Not Ophelia (most days)


Valerie. 44. Chicagoland. Actress, office drone, and fledgling digital media professional. I do not suffer snobs gladly.

Here you will find things Pre-Raphaelite, fannish obsessions, fabulous fashion, gorgeous humans, and awe-inspiring nature.

That man is still in there somewhere. You have to find him.

I LOVE CHAPLAIN MARK. I wish we’d gotten more Chaplain Mark. But what we got was marvelous.

 Russell Tovey: Doctor Who role would have terrified me | Radio Times

In a parallel universe where Matt Smith had turned left, Russell Tovey is the eleventh Doctor that could have been. The former Being Human star, seen last night in new ITV sitcom The Job Lot, has revealed that he auditioned for the role before Smith was cast.
Tovey, who previously featured as sailor Alonso Frame (pictured above) in Doctor Who Christmas special Voyage of the Damned, said he screen-tested for the part of the Time Lord after Russell T Davies suggested him as a replacement for David Tennant’s tenth Doctor.


This makes me grin as a quasi-formal confirmation that they would in fact consider a Doctor who has previously appeared as a guest star. Obviously there’s precedent for companions (both Freema Agyeman and Karen Gillan) and for classic Doctors (Colin Baker), but it’s still nice to hear.

I’m not asking you to do anything. - You are! You are asking me to look away and I can’t look away any more, because I have looked away. With you.

I will always value Being Human for its core of love and hope, and regard the pain and darkness as not-always-entirely-necessary evils.

That said, however, I think “The Longest Day” will stand the test of time as the most brilliant and powerful solid hour they produced.

All because they do not wish the pain they’ve endured on another soul.
