if he did Donna would see it on television, recognize him and thus her mind would burn up.
Eleven has realized this and thus he’s now carrying it to save her life.
He’s got it under control.
“Do you know why there’s never been a Human-Time Lord meta-crisis before?” Because there can’t be.
#I wonder if this moment ever haunts the Doctor #Every time a companion asks him why his ship looks like a blue box #He has to say ”because the Chameleon Circuit is broken” #But inside he’s thinking that it wouldn’t be have to be broken #Because a wonderful and extraordinary SuperTemp from Chiswick figured out how to fix it #That brilliant woman who was as close to a sister as he would ever get #Who had wanted to stay with him forever #She figured it out #because at the end of the day she always was smarter than the Doctor - about the things that mattered anyway #He knows that even if she had fixed it he probably would have ended up ”accidentally” breaking it again #Because of course he loves his blue box #But she’s gone - she’s forgotten him now #and he’ll never get to accidentally break that Fixed-By-The-Brilliant-Donna-Noble Chameleon Circuit #and he’ll never get to swear it wasn’t his fault and just bad luck and maybe they’ll stop for parts later (a trip he will conveniently forget about) #None of those things will ever happen for him #So he will just have to shrug and tell his companion ”the Chameleon Circuit is broken” #And no he doesn’t know how to fix it - just like he doesn’t know how to fix her #His brilliant almost-sister #His Donna Noble (via winterinthetardis)
Pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before. BUT THOSE TAGS ;__; They give me all the sad Donna feels and more ;__;
