Pond Family Portrait
A commissioned piece that took far too long to finish, but the concept was so fun that I couldn’t resist! A scrapbook-style page of photos featuring Amy Pond and her rather unique family. With the Doctor and River making everything a challenge, of course. XD
Doctor Who copyright BBC.
Google autocomplete experiment: Doctor Who.
Type a character name and ‘is’ into Google - observe the top five (although some characters will have less) autocomplete results - examine the differences between the women and the men, and between white characters and characters of colour.
Here’s Doctor Who!
All the main female characters have ‘annoying’ in their results somewhere. (The sheer amount of times the word ‘annoying’ comes up for female characters, while it almost never comes up for male ones, was one of the things I found most interesting about the initial experiment.)
Typing in ‘mickey smith is’ only gets results for the real-life photographer who shares his name, which is a bit disappointing. I was in two minds about whether to include Danny Pink or not, since we haven’t actually met him yet, but since his casting met with a flurry of speculation - and since he looks likely to be the first black main character the show has seen for over five years (!)- I decided to include him.
Typing ‘the twelfth doctor is’ brings up nothing, or it did for me. If you get different results to any of this, please tell me! But for the moment, I think it’s a pretty good indication to how fandom swings on its female characters right now. Martha’s top result is a nice surprise, though.
All results correct as of 17:00 BST, 9th June 2014. They almost certainly will change as time and the TV show goes on: I’m curious to see what changes!
Have at it! What do you think?
"So what’s he like? In the future, I mean. Because you know him in the future, don’t you?" - "The Doctor? Well, the Doctor is the Doctor…”
#the contrasts here are so striking#one time she is telling him that he is loved#one time that he is feared#once she specifically calls him a man and not a god#once she can’t help but to make that analogy#when the full weight of what loving him means becomes clear#she’s seen all the sides of him#and that is what makes her perspective on who he is so interesting
