I really hate how the farther we get into this season of Doctor Who, the more I get bored during episodes. The possibilities are endless with this show yet it’s mostly recycled and repackaged stories and character types.
#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can seevia thesilverdevastation

And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:
Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling. Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*. She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.
"average author kills 3 characters per book" factoid actually just statistical error. average author kills 0 characters per book. Georg R.R. Martin, who lives in a cave and kills over 10,000 characters per book, is an outlier and should not have been counted
