I bought a life size cutout of the 10th Doctor. I get a bunch of complaining about it, and especially a lot of teasing from it. But you know what? I had a gift card, so it was only $2. One of the best two dollars I have ever spent in my entire life. :D I don’t care what anyone says.
I know its stupid, but I really wanna see a deleted scene of in between “The End of Time ” part 1 and 2, because I wanna see how the Master got the Doctor into that chair. XD But seriously. Its been bugging me.
The Doctor and Martha is one of my absolute favorite pairings of any two characters, any show, EVER! I love finding people in the fandom who see what potential their relationship had to be so much more than what the show did with it. They have amazing chemistry and nothing thrills me quite like reading a well-written story that makes me go “Yes! THIS is how things should have been!” They’re playful, passionate, heart-breaking, sweet and just brilliant together!
Series 1 and 5 are the high points of Doctor Who for me. I think the greatest thing in the world is when the show gets a new Doctor and a new writer at the same time; everything is new and exiting and you never know what’s going to happen. That’s why I hope when 11 regenerates, we get a new head writer. Not because I dislike Moffat in any way, but because I think it would be brilliant if 12’s entrance into the show could be the start of a completely new era.
I love the Tenth Doctor more than I’ve loved a fictional character in a long time, but I think its mostly because he had three of the best companions. Rose was at her best with him, and Martha and Donna are two of the greatest female role models ever written.
I wish the Doctor’s ‘Time Lord Victorious’ moment had lasted an entire episode, rather than five minutes. Him having to deal with long lasting repercussions from running around fixing things to his liking would have been fascinating.
David Tennant’s Doctor had a year of movie-length specials to show off how great he is as The Doctor, and a year to build up angst and drama about the fact that Ten would die. And at the end of all of it, his last words were “I don’t want to go”. I think this put Matt Smith’s run as the doctor in an impossibly difficult position to establish himself positively, because after the year of fawning over Ten, he was thrown in as “the guy who took his place”. I wish people would treat him more fairly.
I think I dislike Rose because I feel like Rose/Doctor gets more attention than any other ship and it overshadows the rest of the tenth doctor’s run. It feels like the whole show is Doctor/Rose sometimes.
Tennant was my first Doctor, Eleven was my Doctor, but the Fourth Doctor, whom I usually cite as my Doctor, was the one who got me into Classic Who. My friends and some others in the Classic Who fandom have generally been accepting of this but sometimes I’m afraid of what NuWhovians would think of me.
