The Doctor Who Tag.

Today is the the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who. We have my favourite Doctor and companion returning for a few specials and then we get the new Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa which I have only ever seen on the show Sex Education. I really can't imagine him as the Doctor.

Last year Ellie started Doctor Who and we watched plenty of episodes together which made me so happy. All of my family like Doctor Who but they are not really that into like Ellie and I are.

I found this tag ages ago and now seems like a good time to share.

The Tardis

Who is your favourite Doctor?
David Tennant closely followed by Matt Smith. Ellie put off watching the Peter Capaldi episodes for ages as she thinks he's a right grump. She's not wrong, he was probably my least favourite Doctor.

Who is your favourite Companion?
I would have to say Donna Noble! She was just brilliant and had so many great episodes. Ellie can't decide between Rose and Captain Jack. I am a fan of Captain Jack, he always makes me chuckle. 

Who is your favourite recurring villain? (Ex: Daleks, Angels, Cybermen, ect.)
Ohh! It is a hard call for me between the Daleks and the Weeping Angles. I would have to say the scariest for me are the Angels but the Dalaks are brilliant too.

What is your favourite episode? (Or episodes, so many 2 parters!)
I love the run of episodes in Series 4 with David Tennant and Catherine Tate. Silence in the Library, Forest of the Dead, Midnight, Turn Left, The Stolen Earth and Journeys End. Those episodes have everything! Riversong, drama, scary bits, one off episodes which don't relate to the story and a few that do. Ellie was a massive fan of Army of Ghosts and Doomsday! They had everything at the time too, Dalaks, Cybermen, drama, Rose and deaths, well sort of.

When did you start watching Doctor Who? 
I started with the newer series, the one's with Christopher Eccleston and I was so late getting into that. I think I only got into it when the tenth Doctor took over. I was poorly looking for something to watch and they were being shown on BBC Three or something like that.

How would you explain Doctor Who to someone who has never seen an episode?
It’s about a mad person/alien in a blue police box travelling through time saving the earth and other planets from bad people/aliens.

If you met The Doctor and he said he would take you anywhere in time and space, where would you want to go first?
I’d want to go to Skaro, the Dalek home world to see where it all started. Ideally we would go back in time to see how's and why's of the Time War.

What is your favorite quote from the show?
Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you could believe. Don't turn your back, don't look away, and don't blink! If I hear that I don't blink! 

Did you cry more watching Doomsday or The Angels Take Manhattan? 
Doomsday! I really did love Rose and it was the first companion that I had seen a Doctor lose. I was never a fan of Amy and Rory. I did like some of their episodes but I just felt a bit meh about them.

After watching a certain Doctor Who episode, did you summon up the courage to try fish sticks and custard? 
I was tempted but no, I didn't. Ellie wanted to try them and so far I have talked her out of the idea.

Who are some of your favorite guest stars in the series?
Kylie Minogue in the Voyage of the Damned and John Simm was brilliant as the Master. He was so unhinged that he was just amazing!

Are you a Doctor Who fan?

  1. We usually watch Dr Who when our oldest comes over to visit. They're fun to watch but I sometimes get confused with the plot so Luke will stop the show and explain it. So much goes on in one show! I like Peter Capaldi because he was on The Vicar of Dibley Christmas special.
