1 Inconsistency of the Tennant Doctor on Thu May 03, 2018 11:13 pm

I know this has been brought up before, but what the hell there should be a thread for it.

The thing I hate the most about New Who is how inconsistent it is. Its makers seem to do this on purpose. They seem to act like people who pay attention to plot holes, continuity blips are ming mongs and sad anoraks.

Obviously if you say something like "Oh in episode 23 he said he didn't like the Beatles, but then in episode 67 he hums Octopus' Garden" then yeah fair enough that is a petty thing to pick up on, and an obvious oversight. But with New Who they seem to change major things about the Doctors character from ep to ep.

The Tenth Doctor was the worst for this. His morality is all over the place. It seems RTD at times wanted him to be a Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, I never kill my enemies hero, and then at others wanted him to be a Wolverine, Angel, Xena badass who kills and even tortures his enemies to show how badass he is, and didn't care how stupid it looked.

Case in point.

Apparently he never would, unless you piss him off a second time, he'll also forgive you if you've killed billions of people, but if you've killed like  6 then he'll torture you forever. Also its bad for his clone to wipe of the Daleks, an entirely evil race, but its okay for him to wipe out all of his own people, just because their government is evil. In fact he'll even taunt them "get back into hell!"

Yes, the 10th Doctor's punishment of the Family of Blood in particular was incredibly fucked up and grossly out of character. I'm surprised people don't bring this up more often.

Granting them the immortality they've been seeking for so long and then proceeding to imprison them for all eternity? For causing the deaths of what, a dozen people or so? The punishment really doesn't fit the crime here.

Meanwhile the Master has caused the deaths of literally billions of lives across the universe, and yet the Doctor wants to travel across the stars with this monster and try to rehabilitate him? Childhood friends or not, this makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

And don't forget in the Christmas Invasion when he deposed Harriet Jones for merely doing her job when she blew up the Sycorax just after they very nearly murdered a massive chunk of the Earth's population. Is the 10th Doctor REALLY so naive to assume that the Sycorax wouldn't invade anyone else after they left Earth?

He wasn't inconsistent, he was a giant CUNT.
His popularity remains deafeningly depressing.

It was because the writing was inconsistent. As if I'm going to watch any one of those clips again for evidence LOL
