Doctor Who: Days 21-25

Did Day 20, might as well bring this puppy home.

Day 21: Favorite couple

In the old series, it was Ian and Barbara. I always hoped they ended up getting married after they left. Their interaction in The Romans as wonderful. For the new series, who else could it be but Amy and Rory, the first genuine married couple in the series?

Day 22 Favorite Friendship

This seems to be restating the favorite companion question. I’ll stick with Sarah Jane (old series) and Donna (new).

Day 23: Favorite spinoff

The only one I’ve really watched is Torchwood, which could be uneven. Sometimes is was really good and sometimes it was awful. Children of Earth was simply brilliant, one of the most brutal mini-series in sci-fi history.

Day 24: Favorite quote

From the old series: “The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views…which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.” — The Doctor, Face of Evil

From the new series?: “The universe is big, its vast and complicated, and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles. And that’s the theory. Nine hundred years, never seen one yet, but this would do me.” — The Doctor, The Pandorica Opens (and really, just pick a random page on a Moffat script and we’re there).

Day 25: Favorite Doctor catchphrase

I hate catch phrases. “Exterminate!” is the only one that ever really sent chills up my spine.
