the tenth doctor

rjalker:

Do you see him? Do you see what he is doing? He is working. To help the Daleks. To help them become something more. To free them.

Instead of, you know, leaving them behind to burn and coercing them into killing themselves even though they are literally harmless and asylum patients

That happens in Journey’s End – the (real) Doctor leaves ‘mad’ Caan, who was working against the rest of the Daleks, to burn along with the rest-

-and attempts to save Davros.

Rose: you upset my mum
Elton: great big absorber beast from outer space and you’re upset with me?
Rose: no one upsets my mum.

#oh my god #I’d forgotten this scene #this is why, isn’t it #this is why he always told her how special she was #how important #how brilliant #because he remembered the time when he was so callous #the time that, for all he knows, might have contributed to her shitty self esteem even more #the time he told her she wasn’t special or important #which coming from him is harsh #I mean the Doctor thinks everyone’s important #but in that moment #with a brain addled with heartbreak #and a heart aching for his Rose #he told her what she already thought about herself #and who knows #maybe that’s why she never believed him
