  Doctor Science Knows
One of the best illustrations of how subtractive masculinity works is in a old, not all that good science fiction story, "The Last Man" (written by Wallace West in 1929, anthologized in The Pocket Book of Science Fiction).

I do like science fiction, although I haven't read as much of it as I'd like (my reading habits are too eclectic to concentrate on one genre for long).
Given that we can't have an old-style Doctor, I'd rather have Eccleston's radical new interpretation (justified within the narrative by the Time War, and maintaining some essential points of continuity with the old Doctors) instead of Tennant's uneasy attempt to combine two very different styles.
