the thing about ten is he also told at least one person, flat out, that they weren’t important.
“Weird, I mean, you’re not special, you’re not powerful, you’re not connected, you’re not clever, you’re not important” to Donna when they first met. I know he took it back later and told her she was “the most imprtant person in the whole of creation” but that still always really rubbed me the wrong way.
also, how mean he was to jackie when she impersonated rose at torchwood…
i think he said similar things to other people on other occasions but i can’t remember specific instances.
this is the main reason that he’s my least favorite.
