Raggedy Man, Goodbye - Every Episode

“He seemed so happy, but so sad at the same time.”

Raggedy Man, goodbye.

Hello Old friend, and here we are, you and us. On the last page. By the time you read these words your time as The Doctor will be done. So know that we understand your decision and above all else, know that we love you. Always.

Sometimes we worry about you though. We think once you’re gone you won’t be coming back to Doctor Who for awhile and that you might be sad. Which you should never be.

Don’t be sad Matthew.

And do one more thing for us, there’s a whole fandom waiting in anticipation for our next doctor. They’re going to wait a long while, so they’re going to need a lot of hope.

Go to them.

Tell them, that if they’re patient, the days are coming that they’ll never forget. Tell then they’re going to see new planets and run from aliens. They’ll fall in love with a man that chose to carry on the legacy of being The Doctor. Tell them they’ll give hope to other fandom and bring a whole new generation into the family that is Doctor Who.

Tell them this is the journey of the Eleventh Doctor, and this is how it ends.

My feels are broken….

It wasn’t just Wilf who was a touching father figure to the Doctor’s companion…very few people remember Brian Pond (or his name before he met the Doctor, Brian Williams), Rory’s father….but he was amazing.

From helping fly the dinosaurs, to tirelessly watching the cubes, Brian farewells the Doctor, his son, and Amelia Pond by telling the Doctor to take them on adventures, but to bring them back safe….

and the very next episode was The Angels take Manhattan.  How could the Doctor ever face him? He couldn’t even face himself after losing the Ponds.

I really love this video that gives a proper ending to Brian’s character and, in a way, Rory’s….Amy got the epilogue, and she deserved it, but I don’t think we should forget the Williams’ boys. Give it a watch and cry with me. 

List of Doctor Who phrases that will make you cry *tears*

-You were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I.

-Take me back!

-And I suppose, if it’s my last chance to say it: Rose Tyler…

-Oh, Donna Noble. I am so sorry. But we had the best of times.

-Hello, Doctor. It is so very, very nice to meet you.

-I don’t want to go.

-“Doctor, please tell me you know who I am.” “Who are you?”

-“Raggedy Man, …Goodbye.”

-“Don’t forget me.”

-“I’m John Smith, that’s all I want to be, John Smith. With his life… and his job… and his love. Why can’t I be John Smith? Isn’t he a good man? Why can’t I stay?”

-“Save him. You save everyone. You always do. That’s what you do!” “Not always. I’m sorry.” “Then what is the point of you?”
