Which means I wrote more for my Doctor Who blog again! Bit of a short post, but something I think about a lot. Even if you’re not an active Whovian, this may be of interest to those who remember Tom Baker from the old days.
I said I’d post again on Monday and oh my god, I actually did.
The one that hasn’t had a new post for months and months? Well, I wrote something new for it (and will hopefully continue to do so).
The show runner will all know and love... will be leaving at the culmination of series 10 in 2017. Replacing him will be Chris Chibnall most know for the creation of Broadchurch. Chibnall has a few Who episodes already under his belt including 42 and The Hungry Earth.
Who watched it today? Not many people are chatting about it on ODeck and I’M DYING OVER HERE.
I got it autographed.
I made a Google doc detailing where to find every single serial.
is a look at some hitherto private discussions and thoughts about Doctor Who shared between myself and DonnaNoble. Enjoy.
You guys have probably forgotten DonnaNobleIsMyHero and I even have a Doctor Who blog! We haven't exactly been updating in a consistent manner. But! We've made a resolution to update at least once a week.
I saw notice of this class a few weeks ago on my DoctorWho Flipboard and apologize if people have already talked about it. A professor at Syracuse University is offering an IRL and free MOOC class on the cultural impact of Doctor Who: "Doctor Who in the Digital Age." You can follow it on Twitter using #WhoClass and…
I think this video shows pretty perfectly just how compelling a show Doctor Who is, and always has been — yes, even pre-2005 Who with its cheesy effects. And how a show made for children about an alien who travels in time and space in a police box can inspire the emotions it does in people.
Yesterday I spent $42 on Doctor Who t-shirts because I couldn't decide between the three I liked best so I said "fuck it" and bought them all. Today I spent $35 on a replica of the Seventh Doctor's scarf (down from $55! Come on, that's a great deal!).
Ok GT, I just watched the new Doctor Who and I need to talk about how much I love 12. I won't say anything about the episode itself because spoilers, BUT OMG I LOVE 12 SO MUCH. One tiny scene in particular makes me think he's a big squishy teddy bear under all the grouchiness and bravado.
So I just watched this season's second episode, and I wondered what you all thought about it! Here be spoilers.......
Given that just the other day I argued that we needed to wait and see before passing any real judgment on Capaldi's brand-new Doctor, I'm going to dig deep and try to find nice things to say about yesterday's premiere episode instead of just ranting on ad nauseam.
Looking at the Hiddleston ice-shower led me to the this adorable couple who based their engagement photos on the 9th and 10th Doctors. I really want to be invited to their wedding.
"Female companions in the original show were just there to look pretty, ask questions, and scream." I hear statements like this from time to time.
