Just pingback to her post here! It’s so easy that it hurts. XD
This week I will be fangirling about…
Doctor Who Season 10*
* technically it’s much further along in the seasons when you count the original Doctor Who, but I am just counting the newest reboot of it right now
I don’t talk about it often, but I am a huge Doctor Who fan. When I decided to take the plunge into the fandom a few years ago, I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into. I knew a ton of people loved it, it was some cult classic from the UK, and that it was supposed to be amazing. Oddly enough, my dad got me hooked on Torchwood, the spinoff series from Doctor Who, and despite how much I loved and watched that show, I never really put it together that the two shows were connected.
Finally, after re-falling in love with Torchwood, I decided to try Doctor Who. It was supposed to just be a fun little summer show to watch in the background while I wrote or did my summer classes’ homework. But then it turned into a binge watch that I couldn’t stop. And I was in deep. So what does a girl do?
She intensely searches throughout all of Ebay for the cheapest complete set, so she can frantically devour the rest of the series and stroke all the pretty covers.
So, I totally loved it. I got excited for it. Loved it…until I met companion, Clara. Me and Clara didn’t click. She was the Impossible Girl…I just thought she was impossible. So, when Calpaldi joined on with Clara, I didn’t give him the best shot. Because it was still Clara. And to me, Doctor Who had lost a lot of its spunk and humor and everything that made it that feel good show.
And then this season arrived. I didn’t quite know what to expect, but then the first episode arrived…AND DEAR GOSH, I’M TOTALLY BACK IN THE FANGIRLING CYCLE. THIS SEASON. THIS SEASON. THIS SEASON.
Calpaldi is amazing. Bill is amazing. Omigosh, Bill. I love her so much. She’s quirky, she’s fun, and she’s fierce. She doesn’t back down when she’s passionate about something or someone. She brings the fight back to the show, and it’s something I truly missed.
Calpaldi is at his finest as well. AND I’M SO SAD THAT HE IS LEAVING. It’s like he just got here for me, and I can truly appreciate him. NOOOOOOOOO. D:
And the stories so far have been so intriguing. We apparently all know I love creepy houses now, so of course, I was ridiculously excited for “Knock Knock.” “Smile” was deliciously creepy as well in its own way, and “The Pilot” was amazinggggggggggg. The only one I wasn’t completely a fan of was “Thin Ice” but I still enjoyed it. Lately, it takes a lot for a TV show to pull me off book blogging here or away from my book, since I always feel the need to do something and watch TV at the same time. This season has actually made me set down a book quite a few times…LE GASP.
So, yes, this season = amazing to me so far. THIS IS THE DOCTOR WHO I KNOW AND LOVE. I WANT MORE, AND MORE, AND MORE. I’m back to a fangirling mess for this show, and if Bill sticks around, I have hope for the future although it sadly won’t include Calpaldi.
Okay, I’m going to try and complete the fangirling now. Breathingggggg…trying to breatheeeeeeeee…maybe. Now, I’m a few episodes behind, so I must rush to catch up.
