Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! My theme is Doctor Who because its the topic my kids voted we do together. We're sticking with people, places, creatures, and episodes from the newer series starting with Christopher Eccleston's (#9) simply because we haven't watched all the Classics...yet.
You can find the list of other participants HERE. I'm #155.
Christopher Eccleston played Doctor #9 for one season in 2005. This is probably when a lot of us discovered Doctor Who for the first time. Here's a quote from Eccleston that sums it up nicely.
"I think it's more important to be your own man than be successful, so I left. But the most important thing is that I did it, not that I left. I really feel that, because it kind of broke the mold and it helped to reinvent it." - Eccleston speaking about Doctor WhoEccleston is an amazing actor, but I didn't realize the impact he'd made on me until we rented Thor 2. First you have to understand that I'm TERRIBLE with names and faces. It takes a long time for me to remember band or singer names and match them up with their sound or face. So, we were sitting there watching this movie and there was just something about Malekith.
I finally announced to the room, "I think that's Chris Eccleston." My daughters paused and agreed I might be right. We all pulled out our phones and started looking up Thor 2 on IMBD. Sure enough! What was it that tipped me off?
His voice. Love it!
Eknodine--creepy aliens that lived inside the elderly in the episode "Amy's Choice". This appendage could come out of their mouth and they would spray a green cloud that could turn humans to dust.
This was a cool episode where the Doctor, Amy and Rory have to decide which reality is a dream.
