Doctor Who review

Review of Doctor Who

Warning: Spoilers
I never saw any of the old series (which was number 9 on The 100 Greatest Kids' TV Shows, and number 3 on The 100 Greatest TV Programmes), I might have wanted to see the ones with Tom Baker or Jon Pertwee. Doctor Who in today's time is very good, some weird or slightly corny episodes, but still a bloody good series. The two Doctors so far, National Television Award and BAFTA winning Christopher Eccleston, and National Television Award and BAFTA (UK and Wales) winning David Tennant have been very good. His two companions, fit twice National Television Award winning, and Wales BAFTA nominated Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, and also fit Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones are also good. They have had some good cast members and guests, including John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness (who got his own show, Torchwood), Noel Clarke as Mickey Smith, Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler, Simon Day, Zoรซ Wanamaker, Sara Stewart, Simon Callow, Coronation Street's Bruno Langley, Simon Pegg, Tamsin Greig, Richard Wilson, Davina McCall, Anne Robinson, Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine, Anthony Head, Roger Lloyd-Pack, Shirley Henderson, Peter Kay, EastEnders' Raji James, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Barbara Windsor, Dean Lennox Kelly, Ardal O'Hanlon and Life of Mars's John Simm. A weird and wonderful journey through the past, present and future with aliens, flying saucers, Empty (gas mask wearing) Child Zombies saying "Mommy", K9 and Sarah Jane (who also got their own show, The Sarah Jane Adventures), Cyberman, the Daleks (of course) and a very good Doctor (he was number 6 on The 100 Greatest TV Characters). It won the BAFTA for the TV Audience Award and Best Drama Series, and it was nominated the BAFTA for Best Editing Fiction/Entertainment, Best Visual Effects, Best Director for Joe Ahearne, Best Writer for Russell T. Davies, Break-Through Talent for Edward Thomas and New Media Developer, it won the Wales BAFTAs for Best Editor and Best Drama Series/Serial, and it won the National Television Awards for Most Popular Drama twice. The Daleks were number 39 on The 100 Greatest Scary Moments. Very good!
