character: hate them | don’t really care | like them | LOVE them | THEY ARE MY PRECIOUS (I don’t really hate him? But it’s a strong dislike.)
ship with: No one, because Doctor x River was really unhealthy in my opinion, Amy x Eleven is just gross, and I don’t really see anything romantic between Clara and Eleven tbh.
favorite friendship: Amy
general opinions: Are you sure you’re ready for this? Are you really sure? Okay, so basically, Eleven just really annoys me because he’s childish at the most inappropriate times and there’s just no real depth to his character. He doesn’t even really grow as a character, like tbh I probably wouldn’t be able to tell Season 7 Eleven from Season 5 Eleven. Also, I’m totally not gonna overlook the fact that he destroyed all those Cybermen just to find out where Amy was or the fact that he wanted to kill the star whale or when he wanted to destroy that robot thing in Town Called Mercy? I could list so many more.
I don’t like the way he talks about Amy like mentioning the lines around her eyes or how his way of demonstrating that Amy was “grown up” now was to call her Amy Williams. The way he calls her “the legs”. The way he leaves Amy to wait around while he goes to do all the interesting stuff, like in Victory of the Daleks. The way he treats River is kinda crappy too because like? He literally leaves her in the grip of a Weeping Angel? He doesn’t care about the fact that she’s in prison?
Also the way he seemed to not care about anything or anyone was just really terrible imo. And the same thing is continued with Twelve where Clara has to be his “carer”. Nine or Ten never would have said anything like that, because they actually cared so deeply about humanity and the things their companions did. He literally says (and I don’t care if it’s a joke, because it’s still rude and totally not what an earlier Doctor would have said) that the companions are there to be impressed by him, and even River says that the Doctor’s “friends” are supposed to listen to the Doctor, which is totally not the point? I don’t like the way the companions are sidelined so the show can focus on the fun the Doctor is having and whatever Impossible Impressive Thing™ he’s doing.
He’s just so unpredictable and rude, like he literally gets mad at River because he just saw the chapter title in TATM and he “doesn’t like endings” and how he gets so annoyingly impatient in The Power of Three. Also, the way he treated Clara more like a “mystery” that needed to be figured out than an actual person for most of his time traveling with her just made me angry. The way he insults her appearance even more than he did Amy? Oh, and the way he totally ignores consent (especially with Jenny, who is btw a married queer woman)? Yeah, that’s so. incredibly. wonderful. But it’s okay though, because he wears a fez and bowtie and sometimes makes funny jokes, and that’s cool, right?
Send me a character?
