This is fantastic. Amanda Palmer performing a song based on The Doctor’s Wife which is written by her husband Neil Gaiman who is assisting her along with Rory Williams himself, Arthur Darvill.
So this is Silence Is Golden, the piano version. It’s a song I wrote a while ago. Hope you like it.
Some common Moffat misconceptions (1/?) - “Amy, River and Clara’s life revolve around the Doctor”
They have always had a life outside of the Doctor - Amy and Rory grew up together, and without knowing it they grew up along with their daughter - and had perfectly ordinary lives
The Doctor met Amy as a little girl, and made his impact - but she still kept her accent - she was always Amy, and even though getting left behind by the Doctor affected her, she still managed to find love on her her own.
When she travels with him we see her constantly defying the Doctor, she has ideas on her own, and she is never fully dependent on him.
We see her regaining her parents, and we see her getting a family in form of Rory and River.
Amy’s story is about growing up, and detaching herself from the Doctor - in TPOT we see this struggle - we also so her hanging out with friends, and being normal and domestic with Rory.
The last thing we see Amy do is choosing a normal life with Rory - she actively leaves the Doctor to have a life on her own.
The first time we meet River she is leading an expedition - she is a professor, and even though The Doctor was the reason for choosing archeology (both Martha and Rose chose their careers because of the Doctor as well,but people tend to forget that) - she continue with archeology long after she finds the Doctor again
She goes on adventures on her own, she visits her parents - and occasionally she runs into the Doctor - but she manages herself perfectly fine on her own. She refuse to travel with the doctor regularly on two occasions. She also mention having dating other people.
The line “Time can be rewritten” is repeated on show several times - it shows that the characters are perfectly capable of changing the future by making other choices - River is never tied to the doctor due to their reversed timelines - being together with him was always her choice.
When she says her final goodbye to the doctor, she admits being able to cope with loosing him - meanwhile he admits having grown too attached to her.
Clara doesn’t travel with the Doctor all the time either - in NIS it seems like they only travel together on wednesdays. Clara commits her time taking care of the Maitland kids - as her mother died, and she felt a sense of obligation to her. We actually got an entire episode with Clara protecting the kids- We also get a good understanding of how close she was to her mom - we see that it was her mom who inspired her to travel, and it was her moms memory that motivated her to save the Doctor.In addition we see Clara fight Cybermen on her own, she stops herself from getting to attached to the doctor emotionally (“The trick is don’t fall in love - I do that trick every day”) - and sometime between TNOTD and TDOTD she got a job as a teacher.
So yeah - their storyline might be related to the Doctor - but we’ve seen quite detailed aspects off their life outside traveling - including family, jobs and friends.
I feel like the opening scenes of The End Of Time, where the tenth Doctor realises something has gone wrong in time on the Ood Sphere could easily be rewritten so it is set in Cardiff and the Doctor is talking with “Moffat Sigma”. it would go as follows.
The Doctor looks upon the story lines that Moffat Sigma has written for The Day Of The Doctor and The Time Of The Doctor:
"Oh amazing! Oh c’mon that is amazing! The Time War was fixed, Gallifrey saved, the Doctor is now facing his final incarnation and how to regenerate past that! You’ve achieved all this in how long?"
(Dramatic pause, the Doctor looks in horror)
"Then we’ve got a problem! Cos all of this is way too fast! Last time I checked, I was the tenth Doctor, I had at least three other faces to go. Somethings accelerated your story lines way beyond normal"
"And the mind of the Moffat is troubled Doctor, something has happened to the 50th Anniversary"
