50WHO: Christopher Eccleston Story Winner

The Winner is:

In fact, overwhelmingly so. I think people have a soft spot for this story because it was the return of our favourite character. It’s very cool!

Here is how voting broke down:
Rose: 6 votes

The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances: 4 votes
Dalek: 3 votes

Aliens of London/World War Three: 1 vote
Father’s Day: 1 vote

Why I am happy Rose was chosen: It really was an exciting time to be a fan. There were no pre-conceived notions of what to expect. Everything was up in the air and anything was possible. The very first time I saw it, I easily accepted Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. Plus I will watch it in HD or at least up converted HD with the wrong font on the titles. J
The story I would have picked: Probably Dalek. I just love the story plus love the new look for the Dalek race. It elevated a monster to something beyond a cliché.

Voting for the David Tennant story opens tonight at 8pm CST. I am having a blast with this and I hope you continue to take part in choosing the stories for me to watch.
