Ummm…….seriously? this how we’re starting this? K9 chasing a ball in water and blowing up?  Wouldn’t he say something like “My electrical parameters prevent me from retrieving this object, Mistress.” or something like that? K9 would not do that!

Two things I’m willing to bet a lung on:

  • Moffat wrote the line
  • it won’t be nice things

'Moffat wrote the line'

When he just said that Peter Harness wrote the line, I don’t fancy those odds on your lung.

Good lord some people are stupid.

Wow someone can’t read

Steven Moffat when asked about Sherlock series 4 at GOTG UK premiere. (x)

Considering what a lot of Tumblr has to say about Moffat, I don’t think it deserves ANY nice things being said about it.

agreed

so does liamdryden keep half their lung or

DID…DID HE JUST IMPORT TIME LORD KNOWLEDGE INTO HER BRAIN?!!!  So this is kind of like a meta-crisis.  Theoretically she should not be able to survive for long.
SCREW CONTINUITY! (this came first and is also technically un-broadcast so this is really not a jab at anyone.)

Well Donna ending was basically a quick brush under the rug also she didn’t die in the end of time

In Doctor Who and the Silurians, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart blows up the caves of the hibernating Silurians in an attempt to spare the world from their wrath upon their waking again.

The Doctor failed to stop him; he had no idea that the Brigadier…

So it wasn’t the doctor who tried to snap a guys neck or let someone get chopped up in to bits even know he could have saved him ?
And it wasn’t the doctor who tried to smash a guys head in or tried to kill Ian and Barbara 3 times or blew up Skaro and talked a dalek into killing himself or when 5 killed that dalek mutant ? Or when 6 killed that cyberman or when 5 did it either or 3 and the orgrons? Or when 4 killed the president of the time lords or when 6 killed all the Venvoids or when 1 and 2 wiped out the daleks
Nope the doctor has never been a violent man and never will be!

How nice you are. Well, since we’re talking Classic Who now, I give you a quote from Genesis of the Daleks, just moments before he is to touch the wires together and the Daleks are to cease to exist:

Do I have the right? Simply touch one wire against the other and that’s it. The Daleks cease to exist. Hundreds of millions of people, thousands of generations can live without fear, in peace, and never even know the word Dalek….But if I kill, wipe out a whole intelligent lifeform, then I become like them. I’d be no better than the Daleks.

The Doctor knows violence is not the answer. He knows that violence makes you no better than your enemies - it makes you like them. He has made mistakes, most definitely. He even admits it in The Day of the Doctor:

The Doctor doesn’t want Kate to make the mistakes he has made, the mistakes he has learnt from. So he helps, he admits his wrongdoings, and he teaches her that violence is not the answer.

Well I must be watching a totally different show as he still uses violence to solve problems here are just a few examples

The doctor still uses violence and has and will always use guns,swords and other weapons also his hands and legs to beat people up and stop bad people !
So saying he’s never used violence is like saying his human !

I watched the examples. Thank you for taking the time to look all those up! In most of those situations, however, violence was inevitable. The Doctor was attacked first in many of them. It was either Adric or the cyberman in Adric’s death scene. The Master and the Doctor were having a fair sword fight; the Doctor even let him pick up his sword - If he were truly violent he would have stabbed and ended him while he was helpless. The Family of Blood: violence would have been killing them all.

Now the Doctor strangling Perri? Yeah, that’s pretty violent. But you have to remember he had recently regenerated and really was not right in the head. That’s a common occurrence with regeneration. He needs time to recover before he can actually be his true self.

I never said that the Doctor doesn’t use violence. Not in the least. He has, and I’m sure he will in the future. I do say that he tries to avoid it at all cost, however. Because violence is never the best answer, and the Doctor has said so himself. The last words in the Master-Doctor swordfight scene: “How many times have I told you: violence never gets you anywhere.”

Yes you did : you said he’s not a violent man and never will be
These prove your wrong

This really is not why I wrote this article. I wrote it in appreciation of the bridge between classic Who and new Who. I see we have differing opinions. That’s okay. Everyone should be entitled to their own opinions. But I’m not going to argue with you. We are going in circles. Thank you for your input and I hope you enjoy the new series of Doctor Who!

No I’m pointing out a mistake in the article
You said he never uses violence
But he does !
I’m sure he will use violence in series 8 too
