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). Rose Tyler: Look at you, beaming away like you’re Father Christmas! The Doctor: Who says I’m not?. . . red-bicycle-when-you-were-twelve? Rose Tyler: What? But the […]
