NEW WHO SEASON REPORT CARD – TEHANI

The Doctor: I came to Eccleston’s Doctor from a Season and a half of Matt Smith, and it took me a few episodes to warm up to him, but I did, and by the end was rather sad to see him go. His tendency to grin that massive grin in the face of danger, even after mad pronouncements of doom, was a wonderful character trait, and despite (because of?) his “daft old face”, he was just lovely.

The Companions:

Rose Tyler: I really am not a Rose fan – she’s just so, urgh, right word, frivilous? That’s not really it, and to be fair, she does improve throughout the season, and I thought her few minutes channelling the time vortex was done brilliantly. I guess I just don’t find her all that believable a lot of the time – maybe she’s too opportunistic? Her self-centredness gets on my nerves. Second time around, she’s okay, and in her good bits, she’s great!

Adam Mitchell: I liked that he was smart, but he was never going to last!

Jack Harkness: Absolutely LOATHED him on the first watch through, but second time around he was really likeable. Weird, but true.

Recurring Characters:

Jackie Tyler: Jackie is tough despite her ditziness, and I love that we get to see more of her evolve as the season goes on.

Mickey Smith: Poor Mickey. Starts out really quite useless, but gets stronger as time passes, partly because Rose is so horrid to him. Well, maybe not entirely fair – I think for her Mickey kind of devolves to a brotherly role – not her fault he didn’t feel the same.

Describe this season in one word!

Fun!

Grade: If I’d seen this season first, I would have been impressed, but it had to live up to what came later for me, which is hard to do. Thoroughly watchable though! B

  2. I watched the Tennant episodes before the Eccleston ones, and I actually liked Rose more after season 1. She just made more sense. Jack is also a lot more likeable in Doctor Who than in Torchwood, in my opinion. Mickey is also a favourite.

    Can’t wait to see your discussion on the tenth Doctor!
