Doctor Who

So, long time since my last post, but I have been a bit busy. Well anyway, it's summer now which means plenty of time for watching and reviewing. Now this new favorite is a bit of a surprise to me, seeing as I'm not typically into syfy type shows; however, Doctor Who has quickly landed a top spot. Following an ancient Time Lord known only as The Doctor, the series originally began in the 1960s and was restarted in 2005. The Doctor with his TARDIS can go anywhere in the universe at anytime, past or future.  The Doctor can regenerate when fatally wounded and become a new person. He picks up human companions and travels the cosmos saving planets and doing good while battling the Doctor's age old enemies. It does sound a bit fantastic and strange,at times very hard to follow, but I've come to really enjoy the show.Currently, the Doctor is on his 11th incrnation, a young looking, quirky, compassionate man played brilliantly be Matt Smith.  His main companions are Amy and Rory Pond followed by Clara Oswald. The main reason I really enjoy this show is because of the characters, their interactions, their backstories and the Doctor's never ending sorrow a regret over what he has done to the universe. Honestly, this is an incredibly well written, funny yet serious show and the cool and heartbreaking thing is that it can continue on with new people forever.
Okay, well I'll have some more book, movies and tv reviews for you!
