if anyone thinks the Doctor and his companions have always been good little pacifists beans they could not be more wrong

like, man, first storyline ever the Doctor wants to kill a dude by bashing his head in with a rock (which, funnily enough, is how an audio decades later would dictate he actually did murder someone when he was only a kid) and is stopped by the guy he just essentially kidnapped

a while later the new fifteen year old companion straight up tries to murder Nero and nonchalantly shrugs about it when she tells the Doctor about switching the cups around

I’m not saying One and Vicki are casual murder friends but then again I have always said they’re immensely similar people/kindred spirits despite one being a Time Lord and another being a human teenager so maybe that is exactly what I’m saying

and then you have Leela. who just. straight up murders multiple people. and the Doctor treats this like a pesky quirk like “oh you, stop that” most of the time

so basically what I’m saying is 

that just because Ten is a hypocritical, self-righteous little shit, don’t hold Eleven or Twelve or anyone who writes them to some ridiculous pacifist standard that RTD should not have established (or possibly did not mean to establish, he might have meant it to be interpreted differently)

the Doctor is not a role model of pacifism okay


Ian and Barbara’s lives are changed forever after following Susan home from school.

I wanted to create a video showing some really cool stuff from the first doctor era, as it’s not as widely watched as New Who. So. Here was my try.

The Chesterdorks: invading each other’s personal space & being completely married since 1963 [2/8]

  • Ian: Good. Thanks, dad... Why is everyone staring at me?
  • Vicki: You just called the Doctor "dad". You said "Thanks, dad."
  • Ian: What? No I didn't. I said "Thanks, man."
  • Doctor: Do you see me as a father figure?
  • Ian: No! If anything, I see you as a bother figure, because you're always bothering me!
  • Barbara: Hey! Show your father some respect!
