for doctorwho‘s 7 days of who.
in series 9, i want to see the doctor!!!!! deal!!!! with his PTSD!!!! i mean, maybe not even DEAL with it, he’s bad at dealing with those sorts of things, but i want to see it addressed. i want it to be acknowledged outside of some ( pretty fabulous ) acting choices. i mean, just LOOK at his reaction to a gunshot in mummy on the orient express:
this is not just the look of somebody surprised by a gunshot. this is a person completely about to have a anxiety attack, and forcibly stopping it because other peoples’ lives are at stake.
i just want the narrative to address this a bit more. i want somebody to notice it and ask if he’s okay. the doctor makes mistakes, lots of them, but he tries so hard and he forgets that he deserves to be cared about too.
