Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has revealed that there will be no flirting between the Doctor and his assistant Clara Oswald in the forthcoming series.
New Time Lord Capaldi, 56, has said that he was “adamant” that there will be “no Papa-Nicole moments”.
When asked about the age gap between himself and his 28-year-old co-star Jenna Coleman, Capaldi said: “They’ll be no flirting, that’s for sure. It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with. It’s quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments.’ I think there was a bit of tension with that at first but I was absolutely adamant.”"
not being at comic con like
there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out
Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life”
Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth
Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him
that’s why Trelawney made that assumption
TRELAWNY WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT SEER SHE JUST MESSED UP SOMETIMES AND ACTED A LITTLE GOOFY SO NO ONE TOOK HER SERIOUSLY
No, guys. She was a terrible seer. She only ever had 2 real visions. The point of her guessing midwinter was that it is the complete opposite of midsummer, when Harry is actually born, and therefore the wrongest she could be. It was to show that she was a fake. Besides, Voldemort wasn’t even born in midwinter. He was born in early winter. December 31st is only 10 days into winter.
Look, Trelawny is a great character. She’s a great woman. She’s fantastically insane. She is not a great seer. Stop trying to make her one, and love her for all the other amazing things she is.
And while we’re at it, stop romaticizing Snape’s love for Lily, and stop making James seem like the bigger ass. Snape was a creeper. He may not have been one of the bad guys, but he definitely wasn’t a good man. He chose to let her husband and son die so that she could live, like that was going to make her finally fall in love with him. No. That’s insane. James willing died so that she and Harry had a chance to live. That’s love.
do not pity the dead, harry, pity the living, and above all those who cannot go to comic con
