Rose is open, honest, heartfelt, to the point of being selfish, wonderfully selfish. Martha is clever, calm, but rarely says what she’s really thinking. Donna is blunt, precise, unfiltered, but with a big heart beneath all the banter. […] If Rose can be selfish, then her finest moments will come when she’s selfless. If Martha keeps quiet, then her moments of revelation — like her goodbye to the Doctor — make her fly. Donna is magnificently self-centred — not selfish, but she pivots everything around herself, as we all do — so when she opens up and hears the Ood song, or begs for Caecilius’ family to be saved, then she’s wonderful.
The most Powerful scene of the whole series.
This scene is so beautiful to me because it’s one of those things the writers put in for the older viewers despite the overwhelming younger demographic, but instead of some kind of sexual joke, it’s an actually powerful wake-up call.
Just because someone is of the same blood as you, doesn’t mean you automatically have to love them. Your family needs to earn your love and respect, not mandate it due to the presence of mutual genes. And I think that’s something a lot of us don’t realize until we’re older, and it’s a bit too late.
Love this series. Love this series. See above.
Also Raven. Seriously, just yes.
In case anyone wanted to know the exact moment I started sobbing
#we got like 2 seconds of the boys looking at the cars#remembering bobby #being kids #hiding out in the junkyard #rebuilding the car#coming here every time they were in a pinch #this is still a home #but they’ve moved out and onwards but it’s impossible to forget your childhood homes it just ugh
well this is embarrassing…
