So Benedict says he wants to do Sherlock for another 15 years?
doctor-whooves-turner asked: Why do you hate the doctor so much? Discorded whooves Zerum whooves Crossed exuestria? It's like you hate himml
*points at Doctor Whooves and Assistant*
You realize many writers put characters through hell when they love them right?
Even canonically in Doctor Who he’s had some pretty awful things happen to him
That doesn’t mean the writers hate him
As writers of our own shows/blogs/fics/whatever, we strive to put this character through hell not because we hate him.
We put him through that to challenge him. To better him. From the experience he can grow stronger, whether its strengthening his resolve or for him to better understand himself or those around him.
We throw him into these harsh environments because we know he can take it. He’s over 1000 years old with experience and smarts, and who lives for new exciting things, we like giving him those experiences, however harsh. And these experiences can either be rare occurrences or the norm, but never a constant. We strive for a balance, where we either throw him a bone when he’s in peril for the majority we see him, or to wake him up from his light hearted romps.
And why I personally plan to break my Doctor down? To build him back up again. For him to rise and take the challenge head on.
We love this character.
And that is why we put him through hell.
