The Doctor of Christmas Past

Standard
I spent Christmas day quietly absorbed in a marathon of Doctor Who on the BBC America. It is a method of celebration I can recommend highly. Over the years, I had seen the occasional Doctor Who, but never got sucked into full Whovian fan life until I ran across the reboot of the series with the Ninth Doctor. It’s apparently a common phenomenon for people to like their first Doctor Who best. Certainly, that’s the case with me, my heart nerdly belongs to Christopher Eccleston, who played number 9.


Christmas Day’s orgy of the Doctor, however, was number 11, Matt Smith, the man who raises the question “How can such a homely git have such fabulous hair?”


It was a lovely Christmas.

  1. My first Doctor Who was Jon Pertwee (The Third Doctor) which makes me feel quite old.

    I have to admit that I thought the same about Matt Smith, until I saw him in “Christopher and His Kind”, and suddenly saw the attraction… Jx

WELL BITCHES, it does not appear that Dark Shadows is still alive and kicking. kabuki wins again. victory is mine, and it tastes so sweet.
