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.
Pertwee 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!
