A few weeks ago, we started going through the new Doctor Who series and watching the episodes we liked. We're up to the last few episodes of season 3 (the one with Martha), and I'm realizing a couple of things.
One, that I really like how they set everything up over the course of the season for these final episodes, and also, these last few episodes of the season are really good. (Not perfect, perhaps, but really good.)
Two, I'm definitely seeing the arrogance and harshness of David Tennant's Doctor starting to come in. He's still got another season plus what amounts to a season worth of specials to go, but by the end, that version of The Doctor really needed to leave. He was too convinced that whatever he wanted to be right was automatically right.
