Trivia

On Thursday, March 31, 2005, the day after the show was picked up for a second season, the BBC Press Office announced that Christopher Eccleston was quitting the show, citing a fear of being typecast, and long working hours as reasons for his departure. The BBC later apologized for issuing this statement, as they had done so without consultation with Eccleston. In fact, it was agreed by mutual consent several months earlier, that Eccleston would only do one season, with the BBC holding off announcing the news until after the season was finished. This would have allowed the regeneration of Eccleston's Ninth Doctor in episode thirteen to be a surprise for the audience. Unfortunately, the BBC Press Office jumped the gun under pressure from the British Press, who were concerned that a second season had been announced, but it had not been confirmed that Eccleston was returning. Fan reaction to Eccelston's departure was violent, and the debate reached such a fever pitch, that Outpost Gallifrey, the biggest Doctor Who fan site on the Internet, was forced to close down its forum for several days.

Crazy Credits

On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes. See more »

One of the greatest television programs of all time
7 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

You looking for Sci-Fi? It's got it. Action? It's got it. Drama? That too! This show has got it all. With tastes of Horror, Romance, Mystery, even some Western. It really depends on the episode. While not episode is perfect, every episode can be appreciated. While the main idea of the show doesn't change, the show has experimented in many ways. The show is ever changing, with the main cast being swapped every few years. With such a big history, there's a reason the show still stands strong to this day. The episodes give nods to the past, and hints to the future. With this capability, it truly has an infinite potential.

This show truly has affected my life in ways I'd never believed. I went into the show believing it to be a cliché, boring Sci-Fi (I'd never been a fan of the genre), but after just a few episodes I was absolutely hooked. With each new main character added, you quickly learn to love them, despite your disbelief in the ability to after such a heartbreaking exit, which I'll get into later. The characters are written brilliantly, and by the end there run, you always say that the next person coming along will never be as good. Every time, your proved wrong. While everyone has their favorites, each Companion and Doctor have moments to shine, and are all brilliant in their own way.

This show truly is something special. I'll support this show for decades, and I give it a very easy 10/10.
