Christopher Eccleston will not be ignored!!!! All shall know the amazingness of the 9th Doctor!
I'm just a guy who likes a lot of stuff and just as recently as last year joined the ranks of the Whovians. Here I mostly post NuWho stuff, but I do have a separate blog for Classic Who.

Food for thought on my favorite Doctor.  It annoys the hell out of me how much people overrate and overhype Four, Ten, and Eleven.  People forget how awesome all of the other doctors are!!!!!!  I mean, look at this and really let it sink in.  Let it sink in how much of a killer Eleven is, despite being the “peaceful Doctor.”  Nine could never pull the trigger, not even on the last surviving Dalek.  
Hell, at least Ten remembered how many children were killed in the Time War.   Can’t say the same for Eleven…

endless list of favourite characters: martha jones

"I spent a lot of time with you thinking I was second best, but you know what? I am good."

Gotta be honest: Martha is my favorite NuWho companion now. As I’ve re-watched NuWho and delved deep into Classic Who, I’ve stripped away the nostalgia and seen the faults in Rose’s character. She’s Doctor Who’s version of the Overprotective Girlfriend. She’s very selfless and compassionate, but at many times can be very selfish in her actions and motives. That doesn’t make her a bad character, just one less appealing and harder for me to identify with or want to emulate. Martha Jones, on the other hand, is basically one of the strongest women in DW history and she completely got the shaft because 10 kept going “Oh, Rose would know what to do…” Martha Jones is, in many ways, even more capable than Rose, and her shining moment didn’t involve her gaining strength from an external force. She walked the earth and spread the word about the Doctor. In a way, the victory over the Master wasn’t the Doctor’s: it was Martha’s.
I will still love Rose to death, as I still think she’s a great character and companion who did a lot for the Doctor. But whenever she comes up in a conversation about the best DW companion, just remember that I will have a few words to say about the strong willed, caring and compassionate, and amazing Martha Jones (as well as Ace and Sarah Jane).

so last night I spent an hour trying to find 9's full "who says you're not important" line from father's day because I saw a post mentioning 11 saying "900 years and I've never met someone who wasn't important" (as an explanation why 11 was their favorite doctor) and I had convinced myself (to the point of hearing it in 9's voice) that he had said it only to realize I was wrong and feel like an idiot. however I do feel the meaning was the same and it still shows how much he cares and all

YES, but alright, can we look at the context for both these quotes please?

With Nine, he was saying it to a young bride and her groom, who were completely, thoroughly ordinary…that’s what made them important.

THE DOCTOR:
(genuinely shocked)
Who said you’re not important? I’ve travelled to all sorts of places. Done things you couldn’t even imagine,  but… you two… street corner. Two in the morning. Getting a taxi home. I’ve never had a life like that.

Fast forward to the episode that is also being mentioned, A Christmas Carol, when he says this directly in reference to THE GIRL FROZEN IN A CRYOGENIC CHAMBER, in the sitting room of the dude controlling the weather.

This is not an ordinary situation, and probably not an ordinary person.  Other than telling the kid to ‘keep the faith’ about Father Christmas, he doesn’t really give a damn about anyone except the pretty blonde who’s mysteriously frozen in ice.

That’s not the same thing.  At all.  Moffat may have thought he was saying the same thing, but he also thought that it was okay for the Doctor to tell a dying girl that he remembers everyone, only to ask who she was.  He’s not the best judge of realistic emotions, or the Doctor’s character.

Partially sums up why I’m not a huge fan of 11.

No, friendship is NOT about “supporting your friends even when you know they’re wrong.”

That’s not friendship. That’s being an enabler. That’s being an accomplice.

Friendship is loving someone enough to tell them to stop being a goddamn idiot before they ruin their lives.

Nine Years of the Ninth Doctor: Dalek

thoughts-from-alex:

It’s a mutation. The Dalek race was genetically engineered. Every single emotion was removed except hate.

It’s the Daleks!

The Daleks have been a staple of Doctor Who since day one. (Or week six, if you like, making it oddly appropriate that it’s the sixth episode of the new series which features the Daleks). They’re iconic. They’re right up there with the TARDIS and Tom Baker’s scarf - in fact, they’re probably above them. No, they are above them. The Daleks have a history. (You could even say they have a legacy)

So bringing them back like this is kind of a big thing. (It’s a massive thing). Hell of a lot riding on this one, wasn’t there?

I love every episode from Christopher Eccleston’s tenure, but this is the best episode by far. I might even vouch for it being the best episode in the new series. Its up there with Blink.
