I'm not ashamed.

I have an obsession.

And what's more I'm not ashamed.
I love Doctor Who.
Plain and simple.
Before this silly British sci-fi show came into my life I didn't even like the genre of sci-fi.
I was leery.
I had a friend that insisted I would love it.
Then it showed up on Netflix.
I said what the hell.
After all, Netflix said I'd like it.
Thus began my decent into complete geekdom.

The show is so smart, witty, and about more then monsters and time travel.

One of my favorite quotes: "The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the
bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them
- Vincent & the Doctor

I believe in the interconnectedness of the universe. I believe that we stumbled across this show when we absolutely needed. (The reality is my friend had been bugging me for months to watch it)
Sometimes you just need a break from reality.

This show has been so important to me over the last year that words fail me when I try to explain it. Husband gets it. He may roll his eyes when he sees charges from ebay on our bank statement but he gets it.
Maybe one day the words won't fail me.
Until then I'll just smile when people shake their heads at my devotion.

  1. I have you to thank for spreading the love from you to me - because it took several urging by you before I gave the series a chance. Now, I love it.

    Why did I resist at first? Probably because something deep inside me already knew that I was going to love it and it was trying to put off the inevitable hours spent watching the shows and movies and reading up on it on Wikipedia.

    While my fandom has not reached levels as high as yours, I admit that's only because I have to constantly fight off urges to spend my money on shirts or to totally re-make my entire wardrobe so I can walk around in a suit-and-coat combo like the 10th Doctor (that was a very nice look, I think).
