This is your Saturday Doctor Who Tumblr Livetumblring reminder!
(and we’re pinning it this time so that nobody can say that they missed this.)
This will take place from 9p-10p EDT, after which we’ll take a break to learn some manners from Mr. Manners, put up some non-spoilery posts in between, and then livetumbl again from 9p-10p Pacific Time.
And we’re sorry. We’re so sorry but because we’re doing it in real time — there is no way for us to avoid posting spoilers during these hours.
If you need to avoid spoilers, install Tumblr Savior. <— Click that link for instructions on how to install it for all browsers. We will tag all of our posts ‘A Town Called Mercy’. If you aren’t watching it live with us and haven’t already watched the episode, block this tag. No excuses!
If you refuse to install Tumblr Savior on account of all your reasons and cannot live without your dashboard, then feel free to unfollow and refollow us. It’s cool. Whatever. See how cool we’re being? (btw, if you plan on liveblogging as well, we suggest that you warn your followers as well.)
For everyone else: meet you later in a town called Mercy.

Next Week: Rory’s pants.
We’ll post the preview for next week’s episode in a few hours.
And then we’ll write something explaining how the word ‘pants’ in England is equivalent to the word ‘underwear’ in America. And then when the English laugh at this, we’ll ask why they bother calling something a ‘lift’ when it also goes down. And then we’ll all agree that it all evens out eventually. Except for 1D. This whole paragraph would make for a great set of tags if we weren’t so knackered.
A Town Called Mercy - “Looking at you, Doctor, is like looking into a mirror, almost. There’s rage there, like me. There’s guilt, like me. Solitude. Everything but the nerve to do what needs to be done.”
That moment when you realize that the writers of Doctor Who pays attention to the same things the fandom pays attention to.
And Now For Your Moment of Liefeld:
I’m not 100% sure of who “G.C.” is but he’s most assuredly spinning in his grave right now. In addition to the usual anatomical Liefeldism we’ve come to expect, what the hell is going on with that sword? That blade is crooked as hell, yo. Do you think the guy who smithed it is still in business? What kind of rating do you think he has on Yelp?
Wait… OH MY GOD HE’S NOT EVEN REALLY HOLDING THE SWORD. IT’S JUST KIND OF HALF-HEARTEDLY FLOATING AROUND THE VICINITY OF THAT DUDE’S FIST. IS IT MAGIC? IS HE A KEYBLADE MASTER? COOLEST SWORDSMITH EVER!!
Same man, different face
