Doctor Who – Watch All The Regenerations – Video

Just now, I impulsively decided to watch all nine regenerations of The Doctor from Doctor Who, and well… the video that I found on YouTube basically illustrates the evolution of technology. [Technology has evolved from black & white to eye-catching effects to full-blown computer-generated imagery (CGI)].

I truly don’t have an answer as to why I looked for the video, out of the blue. Maybe my brain just works in mysterious ways? Or, maybe it’s because I’m a former jock turned technologically-savvy geek? (Actually… I still love basketball & the NBA, but I’ve lost interest in the other sports).

Let’s get back to one of the most kick-ass TV Series to date: Doctor Who. This show will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and I cannot be more ecstatic about it. Though it is more than twice my age, I am extremely thrilled to celebrate this milestone achievement with the other DW fans to be able to call myself a fan. However, I must admit that I have only been fixating on Doctors 9, 10, and 11 til this day. I wasn’t aware of this show before them.

Due to the fact that I am more inclined to modern aesthetics, vibrant colors, & CGI, I have no intention of watching the past seasons of Doctor Who (i.e. the seasons involving Doctors 1-8). However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t respect them. I am truly grateful for what they have done for the show; and, I wish I was alive back in their heyday! If any country in the world ever invents a legitimate, working time machine, I’m totally down. Be sure to give me a call!

Here’s a sweet video clip I found of all the regenerations thus far:

Since I haven’t watched the seasons involving Doctors 1-8, I won’t comment on their acting or their regenerations.

Doctor Who - Watch All The RegenerationsChristopher Eccleston: Though he only lasted one season, he made an impact on the show. Talk about a man who had to deal with the pressure of opening the show after it being on¬†hiatus for¬†10 years (or, whatever). He portrayed a serious version of The Doctor, and he also had brilliant on-screen chemistry with his companion Rose (Billie Piper). When his season ended, I had thoroughly convinced myself that Christopher & Billie were in a real relationship off-screen (but they were not). When his regeneration occurred, I reacted like so: “NO! WHY? What just happened?”

Doctor Who - Watch All The RegenerationsDavid Tennant:¬†When Christopher regenerated into David, I was confused. Mind you, I hadn’t watched Doctor Who before Chris’ season, so I was a total NOOB. I had no idea what regeneration was, and I had no clue that this show was a long-running series. However, all it took was a little bit of research on Google to get me up to speed. From David’s second episode on… I fell in love with his version of The Doctor. Quirky, funny, likeable, emotional–just amazing. Due to the fact that his regeneration was so extremely emotional & powerful, I didn’t think anyone could surpass him. I was wrong. Before I end this paragraph, I must say that I literally bawled during his regeneration. I was like a crazed fan-girl screaming, “NOOOOO!!!!! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME? PLEASE STAAYYY! I LOVE YOU!”

Doctor Who - Watch All The RegenerationsMatt Smith: His first appearance on the show had me rolling on the floor laughing. I love the scene in which he thought he was a girl (because he had long hair). He’s just the funniest Doctor to date, and he has an incredible sense of humor. Although I love, love, love David, Matt Smith takes the top spot for me! He may not be as emotional as David was; but, his portrayal of The Doctor is something that hasn’t been done before (to my knowledge). Let me tell you now, ladies and gents: I am dreading, absolutely¬†dreading the day of his regeneration. My reaction will be bigger than the reaction I had towards David’s regeneration.

Of the last three doctors, who’s your favorite: Eccleston, Ten-Inch, or Smitty? Let me know in the comments below.
