Mm. Still rageful.

Mostly because peoples' (a word which here means "the entire internet so far") reactions all seem to be along the lines of "Doctor Who is about change/he's been here more than two years [HOW TAXING]/it's sad but not unexpected" and are otherwise completely annoyingly accepting about it.  STOP IT.  STOP ACCEPTING CHANGE!  Just because that's what the show has always done doesn't mean you can't still be pissed about it every time and think it's completely stupid. 

Godddddd, I can't stop thinking about how many of my shows have passed their 100th episode mark with the same stars that filmed the pilot.  He'll have, what, less than 50?  Even adjusting for the length of the specials, that is so very unacceptable.  I don't care that they miraculously resurrected this show from the dead; Tennant is impossible to top and therefore I dream of the shiny red button of cancellation, oh yes, I do.

I think I'm gonna have to go drown my sorrows in The Office.  Immerse myself in something significantly happier.  Also BETTER.  And then take an extra level of joy in how it happens to be the more awesome version of a British show.  Take that!  *is feeling bitter and vindictive*

What stunt_muppet said. I never loved Ten like I love Nine and it's easier to just accept it and move on at this point. Not to say you can't be pissed off. Those of us who prefer Nine got one season and that's it (so I had my moment of raging at the unfairness of it 3 years ago and I want to say "Talk to me when your favorite Doctor is around for just one season, 13 episodes, and then I might give a damn" which makes me sound unnecessarily bitchy but that's how it is. So I am rageful, just not about Tennant leaving).

Trust me, it doesn't make you sound bitchy.

In which I am finally rational enough to respond to comments, I think?
I do get that Eccleston was a ginormous jackass and only around for one season (and a British one at that, which only counts for like half of a real season), and you have my sympathies. Shoot, that sounds sarcastic; I mean it sincerely. I refrained from mentioning him, even though I know people are going to bring it up, because if I think directly about it for more than about five seconds I explode with even more (retrospective) rage. (preview: THIRTEEN EPISODES?! WTF KIND OF %(*#%&)(#* CAN'T EVEN DEAL %&#()*&%(*#%&#%. . .) I don't have the brainpower to deal with that nonsense, so I usually shut it up in a corner of the mind's attic and forget about it.

It's just that Tennant has always been so enthusiastic about the role and how much he loves playing it; he really seemed like he'd be around for a good long while so this feels like a blindside.

Ah, I suppose that's why it's not as much a surprise to me as I've been expecting it for a good while what with his decision not to do a full season in 2009 and rumors have been flying since the end of the 4th season that he's leaving.

And here I gave him the benefit of the doubt on that one. *shakes head* Never again.
