I was challenged to do the 20 mins challenge by herding cats who wrote about friends .
Apologies for typos , errors and most of all waffling! 20 mins really isn’t long !!
I was thinking about Doctor Who and been attempting to blog about it but I just am too in love to put it into words the time pressure may help
I am a lover of Doctor Who as you all know. I have to confess to being very much a ‘New Who’ person. I’ve not seen any of the classic Who but it is very much on my list of things to do.
I initially started watching because when it was re launched I had a little boy and I thought it would be something nice we could do together( little boy is now 18 and I was right -it was and is )Also I have the biggest crush on Billie Piper so this was not a solely selfless endeavour.
I loved it immediately,which surprised me as I’m not a sci fi person at all.
I fell in love with Tennant’s incarnation (who didn’t?)
I only have to think of “Rose Tyler…” and him never getting to finish that sentence and I well up.
I adored Matt Smith’s quirky Doctor and for me ,up till recently , Capaldi’s moody angry take on the character was my favourite.
Now though , we have Jodie’s Doctor.
If I fell in love with Tennant’s version well bloody hell Jodie has me absolutely besottedly smitten. Cupid you got me here.
I just love this new series …I can’t put my finger on quite why I am so crazy ,passionately … already rewatched most episodes obsessed though.
There are a few reasons I can guess at..
Yep!! I genuinely didn’t believe the BBC would do it. When Jodie took down her hood and revealed herself I cried . Cried my eyes out , my youngest daughter screamed . We just looked at each other in absolute amazement. She was here , finally SHE was here.
Again , big deal for me . She’s not quite Hull (pretty sure they’re waiting for me for that!) but she’s Yorkshire. I read that people were complaining they had to put on subtitles to understand her accent which made me giggle ….come on we are bombarded with southern accents all the time .
New show head
Chris Chibnal of Broadchurch took over the writing of the show along with the new Doctor. He’s had some help along the way . The stunning Rosa episode for example – former children’s laurieutte Malorie Blackman co wrote. It’s the little touches in the writing I’m loving though. The flippant blink and you’ll miss them remarks. The humour .
I snorted in derision at the mention of Bradley Walsh. I am able to admit that. I am also able to admit that I was an idiot. Graham is a wonderful character. Ryan too , though I feel we’ve still a lot to learn about him.
Yaz is my absolute favourite ,again we’ve still a lot to learn about her but she has already won me over. The Doctor and Yaz – 2 Yorkshire lasses travelling through space and time having a laugh I’m on board with this .
So.maybe this is why I’m loving this series so much. Maybe sometimes you throw a load of magical ingredients together and you create something wonderful (probably like being the first person to invent chips!!)
I am so in love with this series and I’m already crossing fingers that Jodie doesn’t do an Ecclestone on us and leave after this series .
I just looovveee her way too much !!!
To give it the 20 min challenge a try!!!
