All The Doctors!
Over the weekend the BBC celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who with the latest special, The Day Of The Doctor. There was a lot to like about it, and I thought this bit from the closing credits, listing all of the actors that have played The Doctor, was an especially nice touch. It prompted me to do the quick math and decide on my own personal ranking of the various Doctors. It looks like this.
9 – 2 – 10 – 4 – 0 – 5 – 11 – 3 – 7 – 1 – 6 – 8
I would also add that the fact that The Moment chose Rose for its interface is irrefutable proof that Rose is, in fact, the best companion ever. But if you get me headed down that particular rabbit hole, the ranting may never end. As a final note, along with the new special there was a new TV movie called An Adventure In Space And Time. It tells the story of the creation of the show and it is fantastic. Be sure to check the BBC Doctor Who site for lots of fun background bits to the whole thing.
Which New Doctor Who Companion Are You?
We are now just days away from the BBC’s big international simulcast of “The Day Of The Doctor“. In case you don’t count yourself a Whovian, and haven’t had that on your calendar for months, that is a special event episode of Doctor Who to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the show. It’s such a big deal that it will be shown all over the world at the same time. So, with that in mind, here’s a little bit of internet shenanigans to start your Wednesday. BuzzFeed has an online quiz that will reveal which of the new Doctor Who companions you are most like. As you can see above, I got Rose.
