RIP to the wonderful Kate O’Mara who played the Rani in Classic Who.

25 March: Remembering the great Patrick Troughton (1920-1987) on what would have been his 94th birthday.
What are some of your favourite memories of his time as the Doctor?
Everything. Oh, just…everything. Happy birthday, sir. You are sorely missed.
Got to reblog love for Barbara “BAMF” Wright. :D (via elden-12)
Friendly reminder that the first Doctor once told Doris Lethbridge-Stewart that all of his incarnations turned up to her husband’s funeral.
“‘But you do know, don’t you? What happens to him? How he dies?’
The Doctor smiled. ‘No,’ he said. ‘Not yet. We’ve never met, remember. But when he goes, I’m there for him. At the funeral, I mean, I’m there. All of me, in fact. The ones that knew him best carry him. We don’t usually get on, you know. But this time we make the effort. I think it works because we are all determined not to be the one to cause a fuss… for him.’ He suddenly laughed delightedly. ‘Mind you, ’ he continued, ‘we weren’t so successful at the wake. Two of us ended up almost coming to blows. I think it started over who had had the last sausage roll and suddenly they were fighting over which of them Alastair liked best.’”

The Empty Hearse was inspired by The Web of Fear.
The Sign of Three drew certain elements from The Green Death.
I think we’re all hoping that His Last Vow will just be a remake of The Horns of Nimon with Sherlock Holmes.
Anonymous said: He definitely did not plan it. It's very obvious when Moffat has not planned something. 11 running out of regenerations, Mel being River, etc. etc.
Yup. Too bad really.
Does anyone actually think moffat planned the crack/gallifrey connection? I sure as hell don’t.
