As a concluding note, I personally feel that the lack of any Jackie - Donna interaction may be one of the biggest failings of RTD’s Who
#oh my god #I’d forgotten this scene #this is why, isn’t it #this is why he always told her how special she was #how important #how brilliant #because he remembered the time when he was so callous #the time that, for all he knows, might have contributed to her shitty self esteem even more #the time he told her she wasn’t special or important #which coming from him is harsh #I mean the Doctor thinks everyone’s important #but in that moment #with a brain addled with heartbreak #and a heart aching for his Rose #he told her what she already thought about herself #and who knows #maybe that’s why she never believed him
The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say ‘no.’ You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away!
Trapped in a box of tremendous size
It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes!
A fanmix for the people who wanted to Impress Him, and the price they paid; songs for Rose’s tears, Mickey’s anger, Martha’s ill-treatment, Donna’s de-powering, Rory’s lack of faith and Amy’s scream. Their seperate obsessions. And then some.
1. “Do you wanna come with me?”
birdhouse in your soul (they might be giants) I’m your only friend I’m not your only friend but I’m a little glowing friend but really I’m not actually your friend but I am // minimal (pet shop boys) An empty box, an open space, a single thought leaves a trace // i saved the world today (eurythmics) everybody’s happy now the bad thing’s gone away // life on mars (david bowie) her friend is nowhere to be seen as she walks through her sunken dream // view from heaven (yellowcard) I’m sure the view from heaven beats the hell out of mine here // oh my god (the kaiser chiefs) oh my god I can’t believe it I’ve never been this far away from home
2. “Your wish is my command. Just be careful what you wish for.”
don’t fear the reaper (blue oyster cult) she had taken his hand she had become like they are // the sound of silence (simon and garfunkel) people talking without speaking people hearing without listening // scary monsters and super creeps (david bowie) she asked me to stay and I stole her room, she asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind // the court of the crimson king (king crimson) the yellow jester does not play but gently pulls the strings, and smiles as the puppets dance in the court of the crimson king // tryin’ to throw your arms around the world (u2) how far you gonna go before you lose your way back home
3. “You were that close to her once, and now you never even mention her. Why not?”
don’t think you’re the first (the coral) don’t think you’re the first in the whole universe to be untouched by the time, think you’re one of a kind // parasol (tori amos) and then the seated woman with a parasol may be the only one you can’t betray // hypnotist of ladies (they might be giants) never had a pocket watch never counted backwards you won’t remember why you liked him // jar of hearts (christina perri) who do you think you are, running round leaving scars // i’ll forget you (linda eder) I’ll forget you, tomorrow I will turn and let you go
4. “How long are you going to stay with me?” “Forever.”
howl (florence and the machine) if you could only see the beast you made of me // are we human or are we dancers (the killers) will your system be alright when you dream of home tonight // trapped in a box (no doubt) oh this is not enough for a human to grow, trapped in a box // paradise (coldplay) she said oh I know the sun must always set to rise // hotel california (the eagles) you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave
Companion word clouds: Rose, Martha, Donna

Word Clouds for the Doctor’s companions!
-Mickey’s includes the Tardisode he appeared in
-Rory’s includes PS, Space and Time and the DVD extras
-Amy’s includes Space and Time, the DVD extras and (after some thought) Good As Gold
-River’s includes all her incarnations, so you’ve got little Melody and Mels in there too.
