K and C’s favourite Doctor Who episodes/serials (in no particular order)

The Idiot’s Lantern

This is an episode that we love because its a family favourite. This is our Mum’s favourite episode, and sometimes the three of us still sit down together and watch it. 

To others it may not be very exciting or memorable, but we just love the family relationships in it, the setting of 1950’s England with everyone crowded around the television to watch the Coronation. We love television and its history, and we love that the villain is some RP speaking woman played by Maureen Lipman taking people’s faces as they watch TV (only in Doctor Who!)

It’s got some great Ten and Rose interactions and a really lovely moment when Tommy stands up to his father, and when Rita tells her husband that it wasn’t her mother who was the monster living under their roof, it had been him all along- ah such good characters. We love stories about people the most, so that’s probably why this one sticks with us. We love that it plays on nostalgia and captures a time gone by with fondness and warmth, whilst showing the bad sides too, and the things people kept hidden. A rather nice little story.

Father’s Day

A simple story about Rose saving her father’s life and having to deal with the consequences of that choice. It’s a beautiful episode filled with powerful and emotional character moments, as well as moments of light relief thrown in.  Rose’s interactions with the father she never really knew are heartbreaking, and the story shows how much we would do to save someone we love. 

Another aspect we love is that the Doctor never told Rose how everything could be fixed, he knew that Pete’s sacrifice would save everyone and yet he tried to come up with another alternative, not wanting to tear Rose from her Daddy one more time. 

The moment where Rose cradles her Dad and Jackie tells young Rose that a girl was with him, well that was beautifully done. Overall its just a great character drama and a story about meddling with time, and having to deal with the choices you make.

An Unearthly Child | Rose

When the pilot was re-done, the first shot of Barbara barging into the TARDIS was changed to a close-up for dramatic effect to focus on Barbara’s reaction to the ship before the audience sees it. As the camera pulls away from her, you then get this great image of the white walls and suddenly see how big the TARDIS is. There’s a great contrast from the dark everyday junkyard to the clinical, futuristic space/time ship. 

In fact the close up on the companion’s face was a popular shot which was replicated again when the series returned in 2005, with Rose’s entrance into the TARDIS:

"In the 2005 series both Ken Boak (director of Rose) and Euros Lyn (Director of End of the World) followed Waris Hussein’s (Director of first ever episode An Unearthly Child) lead.  Rose’s first entrance to the TARDIS makes use of a remarkably similar shot composition to Barbara’s first entrance: Rather than a shot of the striking new TARDIS set, the first thing we see is a close up of Rose’s bewildered reaction.  Similarly for Rose’s first journey into the far future, Euros Lyn demonstrates thoughtful attention to the scene’s dramatic potential rather than rushing to impress us with the spectacle of a future world." -David Butler (time and relative dissertations in space)

They even both have cute hats! Barbara did it better.

"The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know he showed you too. That you don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say no. You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away."

You can’t spend the rest of your life thinking about the Doctor.
