Doctor Who Season 8 Premiere on Tumblr | Above gifset source (x)
Doctor Who has one of the biggest and most highly engaged fandoms on Tumblr, and this weekend they were out in full force again for the 8th season premiere of the show since its reboot; this season featuring a new Doctor, redecorated TARDIS, and the redone show opening seen above, currently the most popular Doctor Who related post on Tumblr.
From Friday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 24th, 59.5k posts were made about Doctor Who by a community of 796.4k Tumblr users, earning 3.6 million notes. That’s an average of 61 notes per post, putting a single weekend of Doctor Who on par with a month’s worth of posts from the science community.
Gifsets are popular in Tumblr fandom for their ability to replay small moments that lend greater significance to characters and moments in a series that are easy to miss during a show’s initial run. The official Doctor Who Tumblr understands this about their audience and uses a lot of gifsets in their posts.
Very cleverly done.
Whether by the sword or the slow decay of time…Aragorn will die and there will be no comfort for you….no comfort to ease the pain of his passing…he will come to death - an image of splendor of the kings of men in glory undimmed before the breaking of the world.

And thus it was. A fourth age of middle-earth began. And the fellowship of the ring… though eternally bound by friendship and love… was ended. Thirteen months to the day since Gandalf sent us on our long journey… we found ourselves looking upon a familiar sight. We were home. How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on… when in your heart you begin to understand… there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend… some hurts that go too deep… that have taken hold. Bilbo once told me his part in this tale would end… that each of us must come and go in the telling. Bilbo’s story was now over. There would be no more journeys for him… save one. My dear Sam. You cannot always be torn in two. You will have to be one and whole for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be and to do. Your part in the story will go on.
