There's a reason I keep seeing this posted.

In fairness, it's not as ludicrous as it seems, because it's different people saying all of those things (mostly). Some people hate every Doctor, old or new. Some people like every Doctor, old or new. It's just... the way things are in the universe. The problem is the Internet making us try to combine all of those reactions into one coherent whole when obviously that's nonsensical.

Haha, right? Not long ago, someone on the general comments claimed credit for calling it re:wank over the new Doctor and I thought, dude, there's ALWAYS wank about the new Doctor, even if it ends up being another white guy.

I think you'll find that the existence of wank over a new Doctor Who actually proves that all of my pre-existing beliefs were entirely correct

much like anything else that happens

So very true, OP

The reaction was funny when Eccelston left, and to some extent also when Tennant left, because it was easy to say, "Oh, you newbies, this is just how Who works!" By now, though, everyone should know better. Even if you don't like the new Doctor, it's not ruined forever, just wait a few years...

I am not a fan so maybe I don't understand but I thought they were all different characters.

The Doctor is always the same person - the same being - but regeneration comes with personality changes as well as physical ones. It's like a string of people who all share the same cumulative memories and have a single core identity and set of values, and share the same body (even though it morphs into new shapes).
