While I was thinking about Doctor Who today instead of studying, I realized that to me, each of the companions represents one of the important themes of the show. I kinda want to write down all my thoughts on this subject since my brain will need something to do now that I’m out of school. I don’t know, all this will probably get lost in the depths of the internet, but what else is Tumblr for really besides sharing stuff you can’t anywhere else?
“A breeze touches his brow. Far out where the gulf deepens, small waves kick up, gather, then collapse, and new ones replace them; and this, even as he watches, repeats itself, and will do endlessly whether he is her or not to observe it: that is what he sees. In the long vista of time he might already be gone. It is time, not space, he is staring into.”—David Malouf, Ransom
