Anyone who griped about Ten/Rose drama should have hated [The Angels Take Manhattan], but from preliminary reactions I’ve seen, they love it. The Doctor was absolutely shameful here, turning into a simpering, self-absorbed man-child refusing to respect his companion’s wishes. Contrast this to how Ten behaved when he lost his companions. When he lost Rose in “Doomsday”, a woman he was actually in love with, he went catatonic a while, then found a way to contact her to give her one last farewell, and was very mature and realistic about it. When Martha left him to be with her family and basically told him to go fuck himself, he was okay with that. He didn’t put up a fight, he didn’t argue, he didn’t whine, he simply respected her decision and kept to himself how much it hurt him. When he lost Donna, he very pointedly tried to deflect any discussion about how he felt about it because he knew that making sure Donna was safe was much more important than softening his emotional blow.
And that is, in my opinion, why Ten is always going to be superior to Eleven, because the very fundamental core of Ten’s character, to his very end, was that the needs of normal, everyday people outweighed his own and he would suffer any loss, take on any burden to ensure they were safe. To Eleven, everyday people are an audience. They exist to tell him he’s amazing and clever and to be impressed with him, and if they don’t, he has no need for them. Ten worked towards solutions ideal for everyone else, Eleven worked towards solutions ideal for himself.

And from that review:
"River has a heart-to-heart with Amy, telling her that she needs to reinforce his juvenile behavior by continuing to shelter him from reality, because forcing him to grow up and act like a responsible adult by means of learning from bad experiences isn’t worth it if it means having to put up with his whining. “He’s really old, and really wise, and the bestest at everything he does and really brilliant…but don’t let him see you get old and crusty, he doesn’t like that. Now I’m going to go fix him some lunch and cut the crusts off his sandwich.” “
Because that shit right there is absolutely horrifying, and I hate it, and its JUST A REWORDING OF WHAT SHE ACTUALLY SAYS.
Welcome, blog readers, to the Camlann Village Experience. What is Camlann Village, you ask? Well, only the quickest way to be transported back to 1376, to rural life in England.
