Who is more caustic and depressing, Voyager's Doctor or Gregory House? Who was instantly redeemed and mellowed out becoming beloved by all those around him after a 1/4 season, and who is a bigger jerk after 4 years?
It's morally bankrupt to instantly redeem characters for no reason practically between scenes and between episodes.
Voyager would have been better if the Doctor had gotten worse after parallax instead of sublimenting itself into a non event.
Indeed, you allow him to grow as a 'person' and he grows into a lecherous nasty asshole... that would have been more fun to see develop.
oh and his holo-novel should have been a porno featuring the crew, with all the fallout that would have generated.
