The other day, I blogged about Doctor Who Series Seven. After looking back at that, I’m looking forward. It was a season of nostalgia, of memories of Doctor Who seasons we’ve never even watched. So, not perfect, but it’s kept us entertained.
So I also blogged about what we might expect from the 50th Anniversary Special, coming later this year – what seems likely, now that the special is the next episode?
I also explored some ideas of what a really epic plotline for Doctor Who might be – in terms of making a Doctor Who movie, but which could also be where they are going with a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. So let’s see if any of these ideas still have traction!
Let’s look back at my hypotheses, and consider what they’ve set up for themselves so far! Spoilers for Season Seven of Doctor Who!

Now when we initially heard that Russell T. Davies had left the show and there would be a new head writer, we were a little concerned because we had loved the show so far. At first David and I were not sure who this Steven Moffat guy was, then we started looking over our list of favorite episodes, and that is when we got really excited.
So here it is: David and my favorite episodes of Doctor Who. Continue reading
