So my tumblr followers know I've been watching Doctor Who. I can't say I knew nothing about it before starting. In fact I always said I know way too much for someone who has never seen an episode. But my knowledge could be pretty much summed up in this Kate Beaton comic.
Which is pretty accurate. I know some DW fans found it too accurate for someone who has never seen DW but trust be you do know this much and more when you have any friends who watch the show. I have one rl friend who watched Torchwood. I know a bit about that as well thanks to him and other online friends who are fans. But I haven't decided if I'll watch that yet because I watched the first few minutes and I didn't understand a word of the accent. Maybe it was a bad quality video. But anyway thanks to the comic I still imagine the Doctor and him companion simply kicking the Daleks whenever they appear.
Anyway I am currently on episode three of the third season of Doctor Who. I enjoy it but I'm really not a fan yet. The reason is probably that I I refused to watch DW for so long so now I don't want to give in haha Well I never said I wasn't petty. Also I've never really been into scifi. If anything I am into fantasy. My mother likes SciFi but it was never for me really. Oh and also I'm so used to overproduced American shows that have a much bigger budget that I had a hard time adjusting to that in terms of special effects and lightning and stuff. Why is the lightning in American and British shows so different? I always notice that. I'll go google that.
I think I'll watch until the fifth season in any case because I'm really curious about eleven. I actually really want to skip ahead because Amy looks so cute. Priorities I have them. Currently my favourite Doctor is still nine. I really miss him. :| I didn't think I would grow attached to him because I know much more about Tennant but there you go.
So those are my thoughts on Doctor Who for now. I'll let you know more as I watch more episodes. :)
