Found another description of the Doctor flapping his hands, this time it’s Eleventh in Una McCormack’s short story “In Search of Lost Time”:
‘A coffee!’ He looks around, enchanted, and his hands flap about, like a dodo’s wings might have done when failing to fly. 'Me! Going for a coffee! In a cafe! Me!’
And there are more short descriptions of him stimming (but it’s called 'fidgeting’ in the story).
Question: why do Doctor Who book writers know that the Doctor stims, including flapping his hands, but we don’t really see it on screen? Or we do and it’s just I didn’t notice? Cause I’d give so much money to see the Doctor flap his hands on screen. There doesn’t need to be an explanation even, just show him doing that, I’d be so happy.
