MurphyMurphy: My Doctor,
one more time

He's like fire and ice and rage.

He's like the night

...and the storm in the heart of the sun.

He's ancient and forever.

He burns at the centre of time

and can see the turn of the universe.


/Haters gonna hate
//No one captured the conflict and duality of an eternal, terrible and benevolent god quite like Tennant did.
///Smith is an ok Doc, Oswin will be better.


Actually I always thought Eccleston did that better. Don't get me wrong, when the writing was good Tennant was awesome, but it's like the writers were working against his character.

Eccleston was robbed. I'm not sure if he robbed himself or if the people he worked for did it, but he seemed to just be getting into that role. I loved the 9th Doctor but we just didn't get enough of him. Eccleston definitely has the best written season I think. So many of those episodes were just damned good.

And yes, Tennant was awesome in spite of many of those scripts, his director and the producer... not thanks to them. He was fine when he was just acting, (whether the intense, the funny or the miserably depressed and resigned)

but you could tell the performances when they wanted him to constantly and consistently one-up his last performance and after while some of them played off as a person trying to sing a high note they simply cannot reach.... or flogging an already dead horse for the last 15min of an episode. Some stories were so terribly written I think the director just phone it in and expected Tennant to carry the entire thing with nothing but emotion.

While some of his stories were the best Who stories of all time; Family of Blood, Waters of Mars, Girl in the Fireplace, The Silent Library (and let's not forget the two great but less-Doctor-focused Blink and Love & Monsters)

... he has just as many terrible episodes, or episodes that could have been epically great if not due to a bit of terrible writing or producers not realizing they just recorded shiat on tape. Every season finale, The End of Time... (though End of Time has some scenes that rise above that story.. as in anywhere he's in a dialogue with Bernard Cribbins. That was a story so close to being awesome.) There are other things about those years that nag on me. I feel like they pissed away some good opportunities with John Simm. Micky, Martha and Donna all deserved better endings. I could go on and on
