“’Falling in love, that didn’t even occur to him?’


'Then what sort of a man is that?'”

—John Smith (the Doctor) and Martha—Doctor Who

I said I was a sucker for the dramatic bits…  This was the element of this two-parter (which I love) that most marvelously illustrated the Doctor’s alien-ness, which is usually such a wonderful thing, but—and this is a major theme of the whole show—can be the loneliest, saddest thing about the character as well.




Martin Freeman | Who Do You Think You Are?

#eternal crying

Reblogging because of this from a recent interview Martin gave:

His parents divorced when he was 1 and he lived mostly with his father, a naval officer, until his sudden death from a heart attack when Freeman was 10. “At the time, I probably tried to brush my dad’s death under the carpet. I didn’t want people to feel sorry for me. I was small, I was pretty sickly and asthmatic; people already went ‘little Martin’. But when I was 17 or 18, I realized that losing a parent is a big deal. It was devastating in a way that I was unable to acknowledge at the time.” His eyes tear up. “Sometimes I wonder if I heard his voice now, would it be the same as it is my memory?

This is rough, but familiar, stuff.
