I was talking to Thiago the other day about how popular Dr.Who has become. And to think 7 years ago no one knew what it was.
I remember the first time Sadie and I sat down in 2005 and saw the 9th incarnation of the Dr. A complete new concept of a family show was introduced to our already extensive Anglophilic ways. We loved and hated it at the same time. Were petrified by some episodes, and extensively annoyed by the Daleks and all their episodes (to the point we just skipped them). It became something we did, just us two; our little escape from modern US society into British nerdom. And now after years 7 years of being back in the air, the show has a bigger fan base than ever before.
The thing with this show is, at least to me, that there’s no middle ground to it. Some episodes are brilliant and others are just plain out terrible! The same happens with the fandom, people either become obsessed with it or just hate it. Honestly, I have found it difficult to find anyone else in a middle ground, aside from Sadie and Thiago.
Either way, I have decided to do a Dr. Who Challenge. It’s meant for tumblr and daily posts, but I’m just going to do it at once.
Doctor Who 30 day challenge
Day 1 – Favorite Incarnation of the Doctor.
I guess it’s because he was my first Dr. that I like him the most, but it can’t be helped. His catch phrase was “Fantastic!” and wore leather. His self loathing “dafted old face” ways led to the humanization of the 10th incarnation. I wish he would have stayed longer, but for some reason the actor decided to quit after 1 season (T_T)
Day 2 – Favorite Companion.
Amy Pond. She the latest companion… well, kind of. Though she is pretty useless, like most of them are, she’s really cool. I love her back story, it definitely adds to her grace. She’s also Thiago’s favorite (not that he’s seen any of the others) because she’s a red head lol…
Day 3 – Favorite Villain/Monster/Alien/Baddie of the Week.
The Wheeping Angels…. They’re SUPER scary! The first time Sadie and I saw one of their episodes, late one rainy night, we were screaming!…. yeah… lol
Day 4 – Favorite Character.
Obligatory Mickey post! He’s one of the few companions/humans in the show that actually does something and isn’t completely useless. I was obsessed with him!! ♥♥♥♥
Day 5 – Favorite Guest Star.
Elisabeth Sladen, former Dr.Who 4th incarnation’s companion, made a special appearance It was nice to see someone from the old days, who even had her own spin-off come back, if only for a while.
Day 6 – Least Favorite Character.
Everyone’s OBSESSED with Rose. I, on the other hand, don’t understand why. She’s been THE most useless character in the whole show, since it was reestablished. I guess everyone likes the love story between her and the doctor, but I don’t…. meh….
Day 7 – Favorite Episode.
‘The Girl in the Fireplace’ is one of my favorite episodes. It has everything I like, history, Victorian era, masquerades and romance. Sophia Myles was a great pic for that episode, she did a great job.
Day 8 – Favorite Series/Season.
Series/Season 6, to the new folks or 25 for the old fans, is my favorite. It was really well written, it starts with intrigue and uncertainty. Continues with interesting new villains and ends in a cliff hanger. I’m glad Steven Moffat took over as head writer.
Day 9 – Least Favorite Episode.
Anything that has these annoying things named Daleks in it. Again, I’m REALLY glad Steven Moffat took over, he got rid of them! After 60 years of rivalry, it was about time.
Day 10 – Favorite Scene/Moment.
The episode where Rose gets trapped in another dimension. Yes, I dislike her character that much lol. But, in the other hand, she gets to live the life she always wanted, so I guess it works out for her.
Day 11 – Scene/Moment that makes you cry.
When 9 regenerated… (T_T)
Day 12 – Scene/Moment that makes you giggle.
Pretty much Amy and Rory’s wedding was amazing. 11 dances like a maniac and I love it! (^_^)
Day 13 – Favorite Era visited by The Doctor & Co.
Venice 1580, minus the whole plague thing….
Day 14 – Favorite Doctor Moment.
Whenever he’s heroic.
Day 15 – Favorite Rose Moment.
Day 16 – Favorite Martha Moment.
She’s totally underrated, and out the companions the only one that has saved the Dr.’s life repeated times. I like Dr. Martha Jones, she was smart enough to survive and smart enough to know when to leave him. I don’t have a favorite moment of hers, just pretty much everything she did was great.
Day 17 – Favorite Donna Moment.
After having been kidnapped by the doctor, from the alter, they met again years later. They were both investigating the same crime when their eyes met across a room filled with aliens trying to destroy the Earth, again… Best scene ever!
Day 18 – Favorite Amy Moment.
Amy having her baby is my favorite moment, however when she finds out who she becomes it’s amazing! Shed a tear there!
Day 19 – Favorite Ship.
The Racnoss Webstar from “The Runaway Bride” is pretty sweet!
Day 20 – Prettiest Scene
“Silence in the Library” was very pretty, even if it was all CG.
Day 21 – Favorite Location.
Cardiff, Wales. Love all the city views!
Day 22 – Something Silly.
Tenant being hisself… lol
Day 23 – Something Epic.
Dr meets HP = Epic!
Day 24 – Favorite Accessory of the Doctor’s.
Day 25 – Favorite TARDIS Team.
River’s awesome, Rory’s super cute, 11th doctor’s sweet and Amy’s super chill.
Day 26 – Scene/Moment that made you go ‘awww’.
Day 27 – Scene/Moment that made you go ‘argh’.
Rose….. Actually, the whole love story…
Day 28 – Favorite Series Arc.
I love the Ood. Yes, they look nasty and kind of weird with their tentacles and voice globe. They have an amazing, heart-breaking story. Poor friendly beings mutilated into slavery. (T_T)
Day 29 – Favorite Music/Song.
Obligatory Charlie post!! The music in the show’s not all that, so I chose my fave youtuber’s song! ♥♥♥♥
Day 30 – Why Do YOU Love Doctor Who?
What I like most about the doctor is the endless possibility of adventure!
