What's So Special About Christmas?

Well, aside from the obvious:

13 more days. See ya, Santa.

Sorry about the width.

As an old Doctor Who fan going back to 1973, I have to admit I don't like the current Doctor as much as some others. I think its because we know a person who physically resembles the Doctor and acts as squirrelly if not more so. Who fans might be tempted to say "that's neat" This individual means well but can get tiring and wears us down in real life. So when we turn on Who, its hard to enjoy. I stay satiated with Tennant, Eccleston and the real oldies, especially Tom Baker.

Brooke just found this. Its new and thought you might enjoy it.

woohoo countin down!

I was watching some of the oldies the other day. First Doc (Hartnell).

Tom Baker is good, but it seems he's the only one that most folks know of when they think classic.

I'm a bit of a Seventh Doctor fan, myself.

You need to watch them in chronological order. ;)

I just love that joke

"Tom Baker is good, but it seems he's the only one that most folks know of when they think classic."

It's probably because PBS ran the whole Baker series for several years. I don't think they ran any of the others as long.

There's actually three chronological orders you could watch Dr. Who.

You could watch every episode in the order they were aired.

You could watch every episode in the order of time period the episode is set in (as the Doctor is a time traveler)

You could watch every episode in the order of incarnations of the Doctor in the chronological order of the time periods each incarnation travelled to.

The second way is probably the most geeky way.

None of the ways to watch Doctor Who is superior to any other.

The best episodes are when different incarnations of the Doctor cross paths while time travelling.

I have to admit it ... Dr Who is one of my guilty pleasures. I DVR them and then get up early on Sunday morning to watch them before my wife wakes up (she hates the series).

Brooke said...

Beamish: HA! I love it!

I'd need a team of researchers to figure that out, though. ;)

Last night I 'borrowed' The Five Doctors from the internet and watched it. :)

Nerdgasm, indeed. I never tire of watching the Doctor. In any incarnation.

Gator: I remember that from when I was a kid.

Frickin' PBS.

PC: Your wife needs to just deal with it. ;)

Beamish's comment rocks. I'm patial to Baker's Doctor myself, but hey, it's all good entertainment.

One cannot go wrong with the Doctor.
