Julie Gardner: We’re on St. Mary’s Street in central Cardiff. And it’s a department store that was established in the very first episode of the series, series one - Rose’s department store, Henrick’s.
David Tennant: Rose used to work there.

What did Jay-Z call his girlfriend before they got married
you waited your whole life for this didn’t you
YOU KNOW WHATS FUCKING STUPID
WHEN YOUR FAMILY MAKES YOU GO SOMEWHERE WITH THEM AND YOU TELL THEM YOU DONT WANT TO

OH WELL MY FUCKING APOLOGIES
#his hearts still stutter in his chest when he hears those two words#even though it’s been centuries since he heard them last#he’s better at hiding it though #he sees his younger self freeze#go pale and shocked at the sound of the words that have always led back to Rose#and then the memory slots back into place#they’ve been coming back in bits and pieces this whole time#snatches of memory#different vantage points on conversations he’s in the middle of#different perspectives on decisions he’s already made - is making - will make#but it’s not till just now that she’s figured into the picture #it’s not her #not really#but it’s her face and her voice and he’s been starved for both for so long#and when he looks over to the box where he knows she’s sitting #he can see her#just for a moment #not quite memory and not quite reality#smiling at him from across the room (via lyricalprose)
