The Revival Series Doctors and their companions & enemies.
Haha oh wow even the snowmen are here!
Watch the Songtaran Carols video here.
This is one utterly fantastic! Strax is quickly becoming one of my favourite characters! :D
I don’t watch doctor who and even I had to reblog this
reblogged for Widdlez.
Oh-oh my goodness.
He should open every sentence like this, I’m the Doctor, I’m a Timelord, I’m from the planet Gallifrey, In the constellation of Kasterborus, I’m 903 years old, and I’m the man who is gonna order a pumkin spice chai tea because it’s quite chilly out and I enjoy those flavors in autumn.
Why do I have a boner again.
And Then Theres Rory <3 <3
So, I was thinking about doing that ‘30 day of summer break Who’ meme. But, let’s face it, I’d get half way through and forget about it. As usual. Besides, I’ve only seen the New Who, and- though I do love it so- I feel that it may get repetitive.
Anyway, I was browsing other responses, and got to thinking about my favorite Doctor. After several hours of contemplation (I’ve got a rather boring job) I’ve come to the conclusion that the Doctor is my favorite Doctor. No, this isn’t some cheap cop-out. I really truly cannot pick one over the others. Why?
Let’s start with Nine: He was my first Doctor, so of course I have a special place in my heart for him. But it’s more than that. Chris Eccleston played him beautifully. I’ll admit that I found him mildly abrasive at first. His constant mood swings- he was almost manic at times- and that goofy grin.
Then I saw Dalek. I realized that the quirkiness wasn’t just a side-effect of the Britishness of the show. It was the crumbling facade of a man trying to hold himself together- for her sake- despite the incredible burdens he had to bear. He realized that he was often the only thing standing between those ‘stupid apes’ and certain destruction. Nine was the oncoming storm. (None of the others really ever lived up to that title for me) He is the one I’d want to have my back at the end of the world. He is solid, reliable, and just a little bit frightening. For that, he is my Doctor.
But then there’s Ten: Again, I kind of hated him at first. He was gangly and awkward, and never shut up. I had just fallen in love with Nine, and suddenly he’s gone, and they’re trying to convince me that an ostrich with great hair is a little bit foxy? No.
But, like before, something happened. I think it was sometime during ‘The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.’ His chemistry with Billie Piper was so… tangible. On top of that, he had such a love for life. Everything was ‘beautiful.’
I think the ‘Human Nature/Family of Blood’ episodes were what sold me on Ten. It was here that we really began to glimpse the darkness that lies behind his charm. The silliness is all well and good, but- up until now- I didn’t really see him as a force to be reckoned with. The Fury of a Time Lord showed us his power which, to me, is one of the sexiest things about him.
Fast-forward to the ‘The Waters of Mars’ (since I don’t really want to write a novel about Ten on here). This is probably my favorite Doctor moment of all time. His ‘Laws of time should obey me/Time Lord Victorious’ speeches completely changed the way I view the Doctor. Before, I saw him as this kind of kooky, yet formidable, figure. The physical embodiment of Chaotic Good. But Ten’s transformation in ‘Waters of Mars’ made me wonder if the Doctor wasn’t a little bit evil. History is written by the victors, you know, and since the Doctor almost always wins… What could we be missing? Ten challenged me, and for that he is my Doctor.
Now we have Eleven: Surprise, surprise, I was prepared to hate him. How could this child ever live up to the greatness of his predecessors? Yet, somehow, he did. And, I might add, he won me over much faster than the other two ever did. He is still kind of awkward, but charming, and still has some pretty great hair.
His greatest asset, though, I think is his voice. Eleven is so much more soft-spoken than Nine and (especially) Ten. He is thoughtful. He speaks quietly, with just a hint of mischief. I like that.
Eleven was once described as a lonely little boy, which I find almost painfully accurate. I see him as something of a Peter-Pan type… A little boy, older than you can imagine, who is a little wild and loves a fight. (How many women have you abducted? Millions.) It’s as if he is trying to full his life with companions and adventure so that he doesn’t have to think about the baggage from the past. (Notice there are NO ties between the world of Eleven and that of Nine and Ten).
I think that this sort of innocence he has now, coupled with his potential, makes him almost more dangerous than the others were. He is unpredictable and subject to whim. That’s why he is my Doctor.
Rewatching Eccleston’s series before this week’s finale for the reasons described here. After seeing “Dalek” and the final two episodes of Season 1 (specifically that speech he gives the Daleks right after they kidnap Rose) just makes me tingle with excitement. Going to miss him once again!
Tennant was my first, during the Christmas titanic Episode as nothing else was on TV. After that one episode, I was hooked, watched the rest of the season, then started back at Eccleston.
As for Smith, I hated him at first because, as you said, my first Doctor will always have a special place in my heart, but now that Smith is here, the series is just as exciting.
