Thinking about recent seasons of Doctor Who, I really miss Donna Noble.
#I really want to take a second to praise David for his acting here #because all you need to do is look at his face and you can see that everything is absolutely horribly wrong #and the most terrible part is how subtle it is #he doesn’t look outright panicked or distraught #he looks passive #and that’s the worst expression the doctor can have #because at least when there’s fear or desperation you know he doesn’t want to give up #you know he’s going to fight and he’s going to keep trying #but this is resignation #pure resignation #he realizes exactly what’s happened and what has to happen and how much it is going to tear him apart #and that face says there is no other option #all he can do is let it happen #it burns him alive but he can’t show it #he knows he can’t because it’s going to be hard enough for her #and he needs to be strong here #he needs to shut down and be as cold and detached as he can get #because it’s better than letting the pain in #it’s better than showing her exactly how much this is going to kill him #because that will only make it worse #that face says more in its subtleties than it ever could in outright expression #bravo David #truly
Do you all remember that other time his face was completely blank?
A REMINDER THAT DONNA IS THE BEST
Reasons Why Donna Noble Was Awesome
Remember when Donna was all sassy and put the Doctor in his place. And made sure the Doctor knew he wasn’t better than her. In their second episode together. Yeah.
This is why she was my favourite companion.
“Did I ever tell ya? Best temp in Chiswick. Hundreds words per minute.”
Thats one fabulous Donna cosplayer! That 10 isn’t too shabby either
Hey it’s me! Thanks! :D
