Today is Doctor Who Day! Also known as TARDIS Day, which celebrates the day Doctor Who first aired on the BBC, back in 1963. Since Doctor Who is one of my favourite TV shows, I wanted to mark the occasion on my blog in someway and thought what better than answering The Doctor Who tag?
I first stumbled upon The Doctor Who tag on Cassie’s blog Zombie Goddess Beauty (you can read her answers here), and as a lover of all things ‘Whovian’ I couldn’t wait to answer the questions for myself.
So without further ado…
The Doctor Who tag
1.) Who is your Favorite Doctor?
I grew up watching Sylvester McCoy as a kid so he’s always been my favourite Doctor. However if we’re solely talking about the new series, it has to be David Tennant.
2.) Who is your favorite Companion?
Amy and Rory had such a great dynamic with the doctor that it has to be them.
3.) Who is your favorite recurring villain? (Ex: Daleks, Angels, Cybermen, ect.)
It has to be the Daleks for me. I always get a wave of childhood excitement when they appear in an episode.
4.) What is your favorite episode? (Or episodes, so many 2 parters!)
There have been so many great episodes over the years from The Empty Child to End of Days and The Impossible Astronaut. But for me it has to be the 50th anniversary episode. The 10th and 11th Doctors worked so well together on screen, and I loved the introduction of John Hurt’s War Doctor.
5.) Where did you start watching? (The new series starting with 9 or the original series with Doctors 1-8.)
I watched Sylvestor McCoy’s episodes as the Doctor first when I was little, along with a handful of Tom Baker ones.
6.) How long have you been watching Doctor Who?
Since the early 90s.
What would you call the new series? A continuation or a reboot? (series
meaning all of the new episodes as a whole starting with 9 to now.)
Definitely a continuation.
8.) How would you explain Doctor Who to someone who has never seen an episode?
It’s about a mad man in a blue police box, a time traveller from the ancient planet of Gallifrey. He can go anywhere in time and space but spends a lot of his time in our timeline on our planet. Oh, and he’s also an alien.
9.) If you met The Doctor and he said he would take you anywhere in time and space, where would you want to go first?
Honestly? I’d want to go to Skaro (the Dalek home world) or to help the Doctor find Gallifrey.
10.) Bowties or Converse?
12.) What do you think of Peter as the new Doctor?
It took me a while to get used to Peter as the new Doctor but I ended up loving him, especially his storylines with Clara and River. I was sad when he regenerated but have enjoyed seeing what Jodie has brought to the character so far.
