I've been coming across some Matt-hate in different places, and I'm really sick of it. I thought we were over this, guys. :(

So I'm brining this back. It was originally a tag on my Tumblr, but I think that this is important. :|

I am getting really fucking sick of all of the hate and the wars in this fandom. Just get over it and move on. David Tennant may have been ‘your’ Doctor, but he isn’t the definitive Doctor. He isn’t the only one to have played the role - nowhere near it.

The Doctor changes and each new actor brings a new understanding to him and shows him in a different light. It isn’t fair to compare them because no two actors (in any show) are the same. They all have different methods or different ways of thinking about the characters and I personally think that it is demeaning to them to say that they aren’t good for the role just because you miss the other person or because they don’t show emotions in the same way. Tennant was very OTT when he showed ANY emotion but Smith is more subtle and (in my opinion) shows a far greater range of expressions (both vocally and physically) and I think that we should appreciate the contrast and get the fuck over the fact that the Doctor’s face changes.

He changes, the companions change, the TARDIS changes, the writers change. But it is still Doctor Who. It is still a mad, brilliant, amazing, flawed show about a madman with a box and that doesn’t change. Really. Please can people just accept this and move on? Thank you.

This is probably a bad idea. Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] bluerose16 

Step 1: Post this into your LJ publicly.
Step 2: Others will reply anonymously (if they'd like) about what they really think of you.
Step 3: Cry, because this meme is so brutal, and it hurts
