AU: Clara’s Full Series | (<- Click link for more info.) Series six ends with Angels of Manhattan, which follows directly after “The Wedding of River Song”. The Doctor loses Amy and Rory at the end of Season 6. (“Asylum of the Daleks” and “The Snowmen” do not occur before or after the Season 6 finale.) Instead, Season 7 begins with the Doctor meeting a very curious, very clever, very human young woman…
S07.E01: The Black Cubes. After losing Amy and Rory, the Doctor wants to stay un-involved, hidden away, forgetting the world and all the people he tried to save. But of course, things don’t always work out as planned. Stepping out of the Pond’s house from one last visit with Rory’s father, he is confronted by the sight of hundreds of unexplained cubes, all over the ground. Unable to resist, the Doctor stays on earth to investigate. As he tries to decipher their meaning, he runs into an ordinary (but very curious) girl named Clara, whose clever retorts and cheeky grins immediately endear him to her, no matter how hard he tries to resist. Before she even knows what is happening, Clara is swept up on an adventure with the Doctor, as they join Unit in trying to solve the mystery of the Black Cubes, a mystery which leads them right up into a space ship, where Clara meets her first alien, and her clever thinking helps the Doctor defeat the alien at the last minute, and save the day. As the Doctor sweeps Clara back home in his TARDIS, he thinks he knows how this goes. He’ll ask this bright, clever woman to join him in his TARDIS, and she’ll no doubt say yes. But Clara surprises him once more, and to his surprise, declines. She talks of the children she watches, and how she can’t leave them alone without a mother, how they need her. She knows what it’s like to need a mother, after all. Dejected, the Doctor climbs back into his TARDIS, which begins to fade away as Clara makes her way back to the front door. But the Doctor can’t just give up, can he? As Clara reaches for the front door, the TARDIS re-materializes and the Doctor pops his head out with another offer. A standing date, every Wednesday, to see the universe. How can an adventurous woman like Clara refuse an offer like that?
Episodes will be posted every Saturday, with individual episode scenes to follow. Stay tuned!
The lookbook attempts to challenge the fashion industry’s preference for tall, willowy models by promoting the summer collection on beautiful models of all ages and size — including women over 40, over six foot, under five foot, and fitting a size 18. Oh, and Paralympian athlete Stefanie Reid looks every inch the glamour girl in this shoot, too.
As Franklin explains, “To showcase the range of sizes and labels at Debenhams this season, I chose models to inspire us with their own unique looks and personalities. I loved seeing the way that clothes emboldened each woman and man, and I loved being on a shoot where no two models were the same. As a commentator on the importance of seeing a broader range of body and beauty ideals in our media, I never underestimate the power of great clothes to bolster self-esteem, or the impact of imagery that celebrates difference.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
When I was a kid, you know I immigrated to the States in 1978, and I’m six years old and watching TV and I didn’t see any Asians on television. And you turn on Star Trek and there’s this Asian guy not chopping anybody up. He’s honorable, a helmsman of a spaceship, and it was a big, big deal for me to see that and have a role model.

That was the summer of 1963 - when everybody called me Stiles, and it didn’t occur to me to mind. That was before President Kennedy was shot, before the Beatles came, when I couldn’t wait to join the Peace Corps, and I thought I’d never find a guy as great as my dad. That was the summer we went to Kellerman’s.
Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.

It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
