#probably the best explanation of a device in the tv history

This is literally my fourth or fifth time reblogging this.

It’s still hillarious.

One of my favorite lines

I kinda feel like the writers wrote this line specifically to drive the kind of fans who want to figure out how sci-fi tech would theoretically work crazy. They’re like “nope! We’re not going to give you any techno babble to tear apart or investigate or mull over to tell us how we’re doing it wrong, or how it compares in effectiveness to similar tech in other franchises.”

I also feel like this is one of those times when the TARDIS’s translation circuit just gave the fuck up. Like the ‘physics physics physics’ scene, where he is imparting secrets of the universe and the TARDIS is like THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THIS IN ENGLISH DAMN IT DOCTOR OH HELL FUCK IT.

OH MY GODS she TOTALLY edits his speech. I be he actually swears a fuckton but the TARDIS is like THERE ARE CHILDREN

even with those four numbers there are countless possible combinations good luck with figuring out which one is the right one you punk

*straightens calculator*
It’s pretty likely that it’s a four digit number, and as there are four digits chosen there, that means that there cannot be any repetition. This mean that there are:
n!/(n-4)! possible orders. As ‘n’ is 4 (number of digits available). 4!/0! which becomes 4x3x2x1/1 which simplifies to 24. That means that there are 24 possible combinations of codes. This would take you about two or three minutes to input all possible codes.

Unless an alarm goes off if you don’t get it right in 3 tries

*straightens calculator again*
Kick the fucking door in

well ‘technically’ the code is most likley 1970. statistically, a majority of people, when told to choose a 4 digit code will choose their birth year. and this key pad is obviously a few years old to put it nicely, thats most likley it.

some sherlock holmes shit just went down over here


No, no, no. Don’t base your deductions of psychology. Let’s talk chemistry. When you first press a button, there’s more of the natural oils on your skin, and therefore it wears down the numbers on the keys faster. Obviously 0 is the first one, then. Try 0791 first.

Sherlock out.

woah.

it got better

and this is why the sherlock fandom could either rule the world or end it….

Close, but not quite, I think. People will almost always choose a number they can remember. What’s memorable about 0791? Try 0719 - a birthday, 19th of July. That is more likely.

Those deductions are great and all, but unnecessary.
The light is green.
The door is already open.

And that’s why we have a John Watson.

Kitten Reaches Summit of Sofa, Immediately Naps
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Ever since she was a kitten, Tabby has dreamed of being a mountain climber. Today she successfully completed a test run of the sofa in her living room.
"I’m really proud her," said climbing coach Elizabeth Waters. ”This is the tallest piece of furniture she’s climbed yet.”
Though the climb only took her about 7 minutes, the effort seemed to wipe her out, and the cat celebrated her victory over the heights by promptly napping on the top cushion. That doesn’t bode well for tackling any actual mountains.
"We still need to work on Tabby’s endurance," Waters admitted. "I’m not sure how she’ll fare in the thin mountain air."

BUT MOFFAT IS SUCH A GoOD WRITER GUISE.

I mean, how many companions can really pass this test?
Name one thing about Rose’s that doesn’t involve the Doctor, her mom, her dad, Mickey, or her job when she met the Doctor. I’m drawing a blank.

When she was sixteen she dropped school and moved out because she was in love with Jimmy Stone, which resulted in her never getting her A-levels. He later broke her heart and she returned to live with Jackie.
Is that enough?
RTD may have his flaws when it comes to writing (nobody’s perfect anyway) but at least he made the effort to give us glimpses of the life the companions had before meeting the Doctor. Moffat doesn’t care because that’s obviously not that important.

Rose got the bronze in an under-sevens gymnastics tournament; Rose’s best mate was named Shareen, and they used to skip school sometimes to go to the shops and look at boys; Rose loves chips and likes pizza and tolerates football; Rose has never learned French, though Jackie thinks she should’ve.
These are all things we learn within the first six episode of series one. And that’s not counting the remarkable depth and breadth provided when one fully incorporates her parents, which were restricted despite not being on Amy’s list. And you can say BUT THAT’S NOT FAIR, AMY DIDN’T HAVE PARENTS, but lol now she does and they’ve never explored how that changed her, and LOL PETE’S DEATH HAD A MASSIVE, VISCERAL EFFECT ON ROSE AND THE PLOT OF THE SHOW AND WAS MENTIONED SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE IT WAS EXPLORED AND IT’S A PART OF HER.
Rose’s life on the Powell Estate is more vividly rendered and thoroughly examined in just the Aliens of London/World War 3 two-parter than Leadworth has been in the two seasons we’ve known the Ponds. It’s not just Rose we learn about; we learn about her family in her absence, we see Mickey and Jackie interact and learn and grow together, painting a picture of their past and building a future, because they have a relationship COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT OF ROSE. We learn that Rose is the kind of person who knows exactly where things are in her boyfriend’s kitchen, even when he doesn’t, even when she hasn’t stepped foot in his flat in a (technical temporal) year. We get cut aways to the British *and American* newscasts of plot events, for chrissake. 
I mean, I’d make similar lists for Martha and Donna, or heck, even for any of the one-off guest companions from SINGLE EPISODES in Rusty’s era who’ve had more thoroughly-painted backstories than Amy Pond, but I’d give myself carpal tunnel and sacrifice several hours typing it all out.
The two showrunners are incomparable.

I was about to say the whole bronze under sevens thing but professor spork did a much better job. None of Moffat’s companions even compare. He just doesn’t flesh them out at all.

EXACTLY
I think I’m going to ask this post to marry me I love it so much

I’m not even a Doctor Who fan and I love this analysis.

Reblogging this again. I like Amy as a character, for the potential of what she could be. But Moffat…well, he doesn’t make it easy to love her because though she is a strong, somewhat likable character, she is quite one dimensional. Her character revolves around Rory and the Doctor. I can’t name one thing she does exclusively for her. Unlike Martha, Rose, and Donna.

Seriously, did anyone have more fun making the Harry Potter movies than Kenneth Branagh?

I’m sorry but this is one of those pictures I *have* to reblog whenever it appears on my dash.

WAIT WAIT WAIT IS THIS THE GUY WHO DIRECTED AND ACTED IN HAMLET? THE PERSON IN THE HAMLET FILM THAT I’VE BEEN WATCHING IN CLASS?

Yes this is the guy!

And he also directed Thor

gilderoy lockhart directed thor? 

he also played miguel in Road to El Dorado

he literally did every shakespeare play and made the movie, playing the lead

cocky shit

or did he just wipe the directors minds and put his name in the credits?

I take exception to the majority of the casting decision in the HP movies, but there literally could not have been a more perfect choice for Lockhart.

OR DID HE JUST WIPE THE DIRECTORS MINDS AND PUT HIS NAME IN THE CREDITS
