Hello! My name is Cassie, and I’m a fangirl for William Hartnell. Site Construction is in Progress!
My dear pal tom-the-bakers-son has a brand new William Hartnell-focused tumblr account. Very cool “real life” photographs and stills of his non-Who roles. I love it! Mr. Hartnell was a very fascinating, complex man and accomplished film actor. Check it out!
I’m not sure I could put it into adequate words, if you want the truth, but I’ll try; something about the sparkle in those beautiful crystal blue eyes. Those absolutely magnificent arched black eyebrows and thick raven hair. That slightly crooked but dazzling smile.
And something about the way Pat put every last ounce of his energy into his performance. It was evident that Pat’s first love was acting, and I adore the passion, vigour and vitality I see on screen whenever I watch him at work. I would have loved the chance to sit down with him and just listen to him talk about his life. Or about anything else, really. Nearly thirty years after his death, I still find him utterly enchanting.
Odd question, but the answer is no. There is absolutely nothing about Pat’s appearance that bothers me in the slightest. To me he’s one of the hottest men who ever lived. And considering his formidable prowess with the ladies - something which continued to the end of his life, by all accounts - that seems to have been a popular opinion back in the day.
He always looked like a man, not a boy, something I really appreciate. I would’ve gladly had him until his very last day on this earth.
Pat’s character, Xavier, in Bognor: Unbecoming Habits….omfg.
Just, yes. Yes. Beautiful.
Why do I sound shocked? Patrick is just great at playing literally any kind of character!
But oh god, Xavier is an easy favorite. Even if I wasn’t a Trout-fan I’d find Xavier marvelous and delicious. Then…
Oh how I’d love to indulge in sins of the flesh with Father Xavier…
I am fully convinced Steven Moffat has sold his soul to Satan in exchange for people to praise his shitty writing and retconning of Classic Who. “Listen” was truly one of the absolute worst episodes I’ve ever seen. Actually it was merely boring for the most part, which would’ve been fine. But then it became garbage at the end with the truly moronic reveal. A bad script that most of the fans are masturbating to.
And for the record, I *really* like Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. He’s excellent, brilliant even. But I’m sick of Clara. If Steven Moffat ever posted that story on Whofic or ff.net, he would get feedback saying, “Nice Mary Sue writing, you hack.” The Doctor’s companions are COMPANIONS, not saviors of the friggin’ universe and superheroes saving the Doctor thru time and giving him lines and philosophies he uses as an adult. Enough already. And what the bloody hell is he doing sleeping in a barn?
I am a 12th Doctor fan, I liked “Into the Dalek” and “Robot of Sherwood” (PAT CAMEO!) but just as easy as I started watching and enjoying the new episodes, I can just as easily go back to the Classics and stick with them because they will always be better.
