Looking back – Season 9 had some incredibly fun episodes mixed in with some terribly bad writing decisions.

Doctor Who is a very unique show when it comes to casting. Even when actors leave and go on to pastures new; they never really escape the shadow of the Tardis (Just ask Christopher Eccleston).
