Right, so series seven of Doctor Who, which resumed at the end of March, has already given me a new favorite Eleven moment. In "The Rings of Akhaten," he gives this speech that Matt Smith, who took a season to really grow on me as the Doctor, just...well, he completely nails it. From his voice, to his facial expression, to the sheer emotion that just pours out of him... That meme phrase "Right in the feels," pretty much expresses what I felt while watching it.

My apologies for channeling Tumblr here, but the gif really works so well with this.

“I have lived a long life and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the last great Time War, I marked the passing of the Time Lords, I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained, no time, no space, just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man.I watched universes freeze and creations burn,I have seen things you wouldn’t believe, I have lost things you will never understand - and I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken… knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on then! Take it!”

Just...you have to really hear his delivery, but the words are enough. So I'm officially saying I love Eleven and Matt Smith for bringing him to life. No one will ever replace Ten, but Matt Smith managed to step out of Tennant's shadow and make his own Doctor, and not only that, but gave him depth beyond "silly madman with a blue box."

And so far the writing, while not perfect, hasn't made me want to throw things, so all signs point to the 50th anniversary special due out in November (which will have Billie Piper as Rose and David Tennant as either Ten or his human/Time Lord hybrid) is possibly going to blow my mind.

Furthermore, that speech did something to my muses and has had me thinking creatively and made me realize I want to create a character like that. Maybe one day.
