So, I've wanted to be introduced to Doctor Who for a long time, but felt intimidated by the fact that the franchise is literally generations old. I'd probably be similarly intimidated by Star Trek if I was just learning about it. And I'll just go ahead and admit that I was annoyed by David Tennant in the Goblet of Fire, so that was a deterrent to watching that particular Doctor incarnation. So with the introduction of the new Doctor, I felt like it would be a good opportunity to get my feet wet. Except that when I saw commercials for it, I was put off by the actor. He seemed too Michael York-ish to me. Fortunately the Old Man had decided to start watching it, and I was reluctantly pulled in to the point that I realized I quite enjoyed it. And I now have a new girl crush. I felt a little depressed when I realized she would make a better grown-up Ginny Weasley than Bonnie Wright who still looks like she is 11. Regardless, I enjoy her Amelia Pond. Soooooo, anyone else like the show? The most recent episode with the vampires was meh, but I'm still intrigued. I really enjoyed the Weeping Angel storyline. Sufficiently creepy enough to put me off angel statues for awhile. Not that I wasn't already put off, but whatever. I also like the sheer variety. Whale-driven space ships in one episode, and Winston Churchill in the next.
