Steven Moffat has said that calling Peter Capaldi’s incarnation the ‘Twelfth Doctor’ is wrong.
Speaking in SFX magazine #251, Moffat said: “I’m just going to throw this continuity grenade back at Doctor Who fans and say, ‘You are all wrong!’ He has never called himself the anything-th Doctor in the show.
“If the Doctor was a real person and walked in here, and you said, ‘Which incarnation are you?’ he’d have to think, just as you’d have to think about how many houses you’ve lived in. He never thinks of himself as a numbered Doctor. The Twelfth Doctor means the twelfth actor to have played the lead in Doctor Who. That’s all it means. There is no such character as the Twelfth Doctor and never has been.
“It’s a long time into the show before any such nonsense ever comes up. It’s purely us lot, us fans, wittering on about calling him the Third or the Fourth Doctor – which is actually quite an unpleasant thing to do. It doesn’t feel right at all when you type that. I had to do that for the [50th Anniversary] special. It was the Tenth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, and it felt like a betrayal, in a way. But what else could you do?
“Out of curiosity, I looked at what they did in ‘The Five Doctors’. They didn’t number them at all. Do you know what they called them? The Hartnell Doctor, the Pertwee Doctor…” x
From “The Lodger”:
(The Doctor head butts Craig.)
(There is a very rapid montage.)
CRAIG: You’re a
CRAIG: You’ve got a Tardis.
DOCTOR: Yes. Shush. Eleventh. Right. Okay, specific detail.
Admittedly not written by Moffat but IN HIS SEASONS, so you’d think he’d remember it.
Actually, even better, HE LEGIT REFERRED TO HIMSELF BY NUMBERS IN THE MOST RECENT EPISODE,when he’s explaining to Clara why he can’t regenerate and bullshits: Well, number ten once regenerated and kept the same face. I had vanity issues at the time.”
From The Five Doctors, where Davison and Hartnell (well, Hurndall)’s Doctors first meet:
SUSAN: Is he really-?
DOCTOR 1: Me? Yes. Yes, I’m afraid so. Regeneration?
DOCTOR 5: Fourth.
DOCTOR 1: Goodness me! So, there are five of me now!
Didn’t look very hard, did ya pal
remember when doctor who didn’t have as big of a budget so they had to rely on plot
whats perfect about jack harkness is he doesnt hit on everyone because he has low standards he just really thinks everyone is hot
#always remember #no matter who you are #or where you are #or what you think of yourself #captain jack harkness thinks you’re hot #and would most likely #should the oppurtunity present itself #fuck you
I remember all the Doctor Who fanfics I used to read where Rose often got badly stereotyped as a damsel in distress whom the Doctor had to swoop in and save and smooch but the way I remember Doctor Who 90% of their relationship was the Doctor just setting Rose loose on people who had done something to offend them and sitting back giggling in the corner as she shouted
setting Rose loose
