It may be worth purchasing the complete sixth season of Doctor Who in actual DVD form (as opposed to the cheaper, no-physical-copy version) in order to get the five mini-episodes that comprise Night and the Doctor. The Doctor in a tuxedo, plenty of River Song, little glimpses into the Doctor’s relationships with Amy and Rory — they may be tiny little video clips (emphasis on mini), but they’re wonderful.

The outfit of Doctor Who‘s Eleventh Doctor, along with a signed script, is being auctioned off in order to raise money for BBC Children in Need. I, of course, am not bidding (there are three and a half days left, and the current bid is already 21,550 pounds), but the video they created to advertise the auction is adorable! Also, it’s been over a month since the last episode aired, and I’m missing Doctor Who. Continue reading
Almost the first thing the Eleventh Doctor did was walk into a tree. Fabulous. Also, nice to see that the TARDIS is much bigger on the inside (and the pool is inside the library?). The food scene is excellent. And the scene — and the music! — when Amelia is packing is so sweet and so sad; my heart just aches for the little girl because I know that the Doctor isn’t coming.

As you probably know, I love Doctor Who. And if you do any kind of Google search, you will soon see that I am not the only one. The following are some of my favorite Doctor Who-related comics and other humorous things.

At first, I was in disbelief that they were actually titling an episode of Doctor Who “The Doctor’s Wife” (so obvious!) — and then that River Song wasn’t in it! There’s been this big question of River Song’s identity, and whether she’s married to the Doctor. It’s been an ongoing mystery since the fourth season — even the revelation last week of who River Song is doesn’t really answer the question of whether she and the Doctor are married. I just couldn’t see how they would make this episode work. Continue reading
The Doctor and Rose
When I started watching Doctor Who, I got deeply invested in the the Doctor and Rose very quickly — invested in their relationship, their chemistry, and their potential as a couple. It started with Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor, but it really warmed up with Tennant‘s Tenth. It was in the way they held hands almost instinctively, the way the Doctor smiled at Rose with a special warmth, the way they were so happy together. Continue reading

Rory, the Doctor, and Amy in "Time" and "Space"
I just discovered the BBC’s new videos on YouTube — “Space” and “Time” from Red Nose Day 2011 (“when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and change countless lives in the process”). Amazing — I have been waiting for Doctor Who for so long! Well, really, since the “A Christmas Carol” came out for Christmas 2010. Continue reading
