I don’t need to tell you guys that I’m a big fan of Doctor Who. Besides, I refuse to get out of my blue TARDIS replica box (which isn’t bigger on the inside) until one of you realises that Doctor Who is way, way cooler than that damn Battlestar Galactica series. For years now, I’ve been given grief over my love for that 50-year old show, but recently, I finally gained a convert. Zoe got hooked on the series in an attempt to give me endless, informed grief and has recently been binge-watching season after season of Doctor Who. So of course, we had to start geeking out about it.
Doctor Who is currently in an eighth season now, with Peter Capaldi portraying the latest incarnation of the famed Time Lord. A role inherited from the likes of William Hartnell, Tom Baker, David Tennant and eleventh Doctor Matt Smith. And I’m absolutely digging this particular version of the time-traveller, who comes off as a combination of an unhinged Malcolm Tucker from The Thick Of It and an alien with a temper that could crack a planet in half.
I highly recommend jumping into Doctor Who if you have yet to watch the show. Hell, whether you start from the reintroduction of the 2005 series, dive headfirst into the cheese of the original seasons or want to start fresh with Matt Smith’s debut in season 5, it’s all good. And wibbly wobbly, timey wimey sort of. Now if you’ll pardon me, I need to learn how to stop pronouncing Doctor Who as if the Time Lord was Asian.
