Problem with The Doctor’s Wife:
Imagine the First Doctor calling the TARDIS “sexy”.
Doesn’t fit, does it?
The first Doctor didn’t actually KNOW The TARDIS, though. He didn’t know at all how to fly her, and up until The Edge of Destruction he had no idea that she was anything more than a machine.
You don’t have pet names for people (or sentient machines) you don’t know.
And different Doctors would have different pet names for her, probably.
That’s what I think. I’m sure each of the Doctors called her something else. The Eleventh Doctor, as we saw in The Eleventh Hour, took a delighted look at her and said “you sexy thing”.
I’m sure each of the Doctors — even the first, the one who normally called her “the Machine” — had a private pet name that he called her, when there was nobody there…
stm117 asked: After I watched "The Doctors Wife" the second time, a question happend to pop up for me. Aside from story telling, is there a reason IDRIS is named as such. Every one else on House is named by a title, so would it not stand to reason that she should be Niece. Thanks for your time.
She wasn’t niece, though. She was Idris. One day she was going to a party somewhere nice with people on it, then she found herself pulled through the plug-hole in the universe, and living on an intelligent asteroid.
keavictus asked: hello there! this has been bugging me since i saw the doctor's wife; do you know why the doctor did not get mad at the tardis for effectively killing idris?
The TARDIS didn’t kill Idris. House did. And the Doctor got very mad at House.
