I'd like to think he's not QUITE that calculating.
– Ah, sorry, it was late when I wrote that and I wasn‘t coherent. I‘m not saying he did it
of these calculations. I think he did it because he was her friend and he loved her and he couldn‘t do anything else.
I think that while doing it / after he did it he was probably
realizing the effect it would have on her, much like Roda is later trying to put all the possible data together to explain a situation that doesn’t make sense to her and wondering if the Master/Doctor relationship is like the Seeker/Roda one. Just because he’s the Seeker and he’s making those sorts of calculations
all the time
Which, you’re right, doesn’t stop it being reckless in the moment that he is actually doing it and can’t help himself because he couldn’t possibly do anything else. As you were!
