S1 started my era of Doctor Who and even though I didn’t begin till S2 properly , this ia good starting point for people to begin.
Christopher Eccleston was the Doctor for this series. I liked Chris’s interpretation of the character and its a shame Chris struggled behind the scenes band left after one series but he did a amazing job. I think he brought out some intense scenes with pure emotional and this why it’s a good series.
Billie Piper plays Rose Tyler. I like her more in this series that S2 but I also relate to her more here. She has fantastic moments and I love there fact that they chose a singer to play her and this helped Billie’s acting career.
There are 4 recurring characters
– Jackie Tyler (Camille Coduri)
– Mickey Smith (Noel Clarke)
– Adam Mitchell (Bruno Langley)
– Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman)
I like them all but my favourites are Jack and Mickey becomes Jack is a entertained and kind of has comic value as a character like Nardole does but more stylish but I love the action figure. Mickey grows from being scared and he does have a relapse in Boom Town and that can happen but I feel S2 is where he grows more.
Bad Wolf arc is one of Russell T Davies best story arcs in his era and I like the way he uses different kind of referencing like graffiti and names. I am glad they re use it a future series so I am glad it’s more memorable story arc for me.
I liked the episodes but my favourite ones were the Dalek ones as it kind if was more danger related and led to the Doctor’s regeneration. The Satellite 5 centred ones were good as well.
3 things I would improve:
1. Ross had some more likeable ness
2. More time more Male companions
3. Better attempts at romance
Great start to the series and Welcome Back Doctor Who!
