Okay. So Leah and I put off watching Doctor Who for ENTIRELY too long.. Leah took some time to fall in love with The Doctor, but I was on board from the beginning. So, since we both finally agree that this show is amazing, here is a small sampling of how and why it was so easy to fall in love with The Ninth Doctor.
I love me some good, old-fashioned sass, and our first Doctor on the reboot has got PLENTY.
Look, he’s a Time Lord. He’s the last Time Lord. It’s his job to be adventurous; however, he surprises me with the amount of adventure he is always willing to go on:
3. He’s Optimistic
The Ninth Doctor has seen it all. Don’t you think that after all he has seen, he would be more than happy to give up on life and people and aliens? No, this makes him work even harder to find the good in people, aliens, and situations.
4. His Righteous Anger
Let’s be honest, The Doctor has a lot to be pissed off about. His entire race is dead. His home is gone. He can’t just have a nice relaxing day at the beach because billions of people would die. But hot damn the Ninth is good at expressing his anger. Just DON’T say dalek.
This is when we first meet the adorable Rose Tyler. We see her change our hardened Ninth Doctor into a softer, more human version of himself. We see him start to really care for Rose and even sacrifice himself to save her in the end. (Even if that was just momentarily).
6. He’s Decisive
When the Ninth Doctor makes a decision, he follows through. Even when he doesn’t know the outcome. (Or does he?)
7. He’s Understanding
Remember that time Rose ruined THE WORLD by saving her father? She really pissed Nine off, however, he accepted her apology and moved on. No one likes someone who holds a grudge*
8. He’s Confident
I mean, who else is going to be confident for him?
9. He’s Fantastic
We’ll end on that note. He was awesome. Let’s hear what you think… WITHOUT SPOILERS PLEASE!
Oh… and reason 9 1/2?
