This post is entirely dedicated to Doctor Who. Sorry I’m not sorry at all. Should be pretty entertaining for those of you who have no idea what I obsess over & really depressing for those of you who obsess just like me.
WELL, the BBC dropped a huge bomb on us whovians last night regarding this upcoming season. Let me back up in case there are people here reading this that have never watched the show. Doctor Who is a sci-fi that airs on the BBC network. The Doctor time travels and generally always has a companion. Well, the Doctor regenerations and doesn’t keep the same physical identity (so different actors come in and play the roll, if you didn’t catch on to that). Fast forward to yesterday when it was announced Matt Smith is stepping down from the role this Christmas. CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!
That means he will be in the 50th anniversary episode (yes, 50!) and 32 days later they will air his last. episode. ever. UGH.
Now, I understand this is apart of Doctor Who and it’s definitely not the first regeneration I’ve gone through. But I just started watching the show last year so I never knew when the other regenerations were coming. Trust me, I was quite the ball of tears and an emotional mess when David Tennant regenerated but I now will be in mourning for the next 6 months. Matt Smith was the 11th Doctor..WHO WILL BE 12?! That’s the million dollar question.
So here’s a bunch of stuff regarding Doctor Who that you may or may not understand. My heart is broken and that’s all you need to know. Deal with it.
“900 years of time and space and I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important.”
“I am, and always will be, the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams”
“Books! The best weapons in the world.”
“Some people live more in twenty year than others do in eighty. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.”
“When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.”
“Sad really, isn’t it? People spend all their time making nice things, and other people come along and break them.”
“I know that one man can change the course of history. Right idea in the right place at the right time, that’s all it takes. I’ve got to believe it’s possible.”
“Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way.”
“Go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.”
“He’s like fire and ice an rage. He’s the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And..he’s wonderful.”
You know, it seems to me that there is so much more to the world than the average eye is allowed to see. I believe that if you look hard, there are more wonders than you could have dreamed of.”
“Time traveling is like visiting Paris. You can’t just read the guidebook, you’ve got to throw yourself in. Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing complete strangers. Or is that just me?”
“I’m not running away. But this is one corner, of one country, on one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy, that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never staying the same, for a single millisecond. And there is so, so much to see because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I’m running to them before they flare and fade forever.”
“We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”
“You gave me hope and then you took it away. That’s enough to make anyone dangerous.”
“There are fixed points throughout time where things must stay exactly the way they are. This is not one of them, this is an opportunity. Whatever happens here will create its own timeline, its own reality, a temporal tipping point. The future revolves around you, here, now, so go do good!”
And here’s a poem my cousin Sheridan wrote for a school assignment:
“Everywhere and anywhere in time and space. He has seen it all. Lived it all. Time after time he changes faces, but never minds. He doesn’t call himself a hero, although many do. He travels in a blue police box. Many may say its bigger on the inside, except one. One said it was smaller on the outside. Clara Oswin Oswald. The impossible girl. Died twice yet remembers nothing. A brave young girl traveling the stars with a mad man with a box. She’s a mystery and every mystery needs to be solved. He’s the man that’s going to solve it. A man of many aliases: the raggedy doctors, a man man with a box, a savior, a destroyer, a lonely man, a brokenhearted man, Alien boy, clever boy, the on coming storm and John Smith. He is called many things besides his name. His title: The Doctor. The number one questioned asked: Doctor Who?”
And now I’m going to order myself some Doctor Who leggings.
