Thank you for making this gifset! During my rewatch this summer, I thought this scene was so “Doctor”-y that it could have been played by any of them. Silly yet completely serious. But Christopher Eccleston adds a sort of…I dunno…thing to it, like he’s really really talking to the sonic screwdriver like it has a mind of its own, and maybe it does. (*insert one smutty thought about Nine using the sonic as a bedroom enhancement with Rose. Just one tiny little thought*) And then to have the Twelfth Doctor come out of the TARDIS and say “Shush” to Strax confirmed the fact that I AM RIGHT ABOUT NINE. It’s nice to have that verified, ha ha.
