B is for Bad wolf

B is for “Bad wolf”


“Bad wolf” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

The message of “bad wolf” permeates the first series of the “new” Who, haunting the Doctor and his companion Rose. However, the phrase haunts the Doctor even longer than his ninth incarnation.


Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

“Bad wolf” is not only a message written across time and space for the Doctor and Rose Tyler, the wolf is Rose.

After looking into the heart of the Tardis, the time vortex itself filled Rose Tyler to become the entity known as “bad wolf.”

The message is referenced several times through the first series, but “bad wolf” is seen long after Rose and the Doctor part ways.


Why you following me, wolfie?

All of Torchwood’s records on file on the Doctor’s companions were destroyed or corrupted by a computer virus known as the “bad wolf.”

The words “bad wolf” were whispered to Donna Noble.

Even when the Doctor and Rose said goodbye for what was seemingly the last time – they said goodbye on a beach in Norway called “Bad Wolf Bay.”

The “bad wolf” was even present for the 50th anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor.” The Moment took the form of Rose Tyler as the “bad wolf” entity when speaking to the War Doctor.


Are you afraid, Doctor?

“Bad wolf” is almost synonymous with Rose Tyler, but it isn’t Rose. The “bad wolf” is something else, something akin to a message of danger, of warning to the Doctor.

When the Doctor hears or sees the message of “bad wolf” – he stands and fights, he protects the Earth as he always does but with a bit more gusto.


“I create myself.”

“Bad wolf” is a favorite of mine because it began at the beginning of the “new” Who, which equals the ninth Doctor.

And the ninth Doctor is my Doctor – he was the first Doctor to dance across my screen, but you’ll hear more about that a bit later.

I have to confess I am not a fan of Rose but I loved the Bad Wolf moment and loved Billie Piper when she came back and played the Moment as well.

I myself am not that big of a fan of Rose. I enjoyed my time with her, but I have to say that Martha is by far my favorite companion when it comes to Ten. However, I loved Billie Piper as the Moment in the 50th anniversary special.

I adore the Bad Wolf story arc, I have a Pops TARDIS with Bad Wolf scrawled across the side, and when I have to pick a new user name (say, for Pokemon Go) it’s lately some variation of “RoseBadWolf” 🙂 Loving your series!!! Keep it up!

Mad jealous about the Pops TARDIS. And the Bad Wolf arc is one of my favorites, especially because it involves Nine.
