|01:37 am - More Doctor Who Bechdel Test|
Right! Isolated some parts of conversations that didn't pass to see if the isolated bits do pass. Since, after all, all that's required to pass are three lines between women that aren't about a man. And yet, quite a few episodes have failed...
-----polls now closed-----
The Shakespeare Code
DOOMFINGER: But it must be tomorrow!
BLOODTIDE: Love's Labour’s Won must be performed.
(Lilith changes the hair in the doll.)
LILITH: Fear not. Chant with me. Water damps the fiercest flame.
Two lines about the play, then: the beginning of a spell. To kill a dude. (admittedly, an unimportant-to-the-story dude, but still.) Does the action of Lilith changing the hair in the doll signify that the conversation/the spell is about a man now? Well, this is the deciding factor for the whole episode, so...
And now! one from the Moffat Era:
ALAYA: Why would I tell you?
AMBROSE: Because if you don't, I'm going to have to use this on you.
(Ambrose has kept a taser from her collection of weapons.)
ALAYA: Now you reveal yourselves.
The thing Alaya won't tell is anything about a cure for Ambrose's father. But although Ambrose is motivated in this scene by saving the male members of her family, this three lines also reveal something vital about her: that she's willing to torture to get what she needs. So! Does it pass or not? What do you think?

Welcome to part of my project to work out how many times Doctor Who passes the Bechdel Test! This bit's on Livejournal so I can post polls on it.
Basically, I need your help discerning whether the following conversations pass the Bechdel Test or not. Some of these I thought and thought about, and then just figured, put it to a vote.
-----Polls are now closed! If you vote now, it won't be counted!------

May the fourth be with you, fellow Star Wars fans!
Also, I should probably get around to updating this icon at some point.

Fred Phelps has died. I'll take a 'meh' with a side order of 'good'.

These little Minion earrings are mine (I loved them so much I had to keep them) but if I made more, would anyone buy them?

I haven't been on here for a while and that's because I've been ill. My energy levels still aren't back up to normal and it's very annoying. :( Plus, let's face it, everyone has switched to tumblr now.
But if you wanted to know my thoughts on Time Of The Doctor, skalja nailed them pretty much exactly.
