I’ve been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately, especially because of the mid-series finale that aired last Saturday — it hasn’t aired in the US yet, but I found a stream online. I couldn’t wait until this weekend! The end was so MIND BLOWING. It had one of those twists that you should’ve seen coming because the clues were there all along, but then when the thing happened, I was like “HOLY SH!T, NO WAY!” I don’t really want to go into it… spoilers, y’know? If you haven’t watched Doctor Who, please give it a try! The premise of the show follows a man called the Doctor and he travels throughout space and time. Sometimes the show can be really silly, it can also be very scary (just watch “Blink”), it can be dark, and serious. It covers a wide range of emotions, and there’s aliens and monsters and historical figures… oh my! One of my favorite episodes from last season was “Vincent and the Doctor” which had Vincent Van Gogh in it.
Trying to get into Doctor Who is sort of daunting since the show has been around for over 40 years. I started with season 1 of the show’s reboot which aired in 2005 and starred Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and worked my way through David Tennant and Matt Smith’s run. While I did love Eccleston as the Doctor, those first few episodes were a bit boring, so I’d suggest starting with season 5 which stars Matt Smith. I haven’t quite dived into classic Who stuff, except for an episode called “City of Death” which stars Tom Baker.
The Doctor said that the Mona Lisa is one of the greatest treasures in the universe. I like it too, but perhaps I’m not as enthusiatic as he is about it. I do have a Mona Lisa necklace though, and whenever I wear it, I think of that episode now. 🙂
Romana: Why hasn’t she got any eyebrows?
Doctor: What? Is that all you can say, no eyebrows? We’re talking about the Mona Lisa…
Doctor: Heavens, you’re right. She hasn’t got any eyebrows!
