eye candy: Arthur Darvill

Continuing the theme of the everyman-who-is-more-than-he-seems, Arthur Darvill as Rory. This is what you’re missing if you’re not watching the current series of Doctor Who. (On hiatus until September.)

Things that are awesome about Rory:

One more to grow on.
  • He’s a nurse.
  • He lets Amy be exactly who she is.
  • He cried the first time he held his daughter.
  • He guarded Amy while she was locked in a box for 2000 years. (It’s science fiction. Just go with it.)
  • He and Amy have a remarkably active, varied and healthy sex life for a married couple on a family show.
  • A lot of romantic couples will say “I’ll do anything for you.” With Rory, you can actually believe it.
  • When Amy thinks of delight, she thinks of him.

I don’t know much about Arthur Darvill himself,  but the fact that he embodies Rory so perfectly is enough to start with.

  1. Rory! Yes! Everything you said! He is an awesome character. And he's nearly over The Doctor referring to him as Rory Pond. 😉 madder_badder

  2. @Sarah, this series had made me love River and adore Rory. So much fun.@Madder, I almost put "Rory Pond" in the commentary, but since the credits don't give him a last name either I'm just going to let him stand as Rory too.
