Favorite Master:

I’ve only actually seen one of the Master’s regenerations from Classic Who and that was the very first one. I laughed so hard when the character was introduced as the Master because he was this tall, skinny dude with dark hair and a goatee and he acted like a classic villain. I was used to The Master introduced in New Who who is anything but the classic villain and the origins completely surprised and amused me. That first little string of episodes featuring the Master were actually very good, which surprised me because I had already seen the origins of things like the Daleks and such and they were very funny.

That first Master isn’t my favorite, though, the newest version is, but I doubt I can really make an informed decision based on only having seen two of them. Man, I really need to finish watching Classic Who….


Favorite Season:

I’ve only seen a few of the actual seasons of Classic Who, but out of the New Who series, I really liked series two and four. David Tennant as the Doctor, absolutely fabulous, and both Rose and Donna as companions. Those companions coupled well with the tenth Doctor because they made him happy and they were his friends. The Martha series didn’t work well for me because Martha and the Doctor weren’t really close friends and because the Doctor wasn’t happy at all, though he managed to pull together for the most part.

I’m really enjoying the Eleventh Doctor’s reign, though. The seventh series is set to start airing soon, so I’m pretty excited. The show has gotten super intricate and mysterious and I like it a lot. The fifth series was cool because of the new Doctor thing (Plus Amy is super awesome)(Not to mention Rory who is pleasingly… flail-y) and because of the new direction of the story-line and whatnot.

Even though I really like Eleven, I’m also excited to have a new Doctor, just to see how I’ll react. The transition from Nine to Ten was weird because I had actually seen some of Ten’s episodes before I started watching the episodes in order, so I knew it was coming, but I was still sad because I really like Nine. The transition from Ten to Eleven was downright traumatizing and I hated Eleven for the first episode of his, though it didn’t last very long. I think it would be interesting to get a new Doctor. It’s cool how the television series can thrive by killing off their main character. I do it sometimes in my writing, though I do mostly kill off all the supporting characters just to make my main character miserable.
