Escape from the Planet of the Dead?

  CARMEN: Something is coming. Riding on the wind, and shining. DOCTOR: What is it? CARMEN: Death. Death is coming.   After stealing an ancient chalice from a London museum, Lady Christina de Souza slickly escapes by jumping on a #200 bus. Co-incidentally, the Doctor, who is tracking a worm-hole, boards just before the bus […]

Spreading the message of the Man who saves

At the end of series 3, we learn many important facts about the Doctor as he faces the maniacal Master and tackles his desire to rule the world. One thing we learn is that the Doctor chose his own name. Unlike the Master, who is bent only on dominating others (and chose a most appropriate […]

Give me a day like this one!

Some of the best Christopher Eccelston moments occur in this double episode from series 1, set in London’s World War 2 Blitz (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, series 1/9 &1/10).

Wilfred at the heart of coincidence: The end of time!

I had a grandad called Willfred. He was lots of silly fun. He let you mess up his hair, and punch him in the stomach, and laugh at his silly sayings and doings. But he would also give you lots of attention. There were endless games and unhurried walks on the beach. He would give […]

The name of the Doctor – such a promise!

Clara: Who’s that? Doctor: That’s me Clara: But I never saw that one… Doctor: I said he was me. I didn’t say he was the Doctor… The name I chose is the Doctor. The name you choose, is like a promise you make… He is my secret. John Hurt: What I did, I did without […]
