The Time Meddler: My Tenth Doctor Wish-list

Doctor Who: Looking Back at 47 Days #9 – One Time Guest Characters

A few years ago, I did a series of 47 daily posts which all looked at different questions related to the revival series of Doctor Who, focusing on stuff I like about the show. I worked out a series of questions in advance and then picked one randomly for each day.

47 Days of Doctor Who–Day #9: Favorite One-Time Guest Character

Welcome to a 47-day series of articles about the revival version of Doctor Who (2005-present).  I’ve come up with  47 topics / questions to answer, all of them basically positive and upbeat about the program.  Each day (or as often as I can actually write these–so far so good!) I’ll pick one of them at random (using this convenient random number generator) and then write up an answer. Continue reading 47 Days of Doctor Who–Day #9: Favorite One-Time Guest Character
