Did you really believe that?

 #I love it because martha is all ‘you’re such a fucking idiot’ #and she laughs at the master #she laughs at the fucking psycho who has been destroying earth and who kept her family prisoners #she laughs at someone who could kill her any second #she makes him look like a moron #she takes the power away from him and she turns the tables (via iceinherheart-kissonherlips)


Also, two thoughts (neither of them new, but I never connected them before) just clicked in my head:

The first thing: Martha is in the Doctor’s role in this episode. Not just that she’s the one saving the day, but TO THE MASTER AS WELL. He puts all his energy into capturing her, defeating her, humiliating her, because he doesn’t want to admit he was ever afraid of her. The Doctor’s spent a year being boring and of no interest to him no matter how hard he prods. It’s incredibly telling that by the end of the year, he’s tormenting the Doctor to try and get at Martha through the people she loves, instead tormenting Martha to get at the Doctor. Martha is the Master’s true archenemy in LotTL, at least for the first three-quarters of it.

The second thing: Mind of Evil. The one thing the Master fears most in the universe is the Doctor laughing in his face.

And when Martha takes on the Doctor’s role, what does she do? THIS GIFSET, YOU GUYS.

11 your 9 is showing

Uhh—no.  His Eleven is showing.  Nine was never THAT callous about his companion’s life.  He was, at times, a little bit reckless, but he was never detached.  

And here’s how he acts when he thinks they’re both about to die:

Wow, no. Nine would never, ever act like that towards someone. Nine thought everyone was important. Nine had such a deep respect for life. He thought that every single person was important, even if that meant he had to accept the fact that he was going to bear witness to their death.

It started with Jabe, and how respectful he was when he had to break the news of her death. He apologized to Gwyneth when she chose to sacrifice herself to save everyone else. He defended the pig decoy when it was killed in “Aliens of London”. He tried to stop the Nestene Consciousness by telling it how new the life on Earth was, and how it deserved a chance. I could go on, but I think this quote from “Father’s Day” sums it up better than I ever could:

Who said you’re not important? I’ve traveled to all sorts of places, done things you couldn’t even imagine. But you two? Street corner, two in the morning, getting a taxi home. I’ve never had a life like that.”

Nine, despite his rather hardened exterior, felt far more deeply than he let on. I love that about him. Despite everywhere he’s been, and everything he has seen and been through, he hasn’t lost touch with the idea that everything, no matter how big or how small, has value. Every life matters. Telling someone to “shut up” doesn’t fit Nine’s character. He was never, ever that dismissive.
