It’s odd how I can harbor so many negative feelings for somebody, then lose it all when I see them go through something so awful as the loss of a family member. I keep forgetting that we’re all human and I need to take that into account more often. It seems that my compassion has been slowly drained out of me by the hate and ignorance in the world, which has turned me into something similar to the machine I so very despise. It’s time for me to look inwardly and work on myself a little. Go hug somebody you love, and hug somebody you don’t, because even though you might not be too fond of them, there’s a chance that they need it more than you can imagine.
Doctor Who Announces All-Star Cast for 50th Anniversary
Ahead of tonight’s premiere, Doctor Who has today revealed some of the all-star cast that will mark the 50th anniversary. David Tennant and Billie Piper will join current Doctor and companion, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, while John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Alien, Harry Potter) will also co-star.
Last seen as the Doctor on January 1st 2010, this will be the first time Tennant has reprised his role as the Tenth Doctor. During his reign as the Time Lord, Tennant appeared in three series as well as several specials. He was first revealed as the Doctor in the 2005 series finale, ‘The Parting of the Ways’.
Meanwhile Billie Piper, who played companion Rose Tyler for two series following the reboot in 2005, will appear in the show for the first time since featuring in Tennant’s last episode, ‘The End of Time’ in 2010.
Also confirmed to join the cast is John Hurt who will also co-star in the 3D anniversary special that will form part of blockbuster celebrations later this year.
The 50th anniversary will be written by Steven Moffat and Directed by Nick Hurran.
Filming for the 50th anniversary starts this week. Meanwhile Doctor Who returns tonight on BBC America (March 30, 8/7c), BBC One (30 Mar, 6:15pm), SPACE Channel (March 30, 8e/5p), and ABCTV (March 31, 7.30p) for a run of eight epic episodes, which officially introduces the Doctor’s newest companion, Clara Oswald, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.
You mean changing my profile picture doesn’t magically give gays the right to marry? I’m aware of that, but thanks for thinking I’m naive enough to believe that would sway the way the SCOTUS rules. I didn’t just change my picture so I could call myself an activist, I’ve done plenty of things to support gay rights. But no, I changed it to show solidarity, to show that I’m a friend to the LBGT community. For the gays that might think that it doesn’t get better, they’ll see that symbol next to somebody’s name, and it’ll give them hope. So that’s why I changed it. Instead of being snarky and criticizing, which will get you nowhere, I decided to try. Even if it doesn’t make a difference, I can say that I tried. That’s more than those people sitting around and making shitty comments can say.
