S5EP2: The Beast Below
"I’m in the future. Like hundred of years in the future. I’ve been dead for centuries."
Rory Williams character study: Doing it properly
A tiny little character detail I always loved- Rory’s respect for the dead. Whether it’s because of his nurse’s training or some deeper reason, he’s always quietly adamant that things are done properly. Returning Alaya back to her kind, covering up the Doctor, pushing the funeral boat out to sea…whether the dead person in question is a friend or an enemy he treats them the same.
And, in The Big Bang Rory doesn’t get really angry with the Doctor until he casually steps over Amy’s dead body. Watch his face and body language! You can see how this is a man who’d willingly protect his true love’s corpse for two thousand years.
I blew into this world on a leaf. I’m still blowing. I don’t think I’ll ever land. I’m Clara Oswald. I’m the impossible girl. I was born to save the Doctor.
