Bronwyn and I are big fans of Doctor Who. Since the 2005 reboot of the show, we’ve watched every episode more than a couple of times. We enjoy the commentary, the discussion, and the various debates that pop up from time to time, so we thought it would be fun to record our observations of this first series of the show featuring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper. If you’re a fan of the show, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this episode.
“The series introduces the newly-regenerated Ninth Doctor (Eccleston) sometime after his involvement in the Time War, which the Doctor claims wiped out all of the Time Lords (save himself) and the Daleks. The Doctor meets Rose Tyler (Piper), a young woman working in a department store in contemporary London. Rose is fascinated by the Doctor and joins him in adventures in space and time with his TARDIS, though her behavior worries her mother Jackie (Camille Coduri) and boyfriend Mickey Smith (Noel Clarke), particularly after one instance where she goes missing for twelve months. The Doctor and Rose’s travels bring them to meet Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), a Time Agent from the 51st century who joins them as a companion. During their travels, they are unaware that the words “Bad Wolf” appear near them on their travels, such as graffiti written on walls. The Doctor becomes aware of the frequent reappearance of the word and suspects it is some sign of things to come that is following them.”
