Richard Armstrong – Best of ‘Doctor Who’ 50th Anniversary Ballot

Richard Armstrong
First saw the TV movie in 1996, watched that and the Peter Cushing movies repeatedly. Then watched the relaunch from the beginning in 2005.

Favorite monster, villain or creature
1. The Ood
2. The Daleks
3. The Weeping Angels
4. The Silence
5. The Sontarans

Favorite episodes
1. The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang
It had so many great moments, the greatest being the Doctor becoming what River had predicted years before; the most fearsome being in the universe. Without any weapons, he’s able to talk down a whole fleet of alien ships, and then his enemies lock him up because of how dangerous he’s become. The Rory/Amy story is also great, I loved Rory’s devotion in waiting around for two thousand years. And the Doctor dances at the end.
2. The Eleventh Hour
3. Human Nature/The Family of Blood
4. The Girl in the Fireplace
5. Vincent and the Doctor

Favorite companions
1. Donna Noble
She was the right match for the right Doctor at the right time. Donna was just what the Tenth Doctor needed at that point in time, and they were a great combination. Plus she went though a lot of character development.
2. Amy Pond
3. Jack Harkness
4. Rory Williams
5. River Song

Favorite Doctors
1. Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith)
Because Matt Smith managed to portray him as a wise old man, and a youthful, exuberant one. He was totally different to the Tenth Doctor, and wasn’t as brooding or melancholy about his past actions.
2. Tenth Doctor (David Tennant)
3. Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee)
4. Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)
5. Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy)

Why Doctor Who endures
