Favorite monster, villain or creature
1. The Daleks
When you think of The Doctor, you think of the TARDIS, and then course, The Daleks. They are the total evil to The Doctor’s good. Although sometimes, like in the story ‘Dalek’ the tables seemed to reverse, when The Doctor displayed Dalek like qualities.
2. The Master
3. The Weeping Angels
4. The Cybermen
5. Vashta Nerada
This episode of Doctor Who is THE one for any new fan watching the show for the first time, it has everything in it, and is THE episode I recommend to anyone watching for the first time. When asked explain Doctor Who, I tell them watch Blink. Scares, The Doctor, The TARDIS, scary monster, humour, great direction, story and characters.
2. Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways
3. The Caves of Androzani
4. The Girl in the Fireplace
5. The Snowmen
1. Rose Tyler
For a character that attracts equal love and hate, Rose was the perfect character at the right time for The Doctor (when the series returned in 2005) It’s the story of the companion who literally saved The Doctor, and the Universe.
2. Donna Noble
3. Sarah Jane Smith
5. Captain Jack Harkness
1. Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston)
The Ninth Doctor, for me, although we see only one series from him, was the perfect Doctor for the restart, fresh from the fires of the Time War, he literally mellows and learns to love life and the Universe again, thanks in part to Rose, this was my son’s first Doctor too, although mine was Jon Pertwee and I will always love the Third Doctor, my memories of the Ninth will last forever.
2. Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee)
3. Tenth Doctor (David Tennant)
4. Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)
5. Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy)
Favorite TARDIS set
Eleven’s latest one
Saddest moment in Doctor Who history
The regeneration of the Fifth Doctor was very sad, a very well acted scene. One that remains with me forever, as was the Tenth’s. Donna’s memory being wiped also brings a tear.
Greatest Doctor Who opening sequence ever
I remember the Fourth’s mostly because it was haunting and as a kid, I always got chills from it.
Greatest Doctor Who writer ever
Steven Moffat and Russell T Davies.
Both from the new era, but they have literally brought the show to a new auidence and generation.
Why Doctor Who endures
Change. Pure and Simple. It can change and yet, still be the same. The Doctor is the same man always, but the ability to reinvent itself, refresh and move on keeps the show alive, interesting, addictive.
Greatest Doctor’s costume
For me, it’s got to be the latest offering of the Eleventh Doctor.
