Mind your own business, Dalek.
I can’t be the first one to make this joke, can I? That episode happened almost ten years ago.

So usually when I see stuff on the First Doctor, it’s in the context of all the other Doctors, or he gets simplified down to a few memorable traits—the crotchety old man, the dear old grandfather, “You can’t rewrite history! Not one line!” and “Someday…I shall come back. Yes…I shall come back.” Which is all well and good! And I totally get why lots of fans haven’t seen many of his serials. It’s okay! I’m not here to fan-shame. Instead, I want to share my love of him, and some of my own interpretations of him. These aren’t the only ways he could be interpreted. But for those looking for tips on characterizing him without watching every serial like I did, it may be helpful! It’s only one fan’s perspective, of course, and I make no claims that this was the writers’ intent, or Hartnell’s intent—only my reading of the final product in the larger context of the show’s history.

Guys. Guys. I know there are only like five of you who care about this, but this makes my nerdy heart sing.

So Doctor Who got canceled back in 1989 by the BBC, and the world wept. Then, in 1996, somehow America was all, “Oooh. This epic show. This looks like it could make us money. Let’s make a movie!” (I’m sure there were more good intentions involved, but that level of complexity is for a time with less squee.)

I can imagine that the British populace just blinked a lot and remained suspicious.

But it was awesome for Paul McGann, who was cast as the eighth incarnation of the Doctor. He had grown up with Doctor Who and always dreamed of playing the Doctor (a lot like David Tennant, except ten years earlier). Plus, you know, he’s also a really great actor and all that good stuff.

Unsurprisingly, the movie… wasn’t the best. And everyone was disappointed by it, but especially Mr. McGann, what with the actualization of his childhood dream being all around disappointing. But since he liked Doctor Who so much and loved playing the Doctor, for the next nine years (before the Davies reboot of the Doctor Who TV show), Paul McGann worked on anything he could that was related to the show, most impressively a series of radio plays by a company called Big Finish. This great actor got payed basically peanuts to voice the character he loved. This in spite of the fact that for a very long time, most people wouldn’t even acknowledge McGann’s incarnation of the Doctor as being canon.

So even though I do have some issues with Steven Moffat (although not as many as a lot of people…), for this he gets a thousand goodwill points from me. Cause fuck yeah Eight and Paul McGann.
We will now return to your regularly scheduled reblogging.

They got Karen from the same episode too… I don’t like that ten has already interacted with him UNLESS they plan to use this.

headcanon that 12 was just messing with 10 and Donna because he knew exactly who they were

I mean he stole the TARDIS 

must have been walking down the street and like, oh that’s where I parked you

Then 10 shows up and he realised went ‘Oh’
