Mt. Fandom

This post is for Doctor Who fans only.

I love how the day after I say "SPOILER LOCKDOWN," everyone I know erupts with comments about series 5 of Doctor Who.  All of which I read in full.  Even though I know that all they're going to do is depress the hell out of me, because I live in a STUBBORN WORLD OF DENIAL in which I still haven't decided if the show is going to continue after Journey's End; it's certainly not existing for me after David Tennant. 

Speaking of which -- Collapse )

I think my feelings about "Eleven" (the quotes are my skepticism that he's actually my Doctor, because PRETTY SURE HE IS NOT), based on his outfit, can be summed up in this comment I left to fiery_twilight :

"I'd hit that.

Not in the bedding sense of Ten, but in the sense of 'I have a sudden and inexplicable urge to beat him up.' "

Unrelatedly: I stupidly started watching my Sarah Jane Adventures DVD from the library, thinking I could renew Doctor Who because the county has 4 copies and there were no requests for the first couple of days after I got it, but I waited too long to try and now of course it's due the day after tomorrow and I've only watched one disc.  ARGH!

On bright side, this means I watched the Sarah Jane timeline feature, complete with my first-ever clips from the original series, after which I continue to feel validated by my long-standing belief that Three is second only to Ten in awesomeness, and Four is kind of a freak, and Sarah Jane has always been unequivocally awesome at all times.  

Meanwhile, I'd like to restate my pure and unadulterated love for this show, my continuing desperation for the release of an official soundtrack, and my joy over the fact that I love this show so much, I didn't want to fast-forward through a single second of "Invasion of the Bane," and that's not even in my top 50% of episodes.
