false i do not miss him  
I'm busy with family still but here's my drive-by reaction post to "Time of the Doctor".


  • lmfao I hated 99% of this

  • like this must be how people who hated RTD and Ten felt when they watched End of Time

  • i’m so beyond investment though that i wasn’t even mad I was just like, sorry for matt smith & everyone else

  • let’s start with how moffat’s idea of humour in a regeneration episode is LMAO PEOPLE ARE NAKED!!!! CLARA IS NAKED IN FRONT OF STRANGERS AND SHE’S UNCOMFORTABLE WITH IT AND THEY CAN SEE HER NAKED!!!!!! LOL! NAKED!!!

  • let’s continue with the heartfelt heartstring tugging when OH NO THE DOCTOR’S PET CYBERMAN HEAD HE HAD FOR ONE EPISODE DIED! the humanity

  • and his good friend/lover??? tasha lem is a dalek! oh no!!!!!!!!! truly this is a cruel world

  • but it’s ok because he insulted her and that snapped her back into being human or whatever

  • eleven spent 200 years off screen and another hundred or so in s7a and barely changed but his 300 year battle turns him into a wizened old man? ok

  • matt smith spent most of his last episode buried under prosthetics and wigs lmfao

  • clara saved the day by crying again!!!!!! god bless clara’s magical tears and the time lords who heed them

  • the entire universe wants the time lords dead except their BFF the doctor l o l

  • eleven’s entire story is one big time loop WOWWOWOWOW WHO COULD EVER HAVE PREDICTED THIS WOW STEVEN MOFFAT TRULY AN INNOVATOR

  • any emotion i might’ve felt over eleven and clara was so thoroughly zapped out of this ep by him sending her away twice

  • once again this entire episode was about the blessed doctor and how gr8 he is lmfao WHAT ABOUT HIM!!! WHAT ABOUT HIS LIFE! seriously we’ve done this every single moffat finale ok we get it

  • things i successfully called and must now gloat over: ‘the long song’ appearing as an instrumental while eleven’s dying. I KNEW IT.

  • the ‘legendary’ character being amy pond

  • actually, amy’s cameo was about the only bit i liked. even if that was blatantly not caitlin blackwood and karen was obviously in a wig. i wanted amy to get a cameo and was glad she got more than stupid barnaby waiting

  • bring on peter capaldi but give me 8 months to drink to forget this is the calibre of writing he’ll be dealing with

Yes, your thoughts are my thoughts. I spent 99% of this episode horrified by what was happening onscreen (but couldn't disconnect with it, unfortunately). Especially:

let’s continue with the heartfelt heartstring tugging when OH NO THE DOCTOR’S PET CYBERMAN HEAD HE HAD FOR ONE EPISODE DIED! the humanity

I felt like I was missing something here. The music told me this was supposed to be a devastatingly tragic moment... Uh...

eleven’s entire story is one big time loop WOWWOWOWOW WHO COULD EVER HAVE PREDICTED THIS WOW STEVEN MOFFAT TRULY AN INNOVATOR

Hahaha, ugh, yeah. This is actually the part that bothered me least, because hopefully it would wrap up everything about the Eleven era.

So sorry for Matt Smith that this was his send-off.

I'm not, currently, as angry as I was right after watching--some distance has helped me--but man this episode was such a mess.

lol I was so angry over the 50th because it ruined things I care about, but with this episode I have nothing in me to be angry about, since I stopped caring about Eleven and his godawfullly-written plot a long time ago. In a lot of ways I think this was a perfect summation of Eleven's era -- complete with gross inappropriate jokes, women allowed to do very little, everyone heralding how magnificent and wonderful the Doctor is, a convoluted plot that mostly happened off screen, the Doctor dying of old age because Steven Moffat physically cannot bring himself to kill any character any other way.

I'm sorry that Matt had to go out on this note because I think he as an actor deserved better. Whether or not I think Eleven as a character deserved better... I dunno.
