I don't know about you guys, but i was super excited about Christmas for one reason more than anything else. The Doctor Who Christmas Special!
I know I'm a huge nerd for being this excited (or so my friends tell me), but i needed my Doctor fix. I am sad to see Matt Smith go, but i am
excited to meet the new doctor
in the upcoming season even
though i will admit i was a bit tentative when i first heard he was going to be the replacement. The worry i had was that he was older than most of
the Doctors so far and seemed a bit dry, but the tiny bit he got to play in the Christmas special put my worries at ease. He really seems to be a
Part of the reason i love the show is because all though new Doctors come and go, they always have that common eccentric thread, and they are always
entertaining. David Tennant is my favorite Doctor so far, but i do carry a soft spot for Christopher Eccleston. I have always like him as an actor in
just about everything he has done.
It is said that a person will always like the first Doctor they experience the best and for me that is Christopher Eccleston. He only lasted one
season, but between him and Rose (swoon), they got the restart of the series off to an amazing start with a ton of momentum that is still going strong

have been getting caught up on the originals as much as i can.
As far as companions go, my heart belongs to Rose. Amy was great, dont get me wrong, but more like a little sister great... if you know what i mean.
Now Clara... WOWZA! I am a big fan of Clara so far and i cant wait to see what the future holds for her. Shes no Rose, but i really enjoy her as a
This Christmas special was the most epic so far imo. It was more like a Doctor Who movie than an episode. There are still some unanswered questions
dealing with the graves on Trenzalore that didnt really get resolved, but i am sure they will work that out some how.
I grabbed the quote from Matt Smith as he was on his way out and put it as my sig, just because i think its an amazing quote that applies to anyone,
Whovian or otherwise.
To anyone who is still tentative about the new Doctor, ill include the following image as a reminder of the roller coaster that i think every Doctor
Who fan goes through after any regeneration.
