I thought for a moment she was going to be a new companion. Glad she's got a starring role. You may have seen her in Game of Thrones but if you haven't seen to short film Cyberbully - check it out.

Patrick Troughton, like all the actors who have played the role lights up the screen. He's one of those who is especially delightful to watch though. The second Doctor shows a fantastic curiosity, moral sensibility and over all he's nice. The ultimate nice Doctor.

Yay! Stats! Surprised that every episode got at least one 10/10. It's great. I always try to like episodes. I know I don't have to like them all but I feel my enjoyment of the series would be greatly improved if I tried to see something good in every story.

@Gustaff @Alleigh member of P.O.N.D.S When I rank stories it tends to be more like a categorisation and so the stories ranked as 10 are just the 'best of ' and not necessarily perfect. I've given 29 stories in total, classic and new, a 10. Not all of them have those qualities.

Okay, looking at the much maligned stories of the revival, I come to realise how good revived Who is. I would gladly watch any of those episodes over some of the low ranking stories of Classic Who. Seriously The Twin Dilemma vs Fear Her - Fear Her all the way.


Not hating on Classic Who. In fact I prefer the Classic era but my point is that since 2005 Doctor Who has had a dynamic quality to the way it's made.

That "turn of the earth" speech. My word, that was incredible. I loved the aura of mystery. This unknown man with no name saves an ordinary girl in an ordinary city from hostile aliens and after giving this brilliant and eerie speech tells her "forget me".

@Polyphase I love that scene from The Moonbase where the Doctor is sneaking around collecting samples while getting in everyone's way. It highlights how sweet Troughton's Doctor could be.

OMG 10 YEARS!!!   I was about to start secondary school, now I'm getting ready for a post-graduation degree. It's insane. Watching that trailer gives me chills. I kind of want it to be 2005 again so that I can feel like an excited 12yr old kid.


So much love for Doctor Who. It's like an escape from reality. It's like a constant companion. Always there. Whatever is happening in real life I can match it up to what was happening in Doctor Who at the time.


Got The Seeds of Doom on DVD to-day. Read a bit of The Ice Warriors book. Meeting some Whovians on Saturday. But 10 years ago I would have been doing none of this. I had no idea that I was about to embark upon... THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME.

Am I allowed to just rant about how much I love The Talons of Weng-Chiang?


The Talons of Weng-Chiang is my favourite Doctor Who story ever! It's so dark and creepy yet comedic in place. It's a period piece with a brilliant story and it has a tacky badly made giant rat (that's a good thing by the way and anyone who disagrees can go watch the dino fight scenes from Invasion of the Dinosaurs on a constant loop until they understand). It gets the Victorian era so very right. The Peking homunculus is sooo sinister and Jago and Litefoot are the best one-off duo (not including their BFinish adventures obvs) in Who history.


It's an amazing work of fiction and I love it, love it, love it.

The Day of the Doctor. Brilliant, just amazing. I have re-watched it so may times. November 2013 was great. On first broadcast, I watched The Day of the Doctor in a lecture theatre. With lots of fans. I brought jelly babies and  Cyberman action figure with me. I was not let down at all.

@The Cosmic Dodo It's not very Doctor Who or very enjoyable. It gets undone by its own ambitions and scale. It serves merely as part of the story arc. It tries to come across as big bad and tough needlessly and re-enforces the idea of The Doctor as a legend or myth, which the New Series has become way too reliant on. The plot threads and twists make it seem like part of a melodramatic opera. It also features River Song.

Blink for me. I've never been an absolute adorer of it. It's never held a special place for me. It is, however, one of those episodes that I cannot deny is absolutely brilliant. Silence in the Library/ Forest of the Dead is incredible but I don't think it holds a candle to Blink.


Replace it with Midnight on the other hand and you would have yourself a jolly good contest.
