I haven’t even seen all the seasons yet and I totally get what all the hype is about. well, mostly it’s this:
a little bit of this
and a whole lot of this:
Okay, that’s being unfair to the show… true David is cute, and sexy and ridiculously adorable! (did you see the pic of him with the cat?! OMG! I just can’t!) but the show is amazing… I’ve loved every character, every villain, every hero, every sidekick, every companion and every doctor.
Let me explain the show a little bit if you’ve never seen it. so, in a nutshell, it’s about this alien, he’s called a time lord, the last of his kind, from the planet Gallifrey. He has a space ship, Time And Relative Dimension In Space or a TARDIS for short. This spaceship is shaped like a phone box from the 60’s in order to look inconspicuous. it’s bigger on the inside and he travels the world in it. a madman and his blue box. he chooses companions to travel with him and he takes them on wild adventures into the past, into the future, into alternate dimensions… et al. he sets things right across the timeline, he can’t always save everyone, because such is life, but he does his best.
He’s like fire and ice and rage. He’s like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And… he’s wonderful.
The adventures are larger than life and the doctor always comes through in the end. The show gives me hope, I like to think there’s someone like him out there, being the best he can be and saving the world. As a time lord he doesn’t die but can regenerate, so far he’s on his 12th or 14th regeneration, depending on how you count them; and each one of them has been awesome. I might be partial to DT, because come on! look at the pic of him with the kitten!! but I wouldn’t change anything about the show or the premise. Not the Sucky special effects, not the heart breaking deaths, not the Englishness of it all, nothing!
He’s incredibly lonely, haunted by the demons of his past and the allusiveness of his future. For every person he saves he leaves devastation in his wake. He breaks hearts and completely overhauls people’s lives and they wouldn’t want it any other way!
“You and I both know, don’t we Rose? The Doctor is worth the monsters… One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel.”
When things are not working out in my life, even though I know it’s not possible, I kind of wish the doctor would come along and save me, and take me on a wild adventure. He would make the worst boyfriend, but so what?! you have to take the bad with the good… and there is so much good!
