I've always wanted to build my own Dalek and do that! This is winning so much. I's also love to ride the elevator as a Dalek. That would prove to be a fun experience.
Would they say LIFT!!!! or ELEVATOR!!!!!!
You know, I think I have an old treatment lying around for a Doctor Who story arc that I wrote for the lead up to the 50th anniversary but never sent it in to the Beeb. It was meant to be a mini-series focused on The First Doctor in the years prior to An Unearthly Child. It would have run parallel to the Eleventh Doctor series and they would combine at the end to tell a single complete story. I had quite a bit of it planned out.
The First Doctor would have told the story of a young Doctor, before he gets the name. His actual name would have been a plot point in the story. He steals a TARDIS and goes joyriding across time and space, eventually ending up in London during the Blitz. His title, "The Doctor" would be given to him when he finds himself in a shelter during a bombing raid. Someone has been injured during the bombing and The Doctor saves his life. Other people inside the shelter mistake him for an actual doctor and it's during this time that he grows to understand and appreciate the human spirit. He returns to Gallifrey a Time Lord. The Doctor lives on Gallifrey for a while, falls in love, has a wife and a few kids. But the Doctor longs for adventure, to explore all the universe has to offer and much of the series would focus on him and his family as they travel through time and space. He's still going by his birth name at this point (I hadn't decided what that name was...it's a big decision) and we see the adventures he has with his family as he watches his kids grow. He eventually even becomes a grandfather. The "First Doctor" only episodes end with tragic death of his family. They are murdered in front of him. The Doctor is only able to save his infant granddaughter Susan. He returns to Gallifrey a broken man, left to raise his granddaughter alone. There are various subplots that tie together that I don't quite remember off hand but it was based on the idea that the Time Lord High Council may have conspired to have him killed. Fearing for the life of his granddaughter, The Doctor steals a TARDIS once more, this time taking Susan with him and returns to the place where he felt most content - London. At this point it's about 10 years before An Unearthly Child. There he stays, finally taking on the title of a Time Lord - The Doctor.
There's a lot more to it that that. I'm typing what I remember off-hand. If I find the treatment, I'll post more of the First Doctor arc.
The Eleventh (though it could have been the Twelfth) Doctor arc begins with the Time War. We actually go back to the Eight Doctor and see how the Time War ended. This frames the arc as a big part of it is the return of Gallifrey and Skaro to normal time and space, which also means the return of Rassilon and The Master. But here's the twist. The Master is sane. The drums have stopped and much of the arc has The Master as the Doctor's companion all the while Rassilon is becoming more and more unstable. He wants to reignite the Time War against the Daleks and the Doctor and Master basically team up to stop him. By the end of the arc, Master and Doctor return to Gallifrey to halt Rassilon's mad scheme and in the end The Master becomes the new Chancellor of the High Council, effectively becoming ruler of Gallifrey and the Time Lords.
This is where both arcs combine. As a child, the Master looked into the untempered schism. He saw the time vortex. He saw past, present and future. It had driven him mad. But he was sane once more. His mind was his own and with sanity came a memory. Something he had seen in the vortex. A sequence of events that led him to the throne of Gallifrey. One event in particular was a fixed point in time. An event that had to happen for the sake of the universe. So The Master resolves to make it happen and travels through time. When the Doctor discovers his scheme, he goes back after The Master. He ends up on a familiar world in his own past, arriving just in time to the his family killed in front of his younger self. From this new vantage point, he sees the killer's face for the first time - The Master.
The Master returns to Gallifrey with The Doctor following, seeking revenge. The Master explains that he saw the Doctor's life through the Untempered Schism. And he saw his own life. He saw what the Doctor would do. How many times he would save the universe. How many times the Master would try to conquer it. Master would basically imply that The Doctor's family had to die to protect the universe and the time line. Enraged, The Doctor would attack the Master and......to be concluded.

A wibbly wobbly timey wimey thread for the good Doctor, fantastic. Now where are the Jammie Dodgers, Jelly Babies and of course, fish fingers and custard?
I've been a Doctor Who fan since the original series. Really hard to pick a favorite at this point, but Eleven, Ten and Nine were brilliant, of course got to say Four, Five and Seven have long been on my favorites list too.
I just started watching Dr. Who for the first time (the latest re-incarnation starting with Rose as a companion), and I am totally hooked. Just about finishing David Tennant's episodes.
Can't believe I hadn't seen this sooner! I am absolutely, completely and utterly in love with Donna Noble. What a heartbreaker, she is. I think Blink, The Fires of Pompeii, and Silence in the Library are some of my favorite episodes so far. Although yesterday I saw The Waters of Mars, and that was pretty good as well <3.
I'm hating the fact that my time with Tennant as the dr. is but an episode away from being over . Really. Really sad. He is amazing.
Deals with every situation in a bad ass way.
4: Tom Baker, my first Doctor from BBC reruns. the overly-long Scarf....
5: Peter Davison, also from BBC reruns.
9: Christopher Eccleston, my first real-time Doctor and still favourite of the new generation doctors. 1 season was not enough.
10: David Tennant, was in some of my favourite episodes. Blink, Girl in the Fireplace, School Reunion (ahhh Sarah Jane Smith ), and End of Time amongst others.
11: Matt Smith, took awhile to adjust but has become very enjoyable to watch and still has the BEST x-mas special to date (flying-swimming sharks in the fog )
