Finally, it’s out on time

Guys, I have finally caught up, I have now seen every episode of Doctor Who since 2005, it’s taken me since late May, but actually I did most of it in a week :’)
And next week, I start on Classic Who!!!

I would like to make this blog about the complexity of the story lines in Who and how that changes with the changes of Doctors. For example, personally I feel that apart from the ‘Bad Wolf’ storyline, series one with Eccles-cake (Christopher Eccleston) as the Doctor, there isn’t that complicated a story running through it, although there are some truly brilliant episodes in that series ‘The Empty Child’ is actually one of my all time favourites! So in no way am I saying because they’re not complicated it’s any worse!
Okay so now, series 2, T Dawg (David Tennant) is the Doctor, mine and many peoples favourite Doctor! Here is where everything starts to get a bit more complicated, they carry on virtually all story lines and add a thousand new ones which all over lap and here is where you have to learn your history of the Doctor, here is where I would say Doctor Who changes from being a Series to a Flexi-Narrative drama.
Then just when you thought it couldn’t become more difficult or brilliant, here comes the Walking Chin (Matt Smith). Now I didn’t think I would but I adore Matt Smith’s Doctor, I really do, and this series becomes one of the most Complex TV Dramas I have ever seen, they give him series 5 to keep it simple and then as soon as it hits series 6 it just explodes with complexity! And they carry that right through to series 7.
So why is this? I actually think it’s mainly because of the fan base they have obtained, I don’t think they were expecting to get as many massive fans as they did in the first series, so they kept it simple so you could just pick it up and watch it if it was on, they when they discovered that they had gained a huge amount of fans who they (they being the various writers and producers) obviously trusted those fans to remain loyal, which they did, so it resulted in an increase of complex story lines that carry through many episodes even though 2 or more series. And then when they gained a monumental amount more fans, their own Fandom (Whovians) in fact, throughout T Dawgs time as the Doctor, when little Matty arrived to take over, the writers, mainly Steven Moffat now decided it was time to really lay it on because he knew that us Whovians would stick to it and keep watching and we love complicated!
Keep it up Whovians!

Sorry it’s a day late

Hey everyone, okay so here’s my weekly Doctor Who revelation (what i’ve narrowed my minutely Doctor Who revelation down too).
So my housemate keeps asking me who my favourite Doctor is, and to tell you all the truth i’ve only watched Doctor who from the 9th Doctor up, so I have my pick of those three and honestly I adore them all! I love all three, I find their different qualities and personalities as the Doctors equally as clever and cunning and brilliant. However, David Tennant will probably forever be my favourite! His whole attitude as the Doctor, nerdy yet scary when you’re on his bad side, he does it so fluently and with no effort, you just cannot question it, he IS the Doctor, and when I began to watch Matt Smith as the Doctor I couldn’t make that jump, I struggled to adjust. Being so far into the Whovian Fandom, when they changed Doctors it feels like i’ve lost all my friends and packed up moved schools moved house and have to start all over again but you know you have to even if you don’t want to because you love it so much, its like moving house for you family. But now, I LOVE THE ELEVENTH! I’m not going to lie it took a while for me to get to like him, but now, I think he is GENIUS! Honestly the way he is, its so cute, he’s cute nerd and it’s excellent. 
I appreciate that this post has probably just been a fangirl rant, but my little point/revelation behind this is, we really need to give people the chance to impress us and make us see why they can be different and good, they’re not trying to be better, just different and different is good!
