The Doctor wouldn’t. He’d find another way.
and the thing is Moffat is 100% right because regardless of if he called himself “The Doctor” during the Time War he was still the Doctor deep deep down and in the end he saves lives, and he saved his people
"I lack the creativity to imagine characters being forced to make difficult choices, especially since my understanding of said characters is surface-deep at best. Sometimes I think about writing real emotional consequences to things, but then I remember how much easier it would be to avoid consequences whatsoever with some bizarre winding hole-filled plot. I am a professional writer who overcomes difficulty writing a scene by shoving in a contrived loophole so I don’t have to write it. Please punch me in the face."
As RTD wrote it, he didn’t save his people, he saved the rest of the universe from his people. by destroying them. A much more difficult and courageous thing to do.
Like, did he not watch the Tennant finale, The End of Time??? Where he reveals that the Time Lords had turned bad,
"Had turned bad"? Dude, the Doctor’s been railing against the Time Lords since at least the Sixth Doctor. During "Trial of a Time Lord", we find out they had destroyed nearly all life on Earth to protect their secrets. Hell, that’s WHY the Doctor was on trial; they knew he’d be pissed and were trying to get him out of the way.
Let’s be clear people: The Time Lords are NOT good guys. At ALL. And they haven’t been for a very long time. Frankly, the revelations in “The End of Time” are… not really that surprising when you look at the series over all, and some of the shit the Time Lords have pulled in the past.
"In all my travelling throughout the universe, I have battled against evil, against power-mad conspirators. I should have stayed here. The oldest civilisation: decadent, degenerate, and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans, Cybermen - they’re still in the nursery compared to us. Ten million years of absolute power. That’s what it takes to be really corrupt.”
-The Doctor (The Ultimate Foe, 1986)
look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
Hulk sick of new Bird Friends.
Bohemian Rhapsody is no one’s favorite song, but also everyone’s favorite song. Like, when someone asks what your favorite song is you never say Bohemian Rhapsody but when it starts playing on the radio I am pretty sure you crank it up and belt out every single lyric and you don’t even care you’re so proud.
DC are going through a mid-life crisis, it’s like they’re trying to show their ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ and ‘down with the kids’. And in reality it’s like your Dad at an embarrassing meeting with your friends.
The main difference being that most of our dads are not obsessed with gore, death, misogyny, racism, homophobia, wiping away history, and cynicism
You don’t know my dad, do you?

Went to an advance screening of “Transcendence” tonight, and from the previews, sort of felt like getting to say I saw it early and free might be the best I could say for it, but wow, was I glad to be so very, very wrong!!
So the non-spoiler highlights: Smart movie, occasionally a little heavy handed with the social commentary, but then I remind myself that some people do require being beat with a clue by four to get it, so you must take a little of that with any smart movie. Not terrible science, the only element my dad had a problem with I explained my logic-ing out of the physics for and he’s now on board with it. Johnny Depp was good, not over the top, and dare I say at times even subtle? Reminded me of why I loved him so much after seeing Chocolat. Morgan Freeman is always the man, and Cillian Murphy is just hot, no matter what, even in a secondary role. Paul Bettany is precious as always. Wish there’d been a few more female characters, as I’d say it just squeaks past the Bechdel test (thanks to one scene, if I remember it correctly.) but Rebecca Hall and Kate Mara are great. It’s a true science fiction movie, to be sure, but at it’s heart, it was a love story (with the dark messy parts of love and grief in there too), and it didn’t let me down at the end. I’m used to a lot of potential with no follow through, but this worked for me. I probably should have been less surprised by the smart movie aspect, given that Christopher Nolan was one of the producers, but you can’t always judge a movie by the producer. And there were some great geek jokes scattered through the movie for the tech savvy geeks!
Anyway, long story short - if you like a good, smart sci-fi movie or a good love story or just Johnny Depp doing it well, you should go see it! It’s not being marketed well for the film that it is.
