This is so important. Some viewers want the Doctor to be this paragon of morality and goodness, and for me, well, he’s not. He’s never been that to me, even when he claims he is. But that doesn’t make me love him less. He’s hypocritical, selfish, meddling, arrogant and downright vengeful sometimes. But only sometimes. He tries very hard to be kind and to be good, even when the universe has been neither of those things to him. And I think that is the point. That’s the point of the character, and of the show as a whole.
