I thought it was a fucking great last line. What the fuck was wrong with it?
It made him sound a little whiny!
That said I quite liked it, certainly his delivery of it.
The line made sense, because he really DIDN'T want to go. And, it was a great antithesis to his trademark line: Allons-y*!
*(its French, for Lets Go!)
Was this what you meant?
Made him sound like a whiny selfish coward who wasn't about to just have a face change...
But then, this is Ten we're talking about.
So you're going to hate what's coming at Christmas then?
Oh well, at least if it does go that way we'll only get one episode of him moping about rather than two...
Written by a man who's never met an emotion he's failed to express adequately. (Unless you count snark as an emotion.)
Was that aimed at me or Moffat?
LOL, I was about to post "But, Starkers always seemed emotionally healthy to me"
Depends how whiny, selfish and cowardly his last line is.
Hope to hell the Doctor doesn't go into the final story with foreknowledge of his impending regeneration, I would rather see a return to the classic formula of him dying for whatever universe shattering reason and accepting his fate. The last few minutes of the End of Time only made it more difficult for audiences to accept Matt's Doctor.
A changed that he considered was almost like dying. Made him more of a real person rather than this Timelord Victorious laughing in the face of death stuff.
Would like it if the Doctor didn't foresee his regeneration. We already had similar situations with series 6 and with the way 10 went out.
The idea of him seeing it coming isn't limited to the new series of course, take Four/The Watcher/Five
It wasn't. That was the whole point of the line, and in fact, of the entire scene.
I wonder if anyone got any set pics.
Awww. Adios Eleven, or rather, Geronimo!
