Amongst all the absolutely ridiculous discussion of this episode going around, I would just like to point one thing out here.
The problems of your future are my privilege”
He doesn’t say “my business”, or “my problems”, he says his “privilege”.
Can I just say how great that is, considering how a lot of a *cough* certain person’s writing tends to locate women as possessions of men to be toyed with, and how a lot of the time in television a man would assert that a woman’s life is his to control?
But no, John Watson doesn’t do that. He says this is his privilege, because he loves Mary and he wants her in his life, for better or for worse, and he is hoping she will continue to be in his life of her own volition.
I just really like that line I’m sorry it just means a lot to see something like that, even so small.
Me, Arthur and Matt are so in sync with each other now. We really feel like a team. Things would be boring without them. - Karen Gillan
For the first nineteen years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all. Not ever.
