I just found out that one of the vehicles that Jon Pertwee drove in Doctor Who was a car he’d had designed to use not only in the show, but as his own personal car.
It was this beauty.
And it could go 105 miles per hour.
Reblog this if you believe in asexuality please
I want the monsters in Kill the Moon to turn out to be called “moonites”, and for the Doctor to scream “NO, STRAX CANNOT BE RIGHT ABOUT MOONITES, THEY’RE NOT REAL” and the moonites just stare at him, like he’s the dumbest Time Lord ever.
now that i actually think about it
hp lovecraft looked a bit like stephen colbert
i even googled and found this
actual undisputable photographic evidence
I don’t know how I came up with this idea, but I think the Great Intelligence experienced events in this order, kind of.
The Snowmen->The Bells of St. John->The Name of the Doctor->The Abominable Snowmen->The Web of Fear->Downtime(novel or movie, pick one)->Millennial Rites
Or something like that.
Timelines involving entities that don’t follow the same physical laws are difficult.
In the Expanded Universe, the Great Intelligence is none other than the Great Old One, Yog-Sothoth, which came from the universe before this one. But The Snowmen seems to imply that it was created from psychic snow using Dr. Simeon’s mind. Which presents a bit of a problem.
Basically, I’m saying both are true. The Intelligence was born because it left a bit of itself in some snow it remembered bonding with Simeon. Which is a paradox.
It grew over the years, and took over Simeon completely, as a result of the Doctor’s interference. Now you’d think that, if things were strictly linear, it would then use yetis and take over the London Underground. NOPE
It sat and waited for a while, observing the actions of its future self (because how could it not, they were pretty freaking obvious), and took Kizlet as its servant during the aftermath of the Web of Fear thing.
Which leads us to The Bells of St. John. It meets the Doctor again, and gets defeated. Blah blah blah, now we’re at The Name of the Doctor.
The Intelligence, now with some freaky, vaguely Lovecraftian powers such as not having anything of a real physical form, and being therefore unkillable by normal means, lures the Doctor to Trenzalore, and spreads itself across its timeline. And, in one of these encounters (most likely toward the beginning of this universe), rather than attempt to kill him as the other instances of itself did, it chose to escape, somehow managing to travel back to before the Big Bang.
And this piece of the Great Intelligence is what became Yog-Sothoth.
Maybe it was the differing laws of physics that caused the change, or the Big Crunch to Big Bang process. But whatever happened,Mr. G. Intelligence was turned into a proper, full blown cosmic horror.
When I first heard the term CIS being used on Tumblr, I didn’t know it meant being comfortable with your assigned gender. I thought this whole site was talking about the Confederacy of Independent Systems. As in
the Sith’s droid army, and when everyone was saying “CIS scum” they were calling people out on being Sith
This is my new favourite post on the entire Tumblr
