So you had a completely beloved, completely up for it, and completely immortal judging by the whole not-ageing-a-single-day thing, Classic Doctor at your disposal, and you decided to pluck one out of your arse for the 50th instead?
Look at this man! God is clearly keeping him frozen so he can reclaim his rightful role or at least get a spin-off series.
It just baffles me why we had a brand new Doctor. A Doctor we will never see again. A Doctor that was not necessary. A Doctor that mucked up the numbering system. A Doctor that wasn’t even The Doctor in anything but name, and then got forgotten about.
What was the point of that? Was there a point to it?
We had Eight, who should have been ‘The War Doctor’, absolutely desperate to get back into the role again, but for some unknown reason Moffat decided John Hurt (great actor, props to John) would be better.
THE 50TH SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT CELEBRATING THE PAST. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT THE LEGACY OF DOCTOR WHO. IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AN OOC FANFIC WITH A BIG NAME THROWN IN FOR VIEWING FIGURES.
Paul McGann, the glorious, talented, perfect Paul McGann was willing to get involved and instead all you gave him was a regeneration that lasted a few minutes.
I will be angry about this forever. End rant.
