Ten Years Ago Today

Bloody hell, is it that time already?

I must be honest, ten years ago today I sat down to watch Rose hoping and praying it would be good but fearing it would be shit. Of course, my fears were groundless and the minute Chris grabbed Billie’s hand and said “Run!” I knew everything would be ok.

Chris Eccles, Billie Piper, Camille Coduri-Milf, Bronze Daleks. What a comeback. God Bless Sir Russell Tea of Gayness. THE UNQUIET DEAD is currently my fave from that first year, such a shame one was all we got. Miserable Northern Git. Let’s hope he comes back on audio sometime soon and does a Sixie.

Ah, David Ten-inch. Eccles was good, but he was even better. The Next Gen’s Tom Baker. The Man. Or at least he was until Capaldi came along. How could you not love the nostalgiafest of SCHOOL REUNION? And of course BLINK is rightly on everybody’s favourites list, even if Freema Agyeman isn’t. For me, it has to be Donna Noble. PARTNERS IN CRIME and that mime sequence. And THE UNICORN AND THE WASP is brilliant, as was Julian Bleach’s Davros, pity he never came back again. As for David, he was The Man. And for many he always will be.

Enter The Moff and dear old Smiffy. Patrick Troughton mk 2 only different. The sheer joy of THE LODGER, and instant classic THE DOCTOR’S WIFE. And then there’s THE SNOWMEN and THE CRIMSON HORROR. Dear old Matt “Schlong” Smith, he had possibly the hardest job of all but the boy done well. Only eight more years ’til he’s back for the Sixtieth Anniversary Special.

The Man. Pietro Capaldini. Jon Pertwee mk2 only better. THE MUMMY ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. `nuff said. Here’s to the next decade. Gaun yirsel, big man. Yaldi Capaldi!

  1. Hard to think it’s been a decade, when you think of all we’ve seen in those years that we’d never have imagined a second before that opening episode of Rose. I’m thinking 5 new Dr’s (John Hurt), two spin off shows (Torchwood, Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures all running in unison was a stroke of genious fronm RTD) various animated serials and cinematic releases. incredible, long may it continue.

  2. I think they should do “The Three Masters” whilst Jacobi’s still in his prime.
