"Who am I to argue with history?"
"Usually, the first in line."
-- The Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler, Doctor Who: "The Doctor Dances"
My good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we're joined by special guest companion Nicola Wood as we explore the Christopher Eccleston two-part story, "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances"!
Exploring these Series One episodes from 2005, Jesse, Nicola and I discuss things like Nicola's introduction to Doctor Who, her favorite classic and modern Doctors, Eccleston's role in bringing the show back, American audiences adapting to Eccleston's accent, lying to skeptical people on Doctor Who to get them hooked, the first true classic of the modern era, Steven Moffat's first story for Doctor Who, the Ninth Doctor suffering from PTSD, the greatness of Captain Jack Harkness, Steven Moffat's best character, the fun of historical episodes, the awkwardness of hiding your homosexual affair during the London Blitz, dancing as a sexual metaphor, a love letter to Britain, our Reverse the Polarity segment, and more!
