After watching The Name of the Doctor, I have all of these feels, and interpretations. There are some spoilers ahead,...
spent 60 pounds today to try and make me feel better.
ahahahahahaha. what the fuck am i doing.
I was just listening to The National’s new album on the bus on the way home from uni and I looked down and the guy beside me was listening to it...
Hater: Let me tell you why I hate Moffat..
Me: I’d rather you didn’t.
Hater: Excuse me??
Me: I’m not interested. I enjoy Moffat’s work and...
OH MY GOD GUYS I JUST HAD A THOUGHT.
At the end of TNoTD John Hurt’s character says “What I did, I did without choice. In the name of peace and sanity.” And the Doctor says “But not in the name of the Doctor.”
Not in THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR.
What if “The Name Of The Doctor” isn’t really about his literal name but about his legacy and his choices that he made during his lifetime?
Ding ding. Someone gets it.
And I’ve gotten to the point of just ignoring and blocking blatant Moffat Haters who have no justification whatsoever. Makes for a better online experience. lol
I’m rather mad at this whole John Hurt situation…
I’m sorry, but Christopher Eccleston will always be my Ninth Doctor.
No one is changing the order of anything. If you’re a fan of the show you know the Time War happened. And during it all The Doctor, his name that he chose which means “healer” had to essentially commit mass genocide. That is why that incarnation “broke the promise” and during it all he did not consider himself The Doctor for what he had to do.
Just as when he said when deciding on what to do with the starwhale
“I’ll have to change my name because after this I won’t be The Doctor”
12 regenerations. But 11 Doctors.
