UPDATED: Eleventh Hour (No spoilers)

I just finished watching the new Doctor Who.  I'm so spoiled; I don't think it's going to air it for another week in the States.   Like I could wait that long.

No spoilers, but I like Matt Smith as the Doctor, and I definitely like the attitude coming from Karen Gillan.

When I saw Matt Smith (and forgive me for saying this) I had this strange feeling that he was going to be the "emo" Doctor. There was a picture that gave me this feeling, but of course I can't find it now. 

 No, wait, found it.

Matt Smith just looked so...sad?  Depressed? Uninteresting?  And the Doctor has been through a lot, so a reflective Doctor -- questioning his purpose and reflecting on how everyone he ever cares about DIES for the last 900 years -- didn't seem that far fetched.  Also, I'm American, so the habit of writers taking an amazing show and then destroying the very essence of it in order to make money is common, nay,  practically required over here.  

Here's my problem with Karen Gillan: she's funny, sassy, on Doctor Who, and younger.  So yeah, my problem is that I'm jealous.  It's the mean way of saying she's awesome and I look forward to the two of them. 

Bonus content: Read this quick (spoiler free) story about Neil Gaiman's experience watching the new Doctor Who titled "How to Mortify Your Daughter".  If you don't know who Neil Gaiman is, go buy his books, right now.  

Quick, Doctor Who outro!  Boooweeeoooo!!!!

    Watched it as it aired on BBC1, my girlfriend was so excitable she was practically bouncing off the walls throughout the whole show :)

  2. For me, it's pretty much magic that I got to see it here in the States so early. That's time travel, right?

  3. A person essentially lend a hand to make severely articles I would
    state. This is the very first time I frequented your website page and
    to this point? I surprised with the analysis you made to make this
    particular put up incredible. Magnificent activity!

    Feel free to surf to my weblog; powerblocks

  4. I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late,
    yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net will be much more helpful than ever before.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone
    and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can
    be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a great article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never
    seem to get anything done.
