State of Shock

I’ve already “come out” as loving quirky, so it shouldn’t be a huge shock to find out that I love Doctor Who. I can’t remember how old I was when I first saw the strange man emerge from the blue police box. I know I wasn’t young, because we didn’t get British shows on the 3-channel television of my youth.

This month Doctor Who turns 50! And there is all sorts of Who stuff happening all over the internet and on television. (Last night I got to see The Day of Doctor in 3D, more on that later!)

Google is doing a Whodle.

Seven Science Lessons from Doctor Who

Doctor Who you ask? What is this madness? Check out these links for to get some Whovian background:

And of course, the home of Doctor Who, the BBC has a whole lot going on as they prepare to launch a new season with the twelfth Doctor!

And the Official Doctor Who site!

My plan is to come back and add an update about my 3D adventure with Doctor Who and some fun peeps, but for now, tell me, do you Who or don’t you? All comments are entered into my monthly drawing for an AnaBanana gift basket, suitable for Whovians and non-Whovians and worth $50 this month in honor of NaBloPoMo. Winner will be announced next Monday, which just happens to be the first blog post of December (pause for cry of anguish because a) I can’t believe there is only one more month in 2013 and b) I’m not ready for Christmas!!!).

UPDATE: The hermit went out in the pouring rain to see The Day of the Doctor! It was awesome to see it in the theater, in 3D! Really good storytelling and lots of nods to the past! I won’t post spoilers, sweetie, but will say, it was totally fun! You have to at least watch the episode!

    Thanks to bloggers who have mentioned Doctor Who is passing, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out what I’ve been missing. Consequently, I only discovered Doctor Who a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been recording all the shows, especially the ones leading up to the 50th Anniversary. What a quirky, fun show!

      That was supposed to be “in passing”. I need to proofread better.

      It is fun, isn’t it? I found Doctor Who the first time years ago. Tom Baker was the Doctor then, but lost it again until they restarted it. I will admit that I love it!

    I recorded the 50th anniversary episode and watched it at home. I actually considered going to the theatre to watch it on the giant silver screen. I had no idea they showed it in 3D, too! How fun!

    The first Doctor I remember was #4 Tom Baker. That scarf!!!

      Tom Baker was my first Doctor Who, too! The scarf! The scarf! It was really touching to see him at the end. I guess he has not done a Who special before. It was very fun and very funny!
