My recent adventures with Doctor Who
As I mentioned in previous posts, I am a new viewer of Doctor Who. During the past few months, I was able to spend quite a bit of time watching The Doctor’s adventures. This included some classic Doctor Who with the 3rd, 4th and 8th Doctors and of course the modern incarnations with the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors. I was even able to watch the 50th Anniversary ‘Day of The Doctor‘ special broadcast live on November 23, 2013.
I found the specials that aired the week of the 50th Anniversary on BBC America and the online mini episodes to be very enlightening for someone who has not been a part of the entire 50 years. These gave me a taste of the classic Doctor Who episodes, without having to watch them all!
The 4th, 8th, 9th and the 11th are all very good, but it was the 3rd and the 10th that I identified with the most.
The 3rd because he was limited to being ‘Earthbound’ and he loved, ‘Bessie‘, his automobile!
The 10th because David Tennant‘s performance and the writers made me care what happened to him and his companions.
I am currently re-watching the modern Doctor Who episodes with my husband. Therefore, I will have more to say in upcoming posts.
