Christopher Eccleston was a seriously underrated Doctor. Everyone talks about Matt Smith and David Tennant but it was Eccleston that brought a fresh take on a character that everyone already knew for a new audience. I loved him and just think he doesn’t get enough praise!
“Rose… Before I go, I just want to say you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I!”
(12 misses Rose. Beautiful video that I had to make some gifs from. Not seen it? Go now. Go! 12 and Rose though, never knew this was something I’d like to see. How appropriate is it that today was 12 years ago that the episode Rose aired and the new era of Doctor Who began.)
Happy Birthday, Doctor Who! Remembering Rose, the first episode of the revised series of Doctor Who, airing 12 years ago on this date. I miss these little video chats with Peter during Series 9 filming. It was a nice way to visibly connect with someone who loves the show as much as the rest of us.
