- I haven't watched Dr. Who for years but I could still glean some enjoyment and a bit of 'closure' out of this. Also nice to think that the TARDIS is something more than a bit of machinery and has built a bond with its 'companion'. Maybe. On the other hand, I deplore the sloppy pseudo-logic and hand-waving 'just because' / magic of the last few years (as it's seemed to me), so elevating the TARDIS from what I've always seen it to be - a super-duper bit of science - to similar fuzziness offends me a little. Hmmm.
Plus I was pleased that you featured my favourite Doctor, Three Jon Pertwee. His forced incarceration on Earth and estrangement from the time lords universe was a note of angst in the series that I fondly remember.
Author's responsePertwee is also 'my doctor' -- I don't dislike any of them, but he's still my favorite; I was trying to figure out how to get him to interact with #10, 11, or 12, and this was the result. #7 is also a favorite, and he worked his way in.
As for the TARDIS' view of the Doctor, see series 6 episode 4, 'The Doctor's Wife' (Matt Smith era), which would explain why I wrote this as I did
As always, thanks for taking the time to review!
- A fascinating story that reminds us of the burdens that the modern Doctor is shown as carrying but that the earlier Doctors most assuredly did not have. Has he fallen over the years or have the millennia taught him wisdom and equanimity in the face of what must be done for the sake of the greater number?
FWIW, Five and Seven were my two favourite Doctors of the classic incarnation of the show.
