infernaldoom requested Mickey Smith, awesome moments
The name’s Mickey. Mickey Smith. Defending the Earth.

Literally just told another friend that I hope Clara and Martha are having tea regularly!

I WANT THIS SO VERY MUCH

  • They’d discuss their respective careers
  • And their respective trying times with the Doctor
  • Mickey and Danny would get along SO WELL
  • Clara could bring Artie and Angie to see them sometime, maybe
  • Maybe even Courtney (perhaps accompanied by her parents)
  • Courtney would be INCREDIBLY impressed by Martha
  • Whereas Mickey would pretend to be annoyed with her but secretly like her a lot
  • Clara would be super good with the Smith-Jones kids, if they had any
  • Apologies for the bullet points

I really need to talk about Mickey more on this blog. (I might do that tomorrow, actually. Prepare for a Mickey Day.) As a sixteen-year-old Doctor Who fan in 2005, he was my favourite - he wasn’t perfect, no, but literally everyone around him seemed to want to put him down in some way, or was dead, or had abandoned him, and he was still a really nice and heroic person. When most people including me would have given up and just become a sobbing heap of goo after the third or fourth ‘idiot’.


The difference in the way the Doctor is written by RTD and Moffat.

Companion: I am so rubbish. 

RTD-written Doctor: No, you’re not! You’re brilliant! Remember that wonderful thing you did! Remember that special skill you have that nobody else has? Don’t put yourself down! Where would I be without you, eh?

vs

Moffat-written Doctor: You are bossy, also a control freak, a narcissist, a game player, needy, and also your skirt is just a little too tight.

Companion: Excuse me???

RTD-written Doctor to Rose: I picked another stupid ape.

RTD-written Doctor to Martha: Rose would know.

RTD-written Doctor to Donna: You’re not clever, you’re not important.

RTD-written Doctor to Jackie: No, Jackie. No, no. Not you. Don’t touch anything.

RTD-written Doctor to Mickey: How stupid are you?

RTD-written Doctor to Mickey: [refuses to get his name right]

RTD-written Doctor to Mickey: Mickey the idiot.

RTD-written Doctor to Mickey, after Mickey has proved himself just as capable as any other companion: Mickey the idiot.

RTD-written Doctor to Mickey: [forgets about him and leaves him holding a button for half an hour]

vs

Moffat-written Doctor [didn’t call Clara a control freak til after she had called herself one, didn’t call her a narcissist at all - Strax did - and was talking to himself with her nowhere in earshot when he mentioned the skirt]


I still know who’d I’d rather travel with. Eleven and Twelve (so far) have been insensitive pricks, but Nine and Ten have been downright bullies.

Newsflash. some Doctors are rude to their companions. This has been true since the very beginning when the Doctor couldn’t be bothered to remember Ian’s name.

And stop cherry picking quotes to make Nine and Ten look like saints. 

Or cherry picking quotes to make Nine and Ten to look exclusively like a sinner or a bully (when right or wrong, almost all of it is aimed at Mickey and not his companions as a whole) for that matter.

In “Father’s Day”, Nine is justified in his anger towards Rose. She almost destroyed the world and had no idea what she was doing when she saved her father’s life.

Donna wasn’t even a proper companion in “The Runaway Bride”, so using that to attack RTD just SOUNDS like agenda driving. In context, this was a strange person who just suddenly broke through the TARDIS’ defences and was filled with an ancient and deadly energy source the Time Lords had mostly got rid of. I guess “Yes you are, you’re brilliant.” was from Eleven’s era or Eight’s era or something.

Also, the bit with Jackie not pressing buttons in “Journey’s End” to call him a bully? That really sounds like reaching out, especially when he trusts four or five of his other friends to pilot the TARDIS. I am so done with this.

Donna wasn’t even a proper companion in “The Runaway Bride”

So it was alright for him to speak to a stranger like that?!

Also, the bit with Jackie not pressing buttons in “Journey’s End” to call him a bully? That really sounds like reaching out, especially when he trusts four or five of his other friends to pilot the TARDIS.

So why not her? Why is she constantly the butt of all the jokes? (Not just in Journey’s End, either, her age and her love life are frequently poked fun at.) She’s already proven herself perfectly capable. Why shouldn’t she fly the TARDIS with all the other companions?

Or cherry picking quotes to make Nine and Ten to look exclusively like a sinner or a bully (when right or wrong, almost all of it is aimed at Mickey and not his companions as a whole) for that matter.

Almost all the insults (and we’re talking proper, completely undeserved insults like ‘idiot’ and ‘stupid’) are aimed at Mickey - the only recurring non-white person on the whole show during S1 and 2 - and that’s not a huge problem?! Sorry, you’ve lost me.

Martha Jones and Mickey Smith, Stolen Earth/Journey’s End

Yes, Mickey looks completely anonymously. Well what can you do with short hair and almost completely black clothes, right? :shrugs:

Martha Jones is also all black, but well… it was for Song of Freedom set again, so I couldn’t do another outfit, could I? But she came out pretty fine I think.
