#i’m crying #oh i’m crying #i just watched this episode #i couldn’t bear to do it before #but i had to #and it’s just so apparent #how lonely he is #how powerless a time lord can be #without friends #he’s still got them #yes #but they have to leave him behind for better things #it’s so heartbreaking #donna leaves him the way she found him #in a wedding dress #and not having a clue of who he is #and martha finally found the man she was looking for all along even if she didn’t know it #and she’s still saving the world every day #rose is happy #just like she was when he found her #and that’s the way he wants to remember her #happy #and without the power of the bad wolf #just a girl #just a normal happy girl who would save the world #and he’d love her forever even if he could never actually have her #he’s recognizing their importance in his goodbye and paying them back for all they’ve done #and that’s it #that’s his reward #that’s his reward for saving so many worlds countless times #he asks for nothing in return #and that’s why he’s so lonely #because nobody else in the universe understands his burden #nobody #goddammit bbc i thought this was supposed to be a family show
