DAY 7 – THE PARTING OF WAYS #SaveTheDay #TheCountdownIsOn #DoctorWho #DoctorWho50thAnniversary

The first regeneration of the Doctor in the new era. Christopher Eccleston‘s departure and David Tennant‘s introductions.   A brilliant  conclusion to the Bad Wolf storyline.

First things first: Nine departs and Ten arrives.  Nine’s goodbye to Rose is wonderful.

The Doctor: Rose… before I go, I just want to tell you: you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? [Pause] So was I!

It was so beautiful.  The way he just BURST into a light of energy and regenerated.  And then we got Ten.  If you couldn’t already tell, I love Ten. Oh, Barty Crouch. But as much as I love Ten (and the general relationship with Rose) I hate that they brought in the romantic aspect of their relationship.  It was completely unnecessary.  Which is kind of why this is one of my favourite episodes: it marks the last time that there isn’t really any obvious romantic aspect between the two.  This also introduces us to the whole regeneration process.  By us, I mean the new generation of viewers.

“I am the Bad Wolf…”

Bad Wolf has been one of my favourite storylines

I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words, I scatter them in time and space. A message to lead myself here.

I honestly didn’t notice that the words were scattered in several episodes throughout the first series. It was so ‘Bad’ Ass. It’s the last part of a two-parter episode which features a number of British game shows with a futuristic twist.

It’s FANTASTIC!
