I lead a Tom Hiddleston appreciation life.

“There’s only so much hate somebody can stand before they have to cave in for fear of their own wellbeing.
I hope that those people attacking him realise what harm they’ve actually been doing and feel ashamed.
Just because somebody works in the spotlight doesn’t mean you’re allowed to hold them to a higher standard than every other person and tear them apart for anything you can find the slightest fault with.
I don’t care what anyone’s personal opinion of Steven Moffat and his work is- there’s no excuse for the kinds of hate he is battered with every day. As rational tumblrites we see hate sent to other tumblr users and immediately go to their defence- even if we don’t like a particular blog most of us understand that shouting abuse and death threats and calls for suicide are completely and utterly wrong. Why is it so different for somebody that just so happens to work in the tv industry? A fan just like us who has their ideas and runs with them and tries to create something fun and interesting? Even for those who dislike his work for whatever reason should be able to see that whilst grumbling to themselves and others or forming actual critiques is fine- outright abusing someone just because they didn’t happen to produce something you think is perfect, or even just to your taste, is horrid.
I’m not as thick skinned as Moffat is- if I were him I would have left twitter ages ago. I hope that he can find comfort in his friends and family and knows that beyond the haters there are still people that value his work and know that he’s as human as the rest of us. And I hope that this might be able to send a message to those in the fandom that think that internet hate, and in particular purposefully directing hate towards somebody else, is a justifiable action, come to realise that that is completely 100% NOT WHAT THIS FANDOM IS ABOUT.
Grow the fuck up guys- and learn the difference between disliking or having an issue with something, and outright attacking those whose actions you’ve taken issue to. “
lets see how many times we can get the title of our show into the script of our show
I think that Sherlock might win for that.
So I had a dream that I was auditioning for Sherlock and when they gave me the lines I was supposed to read I totally blanked and all I could think about was the Doctor Who theme song so I just started singing “WEEE OOOO” and everyone stared at me until Steven Moffat just slowly clapped.
