50WHO: David Tennant Story Winner

The Winner is:

Human Nature /The Family of Blood

Once again overwhelmingly we have a winner. I assumed it would be Blink but it was this amazing 2-parter from my favourite David Tennant series. The end with the school kids gunning down the scarecrows foreshadowing World War I always makes me weep to be very honest. It’s emotionally incredible and David Tennant (who is not a favourite of mine) is excellent in this.
Here is how voting broke down:

Human Nature/The Family of Blood: 6 votes
Blink: 2 votes

Midnight: 2 votes
The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End: 2 votes

School Reunion: 1 vote
The Girl in the Fireplace: 1 vote

The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit: 1 vote
The Shakespeare Code: 1 vote

42: 1 vote
Utopia/The Sounds of Drums/The Last of the Time Lords: 1 vote

The Waters of Mars: 1 vote
Why I am happy Human Nature/The Family of Blood was chosen: I have said for the longest time that this 2-part story is in fact the perfect 50th anniversary special. It was a way to get all of the Doctors in it plus paid homage to the people who created it and still provided us with an original, fresh concept. This is perfect viewing for this marathon.

Voting for the final round, Matt Smith commences at 8pm tonight CST. I am having a blast with this and I hope you continue to take part in choosing the stories for me to watch.
