WhovianNet readers have named Series 4 as the greatest series of NuWho to date!

Last month we opened a poll to determine the best series of the last decade to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the revived series. And oh, what a decade it has been!

The first episode, Rose, aired exactly 10 years ago today, on Saturday 26th March 2005, and everybody’s favourite Time Lord has been running ever since. It’s been the trip of the lifetime and we wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

2008 was a momentous year for the show. The fourth series welcomed back Donna Noble as the Tenth Doctor’s full time travelling companion and together they faced the likes of the Sontarans, the Vespiform and the Vashta Nerada. This series also introduced River Song as well as Jenny, the Doctor’s daughter, and it all culminated in one of the most epic stories in the show’s history when the Doctor’s allies joined forces to conquer Davros and the Daleks.

It’s fitting, then, that you’ve named it the best series of NuWho to date, with a landslide 32% of the final vote. In at second place was Series 2 with 16%, followed by Series 8 in third place with 15%. A huge thank you to everybody who voted. Are you pleased with the results? Have your say below and join us we wish NuWho a very happy 10th anniversary!

happy-10th-anniversary-nuwho

Yes, it really has been that long! Doctor Who returned to our screens exactly 10 years ago today, on Saturday 26th March 2005, and nothing was ever the same again.

It’s safe to say that reinventing the series for a 21st century audience was an almighty risk for the BBC, and that’s not to mention Russell T Davies who quite literally put his entire career on the line. It all paid off, though (and then some!), as TV’s favourite Time Lord was welcomed back with opens arms and the show has been going from strength to strength ever since. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun!

Over 100 episodes, four Doctors (plus a secret one nobody knew about!), a plethora of companions and a menagerie of monsters, both new and old, later, it truly has been the trip of a lifetime and we wouldn’t have missed it for the world. Here’s to the next 10 years!

What are your memories of the last 10 years of time and space? Share ‘em below and join the conversation on Twitter using the #10YearsOfNuWho hashtag. It’s only just beginning…

your-hopes-for-nuwhos-10th-anniversary

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of Doctor Who’s revived series and, while it’s by no means comparable to the scale of its 50th, it’s still a landmark that deserves to be recognised.

So far the BBC haven’t revealed any details about what – if anything – they’ll be doing to commemorate the milestone but that hasn’t stop fans speculating.

A popular rumour is that characters from the last 10 years will be returning for a series of new minisodes whereas some have called for them to be featured in the series itself.

Perhaps the Twelfth Doctor could phase an enemy from the last decade in Series 9 or maybe a comeback of one of his 21st century companions is on the cards? The possibilities are certainly endless and here’s where you can leave all of our NuWho 10th anniversary hopes and speculation. Let us know what you think the celebrations could entail below…

Russell T Davies, who oversaw the revival, has confirmed he will not be returning in 2015.

Russell T Davies has revealed that he’s declined an offer from the BBC to return to Doctor Who for its 10th anniversary.

2015 marks a decade since the show’s return to our screens and the former showrunner, who oversaw its critically acclaimed revival, has admitted that he’s concentrating on his own projects and doesn’t have time to commit to a comeback. “I don’t know what they imagined,” he told Radio Times. “A talk or a convention perhaps. I just said no. To be honest, a programme can’t have its fiftieth and then it’s tenth. That’s just confusing. Let it carry on.”

He continued: “I made 60 episodes and did 40 Torchwoods and 40 Sarah Janes and there are an awful lot of ways to destroy the world in there. Steven Moffat invites me every year to come and write one. I love him and I love them and I love watching it, but here I am, moving on. I love Doctor Who but nothing is more important to me than my own stuff.”

It’s currently unknown what the BBC is planning, if anything, to mark the 10th anniversary of ‘NuWho’ but rumours suggest that new minisodes are being produced for the milestone.
