So the other day “The Woman Who Fell to Earth” aired marking the first episode of the Thirteenth Doctor as played by Jodie Whittaker. Afterwards I saw many tweets and Facebooks posts about how she is now some people’s favorite Doctor. And I found that a little … odd. By no means am I saying she’s a terrible Doctor, it’s just that I enjoyed Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor, but it took half a season or so for me to realize that I enjoyed David Tennant’s Doctor more. My current ranking of my favorite, new Doctors goes Tenth, War, Twelfth, Ninth, Eleventh. I don’t know where Thirteen fits yet.
Trying to fit her in based on her first episode is, as I said, odd. Especially since the episode itself wasn’t – in my opinion – all that special. I mean, the Doctor is a little out of it because their regeneration is still cooking. When have we seen that before, except in “The Christmas Invasion,” “The Eleventh Hour,” and “Deep Breath.” Give me four or five regular episodes to see the fully formed Doctor in new adventures and then I’ll start jostling her into my rankings.
