After five years, the new Doctor Who is about to become new again. Doctor Eleven [Matt Smith] will take up the mantle left by Doctors Nine [Christopher Eccleston] and Ten [David Tennant] later this year.
In the meantime, here are my picks for the ten best adventures of the new series, so far:
The Doctor is back after a hiatus of nine years following FOX’s failed [but still entertaining] pilot – fourteen years after the last BBC episode [Survival, Part 3]. As portrayed by Christopher Eccleston, he’s gangly, goofy and more of an action hero than any Doctor since Four [Tom Baker]. Rose reintroduces both The Doctor and one of his more interesting enemies, The Autons – who have a plan to take over the Earth through perambulatory store mannequins. New companion Rose Tyler [Billie Piper] is introduced and she’s a right pip! Able to march The Doctor quip for quip and action move for action move, she makes Rose a classic ep by meeting The Doctor while deaths awaits [“I’m The doctor. Pleased to meet you. Run for your life!”] and by saving The Doctor’s life.
