Probably The Best Show Of All Time
13 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely amazing. For over fifty years, we have enjoyed the adventures of The Doctor. He has been young, old, had long hair, had short hair, been tall, been short, and he has had many companions. Rose Tyler, Donna Noble, Martha Jones, K-9, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Clara Oswin Oswald, Captain Jack Harkness, Mickey Smith, Wilfred Mott, Susan Foreman, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, Jamie McCrimmon, Jo Grant, Leela, Romana, Ace, and the best, Sarah Jane Smith, to name a few of them. The acting has always been top notch, and the characters and storyline have always been some of the best around. The special effects have gotten much better since 1963, and it now looks absolutely fantastic. The Tenth Doctor is my favorite Doctor, followed by the Fourth. I highly recommend this show, it is hard to explain just how great it really is.
