Celebrating 3 years of blogging: Doctor Who Mighty 15

Posted on

Today WordPress informed me that it has been three years since I wrote my first post. So today I will celebrate by listing my Doctor Who Mighty 15. While I’ve already listed my favourite Who stories of all time, today I am only focusing on the revived series, as I count down my 15 favourites.

Series 4 is my absolute favourite Doctor Who series. It’s the series which I started watching Doctor Who weekly rather than isolated stories here and there, but upon re-watching most of it nostalgia isn’t the only reason I love this series. It has the best companion of the revived series, the Tenth Doctor at his best, the most imaginative stories and monsters and dark themes. This two parter is the magnum opus of the series to me, and one of the Tenth Doctor’s best. It has a fascinating story with intriguing characters and a terrifying monster with a great style of duel storytelling. Silence in the Library is about the archaeologists meeting the Doctor in the Library, while Forest of the Dead is about Donna trapped in an artificial world. It’s incredibly entertaining and has great characterisation and truly frightening moments, thanks to a brilliant monster. The use of a common phrase (“Hey, who turned out the lights”) means the Vashta Nerada are memorable. This is one I re-watch regularly and it is still amazing. Read the rest of this entry
