I watched Time Of The Doctor again today, got me feeling pretty nostalgic. Doctor Who thread, get in here
Man, remember when Dr. Who was a fun, light hearted adventure through time and space?
Before it was turned into a bizarre quasi-drama where time and space kind of took a back seat to it all?
so i guess this is where we do our ' top 3 ' doctors thing?
Tom Baker - (doctor i grew up with)
Paul McGann - would probably be number one if he had more air time, and his audio episodes are fantastic
3rd... tie between Eccleston and Tennant
He used to be intrigued but confused about us ultimately. Then there was a time where he was annoyed by us, having been virtually made captive... But then something happened and now he can't stop drooling over how amazing we are.
Even though he's been through multiple instances in human history that have shown how horrifically vile we can get.
Times change, and so must I… we all change. When you think about it, we are all different people, all through our lives and that’s okay, that’s good! You've gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this, not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the doctor was me.” - Matt Smith is fucking great at monologues
I genuinely thought I'd hate Smith as the Doctor... I've been made bitter by all the changes to not only the Doctor, but the Doctor's "universe" that I just assumed that he'd be another negative mark.
But instead he was probably among the more likable ones. Stories and companions aside, Matt Smith wasn't a terrible Doctor.
Im the same. First episode I saw him in I was like shit this guys gonna ruin the show. But he grew on me and become one of my favorites. He's so child like and immature but when he speaks seriously, he hits home.
Matt Smith has some of the best and beefiest speeches that i have ever heard. It was one of his best qualities about him. The one in the pandorica opens and the one in the rings of akhaten both gave me the chills and the feels.
My current wall paper. The feels in that speech.
mfw both women/weaboo men
gtf back to tumbler
That he did. The way he spoke, turned his coat and spun his hands. In Time Of The Doctor before he goes to war he flips his jacket collar up and I thought that subtle touch was pretty cool.
I started watching post 2005-DW. My first doctor was the 11th, after that I watched the 9th. Both were great, but I somehow don't enjoy the 10th doctor. He just seems way too young for the role. Don't get me wrong, Matt Smith is young too. But he appeared much more mature in his final episodes imo. I do like Tennant's dark side though.
tfw when doctor who isn't matt smith anymore
He will be missed. Look for the mini-episodes on Youtube, they're pretty cool and they actually tell a story. One of the mini-episodes involves 11 taking River Song on one last date right before she dies. Them feels .
Yeah he really seems like the most favorite. But I don't get the hate for matt smith in that case. He's young and quite similiar to tennant.On the other hand, I do believe that smith got quite some fans now thanks to the "X of the doctor"-episodes.
I knew something was up when someone said "the curator is looking for you" because at the start it was revealed the Doctor was the curator. I was expecing it to be Capaldi. When he started speaking from off screen I thought "wow I never realised how much Capaldi sounds like Tom Baker."
When the camera angle changed and it was fucking Tom Baker I pretty much came in my pants.
Yeah I feel near the end of his time he was much more liked. Like I feel if you say Tennant is your favorite Doctor it's acceptable but if you say Smith is, you're a pleb. Eccelston was cool too, I just wished had more time. He was cheesy, but cheesy in a way I liked. "Rose Tyler, I think you need a doctor" didyoujustwut
Some episodes I felt that Eccleston was just doing his job rather than actually immersing himself in the role.
My favourite from that season is Dalek. The scene where he meets it while it's still chained up was amazing. I heard he was suffering from the flu when they shot that scene, but he was able to power through and deliver a brilliant performance.
Jesus, haven't seen that episode since the 1970s. IIRC, he had just assembled the full Key to Time, a season-long process, and it would basically give you godlike wishing powers, and he was fucking with Romana, saying something like, "Do you love me? I could make you love me," and grabs it and rolls his eyes back in his head like a megalomaniac.
Im gonna get a little edgy/feely here now. But Doctor Who helped me with a break-up of a long time girlfriend at one point. Sarah Jane once said something along the lines of "Everything ends, whether it's a world or a relationship, everything has it's time and everything ends". And while I could have yelled at this girl and screamed, I hugged her and walked away never seeing her again, I feel good to this day how I handled that situation.
That episode was disappointing to me to be honest but, oh God, when he took off the bowtie...someone hold me, please...
I agree. The episode wasn't as spectacular as I thought it would be . But his regeneration speech was fucking perfect . When he hallucinated and saw Amy Pond one last time, sweet neptune
Tennant had okay monologues. I feel like he didn't need to speak much to get his point across though. "I don't want to go" hit every Doctor Who fan in the chest with a battleship of emotions.
I don't know, I liked his speech at the end. All in all it was pretty much "Don't be afraid to change, just remember who you were before". And Matts doctor was afraid of change, so I thought they were some nice parting words. Dropping the bow tie too, damn.
