eirienne replied to your post: Still about Miss Fisher, I loved how in ‘Dead Air’…Hah, YES. It was so much fun when she just reacted immediately and went “That voice…”. I was very happy when that happened. And also the Archie thing - she was enjoying teasing him about being Archie so much. And it was rather adorable.
His voice belongs in that pantheon where Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Armitage’s belong as well if you ask me.
It was so adorable I may have screamed even if it was broad daylight and people could hear me.
I almost want Archie to become an endearing term for him, but that’s the stuff fanfiction is made of.
Oh, yes. I hadn’t really thought about his voice THAT much before, but you know, the more I think about it, the more…well. I would also like to add Toby Stephens’ voice to the list. :)
And screaming in broad daylight when people can hear you is a definite high mark on the adorableness scale.
He has such a great voice. It was one of the first things I noticed and I thought it went very well with the dark and restrained Jack of S1 (I mean he still is dark and restrained sometimes but he has been opening up lately and I want to cry).
I still have yet to see Toby Stephens in something time enough to give my opinion properly, but I have bought the Jane Eyre DVD and I hope it happens soon.
Thank you for thinking that, because I’m pretty sure if anyone has actually heard me scream not only have they been very puzzled but they may have thought I fell over or something.
You know what’s adorable as well? That gif and your tags.
Oh, YES, you have to watch that Jane Eyre, it’s my absolute favourite adaptation of Jane Eyre of all time, ever. Yes, it might not be completely accurate all of the time, but I think it really captures the feel of the book, and Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens are just perfect for their roles.
And well, it was a nice gif, but let me see if I can find a proper huggy one?
There we go! Let’s just embrace (ha, see what I did there?!) our adorableness and be awesome.
Steven Moffat Appreciation
One of the most touching tributes to come out of the Doctor Who 50th special was the one to the fans through the character of Osgood. There, in the background of what was the most important negotiation in history, without anyone noticing, Osgood saved the world.
She could have easily sabotaged the Doctor’s plan by telling Kate to check her pockets, but instead of choosing to divide, Osgood chose to be kind. Becoming the bridge, the one who was willing to connect with what everyone had been so afraid of.
She had been neither cruel nor cowardly. And I think that’s why Steven wrote her in wearing the scarf. Because, really, anyone, anywhere, through kindness and courage, can be the Doctor. If that’s not the greatest tribute to the fandom, I don’t know what is.
This is a very sweet and under-appreciated moment — a romantic date for her birthday. Ice skating and a personalized concert. Can you imagine The Doctor Ice skating? And he brought Stevie Wonder out of his own time just to sing for her. No chasing down Sontarans. No trying to save the universe. No drama. No tragedy. Just a cute romantic date with his wife.
#these are the kind of grand sweeping gestures#and bless #he put his life in River’s hands with the ice skating#this is the doctor trying to outdo himself #trying to surprise river #and it’s brilliant#imagine all the other birthdays and dates and blissful littel moments in the midst of madcap adventures#like rain gods #where they’re just ridiculously happy and in love#because they have centuries of that #between the timey-wimey #and the tragedy (via goddessdel)
