My response to the Eight hate I’m seeing—particularly calling him a coward.
For once I have to say “Hooray Steven Moffat” for getting it right in The Night of the Doctor. This is exactly who Eight has become—after the Edwardian Adventures, after Zagreus, and To the Death. This is the Doctor who watched Tamsin and Lucie and Alex die and told his granddaughter Susan that she was lucky he’d left her behind because he’s seen so much death he’d got used to it—“but not any more.” This is the Doctor who chopped off his long hair and chose battle garments after his clothes were destroyed. This Doctor is not afraid of a fight or a war, as evidenced by many of his stories since the movie. If you’ve only seen the movie, you don’t know Eight at all. You’ve only witnessed his baby steps.
This is the Doctor who would not be part of the Time War because both sides were wrong and the Time Lords themselves had unleashed hell into the Universe. There is no healing that madness. The only way to end it is horrific and unthinkable, and not to be done in the name of—or by—the Doctor. This Doctor—the Eighth Doctor—gave his life trying to save someone.
The coward’s way out would have been to look back on lives well lived and let himself die. Instead he chose to come back as a warrior, even knowing what horrors he would endure, and inflict, for the sake of saving the Universe. For that alone he may just be the bravest Doctor of them all.

What I’d like to see now is Eight becoming a companion. To Capaldi/Twelve. For a WHOLE SEASON. A season of bickering and outsmarting each other, out-DOCTORING each other, to see who’s the best. Twelve looking down on Eight but also slightly scared. Because HE DOESN’T REMEMBER THIS. So it’s bad news. Something’s gonna happen to Eight to make him forget, or they’ve entered an alternate reality. And the TARDIS gets tired of their constant bickering and kicks them out into random times and planets, and they’re too busy to notice that the TARDIS is slowly breaking down. She can’t handle the two of them at the same time, for so long. All the while Clara stands there and watches over them, like they’re children who need a mother’s eye (but at the same time she’s overwhelmed by it all too).
Yes, I’d like that.

laurahonest replied to your post: okay but did that irish song just come on randomly…
well when i watched it on my dvr the song didnt start until after he stopped yelling and the screen went to black and it isnt really irish it is more of a rockish song kind of thing i guess?
The song is a cover of “The Bear and The Maiden Fair” which is written in the books :) It’s also the song that Thoros and his men were singing as the rode through the woods with Arya in the episode.

Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, “If only I had teeth down there.”
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his pants zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called Rapex. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the Rapex removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, “A medieval device for a medieval deed.”
