it’s that lots of people seem to do character and story analysis about Doctor Who and tend to forget one really massive thing: the Doctor is a fucking Time Lord. He has power and knowledge unlike anything inside the realm of human experience or even capacity.
The Doctor is not Some Guy telling people what to do and even if he calls you a friend, that is not what you are, not in the way that a healthy human friendship might operate. You are a companion and it’s different.
When someone knows better, knows more that you are ever physically capable of knowing and has your best interest at heart; man, woman or talking duck you do what they fucking say. The Doctor and the TARDIS in your life changes you, forever and even if you chose to leave your life will always be in reference to that (BFA: The Gathering for further reading on that) if that is ripped away from you unwillingly it would be be a horrible loss. I am not in the slightest regard a fan of Rose but I felt for her when she was stuck on earth because she got it right there, your life is not the same after you have lived like that, the tragedy was not that she lost A Man but that she lost a spot on the TARDIS, a way of life.
So yeah, making the Doctor out to be some skezzy guy who tells people what to do. I’m not fond of it.
Five is amazing, he is my favourite Doctor. I wish I didn't have an assignment due tomorrow so I could watch some with you. Let's just say Five is a little more sporting than some of the other Doctors are :P
I’ve just met him but I really like his personality and just the general way he talks and his mannerisms. He’s great :D
