Small Details Only Real Doctor Who Fans Understand
Now is as good a time as ever to get into Doctor Who, but the show's long and rich history may seem a little daunting if you're a beginner. So, before you step into the TARDIS, here's a primer on some of the small details that the show's most dedicated fans would catch. And now you can too.
Doctor Who's lengthy first run ended in 1989, and while an attempt was made to resuscitate the series in 1996, it wasn't until 2005 that it finally returned under the leadership of executive producer Russell T. Davies. The first season of the revival focused mainly on introducing Christopher Eccleston's ninth iteration of the Doctor and his familiar foes like the Daleks, but also added fan favorite companion Rose, and a new season-long mystery.
Rose's adventures on the TARDIS took her to many far-flung locations, but wherever she and the Doctor went, the words "Bad Wolf" always seemed to follow. It appears as graffiti across numerous episodes. The Bad Wolf Corporation shows up in "Bad Wolf" and Bad Wolf TV features in "The Long Game."
Finally, in the season one finale "The Parting of the Ways," it's revealed that the "Bad Wolf" is Rose herself. Having looked into the heart of the TARDIS, she absorbs its energy, destroys the Daleks, and scatters the words "Bad Wolf" throughout the universe, as clues to help direct her to that moment. Unfortunately, the Ninth Doctor is forced to absorb her energy into himself to save her, causing him to regenerate into the Tenth Doctor.
Other subtle "Bad Wolf" references popped up during season two in episodes like "Tooth & Claw" and "Love & Monsters." During what many fans consider the most heartbreaking moment in the show's history, the Doctor and Rose say a tearful goodbye in Darlig Ulv Stranden, also known as Bad Wolf Bay.
The "Bad Wolf" reappeared in clues throughout season four as well, hinting at Rose's eventual reappearance. Finally, in the 50th anniversary episode "The Day of the Doctor," the Moment takes the form of Rose as the "Bad Wolf." It's a nice touch, and one that brings the series full circle, all the way back to season one of NuWho.
The Doctor just wouldn't be the Doctor without his trusty blue police box, the TARDIS, which stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. It has the ability to travel anywhere in time or space, and can blend into its surroundings using a chameleon circuit. Of course, the circuit broke on the Doctor's TARDIS, leaving it forever fixed in the shape of a blue police box. Blame the show's original budget.
