This is my new favorite gif

I still haven't watched any Doctor Who after that stupid victorian brain-controlling robot fiasco. I can't come to terms with Donna, I just can't, and I thought I'd be okay with my Doctor kicking it, but I'm not, and I just didn't like the *show* enough to suck it up and suffer through bits I know I won't enjoy. I may occasionally be a masochist, but not like this; not for this. :/

You don't just dangle ineffable perfect adventure and beauty in front of a person's brain and never deliver. The string has frayed and the carrot has rotted and I have stones in my hooves.

This is so sad! I'm only in season two, and now I'm somewhat dreading the future of the show. I don't completely know what happens with Donna, all I really know is that Rose left for some time and then came back and Ten recently kicked the bucket, and now we're on no-eyebrows Eleven. But other than that, I'm pretty clueless.

I don't know, I don't think I'll handle the new doctor very well, either. Soo... without getting TOO spoiled, what should I know about future disappointments, so I'm ready and all? :P

Oh. Erm. Sorry about that.

Basically the Doctor is an enormous dick. But you kind of already knew that. A big part of me doesn't want to tell you so you get fully stomach-punched like intended.

Donna is the awesomest character in awesome town and just when she finally achieves her awesomeness apex it's all just fucked. Basically, the entire damn shows invalidates itself.

Wow, really? That sucks. I don't want the Doctor to be an enormous dick. He's my favorite.

I don't really know you or your preferred style of stories or anything. I have a lot of *ideological* problems with the story arc from the end of season 2, onward. Ideological in that, I don't believe that's how the story of the Doctor should go, how the myth of the Doctor should grow, and it's all kind of ridiculously high-falutin' on my part. You might like it just fine.

Does anything happen in particular that makes him seem super dick-ish? I mean, he has his faults I suppose. But so do all the characters thus far. He never really stood out as being a jerk or anything, other than maybe the way he treated his original companion. But if there's a specific thing that happens to bring out that side of him, I might change my mind.
