My heart ran away with a mad man in a box; and he's held it ever since...
I am thrilled that Turn Left, Midnight, and Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways made it into the top 20. They're some of RTD's finest episodes :)
1 day ago on Your Top 20 TV Stories of the Decade
Actually, I voted for TDOTD because not only is it a bloomin' good special, but also because it's a wonderfully written script filled with some absolutely phenomenal performances from the main cast, mind-blowing moments that shocked me to the core and also set up the next 50 years for the show, amazing direction from Nick Hurran (who really needs to return), and for being a genuine blinder of an episode.
OK...more like a few seconds...
Give it a few minutes, I'm sure someone will pipe up XD
You and me both, sista!
FINALLY! The second page has loaded! :|
A truly amazing Top 20 episodes. And the Top 5 is certainly excellent! Congrats Moffat!
Thanks for these polls, DWTV. It's certainly been fun...for you mostly, I bet! All those tears! XD
Other way around for me :P
1 day, 3 hours ago on Why I Love Rose
The first part of AUC is incredible but it just goes downhill from there IMO...
Rose was my first ever episode. And it's one of my favourite episodes. I know some seem to dislike it, and I know it hasn't aged very well, but I think that only adds to the charm. It encapsulates everything the show is about, and is a perfect introduction to the show for the modern audience with real, relatable, human characters. Thanks for the article, Will. And thanks for reminding me why I adore this episode so much. :)
Agreed! It's amazing.

Damn it. -_-
1 day, 20 hours ago on Doctor Who’s Revival: 10 Years On
Very well said,
"But this programme has been more than just a show, but a best
friend, a constant companion speaking words of reassurance during the worst
times in my life. I am different because of New Who, and a better person, and
for that reason I love it more than words can say."
I'm completely with
you on this. When I first started watching this show I didn't have many friends
at all. I wasn't in the best place mentally and I was a really sad child. But
this show literally changed my life. Even when times were hard during high
school and there were moments when I wanted to do something so stupid and
reckless, the show gave the willpower and the drive to keep fighting. It gave
me a reason to keep going to see the next Saturday, and the next, and the next,
and the next. It made me confident in myself, more accepting more my own
sexuality. It even introduced me to some of the best friends I've ever had and
will stick with me for life. And of course, it led me to the greatest and most
caring Doctor Who fan-site on the internet. This is more than
just a show to me, and I know it's the same for you and other people on this
site as well :)
Reposting it here where it's on topic...but:
YAY!!!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY NEW WHO!!!
I cannot believe it's been 10 years...I was 11 years old, just beginning to leave Primary School and start High School...and now I'm 21, just about to graduate University and start my life as a proper adult...
It's been with me for half of my life O.O
WOAH! amazing banner on the main site, DWTV! :o
1 day, 20 hours ago on The Best Pre-Title Sequences of the Revival (Part 3)
I also adore the pre-title sequence for The Stolen Earth. It's just so epic! Not only is Sarah Jane back, but there's Luke, Jack, Ianto, Gwen, Martha, UNIT, Wilf, Sylvia, and then BAM! Rose appears out of nowhere, wielding a bad-ass gun. Then she looks to the sky and OMG!!! There's random planets in the sky!
"Right, now we're in trouble. It's only just beginning..."
Yeah, you're telling me Rose. I remember geeking out so hard at this scene, I was literally jumping around the living room in pure delight. Ahhh those were the days! XD
1 day, 21 hours ago on The Best Pre-Title Sequences of the Revival (Part 3)
Yep, yep, yep. I absolutely agree with number 1 here! People can say what they like about it. They can pick it apart for inconsistencies and whatnot, but I don't really care! It's awesome, and that's all that matters to me. It's a perfect tribute to the history of the show, and you have to hand it to Moffat and the production team for their sheer creativity in the formation of this scene. It's mind-blowing and still gives me chills to this day!
And thank you for the previous articles as well, I've really loved reading them! :)

This is an absolutely fantastic article, Connor! And a lovely tribute to a wonderful man and Doctor. Thanks for this :)
1 day, 22 hours ago on Why I Love The Second Doctor
This is a surprisingly easy decision. The Day of the Doctor, as I've said countless times in the past, is my all time favourite story in the history of the show. So my vote has to go with that.

And what a wonderful Doctor he was, too! So joyous and full of life, energy, passion! Happy Birthday to a great man and actor :)

Same :( they are some of my all time favourite episodes. I think it's a real travesty IMO.

Very easy choices tonight, for me!
- The Day of the Doctor
*than they would have been
...I hate typing comments on my phone :|
3 days, 23 hours ago on Revival Face-Off: Semi-Final #1
Pretty shocked that Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways was knocked out. I absolutely adore that story...
Ahh well, it makes the next choices a lot easier than they are would have been! My choices are:
- The Waters of Mars
- The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon
Intrigued to see who makes it into the grand final! :)
Another tough choice!
- The Eleventh Hour
- The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon
- The Day of the Doctor

An amazing edition of W&W! Love the art, especially The 9th Doctor! :D
5 days, 2 hours ago on Weird and Wonderful
After a long time of deliberating..I have gone with:
- Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways
Damn you DWTV, these polls were really tough :|

This is the easiest choice for me. The Day of the Doctor is my favourite episode of all time, so I have to go with that one.

Happy birthday, Freema! I absolutely love Martha, she is a fantastic companion and unfairly underrated by the fandom!
More ways to make us suffer, I gather? :|

*Flips table over*
DWTV....you are mean...so very mean...
I hate you -_-
Very intriguing news! With every piece of information we get I am increasingly excited for Series 9! :D
1 week, 1 day ago on Series 9: Episode 5 Filming Soon
It'd certainly bookend her character arc very nicely. We started with an echo that died saving the Doctor, and we'd end with the original version dying to save him, too. And we all know how Moffat likes his circular narrative structures ;)
1 week, 2 days ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #10
I've been firmly on the "Clara should not die" side for a long while now, since rumours of her exit in Series 8 first started appearing...but now I think that's the only satisfying exit the character can receive. And sacrificing herself for the best friend she loves dearly would certainly be a very powerful moment!
Like murder ... *dramatic music*
Nah, I'm kidding. I don't think they'll go THAT far...but certainly something extremely dark for the character in which there's not much chance of a return to how she once was...
Indeed! We know from Dark Water that Clara is willing to betray the Doctor in moments where she is losing control...could be interesting to push her even further than that...
So basically the more extreme version of what happened with Rose and the Doctor. That could be very interesting to see!
Ooo another tough choice, but I have to go with The Name of the Doctor. It's one of my favourite episodes! :D
Oooo tough choice! But, as much as I love A Good Man Goes to War, I have to vote for one of my favourite openers, and one of the best stories we've had: The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon.
1 week, 3 days ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #9
This is an easy choice for me. It has to be The Doctor's Wife!

*and are the pinnacle
1 week, 5 days ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #7
I mean, seriously...how do I choose between these episodes?!
In my humble opinion, these two episodes are some of the finest scripts that RTD has ever written, and the pinnacle of his era: a nail-biting, psychological thriller that reveals the darkness within humanity, and a beautiful exploration of Donna Noble, and what life would be like without the Doctor. They each contain some phenomenal acting, stunning direction, scrumptious visuals, and some chilling/spine-tingling music...
It's my own Sophie's Choice...I love both so much.
But...I have to go with one. And though it really pains me to do this...I have to go with the episode that I always go back to and watch again, and again, and again.
So my vote goes to Turn Left. DWTV, you are a cruel man.
*Hits head on desk repeatedly*
I cannot choose. You win, DWTV. You win...
Well that was disturbing...
