IT IS THE SAME FREAKING FONT AND EVERYTHING
"But he’s happy because he’s saving the children!…”
1 - This is Ten saving the earth by destroying the Racnoss in The Runaway Bride.
He’s saving 7 billions of his deeply beloved humans. Lots of children there too.
And yet, he’s not celebrating at all. Actually, he’s borderline suicidal.
Donna has to save him.
Genocide is not fun.
2 - And this is Ten saving Gallifrey by destroying the Daleks.
All giggling, and junping around with joy.
No guilt, no rage, no remorse, just blatant out of characterness.
And since The Day of the Doctor is supposed to take place after Waters of Mars, Ten’s behaviour is even more OOC.
In Waters of Mars, Ten painfully learns that changing history to choose who to save is wrong, is dangerous, is hýbris.
And suddenly, in The Day of the Doctor, he’s like ”LOL let’s change history, hýbris is cool!”
To me, that’s NOT Ten.
*ahem- 50 year old…
But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’
