Matt Smith , better known as the eleventh doctor or simply the Eleven in British hit TV series ’Doctor Who’ , was only 26 when he started the show ,making himself the youngest doctor so far. He was the Raggedy Man and the Mad Man with a box. With his indisputable enthusiasm and witty charm, he was quite the badass still retaining some moments of seriousness. Here are 6 instances that speak of the same.
1. GeronimoWell, Nine had “Fantastic!” and ten had “Allons-y!” So, clearly Eleven needs his own and what better than ‘Geronimo’. “Geronimo!” reveals a fearless attitude with a willingness to jump into a situation where consequences be damned.
2. So come on then! (Ring of Ankaten )Eleven: Okay then. That's what I'll do; I will tell you a story. Can you hear them? All these people who lived in terror of you and your judgment. All these people whose ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves to you. Can you hear them singing? Oh, you like to think you're a god. You're not a god, you're just a parasite, eaten out with jealousy and envy and longing for the lives of other. You feed on them, on the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow! So... So... Come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you've got a big appetite because I've lived a long life and I've seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I've watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn't believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told and knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on then! Take it! Take it all, baby! Have it! You have it all!
"I have lost things you will never understand" So true with him losing the Rose, Donna, Amy, Rory, River Song and countless lives. The speech is my personal favorite. When the badass music kicks up a notch and The Doctor begins his rant, you simply know that shit is about to get real.
3. “I. AM. TALKING!”Eleven [transmitting to the alien fleet using loud speaker]: Sorry, sorry, dropped it. Hello, Stonehenge! Who takes the Pandorica takes the Universe! But, bad news everyone, 'cause guess who! Ha! Except, you lot, you're all whizzing about, it's really very distracting. Could you all just stay still a minute because [shouts louder] I AM TALKING.
[All ships halt] Now, the question for the hour is, "Who's got the Pandorica?" Answer: I do. Next question: "Who's coming to take it from me?" [Gestures to all the alien ships as a challenge] Come on, look at me! No plan, no backup, no weapons worth a damn, oh, and something else I don't have: anything to lose! So, if you're sitting up there in your silly little space ships with all your silly little guns, and you've got any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight, just remember who's standing in your way! Remember every black day I ever stopped you, and then, *and then*, do the smart thing! [Pauses and continues with normal tone but still amplified] Let somebody else try first. [All the ships flee off the Stone Hedge]
When The Doctor talks, everybody (by everybody, we mean EVERYBODY) stops their mission and listens. Every foe of The Doctor’s has united on Stonehenge to get their hands on the Pandorica. It’s a prison that supposedly holds the “most dangerous man in the Universe” and is one legend that even The Doctor doesn’t believe to be true. But that doesn’t stop our doctor from delivering this brilliant speech which makes every foe run for their life.
4. The Doctor: “No, wait, hang on. I know what I need. I need… I need… I need… fish fingers… and custard!”After what can be considered as one of most dramatic regeneration of The Doctor , The Doctor and the blue police box(read:TARDIS) crash in front of Amy Pond and we have got to admit that cheating death by regenerating the cell can take a lot of toll. No wonder he’s completely famished.
5. The one thing you never ever put in a trapThe Doctor: “Didn’t anyone ever tell you? There’s one thing you never put in a trap. If you’re smart, if you value your continued existence, if you have any plans about seeing tomorrow, there’s one thing you never, ever put in a trap.”
Angel Bob: “And what would that be, sir?”
The Doctor: “Me.”
Eleven’s first encounter with River Song also happens to be his first conflict with the Weeping Angels (my personal favorite). Upon summoned to the planet of Alfava Metraxis by River to help with a crashed starship, they find themselves trapped by an oncoming horde of Angels. They strongly believed that they have finally trapped the Doctor and sure they did. But there’s just one thing you never put in a trap, however…
6. "Good men don't need rules. Today is not a good day to find out why I have so many."(My personal favorite)Madame Kovarian: "The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good men have too many rules."
Eleven: "Good men don't need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many."
Damn those chills every single time. That delivery is simply perfect.
While the Ten is my personal favorite doctor, the Eleven is no less. He will always be my doctor and I will always remember him. Always. You will be remembered Matt.
