Day 21: Favorite Scenery (Classic Edition)

From the days of no budget, extremely wobbly sets, and that weird not-a-real-wall in the TARDIS, choosing favorite scenery is actually an incredibly joyful task. I can hear the New Who fans laughing again, but I’m totally serious. There were some absolutely incredible sets in the old days. And three in particular* stand out in my mind as…

Day 20: Favorite One-Off Character (Classic Edition)

The history of Doctor Who is absolutely chock-full of awesome one-off characters. Some that were initially intended to be one-offs even became recurring characters or companions (Donna, anyone?). But it’s no secret that some stand out more than others. That’s as true today as it ever was, but I think it’s important that we remember…

And you might remember we established in the beginning that just because…

Day 11: Favorite Costume/Clothing (Classic Edition)

There is only one correct answer for today’s prompt. Loads of companions have had nifty wardrobes over the years. But no one can compete with the fabulousness of Zoe Heriot’s. Specifically her sparkly jumpsuit. I think it has to be one of the most iconic companion looks of all time. Just as much (appropriately) as…

Day 10: Favorite Relationship Between Two Non-Doctor Characters (Classic Edition)

Despite what some may argue, early Doctor Who really focused a lot on relationships. Maybe it wasn’t a conscious decision by the writers. Or not right off, anyway. But as the series went on, they did a great deal of exploring the dynamics of different relationships. The Grandfather/Granddaughter relationship between the Doctor and Susan. The Student/Teacher relationship…
