Yes. We have not nearly talked about this scene enough.
Because when Clara is threatened with torture, you already know she will be brave. You know she will be strong and hide her fear and just get through it until the Doctor comes back.
And then you realise that you were absolutely wrong. Clara does not hide her fear at all, for it is not something that needs hiding. An emotion as strong as fearing for your life is a powerful weapon. And by admitting just how scared she is, Clara immediately wins the game. The more scared she is, the less likely it is that she will talk.
This is so clever and yet so typical Moffat and I just love it. His heroes do not prevail despite having emotions - they haven’t gone through some gruelling military training that makes them tough in a crisis.
No, his heroes are strong because of their emotions. Be scared, be sad, cry, laugh, love, and do not be ashamed to show it. Real strength lies in owning who you are.
Moffat said it himself: “History tells us who we used to be, documentaries tell us who we are now, and heroes tell us who we want to be.”
A world of Moffat’s heroes is certainly something worth striving for.
do you ever read headcanons or fanfiction and you’re like “this is really cute but also very out of character”
The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter whether or not you think homosexuality is a sin. Let me say that again. It does not matter if you think homosexuality is a sin, or if you think it is simply another expression of human love. It doesn’t matter. Why doesn’t it matter? Because people are dying. Kids are literally killing themselves because they are so tired of being rejected and dehumanized that they feel their only option left is to end their life. As a Youth Pastor, this makes me physically ill. And as a human, it should make you feel the same way. So, I’m through with the debate.
When faced with the choice between being theologically correct…as if this is even possible…and being morally responsible, I’ll go with morally responsible every time." - What You Believe About Homosexuality Doesn’t Matter (via idioticteen)
