Holy TARDIS of Gallifrey, I really did not need to become part of another fandom but alas, here I am. I spent the last weeks making my way through Doctor Who and I’m enchanted. This show is brilliant. Granted, it has a tendency to rip your heart out, make you ugly cry and bring it all back together and I love it. I love this crazy show with all of my heart!
AL may be able to love every Doctor the same amount but I can’t. I like them all but I rank them anyway. My favourite is the Tenth Doctor. He is so fast and perfect and argh, I just want to run away with him in his blue box. Ok, I want to do that with all of them but still. With him, I really, really fell in love with this impossible show so that’s that. My number 2 is the Ninth because a girl never forgets her first Doctor. The gap between Nine and Eleven is not big, they are pretty equal in my liking for them but still Eleven ranks a tad lower than Nine. Let’s just say, to me, he’s an acquired taste. He is great but not as great as Ten, I’m sorry. I know this is different for every Whovian so let me have my opinion.
I won’t even go into telling you about all the travel companions The Doctor has because I love them too. OMG. At the moment I’m really into River Song because she is fantastic. And that’s the beauty of the show. Every time I thought I wouldn’t like a change in the cast because of pictures I saw on Tumblr or wherever I was proven wrong. Before River turned up I’d seen pictures of her and thought I wouldn’t enjoy her character because she looks rather old in comparison to the others but her character is magnificent! I keep hoping she turns up in episodes because her presence alone makes them way better. I love her, her flirting with The Doctor and keep hoping she will be around for more than one episode at a time.
The funny thing is, this show is not all about aliens and spaceships. I mean, of course it is but it also tells the story of one man, the last of his kind, keeping the universe save for all of us. He’s got a big heart that’s heavy with sorrow for those he lost and he lost many. He never promotes violence but instead tries to solve problems nonviolently. He believes that every human being is excellent and important but then again, he loves every creature. He’s never afraid because his brain and sonic screwdriver usually get him out of trouble, even if he needs to recreate an entire population.
Thanks to Doctor Who, I will never be able to look at statutes the same way ever again. I will always expect them to attack me if I blink or look away because I see Weeping Angels.
Also, I’ll be waiting for a mad man with a blue box to come and invite me to be part of his adventures; to tell me to RUN.
I’ve watched many shows in my life but now I understand you’ve never known heartbreak until you watched Doomsday and see the person you love being trapped in a parallel universe you’re unable to be in because it would mess up all of time and space.
You can only say good bye to her by burning up a sun which is btw, one of the most romantic things to tell a girl in my opinion. So sad, but so good at the same time.
Thankfully I caught up with the show in time for the new episodes of season 7 that will start on Sunday and I can’t wait.
Oh, and the soundtrack is also really good!
