Heehee, thanks... I have more (I always have more, especially since I just stopped by some D/R-oriented tumblrs) but I try to keep it in my pocket. Someone should do a study about character critique standards in this fandom.
Thinking about it more, they might be in a sort of no-win situation with Hurt's Doctor, because I think there's going to be confusion either way--he was introduced out of chronological order, so there are a lot of ways to refer to him. I think it's mostly Hurt Doctor or War Doctor now, but I can see later fans (or some revival down the line) calling him Nine without context, hence confusing us cranky old-timers. Eleven's current TARDIS is rather beautiful, but it does seem a bit greedy, especially since the changes to the TARDIS through the classic series were minimal except for the wood version with Four.
I always assumed they wouldn't just get Billie to play Rose as that limits things so much as to when events take place in various timelines.
It never made sense in combination with knowing Queen Elizabeth would be in the special, but I was also going at it from the point of view/idea that because of Rose's popularity, etc., she had to be in the special. (Part of that is also on me as a fanfic writer, because I wanted to write a 50th fic in June-August when I was less busy, and didn't because I can't write Rose, so a couple of assumptions and a frustration reinforced each other.)
I was actually sort of furious that Moffat had Clara all through the Doctor's timeline, because of the on-show implications and the fourth-wall issue that it looks like he's trying to one-up RTD.
Oh, me too! I want him running around and making gadgets and escaping in ridiculous fashions and all of that.
