Agreed on all counts.

To each their own, of course, but IMO Donna absolutely rocked.

I spent the first half of The Runaway Bride hating Donna, and the second half loving her to the point where, at the end the doctor invites her along I kinda wanted her to go. When she was cast as a companion proper for S4 I had a momentary wobble, then realised that she was pretty much the modern incarnation of one of my favourite companions in that, in effect, she was Tegan, from that moment on I had no doubts. Having said that I didn't realise just how good she was going to be, or how much I'd end up loving Donna Noble.

Best new series companion by far, with first season Rose in second place (seriously the Piper/Tennant giggly act got real old, real fast) Then Martha and second season Rose about level. Freema, gorgeous girl and always seems very nice, but crikey you'd think she came from the forests of Cheem!

Re: A Hater Revisits nuWho

I, too, initially disliked Donna because of "The Runaway Bride" and I was not happy when she was announced to be the series 4 companion. However, when Starkers pointed out the similarities to Tegan (who is also a favorite companion), I decided to keep an open mind. After the end of "The Fires of Pompeii" (where Donna really channeled Tegan from the beginning of Time-Flight), I fell in love with Donna and quickly became my favorite new Doctor Who companion (passing Jack and Mickey). She's still not quite my all time favorite companion, but she's still quite good.

Donna was brilliant, easily the best companion of the relaunch.

Incidently, I watched Turn Left last night and I'd totally forgotten about the maid pointing at Donna like the evil monkey from Family Guy.

She's probably in my top 5 of companions.

Not for me. No way beating Romana, Leela, Ace, The Brig, and Jamie.

Romana II?

Hmm...well maybe top 5 was hasty...top 10, maybe even top 7?

Tegan, Jamie, Zoe, Sarah-Jane, Leela, Romana II...

Yeah Donna, definitely top 7!

Is it McCoy who says a fan came up to him once and said something along the lines of "You're my fifth favourite Doctor" or something?

Both. I honestly can't decide which Romana I prefer, so I just lump them together. Yeah, I know it's cheating.

For me, it would probably be Romana, Leela, Ace, The Brig, Jamie, Tegan, Ian, and then finally Donna, narrowly beating out Zoe and K-9.

Hm, that sounds familiar but I can't say for certain. I'm sure he's accustomed to us zany Whovians.

Re: A Hater Revisits nuWho

Now I'm just thinking of lumping both Romanas togeather...Actually I think Donna would either be fifth or sixth place for me. I'd probably put Romana !! 7th leaving Donna and Zoe to fight it out for fifth place.

There's a decent comedy sketch in that alleged conversation I think....

"Mr Ecclston, Mr Eccleston, you're my fifth favourourite Doctor."

Probably wouldn't have any teeth left if I told him he was my tenth favourite then...

I've added an extra couple of lines to the Father's Day review. Something I forgot to put. Just thought I'd mention.

Anyway, I've worked out I should do a review every three days to keep on track.

[QUOTE=Stille Nacht;3674619
Refer to and quote from the article if you like. However, it's not kosher to scan the material in and post those scans when said material is copyrighted.[/QUOTE]

Really? These are scans from a overseas magazine that went out of print back in October, I wonder if it genuinely infringes on sales.

But I apologise anyway and type out excerpts from the magazine:

TOP THIRTY DW EPISODES OF ALL TIME (AS VOTED IN DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE).

30 - "The Curse of Fenric"
29 - "The War Games"
28 - "The Ark in Space"
27 - "Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords"
26 - "Horror of Fang Rock"
25 - "The Tomb of the Cybermen"
24 - "Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead"
23 - "The Web of Fear"
22 - "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday"
21 - "The Power of the Daleks"
20 - "The Deadly Assassin"
19 - "Earthshock"
18 - "The Evil of the Daleks"
17 - "Terror of the Zygons"
16 - "The Seeds of Doom"
15 - "Dalek"
14 - "Remembrance of the Daleks"
13 - "The Stolen Earth/Journey's End"
12 - "Turn Left"
11 - "The Girl in the Fireplace"
10 - "Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways"

Ratio wise, those episodes are very heavy on the RTD era, are they trying to say the classic series sucks by comparison..hmm
