Day 05: What habit of the Doctor’s makes you laugh the most?
Y’know, each regeneration has a different personality, and each personality has a great hurkin’ load of ridiculously endearing habits. BUT there is at least one habit that all the NuWho Doctors share, and that is how extremely little-kid they can be. (Of course, that’s following in the tradition of our beloved Four, who said—repeat it with me!—“There’s no point in growing up if you can’t be childish sometimes.”)
The Doctor has lived many lives. He has seen and felt and lost so much; if it’s pain that matures you, then he’s an adult a thousand times over. But in blank defiance of all that agony, the Doctor has kept a part of himself youthful forever. There’s a Peter Pan in him, just as much as there is a god. And his laughter, sounding through the galaxies, brings my own laughter to my lips.
I mean, look at him. Just look at him.
I love how the Doctor makes me cry. I love how the Doctor makes me think. But most of all, I love how the Doctor makes me laugh.
