see, that’s it. that’s the difference between RTD and Moffat era. because while 10 was all about exploring and the Doctor learning new things and being all happy about it and showing the wonders of the universe to companions, 11 and 12 are only bored and they expect to know everything about the universe. because there was a danger in all of these 3 situations and while 10 was happy he’d learn something new, 11 and 12 were irritated they didn’t know everything about the universe. and that is the thing that really pisses me off right now.

i disagree. 
there’s danger in all three situations, yes. the difference is how much the doctor feels in control, how important it is for him to know everything at the given moment. it has nothing to do with how fascinated the doctor is with the universe or not. eleven was facing an alien invasion on earth and he had no idea how to deal with it, if it was dangerous or not; twelve was amnesic and in the middle of a deadly bank heist that someone forced on him. they’re not bored, they’re worried. honestly, if you think eleven and twelve are bored with the universe - after seeing eleven’s giddy, childish excitement at things, jumping around like a 5 year old; after seeing twelve’s fierce passion, searching for the “listen” creature, showing courtney the stars - i really can’t tell if we’re watching the same show anymore.

didn’t you think he just gets older and when you’re older you want to be sure i certain things. it’s a perfectly normal reaction, you see.
