The Doctor. An immortal alien genius with a time machine who has save the universe so many times that it seems that the cosmos was constructed just to plague/amuse him. He is the centre of everything, he is very nearly always right and all the people around him (including himself) wax lyrical about how he is amazing in-a-can. He has amazing powers that he just seems to pull out of his Deus Ex Machina, and the entire universe recognises his authority. If you have a skill you can be certain that The Doctor has it too and he is a million times better at it than you and always will be. How does he manage not to be a Mary Sue? I have a theory. Please feel free to add your own, but here is my impression of how the Doctor has managed to coat himself in Mary Sue replant. He cares. He genuinely cares about others. Just listen to the way he talks about people. While everyone looks at him with awe he looks at us with the same respect. While a Mary Sue is a black hole that sucks up all the admiration and gives nothing in return The Doctor always is excited and impressed by our efforts, because he just knows one day were going to be fantastic. And if a man as awesome as him can have hope for us, maybe we do have a chance. Anyone else have an opinion?
