What I loved about this ep was 12’s need that the Dalek finds something other than his hate for them.
And I also don’t know if 12 is a good man. Because with 9, I would have said: yes! Because he didn’t kill so readily. With 10, definitely yes because my precious baby was too enthusiastic about everything and everyone (except Dalek’s and Cybermen).
11 I mostly just fast forwarded because I missed the writing and influence of RTD and also companions that didn’t set my toes to sleep (sorry, not sorry). I never got the hang of him.
But 12…I think he might just be the darkest of them. Or the less accessible one. Or maybe we just didn’t see him fanboy over something and be childishly happy about something or someone, yet. I hope he gets that chance. And I think, 9 or 10 would have given Blue at least a lift to somewhere else, not being so cold to her. They would have acknowledged her situation because, frankly, 12 was just as ready to kill first and ask later when it came to the Daleks, right?
So far, much better than 11 and I’m intrigued but imho I also think, he’s much much darker.
