Basically a virtual scrapbook of everything I like from the net and random ideas following through my brain.
DAY 30: WHEN DID YOU BECOME A FAN OF DOCTOR WHO?
It was my lovely wife Christina who brought Doctor Who to my attention after she had been looking it up on Wikipedia, and searching Memes and even doing some preliminary viewing on her own. She came to me and said “I’ve been reading up on this show and I want to watch it, I think you’d like it.”
It was over from there. The episodes are 45 minutes long and we watched half one day at lunch and then finished the other the next and continued forward. We were on a mad dash to complete them until about late April when Netflix access was temporarily shut off at work. We found the workaround and continued forth in about May and we’ve been watching every since. Halfway through the Fifth series (season) we’ve got art based on the series on our walls, both have Sonic Screwdrivers, shirts, action figures and other nicknacks to show our fandom for it.
DAY 29: FAVORITE GUEST STAR
I love Bill Nighy, literally in everything he has done, and to know that he was approached to be The Doctor back in ‘03 makes you wonder what could have been. So his guest appearance in “Vincent and the Doctor” was fun to see.
DAY 28: FAVORITE GIF (S)
I love these series of GIFS because they took her monologue from Doomsday and placed very specific scenes that capture what Rose was trying to get across. There are many awesome Doctor Who gifs, in fact I see them used more than any other license all over the net but these have an awesome feel because of their connection to the story.
DAY 27: FAVORITE INTERVIEW
MATT SMITH AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2012
A young girl was given the microphone and asked if Matt was scared of the Weeping Angels. He asked if she was afraid of them and she nodded yes. He heroically told her that he’d be there to fight them away.
That kind of stuff is what makes me smile and love these actors, their interviews are always great but its these moments that really make me grin from ear to ear.
DAY 26: FAVORITE DOCTOR GADGET
I love the Sonic. It does almost everything, from unlocking doors (except wood locks), accessing computers, hijacking ATMs, healing minor cuts and abrasions to a laundry list of things more. I love Ten’s sonic the best even over Nine’s (Nine’s had a button not the slider) with Eleven’s being a close second (pictured above), I also love Tom Baker’s Four but if it’s Sonic I’m in.
DAY 25: FAVORITE DOCTOR CATCHPHRASE
The Ninth didn’t have any, or any that I could think of off the top of my head. The Eleventh has “Geronimo” which is fun but doesn’t have the same fun feeling as Allonsy, which means “Let’s Go” in French and is a saying that I find myself using more than I probably should.
DAY 22: FAVORITE FRIENDSHIP
ELEVEN AND AMY
This is probably helped a lot but the friendship that the two actors have and how they always seem like they are having a great time with one another but The Doctor was Amy’s “imaginary” raggedy Doctor and once she starts on their adventures together she has that fiery temper that reminds me a lot of Donna Noble but also that child like admiration for The Doctor that kids have for their friends. It’s a great relationship to watch.
