You’re turning me into you.
This moment absolutely broke my heart for so many reasons. The Doctor wants nothing more than to do the right thing; in previous incarnations, he was criticized for letting his emotions be the cause of his downfall, but in this moment, he was genuinely trying to look at the grand scheme to do what was right. The Doctor shoulders so much guilt and responsibility for the Universe; if you can’t see the guilt behind nearly every single one of his actions, you are not looking closely enough. The Doctor is the most feared being in all of the cosmos, but no one fears him more than himself. Here Rory is, so torn and destroyed by a travesty caused simply because someone pressed an incorrect button - and he says the line that absolutely tore my heart in half as an Eleven stan. Everyone expects The Doctor to save the day and do the right thing, but no one - not even Rory Williams - can bare the idea of doing what he has to do. In fact, especially not Rory Williams, who has the biggest heart of literally any other television character I’ve ever seen. It’s a Catch 22 every single day. Every minute. Every time period. This is what the Doctor does… and I think this was the first time Rory really, truly realized it.
The nurse is finally learning what it takes to be a Doctor.
