Ken Plume

Favorite monster, villain or creature
1. The Daleks
While there may be more chilling creatures to send one behind the sofa, nothing can match the simplicity of terribly mad mutants in their own little boxes as a counterpoint to The Doctor. And oh, what an iconic design! Perfection with a plunger!
2. Yeti
3. Cybermen
4. Ice Warriors

Favorite episodes
1. Tomb Of The Cybermen
It’s got all of the elements of a classic 50s sci-fi flick, with some of the most chillingly beautiful camera work the show has ever managed. It’s one of the few times the classic series was well-served by still being in black & white. Oh, and Troughton is just perfect.
2. Inferno
3. The Doctor Dances
4. The Eleventh Hour
5. Blink

Favorite companions
1. Sarah Jane Smith
The complete package – Brains, Chemistry, Charisma, and Chutzpah.
2. Ace
3. Jamie McCrimmon
4. Amy Pond
5. Donna Noble

Favorite Doctors
1. Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy)
Though given short shrift by lackluster scripts and production values, he was the first Doctor to really bring together the best elements of the previous Doctors into a mercurial dervish who could turn dark on a dime.
2. Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton)
3. Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)
4. Tenth Doctor (David Tennant)
5. Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith)

Favorite TARDIS set
Current (Eleventh Doctor)

Saddest moment in Doctor Who history
Sarah Jane’s departure.

Greatest Doctor Who opening sequence ever
The fiery arrival of Matt Smith at the beginning of The Eleventh Hour.

Greatest Doctor Who writer ever
Russell T Davies
Could also be its worst.

Why Doctor Who endures
It’s a strange man in a strange box that takes you on adventures through time and space. What’s not love about a show that’s bigger on the inside?

Greatest Doctor’s costume
Tom Baker in full scarfy splendor.
