Happy Birthday Christopher Eccleston
DOB: February 16, 1964
He’s my favorite Doctor Who, no slight to anyone else who’s played him (not a bad one in the bunch of them - which is 11 at present count). He’s the guy who helped re-invent the franchise, making the Doctor cool and bizarre and fun again. He left after one season, not wanting to be typecast, breaking many a fan’s heart in the process.
Reblogged partially cos I dig the Eccleston (and Nine’s my favourite), but also cos I like that they specified “no slight to anyone else who’s played him”. They didn’t have to do that. I just think it’s really nice of them. ^_^
