To this day that may be my favorite Doctor Who episode.
As much as I hated Matt Smith’s Dr...this was an awesome episode.
A shame they are so inconsistent with the writing.
Which doctors do you prefer to 11? I started with 9, which I liked, I also liked Rose, which I know many don't, then 10 came along and 10 was the Doctor for me. When 11 came along, I did not like him, it took awhile but I grew to like 11 almost as much as 10 and I missed him when 12 came along. I appreciate 12 but there is just something amiss that I put him behind 9, 10, and 11. Personality, plot, whatever it is. 13, I don't feel I can ever get a real good shake on. I followed Tennant to Broad Church and so knew Jodie Whitaker before she became 13 and was over the top excited for her to be 13 so I know it isn't anything inherent with her but her Doctor is a bit to scatterbrained, a bit too I don't know. I know I prefer Doctors who can be goofy, and witty, but also stern, perhaps even a touch of meanness. She doesn't really have any of that and I've really had enough of her being along for the ride while her three companions seem to drive the show. At least can we have 50/50 between the Doctor and one companion (I'm thinking of Dr. Clara here).
I know you didn't ask me the question, but I'm bored so I'll answer for myself anyway,
4 is the one I remember watching with my dad, so he has some fond memories in my brain and the only previous Doctor I know well.
9 was fine, I liked him a lot, and I liked the chemistry between him and Rose, but I wish we got to know him more.
10 is far and above my favorite, I liked him the moment 9 changed into him. Him and Rose, him and the lady in the fireplace, him and a few others. Not a huge fan of Donna, so I wasn't happy when she was brought in. After a second viewing that I could binge, she's a little more ok. Sadly Martha didn't get a fair shake because she was a rebound companion and they made it weird, but I liked her more than Donna.
11 had the weird haircut and tiny, almost non existent eyebrows, so he was a bit of a shock after 10. After half a season though I really liked his weirdness and energy, so he's probably my favorite after 10. Amy is my favorite companion and Rory wasn't bad either. Clara and 11 were ok, I didn't dislike her but after Amy she was a tough act to follow.
12 was not fun to watch for probably the first half of his first season, as he was brash and rude and he and Clara did NOT have good chemistry at all in my book. He was so angry and played dumb when it came to Clara and Danny's relationship so it was a little annoying. After awhile though I really liked him and he's my favorite after 10 and 11, and even Danny grew on me, just to get a crappy end. Missy was ok, not a huge fan, I like the actress more on Sabrina than I did as The Mistress.
13 is ok, I have no issues with her being female, but I often find myself hearing 10 or 11 talking when she says or does things I think they would do similar. I wish the writing was better and that she had better lines, I feel like they fall flat and it's not her fault. I also don't mind the 3 companions that much, but I think with being 3 none of them get any really good screen time and the current season Graham keeps saying really dumb things, that makes me dislike him a bit. I think any of them would be fine with 13 if it was just them, but together they are kind of annoying, and it's mostly because of the writing. The Master was ok, I knew him from Iron Fist, so that was weird, but he's ok and I hope if and when he returns it's more interesting than his first appearance. VERY happy Jack made a return, I've been waiting for him or a past companion to come back since 12, and Jack was one of my top favorites that needed a return. Look forward to seeing what happens before the season ends, which is always too fast.
Ok, I'm done,
