I don’t think they’re touching enough
Behind the scenes of The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit
Excerpts from director James Strong’s “Director’s Diary” (DWM #372)
It’s our last night in the quarry, and we hang David off a cliff to represent him abseiling into the pit… We had him about 20 feet in the air, with wires and a safety harness attached to his chest, which made him really uncomfortable, but the effect is incredible. I love this scene - such a beautiful, sad, brave moment, as the Doctor unclips himself and hints of his feelings for Rose, before falling into the abyss. Now David hangs some 100 feet in the air, off the side of the quarry wall, and we just manage to get the shot before we fracture any of David’s ribs.
[Shooting with David & Billie on the TARDIS set] - We do the scene where they’re reunited, and you’d have to be a Cyberman to not be touched by their genuine affection for each other. I didn’t know it then, but this is the last scene that Billie Piper shoots on Doctor Who. What a truly special and proper way to end such an amazing journey. Russell, Phil, and the entire production team gather for the final shots. … Tears and champagne all around! It’s a wrap!
I have so many behind-the-scenes photos from this two-parter that I should probably do a “Part 2” photoset in the future.
All of my previous behind-the-scenes photoset posts can be found here.
I was wondering why the 1st one looks so familiar then it hits me…
we should talk more about how ‘macaroni’ in 18th century england was used to mean ‘fashionable’ because a bunch of rich young dudes went to italy and really liked the stuff there
language is weird
humans are weird
HE DID IT AGAIN
Robert Downey Jr has started calling Chris Evans “Dorito”. So at this point I’m convinced Chris Evans is touching everyone as much as possible on purpose. Like markruffalo sat everyone down in between scenes just the other day and educated them on all the Avenger cast memes.

"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.
I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.
How dare women try to have nipples.
Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.
ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.
