Kate Beaton, excellent person and superb comic artist, gives her impressions on Doctor Who without actually having seen any of the show. Unsurprisingly, it’s wonderful.

… I think his brain gets rewired and different bits lead to different sections every time he regenerates. I think David’s Doctor had an amazingly well wired-up brain, more than any other Doctor.

RTD: Oh, I wouldn’t presume to say.
DT: He’s quite a natty dresser, is Matt. He could probably delve into his own wardrobe for something fairly … They may have to tone him down, actually. He’s quite wacky. In a very stylish way, of course. Makes me feel old.

RTD: Yes, but it’s not as good as David’s.
DT: Ha! It’s different.
RTD: It’s good hair. I like his hair.

RTD: The poor man. We’re discussing his hair!
DT: Well, so’s the rest of the country. We may as well join in. I’m just glad it’s somebody else for a change.
