Okay, so this is a bit belated (in two different instances), but the new Doctor Who season premiered this last Saturday, and I wanted to talk about it a bit.
Now, I'm not sure if I have blogged about this yet, but you should know (even if this is a refresher and nothing more), that when I heard about David Tennant (the last actor to play as The Doctor) leaving Doctor Who, I nearly had a serious tizzy-fit. It was bad. I mean, they say that everybody's first Doctor is always their favorite, and they're not kidding. The very first time I watched Doctor Who, it was the Titanic episode in God-only-knows-what-season, with David as the Doctor. I fell in love with the series then and there, and went back and watched every episode from the beginning, when Christopher Eccleston was The Doctor still. He only stayed on for the first season, and then came David Tennant again, and he remained my favorite despite all the time I watched Christopher. So when David regenerated into the new Doctor (Matt Smith), I was sure that Doctor Who would never ever be the same for me again, no matter what the next season was like. But as I watched the new Doctor in the season premier this Saturday, I found myself chewing my own words. I couldn't believe myself, that I liked this new guy almost just as much (emphasis on the almost) as Christopher and David!!! And his new companion, too! Amy Pond is like a strong mix of all the past companions, Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, and Donna Noble, all of which had their own fiery personalities. She's a lot of fun: She's Scottish, she's redheaded (and therefore even more fiery), she tells it how it is, and she doesn't let The Doctor push her around. That's for sure. All-in-all, I really think I'll be enjoying this new season of Doctor Who, despite my favorite Doctor regenerating. Which is a huge shock to me.
I guess what I've learned here, is that if I really like a series, I should trust the creators to keep it just as good throughout, and stop having tizzy-fits when they make a big change that turns out to be okay in the end.
...Or...I can have another tizzy-fit when they change something again. Yep, that works for me.
In other news...A slightly belated Birthday shout-out to BBB!!! Luvs, and Happy Birthday!!!
Blog ya later, Miss Eccentric.
P.S. To the TV peoples: Just because I can get used to having a new Doctor, don't go and think I'll forgive you for ending House! Because I will never forgive that, no matter how awesome the finale is!!! So there.
I lied. This is not, in fact, a "directory" as the title above might suggest...This is merely a warning of what you might find on this blog. I believe I have already warned you of the insane ramblings archived in this blog, but I must say, if you are not prepared for the tomfooleries that can be found here, you might just want to close this tab, shut your computer down, and walk away slowly in order to keep your OWN sanity in check. Fair warning >;)
