what happened to this doctor
when did we go from saving everybody to sacrificing people who you promised that you could save, people that trusted you
when did the doctor get so obsessed with proving that he is right rather than actually trying to save people or change things for the better, he has to be the one to say I told you so
what happened to nobody is unimportant and every life matters
why is the doctor changed so much that his morals are different, people are indispensable all of a sudden

What I loved about this ep was 12’s need that the Dalek finds something other than his hate for them.

And I also don’t know if 12 is a good man. Because with 9, I would have said: yes! Because he didn’t kill so readily. With 10, definitely yes because my precious baby was too enthusiastic about everything and everyone (except Dalek’s and Cybermen).

11 I mostly just fast forwarded because I missed the writing and influence of RTD and also companions that didn’t set my toes to sleep (sorry, not sorry). I never got the hang of him.

But 12…I think he might just be the darkest of them. Or the less accessible one. Or maybe we just didn’t see him fanboy over something and be childishly happy about something or someone, yet. I hope he gets that chance. And I think, 9 or 10 would have given Blue at least a lift to somewhere else, not being so cold to her. They would have acknowledged her situation because, frankly, 12 was just as ready to kill first and ask later when it came to the Daleks, right?

So far, much better than 11 and I’m intrigued but imho I also think, he’s much much darker.

I live in New York and I love it, because it doesn’t make me feel like my life is always just about acting and that world of acting. I don’t have expectations.

The truth is that there are a lot of people like you, us, with strange hobbies or talents or gifts and we try to hide it because we’re afraid that it makes us seem weird or it will turn people off, but that’s a mistake. What makes me unique has brought every person I love into my life.

suzi eszterhas spent over two years following three cheetah families in kenya’s masai mara. her photos are chronicled in “a future for cheetahs.” here we see two mothers, one with her five twelve-day old cubs (2,3,6-9) and one with her six week old cub (1,4,5). 

at birth, the tiny cubs are blind and weigh about 250 to 425 grams. they will live in a secluded den for the next six to eight weeks, being moved by their mom regularly from nest site to nest site to avoid predators.

the mortality rate for cheetahs under three months of age is 95 percent, and sadly all five of the cubs seen at twelve days old would die within the next week from predation by jackals and birds of prey. happily, the six week old cub seen here survived.

unlike other big cats, cheetahs rely entirely on their speed for defence. as an evolutionary trade off for this speed, cheetahs have small canine teeth — which allows for a larger nasal passage to take in more air when running — and dull, small claws — which is  great for running but so much for fighting.  this leaves slower cheetah cubs vulnerable to lions, leopard and hyenas, in addition to the aforementioned jackals and birds of prey.
