I just needed to reblog this again.
Because jfc, you don’t understand how important this scene is to me.
Or maybe you do!
Because it has Jack openly showing his affection and admiration for two people of different gender in the exact same way, making no difference at all, and neither do Rose nor the Doctor. Zilch. No hesitating, no flinching, no comic relief.
I wish it could be like this more often.
That scene up there is doing everything right, end of story. And while Jack’s sexuality is often made out to be something to smile at, it’s also shown as very natural and Nine was just cool with that, no reason not to be.
FAVOURITE DOCTOR WHO EPISODES - 1x09/10 - The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances
Saul Metzstein: The really interesting shot we did [there], which is what Doctor Who has always wanted to do and never actually done, is the shot when you see the TARDIS as a box and you go into it in one shot. And we finally managed to do the “It’s bigger on the inside” shot.
I was actually thinking about this today when I rewatched the episode! I was like “Oh wow, they’ve never done that before.”
