Amber Phelps – Best of ‘Doctor Who’ 50th Anniversary Ballot

Amber Phelps
I work for Shakefire.com. I discovered the show with the 2005 reboot, and have since devoured everything Whovian I could get my hands on.

Favorite monster, villain or creature
1. The Weeping Angels
They are such a unique idea, and the possibility of the lore behind them is fascinating. Plus, they are scary as ****.
2. Vashta Nerada
3. The Master
4. The Daleks
5. The Silence

Favorite episodes
1. The Angels Take Manhattan
This episode really showcases how time travel works in the Whoniverse and encapsulates the bond between the Doctor and his companions.
2. Blink
So scary.
3. The Aztecs
Explains the dangers of time travel.
4. (tie) The Satan Pit, Rings of Akhaten, and Voyage of the Damned.
Heartwrenching speeches from the Doctor
5. The Waters of Mars
Exemplifies fixed points in time and what happens when the Doctor travels alone.

Favorite companions
1. Rory Williams
I’d actually consider him Amy’s companion, but he is the perfect mix of romance and adventure. He waited for her for 2000 years, and when the time came, he wasn’t afraid to stand up and fight.
2. Sarah Jane Smith
3. Donna Noble
4. Rose Tyler
5. Ace

Favorite Doctors
1. Tenth Doctor (David Tennant)
He was so animated, and you could really tell he loved the character. He has been a fan of the show since he was a kid, and that passion really showed through in his performance. In the same episode, he could make you laugh, cry, and cheer.
2. Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)
3. Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith)
4. Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy)
5. Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton)

Favorite TARDIS set
Eleven’s in series 7. It looks like so much fun!

Saddest moment in Doctor Who history
When Ten left Rose at Bad Wolf Bay.

Greatest Doctor Who opening sequence ever
Series 2 of the new run.

Greatest Doctor Who writer ever
Steven Moffat
But Russell T Davies is a very close second.

Why Doctor Who endures
Regeneration. The show can literally remake itself into something completely new, while at the same time remaining all the things that fans had come to love about the show. It’s nearly impossible for it to become stale.

Greatest Doctor’s costume
Four. The scarf was so iconic, but my favorite part was the pockets. He kept everything you could possibly need in those, and was always able to pull it out at just the right moment.

Greatest fan-made Doctor Who video
Not exactly fan-made, but David is a fan, so I think it counts!
