Arrogant? Arrogant? Does Vastra really seem arrogant to any of you?
Is she arrogant when she accepts without hesitation to endanger her own life and that of her partner to save Amy Pond’s child? Does she seem arrogant when she wants the best for the man who saved her life and readily questions Clara in snowmen? Does she seem arrogant when upon her wife’s death she is so distraught she seems about ready to pull out her own heart and threatens Strax been rendered blind by pain? Does she seem arrogant when she gets Jenny back and does everything in her power to save her from the great intelligence or when she deprives herself of oxygen to save her life? Is that an arrogant character? Maybe a little unfeeling, but arrogant!

Actually, I see her as being arrogant to everyone except to Jenny and her friends/allies. And if we consider that she’s the basis of Sherlock Holmes, we can see that Holmes pretty much thought the police were idiots (at least in the earlier stories)…and pretty much everyone else too lol. Her arrogance toward the police is partially justified because the inspector we’ve seen is a bit of a bumbling idiot.

Also, let’s face it: she’s a proud warrior from a highly advanced society, much more so than Victorian society. I would frankly be surprised if there wasn’t any arrogance toward the primitives and how the other Silurians act to humans pretty much demonstrated this too. Malokeh vivisected a live human for science. Restac/Alaya wanted to exterminate all the primitives. Vastra herself eats humans regularly. Old!Silurians experimented on humans to make them taste better.

Just because she treats Jenny and friends/allies like equals doesn’t necessarily hold true for the rest of humanity.

Madame Vastra’s quote:

Mammals, they all look alike.

"I was not initially keen on the society of apes…"

Your grasp of biology troubles me.

"I love monkeys, they’re so funny."

"No dear, people are apes. Men are monkeys."

Sherlock Holmes Quote:

"I would rather have the help of Toby (a dog) than the entire detective force of London!”

Inktober, jour 13: Détective! Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint et Strax (Doctor Who), parce que je ne vois pas plus cool qu’un couple lesbien inter-espèces flanqué d’un extraterrestre demeuré qui jouent les détectives dans un Londres victorien.
Inktober, day 13: Detective! Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax from Doctor Who. Is there something more cool than a lesbian interspecies couple accompanied by a moron alien playing detectives in a victorian London?
