The Twelfth Doctor

The grounds of Pompeii. c.2008. I remembered an episode about Pompeii in Doctor Who.

This is a post dedicated to Doctor Who.

I started watching Doctor Who about a year and half ago, maybe 2 years ago. I would watch while doing my work. The program would run in the background, but most of the time I would end up paying more attention to it than my work. I started the series from the ninth doctor. I am sorry to the 1st-8th doctors; I am not familiar with any of you. However, I have fallen in love with every doctor that I have seen since, doctors 9-12. Maybe it’s because I choose to blindly follow and accept changes, but I have never had a problem with any of the doctors. You see, many people were unhappy with the 9th Doctor. They say he didn’t fit the bill very well. I thought he did a great job. I just figured it was a personality that the Doctor would encompass or represent. Everyone loved the 10th and 11th doctors, as did I. Again, I just figured those were different personalities that the Doctor would represent. Doctor 12 came along, and I am not entirely sure that everyone bought into him. I absolutely love him, though. He is an older doctor, as opposed to doctors 9-11 who were on the younger side, and he is not as positive. In fact, he is a very cynical old man. I think it’s befitting. To me, this doctor represents the bitter side and the effects from the harsh experiences that the previous doctors went through. The other doctors were hopeful and held on to faith. This doctor seems to give up on all of that. I do see that with every episode he has an internal struggle between his distrust and his wanting to trust again. Also, he needs his companion to keep him grounded and compassionate. He has flaws, and I like him! He changes things up.

I’m not sure what other opinions of the last season was, but I really enjoyed it, as I always do. The episodes were darker, but hey, the doctor goes through A LOT. Let him mope around a bit.

The new season is coming up, and it looks promising. I’d love to see the twelfth doctor around for a long time!
