Doctor Who

I'm hooked on Doctor Who. I never did watch the old shows. Until recently, I didn't even know what Dalek and TARDIS referred to. But my husband did and so when the new Doctor Who came out on video, I got the first season. I thought the episodes were fun, particularly when my favorite character, Captain Jack, was onscreen. And then we got to the last episode of season one and…there was a new Doctor Who.

I was so disappointed. I liked Christopher Eccleston! But, by the time I hit the second episode of season two, I loved David Tennant.

I am, actually, reminded of Star Trek: The Next Generation. (Take a moment to remember my deep crush on Jean-Luc Picard.) I know the show has a different feel, but the sense of wonder and anything can happen, well, that is the same to me.

Take the episode "Tooth and Claw" which has Queen Victoria, werewolves and martial artist monks! I'm sold.

Plus, they keep dangling Torchwood in front of the viewer so I am just waiting for Captain Jack's return. Even better will be watching Torchwood itself.

Any Torchwood and Doctor Who fans out there? I know I'm behind the times, but at least I have a lot to look forward to.
