Surviving Regeneration

This little article from Emily Asher-Perrin at Tor seems about right. I think Matt Smith may end up being “my” doctor. I’ve enjoyed Nos. 9 and 10, some wonderful stories and Donna is my favorite companion, but Matt’s pitch of whimsical alienhood and cantankerousness at the right sorts of things stole my heart. I’ve been a Peter Capaldi fan since ‘Local Hero’ so I know I will go with the new direction willingly, but I will miss the Raggedy Doctor.

And I love the acknowledgment of that collective ownership that all us Whovians, the fans who give themselves over, have toward the story, which makes it bigger than any one actor or writer/director.
