Things to take away from this
Colin Baker defended us when Michael Grade called us all ‘loonies’ for liking Doctor Who.
Colin Baker was, in fact, treated like trash by the man who headed the BBC
Colin Baker was canned because of politics - nothing to do with his ability as The Doctor (he was great)
Doctor Who, in general, had good numbers when it was cancelled. Better than other shows, but Grade had a vendetta against Doctor Who
Colin Baker loved the show enough to go on tour to help promote it EVEN AFTER BEING FIRED. JUST TO SAVE THE SHOW.
Colin Baker wasn’t even paid that much for his era. He mainly did the job because he loved it and he believed in the show.
Colin Baker STOOD UP to one of the most powerful men in Britain because he knew he was wronged, even when everyone was telling him to lie and say he quit. He even called him a coward.
Colin Baker was NEVER given a reason for why he was fired.
Colin Baker is a hero among the Who fandom. That people dislike him is simply criminal. Our enemy is Michael Grade.

goodbye i’m gone bye

#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 see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
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.


#excellent tags are excellent#jfc moffat#twelfth doctor#clara oswald#the oncoming patriarchy#in contrast with#ninth doctor#rose tyler#bamf#i know that’s a lot of pictures#but i kept looking for counterexamples#and there weren’t any#someone who’s got more martha and donna promo pictures handy#should do some examples of their presentation

/w martha



/w donna




and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:
