Gag on the sassy Brit cuteness, darlings.
Jenna-Louise Coleman and Matt Smith attend “Doctor Who 50th Celebration” event in the ExCeL centre in London, England.
This is like that time Ewan McGregor put on a newsboy cap and rode around with a poodle in his bike basket; at some point, you have to step back from all the cute and just say, “Come ON. Give us a chance to catch our breath here.”
Right. Let’s get judgmental.
Her dress is SUPER-twee. We’re not inclined to be too bitchy about it because that style suits her to a t and she is, in effect, playing a cartoon character of sorts on the show. She sort of looks like one anyway, so you might as well go with that. We were watching one of those “Life in the TARDIS” 50th anniversary specials and when she was being interviewed, we were kind of captivated by how utterly symmetrical her face is. It’s perfectly doll-like in that Sarah Hyland kind of way. She’s right to play that up at the moment.
Having said that, those shoes are really ugly and that scalloped edge is making our eyelids twitch because we just know if we ripped it off, she’d look a lot better.
It’s hard for us to judge him because he’s just so adorable and because we’re sad that his time remaining as the Doctor can be measured in minutes, but even we have to admit that’s a cheapass looking jumper you’ve got on there, son. The jacket’s great and we LOVE the footwear and socks, but we’re distracted by that thrift store sweater. Love his hair this length.
Whovians, are you all ready for the proceedings this weekend? An Adventure in Space and Time tonight and then Day of the Doctor tomorrow? Do you feel like the BBC has done enough to commemorate the 50th anniversary? We feel like if this was an American franchise, there’d be way more of an extravaganza planned around such a big anniversary. We’re psyched for both shows, though. Can’t wait to see John Hurt as the War Doctor; can’t wait to see Tennant and Smith interacting, and yes, we’ll say it, even though it doesn’t seem to be a popular opinion: we’re kinda looking forward to seeing Rose Tyler again.
