Pretty much everything. By the way I'm getting the impression from you that you're only familiar with New Who or maybe have limited knowledge of the classic series. You should of noticed the contradictions between what Vastra was saying and what was previously established by classic era Time Lords. I can't really blame you for that when the series is over 50 years old and many of the classic episodes have been lost. Mostly in the Troughton era. This is the second time you've said mommy instead of mummy. I'm just going to assume you're doing that intentionally as a joke because the British tend to pronounce mommy as mummy. Though I'm not entirely sure if you're actually trying to be funny or not. Anyway... What information did the Doctor learn from each death that he didn't already know after the first person died? Also, the Doctor has always been a bit of a jerk, I mean the first Doctor literally kidnapped Barbara and Ian but he's never gotten this bad. If the companions are meant to keep him kind, they aren't doing a very good job with 12, he's worse than ever now. Plus there was a period where 10 was traveling alone between when Donna forgot him and when he regenerated he didn't have a companion and he was still nicer than 12 is. 11 also traveled alone for a while after he faked his death, again, he didn't lose his kindness just because he didn't have a companion around. 12 lost it and the only time he's ever traveled alone was between Clara leaving and the Husbands of River Song. Maybe nothing but again, I'm not mad that someone died. People died even before 12. It happens. I'm mad that he didn't try. The Doctor always tries, some times he fails, but he always tries to save them. The fact that they can move adults doesn't imply that they're strong. They're just pulling people under water, that doesn't really require a lot of strength. If they were in the air lifting people up that would be different but when people are being pulled down gravity is doing most of the work. If someone falls though a hole in the ice they're going to sink anyway even without creatures down there pulling them in. Yes the ice was closing around him but there was a few seconds when the hole was still large enough to pull him back out. Plus again it's possible he could of broken through the ice depending on how thick it actually is to rescue the kid. If the Doctor had time to save his Sonic, then he had time to save the kid. If there was really nothing he could do, then his Sonic would of been lost as well. The same effort he put in to save the Sonic Screwdriver could have been put in to save the kid. He chose not to save the kid and only cared about the Sonic which shows he's just heartless. It shows he's not the Doctor anymore. That's the Valeyard, the darker aspect of his personality. The Doctor would have tried to save him, even if it a wasted effort, even if he would have died anyway, he should have at least tried. There's also the fact that this is the only Doctor who doesn't show any sign of morning after a death. Even the first Doctor cared about the people who died and he was quite possibly the biggest jerk of any previous Doctor. The War Doctor even showed signs of grieving before he actually did anything to grieve for. He knew what he was planing to do would destroy both the Time Lords and the Daleks but he also knew he didn't have any other choice and he still displayed signs that he was conflicted with that decision. He's more of a Doctor than 12 and he wasn't even the Doctor during that time. The only time I ever see 12 showing signs of being the Doctor is when he's protecting Clara or Bill, and when he was with River, anyone else who isn't one of those three he doesn't appear to care. It's not enough to just say you care, I need to see it in his actions and his actions tell a different story. His actions show me that he's a heartless bastard that doesn't care about anyone except the people who are the closest to him. Clara and Bill have seen that too and that's why they've both reacted so negatively towards him. Clara trusted 11 but she started to lose that trust with 12 because of how differently he's acted. And don't forget Clara has been inside his time stream, she's interacted with every incarnation of the Doctor. She probably knows him better than any other companion. That should really give you an indication of how different 12 is when Clara even has trouble trusting him. Bill is literally just getting to know him, she doesn't even understand what regeneration is so it's not as big of a deal but still. The real world purpose of the companion is to give the audience someone to relate to. How they feel about the Doctor, how they interact with him is suppose to represent the audience in a way. Obviously this can never be perfect as you and I have demonstrated in this discussion. We're always going to have different opinions about things so how the companion reacts can't always match up perfectly with how we react. That being said, in these instances I'm in total agreement with them. You obviously disagree and that's fine. So um... agree to disagree? Also have I mention that I've been liking Bill more and more every episode I see? It's kinda of weird how quickly I've gotten attached to her. I was kind of on the fence about Clara at first until Nightmare in Silver and I never actually hated her the way I did in Bill's first episode. That doesn't really make sense. Maybe it's because Bill is only going to be on for this series that they're developing her character so quickly.
