What is my favorite episode of Doctor Who?
What is my favorite episode of Doctor Who? This one was surprisingly easy once I had the answer. I racked my brain for a good 20 minutes and then a tiny voice in my head said. What about Vincent and the Doctor? Yes. That’s perfect. Vincent and the Doctor is without a doubt my favorite episode of Doctor Who. It’s the one I identified with the most. It has my favorite artist, Vincent van Gogh. I love how this episode didn’t have a traditional happy ending. Depression is a disease and no matter how beautiful you think life is or how much you as a person have to offer, there isn’t a cure, you’ll always be fighting it, and you’ll rarely win. I love how they were able to express the truth and tragedy of Vincent’s life but also how they showed his joy and wonder as well.
“The way I see it life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.” ~The Doctor
