My dependence on Doctor Who verges on the clinical, so this is basically a pure DW blog except for when I get too excited about Sherlock. Or I'm appreciating the beauty of Benedict Cumberbatch. THERE MAY BE SPOILERS. Thanks to Raggedy for URL graphic :)
Any actor worth his salt has a responsibility to reinvent himself from part to part.
I love when Torchwood throws Doctor Who references in the background

Many classic horror icons and other disturbing creatures share common characteristics. Pale skin, dark, sunken eyes, elongated faces, sharp teeth, and the like. These images inspire horror and revulsion in many, and with good reason. The characteristics shared by these faces are imprinted in the human mind.
Many things frighten humans instinctively. The fear is natural, and does not need to be reinforced in order to terrify. The fears are species-wide, stemming from dark times in the past when lightning could mean the burning of your tree home, predators could be hiding in the dark, heights could make poor footing lethal, and a spider or snake bite could mean certain death.
The question you have to ask yourself is this:
What happened, deep in the hidden eras before history began, that could effect the entire human race so evenly as to give the entire species a deep, instinctual, and lasting fear of pale beings with dark, sunken eyes, razor sharp teeth, and elongated faces?
To be honest that last question frightened me more that the picture.
That question is what always catches me and makes me want to reblog this
well technically these are the characteristics of a dead body, but why would we be scared of a dead body?
What Arthur would do if he could write an episode of Doctor Who.
