WooHoo Who!

Two years ago, I didn’t much care what, or who, Doctor Who was.  Some guy who travels in time in a blue box and wore a scarf.  Aside from hearing the theme a couple times and being told it was getting rebooted, that was about the extent of my knowledge.

Well, five years ago, until I’d moved in with Rob.  Then I saw a video he watched of all the regenerations up to David Tennant.  And he stopped on Sci-Fi(before the name change) while flipping through channels, and I saw a preview for the episode set in London with zeppelins, and part of the episode with the tentacle-mouthed aliens.

Then we got Netflix.  Rob started watching the new episodes because he hadn’t watched the show in years.  I half watched over his shoulder when he watched the episode where Christopher Eccleston left and David Tennant started.  Then I watched an episode over his shoulder.  Then another.  And another.  We put Netflix on the PlayStation 3 and watched there.  I put it on the Wii to watch the episodes I’d missed.

Now?  Just over a year later, I’ve become a pretty big fan.  I’ve got I don’t know how many DW t-shirts.  All the scores from new Who on my iPod, and those seasons in my iTunes library.  And I really wanna build a T.A.R.D.I.S.  Cause that’d just be awesome.  I haven’t watched much classic Who, but I’m sure at some point we’ll get around to it.

Do I think I’m one of the biggest fans?  Far from it.  Rob knows quite a bit more than me.  He grew up watching the show.

Hey, maybe I should see if that’s what he’ll learn to play on the guitar for me….
