The Doctor, Waiting, and Endings
Eleven is a funny mix of contradictions, isn’t he? He’s wise yet child-like; he’s warm, but with a sliver of ice in his heart. He has many more contradictions, personality-wise. But there are also two curious philosophic contradictions that come up time and time again with the Eleventh Doctor regarding waiting and endings. It is in these contradictions that we find his two most powerful points of character development. I’ve seen many claim that they don’t understand the Eleventh Doctor’s arc, but I believe they can be found in these two themes.
