It’s almost time, friends!! In just a few hours our next Doctor will be revealed!!
I have been trying to trick myself into thinking Matt Smith wasn’t actually leaving and that all of this has just been a cruel hoax but, alas, it is time for me to accept the truth. I’m nervous/scared/excited all rolled into one…It feels like Whovian Christmas Eve!!
I’ll update this post after the announcement has been made. In the meantime, let’s revel in anticipation a bit, shall we?
Chills…I cannot wait til tomorrow!! (Then we can all bitch and moan about it together… ;)) xoxo
ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNND now we know!!
Your new Doctor, ladies and gentlemen:
It wasn’t a huge surprise, but I think it’s a good choice.
I’ve already heard grumblings about him being too old/ not sexy enough (pffft!!!) and that his previous Doctor Who experience should render him ineligible, but I think that once he actually gets going people will overlook all that and grow to love him. It is all part of the Regeneration Cycle, after all.
Plus, I give him mega extra cool points for being a Whovian from way back when…before the times of the DWAS , even!! (http://www.dwasonline.co.uk/)
Here’s a copy of a letter published in Radio Times in February 1974, just in case you haven’t seen it yet. (See the entire thing at RadioTimes.com)
I think it’s adorable that he’s loved Doctor Who for so long, and I have every confidence that he’s going to be a brilliant successor to Matt Smith. (Though I’m still distraught he’s leaving… :((
Now that the mystery has been solved, what say you, fellow Whovians? Are you happy, disappointed, hating Moffat, etc.? I wanna hear all your thoughts!!
For now, I leave you with this as a reminder of the inevitable truth, no matter how much we grow to love the Doctor…
Peace, love, and Whovian hugs to all,
The 13th Doctor
