contenders before November 1. (The women’s competitors will be announced closer to the start of the women’s tournament on November 28.) But rest assured, Hiddlestoners and Kinglets: Hiddleston and Kingston will be back this year to defend their titles. But which feisty upstarts and mighty veterans will try and dethrone them? Could this finally be the year of Cumberbatch? Can Karen Gillan, buoyed by Guardians of the Galaxy and sitcom success, return to defeat her Doctor Who daughter?
As usual, the choice is yours.
Who should be a contender in this year’s race? Let us know!
