Since most of my nerd things has some or all to do with England or other anglo-speaking nations. I saw it fit to blog in English.
I am first and foremost a Whoian that is my name for someone that is fanatical about Doctor who ( don’t know the correct term since I am not that kind of nerd) and the world that has been created around the series. I most say I am not that excited about Torchwood too much of a secret service American vibe for me. I like the new series but I am not one of those “young ones” that don’t appreciate the tinfoil monsters and bubble-wrap insects of the classical series. The Tom Baker era is great and Jon Pertwee kicks ass (some might recognise the name his son is Sean Pertwee who also is an actor and appeared in Dog soldiers ) I love the ingenuity of low budgets and imagination I think it to be far superior of any computer effect. I admit some computer effects are nice but somehow nowadays people got so lazy that they don’t seem to be able to imagine some things in their own mind. No wonder we need brain training.
Why do I like Doctor Who so much? I’m not really sure there is a simple answer to that but I love the fact that the series is not all that serious and yet at the same time are very serious and address issues and discuss and you don’t realise it until a bit later. The small things the small gestures are something that I have come to fall in love with. It challenges the viewer but not in an direct way. I also like the positivism that the doctor represents, that stubbornness and belief in something that is important in life no matter what you believe in. I think it inspiring especially for someone like me who has throughout childhood been told to smile more and look on the positive side. To me the doctor is not just positive he tries to be but he is not. He’s very human in that way and that’s okay. I don’t like the big alien threat kind of thinking I like the kind caring individual alien thinking. The doctor is not just a time lord he’s the doctor who happens to be one of the time lords very much like his childhood friend and nemesis the master who also happens to be a time lord.
Series 5 and The Christmas special 2010 (titled A Chrismas Carrol)
I was the first one not to believe in Matt Smith as the doctor. I am not at all happy about making everyone on telly younger just to look cool.
I was wrong, as the doctor Matt Smith is brilliant. Bow ties are cool indeed. I like series 5 a lot Moffat is a brilliant writer and he brings a certain kind of vibe to the series something almost Gothic in its suspense. I love that and I am thrilled he got the head writing role. Of course I had to buy the special edition steel box. I love steel boxes I have both band of brothers series in steel boxes and lady vengeance. Steel boxes are cool!
Not much to say about the Christmas special 2010 since I am a huge fan of Dickens, Doctor who and Michael Gambon. I was ecstatic and not disappointed. Love story and flying sharks. What more do you need? *GERONIMO*
If you need a laugh or dream away to another place, Doctor Who is the series for you.
