    Top Five Moments of Series One Views: 1463
     Friday, April 07 2006 @ 12:26 AM EDT
    Okay, Ken mentioned in the latest Podshock about a great moment between the Doctor and a soldier. So, that begs the question....What are YOUR Top FIVE moments of Series One?

    Here's mine....

    5. "The End of the World"-Jabe confronts the Doctor saying she knows who he is and empathizes. The Doctor doesn't like to show his emotions but Eccleston shows just enough here to give the character some deep sadness.

    4. "The Doctor Dances"-The moment best summed up with the phrase "Everybody LIVES!!" With so much dark edginess to many Sci-Fi shows, it was nice to see a positive ending, which always was the tone of the old shows being more lighthearted and fun.

    3. "Bad Wolf"-The beginning starts with the Doctor in a "box" twirling around with techno music. Quickly, we find him trapped in a reality tv show and sitting on the red chair saying, "You've got to be kidding?!" Brilliant!

    2. "The Parting of the Ways"-The Doctor sends Rose off in the Tardis back to her time. The Tardis speeds through the space-time continuum with a classical piece of music in the background, perfectly fitting for the mood.

    1. "The Parting of the Ways"-The Doctor just finishes his big speech toward the Daleks from behind the Tardis force field. As he, Jack, and Rose re-enter the Tardis with the room full of Daleks screaching "Exterminate", a side shot with the Doctor's face obscured presses against the back of the Tardis doors. For all the bravado, behind the scenes, the Daleks, the sacrifice of Gallifrey, all weigh heavy on him. A brilliant bit of pathos.

    And, of course, a Big "Holy Crap" moment when they first revealed that the Time Lords and Gallifrey were gone! At first, I didn't like it. Then, I realized at added a whole new dimension to the Doctor. Ballsy move by RTD. And, who's to say that we might not one day see the Time Lords again?

    First off, my apologies if I misquote, but you'll get the general idea. Here are my personal favorite moments.

    5. "Nice to meet you Rose Tyler. Now run for your life!" An exhilirating first meeting with the new Doctor.

    4. "I have to say, you were fantastic. And you know what? So was I." The whole episode -- in fact the last two episodes -- were just brilliant.

    3. "Right, now where was I? Oh, yeah, that's right. Barcelona!" Now there's a cliffhanger!

    2. "I'm coming to get you." That speech in Bad Wolf is the most rousing since Henry V.

    and the moment I keep coming back to, the moment that had me laughing with glee even as it sent a shiver down my spine and I knew Doctor Who had really returned...

    1. A dungeon like room, darkness obscuring the figure the Doctor is talking to as he offers his apologies and aid. He introduces himself almost casually. In reply, a spine-chillingly familiar voice says, "Doc - tor."

    Same as "that Neil Guy" said, sorry about any misquotes.

    5. "Do you mind not farting while I'm trying to save the world". You can't beat a good fart gag.

    4. "Lots of planets have a north". Being a Northerner I loved this line.

    3. "Nice to meet you Rose Tyler. Now run for your life!" An exhilirating first meeting with the new Doctor. Lifted and shifted from Neil's post!

    2. Seeing inside the new Tardis interior for the first time.

    1. "Doc-tor. THE DOCTOR!!?"Not just one of my favourite Doctor Who moments of this series, but my favourite moment ever! It sent shivers down my spine! And was followed by a brilliant bit of neurotic outburst from the Doctor.

    There you go, my top 5. The burping bin was a close number 6. Laughing Out Loud

    He's the strongest, he's the quickest, he's the best..... "Yorkshire is a state of mind"

    No, what is that?

    It's a book featuring the 8th Doctor. You can read a very extensive review of the book at: here
    But, this is not the Time War that is referred to in Series 1 (pretty sure not). Still, a great book.

    supremacy is relative

    I've only seen the first two episodes, but "Rose" contains my all-time favorite Dr. Who moment, and I don't think it can be beat. This was the second that I stopped worrying and knew that this series was not only going to be better than all previous Doctor Whos, but better than most stuff on TV today...
    *if you're reading this thread, you must know that spoilers are in every message*

    Rose's first entrance into the TARDIS. We see a close-up of her face, then without saying a word, SHE RUNS BACK OUT AGAIN. We then get to see her DECIDE between the monster pounding at the door and going back into the TARDIS. Compare this to (for instance) Dodo's introduction to the series and you'll know what I mean.
