Welcome to Tardis Interruptus!
Nick opens, introducing that the topic of this week’s episode is the Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston. He explains how he became a Whovian, sharing the similarities between the Doctors of the classic series and the new. Nick and Richard give a brief synopsis of how Russell T. Davies brought the franchise back in a crisp, smart way. Nick draws several parallels between Russell and Barry Letts and the Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee. The gang muses on the importance of Mickey and Jackie as a grounding device for Rose. Richard appreciates how extended characters are impacted by The Doctor as well as his wonderment of the universe. The episode, Dalek, sealed the deal for everyone given Chris’ intensity. They boys compare the range of extremes that the Ninth Doctor shares with Sylvester McCoy and the Seventh Doctor.
