– To adapt Eleven’s words of River from a totally different context: “I shouldn’t like it when he does this. Is it bad that I do, a bit?”
Not at all! :D
– Again. Liking this. Probably really shouldn’t be.
"Ah. Now, stay where you are. Because look at me, I'm confident. You want to watch that, me, when I'm confident." (Eleven in Day of the Moon in the final confrontation with the Silence)
– Game, set, and expletive deleted match. (From a bit later on: Oh, he was presumably talking about Toclafane being future humans. I thought he was talking about these humans having no humanity. Not mutually exclusive.)
Yes, he's being very literal. But... No wait. You'll see.
– Of course it is. :)
Trying to tackle ALL the problems.
– Hypothesis A: The poor boy’s in love, and can’t help himself.
... Nope, not gonna happen. Even if he was head-over-heels, he wouldn't do that.
Hypothesis B: This is actually the course of action that will get the humans to reveal more of their plans, thereby enabling the Seeker, Seven- or Master-like, to collapse them into their own traps. In spite of an apparent incongruity, these are, again, not mutually exclusive.
Aye, always has a back-up plan. The Doctor taught him that. (See his first regeneration.)
– Roda isn’t the only one.
He is a nasty piece of work...
. Though, come to think of it, the intolerable idiocy of men being, well, men, has a much wider scope than that.
– Oh. Oh dear. I mean, obviously Caan and Roda were going to meet and it was going to be disastrous at some point, but… oh dear. Thank goodness he apologized first.
Yeah, there is that. Still. He's very annoyed that the humans forced his hand to such a degree.
