Doctor Who Season 8 Premiere on Tumblr | Above gifset source (x)
Doctor Who has one of the biggest and most highly engaged fandoms on Tumblr, and this weekend they were out in full force again for the 8th season premiere of the show since its reboot; this season featuring a new Doctor, redecorated TARDIS, and the redone show opening seen above, currently the most popular Doctor Who related post on Tumblr.
From Friday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 24th, 59.5k posts were made about Doctor Who by a community of 796.4k Tumblr users, earning 3.6 million notes. That’s an average of 61 notes per post, putting a single weekend of Doctor Who on par with a month’s worth of posts from the science community.
Gifsets are popular in Tumblr fandom for their ability to replay small moments that lend greater significance to characters and moments in a series that are easy to miss during a show’s initial run. The official Doctor Who Tumblr understands this about their audience and uses a lot of gifsets in their posts.
Very cleverly done.
Remember that time Daleks and Cybermen had sass-off?
THIS IS LITERALLY MY FAVE SCENE FROM DOCTOR WHO EVER I AM NOT EVEN JOKING I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE MADE A POST OF IT I THINK ABOUT THIS MORE OFTEN THAN IS NORMAL UGH IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY
No one sasses better than the Daleks and Cybermen. No one.
Russell T Davies said he wanted to do a fight between Cybermen and Daleks because it’s a battle that school kids have been having on playgrounds for decades. I think the dialogue really shows that inspiration
I can never not reblog.

“‘Come along Pond’ wasn’t invented by me at all it was invented by Matt. ‘Cause he used to, probably still does, call Karen ‘Pond’ all the time. So on the day that we were shooting the photographs of their outfits for the very first time and they were moving to get photographs of the very first shots of them in costume, he turned to Karen and said ‘Come along, Pond.’” - Steven Moffat
