I cried so much at this scene <3
#So this is all very shippy #With the protectiveness and the touching #but for some reason that FOURTH gif in particular #where they’re watching the soldiers shoot the werewolf#and Rose if flinching away from the noise and the muzzle-flash #she’s huddling back into the Doctor for protection #And he’s just standing there; he doesn’t blink or flinch #For some reason that one is really getting to me (via gallifreyburning)
now you’re just somebody that I used to know
He had this companion a while back. This friend. And ever since then he’s been on his own. But you know, sometimes I say something or do something and he looks at me, and I just sort of think that he’s not seeing me. He’s just remembering.
#every acting award ever #i know a lot of people criticise ten for being whiny and difficult and bratty in this scene #i feel that those who do have pretty much completely missed the entire arc of ten’s character development #of all the new!who doctors he is the most painfully perfectly HUMAN incarnation #nine is the battle-weary scarred alien destroyer of civilisations. #eleven is a dorky alien dude with a penchant for hats and a dark streak the size of an oncoming storm. #not that ten doesn’t have his alien or oncoming storm aspects. he does. but predominantly he is HUMAN. #he was born from sacrificing himself as nine to save rose. he was born BECAUSE of her.#throughout his entire story arc ten delights in humanity. so many times he WANTS to be human. to take that slow path with rose. #at one point he even IS human in the family of blood storyline. #and he is TERRIFIED - as we all would be - of disappearing. of course as a timelord he doesn’t die. #but HE - as ten. as the man who loved rose and martha and donna. - HE won’t exist anymore #of course he rails against it like any human would. he wants to cling on to life. the life he knows. his identity. his humanity. #and this is his reward? oh baby. #so he rants and raves and is sadly startlingly painfully human. and then that last gif. #he pulls himself back. he KNOWS he’s being whiny. he knows that in the bigger scheme of things he still lives.#so he gets on with it. he was born for rose and now he dies for wilf. #he dies for wilf and he dies for DONNA. he’s giving her her granddad back. #and this is why i love ten. always and forever.(via virginiachance)
Humans decay. You wither and you die. Imagine that happening to someone you…
I’m the Doctor. I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I’m 903 years old, and I’m the man who’s gonna save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below. - The Doctor, Voyage of the Damned
Rose: You know what? They keep on trying to split us up but they never ever will.
The Doctor: Never say never ever.
Rose: Nah, we’ll aways be okay, you and me. Don’t you reckon Doctor?

“Look at these people. These human beings. Consider their potential. From the day they arrive on the planet and, blinking, step into the sun, there is more to see than can ever be seen. More to do than - no, hold on…sorry, that’s The Lion King. But the point still stands! Leave them alone!”
