~I saved the planet before it was cool~
I'd like to thank the academy...
Hipster 10 was inspired by this post on livejournal (and comments) and the hipster Little Mermaid tumblr, and voilà!
...then I discovered there was already one for Eleven. UMM, OOPS. So this one is for all Doctors (and Masters, and Companions, etc.) As since this was the first tumblr I ever made, it shows up as the one I reblog/like/follow with. However my (real) more personal tumblr, for which I do other fandom-related things, is linked below.* So odds are, I'll talk to you under fyeahhipsterdoctor, but reblog you under sombrero unless I find it relevant to here.
Same person, really. Though I recently started doing "off-topic Tuesdays" where I post random non-Whoniverse or hipster-related stuff here without feeling guilty.
Sometimes I get political on here. I try not to let it happen too often, (though be warned, that as a New Yorker affected by it, I am almost guaranteed to post remembrance posts on 9/11) and when I do I try to post something Doctor Who related soon after. If it bothers you let me know, and to those of you with tumblr savior blacklist "not doctor who related at all" or "sombrero does other stuff".
tbh, sometimes I feel like tumblr is more invested in Leo winning an oscar than he is
The new Doctor’s ‘costume’ has been revealed.
Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: “He’s woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.” While lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat added: “New Doctor, new era, and of course new clothes. Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over - Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you!”

This is so awesome. Ermergerd
Reminds me very much of Three
and there’s no screwdriver *strokes chin* curious…
I really want Harry Watson in Sherlock and I really want her to be played by Alex Kingston
"hello there little brother."
"I am not your little brother.”
"yes you are, you’ve got dad’s genetics, you’re shorter than I am."
I DID NOT KNOW HOW MUCH I NEEDED THIS UNTIL NOW
THIS IS 900% YES I NEED THIS GIVE IT TO ME
in which the Doctor is very heterosexual
This is one of the reasons why I love Doctor Who, they really just do not give a shit about sexuality. In series 1 episode 2 a fucking tree woman fancied the Doctor. They’ve had lesbians, lesbian lizard women, gays, interspecies relationships, Jack, a transgender horse and so much more. If there were such a thing as a LGBT safe show it’s Doctor Who.
And I think the best part of it is that they don’t go overboard trying to emphasize it. A lot of shows that have lesbian, gay, bi, trans, or any other orientated couple/character kind of throw it in your face like lOoK WOw GaY iS OkaY, LOoK hoW LGBT-FRieNdLY wE ArE, but with Doctor Who they just have some random people doing what they have to do and being bad ass and then somewhere along the way you find out their sexual preferences but they don’t make a big deal out of it.
My favourite thing in all of Doctor Who is Sky from Midnight referring to her ex as “she”, and the reaction. There was no reaction. The Doctor didn’t look shocked, the music didn’t change, the atmosphere didn’t change, her ex is not a plot point. She just happened to be gay. Like in real life. I love that.
