Doesn’t like soldiers? ….This isn’t even all of them….

I’m so irritated, so sorry if I get ranty.

I saw someone defend this whole bullshit by saying ‘look what the time war did to him’, but remember all of New Who was after the time war. In that time, he worked with unit (and really liked Ross), he grieved for The Brig, and he was close to Wilfred. There was never a soldier hating thing after the time war so WHY start it AFTER he saves Galifrey?! I’m sorry, but the time war had nothing to do with this random soldier hate.

To me, it seems like they want to do some kind of arc where Danny Pink helps the doctor to accept or understand soldiers or some nonsense, but when some of your best friends have been soldiers and you’ve even lived for years with soldiers as their scientific adviser…that kind of arc isn’t necessary. If anything it’s just dismissive of the history of the show and the character, which is weird considering how much Moffat and Capaldi have said they wanted to protect it.

I can’t believe they took it there and I can’t even imagine how the soldier fans feel about this.

ooooh shit you have said this to the wrong person

*Clearing throat*

Sergeant John Benton and Captain Mike Yates were the Third Doctor’s companions and part of UNIT they were in the show from around Season 7 to 11 and Benton is in episodes in season 12 and 13 (also he was in season 6 and met the second Doctor, He was in The Three Doctors as well). Mike makes an “appearance” in The Five Doctors and is in Dimensions in Time. Ok so if you are going to say they are not companions well what the hell is this then imageThe what chronicles? the COMPANION CHRONICLES

now if you do not agree with me on this please go away i do not have time for people who do not love the UNIT boys.

Dear Anonymous: Even if you don’t think Benton and Yates count, Steven Taylor certainly does. And Steven was a soldier. He was a captured POW on Mechanus when he first encountered the Doctor and company.

Highlander Jamie McCrimmon: piper and soldier in the Jacobite rebel army. 

Enough said.

Ian Chesterton served in the Army, and finished in the Air Force.

Ben Jackson was a sailor on the HMS TEAZER, which was a radio-sensitive fighter ship.

Bret Vyon and his sister Sara Kingdom were sworn officers of the law and never hesitated to use deadly force.  They were both soldiers.

Jamie McCrimmon was a fighter for the Jacobites.

Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart (later the Brig) was a soldier’s soldier.

Harry Sullivan was a doctor, but that never stopped him from fighting.  He wore his uniform proudly and with distinction.

Leela would have been proud to be called a soldier, for she knew there was no shame in taking battle orders from a commander you trusted.

Jack Harkness.

Wilfred.  He was as proud to serve as he was to have never taken a life.

Rory.

And there are more, and there will be more.
