I wish there were a way to grab all of one sort of tag from across one's friendslist.

In other words, I have finally moved on to watching the new season of Doctor Who, and want to know why I should be bonding with Eleven.

Because I'm not bonding. But it seriously took me about eight episodes to bond with Ten (though I stopped wailing about wanting Nine back somewhere around the third ep). And by the end, I loved Ten as much as I loved Nine (if not much more, but hey). I'm hoping that happens here, too...

Anyway, if you feel passionately about Eleven (either direction), and want me to understand why, if you drop me a comment with your Who tags, I'll loff you forever. Or at least a good long while.

He had me from his first encounter with wee!Amy.

I think the thing that fascinates me is that, for being the youngest man to play the Doctor, Matt Smith's portayal actually sells me on the Doctor being 900+ years old. There's a certain bittersweet quality to him--I can buy that he went through all of Ten's ~MANPAIN~, but he's obviously processed it and come out the other side, still retaining that Sense of Wonder that is ineffably The Doctor.

The wee!Amy bits were nice. I liked that solemn little red-headed girl. :)

On the other hand, that was far and away my favorite stuff, and nothing that's come since has wooed me so much. But it's early days yet.

Mostly I didn't read him as anything but slightly terrified of River Song, and not necessarily in an interesting or in-character way. It was so not the relationship that had been established in the library story. The words were right, but the emotion conveyed was all wrong.
