While I usually love the Doctor, here he seems wasted and silly., 19 February 2015
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

I think that the Doctor (Robert Picardo) is the best member of Voyager's crew. He's funny, snippy and very interesting as his character evolves throughout the series. However, occasionally the show really struck out when it tried to expand his character and "Darkling" is clearly one of these times.

The Doctor is trying to expand his programming by interacting with various historical characters. Unfortunately, this has unforeseen effects on him and he becomes a 'Jekyl & Hyde' sort of personality. At the same time, Kes is considering leaving the ship and going on an adventure with a new guy she just met. How these two plots interact is something you'll have to see for yourself.

The problem with this one is that changes in the Doctor are just fine--insane and HUGE changes aren't. It all comes off as very contrived and silly. The only real positive I see in this show is that the writers finally decided to have Kes and Neelix break up-- which is so positive as Neelix's jealousy is so boorish and annoying....and a bit creepy.
