As some of you already know, I just finished a book a few days ago titled The Glorious...
So during a conversation with my brother he described TFP!Starscream as looking perpetually like he was caught with his hand in the cookie jar, and I was struck by the perfection of that description.
Summary: Historical archivists were a singular build unaltered since the times of the ancients. Never built to be anything but what they are: watchers and witnesses, fit only to keep records in the basements of Iacon… and then Orion Pax happened.
Okay, I really really really need someone to analyze Clara and Vastra’s conversation/argument. For some reason I’m having difficulty understanding exactly what Clara was saying/meant (especially with the last sentence). Idk.
*raises hand* Maybe I can help!
I thought there were a lot of cool things that went on in Deep Breath on a character level. ‘Course, the Doctor’s wearing a new face, so I’m not totally convinced yet (I like Eleven)…but the episode addressed that too!
Anyway, some of the things that I thought were really good character-wise:
(on a related note, a sign that the Doctor is moving on: the previous New-Who incarnations wanted to forget the one before, ASAP. Eleven was particularly insistent, referring to the others as “him” and “them”, creating distance. Ten calls him out on it in The Day of the Doctor, and Eleven seems to have made peace with all the other incarnations at the end of The Time of the Doctor. But Twelve is insistent on the me from the get-go. The others are still a part of him.)
