March Who Madness
When Ryan and I moved to North Carolina we were just discovering the joys of streaming tv shows on Netflix. When we first moved in and settled we started with How I Met Your Mother and by June had finished that. We debated what series to start next and I suggested Doctor Who. I was unemployed and viewing the Geek section of Pinterest way too much and every time I saw tons of pins about the Doctor. It piqued my curiousity so I mentioned it to Ryan when it popped up on the popular selections and he agreed we could try it. The first episode we were like, "Ooook." The second episode we were intrigued. Then we were just hopelessly hooked. We watched all six seasons by the end of August when season seven aired on BBC America. Every week we'd watch the new episode together on Saturday night and we also made sure to watch the Christmas Special. Now with the second half of the season starting at the end of the month I am becoming uber excited. So when I saw this link up I knew I had to jump on board! Hopefully it will also keep me blogging a bit more!
And you can check out my Doctor Who pinboard here on Pinterest. Like I said, slightly obsessed.
Day One: Favorite Doctor
I am ashamed to admit I haven't watched any of the old/original Doctor Who series. Fail. I know. So it comes down to the 9th, 10th or 11th Doctors. I love all of them for different reasons but my favorite is...
(And yes, ten is a close close second! Because how can you not love David Tennant?!)
Plus, how can you not love this...
"The best thing about Doctor Who for me has been the response I've had from children, both in the street and the number of letters and drawings of me and Daleks, which are all over my wall at home. In all the 20 years I've been acting, I've never enjoyed a response so much as the one I've had from children and I'm carrying that in my heart forever." - Christopher Eccleston
