Fantasy Friday - An Ode to Doctor Who

Fantasy Friday – An Ode to Doctor Who

I kept hearing about and seeing Doctor Who everywhere. And it really looked like something I would enjoy – sci-fi, time travel, so when I finally got Netflix last year I watched Doctor Who. All six seasons. In about three weeks. I liked it so much that I couldn’t wait for season seven to come to Netflix, I had to buy it!

Doctor Who is amazing! It has quickly become one of my favorite shows of all time, right up there with Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Here are just a few of my favorites things about the show:

Favorite Doctor

Eleven. It took me a while to get use to Ten, because I had loved Nine so much, but the moment I met Eleven I knew I loved him. He was everything that I always thought The Doctor would be. He was fun and flirty, and had a childlike excitement about everything. But he also had a dark side. Matt Smith really was the young Doctor with an old soul. Plus, he thought bow ties were cool!

“We all change, when you think about it. We’re all different people all through our lives. And that’s okay, that’s good, you’ve got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.” – Eleven

Favorite Companion

Donna Noble. I loved Rose, and I didn’t think anyone could replace her, but then came Donna. And she was awesome! Donna is loud and opinionated and smart and funny. She didn’t want to date the Doctor. She wanted to be his friend and travel all of time and space with him. Donna was strong, independent, compassionate, and she always stood up for what she believed. She was The Doctor’s best mate, and the most important woman in the whole wide universe.

Favorite Monster

The Weeping Angels. I’m really not one to get super excited about any particular monster on Doctor Who, but The Weeping Angels always creep me out. It amazes me how they took something so ordinary and made it so scary.

Favorite Episode

I can’t choose! I love Blink, obviously. And all of season four because Donna Noble. And of course Matt Smith’s first episode, The Eleventh Hour. The Day of the Doctor because three Doctors at one time! Be still my heart! And of course I love Vincent and The Doctor, The Doctor’s Wife, Waters of Mars, Midnight, Girl in the Fireplace. There’s just so many! But that’s what makes it great!

Favorite Quotes

“In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important”

“When you wake up… I’ll be a story in your head. But that’s okay. We’re all stories, in the end… just make it a good one, eh? Because it was. It was the best.” – The Doctor

“You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world!”
— The Doctor
