March 26, 2005 saw the relaunch (after a 15 year hiatus) of the fan favorite DOCTOR WHO franchise to TV screens under the creative auspices of QUEER AS FOLK helmer Russell T. Davies. From that debut, New Who has become an even bigger phenomenon than it was in its first iteration on both sides of the pond. So I figured this occasion was as good a time as any to make a list of some of my favorite things from New Who.

Actually the show needs more evil Time Lords to be exact. And I am not talking about an old mainstay evil Time Lord like The Master either. I like The Master and his arcs on nuWho have been really fun but it is time for some of the criminally ignored, old school evil Time Lords to get their moments in the sun on nuWho.
This bit of news/rumor came from the Blogtor Who blog and was immediately taken down which tends to lend more credence to it being true than not. I’m sure some inventive effects will be used to deal with the fact that some of the actors who portrayed The Doctor over the years have passed on and then some wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff will need to be done to explain how all of the Doctors can be in the same place at the same time. But if all of the living actors will indeed be gathered together then I will be a truly happy camper. Hell, I would even be cool with just getting the three modern Doctors (Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith) together on my TV screen.
