Did I just luck out and see both of THE BEST episodes of this series or are they all pretty dang good? LOL
I think the show is one of the best on TV. I watched it when I was a kid, but I don't remember much, except it was the doctor with the long scarf. I started watching again with the new show and Christopher Eccelson as the doctor. I think the scariest episode is the two part Library episode with the Vashta Narada.

Wow, what a good find!

DS9 is a big Dr. fan. And that is an excellent episode. I too get a little weepy when I think of it. Indeed, the feels.

DD12 has a sick, twisted sense of humor. She wants to buy a small angle statue and put it outside DS's bedroom window. He will freak!

You think that's bad... A few months ago I was reading the news online and there was an article about a stone angel found in my town. No one knew where it came from. It was obviously stolen from a cemetery and dumped, but a tiny part of me went ahhhhhhh

Here is another good weeping angel story involving me. I bought an Angel Bob action figure as a joke for a friend. I ended up having it in my house for a few weeks. It was all fun and games until I came home one day and Angel Bob was not where I left him. I still haven't figured out how he fell and landed a good 5 feet from my desk considering I had no pets and I was the last to leave and the first one home that day. After that I kept Angel Bob downstairs instead of in my bedroom.

As long as Angel Bob didn't talk to you via radio. Gosh, that would have freaked me out though. We just watched that episode again a few nights ago. I'm still a little creeped out.

I think Angel Bob would have become an outside action figure at my house!

Just so ya know:

There are Dr Who shirts in UK in Epcot! A Tardis shirt, weeping angel shirt and "the angels have the phone box" shirt. They are in the gift shop towards the back of the path, can't remember name of shop but there was also a ton of Beatles items. I believe the shop is back by the tea shop. DS has a Tardis that spins, makes the sounds of the Tardis, lights up & the door opens and u can see inside! Very cool!

I remember going to a convention in 1985 where Peter Davison was the guest. He talked very proudly about his new baby girl. Of course, she grew up and married David Tennant.

Which makes me older than dirt.

New to the board so I thought you were talking about Star Trek. I'll have to remember that means Dear Son 9yo.

Bit of a Whovian as well. I picked up this shirt recently from Woot: shirt.woot.com/offers/passenger

Kinda feel odd wearing a glow in the dark shirt, but my baby girl loves it.

Might have been I-Con 5 here in NY (IIRC). I remember WLIW (public TV) was giving away tickets to the convention to see Peter back then. I wanted to go, but couldn't. I didn't start attending I-Con until DH and I started dating and he took me to I-Con 7 for one day. We attended every year up until 10 years ago. Throughout all of those years, I was able to get autographs from Terry Nation, John Pertwee, Slyvester McCoy and John Levine (Sergeant John Benton of U.N.I.T.). I also had managed to purchase the Doctor Who RPG (role playing game) that I've only played once. Years later, I realized that it's missing some of the instructions.

That would be Tom Baker. He's DH's favorite doctor.

We saw them as well, but they only go up to size L (I think).

DD19 and I are big Dr Who fans.l I got her a Don't Blink t-shirt.

When she graduated high school last year, the cake was a Tardis. Then at Christmas DH made her a 6 ft tall Tardis bookcase. She almost cried when she saw it. Before it was moved upstairs to her room, she would open the blinds in the room where the Tardis was. So when you drove up to our house you could see the Tardis inside.
