They have him a call box, so you can call him. They didnt give him pointy ears, or lasers. They gave him two hearts, so that he would care for the universe. This was who the Doctor is. His companions define him too. He needs them, they bring out the humany-wumany love. Without Clara or Rose (or the Bad Wolf) he would have burned Gallifrey. He would have sent many to their doom. This brings to mind The Fires of Pompeii, an episode I just finished watching (at the time of writing) Donna yelled and yelled and yelled at the Doctor, to save one, just to save anyone. The Doctor sees things as fixed, or opened, or still. He sees things because hes a Time Lord. Without his companions, he is dark. Darker than the universes most darkest foes.
There are Weeping Angels, Daleks and Cybermen and lots of explosions (naturally).

Im referring to all those people who tweeted that John Hurt was the Doctors name at the end of The Name of the Doctor. Phew, now weve got that out of the way we can carry on.

By Neela Debnath | Arts | Sunday, 20 October 2013 at 4:35 pm So hurrah! Several more lost episodes of Doctor Who have been recovered, this time from a disused television relay station in Nigeria. It hasnt come a moment too soon considering the 50th anniversary is only around the corner. By Neela Debnath | Arts | Friday, 11 October 2013 at 1:16 am Between 2008-2009 Doctor Who had a hiatus of sorts. Instead of a full series there were several specials that saw the Doctor (David Tennant) travelling without a regular companion.
