Christopher Eccleston on the relationship between the Doctor and his companions
Doctor Who cast ⟶ Christopher Eccleston
“The thing about The Doctor is, he’s very inclusive. He doesn’t see the alien in aliens and I loved that about him. Also the fact that he’s never at home. He’s a Time Lord and he’s always, always falling though the universe. When I thought about that, I thought I could play that.”
It’s performances like this which make me disappointed when I hear people say they don’t like Eccelston or skip over that whole season just to get to Tennant. Tennant was fantastic and a brilliant Doctor, but there wouldn’t be a Tennant Doctor without Eccleston’s Doctor. The way Tennant’s Doctor was portrayed was the effect that Rose had on Nine. In the beginning, Nine was harsh and unforgiving having come back from the Time War, his time with Rose softened that harsh attitude and it’s really shown in this episode.
“Just this once, everybody lives!” Has to be my absolute favourite line in all the history of Doctor who because in that episode everyone did.
I cry in almost all of Nine’s episodes. But not happy or sad tears. Just fucking intense emotion tears. He was fantastic.
This episode scared the shit out of me.
Nine’s my favorite Doctor. Just saying. He’s just so FUCKING AMAZING
so i saw this post that said nine was like a tiger, ten like tigger, and eleven like a socially awkward cat and that is seriously the best description i’ve ever heard omg
Nine needs more love. ♥
