It’s performances like this which make me disappointed when I hear people say the 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.
Everybody lives Nine is the best. I love Capaldi, Pertwee, and Smith, but Eccleston became my favourite Doctor in a tiny handful of episodes. And this is despite having Three as my favourite for my entire youth.
Got my number The repeated number plates of Cobra 11. This has been happening since the 1990s (B-DW 8271 has appeared on both André’s Mercedes-Benz and his BMW 3er), but lately, we have seen K-OP 270 in ‘Der dunkle Seite’, ‘Freunde fürs Leben’ and ‘Die Gejagten’, while K-DF 309 appeared in ‘Jung, weiblich, hochexplosiv’ and ‘Wilde Tiere’.
