The new episode of Doctor Who….this is what happens when you forget that it’s Saturday, and you spend hours at the mall with your girls. Luckily, I have it DVR’d, but I’ll have to watch it when it’s peaceful and no interruptions. The TV is otherwise occupado, too. *sigh*
Don’t get me wrong. I love Doctor Who, and even though the episodes may not be that exciting to me, I still watch. It’s just taking me longer and longer to get around to them. I finally watched the recent one last night. I’m still not loving Clara, and people say that it always starts that way with new companions, but this is the first one that I straight away have not loved/liked. While I complained about Amy all of series 6, I didn’t mind her at all in series 5 and series 7 part 1.
I know Clara is supposed to have some sort of meaning in this whole thing, but until I see that, I feel like she’s just ‘there’ if you know what I mean. Almost useless in a sense. I shall continue to watch as I’m always faithful to the things(and people) I love.
I don’t really like the terms Newvian or NewWhovian as they are usually used in a derogatory or sarcastic way. I do understand that there are many people that only like the revived series and actually I’m OK with that. While I encourage…
i started with new who, but i like watching classic who, too. i don’t think one is better than the other, because a true whovian finds things to like/love about all of doctor who from doctors, to series, to companions, new series or old. i have my preferences, but just because i like certain doctors, companions, etc., but i like what each character or storyline has brought to doctor who. i’m with nth, though, i think everyone should try watching some of the classic who, cos without it, there’d be no new who. i don’t think i’m better cos i watch classic who, but i do think that i become more educated about the show and its history by watching it. i don’t like cats, but then i am agnostic w atheist leanings, so i guess the kittens are safe for now. lol

The 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special “The Snowmen” left us with a stunning cliffhanger and an intriguing question: who is the Doctor’s new companion Clara Oswin Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman)? Well, as we enter the franchise’s 50th anniversary year, Whovians won’t have to wait that long for new episodes. Part 2 of Doctor Who Season 7 will premiere on Saturday, March 30 in BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday block, it has been announced, alongside the network’s new original sci-fi series Orphan Black and the comedy-variety chatfest The Nerdist.
