I don’t understand how people are still claiming that the Doctor’s relationship with River is one-sided. I think he made it pretty clear in The Angels Take Manhattan that he cares for her and likes her a lot in the very least, if he doesn’t love her, which I think he does.
I can understand people not liking Moffat’s writing because of his depiction of minorities and things, but when you think about it, he’s one of the best writers of our time. Let’s be thankful for his brilliant connections between circumstances. If it weren’t for him, the show would probably suck nowadays. Let’s be honest…
I recently came to Doctor Who in a desperate attempt to make friends in a new school, and I love ALL of it! I love nine and his sassiness, along with Captain Jack and his harkness-sexuality. Then there’s ten, my favorite, and I ADORE every single one of his episodes and every companion, be it Rose, Martha, or Donna (though RosexDoctor is my OTP). And seeing Matt Smith in the Christmas special makes me excited for what’s to come!
I actually thought that Amy was a refreshing character. As much as I’ve liked the Doctor’s other companions, all of them went from being ordinary to extraordinary. It was nice to see Amy go from being different to being able to find herself.
I just wanna say that I love Donna. I love her humor and how she has genuine passion and love for others, even for those she had known for a short while, like the Ood. She wasn’t afraid to talk back to the Doctor and be herself, not worried about what she would say or do in front of him. I will never get over her forgetting everything she did with him and the Universe.
I don’t understand why some people in the fandom have started hating on Clara when she kissed the doctor, because of his relationship with River Song. I adore her, but the doctor has loved before her and will do after her.
I wish the Moffat era had a spin-off or two. I loved when in series 1-4, Torchwood and SJA tied into it several times and finally all came together for a big finale in The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End. It’s something I’d like to see more of in Doctor Who.
I really want Jack to meet the new Doctor. Not because of the flirting thing with Jack and River or Clara, I really don’t care about that. I just want to find out how he died. And I want Jack to meet Eleven. I feel like they’d have sort of a brother relationship, you know, Jack would be the teasing but loving big brother. I can’t get it out of my head that, even though he had this own spin off series, he didn’t get a real finish because we don’t know how he died yet.
I only started watching DW two months ago, and now that I’m in series 6, I’m having a hard time continuing since I know what is going to happen to Amy and Rory (because Tumblr). I want to keep watching, but I know that my heart is going to break ten million times when I finally reach ‘The Angels Take Manhattan.’
My depression is lessened every time I watch Doctor Who or even just when I listen to Chameleon Circuit. I’m not ashamed when I cry and there’s plenty of times to laugh, and the show just has some charm that makes me smile for the first time in weeks.
