#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:






Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling.  Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*.  She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.


#excellent tags are excellent#jfc moffat#twelfth doctor#clara oswald#the oncoming patriarchy#in contrast with#ninth doctor#rose tyler#bamf#i know that’s a lot of pictures#but i kept looking for counterexamples#and there weren’t any#someone who’s got more martha and donna promo pictures handy#should do some examples of their presentation

/w martha



/w donna




and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:

and ended like this:




The promotional poster is bad, the construction is bad. I really don’t care if Clara looks softer or more unsure here. But it’s supposed to be about the Doctor and the Companion, and they don’t even look like they have any connection - she is standing way too far, looking almost like she’s an afterthought photoshopped into the background. They don’t look like a duo.
 Meeeh, I wouldn’t call it the oncoming patriarchy or heteronormative gender roles or whatever. If she’s a well written character, she can be less confrontational and sweeter and more feminine, who cares. There are women like that, it’s hardly misogyny. You can’t say they aren’t genuine people.
But, if it would be interesting in a doctor/companion setup it’s up to debate? It would probably need a better writer than Moffat is. So far Clara is a set of tropes in cute perky body who centers everything she is around the Doctor. Every companion was still a whole person, when the doctor left or was out of the picture. With Clara….well, I don’t feel it.

Did you ever just feel so lucky for knowing someone you met online?
Like.. I was one click away from not following you. I was one second away from never even knowing of your existence. 
I would never have been this happy.
