hey remember when clara oswald told a robot threatening her with torture to suck it

remember when clara oswald convinced the time lords to give the doctor another regeneration cycle

remember when clara oswald convinced the doctor to save his species and consequently saved the lives of billions of innocent people

remember when clara oswald sacrificed her life to save the doctor’s and consequently everybody in the universe

remember when clara oswald saved an entire planetary system

remember when clara oswald told the doctor she wouldn’t be a replacement

remember when clara oswald helped a little girl because she looked lost and volunteered to look after two children despite having a degree and desires to travel

remember when clara oswald was influenced by her mother and made soufflés based on her recipes and kept her book of adventures and inherited her desire to travel and be compassionate and save people who are lost and volunteers to look after a family because she knows what it’s like to lose a mother

remember when clara oswald was always a control freak and decided when and where the doctor would meet her and how he’d behave around her and always panicked when she lost control of him or the situation

remember when clara oswald was always more scared than she let on and despite the doctor’s declarations of how “impossible” she was the narrative kept telling us she was a “perfectly ordinary girl” and she proved this by making a brave decision that didn’t rely on any superhuman ability or circumstance

remember when fandom literally ignored all of this and pretended she had less personality than a cyberman head and suddenly loves her after one episode despite clara oswald simply displaying the same characteristics she’s always shown but everybody’s ignored until now

Making Legs For Future Robotic Animal Assistants

University of South Florida computer engineer Luther Palmer is working on one of the big problems in robotics—creating legs that can move over all different types of terrain that a machine would find out in the real world. His team at the Biomorphic Robotics Lab is doing intensive computer modeling and taking tips from horses and humans on agile locomotion.

The team’s vision, like many other roboticists, is to imbue the best movement ideas developed through evolution into their machines. Palmer writes on his lab’s website that in the future, “robotic canines will gallop up stairs and over collapsed beams in burning buildings, locating occupants for rescue personnel.”

He also sees a time of robotic horses to carry heavy loads, cockroaches to conduct surreptitious surveillance and gophers to prepare alien worlds for human habitation. 

See the National Science Foundation video  and one for Palmer’s RecoRoach below.

Twelve may not be polite according to British standards, but brutal honesty is its own kind of politeness. I love it. This scene is really fucking important and, although I’ve got nothing against the Doctor/Clara ship (or any other ship, for that matter), I’m so happy the Doctor finally said it and that they’re both fine with it. And the fact that he mockingly, but gently, refers to Eleven as her “boyfriend” a moment later cements how self-aware and direct Twelve can be, and how much he values honest communication. … For now. 

Basically so far, this is a Doctor who would go “by the way, Lucie, your auntie Pat was a Zygon warlord all along, are we alright?” and I have a feeling it’s going to drastically change the show in all sorts of wonderful ways. 

I was really, really happy that Twelve took responsibility for his own behaviour as Eleven and realised that he had perhaps not treated Clara as well as he might have. Which, this is perhaps me reading into things a bit, but I would SOSOSO LOVE this scene to function as the Doctor going, ‘I was a bit of a dick, I’m sorry, let’s lay things out for future clarification’.

No ok this was so important though. Because this sentiment was actually repeated twice in the episode, once by Vastra (“he flirted with you”), and once by Twelve right here. The episode points out that they had been creeping closer to a Clara/Doctor ship situation and that it was problematic, and then really explicitly says Clara isn’t the one at fault here, that Eleven was being cryptic and misleading in a manipulative way (regardless of his intentions), and then makes a point of Twelve setting the record straight and resolving to not be a total creep anymore and recognizing he had wronged her.

it wasn’t a total fix on the rest of the sexist shit moffat’s pulled but its a really big step forward (seemingly from Capaldi’s influence, given the recent interviews), and I hope the show continues in this direction.

Deep deep down, I reckon John has quite a lot of potential

Making Stan Lee seem like a good actor since 2014.

Once you put those shoes down, your left hand did not know what to do.
