The 10th incarnation of the Doctor was light hearted, talkative, easy going, witty and a definite cheeks manner but apart from all that he also demonstrated a vengeful and unforgiving streak. In his first episode after he regenerated he was seen fighting the leader of the Sycorax, when he turned around the leader tried to attack him from behind, the Doctor pushed a button and the Sycorax leader fell to his death. The Doctor commented that with him “There are no second chances”
He also showed a strong personal sense of justice which in turn made him quick to anger when he felt the justice had been violated.
In the Runaway Bride the Doctor drowns the Empress of Racnoss’ children and stoically watches on. He tells Donna that he needs “someone to stop him”
Also in the Family of Blood the Doctor gives each family member an individual and eternal punishment for their actions.
All of his actions were also coupled with a deep sense of regret.
This Doctor had a tendency to babble mixing apparent nonsense with vital information. He also used technobabble to describe scientific stuff (“space… its a big ball of timey wimey stuff.”)
He also rapidly switches moods; one minute he can be manic then angry then nonchalant etc.
This Doctor was also intensely lonely, describing the ability to live a long life as a curse and he also tells Rose and Donna that they cab spend their whole lives with him, but can’t spend his while life with them because they’ll eventually grow old and die 😥 😥
Catchphrases: “Allons-y”, “I’m sorry, I’m so sorry”, “Brilliant”, “Oh Yes” and an elongated “Well..”
The 10th Doctor wore either a dark brown four buttoned suit with blue pinstripes or a blue four buttoned suit with rust red pinstripes, shirt and tie, light brown faux suede overcoat. He always wore different coloured converses, depending on his suit and was probe to wearing tortoise shell glasses.
David Tennant was a brilliant, amazing and fantastic doctor. He could make you laugh, make you cry, he could get you angry and he could get you happy and geeky. He was a doctor that you took to heart and every episode was different than the last. And his relationship with Rose… well he clearly loved her and the scene where she gets trapped in a parallel world and you see the sadness in his face… you can’t help but cry. And when he regenerated… god… his last words “But I don’t wanna go” OH MY GOD I CRIED BUCKETS!!
This is what made him brilliant… you went through all the emotions he went through and when he left I thought no one could replace him but well 11 cane along and….. (okay so that’s for tomorrow!)
But honestly David was a brilliant Doctor and I can’t wait to see him back in the 50th!
