After reviewing Eccleston’s run as the 9th Doctor, we sat down to discuss the highlights and low-points of Series 1 of the Doctor Who revival.
Over the course of 13 episodes, we got to know Eccleston’s character, learned to appreciate and adore his idiosyncrasies, and marvel at his ingenuity and optimism in the face of adversity. But while we could spend a good chunk of time talking about how much we loved this scene and that, and how greatly we can sympathise with these characters and those, Series 1 of the Doctor Who revival also played host to a bunch of characters and plot points that – let’s be honest – are worthy of ridicule.
In this Bonus Retrospective on Christopher Eccleston’s run as the 9th Doctor, we decide for ourselves, what were the best moments, the worst moments, the best lines, the worst lines, and who were the best characters and the absolutely and unforgivably worst. And more! Want to know with whom/what we’d least like to go to bed, for example? Well, you’ll have to listen to this episode to find out.
Do you agree or disagree with anything we said in this episode? Or can you think of the best or worst of a category we didn’t bring up?
