I Shall Guard It With My Leaf

Okay, I just finished watching Peter Capaldi’s first full episode as the Doctor, and I’m kind of disappointed.

Not by Capaldi’s performance.  He was great, but there were parts of the plot of the episode that I really found distatesteful.  Particularly, the amount of ageism written into it.

I mean, yes, we get it, Capaldi is an older actor than the last few to play the Doctor.  You can only make so many jokes about that before it becomes an extremely tired, even insulting line.  And I can understand Clara having reservations after the Doctor’s regeneration, but she blatantly expresses in the early parts of the episode that she can’t recognize him because he’s “wrinkly”.

And, to cap it all off, it’s not Capaldi that wins her over but Matt Smith, calling from the past (or the future or… something), to tell her that he is the Doctor, thus removing Capaldi’s opportunity to prove his character.  That just stings like rubbing salt in a wound.

There seems a lot of irony in the Doctor mistaking Strax for Clara.

If Strax had much of a mind for words, he would have had a good comeback for that.

The Doctor can never give him a hard time about constantly mixing up genders again…

That’s ok, I sometimes think Strax is a lot more intelligent than he lets on.

Strax IS a lot more intelligent than he lets on.

He’s a medical expert. He’s deeply familiar with military tactics. He just happens to have been raised in a society that 1) has only one gender, and 2) is obsessed with war.

So hey, it turns out that Gillian Anderson dressed up like Morticia Addams was something we all needed in our lives.

"Horsemanning, or fake beheading, was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920’s. Sometimes spelled horsemaning, the horsemanning photo fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, a character from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

HUMAN BEING ARE AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN SUCH HUGE FUCKING DORKS OKAY.
