Over the past decade, Doctor Who has given fascinating vamps which are etched out in memory.These vamps were outstanding even though the episodes they starred in were at times not up to the mark and had foggy scripts. Listed below are the best vamps that featured in Doctor Who and the reasons they are so unforgettable:
6.Signora Rosanna Calvierri
Although “Vampires of Venice” wasn’t a brilliant episode, the same cannot be said of Rosanna who was a plain delight to watch. She was both menacing and an aquatic alien. The scenes where she tries to attract and manipulate Matt Smith are simply brilliant. Helen McCrory was flirtatious with hues off frenzied desperation. What’s admirable is the way she allows the susceptibility of the character to sneak through her mask of confidence. Towards the end Rosanna is depicted more of a victim of circumstance rather than a monster. Her suicide is tragic and she wants the Doctor to feel responsible for her death. The character is fascinating and excellently written.
5. Miss Foster
“Partners in Crime” wouldn’t have been what it was had it not been for the clever and crazy Miss Foster. Sarah Lancashire’s performance is both humorous and unsettling. It is a bit loud but entertaining nevertheless. Russell T. Davies has portrayed the concept of a bad nanny and a twisted Merry Poppins brilliantly. Miss Foster is an opportunistic female and her moral vagueness makes her very interesting.
