Sadly, the evidence is rather damning.
[ Gives the pup a fond scratch behind the ears. ]
I might have had him tucked under my shirt.
[ He totally had it in his pocket, though. The Doctor hands the puppy to her so she can hold it. ]
Don’t get too attached; I’ve only borrowed him. His name is Gus. Well, Gustav, but really, what sort of name is Gustav for a dog?
( ooc: Ahhhh hello!! Good to hear from you. I’m alright, just a bit tired a lot of the time from work and stuff. :p How about youuuu? )
"Oh, you know Alistair, do you?" This seemed to set Kay more at ease. He smiled a little and everything, made him look years younger. "Met him a few years ago when I was investigating… well, it’s not important.” Couldn’t go on about his work to a civilian.
”UNIT’s been a huge help since the beginning of MiB. Might of heard your name floating around, Doc. Didn’t imagine you were anything like… well…” He looked the other up and down, his eyes lingering longer on the bow tie.
Apparently bringing up the Brigadier had been a good choice, this time around. Of course, it had been a good choice the last time around, too. Some things never changed — and the Brigadier, despite his work-first, play-never nature, was entirely charismatic. Good leaders tended to be.
“I’m his scientific advisor. Will be - will be his scientific advisor. Right now I’m more just-“ The Doctor wrinkled his nose. How would he describe his relationship with the Brigadier from before his exile? “…an occasional ally.”
"…not to say that I was an enemy when I wasn’t an ally — I just wasn’t around all
the time, is all.”
Only a bit?
[ Modestly — ]
I may have. Once, or twice, during my time on Earth.
Have you ever donned a leather jacket and some overly tight jeans? [ She’s definitely thinking of John Travolta in Grease. ]
[ Subtle eyebrow quirk. ]
—Nice and flowy, aren’t they? Like spring.
At least, I’d imagine they’re most comfortable in spring. Are they most comfortable in spring?
[ No, he’s not thinking about trying on a poodle skirt for size, why do you ask? ]
And I have, actually. Though the trousers weren’t overly tight. Tight trousers equate to tight pants which tend to make it a bit hard to run, which is an astoundingly imperative action in my line of… life.
Did you —
— just pull a corgi out of your pocket?
—Or, as they say in Buckingham Palace…
See? It’s just like I said.
( ooc: I totally get why people are upset about it, but then I don’t get why they aren’t also equally upset about the multitude of non-consensual kisses the Doctor has gotten from other people, which vastly outnumber the times he has done it. I’m pretty sure most of the reasoning behind criticising the Doctor and not particularly any of his companions is because people think the Doctor actually enjoys it, but that’s kind of a gross assumption, too.
Also, I personally do not believe that kiss is a reason to criticise Moffat because 1) it was not his script, and even if it had been 2) the kiss itself was unscripted and a quasi-improv created by and agreed upon by the two actors involved. )
