I am starting to find the way the Eleventh Doctor hates himself and is being painted as a ruiner of companions' lives and how he wants to die to be really depressing and off-putting. I really, really had hopes for Doctor Who once Steven Moffat took over, but he seems to be just as bad as RTD was when it comes to messing with the theme of the show, which is supposed to be about hope, adventure, and that the Doctor is a force for good and not evil. I'm tired of the new show forcing companions on him that clearly do not have the temperament to accompany the Doctor. It feels less and less like "ordinary people deserve adventure too not just science people" and more and more like "you should stay home, where it's safe, and people who don't want to settle down to domestic life are sad, lonely losers that you should stay away from." I can get this shit from soap operas, or real life. Fuck.
