9 needs more love.

I think Chris Eccleston is underappreciated. It's a pity that he's overshadowed by Tennant. In my nind, both are phenomenal, so it bothers me that only one of them gets his due.
And I think that, in terms of re-watch value, Series One is the best of the revived program.
Shearman's Dalek? Amazingly powerful and tense. Pity it seems to have been ejected from history by the events of "Journey's End." No way Van Statten doens't know what a Dalek is after that!
The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances? Atmospheric, terrifying, and fun all at once. "Go to your room" is one of the best cliffhanger resolutions in the program's history: the Doctor using his brains to get out of a sticky situation, rather than a sonic screwdriver deus ex machina.
I think the low point of Eccleston's tenure was Aliens of London/World War Three, and even that has some truly awesome moments in it.
Let's not forget the man who brought the Doctor back to life!
