Allonsy!

Originally published at Faith Seeking Understanding. You can comment here or there.

This is me, with no brushing or hairspray this morning. Fantastic!

Am I the only one noticing a certain resemblance to a certain Scottish-brogue-turned-not-a-martian? It’s perhaps telling that my fannish reference point has turned from Harry Potter’s coif in Goblet of Fire. To the doctor. Still a 221B girl, but in a hiatus this long, Moffat is Moffat.

Now I must go. It’s a Manhattan day: therapy, then E&E reading group, then (maybe) movies. We’ll see how my energy holds. But as for now: somewhere there’s danger; somewhere there’s injustice; somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Somehow I know lines like this without looking them up. Having just seen two episodes of Nine and a season and a half of Ten. Because in fandom, apparently, Moffat is Moffat. Also, because Doctor Who really kind of rocks, in any regeneration.

Very cute picture!

This is a really exciting week to be a Whovian! I just want to sit and watch ALL THE THINGS.

It's weird - I've gotten into it very lately - since I've gone gaga for Sherlock, certainly. And there's such a depth of material that I haven't seen, it feels like I'm very literally only getting the smallest tip of the iceberg. I have no idea why the Silence would be such a scary thing, or Christmas Trees, or who these Amy and Rory Ponds characters are. I've never even seen any Matt Smith episodes, at all. On the plus side, I have worked out who the daleks are and had my first exposure to timey-wimey stuff (also why we're not supposed to blink). So I'm fairly sure the 50th will go straight over my head.

Still excited. of course. :-)

You've got plenty of time to get caught up - there's just so much 50th stuff happening, it really is a bit overwhelming. If you only have a bit of time for Eleven, I'd recommend his first episode, "The Eleventh Hour" - it's still my absolute favorite. And "The Doctor's Wife" is a good one too. If you think you might be tempted at all towards the 50th anniversary episode this weekend, "The Name of the Doctor" might be helpful too.

The Doctor's Wife is my absolute favorite Eleven episode. I've heard a lot of Whovian gripes about it, but for me as a fan of Nu-Who, it was delightful and so bittersweet.

The list I gave Marta is a little more extensive, but yours is good too.

Very neat pic!

You DO seem to have the impossible hair thingee going for you like David Tennant's Ten... And it's SO nice to see someone else who enjoys DW. You just have a few days to do a bit more catching up.

Allow me to suggest few 11/Amy/Rory/Clara eps that you might like to watch to catch up before Saturday - the best of the lot, IMHO:

Eleventh Hour
The Beast Below
The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon
The Doctor's Wife
The Asylum of the Daleks
The Angels Take Manhattan
Journey to the center of the Tardis
The Name of the Doctor

Good luck!

That's a great list! I really like "The Beast Below" and it hardly ever seems to get much love.

Edit: Oh, and "Vincent and the Doctor"!
