DOCTOR WHO: "TIME CRASH"

Apologies for the sporadic posting being increased to...more sporadic. There was the blight. I come bearing temporal anomalies. The best kind of anomaly.

So much swearing in it, though. Douglas Adams reference.

And if you're a hard-core Who-watcher, you need to have Doctor Who Confidential immediately after, so here it is.

Steven Moffat needs only less than eight minutes to rock it. You probably get a little more out of it if you're an old skool Who fan. I thought it was brilliant and great little ode to an old Doctor. Every Doctor is someone's favorite. Even the Doctor's.

That's one of the great things about the show and about those who have followed since forever. A lot of older fans cite the Tom Baker version as their favorite...and he was the first Doctor I watched (in reruns, and then rapidly the fifth), but it was the Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy, that became my favorite...for a while. He had a sense of a dark sinister past, which I've learned was the result of the "Cartmel Masterplan." Then the show was canceled after 26 years.

As I said. He was my favorite for a while. A good long. Now I've got another. I look forward to the day, a long time from now, when perhaps another actor will inhabit that guise and get to meet a past self with a rumply work-suit, trainers, and a penchant for boiling down complicated temporal physics down to "wibbley-wobbley timey-wimey stuff." and put on a pair of smarty glasses and say "I got that from you. You were my Doctor."



The best show currently on the air. Period.
