So Clive says of the Ninth Doctor to Rose Tyler in Rose. Another set of annotations for the Bad Teeth Doctor Who: Draw My Life video that I wrote.
Skipping over John Hurt, because I had no idea how that was going to play out, here's the Ninth Doctor played by Christopher Eccleston. Is he still the ninth? Also here are The Empty Child from The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances, Cassandra from The End Of The World and New Earth, a Slitheen from Aliens Of London, World War III and Boom Town and Bad Wolf, a thread that was woven throughout the 2005 series and had ramifications beyond.
