Day 9: Two Characters Who Have Never Met, But Should. (Classic Edition)

I’m cheating today. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t resist. The answer that instantly came to me was to put my two all-time favorite companions together. And I have because in my head I have this entire AU going where Clara Oswald (or one of her echoes) worked for UNIT in the 1970s. My reasons are long,…

Day 8: Favorite Quote (Classic Edition)

There are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things. Things which act against everything we believe in. They must be fought. -The Second Doctor (“The Moonbase”, 1967) If ever you needed one quote to sum up basically all of Doctor Who, this one does a pretty good job of it.*  It…

Day 6: Favorite Time Period (Classic Edition)

Before we get started, I have to ask. Have you read Erin’s post for today? If you haven’t, then you need to. Our resident physics professor is in and gives us a very cheerful view of her favorite New Who time period. My answer, however, is not as sciencey as Erin’s. I am not sciencey….

Day 4: Favorite Alien Race (Classic Edition)

Okay. Technically, the prompt is “Favorite Alien Race/Alien Race You Would Like to Meet.” But I’m editing it a bit for today. A few months back, I went on a rant about 10 Classic era monsters I want back. Well, everything I said there still holds true. And I can easily think of at least 10 more…

Day 3: My First Doctor (Classic Edition)

I’m going to preface this by saying that it’s getting a tiny bit embarrassing that Erin’s answers have been somewhat varied by era, whereas I seem to be stuck in the early 1970s. However, if I wasn’t still stuck there today, my answer wouldn’t be completely honest. My first Classic Doctor, and, in fact, my first…

Day 2: Favorite Male Companion (Classic Edition)

Though the list of male companions is considerably shorter, today was another tough decision. Or at least, it could’ve been. The criteria are the same as yesterday. Does the companion get to be more than a “damsel in distress” or simply someone for the Doctor to explain things to? Does the companion get to be clever and solve…

Day 1: Favorite Female Companion (Classic Edition)

Choosing a favorite companion is like being asked to choose between your children. It just can’t be done. So when Erin and I put this challenge together, I already knew there would be a fair amount of agonizing in my future. How can you possibly choose only one favorite? How can you land on a single name and block…

A Challenge

This month on the blog, we are doing a 30-day Doctor Who challenge! Kat is taking on Classic Who (1963-1989) and Erin has New Who (2005-present)*. We both have trouble making decisions and choosing favorites, so this will be quite a challenge for us! One thing we want to stress is that this is a…
