Rap Sheet: Final tally of The Doctor’s crimes

Here at The Salt Lake Tribune’s crime blog, I tally the crimes characters commit and evaluate what potential sentence they could serve for them. In the lead up to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary, I’m taking on the oncoming storm himself — and since I do not have the time to review the Time Lord’s decades-long continuity, I’ve narrowed the focus to Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. You can check out part one here.
When we left off, the bow tie-loving Doctor had destroyed a shed, stolen a fire engine, a mop, a fez and a priceless museum artifact (to name a few), kidnapped a child and blown up part of a Cybermen fleet. Whatever he condemns his earlier, John Hurt-portrayed self for doing, it must have been pretty terrible to earn the condescension of a man with that kind of record. And the Eleventh Doctor’s rap sheet is not even finished yet. Here is the second half of the run down, completing series six and going through series seven.
