R is for Run Ron!

A to Z Challenge - R

R is for "Run!"
The Doctor's first line of the New Who, and his most repeated line in any regeneration.  I think that's why David's Doctor had a long flowing coat - it looked good when he was running.  In the episode The Doctor's Daughter, Donna Noble explains what the Doctor does: 

"He saves worlds, rescues civilizations, defeats terrible creatures and runs a lot. Seriously, there's an outrageous amount of running involved."

Jenny, the Doctor's daughter in the episode of the same name, is played by Georgia Moffet who has quite a significant personal connection to the world of Doctor Who: she is the daughter of Peter Davison (the 5th Doctor) and is now married to David Tennant (the 10th Doctor, who played her father in the episode).  So the Doctor's daughter played the Doctor's daughter in the episode The Doctor's Daughter, then married the Doctor, and is now the mother of the Doctor's daughter and the Doctor's granddaughter.  And you thought River Song was confusing!
I had to stitch "S" before I could stitch R because I was
having counting issues!
R is for Ron Weasley
Harry's best friend.  Clutz and comedy relief.  Terror and tantrum-thrower. Friend and fierce fighter.  Ron was all things to Harry - best friend, confidant, and even enemy for a chapter or two.  Poor old Ron was often the bridesmaid, falling in Harry's shadow, but he always came through for Harry in the end.  I loved Rupert Grint in these films - he was the perfect Ron.  The comedic facial expressions from the second film were priceless. His snarly, teenage, tantrum throwing in films 4 and 7 were spot on.  His interactions with Lavender Brown were fantastic.  I've seen Rupert on stage too (yes, I've seen several of the actors on stage!) and to be honest, not that impressed.  Nothing against Rupert, but I'm not sure dramas are his thing - he needs to stick to comedy.

Have you seen any Potter actors in anything else?  Any favourites?

Happy Stitching!


  1. Such lovely work! I wish I'd found your blog sooner in the challenge, but better late than never :)

  2. Haha, I didn't know that about the Doctor's Daughter. Fun :D Sometimes it feels like the entire franchise is one big family...

    1. :D She's got the most amazing connection to the series.

  3. Poor Ron, always feeling second best. I'm so glad he got the girl in the end.

    Good luck with the A to Z Challenge!

    1. Me too! He and Hermione were great together. I'm glad JK Rowling didn't pair her up with Harry - just never saw it myself although I know that's the ending a lot of fans wanted.

  4. Love them both! And yep, Run is definitely a recognizable quote, no matter the Doctor!

  5. And David looks good running too!
