>Sorry, Doctor-I Was Wrong!
Guess what? The monkey/gremlin has been making brief appearances again. Bloody little bugger! One day…I’m gonna find his hidey hole and do something vile and permanent to him.
In the meantime…since I didn’t feel like doing too much over the weekend, I got caught up on some of the shows I dvr. Up to date: Psych, White Collar, and Dr. Who.
I was a huge Chris Ecclestan fan and was upset when he left the show after only one year. David Tennant just didn’t look like he could be an effective Doctor. I was wrong!!! He was fantastic and stuck around for a few years…then came more bad news. He was leaving, too. When I saw a preview with Matt Smith, I made a vow. I would watch one show and if I wasn’t really really happy with the new Doctor, I’d never watch it again.
What can I say? I’m happy to report that, once again, I am wrong. Matt Smith and Karen Gillian have become a crackerjack pair and made the roles their own. Dang. I’m loving that Dr. River Song is playing such a large role. After meeting her during Tennant’s run and all her hints about ‘spoilers’, I just want to know-when did they get married? Was she, or Donna Noble the mysterious lady in the final episodes of last season? And, what is the Doctor’s real name? River Song is a fun character and adds another layer to the Doctor-she helps keep him real.
The episode with Van Gogh made me cry and the Homo-Reptilians made me sad. It was really fun to see the Doctor play ‘football’ and try to act human…and the revelations made playing the game with the ‘Dream Lord’ gave a deeper, more profound insight into the Doctor’s psyche.
Do you watch the show? Are there and ‘Who-vians’ out there? If so, what do you think of the new season?
