9 December: Our fondest birthday wishes to the amazing Waris Hussein, who is 75 today!
My respect for this gentleman knows no bounds. Happy birthday, good sir, and thank you for making history in the most awesome way.
I was procrastinating, so I made a gifset instead.
I think what we’ve got here is a good old fashioned doppelgänger…
Friendly reminder that the first Doctor once told Doris Lethbridge-Stewart that all of his incarnations turned up to her husband’s funeral.
“‘But you do know, don’t you? What happens to him? How he dies?’
The Doctor smiled. ‘No,’ he said. ‘Not yet. We’ve never met, remember. But when he goes, I’m there for him. At the funeral, I mean, I’m there. All of me, in fact. The ones that knew him best carry him. We don’t usually get on, you know. But this time we make the effort. I think it works because we are all determined not to be the one to cause a fuss… for him.’ He suddenly laughed delightedly. ‘Mind you, ’ he continued, ‘we weren’t so successful at the wake. Two of us ended up almost coming to blows. I think it started over who had had the last sausage roll and suddenly they were fighting over which of them Alastair liked best.’”

He had a lovely voice […] A stick-on-a-talking-book-in-the-car-and-fall-aleep-at-the-wheel kind of voice
