Gateway to hogwarts ?????
#I really want to take a second to praise David for his acting here #because all you need to do is look at his face and you can see that everything is absolutely horribly wrong #and the most terrible part is how subtle it is #he doesn’t look outright panicked or distraught #he looks passive #and that’s the worst expression the doctor can have #because at least when there’s fear or desperation you know he doesn’t want to give up #you know he’s going to fight and he’s going to keep trying #but this is resignation #pure resignation #he realizes exactly what’s happened and what has to happen and how much it is going to tear him apart #and that face says there is no other option #all he can do is let it happen #it burns him alive but he can’t show it #he knows he can’t because it’s going to be hard enough for her #and he needs to be strong here #he needs to shut down and be as cold and detached as he can get #because it’s better than letting the pain in #it’s better than showing her exactly how much this is going to kill him #because that will only make it worse #that face says more in its subtleties than it ever could in outright expression #bravo David #truly
the first time i saw this episode and this part happened i was completely terrified that the Doctor wasn’t happy. I was terrified because I KNEW that if everything should be okay and the Doctor is not happy, that means things are worse than the crisis he’d just escaped. Worse because somehow, in some way, he knew he’d be losing someone he loved. And that there was no way around it because it would save them.
Because happy holidays
