No! Please, don’t!
#every acting award ever #i know a lot of people criticise ten for being whiny and difficult and bratty in this scene #i feel that those who do have pretty much completely missed the entire arc of ten’s character development #of all the new!who doctors he is the most painfully perfectly HUMAN incarnation #nine is the battle-weary scarred alien destroyer of civilisations. #eleven is a dorky alien dude with a penchant for hats and a dark streak the size of an oncoming storm. #not that ten doesn’t have his alien or oncoming storm aspects. he does. but predominantly he is HUMAN. #he was born from sacrificing himself as nine to save rose. he was born BECAUSE of her.#throughout his entire story arc ten delights in humanity. so many times he WANTS to be human. to take that slow path with rose. #at one point he even IS human in the family of blood storyline. #and he is TERRIFIED - as we all would be - of disappearing. of course as a timelord he doesn’t die. #but HE - as ten. as the man who loved rose and martha and donna. - HE won’t exist anymore #of course he rails against it like any human would. he wants to cling on to life. the life he knows. his identity. his humanity. #and this is his reward? oh baby. #so he rants and raves and is sadly startlingly painfully human. and then that last gif. #he pulls himself back. he KNOWS he’s being whiny. he knows that in the bigger scheme of things he still lives.#so he gets on with it. he was born for rose and now he dies for wilf. #he dies for wilf and he dies for DONNA. he’s giving her her granddad back. #and this is why i love ten. always and forever.(via virginiachance)
