You point a gun at my brother again, I will kick the living shite out of you. / Just don’t die. Because your first funeral was just agonizing enough.
“Felix is Sarah’s heart. They’re each other’s everything. Other than Kira in Sarah’s life, Felix is her family and who she wants to be with. They’re very much siblings, in the sense that they need each other deeply, and yet they use each other and they manipulate each other. Felix is an incredible sounding board for all of Sarah’s fears and all of Sarah’s confusion and the calm in the craziness of her life.” [x]
“Felix and Sarah are at a place in their lives where they’re both very guarded against each other, and at the same time they desperately need one another. My character isn’t super trustworthy, and Felix knows that, and as much as he deeply wants her to be there for him and for them to be a family, it’s just impossible for someone like her. Sarah wants the same thing, too, only she’s just not able to be that person he needs her to be, but other than her daughter, Felix is everything to her. At the same time you see their relationship deepen, it also begins to unravel and becomes threatened by Sarah’s relationships with these other women, these clones. Jordan Garvaris and I talked about the fact that there’s a part of Felix that is a bit jealous of Sarah, and that maybe she has a place. Perhaps after all this time, she’s found this family that she truly does belong to. So there’s an interesting betrayal that happens in their relationship as well as that deepening dependency on each other that I spoke about. It’s very much a case of two siblings who can love and hate one another in the same moment. It’s such a well-written relationship for that reason, and also Felix is hilarious and keeps Sarah from jumping off a bridge herself, so to speak. So he gives her a great deal of himself.” [x]

this is my favorite thing because they literally have THE SAME FACE
Moffat’s the kind of writer who likes watching you suffer through his intricate plot twists and turns. RTD was the kind of writer who snuck up behind you, dropped a bombshell, and then ran away cackling into the night.
plot twist: the 12th doctor is tatiana maslany. the new companion is tatiana maslany. every alien on the show is tatiana maslany. you are tatiana maslany. I am tatiana maslany. we are all tatiana maslany
we’re property. they patented us.
