And he misses it really, really, really badly.
And he really, really, really wants to come back.
And yes, I know the Caretaker told the 11th Doctor he might revisit an old familiar face once in a while.
But to come back and actually BE the Doctor? Sorry but Doctor Who must move forward. And 2nd acts are never quite as good as the 1st. Whatever joy and magic that Matt would seek to recapture from his first turn as the Doctor may prove elusive in the second and make being the Doctor a less fondly remembered experience.
"But people change and so must I," Matt himself said in his final moments as the 11th Doctor and it is a very true statement in life and certainly in the world of Doctor Who.
Tomorrow on the blog. Sorry but back to the world of politics as I look at Hillary Clinton's pick for her vice presidential running mate and what to expect from the Democratic convention. Also during the week, The Pixar Project returns as we look back at The Incredibles and a review of Star Trek Beyond.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you come by again. Until next time, remember to be good to one another.
