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 #149.
Midnight (TV show/planet)--Synopsis from TARDIS Wiki "The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble go to the leisure planet of Midnight for a simple, relaxing vacation. However, life with the Doctor can never be that simple, and things go horribly wrong for the Doctor when he decides to go off on a bus trip to see the Sapphire Waterfall, starting with the bus shutting down. When a mysterious entity infiltrates the shuttle bus, no one is to be trusted. Not even the Doctor himself."
Check out the "kid" in the background of this clip. Yep, it's Colin Morgan from Merlin.
Mickey Smith--Mickey was originally Rose Tyler's boyfriend who reluctantly ends up traveling with the Doctor for a while. When he realizes that Rose is head over heels for the Doctor, he opts to stay behind in an alternate universe where he can take care of his grandma. When she dies he returns to "his" version of earth. Somewhere along the way, I totally missed that he ends up married to Martha Jones.
I have to say, I really liked Mickey. Liked him more than Martha in fact.
Martha Jones--I think Freema Agyeman is beautiful, but her character Martha was my least favorite companion. She traveled with Doctor number Ten (Tennant--see how easy that is to remember?) and also developed feelings for him. Maybe this is why I didn't care for her? Following so closely after Rose I just wasn't ready for someone else falling over over him.
In the end, Martha realized the Doctor would never see her the way he saw Rose and opts to leave. She joins UNIT and evidently falls in love with Mickey some time later.
