i append what i said about the time of angels to ‘possibly my new second favorite episode’ because i simply hadn’t watched girl in the fireplace in a bit.
also where the hell is a flashback or better where the doctor goes back with his COSMIC TIME BOX and gets reinette and at least has a nice weekend? all ‘hello, i got your letter, sorry i’m late, here’s a cure for tuberculosis (or whatever it was), do you maybe want to get dinner? i know a nice place on a beach with hardly any daleks at all.’
i understand it’s not always a precise science and time still marches on without him and all that, but as much as i love this episode and feel the tragedy of it HE IS A TIME LORD and this shouldn’t be an insurmountable obstacle for him. and she was too great of a character to end up as a footnote in the doctor’s emotional development. if they can set up his daughter for a return and do all the amazing stuff they’re doing with alex kingston, they can give sophia myles thirteen episodes of better material than fucking moonlight.
although it would really have to be tennant, or no go. if elevensies met her again it wouldn’t feel right unless ten was there as well. (a flashback to before donna? mirror ten? another clone? whatever.)
