In the spring of 2009, I’d run out of Battlestar Galactica episodes to watch, and I was desperate for more sci-fi television. I’d seen the new series of Doctor Who around Netflix, and as a fan of Classic Who, I was immediately wary of the new series’ quality. But one night I got bored, and I clicked on an episode titled “Rose.” Four years later, and I’ve never been so glad to be wrong in my whole life.

As the Collectiva Diva and I countdown to the 50th Anniversary special of DW in our Doctor Who Week, we will be taking a look back at some of our favorite moments, characters and episodes in the rebooted and classic series. To start with, the Doctor who I feel needs a little more appreciation from the fandom (see what I did there?).

The Premise
