Matt Smith is definitely a more alien Doctor than the previous two.

Which is why I think he's become my favorite of the three. He isn't just some goofy guy running around getting into trouble.

It's just like replacing the Doctor with a lookalike robot. In this case, you're planting a headstone to keep up appearances.

The Doctor didn't replace himself with a lookalike robot. The Tessalect always was shot, he was just mistaken about it being the Doctor.
Exactly, the tombstone was always fake, he was just mistaken about it being a real tombstone with Rory and Amy beneath it.

We must be watching a different show. In fact, I'd think I was watching a magic mirror if I was Jar Jar Binks watching the Eleventh Doctor.

Well he is a goofy guy running around getting into trouble but there's something other worldly about him. I never got that from the others.

Unless you are wrong, in which case New York has blown up. That's the point you're missing. You could be right, however, the Doctor, who is usually pretty good about figuring these things out, thinks you are wrong.

Aside from his big weird face, he's no more alien than any ADHD child whose orange squash someone forgot to dilute. Even Christopher "miner from down the pit" Eccleston was more alien, and he spent all the time eating chips and trying to shag bimbo chavs.

I'd toss out the lot of them for the return of FOUR.

You don't see it but I think most people do. There's something of the night about this Doctor.

Smith is also the only Doctor I've sen so far that truly scares me. He's happy and running around having adventures a lot of the time, but piss him off, and he will make you wish you'd never met him. I've watched "A Good Man Goes to War" half a dozen times, and the scene with him and Colonel Runaway still gives me chills.

I'm surprised people didn't see these qualities in number nine.

I had a hard time watching Nine. I just couldn't help feeling like Eccleston didn't want to be there.

There's "something of the night" in every Doctor. Four had his deadly serious moments, too, so did Three and One was officious and dour for most of his run.

I'm only reacting like this because it feels to me like people have too easily forgotten that there were eight other Doctors before the crop we're discussing, and the newbies are all light-years behind a couple of the old guard in terms of sheer awesomeness. In my eyes, that makes the debate about whether Nine, Ten or Eleven is better or more mature or what have you pointless. None of them will ever match up to Four. None of them will ever match up to Three.

(deep breath) Rant over. Back to the sub-topic.

There's been a Regression of maturity. Nine was most mature, but with a frat boy streak. Ten's maturity came with screeching and whining. And Eleven...sorry...is a man-child with ADHD. It's just blatant.

I'm sorry but I don't remember any of the old ones aside from their faces. No memory of the way they acted. I can only speak of what I do know which is the last 3. Rant all you like, that's the way it is.

I'm fairly certain you've been watching a different show for years now.
