I really don’t want to say how long I’ve been watching Doctor Who because well, just because.
My fav Doctor is still Tom Baker (Jellybaby?). As much as I enjoyed the campy-oh-look-those-garbage-bags-with-actors-inside-is-really-an-alien-or-that-the-Daleks- had-whisks-and-plungers-for-weapons-and-everything-was-full-on-cheese days, I admit I love the new Who too.
The Doctor played by Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) stumbles upon the Daleks and The Master (Jonathan Pryce) and through a series of Whoventures must regenerate again and again, first into Richard E. Grant, then Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and Joanna Lumley.
Also starring Julia Sawalha as Emma (We will explain later).
Written by Steven Moffat, later head writer and executive producer to the new Who series. This was a lovingly fun & frolic spoof, divided into segments, as the original shows were, with super scary cliffhangers and a very long rehash of last weeks’ episode, so awesome.
Sad to see Matt Smith go, but I’ll give Peter Capaldi a chance, sigh. I still haven’t gotten over David Tennant leaving, or Tom Baker for that matter.
Can’t believe I have to wait over 60 days for the 50th Anniversary Special. Very wrong.
