Trivia

Future Companion and Doctor Karen Gillan and Peter Capaldi appeared in Doctor Who: The Fires of Pompeii (2008), in different roles. Gillan as a Soothsayer, and Capaldi as Caecilius. The Soothsayer had not been considered by Steven Moffat to be an ancestor of Amy Pond, and in Doctor Who: Deep Breath (2014), when the Twelfth Doctor sees himself in the mirror, he remembers Caecilius, and remarks that he had seen that face before. Both Scottish cast members would appear together again in Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor (2013), in which Gillan made a cameo as Amy Pond, and Capaldi appeared in the final seconds as the newly regenerated Twelfth Doctor.

Crazy Credits

During the first season, Christopher Eccleston is credited as "Doctor Who", as set in the Classic Series. Beginning with the second season - reportedly at the behest of the show's new star, David Tennant - the credit has been changed to read "The Doctor". See more »

Alternate Versions

When shown on Disney XD, some censorship is performed: spoken instances of the word "hell" are muted and the printed word is blurred when visible in its entirety, but not when it is partially obscured. See more »

Time passes by so quickly.
27 October 2015 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I cannot believe it's been back on our screens for ten years, it seems like only yesterday the show returned with Rose.

What I've loved so much about interacting with people on IMDb is that no series seems to split opinion more then Doctor Who, fundamentally we all love it, it's why we tune in each week to see what's on offer.

We've experienced highs and lows and will no doubt continue along the same vein for many years to come.

Each Doctor has offered something, some perhaps more then others. Same for its producers, there are people that have loved and loathed both Moffat and Davies, both have given us some excellent and not so excellent episodes.

The format and premise of the show remains its key strength, he can literally go anywhere and do anything, most shows are faced with multiple constraints, that isn't the case here, the possibilities are endless.

We've had episodes that are widely loved, some of my own favourites include Blink, Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead and Vincent and the Doctor. Others have positively split opinion, Love and Monsters is a good idea, personally it's one I enjoy. I can appreciate an attempt at doing something different, it's a show that could become tiresome if it became to formulaic.

I like the format of the two part serial, it allows a greater character development, sometimes with the single episode there's sometimes a feeling that some characters are a little shy of screen time.

They have been guilty of using some of the Doctor's foes too often, the Daleks for example, they've popped up a few times too many, once they were the adversary I desperately wanted to see, not it's a feeling of indifference.

Long may it continue!! I couldn't contemplate Christmas Day without my hour of Who, Baileys and Ferrero Rocher.

Great big 10/10
