Here’s my quandary:
I would love to see some historical places, meet some pivotal figures, and especially see my ancestors.
But everywhere the Doctor goes, he’s almost always walking into a slaughterhouse. Now, while that’s not typically his own fault, and he does a fantastic job of saving the cattle (in the analogy), I certainly do hesitate to put him anywhere near my ancestors, partially because I prefer they continue having lived and bred as they did until I eventually came along.
So, where to go with the Doctor?
Well, perhaps the future!
Where I’ll get massive spoilers of things to come which I can’t prevent – wait, it just hit me, how is it that the past can be rewritten but not the future? – and see our advances go horrifying and apocalyptic several times over.
Ok, how about the present, then? Out among the stars!
And meet so many aliens that want to kill me, which, I rather prefer being alive and intact, ya know?
So, what, then?
…honestly, I’m not sure I’d go anywhere with the Doctor. It’s all very nice to sit here and have vicarious adventures, but I rather prefer the comforts of home and family over the wonders of the universe.
I’m boring like that. 😉
So maybe I would just invite the most strange and fun guest over for dinner sometime. 🙂
