even the most talented of witch doctors.
With a simple touch, he brings the dead back to life,
no matter how deep the wound, how cold the heart.
The newly undead often begin speaking immediately,
unaware they are continuing a pre-death conversation,
and the person with whom they were speaking with
has most likely moved on to finish conversations
with other people, rowing through countless bars,
searching for a warm face to touch, a dress to
go home with, someone to keep grief from
pulling up a chair at the table and eating everything
"I am a Mohawk woman… You cannot ask me to speak as a woman because I cannot speak as just a woman. That is not the voice that I have been given. Gender does not transcend race. The voice that I have been given is the voice of a Mohawk woman and if you must talk about me about women, somewhere along the line you must talk about race."

you know this is my most popular gifset by far but I don’t know if people noticed in my original tags on it I wrote “and it was never mentioned again”. This is really typical of his writing. He randomly introduces this small thing that affects all of canon but then never mentions it again. The TARDIS has always made that noise why are we suddenly being told that it’s just the Doctor leaving the breaks on for 900+ years? And, if we are supposed to believe this, why is it never ever mentioned again. The TARDIS continues to make the noise we’ve all come to love and recognize and this line is forgotten. But I think it’s really representative of Moffat’s writing to do something like this and I find it to be very irritating. Of course I would rather this line be forgotten rather than the TARDIS noise suddenly stop existing, but why include something like this in the first place. Especially when it has an impact on the whole show and not just his own stories (as he tends to do /cough john hurt cough/)
This “joke” is actually extremely disrespectful to the people who worked hard to make the original TARDIS sound, way back in 1963. They wanted a sort of almost ripping noise, which is the sound of the TARDIS “ripping” through time and space. They spent a great deal of time and work to create this unique sound, so to say that the TARDIS isn’t supposed to make the noise is extremely disrespectful of the work they put into this iconic sound. Not to mention that every Time Lord seen flying a TARDIS also makes this sound, so canonically, it’s not true. When Romana flies the TARDIS, WITH THE MANUAL, it makes the sound. When the Master flies his TARDIS, it makes the sound. When a Time Lord flies a TARDIS, it makes the sound. Flying the TARDIS means making the sound.
