50 Reasons Why 'Time Crash' Is The Most Perfect 8 Minutes of 'Doctor Who' Ever

#6  The 'high-five'. It's such a simple, funny moment that totally sums up each of the Doctors. Tennant's Doctor tries to be cool and 'trendy', despite his barely hidden geekiness, while Davison is completely oblivious to the concept of the 'high-five'. It's a tiny sequence, and utterly hilarious and adorable. Genius!


A Tribute To The Brigadier

Last February, the day after I learned of the sad passing of Doctor Who verteran Nicholas Courtney, I decided to make a tribute video dedicated to the great man. I only have Windows Movie Maker, so the video (like all my others) is terribly rough around the edges. However, it is from the heart, and is now over a year old!

I used the Sabaton song 'The Saboteur', because although explicitly about WWII, the lyrics describe great courage and bravery in the face of danger - a song about a true hero. Just like the Brigadier! The shot near the end of the video, where the Brigadier and Sarah Jane hug, is ever-more poignant since Elisabeth Sladen, too, is sadly no longer with us.

May they both rest in peace.
