Think about it....
50 years of Doctor Who. 
That's a long time. 
Quite long, indeed. 
Which is why there is extreme cause for celebration. 

*Cue celebration*  

So, want to know something funny? 
Almost everyone in my family is a Whovian. This means that the 50th anniversary is a pretty big deal at our house.
The thing is.... we don't have cable.

So at the time of the airing, we go to BBCAmerica, where we thought we would be able to watch it. The countdown began. And three...two... one.... 


Frantic typing away ensued, while everyone in the house with a computer tried to figure out how to watch the special. We couldn't find anywhere.

Horror set in. 

We were going to miss the once in a lifetime experience. 
No, scratch that. We were missing the once in a lifetime experience. 

And then... magic happened. 
We remembered that our friends up the street have cable. 

One phone-call later, we were all on our way over. 

We only missed the first ten minutes. 

Isn't that lovely?!?

It was really, really good, you guys. It was super fun! And while I still don't think of John Hurt as the Doctor, I liked how they explained him. 

Anyway, to celebrate, I decided to redo the Doctor Who tag from Tasha's blog party last year. 

1.) If you decided to name your first born child after any Doctor Who character, male or female, who would it be?
     Amy. Because I love Amy and even like her name. (and that way, I'd also be naming her after my sister, so it's a bloody win/win.)

2.) What is your favourite colour of the Doctor's shoes?
Oh, I like the red ones.

3.) Look around yourself and name the one thing that is TARDIS blue in your house!
     My TARDIS. Obviously.

4.) The Doctor is going back in time again, which historical era should he visit?
     The American Revolution. Meet Washington. Awweeesomme. 

5.) Would you REALLY go with the Doctor in the TARDIS?
     Eeeeeh. I'm a coward. I don't know.

6.) Who's your favorite Doctor and why?
     Before, it was Nine. I love Nine, he's fantastic. But then we got to Eleven.... and he became my favorite really fast. He's super sweet, but he reminds me of Nine in a lot of ways. 

I don't think he gets enough love.

7.) Would you be afraid to spend Christmas in London?
     Nope. I have total faith in the Doctor. 

8.) Do you look at an ordinary screwdriver and think 'this could be a bit more sonic'?
     Every. Single. Time! It's absurd!

9.) Angel statues, plastic mannequins, Christmas trees - what ordinary everyday object would you love to make an object of terror to Whovians were you Steven Moffat?
     I think cameras. Every day, ordinary cameras that would like... snap you out of this world and into a parallel one that would suck the life out of you slowly. And if you deleted the picture of you, you'd die. 

...... That would be freaky. 

10.) The TARDIS lands in your garden and the Doctor steps out. What is the first thing you say to him?

11.) Who is your favorite actor who has played the Doctor so far and why?
       I really like Matt Smith. He's nice. 

12.) Have you seen any Classic Doctor Who? If so, which Doctor/episode(s) is your favorite?
      I have not. I mean to, eventually, but I'm watching a bunch of others at the moment, and I don't have time.  

13.) Which are the creepiest, scariest and all-out meanest baddies in all the Who-niverse?
      I feel like I should say the Silence, but I can't remember.... who are they? What are they? ..... Silence?

14.) Who is/are your favorite Companion(s) and why?
       Amy and Rory, hands down. I love their relationship with the Doctor, I love their  relationship, and I like their character development. (I also love that they're married and not just together, you know?)

15.) Did you cry more watching Doomsday or The Angels Take Manhattan?
       I think I cried equally. Doomsday was better, plot wise. But Angels Take Manhattan was awful at the end. SO yeah. Equally. 

16.) What is your favorite quote from the show?
       For some reason, the one from Vincent and the Doctor has made itself my favorite. I don't know why. It just makes me happy. 

17.) Which Doctor (including all previous regenerations) would you most like to be the companion of, and why?
Eleven! He's sweet. I like sweet people.

18.) Which of the following are you more scared of, the Daleks, Cybermen, or the Weeping Angles?
       The Weeping Angels. I don't like them. I want them all dead.

19.) Who are some of your favorite guest stars in the series?

20.) What was your first experience with Doctor Who and how did you hear about the series?
       There was a great deal going on about it in the blogging world. And then I went over to someone's house to babysit, and I watched Father's Day and I was like, "I like me this stuff. This stuff is like Star Trek: the Original Series. I must watch more."

And then some friends loaned us Nine's season.
And it all went downhill from there.

21.) The Ninth Doctor said, 'Fantastic!', Ten said, 'Allons-y', and Eleven says, 'Geronimo'; what would you like to be the signature exclamation of the Twelfth Doctor?
      Och, aye.

22.) If you were trapped in an episode, which one would it be?
       I'd be stuck in a library with faulty lighting and shadows that eat people.

23.) Which is your favorite episode with each Doctor (Nine, Ten and Eleven)?
       Nine: Father's Day, and the Parting of Ways
       Ten: New Earth, Silence in the Library, and Doomsday
       Eleven: Most of his. The Vampires of Venice, Amy's Choice, and a Town Called Mercy are some of my favorites.

24.) After watching a certain Doctor Who episode, did you summon up the courage to try fish sticks and custard?
       I haven't yet, but I plan too.

Annnnd, that's it!

It ended up being a really nice day. I wore my Doctor Who shirt:

I blogged:

And did the rough draft for my little sister's TARDIS decorations.

We're going to watch Thor again in theaters tonight.

It should be fun.

Happy Birthday, Doctor Who!

And now I'm going to leave you with this video because it's awesome.


Oh, and PS. Do the Google Doodle. It's fun. 


  1. SOOOOOO jealous that you got to watch the special!!! It wasn't anywhere online for free. If I were independently wealthy, I would have shelled out $30 to watch it on iTunes. But, I'm not. So, I shall suffer and hope for a miracle. ;)
    Aww, you did my tag again!! *happy feels* :)

    1. Haha! I thought for sure we were going to miss it, because we couldn't see it. And it was lovely that we have nice friends who don't mind us crashing their house.

      I feel bad. A lot of my friends couldn't watch it either. You'd think, it being global and huge, they would have put it online for people like us.

      I DID! It just seemed so appropriate. I might need to make it a tradition. lol. :)

  2. Oh, and Happy Doctor Who Day!! Forgot to say that. ;)
