Bio not provided
Oh, that's the thing with written interviews, you can never be 100% sure that's what the person interviewed said. Journalists tend to twist the words just to sell the news more. So, my first reaction when I see an article about what a certain man/woman said is to be skeptical.
Regarding the level of attractiveness of the actors who played the Doctor I agree with the "not conventionally attractive" thing. None of the actors was handsome in the conventional way, but they were all charming! That's what makes them attractive.

The really small difference between Matt Smith and David Tennant truly show that they were both magnificent Doctors and they will not be easily forgotten! I feel the same way, I LOVE both of them equally! (though I'm slightly more fond of Ten). Brilliant Doctors, without doubt! In my top 3 (alongside Patrick Troughton's Doctor). I'm very curious (and impatient!) to see Capaldi in action. I wonder what changes I will need to make in my personal Doctors top.

@SherlockGenius Are you suggesting there can't be people that simply like Tennant's Doctor without being over obsessed fans?
The Pyramids of Mars in top 10? I gave up on that episode in the middle of it...Didn't like it at all, sorry. And I don't know why Rings of Akhaten is so hated, I quite liked that episode. One of my favourites from the not so amazing series 7. I still don't understand why Tom Baker is ranked so high. He's great and all, but if a classic Doctor should be the first, I definitely choose Patrick Troughton! He's just beyond brilliant! Btw, John Hurt is at the bottom? I know we don't know much of his Doctor...but he doesn't deserve this. He was maginificent!
Does someone know how many people voted on this poll? I'm curious.
Well, I don't know what are going to be the theories to explain why the Twelfth Doctor looks like Caecilius, but I would love a remaking of "Fires of Pompeii" from 12th's point of view. They can even explain why Amy Pond was dressed as a Soothsayer (probably in disguise and doing the important stuff) with a silly Eleven running around to explore the roman fashionware (together with Rory of course). We already have Ten and Donna there, so all we need is to see the scenes we didn't see the first time around :))
I think that would be a great idea for a 10th NewWho anniversary and very unusual. It might be fun :D

Silly BBC...Of course, RTD era and both Eccleston and (even more so) Tennant made Doctor Who very popular and more successful than ever was at that point. But as much as I loved Tennant (and I still love his Doctor), the thought that we could not have Matt Smith and his seasons makes me very sad! Each actor was perfectly cast and did exactly what it needed to be done in that particular moment. Congratulations RTD and congratulations Moffat! Russel T. Davies, you are a star for keeping this show alive even after you left!

The explanation is simple: the Doctor Who theme song is a fixed point in time. It must never be changed or universes and fandoms would simply collapse. We wouldn't want that, don't we?

4 months ago on Why I Love… Series 7
Well, I don't hate series 7, but it's definitely not my favourite. It had a lot of weak episodes in my opinion (7A is better though)...I recently caught Cold War on tv and oh my...it was worse than I remembered. I don't even want to ever watch again Nightmare in Silver or The Crimson Horror...I don't know why. They just left me with bad memories...
But that doesn't mean I hate it. Matt's performance was spectacular in each episode and I slowly became fond of Clara, but still...something was missing the whole series...Maybe I didn't like the mini blockbuster idea...or I don't know...Hope series 8 will be better :D The strongest series in my opinion are 4 and 5. Now those were just constantly brilliant!
I agree. Conventionally handsome means (at least for me) that perfect type of beauty with a symmetric face and perfect features. None of the actors that played (and will play :P) The Doctor look like that. But they are definitely attractive. Some more than others, of course this depends on each one's taste. It's all relative. I do think that all the actors that played the part have a lovely charisma that had a lot to do with their personalities and that's why they were so good. I remember seeing Tennant for the first time and he looked so weird and skinny, almost ugly. But as soon as I got to know him and his personality, he won my heart. Now I think of him as a very handsome man.
I think David, Matt and Paul are the most obvious type of attractive. Tennant was the lovely, charming bloke, Matt was the adorable and cute type and McGann has that sort of romantic charm, but all the other actors were charismatic in their own way. I can't wait to see Capaldi's Doctor, he's already a charming guy for me :D

Also, it seems that Tennant does not approve of that statement :)) Whoever chosed the photo for this article is brilliant :))
It's funny how all blame Rose for treating Mickey the way she treated him, for saving her father in Father's Day, for falling in love with the Doctor, for choosing the life of travels with the Doctor, instead of staying with her mom (that seemed to have already a happy -and wealthy- future with the parallel Pete) and with Mickey (a boy she cared about, but never really loved and even though Michey did love Rose, he knew they weren't meant to be together, it was just a teen relationship) living a life with no prospects in the parallel world or for being jealous of Sarah Jane (to be fair, if we consider the fact that the Doctor never fell in love before until Rose, then I'm sorry but Rose had every right to feel like that since she supposedly was the one that the Doctor really loved), but how many of us would have done exactly the same thing like her?
Now, be honest with yourself, don't be hypocritical. How many of us would have had that moment of weakness and try to save your father that you never get to know? How many of us (young girls) would have fallen in love with the Doctor-a charming man that takes you in so many wonderful places and shows you the universe? And don't be ridiculous, how many of us would have chose the life of travels with the Doctor(a man you also love and we all know for a 19 years old girl that is the most important thing in life) instead of staying with your mother and your ex boyfriend in a world where you didn't have anything else to do than go back working in a shop?
Why did everyone understand Sarah Jane's reaction in School Reunion, after the Doctor left her back on Earth ("You took me to the furthest reaches of the galaxy, you showed me supernovas, intergalactic battles and you just dropped me back on Earth. How could anything compare to that?") but don't understand Rose's choice of "never leaving him"? (and btw don't forget what Sarah Jane said to Rose: R:"What do I do? Do I stay with him? SJ: Yes. Some things are worth getting your heart broken for").
So yeah...I think Rose is more relatable than you think. Don't hate her, just try to undestand her. That's the thing with people, it's so hard for them to feel sympathy for someone, to just try and put themselves in somebody else's shoes for a second.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on A Bad Wolf or Just Plain Bad? Addressing Rose Criticisms
I sincerely THANK YOU for this great article! I love Rose so I didn't need to be convinced, but it makes me sad that such an important character of the show is so hated here (seriously, what's with this place? people around me, they all love Rose). She doesn't need to be everyone's favourite, but some recognition that she is pretty great wouldn't hurt.
Oh well...people are people. They always like to criticise and be mean (and no, I'm not reffering to those who are genuinely and politely expressing their opinion).
@Planet of the Deaf @matt_david_and_the_fez Ok, first of all, I was talking about Martha and the Doctor, not about "the ordinary girl". Secondly, he didn't act like a teenage boy. He wasn't obsessed, he just missed her companionship, her friendship, her care, her family. With Rose, he felt he belonged somewhere, he had a family, something to care about. Rose represented a touchstone in his life. Nine regenerated out of love for Rose, how do you think he will react after the Universe takes her away from him? Of course he will miss her and be completely devastated.
I respect your opinion, I just don't agree with it. Ten and Rose's love story wasn't soapy, in my eyes. It was just a romantic, tender relationship. Beautifully made :) But hey, that's just my opinion.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on RTD on Doctor Who Becoming “Too Soapy”
Unpopular opinion, but I think Martha is just as guily as The Doctor for the way their story developed. This is one of the complaints that RTD always gets and it bothers me.
I am one of those people that loved the RTD era! I'm not really into sci-fi things, so his version of the show captivated me. I loved the coziness and familiar feel that it had. The domestic things, the well-developed characters (I love Rose and I always will), the silliness, the humor, the human-orientated drama, the emotion. I loved everything about that era, even though I do admit there were also some poor-written and boring episodes. But I don't remember those. I only remember the brilliant ones and the great feeling of falling in love with this wonderful show! I feel incredibly lucky that I started with his series.
I think on this site you can express your opinion without being mean about it. So, for all the people that hate Rose and have an allergy just seeing her name, don't forget there also people who actually like Rose and would like such a spin-off. Let's be kind :)
5 months ago on Piper Up for Rose/Meta-Crisis Ten Spin-Off
I love Rose and I love Billie. I also happen to love David and Billie acting together. They have great on-screen chemistry.
BUT...I don't think a spin-off with Rose and Metacrisis Doctor would be interesting. If you want to see The Doctor and companion saving the world, you can watch a show called Doctor Who. You don't need another show that's basically the same...
That being said, I wouldn't say no to a minisode though. Actually, I wouldn't say no to a minisode with any of the former companions. Also, in the next years to come (not right now), I would love seeing Rose's character again. I loved her and I think she had a beautiful story that I will always be fond of. She was the one that introduced me in the world of Doctor Who and Billie was the perfect actress to portray her.
I liked that Moffat brought Billie back for the 50th, but not quite as Rose (well, for me Rose was definitely there. Her conscience through the conscience of the TARDIS, that developed the conscience of The Moment. Wibbly wobbly, but that's how it is for me)
I personally love this episode! I think it's a masterpiece. I like Russel's writing in general, but he really outdid himself with this episode. It has all the elements to be perfect: a little bit of comedy, an unique situation of real danger for The Doctor, scary monster, mistery, claustrophobic set, psychological drama and great supporting characters. If you add to these the exceptional acting and music, you get one of the most brilliant pieces of television I have ever seen.
Another thing I love about Midnight is that it's one of the few episodes that highlightes all the characteristics I love about The Doctor, like you said. Also it shows once again how important are the companions. He was all alone with a group of people that were ready to throw him out just to keep themselves safe. He could have died there and then, no regeneration at all.
5 months ago on Midnight in Perspective
Okay, okay. We all have episodes that we like more than others, we all voted for the episodes which really deserved to win, or just voted an episode out of pity, because even if it's a good episode, we knew it won't be as voted as others on the list.
But the most important thing about this amazing show that we still love, despite the years, despite the "bad" episodes, despite the constant changes of characters, actors and head writers is that:
Everybody wins, whovians! Just this once, everybody wins! No matter how many polls (though they are interesting and fun) we do, we can all agree that Doctor Who is something special that touched our hearts like no other show :)

@The MasterDoctor What do you mean, he was a jerk to Donna afterwards? I don't remember something like that...
5 months, 1 week ago on The Tenth Doctor: Five Favourites
Glad The Stolen Earth/Journey's End is on the list. I really don't understand the hate for these episodes. It's because all of his companions are brought back? Because Rose was back? (I don't understand the hate for Rose either...) It was an international Dalek attack across parallel dimensions, of course everyone who knew The Doctor will try to contact him. I love those episodes and I think it showed Ten's true heart more than any other episode.
Indeed Blink is not really a David Tennant story, but those few minutes are brilliant. I remember seeing this episode years ago, before I knew Doctor Who and his speech with his face and gestures stuck in my mind. He really stoles the show in those minutes.
I agree with all you said about Midnight! It was perfect! What can I say more...brilliant story and exceptional acting...well done, Mr. Tennant! I feel like Waters of Mars is another great story for Ten. And The Impossible Planet/The Satan's Pit...and Human Nature/Family of Blood...wow, he really has a lot of great episodes!
Happy Birthday to MY (always and forever favorite) Doctor and one of the loveliest human beings I know! Brilliant actor and brilliant man! His Doctor made me love Doctor Who in a way I didn't think I could love a tv show! You can dislike his Doctor, but I can't see a reason to dislike him as an actor or a person. He's just one of us, a true fan that lived his childhood dream of playing The Doctor!
Happy 43rd Birthday, David! Have a fantastic life! Allons-y!
