"I could retire and be curator of this place."
"You know, I really think you might."
Oh, this moment.
This beautiful moment!
Words fail me.
Thank you, Moffat!
The moment I heard that baritone voice say, “You know, I really think you MIGHT,” I actually felt my eyes misting over and a lump welling up in my throat before I even consciously thought, “No, it COULDN’T be him …”
When you move around a lot, across the country and around the world, the concept of “home” becomes an abstract thing, and for me, it’s long since become about a time, my own childhood in the 1980s, rather than a place.
And as much as I’ve enjoyed NuWho, I didn’t fully realize until the 50th anniversary how much I missed a number of the Classic Who tropes that I grew up with, but that’s okay, because now I know where this show is going … where it’s always been going:

"So, yes, for the fucking love of God, movies matter. TV shows matter. Novels matter. They shape the lens through which you see the world. The very fact that you don’t think they matter, that even right now you’re still resisting the idea, is what makes all of this so dangerous to you — you watch movies so you can turn off your brain and let your guard down.

No matter how you slice it, Fantomah is an incredibly important part of comics history, and especially important as a milestone for female characters in the medium.
