He hugs everybody, he says hello to everybody, he remembers the name of everybody’s kids. He’s been such an extraordinary ambassador for the show. And while, as you can see, he’s not really like the Doctor – he’s quite a different man, all that eccentricity was performance – I can now honestly say that the way Matt carries himself as the Doctor is something of which the Doctor would be immensely proud.Steven Moffat (watch to see Matt’s face x)
I think Black people are not afforded the luxury of existing without being pigeonholed into an aggressive state of being. Many times Black people are displayed as hyper-aggressive and because of this display we create a mentality that were stuck with hyper-aggressiveness.
That isn’t to say that being strong, tough, or aggressive are bad things, they come with our survival. But the vunerability, pain, and gentleness that Black people reveal are not present many times in the media or even in our homes. The luxury of intimacy with other people is so small in comparison to the thousands of images of us being strong and “animalistic” (by intimacy I mean without guards, barriers, being invested with other people without a facade to what you are or layers you create.)
Similar to the phrase ”carefree black girls and boys”, I wanted to give a safe space to vulnerablity of Blackness to be on display
Genteel, Romanctic, Poetic, Ethereal, intimate and vulnerable imagery of Black people.
