2 weeks, 2 days ago on Doctor Who Series 8 TV Launch Trailer
Despite being a massive fan of The Sarah Jane Adventures, I had never heard of Doctor Who. In the SJA episode The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, I met the Doctor for the first time. This marvellous, mad man who travelled in blue box... who was he? And then, one Christmas day, I caught the end of A Christmas Carol- the part where Abigail is repeatedly taken out of storage. What was this show? I had idea what was happening but, in that instant, Doctor Who captured my imagination. It was so crazy and impossible that I adored it immediately. And so began my love affair with the greatest show in the Universe.

@The Outer Space K9 I couldn't agree more. Doctor Who is the beacon of light and hope that has helped me through the darkness. It really has saved me. Not many TV shows can say that.
So excited!!! Can't wait for August... :)

Fantastic article! Happy birthday to the wonderful Catherine Tate! I love Catherine, and Donna is one of my favourite companions. My favourite Donna moments are mostly from Partners in Crime, which is just hilarious. Donna was the best thing to happen to the Tenth Doctor. Forget Rose and Martha, Donna was just brilliant!

@Antee991166 Sorry to correct, but the Daleks first say "Exterminate!" in the second serial, The Daleks, in episode 4 :)

Great article! I loved this story, it is definitely one of my favourites from Hartnell's era. The 'It is forbidden to dump bodies into the river' sign set the tone as dark and mysterious, but the most iconic image of the episode is the Daleks emerging from the Thames, which is a simply incredible moment. The farewell to Susan was beautiful. I agree that the Slyther was not needed, and that the story was far longer than it needed to be, but a brilliant story all the same :)
Wow, the violinist was incredible! The pictures were amazing. Love Agents of SHIELD too :)

Wonderful article! Clara is competing with Pond for favourite new companion at the moment. I especially loved the beginning and ending of Name of the Doctor when she jumped into the Doctor's timestream and we see her with the different Doctors... what a perfect moment, when you suddenly understand how the Impossible Girl is possible and what a beautiful character she really is. Happy birthday, Jenna Coleman, looking forward to the return of Souffle girl soon :)

How can Turn Left get 3/10? It was was amazing and emotional and it showed another side of Donna, where she was scared and desperate, completely contrasting her usually jolly, joking self. I loved the apocalyptic theme of this episode, although I felt the return of Rose was unnecessary and tried to take away from Donna's beautiful performance, but nevertheless this episode was incredible and reduced me to tears. I would give it 9/10, deducting one point for the awful beginning and Rose.

Partners in Crime 4/10?? What?! It was the funniest episode of DW ever (well, maybe a draw with Day of the Doctor...)
RIP Jack and my condolences to his friends and family. This is so awful to hear about such a young boy. Thank you, Matt Smith, for being so kind and considerate.

@TheCapaldiMasterplan @Whovian I'm liking it! A Melody Malone series would be the definition of awesome :)
3 months ago on Piper Up for Rose/Meta-Crisis Ten Spin-Off
Please bring back the Adipose! I don't know how or why, but please! They are too cute for words... Aside from the walking fat, I agree that the Sycorax have so much potential. The Krillitanes could also be brought back, considering that improvements in CGI could make them look a lot better. Also, since they are in control of their own evolution, they could look completely different, and therefore be an interesting story development...
3 months ago on 5 New Who Monsters in Need of a Return
Watching SJA, I found the Trickster completely terrifying. It would be a fantastic nod to the programme to feature this villain in a future episode (perhaps as well as the Judoon!) The Tenth Doctor was in The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, in which the villain was the Trickster, so if there ever is a spin-off including the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor, this would be a fine choice :)
I'm not a Rose fan and I didn't think there was any real chemistry between Rose and Ten. I'm desperate for a good-quality spin-off to fill the many months without new episodes... just not this. Bring back Donna or Amy (+ Rory) and then I'll be happy ;)
Thank you for this great article. You have made me appreciate the episode so much more. I never hated the episode, but it wasn't a favourite of mine, but now you have shown me how significant an episode this really is. I was just going to say it was like Lord of the Flies when I read your conclusion, so I'll just say I completely agree with you :)

I adored The Doctor's Wife, it is one of my absolute favourite episodes. I don't think there should be a comeback because the ending of the episode was absolutely perfect and so beautiful, and another episode could not possibly excel it. The Doctor's Wife should be left alone to live in the hearts of the Doctor, the TARDIS and the fans...

@JamesStroud @Whovian I did vote for other non-Smith episodes (Partners in Crime, Blink etc.), but I did mainly vote for Smith because I prefer Moffat's style to RTD, and I only started watching when Smith became the Doctor. I am also not a huge fan of Rose, Mickey or Martha as companions, and I much prefer the more complex arcs with River and Amy, although I think Donna is amazing. Don't get me wrong, I love every series, but Smith's episodes have stood out to me more and he is by far my favourite Doctor. Who is yours?

@The Eternal Do you know if there are going to be any official celebrations or recognition of 10 years since the revival? Thanks :)
This just made my day! To see Matt Smith in a future anniversary (especially if David Tennant returned as well) would be magical :D
@PK-S @epicduda Or like in Shelock when they start 'F-' and then Watson says, 'Cough!' It would be great!

My dream run: 1) Partners in Crime/The Impossible Astronaut (I really can't decide between them), 2) Day of the Moon, 3) Gridlock, 4) The Doctor's Wife, 5) The Angels Take Manhattan, 6) The Bells of Saint John, 7) A Good Man Goes to War, 8) Let's Kill Hitler, 9) The Family of Blood, 10) Blink, 11) Turn Left, 12) The Pandorica Opens, 13) The Name of the Doctor. So... Series 1: 0, Series 2: 0, Series 3: 3, Series 4: 2, Series 5: 1, Series 6: 5, Series 7: 3, although my least favourite companion is Martha and my favourites are Donna, Amy and Rory. And, obviously, my #1 special is Day of the Doctor :)
@JamesStroud @Whovian Let's Kill Hitler (just love the Teselecta), The Bells of Saint John and Gridlock (non-Matt Smith!) What are your opinions? :)
Both Name of the Doctor and Day of the Doctor were phenomenal, but I guess if I had to choose one to take the prize, I would choose Day of the Doctor, because it would be an amazing achievement to finish off the 50th anniversary celebrations :)
3 months, 1 week ago on Moffat Battles The Five(ish) Doctors Again
Great article! I loved the idea of the episode, but the CGI and Martha's (in my opinion) annoying family and their arguments were a little cringe-worthy. However, I still love the storyline and the interaction between the Doctor and Lazarus. Overall, to me it feels like an average episode- huge potential, but it didn't quite pull it off. Oh, and to answer your question, I completely agree with the Doctor- immortality is a curse, and I certainly wouldn't want to live forever. To quote the Doctor, "This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper"...

@dedpubserv @Whovian I would also add Love & Monsters to the 'out and out bad episode' list, but I agree that there are very few episodes which were not a joy to watch :)

Elisabeth Sladen was a fantastic and beautiful woman and her death broke the hearts of millions. Her Sarah Jane Adventures was amazing programme and I am so grateful for the programme introducing me to the world of Doctor Who. RIP, Elisabeth Sladen, I will remember you forever x

Very pleased with the results, especially to see Turn Left get the credit it deserves (being the only Doctor Who episode except The Angels Take Manhattan to make me cry!) I would change The Empty Child to The Family of Blood, but it's no surprise to see it voted for here :)
What about Partners in Crime, Turn Left and Human Nature/The Family of Blood? I thought these were all fantastic episodes, perhaps with The Girl in the Fireplace and Gridlock (which was just awesome!) also in the top 5, although Blink is definitely deserving of a place... Okay, so I can only give a top 6... I wasn't a huge fan of Midnight, despite it featuring the wonderful Colin Morgan :)
3 months, 1 week ago on The Tenth Doctor: Five Favourites
What fantastic episodes! I am so pleased. Lots of people think the Doctor's Wife is overrated, but I disagree- it's beautiful and sad and just amazing... Lots of Matt Smith episodes here, which makes me very happy! I wouldn't have chosen Silence in the Library or Dalek, but overall, pretty good. Although I didn't vote for School Reunion due to the Krillitanes being (in my opinion) a weak threat, but I absolutely adored the return of Sarah Jane Smith! I think Partners in Crime is a classic marmite episode, but I am a huge fan :)
Happy birthday to the legend who is David Tennant! Thank you for many years of laughter, excitement and timey-wimey adventures <3

This just broke my heart... The Sarah Jane Adventures are so special to me because before I started watching it, I had never even heard of Doctor Who (yes, really!)

What is your single favourite episode of all time? :)
I only realised by completing this poll just how much I LOVE Series 6. I didn't vote for series 1 or 2 at all, I voted only for Gridlock in series 3, and the rest, with the exception of the truly amazing Partners in Crime of Series 4, were Matt Smith episodes... Thank you, Moffat!
@TheSoundofDrums You have good taste! The only one I completely disagree with is A Town Called Mercy, which seems to be very popular here... ;)
