#a romantic subplot i didn’t hate#a romantic subplot that didn’t make me roll my eyes#a romantic subplot that didn’t make itself seem like the purpose of the movie#a romantic subplot that seemed to be all about the guy saving the girl only to be turned around at the last minute by the girl going lol no#my sister needs me
Interviewer: What are the first things that you guys noticed about each other when you first started working together?
Lucy: I didn’t know that Jonny had the eyes that he does. I mean, they’re pretty stunning, I have to say. You could fall into them. They’re beautiful

# it hurts me # because usually by this point in a companions arc # aka at the end of their season # they believe in themselves # theyve traveled with the doctor and theyve done and seen such amazing things # and in doing so they realize their own potential # their own skills # but donna # despite everything shes done # saved a family in pompeii # freed the ood # solved murders with agatha goddamn christie # saved the doctor from himself #despite ALL OF THAT # she still thinks shes nothing special # because her entire life thats what shes been told # she has never been able to see just what a remarkable person she truly is # and the doctor is so surprised here # because he can see it # clear as day # hes seen it for a long time # and what kills me about donnas ending # isnt just that she loses her memories # she loses him too # her best friend in the universe # the one who listened #even when she wasnt shouting (via yaccbs)
