I just want to say you’re a brilliant, wonderful, talented, and quite sexy man.

Your first series remains one of my favourite Who memories. You were so different, so alien, so playful yet with that very carefully judged dark and manipulative edge. You were so… The Doctor.

And even though your next series was a mess, the one after that has had its ups and downs, and your hair wasn't as good after 2010, you’ve continued to give stunning, funny and touching performances throughout. The Eleventh Doctor has been great. Except for the awkward misogyny and that bit where you killed David Bradley. But that’s just about cancelled out by the way you said “look at the detail on that cheese plant!” in The God Complex.

I’ll be very sad to see the Fall of the Eleventh. But change is what keeps the show going and change is something for us both to be excited about.

Honestly, I’d prefer to see you and Steven Moffat leave the show together, so that we could bring in an entirely fresh new take on Doctor Who, a new take on the character rather than another Moffat Doctor – a whole new era, just like in 2010, in 2005, and, well, in 1963 (some of the show’s best years, in my humble opinion).

But Steve’s sticking around. Despite my issues with his recent showrunning, I promise that, in the spirit of the Doctor, I’ll remain open-minded and optimistic about what the future may bring. And, of course, I’ll look forward to your two final adventures.

Come along, Geronimo, bow ties have been cool, etc.
