- Matt Smith (April 2011-Radio Times): [The Doctor] is too much of a space bachelor [to get married]. The universe is his mistress and he’s not going to give her up for anyone! He finds marriage all rather peculiar, I have to say. To him, spending his whole life with someone is an alien…

reminder she took 3 stunning spells directly to the chest and after being taken to st mungos brushed it off like nothing
I HATE THIS PHOTO SO MUCH. 👎👿 “If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted, women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong.” #EmmaWatson #Feminism #HeForShe
And get used to it.
AU: Unable to leave Trenzalore and on his last regeneration, the Doctor calls on an old foe with a desperate request.
Psi got his memories back. Sabre got her gene suppressant. But what was the Doctor’s reward? It was the Doctor who was the Architect, not some all-powerful being who could magically grant everyone’s wish at the end of the mission. He couldn’t grant his own wish just as a reward for doing a seemingly impossible task - he does that everyday anyway. That doesn’t mean he didn’t get anything out of it.
When he saw what was in that vault and what the entire mission had been about from the start, it struck a chord with him. A lonely monster, the last of his kind, stuck doing things it regrets because the one it loved had been taken from him. This is why the Doctor agreed to take on the mission, not because of Madame Karabraxos’ regret. The Doctor may be unable to save his own wife but he couldn’t just stand by and not save the seemingly doomed couple. The Doctor and River may not get their happily ever after, but the Teller and his love now will and that was reward enough.
This is one of those ideas where some person was like “Hehe, this might be silly.” And then struck fucking gold.
