Remember when I said I was gonna watch Doctor Who? And then I watched Doctor Who, and then I said I was going to write about watching Doctor Who? Well, this is that.
So, I am all up to date on nu!Who (including this current season, because the intertubez are amazing). I shall divide my commentary up by Doctor to attempt to force some kind of rudimentary structure on my thoughts. Also, I should have been writing this as I went along, because I started watching in... May? And finished season six at the beginning of August? And a shit-ton of Life Stuff has happened since then, so don't expect, like, scholarly analysis. Spoilers for each, obviously.

Okay, I probably left out about a million things I meant to say, but I've been writing this for too long. One general question I did have: DW (and Torchwood, to some extent) features a lot of interracial romantic relationships. Are they more common in the UK than in the US, or was this a choice on the part of the writers/producers/whoever? (Yes, I do live in the South, but Florida and Georgia actually have the same percentage of interracial marriages as New York, and actually more than a lot of the New England states, so it's not Segregationville.) Anyway, it just jumped out as different to me (in a good way) and I wondered if it was a conscious choice or a reflection of different demographics.
I started watching this TV show on Netflix. You probably haven't heard of it; it's called "Doctor Who." Or something like that.
So I'm finally getting around to that. Upon reflection, I probably should not have watched Torchwood first, since the tone is so similar, but with extra helpings of cheese. But I think I will come to enjoy the cheese. I've started with the Ninth Doctor, and I'm five episodes in. I shall update you as I progress.
Also, I am not going to ask whether I should sign up for rpf_big_bang this year or not, because I know what the answer will be. I'm just experiencing some commitmentphobia at the moment. I'm sure I'll get over it in the next... day or so.
Final day of the book meme! Sorry the ending is so predictable.
