Someone asked us who was our favourite Dr Who / companions, and I'm answering it here:
Mine was Matt Smith, he did it so well, and probably Clara, and Riversong rocks! I just felt the pilot wasn't good role modelling for children... all that food spitting, I dread to think the arguments parents had with their children after that, and the cleanups that were necessitated by it... monkey see, monkey do...
My husband's says, "6,7,9 and 11, and the tragedy of 6 is that all the stories he was in were crap unfortunately - and Donna Noble, and Evelyn."
Because I married a Dr Who fanatic, I see lots of episodes from different series. I did also catch the very first ever, "The Unearthly Child" - very good. Other vintage notables include the freaky shop dummy episodes ("The Spearhead from Space"), and "The Empty Child" about the gas mask child.
My favourite episode ever is "Blink" - the original stone angels episode written by Steven Moffat. I also really, really, really liked "The Day of the Doctor" and "The Time of the Doctor." I really think that the quality of the stories and costumes / sets / locations / special effects were fabulous particularly in the Matt Smith era.
Oh and I don't like Daleks, I think they're really fake and silly. Exterminate, my backside.
Dr Who Nerds, this space is for you!
