"What do you dream about?" she’ll ask. The same thing everybody dreams about, I tell her. I dream about where I’m going. She always laughs at that - “But you’re not going anywhere, you’re just wandering about!”
That’s not true, not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It’s taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last, I know where I’m going. Where I’ve always been going. Home.
Gallifrey falls no more.
I think we can all agree that, at the very least, it was beautiful.

DOCTOR WHO SUPER-SUPER-CUT: Every companion departure.
"I suppose in the end…they break my heart"
So to celebrate the fact that I have finally finished watching every single episode of Doctor Who, here’s my gift to you, fandom: a video compilation of every single main* companion departure scene, from The Dalek’s Invasion of Earth all the way up The Angels Take Manhattan! enjoy~ (and by joy, I mean cry, of course).
Oviously big warning here that these are HUGE!!! SPOILERS!!! so skip what you have to if nescessary! Here’s the timespan guide:
One // 0:00 - Two // 12:40 - Three // 22: 32 - Four // 25:06 - Five // 34:22 - Six/Seven // 40: 56 - Eight // 43: 51 - Nine/Ten // 45:58 - Eleven // 56: 48.
*This applies only to characters that got proper farewells on screen, which sadly means Liz Shaw, Peri, Ace, and Dodo had to be left out. Also, originally I had intended to include the more “debatable” side companions like Jack, Mickey, Katarina and Sara. But had to cut them to fit dailymotion’s time limit, sorry!
Susan was originally a lot more distant and alien and very smug with her intellect. This was another part of the episode that Sydney wasn’t fond of as he wanted the children at home to identify with her character. He wanted her to be a mix of both otherworldly and intelligent and also a regular teenager with flaws.
In the unaired pilot she is rather detached from Ian and Barbara and a lot harsher in the way she holds herself. She also seems to take the Doctor’s side and less identifies with her teachers. It ends up very Doctor and Susan vs. Ian and Barbara, rather than the alien girl trapped between the love of two worlds and peoples. She serves best when she can bridge the gap between the familiar and the strange.
Her clothes are different too. In the pilot she wears a silky top and seems more unusually dressed, whereas in the broadcast version she looks like a regular fashionable teenager (Even wearing Carole Ann Ford’s own top), and with it she’s softer, kinder, and more accessible to a teenage audience, though she does lose a little bit of her intense mystery and weirdness.

(Lia has asked Mod to stop bouncing hopefully off of the ceiling and do her research. Verification will be presented if it comes.)
TALK ABOUT AN AWESOME 50TH ANNIVERSARY PRESENT JFC
Whaaaaaaat??? Fingers crossed!
The Radio Times says it’s at least a little bit true. The number of eps is still up in the air, but… *heavy breathing*.
We are aware that Peter Capaldi’s played a big old part in Doctor Who and Torchwood before and we are not going to ignore the fact.
I remember Russell told me that he had a big old plan as to why there were two Peter Capaldi’s in the Who universe: one in Pompeii and one in Torchwood. When I cast Peter and Russell got in touch to say how pleased he was, I said, ‘Okay, what was your theory and does it still work?” and he said, ‘Yes it does. Here it is…’
We’ll play that one out over time. It’s actually quite neat.”
The face is not set from birth. It’s not like he was always going to be one day Peter Capaldi. We know that’s the case because in The War Games he has a choice of faces. So we know it’s not set, so where does he get those faces from? They can’t just be randomly generated because they’ve got lines. They’ve aged. When he turns into Peter he’ll actually have lines on his face. So where did that face come from?"
