“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect,” says the 10th Doctor (Tennant) in a 2007 episode. “But actually, from a nonlinear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey … stuff.”

My all time favorite actor isn’t in any of this videos. But if you do decide to watch an entire episode or the whole series, then it’s likely that you’ll get to meet him. But for now…

I would advise PAUSE THIS sometime between the middle and the end. This does look like some cheesy trailer.

then this is important and beautiful. because she, a friend, partner, companion, had forgotten him. but she knew, deep inside, how to bring the memories back.

Then there’s the soundtrack (not now) [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CYDgezeQas%5D [moog cover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dV4yHbese8w%5D

And former actor Eccleston’s personal enjoyment and perceiving on the show:

“… at the heart of the series is a great innocence and decency and purity. I believe wholeheartedly in some of the lessons that you learn from the Doctor, about acceptance and greeting strange things with a sense of wonder, rather than fear and aggression. There is, at the heart of it, a celebration of difference. In the end, the Doctor has to deal with the Slitheen and the Gelth, but initially he gives them the benefit of the doubt. I like that. In cynical times, it’s a good, positive thing to make television about.”

Oh but please, imagine a perfect actor playing depressed lonely Vincent Van Gogh troughout an episode and then just watch this and forget all of the rest. And remember: this is Van Gogh. He just doesn’t know everyone and all the world knows it yet.
