I finally got to watch the Doctor Who panel from San Diego Comic Con last month. I’ve got to admit, it was a little bit weird to watch three actors try to find things they could talk about when we don’t really know the characters they’re playing and they’re not allowed to spill too many of the beans…. but it’s still quite fun. I’m sure Jodie Whittaker will be an amazing Doctor.
Are you looking forward to the return of Doctor Who?
Doctor Who is my favorite show currently airing on television.
Former showrunner Steven Moffat said it best:
Heroes are important. Heroes tell us who we want to be but when they made this particular hero they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an X-Wing, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help and they didn’t give him a superpower or a heat-ray, they gave him an extra heart. And that’s extraordinary. There will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor.
Matt Smith was my first Doctor – 2010’s “A Christmas Carol” was my introduction to the series. Christopher Eccleston taught me who the Doctor was and who he wanted to be when I started watching the 21st century incarnation of the series. Peter Capaldi may have been the best at capturing the Doctor’s alieness.
But David Tennant was my Doctor… the one who made me love the show. And I’m so excited to have the chance to see him in person this fall, even if it means spending more than I should for a few seconds of his time to sign an autograph.
I’m a bit early for National Blog Posting Month, but I’m going to challenge myself to share something every day this month anyway.
Some days, that might look like posting a photo or linking to an interesting article or cool video. I’m really trying to get myself to start writing more often again, so let’s see where that goes.
Happy August, everyone! How is your summer going?
I had some shopping to do this morning, and I mostly got boring (but needed) stuff. But I still have to check the toy aisle when I’m in a store that has one, so I also came home with this little Lego set.
I love the Mighty Micros aesthetic… I imagine that the characters are really lucky little kids who get to dress up as their favorite superheros and play with all the cool toys.
I’m not sure little “Nebula” knows what a cassette tape is, but there’s no reason to let “Star-Lord” hang onto it.
And away she goes in her vaguely generic star ship ride-on…
Little “Star-Lord” doesn’t quite get cassette tapes either, but he’s not going to let “Nebula” take it from him. He hops into his Milano ride-on and gives chase
“Nebula” spends a little too much time gloating, so “Star-Lord” catches up…
And now he has all the toys
If Lego’s Mighty Micros sets look like something you’d have fun with, check out Wal-Mart… mine had some (including this one) marked down to $7 from $9.99.
Maybe your day kinda sucked (mine did)
Have a flower to add a little bright spot to it
