DAY 4 – Favorite Character
Cathy: “What’s good about sad?”
Sally: “It’s happy for deep people.”
There have been so many characters on Doctor Who over the years. What’s special about Sally Sparrow, from the New Who Series 3 episode “Blink,” is that even though she’s only in one episode, she’s written so well (and played so flawlessly by Carey Mulligan) that we continue to think about her long after the episode in which she appeared. I’ve talked to people about being disappointed that she’ll never be a companion, I’ve analyzed her over at Tor.com, and I’ve wished I could be half as cool, as together, as clever, or as brave. Sure, the Angels were scary, but the real star of “Blink” was Sally Sparrow.
Well, there you have it folks! Sally Sparrow is my favorite character on Doctor Who. You didn’t think I was going to choose someone as obvious as The Doctor, did you?
