I thought I should write a post about this season before I see Season Two and Tennant’s version of The Doctor; besides I have a few weeks wait for Kayla to return from Washington to begin that season anyway.
Let me sum up my feelings as quickly as possible right here at the beginning. I really like Dr Who, I’m really excited to see the rest of the seasons, I loved Season One, which no one ever talks about, and I absolutely adored Eccleston’s Doctor, Number Nine.
The first episode, “Rose”, was one of the most bizarre forty five minutes of my life. Kayla and I got to the end of that show and she started clapping and I was just sitting there with my jaw slacked open and I asked, “What the heck did we just watch?” It was the weirdest…. thing ever. We closed my laptop and moved on to do other things. Thirty minutes later I threw my hands up and I put the disc back in my computer and I said, “We gotta watch that next episode right now, Kayla! I need to see more.”
Those ‘what the heck was that but I loved it’ moments are one of the best.
So, we watched the second episode, and it just added to that thrilling, nearly addictive feeling that this was bizarre but absolutely amazing. Rose was beautiful and so realistic and clever in her own way and Number Nine; I still wonder how people just forget or can even skip him. Sarcastic and serious with the goofiest smile; I still absolutely love him. He was brilliant.
You, of course, need to make room for the out-dated effects or slightly cheesy moments; I and my sister fully expected these and so we weren’t thrown by them when they popped up. We know better effects are ahead of us!
Several of my favorite episodes (that I can remember, some of them blend together to me) are Father’s Day, The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances. End of the World was also a fun one.
Oh, for the record, I do not find the Dalek’s annoying. It was actually very exciting to see them for the first time and in a weird sense their kinda cute, like strange, huge pepper shakers. lol.
“EX-TER-MIN-ATE! EX-TER-MIN-ATE! EX-TER-MIN-ATE!”
I’m really excited to move on in the series as soon as Kayla comes home and we get Netflix. I’m looking forward to seeing Tennant’s Doctor and if he lives up to all the hype. 🙂
Until then, live safely, fellow Whovians! Don’t create any paradoxes!
