Q:Doctor ... What is it like, to see people evolve, through timeless eyes like yours? Do you ever regret moving in and out of our lives like a whisper? Would you change your existence, if ever you could?
Watching species evolve and people grow and change is… Stunning.
The beauty of the universe isn’t stars or nebulas or galaxies; it’s the species in it. So tiny when you look at the bigger picture, but when you ‘zoom in’, if you will, they’re magnificent. Absolutely fantastic.
Sometimes I regret touching people’s lives, yes. But people very rarely regret travelling with me. I suppose that makes it easier.
Would I change my existence if I could?
To travel the universe like I do is a privilege.
However, saving it time and time again with death lurking around every corner can be… Upsetting. It puts a lot of pressure on you.
Everyone’s counting on you and if you fail, the consequences are dire to say the least.
Sometimes I wish for a normal life.
Sometimes I hate the thought of ever having a normal life.
It varies. So I don’t really have a good answer for you.
Q:Doctor... I'm just thinking if you screw up when you try to help earth why won't you just use the tardus to try again? Like a reset button?
Crossing my own personal time-stream is bad. Very bad. The paradoxes are horrible!
Q:Hey Eleven! You really love your wife huh?
What man doesn’t love his wife? A very bad one.
The answer is yes.
Q:there is nothing wrong with John smith 11 it's just you look more like a Matt Smith
Well that’s just your personal opinion.
Q:Hey 11 you know your fake name should be Matt Smith rather than John Smith cuz you sorta look like a Matt Smith to me
What’s wrong with John Smith?
Q:I recently lost several family members who were very close to me within the span of a month. How do you deal with that, Doctor?
Losing people close to you is always hard, and I’m afraid there’s no way to get over it easily.
The best thing you can do is remember the people you lost, and keep them in your heart.
Remember what they did for you and what they meant to you, but also remember that they weren’t your whole world.
You still have your family left, and there are still people who love you. That’s all you need to keep going.
Hello! I’m the Doctor!
There are quite a few new faces now, so I thought I’d say hello again.
How this blog works is pretty damn simple.
You send in questions to this blog, the mun shouts at me and hands me his laptop, I answer the questions, give it back, and he hits the publish button.
I myself am on Tumblr very rarely, however the mun is here quite a lot.
He might have a problem. Don’t know.
I hope he doesn’t read this.
And yes, I am very aware of the show you’re all obsessing over.
I’m flattered, to say the least.
I, however, don’t watch it. It would be boring for me to watch my own life, and all I would be doing is point out all the flaws.
So all questions about that show will be answered by the mun.
Posts and reblogs by the mun start with “//” and are tagged with “ooc” and “mod: L”.
That should about cover things! Get back to scrolling, you lot. Or if there’s anything you’re curious about, send a message my way.
A friendly reminder to everyone who has seen the Doctor Who season finale:
Tag your spoilers!!
Tag them as ‘dw spoilers’ or ‘the name of the doctor’!
There are still people who haven’t seen the episode and do not wish to be spoiled!
A John Hurt-Doctor Theory
Okay so Clara is seemingly a massive analogy for the Doctor Who series.
* Victorian-Clara was born on November the 23rd, the day Doctor Who first aired, and died at the age of 26, the number of Classic Doctor Who seasons.
* Modern-Clara was born in 1989, the year Classic Who was cancelled. Her mother died on March the 5th, the day Doctor Who returned to screens.
* Clara is eventually revealed to have fallen through and has scattered herself across he Doctor’s timeline and has met all eleven Doctors. We see this in ‘The Name of the Doctor’ which is interspersed with scenes of Classic Who with Clara edited into the footage.
If Moffat has introduced a character that is analogous to the fiftieth anniversary of the series then it is not such a large leap to guess that John Hurt’s Doctor represents the cancellation of the series and what happened off-screen until Christopher Ecclestone took on the role in 2005.
Let me explain. The Eleventh Doctor refused to acknowledge John Hurt’s character as the Doctor but admitted that he is an incarnation of himself. My theory is that John Hurt’s character is analogous to the gap between the 1996 TV Movie starring Paul McGann and the 2005 revival.
The reason ‘Doctor Who’ was off our screens for that time is because shortly after the Eighth Doctor was born and tied up the Seventh Doctor’s loose ends, he stopped being the Doctor. He became a warrior, an ‘Oncoming Storm’, the killer of both Daleks and his own kind.
Perhaps it was his role in ending the Time War that was the act that broke his promise to be ‘The Doctor’, “The one who makes people better” or “A great healer”. Perhaps it was something far worse.
Basically my theory is that John Hurt is an older representation of Paul McGann’s character. The reason why there were no Doctor Who episodes between the movie and the 2005 series is because the protagonist was no longer the Doctor. The protagonist only became the Doctor once more when he abandoned his eighth incarnation and regenerated into his ninth.
I may be right. I may be wrong. All I know is that John Hurt’s Doctor is wearing the same jacket that Christopher Ecclestone wore when he first appeared as the Ninth Doctor.
