An eight-year-old's journey into Classic Who.

The Fan Can: So, what did you think of that one?

Lizzie: I thought it was good. I thought it was quite scary. You know those vampire things? I don't understand how they turned into those blobby things.


It's because they've been dead for ages under the water.

Oh. And those two girls who became vampires, they melted because they deserved to be dead.


So, what was the story?

It was about the Doctor and Ace going back into the Second World War in the countryside. It wasn't very true though, because you can't get bombs in the countryside and in this story they did get some bombs in the countryside. Then the Doctor started saving everybody from those water things. They're a different sort of vampire.


You like Ace, don't you. Why do you like Ace so much?

I just do. I don't have a reason.


Okay. So why is Sylvester one of your favourite Doctors?

I just think he's good. He's just a bit more like the new Doctor Whos, except he's not so funny. He's quite serious. He's got very good anger to make people not go near things that are dangerous.

Did you like that this one was set during World War II?

Not really. Because they've got two things to take care of and that's a bit dangerous. The monsters and the people who are trying to spy on them. It shouldn't be so busy, because in the First World War and the Second World Wars we were very busy with the enemy.


Were there any other characters in it that you liked?

I liked the baby. She was cute.


That's Ace's mum!

I was very surprised by that.


What about the others?

I thought the vicar was quite good. I'll tell you why - obviously the vicar used to believe in God and now he's starting to not believe which is making him die.


Do you think it's bad if a vicar doesn't believe in God?

You don't have to, it's not so bad. You don't have to believe in him. You don't believe in him.


Erm, no.

It doesn't matter. It's your choice. And it's your choice to begin not believing in him, and the vicar chose not to.
