OK guys. This moment does not have enough love. In fact, it has some unfortunate anti-love that I aim to resolve here.

Yes, this episode heavily reference Girl in the Fireplace. And yes, that episode is pretty much the most anti-shippy thing to happen in canon for Doctor/Rose.

BUT THIS MOMENT IS GREAT AND WE DOCTOR/ROSE SHIPPERS SHOULD LOVE IT TO PIECES LET ME EXPLAIN!!!!

Twelve can’t remember Clara’s name at first. Nor Vastra nor Jenny nor Strax. He leaves Clara in danger and he won’t even give her the screwdriver. He does questionable things—he’s darker, I get that.

But even so, and even though he’s trying to figure things out with the bad guy, and does not have all his memories intact (‘Handles’? Really, Doctor??) he CANNOT leave the bunch of roses on the floor.

The bunch of yellow roses—yellow which signifies remembrance. There are centuries-old ballads (‘Round Her Neck She Wears a Yeller Ribbon’) and old movies (‘She Wore a Yellow Ribbon’) and folk songs (‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree’) all about yellow being the color of remembrance—specifically in all these pop-culture cases, remembrance of a lost love.

And as he’s struggling to remember why droids harvesting parts rings a bell with him, does he look at the droid? No. Does he have flashbacks to women making double entendres with cleavage spilling out? No. (And the eventual reference to MdP is blah blah bland). But what does he do? He twirls the roses and holds them just a little bit closer. This is so reminiscent of the Journal of Impossible Things, where even as a human Ten can’t remember the name of the TARDIS, or the sonic screwdriver—but he keeps drawing roses in his journal and hers is the only face he can canonically put a name to.

Moffat may be many, many things, and do many, many things that I do not particularly like, but this… this is pretty awesome guys. This isn’t anti-shippy at all. This is shippy and sweet and subtle in the extreme.

And I love it and I really think you should too <3

someone give doctor who to literally anyone other than stephen moffat. literally anyone. the set tea lady. i would enjoy the thoughts of 57 year old doris the tea lady and her version of the doctor far more than anything stephen moffat could come up with on his best day. i’m not joking. someone get me doris’s phone number.

I remember all the Doctor Who fanfics I used to read where Rose often got badly stereotyped as a damsel in distress whom the Doctor had to swoop in and save and smooch but the way I remember Doctor Who 90% of their relationship was the Doctor just setting Rose loose on people who had done something to offend them and sitting back giggling in the corner as she shouted

Moffat: Two girls in a romantic relationship?

Moffat: ….. 

Moffat: Oh one of them must be the man.

Moffat: So just write that one as controlling, demeaning, and objectifying like a normal man. Got it.

do you ever just passionately miss the first series of doctor who but not just because you miss Nine but because you miss the monsters and the simple story lines that were new and so interesting and the companions that didn’t need a magic back story to be special and weren’t just a new puzzle for the doctor to solve they were just ordinary people with ordinary lives and taught (especially the young viewers) that anyone can be a hero i just really miss season one okay

Have you heard about Peter Capaldi refusing to act a romantic relationship with Clara? Do you think he'll do well, or be smothered by Moffat?

From what I’ve gathered, Peter Capaldi is a huge fan of Doctor Who that pretended to be a huge Moffat stan until he’d signed an airtight contract, at which point he revealed he hates the direction Moffat was taking the show he loves, plans to systematically undo it to the best of his ability, has been openly mocking and refusing the participate in parts of the script he doesn’t think are true to the character, and insisting that they “won’t chase him off this show,” which is basically saying “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”

I think the new season of Doctor Who is going to be glorious.

I kind of want a show that is just Capaldi on the set of Doctor Who mocking the script and butting heads with Moffat.

isn’t that just The Thick of It except on the DW set?

It’s all yours - Planet Earth. Now that’s a retirement plan. But just you be careful, though. No interfering. I don’t want any trouble. Just… just have a nice life. 
Oh Doctor, I will make you proud.

GUYS, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE.

MR. COPPER WENT ON TO CREATE THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION.

YOU KNOW, THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION WHICH INVENTED THE SUBWAVE NETWORK.

THE SUBWAVE NETWORK WHICH HARRIET JONES USED IN ‘THE STOLEN EARTH’ TO BRING THE DOCTOR BACK TO EARTH TO FIGHT THE DALEK INVASION AND STOP THE REALITY BOMB.

MR. COPPER IS THE BIGGEST UNSUNG HERO IN DOCTOR WHO.
