Some Very British Problems (x)
Loads of British problems occurred when I was in America and I think I just came across as weird. If you hold a door open over there nobody will say thank you. I would hold it open even if the next person was a mile away, Americans will slam it in your face rather than holding it open.
That kept happening to us too! They’d constantly just let the door shut in our faces, even thought they’d seen us behind them. Rude.
Holy shit these are so real.
- Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
- Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that
Overture to a post.
The new Doctor is great and everyone needs to realise this.
