Why do you like Jo? she's a dumb blonde stereotype, and is basically just as bad as rose.

  • 'dumb blonde' was literally the opposite of what they were trying to get across
  • a lot of her character and story comes from her showing she’s much more than a ‘dumb blonde stereotype’ which is what the doctor basically regarded her as when they first met
  • seriously so much of her plot is just devoted to showing just what a caring, selfless person she is
  • to the point where she’s ready to give up her life without a second thought for the safety of others
  • despite this, she /considers/ herself a ‘dumb blonde’ and there are occasional hints that she’s very conscious of what other people think of her
  • she’s a major influence on three’s character and they make a point to show how she’s helped him develop into a friendlier and more hopeful character
  • she’s funny
  • she’s brave
  • she’s optimistic in a very endearing way
  • the episodes she’s in tend to be very fun and some of the most creative, in my opinion (the green death, carnival of monsters, terror of the autons, and the daemons, just to name a few)
  • she’s a great foil to about every other character on the show
  • going on that, her relations to the other characters (especially the doctor) add a lot to the episodes she’s in
  • katy manning is a wonderful actor and she just shines in her portrayal of Jo
  • I think she has one of the most well-acted, lovingly written, and just all around perfect departures the show has ever had
  • her companion chronicles are some of the best and katy does the voices perfectly
  • (rose isn’t a ‘dumb blonde stereotype’ either)
  • She’s fab as hell
  • don’t ever insult jo grant
  • what show are you even watching

The Mountain Goats - Game Shows Touch Our Lives

People say friends don’t destroy one another
what do they know about friends?

Thunderclouds forming, cream white moon
Everything’s going to be ok soon
Maybe tomorrow
Maybe the next day

why does mr. peanut want people to eat his brethren

Because he’s been promised safety if he convinces people to buy Planter’s Peanuts.

If their sales drop a certain amount, he is in danger of consumption.

Nobody could start as an Audio-Original Character that actually appears in the show.

"A beard was a growth of facial hair which was common among humanoids."

Was.

I’m sorry to say this but your beard is endangered.

Oh, please no!

I love my Beard.

It’s my closest friend.

There was a time when I would say “Nobody can beat the Master as my favorite Doctor Who villain.”

I’m listening to Forty-Five. His powers ring true.

I’m sure a lot of you already read XKCD but this is very very important.
"Defending a position by citing free speech is kind of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express."
