Dedicated to the magnificence that is Christopher Eccleston, particularly as the Ninth Doctor.
Thank you for making this gifset! During my rewatch this summer, I thought this scene was so “Doctor”-y that it could have been played by any of them. Silly yet completely serious. But Christopher Eccleston adds a sort of…I dunno…thing to it, like he’s really really talking to the sonic screwdriver like it has a mind of its own, and maybe it does. (*insert one smutty thought about Nine using the sonic as a bedroom enhancement with Rose. Just one tiny little thought*) And then to have the Twelfth Doctor come out of the TARDIS and say “Shush” to Strax confirmed the fact that I AM RIGHT ABOUT NINE. It’s nice to have that verified, ha ha.

#Fanart#manip#Nine x Rose#I just need a thief/police AU#Or you know hacker/fbi AU#something where she leaves him clues and notes and he’s even met her a few times (not that he knows it)#because she’s got a particular talent for disguise#and they’ve profiled her but it’s all wrong—they think she’s a man#(because no woman could be that clever apparently)#and in her 30’s#they think she comes from money#but he doesn’t#there’s something in his bones that tells him they’re all wrong#She’s got this unpredictable streak too#because she steals from awful people—pedophiles and fronts for drug cartels and the mafia#people who have made their fortune on the misery of others#and half the time when they’re hunting her they find (giftwrapped and signed with a kiss)#all sorts of incriminating evidence on the victim (via isilienelenihin)
Nine is my fave. Holy shit is Nine my fave. Precious, snarky, beautiful, Nine.
Trying to put into words just how much I adore Nine is a little beyond me right now, but they just don’t write them like this any more.
I did get your original ask but thanks for sending it again. :)
The elevator part is funny and so him.
The immediate joy he expresses when he learns Rose is still alive is wonderful.
All of the banana parts during The Doctor Dances are fantastic. Bananas are good. Good source of potassium. Not great weapons.
