So, Greatest Show in the Galaxy.

I've watched about one third of it so far, and I have to get something off my chest:

I don't care about the bad, BAD eighties-ness. I don't care about the ridiculous plot, the blatant fan-mockery, the embarrassing one-shot characters.


I don't even know why. I have no idea what I love about him, all I know is that whenever he does or says anything, I'm just filled with love. I adore him to itty bitty pieces. I love his voice, the way he talks, his mannerisms, his hands, his clothes, EVERYTHING. Honestly, on a ratio-basis (ie, how much screen time I've seen versus how much love I've felt) Seven is my favourite Doctor already. From the forty-or-so minutes I've seen, I love him more than Ten. SERIOUSLY.


(Also, I've just finished watching Mark of the Rani, and wow. I didn't know they could be that blatant about Doctor/Master (in canon, since we all know how Curse of Fatal Death ended) before RTD showed up. Ok, that's a lie, I mean, I've seen Sea Devils and Mind of Evil, but still.
The Rani makes fun of the Master's obsession, like, constantly, and the Master doesn't even deny it.
Also, Six and Peri are SO doing it. It's the only way their relationship makes sense: they're completely an old married couple who half-hate half-love each other. And I don't hate Peri, despite her terrible voice and constant whining. I'm rather immune to whiny characters, and I quite like watching her and Six interact and go between insults and caring for each other.
And, finally, I would like to say that Six is adorable. He might be unstable and crazy and really, REALLY bad at dressing himself, but I don't know, I like watching him.)

So, that makes... 9/10 Doctors that I love. I haven't seen One, so no judgement there, but, within no more than two serials, and often one episode, I've fallen in love with each Doctor that I've seen. I seem to have some sort of automatic Doctor-love thing going on.

Two - took me two serials to love. He was a bit irritating in The Mind Robber (although I enjoyed the serial more than I thought I would), but then Tomb of the Cybermen won me over. Also, Two/Jamie is canon. 

Three - first Classic Doctor I watched because I wanted to see moar Master, and fell in love with him from the first serial I watched, Terror of the Autons. His era is my favourite overall, of Classic Who. Also, I love Jo, SO MUCH. She reminds me of a ditzier, more sterotypical 70s-chick Rose, both regarding her kick-ass capabilities, her bonding-with-random-characters thing, and her adorable relationship with the Doctor. LOVE!

Four - my GOD his voice. I'm so glad I didn't grow up watching him and being squicked by Uncle Tom syndrome. Also, based solely on City of Death and the RIbos Operation, Tom Baker has perfect comedic timing.

Five - so pretty! He's a bit bland, but I adore him anyway. Maybe a little bit because of his blandness. Also, pretty!

Six - said it above.

Seven - likewise. (OMG I LUFF HIM.)

Eight - um. MOAR PRETTY! Also, the sole positive aspect of the Doctor Who movie, and what a positive aspect it is! I've been reading through a few of the EDAs too, and, despite the constant amnesia thing, he's really loveable, and a bit of a woobie.

Nine - well, my first Doctor, and the reason I fell in love with the show in the first place. What more do I need to say? I loved him from "nice to meet you Rose. Run for your life!"

Ten - duh. Actually, I was really worried about the transition here, because I've had a bad experience with character changes before with Due South, and I did NOT want to repeat the Kowalski experience: unconventionally attractive man that I was madly attracted to is replaced by pretty boy that everyone seems to like better. The similarities scared the hell out of me. But David Tennant completely won me over, even though it took until, I think, Runaway Bride for me to be absolutely certain that I could love him as much, or more, than Nine. Then I truly fell into the fannish circle of hell after I found myself completely unable to watch past the first five minutes of Last of the Time Lords, instead devouring all the Doctor/Master I could find, and the rest is history.

I don't know what the point of that was. Wait, yes I do - rambling about myself is fun!

ETA: Now I'm over half-done, and my love for Seven is actually growing, like, exponentially. It's a bit frightening how much I completely adore him, and quite honestly, I think it has to do with the purposeful way he moves. Didn't McCoy go to clowning school or whatever? I mean, you learn all about space and movement, and the way he moves, it's like he's 100% confident that he is exactly where and when he should be, and like everything he does is absolutely certain. I don't really know how to put it, but I certainly like it.
