    Thanks for linking this video! Pretty good rundown on Dr. Who history--learned quite a lot from it.

    Many years ago, I watched Dr. Who while Tom Baker was the doctor. I really liked his personification and his successor really soured it for me; couldn't adjust to him. Anyway, what a ragtag run of doctors since... until David Tennant. I haven't seen many of his episodes yet, but I like the way he plays the doctor, probably even more than Tom Baker. The newest guy, Matt Smith, portrays an interesting variation. A little more nerdy than Tennant, but he seems well positioned to do a great job.

    I just started season 5 lastnight with Smiths first episode and he will indeed take a little getting used to, although I'm really enjoying his new companion, Amy Pond. She feels like a combination of Rose, Martha and Donna.

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but I just wanted to make sure we all marked the 48th anniversary of Doctor Who's premier way back in 1963!

    It's been a long, strange trip, and I've loved every minute of it!

    48 years, 11 (official) Doctors, and an awful lot of attractive companions...

    The Decoy Bride. OK, not Dr. Who, but there's a Dr. Who in it. Also been watching eps of The Last Detective. Again, Dr. Who is in it, it's just not Dr. Who. :)
