Favourite Doctor Who Ever,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Complete BBC Series 1 Box Set  [DVD] (DVD)It's this series of Doctor Who that got me introduced to the world of The Doctor. What me made watch this show was the concept of an Alien traveling through time and space. Discovering that. Experiencing that. What me made fall in love was the connection between this Alien (The Doctor) and his newest companion Rose Tyler. A girl we'd love to relate to, weren't it for the fact we don't just meet Timelords.
The serie itselves is really fun to watch. Especially the episodes Rose, The Unquiet Dead, The Empty Child Two-parter, Father's Day and the finals dug their way to a special place in my heart.
Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is a man being burdened by the past. He's once again regaining to see the fun in his life as a timetraveler when he meets Rose. And you see how they get along with each other. And both Eccleston as Piper play this so well!
I love the fact that Rose has a family that cares about her. Causing some sad, difficult, funny and beautiful moments as the series progresses. Also the background story of her deceased father made a great episode. It all adds up to the believability of the show.
The DVDbox comes with great extras. Like interviews and trailers. Also shortened confidentionals. As someone who didn't catch it when it was live it's sad not to be able to see the whole of them. But at least it's something.
Great show. Next to series 5 it's also a great way to get introduced to the series.
