30DDC Day 8: Least Favourite Episode

Series 3 Episode 6: The Lazarus Experiment

On Earth, in present day London, The Doctor, Martha and her family attend a scientific demonstration by the aged Professor Lazarus. But when the experiment goes wrong, a horrific product of genetic manipulation is unleashed, leaving a trail of death in its mission to live indefinitely.

There were so many things annoying and forgettable in this episode: Lazarus, Martha’s mother, the entire script and the special effects. Personally, if you avoid watching it, you would lose nothing from the Doctor Who plot line. Same goes for Greenhorn (the writer)’s other episode for Doctor Who, The Doctor’s Daughter. Both episodes just zero value add to the series.

30DDC Day 6: Favourite Episode

2010 Christmas Special: “A Christmas Carol”

It was a toss up between this and “Vincent and the Doctor” (Series 5, Episode 10). But this one wins ’cause of the sheer number of times I watched this one. Plus there were so many perfect moments. And come on, Dumbledore as “Scrooge” is so perfect. And Katherine Jenkins as Abigail! She’s so beautiful.

Plus there are so many memorable quotes in this episode:

The Doctor: [Pointing to frozen Abigail Pettigrew] Who’s she?

Kazran Sardick: Nobody important.

The Doctor: Nobody important? Blimey, that’s amazing. You know that in nine hundred years of time and space and I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important before.

30DDC Day 5: Least Favourite Character

Mickey Smith

I don’t know why, but there was something about Mickey I just could not stand. He was like a walking doormat. He was always so sombre and like a wet blanket on all of Rose and the Doctor’s adventures. I loved it however when he ended up with Martha Jones. I think everyone shipped them together, including myself. But Mickey – nope, I preferred my Doctor Who episodes without him.

30DDC Day 4: Favourite Guest Star

James Corden as Craig

I decided to shift the order of the DDC up ’cause my favourite character is the same as my favourite companion, i.e. Rory Williams. I realised that the list didn’t have favourite Clara moment (’cause it’s a bit outdated), so I’ll add a day for her later.

Meanwhile, yes, Corden is my favourite guest appearance ’cause it created an unexplainably incredible bromance between the Doctor and Craig – on and off set.

30DDC Day 3: Favourite Villain/Monster/Alien/Baddie

Weeping Angels

Weeping Angels over every other villain. Hands down. I even second guessed myself before putting this up, ’cause that’s how much they scare the bejeebers out of me. I mean come on: “that which holds the image of an angel becomes itself an angel”. I practically put a whole bunch of them in gif form up there! Please tell me (from the past) whether any of them got you so I can remove this post, okay? Just engrave it into the stonehenge or have someone come send me a letter from the 70s or 80s.

For those who have no idea who they are, here is the wiki description of them:

Weeping Angels are an ancient race of aliens. Their usual mode of feeding is to send their victims back in time, which creates time energy to feed on. When they are not being observed by another being, they can move very quickly and silently, but when they are being observed, they become “quantum-locked”, occupying a single position in space and becoming stone. In this state, they are frozen and difficult to destroy. They cannot suppress this reaction. If two Weeping Angels were to look at each other at the same time, they would be trapped in stone form until an outside force moves them apart. To prevent this, they often cover their eyes while moving, which makes them look as though they are weeping.

30DDC Day 2: Favourite Companion

Rory Williams, The Last Centurion 

I think this was an easy one. Rory is definitely my favourite companion. He is completely underrated by everyone around him, but he is the epitome of a good soul. Him guarding the Pandorica and waiting for his wife, Amy Pond, is the ultimate act of love. He also slowly grows into his own on his journey with the Doctor. He finds his place in the universe. He is used both as a comedic device and as an emotional crutch. I have yet to find a female companion who can compare to how lovely Rory Williams is/was.
