'Watch enough Who and inevitably your favorite character become the Doctor and your favorite Doctor becomes the Doctor.'

Do you think if we shake S11 really hard we'll get more of the Doctor? Like, we're in the middle of a 55-year old character arc here. Bit keen to get back.

Ooo, that was rather good. Though it's all serious music in the beginning until finally the opening bars of We Will Rock You broke out and I lol'd.

Do not have time to watch the vid till later but YES my favourite Doctor IS The Doctor!! That is what I ALWAYS tell people when they inevitably ask me who *my* Doctor is!! (a question I hate) I always get told that's a cop-out answer, but now I feel vindicated by this unknown person.

I have not yet read The Day of the Doctor - though I do have a signed copy!! I went to a signing at Forbidden Planet and queued in the cold for a really long time, and then by the time I got to meet Moffat and RTD I was too verklempt to say anything much /o\ They were both completely lovely though. And I'm really looking forward to reading it - I'm so glad you like it, that gives me a lot of hope! Will push it up the endless To Read list.

And I know that most people do have 'their' Doctor, but I just...don't. Nine was my first Doctor, and I LOVED him and was OUTRAGED and distraught when I learned he was only doing one season. He kind of set the tone of The Doctor for me. But then there was Ten, who was beautiful and passionate and who I fell for within about three minutes, and was hopelessly, completely in love with (and sliiiiightly still am, oh god why) and was the perfect Doctor for 16-19 year-old me. Then there was Eleventy! Wonderful, kind, lovely, flaily Eleventy, who taught me to read the show in a whole new way, and whose era got me into the whole meta thing, and who completely reset the tone of the Doctor for me. And then there was Twelve, who I loved hopelessly, in spite of (or sometimes because of) all his anger, and how hard he had to work for the things that came so effortlessly to his predecessors, and I mean he was Peter Capaldi so I was always going to love him. And now there is Thirteen. And for all this season's issues, I love her. And there is just no way I can ever choose between them, which is why I always say my Doctor is The Doctor. I guess to be more accurate my Doctor is the New Who Doctor, but that's only because I haven't seen enough of all of the others to claim them as mine.

It's something I heard someone say waaaaaaaaay back in the day during season five when I was just getting into Doctor Who and obviously had no idea what they were talking about. But it struck me as good enough wisdom that I've always remembered it, and now I finally feel like I understand what this long-lost person meant!

Heh, they did the "Never Been Better" one I recced a little while ago, and which you liked! :-D

Have now finished Fenric and Survival and am too full of Seven-y meta-y emotions to really function...

<3 I'm glad! I mean, I hope you manage to function, but this is only right and proper...

The icon is an old one, by an lj user called derogative, and I stole it, so I see no reason why you shouldn't! ;-)
