I decided to jump on the Doctor Who: The Complete First Series bandwagon and watch the first two episodes of the first season starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose.
I like the Doctor and how everything is a joke to him but when push comes to shove he can be serious. I also love his impish grin that lights up his whole face; makes me smile and eager to see what comes next.
I hope to learn more about the Time Lords. If they have the ability to travel through time couldn’t they have figured out how to change the war or end it before the planet was destroyed.
So far Rose seems inquisitive but mopey. She is on an adventure of a lifetime; meeting alien races and traveling through time she should be having the time of her life but she seems homesick. The Tardis is a time machine so she can always go back to the exact point in time she left and nothing would be amiss but she would have all these experiences.
I did like the way she was able to save the Doctor, her coward of a boyfriend and do a Tarzan like move to take down the Plastics. Another part I like is when she yelled at Cassandra the Last Human.
I can see why the human race died out. How could they procreate when humans are flat pieces of skin with veins? I did think it was funny how the writers took our obsession of wrinkle free, tight skin and thin bodies to the extreme.
The Doctor has seen planet earth come to an end from a space station that can withstand the heat and debris of a supernova but can’t seem to run his ship without pumping or spinning some contraption? I would think he would have some awesome technology on the Tardis that he would have gotten from other times and alien races.
Before posting this I saw the third and fourth episode and it gets so much better. Seems to leave the viewer with more questions than answers at the end of the episode though. I can’t wait to figure out what “Bad Wolf” means, it keeps popping up in the episodes.
