EVEN THOUGH THE SHOW HAS BEEN ON THE AIR SINCE 1963 YOU CAN STILL EASILY PLACE THE DOCTOR’S RESURGENCE INTO THIS GREATER CONTEXT OF SUPERHERO-DOM. WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIM IN A CERTAIN LENS THE DOCTOR IS NOT ONLY A GREAT FIXTURE OF SCI-FI, BUT FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, A SUPERHERO. HE CAN LIVE AGES BEYOND YOUR (PUNY) HUMAN LIVES. HE CAN TRAVEL THROUGHOUT ALL OF SPACE AND TIME, SAVE PLANETS AND INVIGORATE THE COSMOS. BUT MORE THAN ANY OF HIS ABILITIES WHAT MOST DEFINES THE TIME-LORD HIMSELF IS HIS STAGGERING INTELLECT, ZANY SENSE OF HUMOR, HUMANELY DEMOCRATIC VIEWPOINT, AND SENSE OF GENUINE OPTIMISM. HULK ARGUES THAT THESE ARE THE FOUR QUALITIES ARE ABSOLUTELY THE MOST LACKING ATTRIBUTES IN THE MODERN AGE OF HEROES.
Hello, I'm David McGahan:"So Rory needs to grow up and stop being a mopey adolescent boy. "
Holy Zarquon's Singing Fish:"Supposedly they were deliberately aiming older for Eleven but then Matt Smith got somebody to let him audition and blew everybody away."
The Doctor: See that snake. The mark of The Corsair. Fantastic bloke. He had that snake as a tattoo in every regeneration. Didn't feel like himself unless he had that tattoo. Or herself a couple of times. Oo hoo! She was a bad girl!
XQUZYPHYR:"Which is why they need an episode where he meets the Tom Baker version of himself but because Tom Baker's too old they get Craig Ferguson to do it."
MrBobaFett:"I'm highly suspicious of any producer post-JNT."
MrBobaFett:"If you want to reject JNT then you're missing out on about a 1/3 off the original series. Including all of Peter Davidson, which would be a huge shame."
Rock Steady:"The Cumberbatch seems almost too obvious, no?"
The Whelk:"Did not like what they did to River cause now she's All The Things and I liked her better before damnit."
Mezentian:"Pond Life P1 is available!"
painquale:" I hope they stop making the Doctor such an infantile idiot."
Artw:"Wasn't that a fantastic episode?"
EmpressCallipygos:"You be nice to my Doctor, pal."
